My style is relaxed and minimalistic. I prefer to capture your family as you are, in this stage of life. I don’t use many props, I want to keep the focus on what matters. Let’s document your baby’s wobbly first steps, your child’s two front teeth missing, the chaos of a family session with your stubborn toddler, all the things you’ll want to look back on and remember. I love interaction, so by all means, play with your kids, squeeze your spouse, laugh with your loved ones. I aim to capture reality. I don’t put a strict time limit on sessions, though a typical session will last an hour. (Newborn sessions can last 2-3 hours.) Images will be fully edited, and placed into a password protected gallery for you to view, download and share within 14 days of the session date.
**Outdoor sessions begin roughly one hour before sunset.

Let’s capture every bit of your brand new bundle in a sweet and simple way. Newborn sessions take place in the first month after baby’s birth. Session will take place in my natural light studio in the East Bay (Castro Valley, 94546). Parents, siblings & pets are included! Newborn sessions last around 2 hours.
I suggest maternity sessions to take place between 30-36 weeks. In my opinion… bigger is better! I love a nice round belly for pictures. Why not capture the full potential? There will be plenty of time to change clothes if you’d like. I have several website suggestions for maternity dresses if you need some help shopping! Maternity sessions usually take about one hour.
Let’s have FUN! Come prepared to play, laugh, move around and have a great time with the ones you love most! Please dress your family comfortably! A child (or husband…) who is uncomfortable in their clothing is going to show that discomfort in the photos. Keep in mind we will probably be outdoors, and possibly sitting in the grass, dirt, etc. I am happy to help with wardrobe choices although I’m unfortunately no fashionista. I don’t put strict time limits on family sessions, but they usually last 45-60 min.
