There’s still time to book your 2019 fall mini session! I got tons of requests for beach sessions last year, so I added some sessions over in Pismo Beach this November.
Click HERE to see the dates still available!

If the mini session dates don’t work, I still have a very limited amount of dates available for a full family session. Contact me to book ASAP.

I just adore all the families that I got to meet and capture for these fun, fall family photos. Shaver Lake is such a gorgeous place! And the Shaver Lake Mini Sessions are one of my most popular locations. I think because this place is somewhere many families from Fresno have visited and made memories, coming here for family photos just makes sense.
