Thank you so much for a wonderful 2014! I am currently on maternity leave and will be posting several sessions to share during this little break from shooting. I am excited for 2015 and all the families that I get to meet and see again. Below is all the new information to get you started for booking this year. If you have any questions please feel free to email me at Sessions do book fast and I will only be returning to work part time for the 2015 year.

2015 Photography Price List and Details
I will be returning to work from maternity leave on March 1st, 2015 but will begin booking sessions as of January 1st for the 2015 year. The prices will remain the same as listed under Details. However, there will be a few changes/reminders to the contract that are stated below.

All sessions are not booked until payment or deposit is received. Mini Sessions are due in full and Lifestyle, Maternity and Newborn sessions a 50% deposit is due at booking. Once the client receives the contract, payment must be received within one week or the session will open up to the next client. Payment will be accepted via Papal or personal checks/cash mailed to address provided on contract. Contracts go out biweekly.

Mini sessions are offered during the Spring, Summer and Fall. Two dates will be available during the Spring and Summer and eight dates will be offered during the Fall. Each date will have 2 slots (sometimes three). Once those slots fill up, I will only be booking Lifestyle, Maternity, and Newborn Sessions with the remaining dates I have available. Just a reminder that the photographer picks the location for the mini sessions. This is done so I can plan to have multiple families back to back and I have a good estimate on the lighting. These are usually locations that I have used in the past so I know the conditions well. These sessions are designed for one family unit. Each additional member outside immediate family will be an additional $25 and more time may be needed. This includes grandparents, aunt, uncles, friends, etc.

Unless the disc is purchased the session will come up with a gallery of images up to a 5×7 print size. The gallery will be open for one month. Each additional disc is $20 once the additional disc is purchased for $100. The cost of the disc is due at booking.

Pop Up Sessions are the only sessions where payment will be accepted on session day. I plan to have at least five pop up sessions during the Spring and Summer. There will be no pop up sessions in the Fall. Pop Up Sessions do not include newborns as these sessions are outside in sometime cooler conditions.

Spring Mini Session dates and locations are set. Summer will be announced in the Spring. Fall will be announced in the summer. Those who book their sessions first get to pick date and location. Reminder session is not booked unless paid in full.

All sales/deposits are final. If a session is canceled the client will have the opportunity to reschedule their session for another date.

New Year Promotion
The first ten customers who book their sessions before March 1st will receive the disc for no additional fee! ($100 value)
If you aren’t one of the first ten customers to book, you will still receive the disc for $50 if you book prior to June 1st! After June 1st the disc is $100.

The Mini Session dates for the Spring will be March 15th in North County and April 19th in San Luis Obispo. Locations and exact times to be announced. If you wish to book a Lifestyle, Maternity, Engagement or Newborn Session please email me the dates of your preference.
