2015 Holiday Mini session, East Bay San Francisco

They’re HERE!  I am finally ready to announce my most anticipated sessions of the year.  My Fall Holiday mini sessions often sell out quickly, so this year I’ve opened up more dates, including weekends because I adore my new and repeat clients who wait all year for this. These shorter sessions are perfect for busy families who are ready to update their family portraits or create stunning 2015 Holiday Cards.  Celebrate the beauty of the season with the convenience of my mini sessions!  You can book your Fall Holiday Mini Session online! It’s super easy and simple! I’ve even simplified ordering with online galleries because I know that the Holidays are just as crazy for you as they are for me!

Holiday Family Mini Sessions will be held  here in beautiful East Bay, ( Walnut Creek, Pleasant Hill, Concord, Danville )  San Francisco and I’m adding South Bay ( San Jose, Los Gatos, Palo Alto, Los Altos ) and  San Francisco locations this year, we have so much to choose from that there is surely something that fits your family style, Urban, woods, garden, fall leaves, etc!  Check out my location guide here and just pick your location and time! Holiday Mini sessions will be focused on photojournalistic ‘lifestyle’ portraits: portraits of your family interacting, candids, and kids playing in the leaves and some formal poses for Holiday Cards !

 

2015 Fall Holiday Mini Session  only $175
