Your body goes though a truly remarkable transformation while you grow your little human inside you. The entire experience happens faster than you might think and capturing the peak of this transformation is something you and your family will cherish forever.

All maternity sessions are photographed on location by Jason wherever you’d like including but not limited to a private residences or a public urban / rural area or your choice. Common areas for our sessions are the downtown Sonoma square for an urban feel and the Sonoma valley regional park for a more rural look.

The best time to do a maternity photo shoot is somewhere around the 7 – 8 1/2 month mark of your pregnancy with the compromise of your belly size being balanced against your energy level. Some women have greater tolerance for doing their photo shoot later while others have very limited energy the closer they get to their due date.

It is best to reach out to Jason at least 3 months before your due date to make sure he can fit you into his schedule.

Weddings can be photographed anywhere in the world but are most commonly documented in the San Francisco bay area since we are based out of Sonoma, California. Weddings can typically be broken down in to four segments consisting of:

  • Getting ready
  • Ceremony
  • Formals
  • Reception

If you are looking for an elopement photographer for your Sonoma or Napa wedding, most couples choose to cut coverage down to include only the ceremony and formal documentation.

Engagement sessions, pre-wedding portraits and bridal boudoir are all great ways experience what it’s like to be photographed by Jason without the added pressure of the wedding day. Doing these photo shoots before your wedding not only allows for more time to capture these portraits, but it can also help give you more time with your guests.
