At long last spring has arrived. While I took heed of winter's call to slow down, I love spring and am feeling its natural pull towards creating new things and growth. In that spirit, I’ve decided to offer 30-minute Motherhood Mini Sessions. For the past couple of months, I’ve been trying to think of the perfect location to offer spring mini sessions and have come to the realization that the place that is most special to you is the place I want to be taking photos. Rather than holding them one place—as I’ve done with mini sessions in the past—I’m holding open May 4 for SF and May 11 for the East Bay. You pick the time and the place that means something to you. It’s no secret that I have a soft spot for shooting in-home sessions, but I am open to outdoor spots that you feel connected to.

What are the Motherhood Mini Sessions?

They are a celebration of you in your indispensable role and a focused effort to get you in the frame loving up your family. Our kids are well documented, but our presence in those photos is another story. Consider this session a gift for you and your children—many of my favorite mementos from my childhood have always been photographs of my mom. Now that I’m a mother those photos have taken on an extra layer of meaning and I truly treasure them.

The Motherhood Mini Sessions are 30 minutes long. We will spend time documenting your life with those you love. Your only job is to be present with your family. I honor and find beauty in all that comes with motherhood—the tenderness, the exhaustion, the growth, the joy, the struggle—it’s all part of our story and what makes us mothers. I’ll bring the camera to capture whatever is up at that moment in time and together we will make memories to last a lifetime.

The fee for the Motherhood Mini Sessions is $295 and includes:

  • 30 minute personalized photography session at a location of your choice.

  • Session planning guide with tips to help you feel at ease the day of your session.

  • Styling and location assistance as requested.

  • 2 weeks after your session date you'll receive access to an online gallery with 30+ images from our time together.

  • 10 selects, chosen by you, are included in your session fee with the option to purchase additional images. You will be able to download both high-resolution and sharable files.

  • Full rights to make your own prints and to share your files with whomever you choose.

  • Direct access to a professional photo lab for 3 months after your selected images are delivered.

  • I am offering a limited number of these sessions. A $100 deposit secures your time. The balance of $195 is due the day of your session. Please note, the Motherhood Mini Sessions offer is valid only on May 4 in SF and May 11 in the East Bay.
