Currently booking fall 2020 and spring 2021... grab a session, 2020 is almost fully booked!

In-Home Newborn Photography

Bringing home your new baby is something you will never forget! Let me help you document this special moment with timeless lifestyle portraits of you and your little one.


The session typically lasts around 90 minutes and includes photos of the baby alone, the baby with parents, the baby with siblings, and of course the baby with pets!


My greatest gift during this session is my calming presence. I keep the session very relaxed and I will direct you through the whole experience! I like to do these newborn sessions during the first 4 weeks of the baby's life.


That being said, if you need more time to recover and wrap your brain around photos, that is great too! My style is all about real moments and real life, so the timing is the least important factor.

Family Lifestyle Portraits

What can you expect during a family photoshoot with me? You can expect a lot of direction, guidance, laughing, tickling, and playing! This is not a photoshoot where you stand in the same position for an hour. I love natural and real interactions, so my goal is to keep the kids happy and engaged the whole time!


The session typically lasts 60 minutes and I guarantee at least 60 artistically edited images from our session together (usually much more!)


I have plenty of great outdoor locations to suggest in the Bay Area. Some clients prefer to do the session in the comfort of their home/backyard and that is great too!


Most of my clients choose to do yearly family photos in the fall for their holiday cards, so keep that in mind if you want to book a session! August-November tends to book up quickly!


Maternity Portraits

I love documenting pregnancies! It is such a magical moment where you are carrying around another soul in your body. It's truly a miracle and it's always so awesome to witness!


The maternity session takes place outdoors (I have a lot of great location recommendations) or in the comfort of your home. These sessions last around 1 hour and include photos with your immediate family members (spouse, partner, kids, even dogs!)


These sessions typically take place between 32-36 weeks, but they can really happen at any point once you have a visible bump! I can help guide you on wardrobe to make sure you feel beautiful and comfortable on the day of the session!


Most of my maternity clients choose to add-on a newborn session to make a special package.


What the faq?

When should I book a session?

I have limited space on the weekends, so those book up quickly. If you have a date in mind, it's best to reach out early to make sure you get it! Most of my pregnant clients choose the Bump to Baby Package, which is a great way to get those adorable newborn photos too! Newborn sessions take place within the first month of the birth, so you can book that during your pregnancy or after the baby is born.

Where do you shoot?

The majority of my sessions take place in San Francisco. The newborn session take place in your home. I live in the North Bay, so that is also included as an option for photoshoot locations. I can also travel to the East Bay and Peninsula, depending on availability, but there is a travel fee of $150.

Will you help us during the session?

Yes, yes yes. I will not leave you hanging. I will guide you and pose you so you are in the best light, then let the interaction happen naturally. I know most people think they are not "good at taking pictures," but you don't need to do anything. Just be yourself!

When will we get our images?

Within 2 weeks after the session you will receive an email with your gallery link. The gallery will never expire, so you can always log back in to download, share, and order prints/albums.
