Photography Rates, Info & FAQs
I accept cash, checks and Venmo.
I ask my clients for a 50% deposit in advance to reserve the session time; the remaining fee is due on the day of the shoot.
A $75 travel fee applies for every 30 minutes of travel required beyond San Francisco.

How long do the photo sessions last, and when will I get to see my photos?
Where do you your photo shoots usually take place? Do you bring lights?
I will bring one light and a reflector, but it will be best to shoot in the room(s) that are brightest at that time of day. I don’t travel with backdrops.
Natural light tends to be the most flattering, so we will choose a space together that offers the best light to accentuate your natural beauty.
What should I do to prepare for my session?
How far will you travel for photo shoots?
Do you have any special advice for pregnant women?
How would you work with someone who is concerned that she's not very photogenic?
When did you first start photographing professionally?
When in my pregnancy do you recommend I schedule my photoshoot?
I can’t afford your fees, but still want to get photos taken. Do you offer a sliding scale or other options?
- I offer one sliding scale, discounted photoshoot per month because I believe that every mamma deserves stunning images of her amazing body. Please send me an email with your proposed budget and if the space is available, I will see if I can accommodate you. All discounted photoshoots are given with the agreement/ caveat that I will be able to use your photos for promotional purposes, after you have seen the photos and have given me explicit approval of the images I would like to use. These shoots are only available for the basic package.
- I am always working on personal projects for which I need models. If you are not able to afford a photoshoot, please send me a request to be considered for a personal project and I will see if there’s a project that I’m working on that I could use you for. I will then reply and ask you to send me a few current photos from your phone to see if you might be the model I am looking for. There’s no guarantee, but its worth a try!
To purchase a gift certificate contact me for electronic payment options or mail me a check for the full cost of the session. Then go to the contact form and send me the name and contact info of the person for whom you have purchased the session. Once I have received your payment, I will email the gift certificate directly to the recipient, unless you prefer that I send it straight to you. No service will be provided until payment is received.
48 notice for cancellation of your photoshoot is required otherwise full payment is due.The only exception besides illness is giving birth, in which case, I request that you email me upon the onset of labor to cancel and that you reschedule your prenatal shoot for a postpartum one.
It is suggested that pregnant women have a small snack before their session.
Our time together starts at the set appintoment time, therefore if you are running late, that time will count towards the total time of our session and may mean we are not able to get as many images as originally promised.
