Going on a trip to Cali!!! Spring Mini and Full Sessions- California Clients only!

Thursday, April 7th, 2016

YES!  It’s true!  I’m coming back to my hometown of San Jose, CA.  I can’t wait to see you all!  Please read these instructions before registering for your Mini or Full session spot.  Here’s all the info you’ll need!  I”ll be updating this page as questions come in… hopefully I’ve anticipated all of the questions you might have in advance so this isn’t confusing.  But if it IS confusing, please forgive this crazy lady of yours ;)))


You can register for a Mini session (ONE 15 minute slot) or a FULL session (FOUR 15 minute slots.)  So the mini’s are 15 minutes long, and the full sessions are one hour long.  I might need to adjust your time plus or minus a couple of slots as registration is filled and the need arises.   Please only choose one or the other.  The sign up link will be LIVE at 8pm PST, April 7th, 2016.



Be SURE to schedule your slot around your baby’s nap time!!!!  You do NOT want a fussy baby.  The best trick for getting great photographs is to come right AFTER nap time.  So plan accordingly.  Please do not schedule for anyone other than yourself.  Please do not erase anyone elses name or position and put your own.


PAYMENT/Retainer fee/Refunds:

Session fee’s are due the day of your photo session.  You’ll need to put down a retainer fee to hold your spot.  It’s $50 and is non refundable, payable through paypal to    In the case that your child is ill, if you or I can find a replacement for your spot I do offer a partial refund of $25.  Payment is due the day of your session in full.  You can always purchase extra photos after you view your online gallery.  (See “Purchases”.)   Please bring CASH OR CHECK ONLY to your session.



Extra digital images are $50 for each digital image, emailed to you with the print release.  All images purchased are fully edited, high resolution images.  Prints, Canvases, and other products are available for purchase as well through your online gallery.



Full sessions include either one child, or your whole (immediate) family (depending on your package option.)  Full pricing is listed here for convenience.  For each extra person in the mini sessions, please add $50 per person.


Are you ready to sign up?  Please do it from your regular computer, as cell phones and/or tablets may have a hard time with this kind of link.
