Session Information & Investment

INTIMATE. NARRATIVE. REFINED.

As a photographer & film maker in Los Angeles, California. I am a lover of capturing organic moments and the true love that surrounds those important milestones in life. I am a lover of the calm and everday moments. Most of our lives are filled with them, we want to engrain them in our hearts and minds as they happen. Those little details, the wrinkle on their nose, their laugh and the way they say a certain word. I spend little time posing you. Instead, I sit back and wait for moments to emerge. Moments that fill the air with love. Moments that are true to your family dynamic. Moments that you will value more than gold ten years down the road.

It is my quest to provide you with undivided and unparalleled service. My knowledge both behind and in front of the camera allows me to provide you with the best experience you can imagine. I know what it is like to have a husband who doesn't want to be in the session.I have a two year old who likes to take naps right before a session and wakes up nice and grumpy. And, I even know what it's like to have a birth photographer. 

Motherhood transformed me into the woman I am today. It ignited a raw passion to capture this journey for other mothers. I found myself felling lost in the mundane yet, overly joyed to be in the midst of true love. This journey is so fleeting and it is so easy to get lost in the day to day. I don't want that for you. I don't want that for your family. You deserve to be in the photograph. Let me take care of that. 

Please don’t forget that I offer payment plans. I know what it is like to save and save for a special family session each year and I allow you to do that without breaking the bank all at once. Just let me know what package interests you and we can work out the details.

What a birth session is like.

Regardless of how you give birth; in a hospital, birth center, or home, the day you become a mother is one of the most life defining moments of your life. A birth session is unlike any other session. I capture moments you otherwise wouldn't see and moments you want to remember forever.

Meeting you is a very important part of the process and the last thing you need is a stranger hanging around while you are laboring. So having a quick cup of coffee or tea, makes it so that I am not a stranger. I want to know your story. We will also discuss your birth expectations, birth history, what to expect from me, when to call me and what moments you wish captured the most. 

The birth session includes coverage of active labor (either in your home, birthing center or in the hospital), the birth itself and up to two- four hours after. This is usually when baby’s siblings and grandparents arrive, I love to capture those first meetings. I capture the entire story and not just snips and pieces. I am on-call 24/7 for your ENTIRE "guess month". Births outside a 40 mile radius from zipcode 91350 will incur a travel fee. Please inquire with your zipcode.

I photograph with top of the line Nikon equipment. Nikon D750 & Nikon D800. I use 24mm, 35mm, 50mm & 85mm lenses. Since I photograph with professional equipment my ability to capture your story without the use of flash is my genius. But, there are moments in which flash is necessary and that will be up to you to decide. Each one of your images is edited not only for color correction, but also for individual style.

I currently only book three births a month. This allows 100%  love & service to my clients AND to my family. So the sooner you tell me your thinking of booking the better!

I want you to be able to enjoy your photographs in your hands and on your walls. Your photographs are timeless heirlooms that will be passed down for generations.

All the packages I offer include a handmade wooden box with 4x6 proofs AND digital copies on a beautiful USB.  If digital is all you want then, I may not be the photographer for you.

Why is that you ask? Well, if you were to be handed a floppy disc with images of your family members, would you be able to open the files?

What if I handed you a wood box with prints? Technology changes, it wouldn't be technology if it didn't. I am here to ensure the classic print stays forever.
