Introduction: As a true artist at heart I believe that it is important to incorporate artistry into each photograph that I take. You will find more about how I approach each genre of photography below. Portrait Photography: Portrait photography is what memories are made of. This genre definitely is important to capture a specific moment (graduation, maternity, family portrait etc) in a way that reflects the personality of the subject being photographed. I like to discuss with clients ahead of time what their goals are for their photography session. Questions that might come up are : Do you want to include props? What time of day would you like your photographs done? What type of clothing is best for your session? Architectural Photography: I work with my clients to help tell the story of the house from a photographic and visual standpoint. As a result, a property will be showcased with all of it's beauty and integrity. I continue to perfect my craft all while keeping up with the current trends in architectural photography. Headshot photography: I believe that a great headshot is essential to your professional business image. Depending on what type of style you like (dramatic, natural lighting, etc) I like to discuss these details with the client beforehand to ensure that you get the headshot that you desire.

I wish I could upload more photos, Desiree is PERFECT at capturing moments and did everything perfect. With the original plans being changed due to the ongoing forest fires in california, she CONSTANTLY communicated and went above and beyond, as well as planned backup spots, went ahead of time to scout out areas for me, it was unreal how helpful and thorough she was. She has extensive experience in filming TV Shows, movies, and various other things that doesn't show up on here. I am a Federal Highway Engineer and its my job to find things wrong with multi million dollar construction projects, point to things that could go wrong ahead of time, as well as ensure everyone is doing what they need to do. In my professional opinion, she could not have done more, she satisfied every requirement, AND THEN SOME. My original reason for going with her was because she was better priced, and after seeing these pictures, she is simply better at her job than everyone else on Thumbtack as well. Thank you again Desiree, and I will be using/recommending you in the future!

The project I had ended up requiring some very last minute planning, flexibility, and a little bit of acting (it was for a semi-surprise proposal) that Desiree was able to work through very professionally. Everything went perfect when and where it mattered and she ultimately produced some great results! Thanks again for everything!

Working with Desiree was great! Loved how patient she was with our newborn. She worked with us on different poses and took her time. Loved our family pictures! Will definitely keep her in mind for our next session!

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

    I will send an initial price quote for your photography request. Feel free to ask me about pricing. Possible questions might be: how much do additional photos cost, how many photos do I need, etc.

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

    After the initial price quote and contact, I like to ask the client if they have any specific questions about the photo shoot and pricing. Once everything is finalized, I like to spend a couple minutes just talking about any creative ideas or specifics that the client wants for their photos. This helps both of us be on the same page from start to finish of the photo shoot.

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

    I have a bachelor's degree in English/studio art from Saint Mary's College of California. I also have a work background in media/tv production which has given me photography/lighting skills that I would not have otherwise. I have also worked in customer service and as a childcare nanny. I believe in a friendly and personal approach that lets clients feel at ease during the photo session.
