The journey starts with a complimentary consultation at my beautiful studio in downtown San Diego where we will meet for a coffee and begin the process by learning more about your vision, your style, and taste and we will discuss the perfect location for your dream shoot. You are welcome to browse through my studio wardrobe, see and touch my beautiful fine art products. There is no obligation to book a session with me. If you feel, I'm the perfect fit, we will schedule your portrait session. I also have a couple of weekend sessions available. The session fee will be due at the time of booking.

Photo Session

Prior to your session, you will receive a list of how to prepare and what to bring to your session date. On the day of your photo session, you will receive professional hair and makeup. We will consult hair and makeup based on your type and how you would like to see yourself. After your makeover we will start with your photo session, they typically last between 1.5-2.5 hours. I worked hard to command the craft of posing and lighting in a way that leads you to relax and enjoy the full experience while creating beautiful portraits that captures your personality and memories you will treasure for the rest of your life.

Sales Session

You will be invited back to my photo studio approximately 1-2 weeks after your portrait session to view your images and make your selection. You will see and hold your 25 signature retouched fine art images for the first time. Be prepared to be overwhelmed with emotions – joy, and tears when you see your images for the first time. Products are sold separately with images starting at $150 and packages starting at $1,200. With every print purchased, I will provide the complementary matching digital file. What you purchase and ultimately spend is entirely up to you. You only purchase the images you love.
