PRICING & INFO

Before you realize it the gap toothed smiles are gone, their silliness has matured and they are asking you for the car keys! Capture your unique family as works of art to cherish for a lifetime.

Sessions

Choose the session type that best fits you. Playdate is best for the family. Joy cube is great for the little humans, offered seasonally. Tween sessions make your pre-teen feel special. We never charge a mileage fee and there is no per subject fee as long as everyone is from the same household.

Locations

Locations for your session can range form your home to the beach, a hike in the woods or a funky urban landscape. Some of my favorites are Baker Beach, Jack London Square,Lake Merritt, Tilden Park, Heather Farms Park or Old Borges Ranch.

We take the time to learn what is special about your family. And we make sure you are thrilled with the results of your session with our industry leading 110% money-back guarantee.

Enjoy

Relax and enjoy your session. I will provide you with tips on how to make it successful, but in general you relax and watch and let me work with your kids. Don’t worry about them not wanting to cooperate, I get silly, I bring props, I engage the kids in play and we have fun.
