My family sessions prices are separated in to a session retainer, which covers the cost of executing the photography session, and a digital/print minimum order of $269 or more. Please find the Client Corner at the bottom of the page, for a link to our digital/print prices.
My family sessions book up fairly quickly for the Fall season. I recommend scheduling your session at least 6-8 weeks in advance. On occassion we are able to accomodate last minute requests.
Lead photographer & owner, Jess, is responsible for narrowing down and editing the best set of images that reflect our unique creative perspective. Generally family sessions will yeild a gallery of 30-50 images.
We offer family sessions in the Inland Empire, Hi Desert, Western Arizona, and San Diego. On occassion we offer sessions in Austin & Houston.
Any of our photographers will give you the quality of skill and professional equipment that you see reflected in our work. All editing is done by lead photograher, Jess.
We aim for a mix of images both candid and posed. However, we strive to let the session evolve organically while honoring our clients specific desires. We are able to accomodate your preference in this regard. However, we lean candidly.
Our session retainer covers parents and their immediate children. Additional persons are added on to the session fee at $25/adult.
We understand that everyone has a budget to work within. We are happy to setup automatic installment payments to divide your order into up to 3 installments.
Here's my rule of thumb: #1 - don't over think it. #2 - be comfortable. #3 - mix patterns, solids and a variety of colors.
If there is something that inspires you or you'd love captured, let's definitley chat about it during our shoot! We'd love those personal momentos to be a part of your session.
Life happens. I will hang out as long as feasible. Though often, sessions are at sunset and once
the sun is gone, that's that. A $50 reschedule fee may be assessed for reschedules.
We can definitely explore options to address this! We can shoot at sunrise for those early riser
munkings. Let's talk about how to best accomodate your littles. We want them happy!
Sneak peeks are guaranteed to be posted on social media within 7 business days of your session.

Your session's images will be completed and loaded to your gallery within 2-3 weeks of your session.
Your album design is presented as your first time seeing your images. From there, you're allowed 3 complimetary editing rounds. Once approved, your album is ordered.
Pease allow 4-6 weeks to receive your album once you've approved the final album design.
Please allow 2-3 weeks for wall art and prints to arrive. Custom framing delivery time frame varies by project, but on average runs 4-6 weeks.
Absolutely! I am happy to provide watermarked web resolution photos perfect for
