There is nothing that feels less like work, than taking pictures of your best friend and her family. Had so much fun with my BFF, DD and her crazy crew!
Hung out with my friend Maggie and her sweet family, a few weeks ago in San Francisco. It's always fun to start a session with great conversation and a glass of wine. Hope to see you again soon, friend.

About a week before her session, Maggie emailed me that she happened to have an extra ticket for The Color Factory on the EXACT day of her session. Tix were super hard to get, and have been sold out for a long time. So of course I was like, ARE YOU KIDDING YES YES YES.
We opened up a few more spots for the August 19th Sweetheart Photo Sessions. So if you're on the fence, now is your time to jump! Want more info? See below :)
What IS a Sweetheart photo shoot? It's a day that we all get together to drink champagne, play dress up, and take pretty pictures.
Where is it? At your home, or location of your choice.
How much is it? $495
What's included? Your session (2 outfit changes), 20-40 images delivered digitally within 2 weeks.
Do I have to do sexy pictures? Of course not! This is actually a great (FUN!) way to get some new head shots for work, Tinder, or your facebook profile!
What if I can't make the Aug 19th date? No problem, the next date is Sept 30th.
Want more info? See my last post for more details and what to expect! :)

There were too many great ones to put into just one post. Here are a few more from our second day shooting, and the last of these gorgeous humans.
Another beauty, Isabel, and sister to Raquel from the last post. :)
The first time I did Raquel's portraits, she was around 5 or 6 years old, and wearing Angel wings. It was also 2 studio locations ago, and when my business name was Relish. So I was super happy to find that her Mom, Annette was able to track me down after all this time. It was amazing to see the gorgeous woman she's grown into. And it was so much fun working with you guys, as usual. xo-Maile
I spent a day a with my good friend Cara, her boyfriend Dean, and their fun kids. Cara wanted lots of candids and storytelling images, so a Lifestyle session was perfect for them.
We started with the girls, getting a blow out together.
Walked around the Pearl...
Had lunch at La Gloria.
And then finished with a balloon fight in the front yard. Which was a great way to end a hot San Antonio summer day!
I've been doing these sessions for years. Initially, I think most people schedule for husbands or boyfriends, or partners. But there is something transformative that always happens along the way, that goes beyond hair or makeup or pretty pictures.
If you've never done a shoot like this, here's what you can expect:
1. You will feel selfish for considering it. And probably more selfish after you book.
2. As the date gets closer, you will want to cancel, because you will suddenly see every little roll and dimple on your body, as if they are the extent of you.
3. But you are in good hands, so you show up anyway.
4. On the day of your session, you will feel a little nervous, then beautiful and then relaxed. More importantly, you will remember (or perhaps meet for the first time) the side of you that is feminine and sensual and free... the side of you that belongs to you.
5. You will feel empowered in a new way, and proud of yourself for remembering that you are worth making time and space for. Plus, you will have some hottie pics to show off! Treat yourself to this amazing experience!
Sounds fun, right? It is, girl! Do you have questions? I bet. Here are some answers.
What's included: Everything! Your session session (2 outfit changes), 20-40 images delivered digitally within 2 weeks. Allow approximately one hour for everything.
What if I don't want to do sexy pictures?
You don't have to! We have lots of realtors, professionals, or people who just want a great facebook head shot. The experience is still the same!
What if I'm in another city or state?
We will come to you, but the minimum is 5. If you are hosting, your session is still FREE!
What if something comes up and I need/want to cancel?
We put a lot of work into planning these, so there are no refunds. You can however transfer it to someone else, and / or apply your payment to another session (even a family shoot). We also 100% guarantee your happiness. So if you don't love your photos, you'll receive a full refund.
Recommendations for the best experience:
Bring a friend or two. Regardless of environment, it's always a little nervy to have a camera pointing at you. Friends will help you make a little party out of it - make it fun.
Sexy can be less clothing, but it's not necessary either. Here are some wardrobe ideas:
- Men's shirt (white photographs best), and not too baggy.
- White sheet (we will have one!)
- Bra / Panties set or corset
- Tank or camisole with panties
- Vintage night gown
- Whatever you are comfortable in!
Still have more questions and/or want to schedule? Send me a note!
Can't wait to see you in a couple of weeks!
