(I REALLY HOPE THAT'S ME)
It would be embarrassing if you thought of someone else...
Do you ever imagine yourself a few years
from now and have the certainty that
you will miss your current life?
There's actually a word for it: ANTICIPATORY NOSTALGIA
You feel a sense of nostalgia for something that is currently happening (or not even!), and while breast/bottle-feeding your baby, putting on the
band-aids, planning all the playdates/parties/travels, there might come a day when you won't be
needed as much (hello teen years!).
The Yearbook Club is an annual subscription to ensure your family photos (and not-so-curated moments) are cared for every year. You will get visual proof it actually happened and that you were there.
(without the creeping Fear of Missing Out).

PETITE PHOTO SESSION
EXTRA PHOTO SESSION
You can add a casual headshot session at the end of your photo or film session. This will add 20 min to your family session to devote to sprucing up your current business portrait. I will give you ~10 images to choose from within a proofing gallery, and you select the 3 images you would like professionally bedazzled. Natural lighting will be utilized with a natural environment as the background (no backdrops). Pricing is per individual, and needs to be scheduled through me.
One-off Petite Sessions are exclusive for members only. They are 45 min. photo-only sessions, and you receive ~20 images. They are perfect for a Maternity Session, holiday cards, or welcoming a new pet, and are available on weekend mornings, except Oct-Dec. Please note that they are subject to availability and need to be scheduled directly through me, rather than through the self-scheduling calendar. Advanced notice is highly recommended.
Add on a second full Family Photo Session for 2023! Whether it's to celebrate something special or maybe family is in town. Includes hi-res gallery to download. Must be used in 2023.
One-off Petite Sessions are exclusive for members only. They are 45 min. photo-only sessions, and you receive around 20 images.
They are perfect for holiday cards
or when the grandparents come to visit.
You can choose where you want
(within 25 miles from Alameda) and when you wish during the weekend mornings
More about the
I'm limiting the number of Yearbook Club memberships to keep my schedule manageable and to give members a great experience. In keeping the enrollment period short, I have a clear picture for the year of whether and how many additional one-off sessions I can accommodate.
The availability calendar will be posted three times within this Membership Year: on May 1 (for May 1- Aug 31 session dates), on Aug 1 (for Sept 1 - Nov 19 session dates), and on Dec 1 (for Jan 9 - Mar 31). I'll always remind you via email when those are posted.
The calendar will be self-scheduled by the members themselves on a first-come, first-served basis (so joining the membership will be particularly beneficial if you want first dibs on specific dates).
In future years, members will be asked whether they would like to renew or terminate their membership before the new enrollment period. There is no commitment beyond the year, and there will be no surprise renewals.
If you choose to renew but would like to change your subscription level (up or down), you are welcome to do so, though offerings and pricing may change from year to year.
Bay Area Family Photographer & Filmmaker
This is the place where it happens. Grab a date, and you’re in the books! (We can adjust timing a bit, too.) I’ll confirm your spot with an email, and we will plan location details or can do that closer to your session date.
If you can schedule during a weekday (10a-2p), I have tons of availability not on this calendar. Sunset sessions can also be available in the East Bay during the week. Reach out if you’ve got a preferred day and time in mind.
You’ll need to schedule at least two weeks out for photo sessions and six weeks for film/video sessions.
Reminder: I’ll update the fall/winter dates on Aug 1 (for Sept-Nov 19) and winter/spring 2024 dates on Dec 1 (for Jan 9-Mar 31).
