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!
Or, if you're ready to book, you can click here and select a date on my calendar!
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 $675
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.
Every single shot taken is beautiful! Laura is SO good at what she does. Not only that but she's an amazingly kind person as well. If you want to capture beautiful memories then look no further!!
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!
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 was recommended to us for newborn pics and I’m so thankful for our experience with her! It was important for me to have newborn pics in our home for comfort and Laura did an amazing job working within our home. She was so gentle and patient with our little one. With Laura, it felt like we just had a friend loving on our baby and I couldn’t be more pleased! You need to hire her.
Laura’s service and product was amazing from the beginning to the end. We are so amazed by her talent of capturing the moment. 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. So now we have 3 large canvas photos of us. 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.
