Whether you're looking to have photographs taken of a proposal, engagement, wedding, maternity, newborn, wedding or family session, the introduction is the same. That starts with an email, call or text to me. From there, let's talk details!
I'll take care of the rest. We can handle all the details via email. From agreements to questionnaires the process is quick and easy. Then comes the next step, booking you on the calendar! We'll look over that together to find not only the best day but the best time for amazing photos!
This is where we start to work closely together. If you've booked me for a family session, I'll share a family portrait guide to help with everything from what to wear to five great tips for a wonderful session. And if you've booked me for a wedding, this is the time to start collaborating on your wedding day timeline and that family formal list!
Now you can relax and have fun! With all the planning we've put in to place it's time to bring your smile and enjoy your session. My goal is to make it natural and fun. That allows me to capture those intimate and natural moments when you forget the camera is on you.
Now the exciting part, getting to see your images! The process is as simple as a click. I'll email you a personalized online gallery where you can now select the perfect photographs to display on the walls in your home.

WHAT'S INCLUDED IN YOUR SERVICES?
Depending on your photo request, I like to provide start-to-finish services for my clients every time I get to work with them. Whether it's a family session at the beach or a small intimate wedding in your back yard my services can include: scheduling, professional recommendations and guidance, at-event lighting set up, photography, professional editing, album creation, and printed image delivery.
WILL MY PHOTOS BE PROFESSIONALLY EDITED?
Yes, all digital photo files will be color, contrast and exposure corrected. They will be presented to you in JPG format via an online gallery. I start you off with excellent photos in a classic format to begin with, and from there, we can turn that digital file into anything you want using a variety of filters that you like.
DO YOU ONLY DO FAMILY & EVENT PHOTOGRAPHY IN SAN DIEGO?
I mainly service San Diego county, but I can work with you to photograph your most cherished moments at a location of your choosing. Please contact me to discuss dates, availability and customized pricing for out-of-area.
HOW QUICKLY CAN I RECEIVE MY PHOTOS AFTER YOU TAKE THEM?
I know how exciting it is to see your finished images! It depends on your session. The typical turnaround time for a family session or headshot is within a week. If it's a wedding you can expect your full suite of images within six weeks.
WHAT TIME OF DAY SHOULD WE SCHEDULE THE SHOOT?
Depending on your session I'll provide my recommendation on what works best. I know for families it can be difficult with nap times so lighting and timing are all under consideration.
WHAT IF I NEED TO RESCHEDULE MY APPOINTMENT?
I know life can happen so no problem at all. We'll take a look at the calendar to best fit our schedules.
DO YOU HAVE A SECOND PHOTOGRAPHER WITH YOU AT WEDDINGS?
In order to provide variety in your wedding images and make sure no detail is left uncaptured, a second photographer is available with most of my packages. And that second photographer is more than just an assistant. He or she is always a trained professional with an eye to mimic my personal photography style. This ensures a seamless look between all of your images. Please inquire about packages and pricing.
DO YOU PROVIDE VIDEO SERVICES?
Videography is a unique art and deserves the full attention and eye of someone professionally trained for that format. That’s why my focus is solely on capturing still images. I know some great referrals for some of the most talented videographers in the area. Feel free to ask me!
WHAT ARE YOUR FAVORITE LOCATIONS TO SHOOT?
This is why I LOVE San Diego for family & event photography! There are so many wonderful locations to choose from. Some of my favorite family session locations are the beach in Coronado by Hotel Del and Balboa Park is always a personal favorite. And let's not forget The Gaslamp Quarter Downtown for that urban look. I'm certainly open to ideas and new locations so let's chat more!
