- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
A Family Lifestyle Portrait Session includes immediate family members, usually lasting around one hour, sometimes less. Includes all high-resolution digital files from your gallery in both color and black & white (minimum of 50), presented in a private online gallery for viewing, downloading, and sharing. You will receive a complimentary luxury album from your session. Leave the layout to me. I will design and deliver a beautiful custom album that will last for generations. The gallery will be available within 3 weeks after the session date. Priced at $950.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
FIRST: BOOK YOUR PHOTO SHOOT Let me know what vibe you're looking for in your session location. If we are a good fit, we will choose a date and get you on my calendar! SECOND: GET PREPARED (WITH A LITTLE HELP) We will narrow down an exact location, use my styling guide to help you build cohesive outfits, and get feedback and suggestions from me. You are also welcome to borrow from my client closet. THIRD: HAVE A JOYFUL PHOTO DAY Enjoy your fun photo experience full of love, joy, and connection. Embrace the chaos, enjoy each other, and go with the flow! You'll love your photographs so much more if you do. FOURTH: RECEIVE YOUR BEAUTIFUL DIGITAL IMAGES & CUSTOM ALBUM Finally, within 3 weeks, you'll get your online gallery full of joy-filled images of you with your loved ones and your complimentary album will follow just days later. You can order prints and wall art right from your gallery if you wish.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I am an award-winning Family & Newborn photographer. I also own and operate a Fine Art School Portrait business. With over 20 years of experience, I have photographed a multitude of families and even more children, making me Santa Barbara’s most sought-after portrait photographer. As a 4th generation Santa Barbarian, I'm familiar with many of the amazing "lesser-known" photoshoot locations in our area. My work has been featured on Trip Advisor and in local publications such as Santa Barbara Magazine, C Magazine, 805 Living, Santa Barbara Seasons, Santa Barbara News-Press, Montecito Journal, and Montecito Magazine.
