So, what are 'Personal Branding' photos anyway?

ON PERSONAL BRANDING: Whether it's for your business website, your personal blog, or a dating site profile, we all need authentic, flattering, professional photos of ourselves that weren't shot on our bestie's iPhone. My personal branding sessions focus on creating images that reflect your best self and, for creative professionals and entrepreneurs, showcase what you have to offer the world. I know it can be intimidating to be in front of the camera, so I take the awkwardness out of having your photos taken by guiding and directing you throughout our session. Basically, you don't have to worry about what to do with your hands - I've got it covered!

My personal branding sessions cover everything from gorgeous portraits to stock photography tailored specifically to your business needs. Packages range from $375 for a basic headshot session to $1200 for a combination of professional portraits of you (and your employees!) and customized stock photography with license to use the photos however you see fit (website, social media, print marketing - seriously, however you want!). Let's show the world your brilliance, professionalism, creativity, and general awesomeness through fabulous, flattering, and authentic images of you and your work!

ON BOUDOIR: I know what you're thinking... "I need to lose 10 pounds first." "I'm not photogenic." "I don't know how to pose." "I'll feel like an idiot." "Wait, what's 'boudoir' again?" I know you're thinking these things because I've had exactly the same thoughts. But you know what? It's not your job to be good in front of the camera, it's MY job to guide you, direct you, and pose you in the most flattering light possible to bring out your best, sexiest, fiercest self. You can do it for your partner if you want (they do tend to like my photos!), but I say, do it for YOU first and foremost! Take some time to love and treat yourself. You deserve to have the most beautiful, flattering photos of yourself possible and I know without a doubt I can give them to you.

Our session will be fun and laid back, with your comfort as my top priority.

Love & Marriage: Elopements, Engagements, Anniversaries, & Just Because

ON COUPLES SESSIONS: Engagements, anniversaries, and of course, elopements are the most common 'reasons' people book a couples session but "just because we're in love" is a perfectly good reason, too! We start out by choosing 1 or 2 locations that are meaningful to you -the place where you first met, had your first date, your favorite hiking spot, or the neighborhood where you made your first home together are a few good starters- then explore the area with guidance and direction from me to help you relax & enjoy each other. I like to tell my couples to think of our session as a few hours to just BE... be present, be in love, and be together. And you just happen to have a personal photographer around to help you remember all that lovey goodness!

1. WHERE ARE YOU LOCATED? I'm based in San Francisco but will happily travel just about anywhere for great photos.

2. HOW LONG WILL WE HAVE TO WAIT FOR OUR PHOTOS? The average session is about 2-3 weeks for all photos to be fully edited, uploaded, and delivered but I try to get them to you sooner if I can.

3. HOW WILL OUR PHOTOS BE DELIVERED? Your photos will be delivered via an online gallery where you'll be able to download the files directly to your computer, share your photos with friends and family, and order prints from one of the top printing labs in the country. You can also rest easy knowing your cherished memories are safely stored in the cloud for years to come.

4. WHERE WILL MY SESSION TAKE PLACE? Depending on the type of session, it will either take place at an outdoor location of your choice, your home, or a private studio space in San Francisco. 

5. OK, I DEFINITELY WANT TO TREAT MYSELF TO A SESSION! WHAT'S NEXT? Awesome! All we need is a signed contract and a retainer of 50% of your session fee to hold the date. The remaining balance is due one week before your session.

6. WHAT TYPES OF PAYMENT DO YOU ACCEPT? I'm a little old-fashioned and prefer checks, but we accept credit cards, too, if that's easiest for you.

Most days, you can find me chugging coffee like it's going out of style and exploring a new part of the city with the Little Guy (unless it's naptime, in which case I'll be working, diving into a new book, or catching up on Netflix!). I am mostly known for remaining calm under pressure but patience is a constant work in progress. I love serving the world by being a bad-a** mama-jama, raising a respectful human, and magnifying your light within through my photos. As a photographer, I've been featured both in print and online, including Style Me Pretty, The Today Show, Modern Jewish Weddings Magazine, & Health Monitor Magazine but my greatest professional joy comes from capturing YOUR authentic self and sharing it with the world.
