Creative Session Fees
Your creative fee covers the photographer's time, the talent, prep, design, editing, travel (on-location) a number of hi-res digital images and delivery costs of your session. I make sure that every session is a unique experience which reflects your exact vision in your final images. I am not your ordinary point and shoot photographer whose focus is to give you as many photos as possible. I treasure quality verses quantity and my sessions are just that.
Newborn sessions take place at my in-home studio in Temecula, CA and can last between 2-4 hours. Newborn sessions are a lot more of feeding, snuggling and soothing than they are photographing, so just expect lots of down time. My studio is filled with props, hats, hair tiebacks,wraps in a variety of colors to fit your vision. Newborn sessions are best done in the first 5-12 days of life. During this time frame, babies are especially sleepy and can be posed in those curly womb like poses. An add-on of $50 will include Parent/Sibling shots if desired during your session. Desire to have your session in the comfort of your home? Inquire about in-home newborn sessions.
Maternity photography sessions are for both you, your loved one and are done on location at parks, lakes, fields, you name it at sunset (golden hour)! After you have booked we will discuss location options as well as wardrobe options. These sessions are 30 minutes to 45 minutes in length and accommodate up to 1-2 wardrobe changes. You also have access to my maternity dresses and floral halos to use for your session! Would you also like to incorporate your children? of course! They are also welcomed during your session! The entire family will be photographed first to avoid any meltdowns followed by mom and dad and lastly mom.
Cake Smash Session
Cake Smash sessions take place at my in-home studio in Temecula, CA and can last up to 30 minutes. Cake smashing is such a terrific way to celebrate your little one hitting that amazing milestone. No theme is out of the question! From the elaborate to a simple smash I am happy to create that one of a kind theme just for you. We start the first 15 minutes capturing your little one in their custom theme taking 'formal portraits' a calm before the mess if you will haha. Then the last 15 minutes is used for smashing of the cake! Your decor, colors and theme are to be discussed upon booking as well as any wardrobe or extra props. Desire to have your cake smash taken outdoors? Inquire about outdoor cake smash sessions.
Family photography sessions are for up to 6 people and fur babies! and are usually around 30-45 minutes long. Family sessions can be done both in-studio and on location such as parks, urban settings, fields, etc! Studio family session are done on a simple backdrop that will allow the family to be the main focus. These backdrops are usually simple colors that are discussed after booking. Outdoor sessions are done around sunset (golden hour). Rather than stiffly posing you I focus on the natural interactions between you and your family. I love capturing those genuine smiles rather than shouting at you to turn and smile at my camera. What I will do is lightly pose you and your family in positions where you are comfortable and bring out those natural expressions.
Milestone sessions are perfect for capturing your child or children between the ages 4 months - 12 years. With studio sessions you will have access to all backdrops and props such as chairs, stools, bowls etc. Please note that these sessions are not suitable for cake smashes or birthdays but for simple portraits that are created to remember every step of your child’s development. Milestone sessions range between 15-20 minutes and any decor, wardrobe and colors are discuss after booking.
