There is a 50 Retainer due at booking. This reserves your session date and time, or due date in the case of newborn sessions. Retainers are non-refundable and are applied to your session price.

Each Session comes with a private viewing gallery with the best images from the session completely retouched. 

Studio sessions are done in my home studio located in Fairfield, CA. Outdoor locations are discussed prior to booking. Some locations do require reservations and/or a fee for use, parking and/or entrance. Clients are responsible for the additional fees should they choose a location that requires one.
