Hi! Thanks so much for checking out Emerald Gate Studios! I am a professional photographer and videographer in the East Bay area of the San Francisco Bay Area in northern California. I have been a Video-Tographer for 8 years and have LOVED having a camera in my hands, since I was a little girl. I even had my own production company when I was 7 recruiting my brother and my neighbors! I am a Special Effects Movie Lover, a wife of one INCREDIBLY loving and supportive wife, and a mom to 2 month old girl and boy twins. My studio is located in Castro Valley California. I try to be as friendly and as genuine as I possibly can, welcoming you into my studio like it was my home. It is my sincere hope that you leave my studio feeling as if you have just made a friend for life, if we're not already friends. :) We want you to be comfortable when you put your life's most precious and important moments in my hands, to photograph.
Your investment can start at $150 for the sitting fee, depending upon the type of session you are wanting. For example, a maternity session fee is $150, while a newborn session fee is $300. When you combine more than one session, you will receive those sessions at a special rate. For example, if you decide to book a maternity and newborn session, the price is $400 for both sessions. **Please note, any printed products or digital images can be purchased separately,& are not included in the session fee.**
MATERNITY SESSION - $150This time of life is such an incredibly special time of life, that doesn't happen too often. You are growing a precious, sweet miracle inside of you. What better way to document that, than with gorgeous maternity photos? I have quite a few beautiful, luxurious gowns that you may select from for your session.
NEWBORN SESSION in STUDIO - $300These popular sessions are fun! You get to select the colors you want us to use for these photos. Match your nursery, or match your personality, but have fun with it. These are the perfect images to showcase in your home.
6 MONTH SITTER SESSION - $150This is the time in baby's life, when they start sitting up on their own, and they really start developing a personality. These sessions are full of imagination, curiosity, and sweetness.
1ST BIRTHDAY PORTRAIT SESSION - $150Yay! Baby has made it to one! Whether you want these photos FOR their 1st birthday party, or as a special keepsake of this important milestone in their lives, we can create the 1st Birthday Portraits of your dreams.
1ST BIRTHDAY CAKE SMASH SESSION - $150Go for the good stuff! I love watching babies' reactions to their cakes. Some are sad, some are happy, some are confused. And then some of them DIG IN! We can do whatever theme you are wanting, and decorate as much or as little as you want. Make this a special time for your little one, as they turn a year old.
FAMILY PORTRAIT SESSION - $175*It's always so important for families to be photographed together. We may not always get along with each other, but we DO love each other fiercely, and we never know how long we have with one another. Cherish that time, and leave a legacy of love and wonderful memories with a family portrait session.Show your children how important they are and how loved they are, by displaying your family photos in your home for generations to come.*Session fee varies with location. For example, a beach session at Baker Beach San Francisco would be more than a session in the Castro Valley/Dublin/Pleasanton area.
