My Process

I require 2 things when creating portraits:

  1. Beautiful, sweeping natural light (sunsets are best!)
  2. A healthy sense of humor and a willingness to have fun!

When you inquire about booking a session we will communicate via e-mail or phone to answer any questions you may have, discuss location options, attire and timing of session. I primarily shoot in the East Bay but am available for travel within the greater San Francisco, CA bay area. I am also happy to have your session take place in your home as long as you have ample, indirect natural light and/or large windows. After we decide on a date and location I will e-mail you my electronic contract and invoice which can be completed right from your computer. Payment can be completed with Visa, Mastercard, American Express, personal check or cash and is due prior to your session.  

For all of my sessions, I aim to get you a healthy mix of classic posed portraits along with fun lifestyle images that evoke a sense of enjoyment and laughter as well as capture the age of your children in an authentic and natural way. Within 2 weeks of your session, I will fully hand edit your best 45+ images and present them to you via password protected gallery in color and black and white for you to download directly from my website. You own your digital images and can print them unlimitedly from any lab of your choosing forever.

For you and your relatives convenience I do offer professional prints for purchase (never required). Ordering is easy and can be done though my website with a few clicks from your online gallery if you so choose.
