Let's plan a day, pick a location that is meaningful to you and create a slew of images that will fill up the frames on your walls for years to come. I serve San Luis Obispo, Pismo Beach and the surrounding areas. 

The first step in the process is to schedule your session. Complete the inquiry form and I will contact you to schedule a date and time. 

After you schedule your session, you'll be directed to pay a retainer of $50 to hold your spot. This retainer is non-refundable. The $50 will go towards the total amount of the session. 

This is the fun part!!! I'll confirm your session a week before to ensure everyone is ready. Your session will be approximately 60 minutes. The balance of your payment is due on the day of your session. 

You will receive a proof gallery with the best images from your session. You will pick your favorite 25 images. Your final online gallery will include high resolution images for you to download. All print orders can be placed directly from your gallery.

No one wants to look like a wet dog in their photos so if it looks like it's going to rain, snow, hail or some other weather catastrophe, we'll be in touch via email or phone to reschedule. Often, when we're scheduling our initial portrait session date, if it works for our calendars, we'll actually set up both a main date and a rain date just to make sure we don't have to postpone your session for very long if the weather is bad on the original date. 

The sooner the better! Our weekends tend to fill up pretty quickly - especially during the spring and fall, so the sooner you reach out to us, the more likely you are to get your desired date!  

To reserve your date, we'll need a contract as well as a deposit. And if something comes up and you need to change your date, just let us know! 

If picking out outfits for photos takes you back to your high school days when you literally tried on everything in your closet and piled it on your bed but still felt like you had nothing to wear, you're in luck. 

We put together an extensive outfit suggestion guide with tips for every member of the family (even Fido!)

Unless you've modeled professionally, you're probably going to feel awkward in front of the camera. Heck, we take photos for a living and we even feel like a deer in the headlights when we're in front of the camera. 

You're going to feel awkward at first, but as the session goes on and we coach you through images, we think you'll find that being photographed can actually be fun. And don't worry about your kids. We're well versed in capturing even the busiest of little ones. 

Within a few weeks of your session, you'll receive a link to a digital gallery that will allow you to download high resolution images. 

The gallery is also set up to make ordering prints, canvases and other keepsakes as easy as turning on a Roomba to clean your floors. No worrying about tricky things like color correction, DPI and image format.
