Styling for a photo shoot is very important.  As a general rule, I always say to coordinate your outfits with simular tones but do not match.  Try and find patterns and textures that compliment each other.  Pick outfits that best bring out your family’s personality.   I will consult with you about the look and feel you want for your shoot.  Every family is different and this is what makes each photo shoot unique.  I want to hear your ideas and desires so I can better taylor your shoot and I can create it through my vision.  Once I have an idea of what you want to do I can suggest outfits and locations that would be best for the photo shoot.  However, whatever you bring make sure it is clean and ironed.  If your clothes are wrinkled and stained this will show up in the photos.  Meaningful props can be fun to add too.  

How long will the shoot last?

I want to be able to take my time with each family so I know that we will have fun and get the photos we want.  On average Holiday Special photo shoot will last 45 minutes, arrive 10 minutes earlier to leave enough time walk to session location and get "camera ready".

What is the best location?

This is a personal decision for each family.  I will suggest beaches, parks or other locations that I like depending on the look and feel you want for your photo shoot.  

What is the best time to do a photo shoot?

This will depend on the location that we choose to do the shoot.  If we are shooting on the beach, it is best to get the early morning light or a hour or so before sunset.  A park setting will have  a bigger window of time.  If you have other family members that will be joining you for the shoot, it is important to keep in mind your child’s nap and eating schedule.

For family or portrait beach photography we would meet about 1.5 hours prior to sunset, to leave ample time to get setup, walk to the beach and have a memorable session. Some of my locations are best at low tide, where the reef gets exposed, however some locations are great at high tide, to get waves in the background. I will find you the perfect spot, and if you already have a special place just let me know. There are many beautiful locations in all of our beaches: Oceanside, Carlsbad, La Costa, Leucadia, Encinitas, Solana Beach, Cardiff by the Sea, Del Mar, Torrey Pines State Beach, Black's Beach, La Jolla Shores, Bird Rock, Pacific Beach, Mission Beach, Ocean Beach, Point Loma, Cabrillo State Park, Silver Strand Beach, Coronado Beach, Imperial Beach. All of them.

After the Session:

Within two weeks of the photo session, you will be sent a link for a password protected online gallery with at least 50-100 images per session, so you can choose the best images, which I will then edit and release to you. You can also purchase all high resolution images from the session for additional fee. From the online gallery you can share these photos with your friends and family, or buy prints, canvas, mounted prints, metal prints of images, with various sizes. Images are developed by specialized lab, color corrected for optimal printing to deliver exceptional quality products.
