Limited Mini Sessions for 2020 Grads

I’m excited to announce that I will resume shooting on a limited basis while also adhering to social distancing guidelines.  It’s been a long hard six weeks for all of us and while I’ve been very strict about not shooting during quarantine, the state of CA has updated its list of approved outdoor activities as of yesterday, and outdoor photography is listed.  I’m taking that as an “okay” for a few mini sessions so my 2020 Grads can get their senior pics or cap & gown shots (or both).  Now more than ever we are reminded how important and impactful these memories are.  **California also mentions that we should be sure to keep at least a six feet distance between ourselves and people who are not in our household**

I never usually offer mini sessions for grads or seniors, so this is a very exclusive offer and NOT for 2021 Seniors

To book a session, click HERE.  You’ll see three options on that page: 

NEW clients, CURRENT clients and PROM clients. 

If you have not booked with me before, you’re a NEW client, so click that option and it’ll prompt you to choose a date and time – then pay for the session.  

If you are a CURRENT client and have an included mini session in the session you purchased, click that link and you will be prompted to schedule the session without paying for it.  If you aren’t sure if you have a session included, email me.

If you booked a PROM session with me and we couldn’t shoot it, you are welcome to use it for another type of mini session (grad, family, individual session – or wear your prom dress!).  Click that option and you’ll be prompted to reserve without paying.

Once you reserve a session, you will receive a confirmation email with info on location and what to expect regarding social distancing rules.  You will also be required to fill out a covid questionnaire before attending.  Please understand that the state site mentions “Californians can walk, run, hike and bike in their local neighborhoods as long as they continue to practice social distancing of 6 feet. This means avoiding crowded trails & parking lots” and therefore we need to be conscious of the amount of people while we are shooting.  No one outside of your immediate family is allowed to attend.  I will also make sure we do not book too many sessions back to back to avoid an overflow of clients.  Additional details will be sent to you via email prior to the session.

If you're into moody portraits, 90's nostalgia, great wine, Taylor Swift, memes I find funny + probably way too many videos of my cats? You've come to the right place.
