Session fee: $975 for a single portrait session (including a $600 print and product credit) and $1,800 for three “Grow with Me” portrait sessions (including a $900 print and product credit). Angela is based in the East Bay and will travel to locations in San Francisco and Marin for an additional travel fee. She also offers in-studio sessions.
Fave location: Good light is Angela’s greatest inspiration and her priority when it comes to choosing a location. She likes to shoot in places with a variety of different backgrounds and also considers logistics, like access to parking, walkability and stroller-friendliness of a given location. Safety and comfort is key!
Helpful hints: Angela recommends scheduling photo shoots based on little ones’ “happiest time of day” and asks parents to bring along their child’s favorite toy or blanket to ease any fears or insecurities. Having previously worked for many years as a photojournalist, Angela strives to tell the family’s story through her photographs. To that end, she makes it a practice to briefly interview parents in advance about themselves and their children so she has a better sense for who they are and what makes them tick.
