family sessions

Full sessions with Julia typically yield 65-95 photos. Full sessions with an associate typically yield 50-75 images. 

Right now, associate sessions only take place in the Tri-Valley. A trusted and experienced associate will photograph your family session and the images will be edited in-house to give you the timeless and light style. Pre-shoot communication and prep happen with both Julia and your photographer.

Mini sessions are only offered 2-3 times a year; typically in the spring and fall. They are offered first to past clients. Any leftover sessions are then offered to the general public via Instagram and Facebook.
