California and dogs!

Now that we have our friend, Sam with us all the time, we are always looking for dog friendly places to take him to play. We have found some great ones on our own and some with the great dog aps for mobile phones. Now I just found this list from a realtor in Santa Cruz~how great to post suggestions on his site! I would give him a call right away if I were looking for a home there, just because he includes the entire family. ;) Santa Cruz dog friendly

Busy busy!

Hi there! We've been having such a great time meeting tons of new families and playing in this great weather. Have you called or emailed yet to book your outdoor session? We have dates scheduled all over the area, don't wait until that Groupon is about to expire. ;)

More beautiful weather!

Hi there! Looks like we are keeping our gorgeous summery weather for a couple more weeks! I know I should be sad because we really need the rain, but I'm having so much fun playing on the beaches in the 70 degree weather and hiking in the sunshine! Here's a few shots from this last weekend, we ended up filming in the trees and meadows around Felton, California and what do you think of how some of these turned out? 

Thinking about grabbing that Groupon?

YAY! We can't wait to meet you.  I thought I'd write you a quick note just to help with some questions about the current Groupon (Jan 3-5, San Jose).  If you look around our Facebook and Website you will probably get a quick idea of what we are doing this year, but if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.  We will be monitoring the question board on Groupon once the deal goes 'live' so you can also ask that way.

How long is the shoot?
Our current Groupon will include up to 60 minutes of shooting time.  If you need more than that, we can arrange that in advance of your shoot and will need to know that for scheduling purposes.  ($50 for each additional hour).  But honestly, after about 30 minutes most people are ready to move on to whatever else they have planned for the day. 

Where would you like to shoot?
We can meet you at an outdoor location here in the SF Bay area.  (think beaches and parks) we would love to meet you and your family on a beach in Monterey, or at Crissy Field in San Francisco, or in Santa Cruz by the Boardwalk, etc.

What kind of photo shoot is this?
Yep, this is for an outdoor photo shoot.  We want to show beautiful landscapes and people out enjoying them.  For the most part, we will take family photos of you playing outside with the kids, kids just being kids, enjoying life, cartwheels on the beach, chasing the dog, flying kites, playing with Mom & Dad, climbing trees, you know, FUN! We can also do the stuffy posed shots, of course, at your request. ;)

When will I see my images?
I always tell people a week, but typically we will put a few sneak pics up on Facebook right away for you to see and share with your friends and family, etc. then you will get a link to images that are online, and you will receive the disc itself in about a week.  (we will ask for your addresses at the time of scheduling)
