Introduction: COVID, what am I doing to protect my clients and myself? Hello everyone! Before reading on about who I am as a photographer, I'd like for you to know what I am doing to protect you as well as myself from COVID. • I regularly test for COVID • During our session, I will be wearing a face mask. I will have hand sanitizer for us to use as well. • I wash my hands prior to our session and regularly monitor my temperature • I disinfect my gear between clients • If you are experiencing any symptoms, I ask that you please cancel our session and reschedule. I will not charge a last minute cancellation fee. Now, as your photographer! I am a freelance photographer that enjoys getting creative with my photographs to achieve a look that is unique to my skills and abilities. I'm passionate about photography and take pride in my craft. For me, it’s not about taking 1 picture then onto the next pose. I take several pictures during a session and even on a single pose to capture the right moment. With that being said, I am patient with the process. I love children and animals as I am a mom (& fur mom) myself! So when doing family, toddler, or newborn portraits, I understand children’s or fur children’s needs and work with them and the parents to create memorable photographs. As for my quotes, I understand times are hard especially with the impact COVID has had on many families. Please feel free to still reach out and perhaps we can somehow meet in the middle.

Ruby photographed my recent baby shower in Alameda. She was sweet and professional throughout the entire process and her turn around on providing the final, touched up album was very quick. The photos came out beautifully, especially the portrait shots -- everyone looked amazing! I'm so glad Ruby was there to capture this special event.

Ruby was very personable to work with and was very responsive to my needs for my party. She easily took pictures of me and my guests and took some nice details of the party for me to remember. I appreciate someone is who is very professional, quick to reply, and reasonably priced. I will use Ruby for my PhD graduation in 2021. 👍🏽👍🏽😊😊🥂

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    I try to make my rates fair by considering time, effort, and the amount of work I put into the photographs (i.e. touch ups, travel time, how long I’d be working while standing, etc.). However, I do my best to meet customer needs.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    After setting a booking, I like to have a brief phone call to make sure I understand all the details. This allows me to plan ahead for each session. Although messaging is fine, phone consults help clarify any questions and prevent miscommunication.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I’ve taken a course in college (using a manual, film camera) that taught me various techniques and knowledge that I carry with me today. I also continue to take online courses through Udemy as needed. I am experienced with Photoshop and Light Room
