Playful, fun, interactive - these are the words that describe a Bay Area family photography session with me. Children love to play, so play is what we'll do! I'll guide you with prompts and poses so that everyone feels comfortable in front of my camera. We're creating artwork for your home, so most of all we want to showcase connection and beauty for you to admire on your walls.
“In family life, love is the oil that eases friction, the cement that binds closer together, and the music that brings harmony.” - Nietzsche
Let's start the conversation about your San Francisco Bay Area family photography session! Fill out my contact form, and I'll be in touch shortly to go over the details. The more information you provide on the form, the better!
1. Say Hello
2. Let's book!
Once we find a date that works for both of us, I'll send you a contract and invoice for your retainer. This is what gets your time slot reserved on my calendar! Your session date and time are secured once the contract is signed and the retainer is paid.
A few weeks before your session, we'll meet (usually over Zoom) to plan all the details of your session. From location, to wardrobe, to timing, we'll knock out all of the details together. This meeting is so helpful to make sure we're on the same page and prevent an overload of back-and-forth emails.
3. ask me Anything
On the day of your session, we'll meet at the planned location and time. Some people are more comfortable in front of my camera than others, but take comfort knowing that however you feel, I'll help you with prompts and poses to look your best. I aim for a playful and relaxed session to capture those natural smiles. I completely expect kids to act their ages, so I do my very best to make it fun for them with silly games!
4. Your Photo Sesssion
The most exciting part of the process is your gallery reveal! Two weeks after your session, you'll receive a link to your gallery where you'll see a slideshow of all your beautiful images. This is when you'll select how many you'd like to order, as well as purchase any wall art, albums or prints. I'm here to help with the design if you need it!
5. your Gallery Reveal
Digital collections start at just $1000
To book a session, a $300 retainer and signed contract are required. You'll order your digital images, prints and products after you view your images in your online gallery about two weeks after your session. Your retainer will be put towards your purchase. Please inquire for detailed pricing information.
She can do it all and makes taking photographs a fun and memorable experience (even when your newborn won’t sleep or your toddler doesn’t want to take photos). Laura is so patient and kind and makes you feel so comfortable while taking your picture. Her new photobook and canvas offerings are also beautiful and of such high quality. I just cannot recommend Laura enough!
maternity, newborn and family sessions
Laura was also great at calming my baby down! She handled my daughter as if she was family, super sweet and loving! Thank you Laura for such a great experience!
Laura made the whole process so easy. She met us there and knew of some places there with great trees and light that we walked to before doing pictures on the beach. She knew the perfect time to be there to get the perfect light. She was wonderful with my 6 and 8 year old boys. She was also very helpful with outfit ideas and poses. We got our pictures recently and they are amazing! I would highly recommend Laura!
The whole process was seamless. After selecting a date and location, Laura sent over some links on outfit ideas that she thought would work well with our location. She also took the time to get to know details about my children before the session so she could easily engage with them. The day of the session, she offered suggestions for different poses, but also fed off the energy of my two little kids.
Laura’s service and product was amazing from the beginning to the end. One important service that makes her business stand out is that she helps you to setup the photos at your home. She helps to design your wall with recommendations of print sizes. If this service wasn’t provided I’m not sure how long it would take for us to take the time to print out the pictures let alone figure out what to print. She really takes care of you from the beginning to the end.
