The Small Print

  • $25 minimum travel fee for sessions 30 miles+ away from the 92056 zip code
  • Cash, checks, and pay-pal accepted
  • All orders must be paid in full prior to processing and delivery.  
  • Due to the nature of the product no refunds will be given.
  • Due to limited storage space, digital files will only be stored for 3 months after the time of delivery. 
  • Most photography sessions take place outside in rural areas. You might get a little dirty! I suggest wearing comfortable clothes and shoes. Feel free to ask me for advice about what to wear. I'd love to talk it through with you! 
  • The files provided are high resolution, 300 dpi.
  • Rescheduling happens! Sick kids and weather are part of life. If you need to reschedule please let me know at least 72 hours in advance. Depending on my availability, your rescheduled session may be a couple of months out. The only time I will initiate a reschedule is if it is raining or if I am sick. Cloudy weather actually makes for great pictures, so don’t fret if it isn’t sunny outside! If you need to cancel, the deposit is non-refundable.
  • Let's talk about props! For the most part I try to keep props at a minimum and concentrate on making the photo more about the subject. However, there is a time and a place! I provide newborn props, photography maternity dresses, and a few props at family sessions (quilts, kid chairs, milk crates, etc). I do NOT provide the smash cake for birthday sessions, however I do have a vintage high chair.
