If you'd like to book a session, reach out via my contact form on this site. I will send you my photo session guide with information about my packages and how to book. 

1. Say Hello

Once we connect, we will choose a date for your photo session. Most of my sessions take place during golden hour, the hour before sunset. Once you're on my calendar you can choose a location for your photo session from my extensive list of favorite locations for photos in both San Diego and Orange County (and beyond!)

2. Schedule it

Once we have the date and location down, its time for the fun stuff! Planning! I am here with you every step of the way for planning and knowing what to expect. Every client will receive my detailed session and style guide to help you feel prepared walking into your photo session. I work closely with each of my clients to ensure every detail is perfect! 

3. Planning it

Take a deep breath, I'm here for you! Don't worry about not knowing how to pose. As your photographer it's my job to pose you in both comfortable and flattering ways. We will do a mix of both posed and candid photos, adventuring around in our location. 

4. Your Session

After your session is finished, it's time for the fun part! Your edited images will be delivered within 7 days through an online gallery. You have printing and sharing rights included in your session, so share your beloved photos everywhere! I am happy to assist you in choosing and ordering prints of your treasured photos.

The Investment Details

"Mattie completely exceeded our expectations when it came to our family photos. She made the entire process so easy and was extremely accommodating. With her strong eye for detail and natural talent, she was able to capture photos of our family that we truly cherish. She optimized our images by directing and posing our family in a way that felt natural and comfortable. The final product left us with a variety of photos that were special in their own way. It is evident that she knows what she is doing!"

Morgan

"Mattie is an incredible photographer.  She was so good with our kids and we got way more shots of them smiling than in any of the other photo shoots we had done with other photographers. Another thing that Mattie is really talented at are poses. She had us try different poses that were really flattering for all members of our family. If you are looking for a photographer who is great with kids, easy to work with and incredibly talented when it comes to technical expertise, then look no further than Mattie. Best family pictures and photography experience we have ever had!"
