Cathy was so easy to work with and made the shoot super fun for us. She even brought a blanket for me to wrap myself in between photos since it was a little chilly. Such a wonderful experience and we are in love with all the photos.Jun 5, 2019Verified

We have not been able to take our photos due to illness but Cathy has been so great and patient. We are looking forward to our session hopefully by the end of this year or early next year.Oct 24, 2018Verified
Photos are very important to our family! Cathy has been our go to family photographer for a few years now. She is super reliable, professional, easy to work with, and delivers excellent work in a very timely manner. We love working with her! Thank you Cathy for all the beautiful memories you have captured for our family!Aug 9, 2016

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Standard pricing for portraits is $275 per hour. Weddings are priced differently so please message me for packages and custom pricing.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?My typical process includes a lot of communication! I typically like to send out my calendar to the potential client so they can get a good understanding of my availability. Once they have settled on a date, I send them a questionnaire to learn more about their expectations and get to know them better. A booking proposal will be sent afterward where the contract is signed a retainer fee is paid. The client can choose the location if they wish, or I can always give suggestions to popular spots based on what they are looking for.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?Coming from Sacramento, there were not many sights to see. Once I moved to San Francisco, there were so many different sights and beautiful spaces that I started to want to capture them all. I started off doing landscape but always felt something was missing. People! I then picked up some weddings and started doing portraits and it just gained traction slowly but surely ever since.
