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.

Desiree was awesome to work with! We had a call to discuss the parameters of the project. The day of the event, Desiree was punctual, polite, and very professional. She was great with candid photos and group shots. I highly recommend Desiree and her services!

I had booked Desiree for a honeymoon photoshoot in Yosemite and the experience was amazing! The photos she took are absolutely beautiful and we had so much fun on the shoot! We traveled from Pennsylvania and we had never been to Yosemite before. Desiree gave me a call after I had sent a message and throughly discussed all of the details and really made setting up this shoot a stress free experience. Desiree went above and beyond for us. When we were getting ready to drive to Yosemite from our first stop, I realized I forgot to pack my veil and flowers from my wedding. Desiree found me a veil and flowers for the shoot! They really made these photos special. I highly recommend Desiree’s Photography and if we ever make it back out west would love to have more moments captured by her!

FAQs

  • 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.
