FAQ’s

Every family has a colorful story. I'd love to tell yours. Introducing a boutique photography experience for the modern parent who wants to leave a vibrant legacy (and never says no to a snuggle).

Frequently Asked Questions

1. WHO ARE YOUR CLIENTS?

My clients appreciate great style and design, but they enjoy a good pair of PJs even more. They believe that snuggling is an expression of love, and that family photography is more than a perfect holiday card — it’s a gift for their children and future grandchildren. My clients are busy people, but they also believe in pressing the pause button and finding time to laugh together.

2. IS YOUR STYLE CANDID OR POSED?

My style is a marriage of posed and candid moments. I think it’s important to capture a few classic shots with everyone looking at the camera; I’m also inspired by the ‘in-between’ moments — the way mom looks at dad as he gives his daughter a piggyback ride, or the way your son giggles with mischievous delight as he toddles away from you.

3. WHERE DO YOU SHOOT?

Sessions typically take place either at your home or outdoors in and around the Sacramento surrounding areas. Bonus points if you can think of a location that’s meaningful to your family.

4. WHAT SHOULD WE WEAR?

I love helping my clients choose their outfits — it’s like piecing together a puzzle! Before your session, I’ll send you a guide that’s jam-packed with clothing tips and tricks. (Psst – you can get early access to the guide further down this page!) If you’re extra stumped, you’re welcome to send me photos of potential combos so that I can give you personalized guidance. In the meantime, please check out the following blog post on what to wear for family portraits.

5. WHAT HAPPENS IF WE GET RAINED OUT?

It never rains in California … until it does. I keep a number of backup dates open each month in case of bad weather. There’s no charge to reschedule to a new date if it’s raining or overcast.

6. HELP!!! I'M NOT PHOTOGENIC AT ALL!

Believe it or not, nearly EVERYONE tells me this before their session, and it never turns out to be true! I have a lot of tricks up my sleeve to help you look fabulous. When you’re having a great time, you’ll look more beautiful than you thought possible — I promise!

7. DO YOU OFFER DIGITAL FILES?

If you’re head-over-heels for your proofs, digital files are available for purchase.

8. HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE TO RECEIVE OUR IMAGES?

You’ll receive your proof gallery two weeks after your session date, and your finished digital files (if ordered) will be in your hands two weeks after that. (The total turnaround time for prints is up to one month.)
