fall mini sessions

 I am so excited to see all my families, catch up and photograph moments that you can cherish forever. I promise to make your mini-session smooth and fun! I have a laid back style and love playing with the kiddos to get some unposed moments in between the portrait shots. I'm here to work with your vision and whether you have researched the perfect 3 poses on Pinterest or you want a more relaxed session- we can make it work! This year I'll be offering 3 customized packages with the option of adding any of my a-la-carte digitals or print, frame or canvas choices. I'll be shooting at several locations around Ventura county, check the sign up sheet to see if your favorite spot is available!  If there is a desired location you do not see listed (within 20 miles), please contact me and we can make it work! I'm always looking for new places to photograph- new parks, orchards, beaches!
