• Session Pricing •


*Se Habla Español*

Please make sure you take the time to read all pricing and policy information prior to booking your session.


Upon booking your appointment you will receive an email with an invoice attached. You will have to pay a $60 non-refundable deposit which is due within 48hrs of receiving your invoice. This deposit is required in order to secure your appointment. Remaining session fees are due by the invoice expiration date. If you are interested in discounts please check my (Current Specials) tab.


Session Fees include my time, talent and editing time only and DOES NOT include prints or digital files. Please go to the Investment tab to see current Product Pricing. Fees also include travel time anywhere from Santa Ynez, CA to San Luis Obispo, CA. So please keep on the look out for areas that you could be interested in for your photos.


Following your session I will personally select the best (15-20) images from your session and edit them. You will then receive a link to your own personal online gallery in order to purchase prints or digital files. This link can be shared with anyone who you believe may like to purchase images or digitals from your session. I will NOT provide the password to your online gallery to anyone besides the person who scheduled the appointment. It is up to the client to share due to client privacy.


(Family,Children,Engagement and Maternity portraits) $175

Session fee is currently $175. These sessions typically last about 1-1.5 hrs on site. Maternity sessions are best around 27-32 weeks max if this is second child. If this is your first baby I would schedule around 32-35 weeks. Please keep that in mind when you are booking your session.


(Seniors) $175

Session fee is currently $175. These sessions typically last about 1-1.5 hrs on site. This session includes multiple outfit changes and possibly multiple locations if time allows. Although you can bring an unlimited amount of outfit changes, 3-4 outfits is usually enough to have a variety of images. You do not want to spend most of your time changing between outfits. Make up and Hair options will be recommended by myself via email, although you are allowed to go where you would like. Having my senior girls make up and hair done helps with straight out of camera perfection. 


(Newborn portraits) $225

Session fee is currently $225. These sessions typically last about 2.5-3 hours in studio. Newborn sessions are for infants less than a month old and are BEST within the first 12 days after birth. These sessions are currently done at my studio in order to have full access to all my newborn props and needs. If you book a newborn session prior to your baby being born, please select a day (Wed, Thurs or Fri) about one week (5-7 days) from your due date. Date is entered tentatively and can be moved if needed. It is very important you contact me once your baby is born.


(1 yr/Cake Smash) $150

Session fee is currently $150. These sessions typically last about 1-1.5 hours in studio or outdoors. If you are interested in obtaining a photo for your child's actual Birthday Party please let me know. Session would have to be done at least 2 weeks prior to the actual event in order to receive print timely. I will provide 1 web-size digital image from the session at no additional cost for custom invitations.


(3, 6 or 9 months) $150

Session fee is currently $150. These sessions typically last about 1-1.5 hours in studio or outdoors.


When should I expect my images?

Approximately 30 days after your session (ex: Session was on 4/1 expect your gallery of images on 5/1) you will receive an email with instructions on how to access your personal password protected online gallery to view and share with family and friends. Gallery will be viewable for up to 1 month. If you do not purchase any photos by the time the gallery expires, a gallery re-activation fee of $25 will be charged. Once payment for the re-activation fee is received you will have an additional month to make your print/digital purchase. All print orders should be made prior to your gallery expiration date in order to avoid paying additional fees. If you have placed an order previously and your gallery has expired, I will reactivate your gallery at no additional cost.


*Please be advised that all packages and pricing is subject to change without notice. Sessions booked prior to session fee changes will be honored as well as any discounts given when session was booked.

Session Fees include the following:

  • my time and talent
  • custom editing of the best (15-20) images available from your session
  • personal password protected online gallery for you to view and make your print purchases
  • Session fees DO NOT include prints or digital images. A copy of your edited digital images may be sold separately which will allow you to print the pictures where ever you would like, although I can not guarantee quality , color or images being cropped appropriately for printing. I will always recommend clients and anyone else who has portraits done to purchase through their photographer when ever possible.
