How It Works

I come to you! I photograph on location at your home, office, park or place of event. I shoot in color using a high-end digital Canon Mark 2 professional camera. I love using natural light, but will use flash when necessary using only low-key, discreet flash equipment.

Day of the Shoot

1. Before I arrive have children dressed, faces washed, fed and rested. (parents too and any grooming including makeup)
2. Outfits should be picked out before. (pay attention to skin color and eye color to match outfit)
3. Colors are better than neutrals. Labels, cartoon characters or anything with too much going on doesn’t look good on film.
4. Be ready to smile, collaborate and have FUN!
5. Payment is due the day of the shoot, in cash or check.

Travel to the Shoot

Travel is included within Alameda, San Francisco, and Contra Costa County. For other counties in the Bay Area, travel is an additional $50. Special arrangements are available for sessions outside the Bay Area, including Southern California and other states.

After the Shoot

1. A CD of all the images, edited and in high resolution JPEG form will be mailed with in one week of the photoshoot.
2. Retouching (wrinkles, blemishes, scratches) is available at $75 per hour.
3. Black and white photographs are available for an extra $75.
4. Extra CD’s are available for $25 each.
