christmas fall family photos in shaver lake california

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.

Shaver Lake Mini Sessions: A 2018 Recap

Dutton Ranch Inspired is literally the way I would describe this engagement session with Joseph & Rachel! As much as I love shooting at my usual locations and creating unique photos for our clients, it’s especially fun when we get to explore private ranches and spaces for a session. It offers a level of uniqueness […]
