My goal is always to shoot the kind of portrait that lets you see
how beautiful you truly are…
A quality portrait session is not merely about what you’re wearing and where you’re standing, or even how good your photographer is at wielding a camera.
It is the photographer’s job to create an experience of ease, appreciation, humor, and trust, so that you feel safe enough to let your unique, beautiful spark shine through.
This, to me, is the difference between a picture and a portrait.
In addition to being a photographer, I am also a psychotherapist, and I love to use my skills to help my subjects feel free enough to let their spirit and natural beauty come forward.
I have been working as a professional portrait photographer for 18 years. While I love the intensity of weddings and have shot more than 500 in my career, portraits allow me to slow down and really get to know the people I
I photograph families, children, senior portraits, couples, pets, maternity, newborn, and corporate portraits, as well as headshots for therapists, healers, and other professionals. You can view my headshot portfolio here. I also find it aboslutely thrilling to document birth and you can view those photos here.

Portrait sessions are one-hour at your location of choice in Sebastopol and include an online, password-protected gallery of all your images, from which you will choose your five favorites. I will retouch these for exposure, color, and cropping and deliver them to you via email as both high-resolution, print-ready files and web-optimized files.
Additional images beyond the five included are available at a fee of $75 per image, $150 for three, or $299 for the entire collection.
I often hold sessions at Ragle Ranch Park or The Barlow in Sebastopol.
Payment can be made with cash, check, Paypal, or Square. Additional fee for locations outside Sebastopol. Detailed facial or background retouching available for an additional fee.
