East Bay Family Photography

Fun and active family photo sessions in the San Francisco East Bay Area.

What makes my family photography sessions different?

The experience! Get ready to move, laugh, and enjoy yourselves! No awkward standing around with forced grins on my watch! As your family photographer, my mission is to capture your true personalities and connection through a fun and active session.

Forget about standing around and staring at the camera hoping for that one decent shot with everybody’s eyes open. Your family is one of a kind — let’s make photos that are just as unique!

In the end, you’ll have a collection of the best moments from our time together to use and enjoy for years to come.

I’ll help you find the perfect way to display your treasured photos from our session.

Do you have a special use for your photos in mind?

Perhaps there’s a wall in your home crying out for a fun display? Want a table-top or wall-ready photo to gift loved ones? Sending out a holiday, anniversary, or other special occasion card? I’m here to help!

In your complimentary “Try It On!” consultation, I’ll be able to show you your favorite images right on the walls of your home (virutally), and will provide you with recommendations of great ways to display your favorite family photos in your home.

You’ll also be able to purchase a custom designed photo album (a brilliant option when you have limited wall space) and digital files (printable up to 8″ x 10″) from your session. See more details on my Rates page.

Do you have a special LOCATION in mind for your photos?

Just let me know! For locations beyond our Emeryville / Berkeley / Albany / El Cerrito / Richmond area, a travel fee may apply. I will let you know what that would be for your desired location and date.

Special event photography may also require an additional fee. I’m happy to provide a quote on request–just include your specifications in your session booking request.
