Expect giggles, belly laughs, and fun! Your session is only limited by your imagination. Does your family enjoy hiking? Let’s head out to your favorite trail.

All your lifestyle outdoor family session questions answered
When should I book my family session?
My calendar fills up quickly, especially during the fall, so I encourage you to book early. I open my calendar 3 months in advance, but I’m happy to book further out if you have a date in mind.
When should I schedule my outdoor family session?
Session can be done at anytime, but light is a big consideration. Unless the space has lots of shade, it is best to schedule your session early morning or late afternoon.
What is A Day in Life Photography?
For me, A Day in Life photography is about capturing real people, real relationships, real personalities, real emotions, and real moments. It’s about capturing your life, just as it is now.
It’s about capturing moments that happen in your everyday life: the laughter, the cuddles, and all of the love.
Do you have suggestions about what to wear for our session?
Absolutely. It’s very simple. Wear what makes you, you! There’s no need to go out and buy a fancy outfit. If you’re a jeans and t-shirt kind of person, come as you are! I’m capturing the authentic you, so just show up as yourself. While I don’t have a style guide, I do offer suggestions.
How many images are in a typical gallery, and can I select which images I want to download?
I capture many images during your session. Each image is carefully reviewed to ensure that you receive the very best images that tell your story. Once I have selected the images that represent my work and your story, the edited images will be uploaded to your gallery. RAW and unedited images will not be delivered as they are not representative of my work.
You are able to choose the images from your gallery that you wish to download as part of your collections.
There are usually 50-100 edited images in every gallery.
Are you vaccinated for Covid?
You bet! I’m also up-to-date with pertussis and whooping cough vaccines, so you can rest easy when I’m with your family.
“Life is the flower for which love is the honey.”
Do you charge a travel fee?
My sessions take me to the East Bay, South Bay, North Bay, and Peninsula. There is no travel fee for clients that live within 50 miles of Oakland. There is a $100 fee for locations more than 50 miles away.
Do you offer prints or albums?
Yes! I have always loved to look at photo albums and my home is filled with images of my family. My hope is that every client will turn their images into works of art that will be treasured for years to come. You will have the option to purchase prints, wall art, and albums through your gallery. All products are processed through a professional lab only available to professional photographers to ensure the best quality. I only guarantee quality on products ordered through your gallery.
Do you offer gift certificates?
I sure do. You can choose which collection you would like to gift. The recipient can also choose to upgrade their collection after the session. You can purchase gift certificates, HERE.
What can I expect during and after the session?
You can expect a relaxed experience both during and after your session. Once you’re booked I will send you a link with all the details.
Do you charge a session fee?
I don’t charge a session fee, but I do charge a $250 retainer to hold your date. The retainer is applied to the collection you choose. The retainer is non-refundable.
