ALL THE THINGS

I aim to tell your family’s unique + beautiful story through rich, poetic imagery that moves your heart. Portrait sessions include a true collaboration; my commitment and time to creating a fluid, beautifully styled session, Artistic direction during our time together, and a limited amount of artistically-edited, digital image files which are downloadable and yours to keep.  Sessions are taken during the beautiful, golden hour before sunset (or sunrise if possible) and are about an hour and a half long and in the vicinity of Sonoma and Marin Counties (a travel fee incurs 30 minutes outside of 95409). Please contact me for travel session opportunities, I do travel outside of the area to shoot and aspire to fall in love with new places!

Images

Your high resolution images are uploaded to a gallery through Pic Time and delivered digitally where beautiful prints and products can also be ordered directly. You can download all images both web sized for sharing on social media and full size, high resolution for printing. These galleries can also be shared with family and friends and will be available no later than six weeks after your session date. Galleries stay active for up to three months for downloading and ordering, there is a $100 fee to reactivate so please make sure you download your full gallery. 

Prints + Products

Your session fee does not include prints and products, but prints can be ordered through your Pic-Time gallery or by using the high resolution digital image files and your own professional grade print vendor. I do not give printing rights for big box chain stores such as Shutterfly, CVS, Target, Walgreens, Costco, etc. as the quality doesn’t give justice to the beautiful images we created. I highly recommend Richard’s Photo Lab, who takes time and care in printing your image as true to life as possible. Through your Pic-Time gallery you will see amazing print, album and framing suggestions and I am here to support you as needed too.

Preview

After your session, I will most likely post a few previews of your images on Facebook or Instagram. Previews can be really fun for the client (and the Artist) but please remember that they are offered as a courtesy and may take a bit of time. Please also do not crop, print, edit, save or change the images shared. You are welcome to use the images as your Facebook profile picture as long as the image is not altered and photo credit is given. I love when clients share the images to their own page or share with others, I do kindly ask that you give photo credit through tagging.

Before Your Session

All sessions include a pre-session phone consultation or email consultation to discuss your hopes, location, styling etc. and also include a pre-session questionnaire which is a crucial piece for me to have so I can bring your vision to life. Also, complimentary styling support is included with all of my packages through Style + Select, an offsite online styling service or my own individual support. A link will be sent to you once your session is booked with a signed contract and paid deposit.

Booking Your Session

Scheduling a session with me and paying your deposit confirms that the above information is completely understood and accepted. All sessions require a non-refundable deposit. If the session is cancelled or rescheduled within a reasonable timeframe, the deposit can be applied towards a future session. If you need to cancel a session once it is booked, please do so as soon as possible to open that date for another client.

It is one thing to photograph people. It is another to make others care about them by revealing the core of their humanness.
