Frequently Asked Questions

Where are you located?

I'm based in San Elijo Hills, San Marcos, California.  I serve North San Diego County including Carlsbad, San Marcos, Encinitas, Cardiff-by-the-Sea, Del Mar, Vista, Escondido, Valley Center, Oceanside, Poway, Rancho Bernardo, Penasquitos and all of San Diego County for weddings and special events.

What if I don't see the date or time that I need?

Contact me to chat about availability.   A little bit of schedule juggling may open up the date and time you need.  I can also put you on a waitlist in case a spot opens up.

Do you offer morning sessions?

For sure!  They work best for me on non-school days.  I love morning sessions, especially beach sunrise sessions!  These times don't show on the app to cut down on confusion, but contact Christy to set up a morning session.

Do you offer Sunday sessions?

No, sessions are only offered Monday through Saturday.

What if I need to reschedule or cancel?

If you need to change our session date, please let me know within 48 hours of scheduling.  The sooner the better!  After the initial 48 hours, there will be a $250 rescheduling fee.In case of inclement weather (rain, wind advisory, fires), I'll suggest we reschedule at no extra charge.If a session is cancelled within 2 weeks of the session date, the retainer fee/deposit will be charged to the credit card on file.

Is retouch included?

I can usually retouch the simple stuff - acne, a stray hair or two, or an owie or bruise.  More advanced and time intensive retouch that I'm able to do will be limited to a few of your favorites.  Anything more extensive, I will contract out and there will be additional fees.  You can read more about retouch options and services here.

How do I get coupon codes?

Sign up for the newsletter for the latest coupon codes!   Coupon codes are not valid for weddings and events.

Can I pick a location outside the North San Diego county area?

Check with me about options for the date you need. There is an option to upgrade your location when scheduling but I need to make sure it will work with our date and time and my family's schedule. Locations within 20 miles from 92078 are included at no extra cost.

How many photos to I get?

A lot!  It depends on your session length and the amount of poses we're able to capture.  I generally give you all the photos (basic edit included) that I would want to hang on the wall if it were my family!  Mini sessions can be between 50 to 150 or more.

What's the difference between family and extended family sessions?

Once kids start getting married and having littles, I'll change you over from a family session to an extended family session.  My extended family sessions are priced the same as smaller family sessions but larger groups usually require more organization and time management on my end. I may make a schedule and stagger the smaller families' arrival times.  More questions on the booking forms and more structure to the session the larger the group we have.  Love my big family groups!

How long until I get my photos?

Please allow 1-2 weeks for your photos, possibly longer the weeks of Thanksgiving and Christmas.  They are usually done much sooner but plan on 1 to 2 weeks to allow for plenty of time.

Still have questions?

Please contact me at any time to chat about any questions you may have!  I'm so excited about our session together and here for you every step of the way!
