Can you believe Christmas is only three months from today? I know it still feels like the summer with this heat wave right now in the Bay Area but the holidays will be here before we know it.
If you were still hoping for updated family photos in time for the holidays, please contact me soon as there are only a handful of openings remaining for the rest of 2019. All family sessions must take place before November 16 to ensure delivery in time for the holidays.
I know photography mini sessions are very popular this time of year but the type of family sessions I offer are meant for so much more than just one quick photo for holiday cards (but of course your cards will be beautiful too!). I only take on a limited number of clients each month (and never multiple outdoor sessions on the same day) so I can give each and every client a full and personal experience that also includes complementary styling and wardrobe. Each session is specifically timed for the one hour where the light is the most beautiful and soft. The way I use light is an integral part of my signature style and it simply isn’t possible to recreate this look with mini sessions booked back to back for hours. Even though my sessions are efficient as I know toddlers (and husbands, ha!) have limited attention spans, you will never feel rushed and there is always extra time for snuggles and your little ones to warm up if needed. Parents usually need more than a few minutes to get comfortable in front of the camera too. As a mother of three children myself, I am extremely patient with little ones and will cater my approach to your child’s individual personality whether they are shy and need more time, space and quiet snuggles or if they are extra energetic and do better with being active. I try my best to make it a fun experience for everyone which always makes for the best photos.
There is so much that goes into creating photos full of connection and authentic moments that capture your children’s individual personalties and family’s unique story. My goal is for every final image from your session to be worthy of being framed on your wall. I would love the opportunity to create these special memories for your family to treasure for years to come.
