About the experience

• Adriana

She was so patient with our two little ones. She was able to capture some incredible shots of them smiling. We cancelled our first appointment while she was half ways to the photoshoot location, as it wasn't quite the weather we wanted. She was so understanding about it. 100% recommend!

• Chi

Being as nervous and awkward as I am when getting my pictures taken, Anastasia really knows how to make the photo sessions comfortable, professional, and personable. Definitely one of the nicest people you will have the pleasure of meeting and working with. Highly recommended!

• How many images will I receive?

You will receive digital images based on a package of your choosing. They will be fully edited. Your are able to upgrade by purchasing single images or upgrading to a larger gallery after the session. Pricing dependent on number of photos. Please inquire for details.

• What is your turnaround time?

Portrait sessions are complete within 3 weeks or sooner. Longer sessions, elopements and weddings 8 weeks or sooner.

• Dressing everyone stresses me out! Do you help with styling?

Absolutely! I have a client closet with some gorgeous items for Women and some for kids. I am also more than happy to help you find something to purchase or rent. Wardrobe isn't everything, but it can add or detract from the session.

• Do you have HMUA or other vendor recommendations?

Yes, I have a list of recommended local vendors, just let me know what you are looking for!

• What time of day do you schedule your sessions?

I generally shoot during golden hour, which is an hour or so before sunset. I do offer sunrise sessions in certain locations. Some locations (redwoods, darker areas) will require different timing. I do shoot at all times of day when it comes to adventures, elopements and weddings. Most newborn session are shot mid day, or whenever lighting is best in your house.

• What happens if it's raining? What is your reschedule or cancellation policy?

Simply put, I am here to give you the best images in the best possible conditions based on your vision. This means I am flexible when it comes to rescheduling due to weather. This area tends to be foggy, which is actually quite amazing in photos. However, I know some of my clients prefer sun filled images and I am happy to work together to try to make that happen. As far as cancellation, the retainer you pay to secure the session is non-refundable, but I am happy to apply it to a future session in case of any unexpected events or emergencies.

• Do you offer mini sessions?

I try to offer mini session once a year as my schedule allows. Please follow me on social media to see future offerings. If you'd like to get on my model call list please fill out the contact form

• Do you offer military or any other discounts?

I offer a returning client discount and run promotions for referrals. I try to have several price points to be able to provide my services to as many people as possible.
