Client Reviews

“After thoroughly searching through dozens of options for photographers in the Bay Area, we finally settled on working with Bethany because of the beautiful images that we simply could not get out of our heads. Her distinct style utilizes light filled images, soft colors and special, candid moments between family members. We wanted similar pictures for ourselves to put in our own home!…I am so glad we had the chance to work with her. The photos that she captured of our girls and of our family are priceless! She is not just a photographer, but a magician; because somehow, despite having two crazy and tired little kids to work with and a windy evening, she was able to produce a photo shoot full of frame-worthy images. Bethany was patient throughout the entire photo shoot and had all sorts of tools and tricks up her sleeve to keep the kids happy and entertained through the photo shoot. I am beyond impressed. It makes me wish we could go back in time and have Bethany capture the newborn photos, and even maternity photos. She is truly a talented artist and every family will find themselves delighted to see the sorts of wonderful moments she is able to capture. So many times, you pay a lot of money for a photo shoot and feel disheartened when you weed through a so-so gallery. This is never the case when working with Bethany. Her finished work is truly a treasure trove to cherish for a lifetime.”

“Bethany photographed our maternity and newborn photos and we are just in awe of how they turned out! I am so glad we have these pictures to document such a special time in our lives….these will be forever cherished. Bethany is so very talented, professional, wonderful to work with and can I say talented again!! Also, Bethany works with you on wardrobe for the shoot and has a selection of dresses to chose from if you want to borrow for the photo shoot. I did this for my maternity pictures and loved the selection! We look forward to working with Bethany this fall to have our family pictures taken!”

“My husband and I had our maternity and newborn session done with Bethany…not only were we satisfied with her photography work but the total experience including the products we purchased from her were beyond our expectations. To an expecting mom-to-be, Bethany took away the stress of finding the right outfit. She has a client wardrobe collection which was easy to navigate with pictures.  In addition, she had no problem bringing multiple outfits to try on the day of the maternity shoot. She’s very familiar with the shooting location and was able to give precise directions to the location, taking away any confusion. Her experience with lighting and use of natural light is not just portrayed in her photography work but it’s also due to her ability to identify timing of the day and ability to adapt in changing uncontrollable environments. With our newborn session, she’s shown us her “baby whisperer” skills! She was able to capture our newborn son’s sleeping, adorable moments. She’s gentle and knows her way around babies! We are thoroughly thrilled with our newborn album and newborn announcements. Bethany puts in a lot of thought and details to her products including the packaging of the purchased order. The newborn album is of great quality, the paper quality is thick and pages lay flat. She took the time to design our album and announcement layout to our satisfaction. It’s not an album you can just make with Shutterfly or other online companies.  I highly recommend getting your baby announcements and photo albums from her. If you’re considering maternity or newborn photos and adore the style of natural, soft lighting and colors, then you cannot go wrong with Bethany.”

“I am so incredibly happy with the way our photos turned out! I was looking for a maternity photographer in the South Bay that had a very natural feel to the way they captured their couples and I found Bethany. Her vision seemed to fit what I had in mind perfectly. Bethany made setting up the appointment, picking a wardrobe, and finding the location so easy. She even did her best to make my very nervous husband feel comfortable during the shoot…I would recommend her in a heart beat and would definitely use her again! Thank you Bethany!”
