AND ABOUT ME.

 I OFFER MY SERVICES IN THE SAN DIEGO AREA and in La Mesa - East County San Diego. Please see below what I offer:

 

NEWBORN ONLY SESSIONS.

Where will the session take place? I have a small dedicated area in my home that is cozy and warm for your newborn It is sanitized per covid standards. 

.. The best time to photograph your baby is in the first 10 days. This can be scheduled ahead of time or just after you and your baby are home from the hospital.  

Once you book your newborn session I will send you a PDF of instructions to go over prior to your photography session that covers what to bring etc. I have a number of set ups for babies as well as wraps and outfits. Your baby will be in good hands. 

PREGNANCY.

The best time to photograph you is about one month before your due date.  There are numerous locations in San Diego including the beach, parks and INDOOR SESSIONS ALSO. If you chose an outdoor session; I only photograph one or two hours before sunset as this is best time for the perfect light. In studio it doesn't matter what time of day as I use studio lights and strobes. 

MOTHER AND CHILD. 

These are a wonderful opportunity to show Mother and baby... It is one of my favorite sessions. I take these in my studio most of the time. I can do on location per special request, weather permitting. I like to keep baby warm.

FAIRY FINE-ART /. MERMAID and FINE ART PIECES.

IN MY Fine-art category you can choose to have a custom made fairy session!!!  These are very popular; I provide wings and costumes for girls from 4 years up to adult.     I hand paint using digital paint and brushes. This kind of art piece is one of a kind that can take me many hours depending on the number of subjects and content.   Should you chose this option we can discuss artistic ideas of the creation.   There is a custom charge for this service and my images start at $400.00 for the time and talent involved.. Each piece is unique and printed on the finest of print papers or canvass. Those who purchase such art pieces do get a discount on other packages if they choose to.

MERMAID FINEART PIECES : 

These images are created in my studio. Time of photographing 1 to 1.5 hours. I will replace background and add underwater elements in the compositing process.. As above pricing starts at $400.00 for the time and skill involved in the creation of this one of a kind piece.  They are very popular for family sessions as well as individual portraits. 

 

I also specialize in compositing images; what does that mean? That means I have a number of different Digital Backgrounds that can be used to place your baby AFTER THE PHOTO SESSION AND ON MY COMPUTER. The themes vary; if you are interested look at the fine art section of the gallery. 

OUTDOOR FAMILY SESSIONS/MATERNITY SESSIONS. - FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS.

What should we wear?

Ideally, it’s best to wear something that is comfortable and makes you feel good. Stay away from clothing with logos or loud colors. And of course watch out for outfits that might clash. Rather than match perfectly, think of having everyone wear something that goes together in a natural yet not overly obvious way. I’ve found that typically solid neutral colors work best for parents and kids can wear colors, preferably not too bright as the color can distract from the image.  Bring a change of outfits as well for some variety.. or in case someone gets wet!

What locations work best?

San Diego is full of amazing locations. There is so much natural beauty and so many beaches, piers, walkways, buildings and parks. You almost can’t go wrong; when selecting a location try to find a spot that isn’t cluttered and means something to your family. If you always go to a specific beach, that might be the perfect place to start. We can do parks, or urban area..    We will plan our session together. I will guide you all the way; you will have nothing to worry about. And we will have fun!  2 hours before sunset are ideal for family sessions. 

How can we sign up?  You may use the "Book Me" option on my website and it also serves to contact me and pay for the services that you choose. 
It typically works best to come up with a few scheduling options that work for your family. 

What if I have more questions?
I’d be glad to help. Feel free to reach me directly:
