Tis the season to begin the time-honored tradition of the family photoshoot! I love to create a nice portrait of the whole crazy bunch along with some action-packed shots to really capture your more typical interactions. Sessions are fun, active, and usually involve promises of ice cream for good behavior.



Thanks everyone for a great year. See my list below for other photographers offering family sessions this season.



About these shoots
Park days are good for capturing the perfect holiday card photo and a few extras too! Kids can usually stay focused for the duration, and I love to run around with them.

About these shoots
Have a big group, personalized shoot ideas, or a favorite location in mind? These longer shoots result in a TON of awesome photos and are always truly unique. My favorite is to shoot in your home, no matter the space! We can also mix home and neighborhood, or shoot at a cool East Bay spot.

When & where
These shoots are held at the location of your choosing! I am happy to consult on options. Shoots outside the immediate East Bay may result in a small travel fee.

  • Sunday September 23rd, 10am
  • Sunday Oct 21, 4pm
  • Friday October 26, 5pm
  • Sunday November 18, 1pm
  • Sunday November 18, 3pm

What you get
40+ high-resolution images, lightly edited.
8 images of your choosing for extra retouching.
