Maternity/New Baby Sessions 
You dreamed of having a family one day, and although nine months may seem like an eternity at the moment, in reality the moments will pass oh too quickly.  Maternity sessions are a fun way to document your baby bump shortly before your little one arrives.  These images are timeless additions to your newborn's album and are a great way to show off that pregnancy glow.  
  • Feeling creative?  Why not start your package off with a fun announcement and/or gender reveal!  We can create something memorable to herald your special news! (Schedule one or both of these mini-sessions for few quick captures!)
  • Then about two months from your due date we'll schedule your maternity session.  This is a great time as your baby bump will definitely be showing, and you'll still have that gorgeous "pregnancy glow".   
  • A few weeks later we'll meet again to capture your new bundle of joy!  Tiny babies are the best subjects when they're under 2 weeks old, and what a great way to announce to the world that your little one is here, than by sending out some amazing images of all of the tiny details, and what a great way to round out an album for them to look back at how tiny they really were.
Because maternity and newborn sessions meld so well together, this package is for TWO-FOUR sessions.  (Custom monthly mini-sessions are also available!)
The maternity session should be scheduled about 6 to 10 weeks from your due date, while the newborn session should be within a week of your little one’s arrival.  Each of these sessions last about one to two hours, and will include a personal ordering consultation, at which time 10-20 images will be presented.

Baby's First Year Sessions 

Your baby's first year is full of milestones, and it's important to capture them before they're lost forever! (from rolling over and crawling to their first steps)  Life gets busy, and it's often hard to remember to stop and enjoy these fleeting firsts.  This package was created to ensure your child's first year is captured in their element. (vs a stiff portrait studio)  Taken at your home or at a place they love (the park, the beach, etc.) These sessions start when your child is just learning how to hold their head up and ends with patty-cake and a cake-smash.  This package price is for FOUR sessions (at 3, 6, 9, and 12 months). Each session lasts for 1 hour and focuses on your little one's milestones. The package includes a custom collage which features one picture from each session after the 12 month session.   I desired, sessions can be increased to 6 sessions (2, 4, 6, 8, 10, & 12 months).   
These sessions have a special pricing package for prints perfect for sharing with grandparents and relatives, and include one petite folio box image per session for a complete collection when you're done!

Family Sessions 
Your family is unique, shouldn't your images be  too?   If you could do anything, or go anywhere for just one day, what would you do?  Would you pack everyone up and head to the beach?  Would you love to spend a day in the city?  Maybe a hike in the mountains or a bike ride along the coast?  Whatever it is I'll work on creating a memorable experience that you'll cherish for years to come.
 Session includes up to six people (and pets), at a home or predetermined outdoor location within the San Jose/Bay Area. (Beaches and other remote locations may require an additional fee.)  Custom sessions can be created for larger groups and family reunions.

Head Shots

Today's digital age brings your clients to you, people often look online for someone they can connect with, and they usually make their decisions within seconds based not on the text that you provide, but instead on the images they encounter.  It's important to make your first photographic impression count with a professional image people will remember.  A professional head shot for any of your online profiles (website, LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, etc.) shows that you take your profession and personal brand seriously, and therefore others will take you seriously as well.  Sessions will occur at a  predetermined location within the San Jose/Bay Area based on the type of portrait desired.  Three digital images are included in the session price, hair/make-up styling packages are also available. 
If this image is for professional (theatrical) use, the client is responsible for providing any special requirements at the time of booking. (Photo size, agency requirements, make-up requests, etc.)


Tasteful and fun, (Think 50's style pin-ups) your private one-hour session is focused on creating beautiful captures in time.   A perfect gift for yourself or someone you love. Sessions occur in an elegant hotel room, and includes hair and make-up, and up to three outfit changes.  Looking for something even more luxurious? Contact me for a copy of my package plans!
