HOW DO I SELECT THE BEST PACKAGE FOR MY FAMILY?
 
The Lifestyle Package: This package is great if you have more than 2 kids,  you have kids that need more time, newborn baby, you have more than 1 dog that you’d like to include
 
 
The Portrait Package: This package is perfect for updated family photos, and for greeting cards! This year I will capture a few family portraits, and typically we can get in kids together and separately. If there is extra time you let me know what you’d like me to capture.
 
 
HOW MUCH ARE YOU REALLY ABLE TO CAPTURE IN THIS AMOUNT OF TIME?
 
Very good question that I often get asked and it does differ based on each photographer. I do many mini sessions (most are 30 min) almost every day in Hawaii (where I am based) so I am very used to capturing a lot of photos (even with little ones) in a short amount of time. The lifestyle package usually includes 20+ photos and Portrait package usually includes 10+ images (most families receive more than 10). If your family does a really good job cooperating we will capture even more photos than the average minimum. 
 
 
ARE THERE ANY REFUNDS IF WE CHANGE OUR MIND RIGHT AFTER WE BOOK?
 
Mini sessions are due in full at the time of booking. ALL SALES ARE FINAL. You may sell or gift your session to another family if you cannot make your photo session. Please email me at marissa.hbphoto@gmail.com to let me know if you decide to cancel and also if someone else will take your place.
 
 
CAN I CHANGE THE DATE & OR TIME OF OUR MINI SESSION AFTER I BOOK?
It might be possible if there is availability. If there is no availability and you cannot make your photo session, you may sell or gift your session to another family. Please email me at marissa.hbphoto@gmail.com to let me know if you decide to cancel and/or if someone else will take your place. I will need them to fill out a client agreement as well.
 
 
CAN WE DO EXTENDED FAMILY PHOTOS, GRADUATION, OR COUPLES PHOTOS?
Yes! I have experience photographing, families, couples, graduating seniors, newborn babies (outdoors), etc.
 
 
WHAT IF WE ARE LATE FOR OUR SESSION?
Mini session start and end times are strict due to photo sessions being scheduled back-to-back. You will receive directions & info on how to prep before your photoshoot takes place. If you are going to be late, or if you are lost, please text or call Marissa at 415-343-2377.
 
 
WHAT IS THE PROTOCOL IF IT RAINS OR IF THERE IS WILDFIRE SMOKE THE DAY OF THE SHOOT?
 
Rain: If it is set to rain on the date of your photo session, Marissa will contact you to reschedule. Typically, if the forecast says it will be raining the entire week and the chance of rain is high, it is likely that it will rain and Marissa will reschedule.
 
Wildfires: If there is an unhealthy level of smoke due to wildfires Marissa will be in touch to reschedule. Some families may choose to continue with their photo session, which may be possible if there are enough families that would like to move forward due to not being able to reschedule to another date.

What They’re Saying!

  • “Marissa has photographed our family several times. We never take photos as a whole family in our day to day life, so we invest in this annually to have some nice pictures of all of us together – and let me tell you, they are just beautiful! We have two young kids that are not very cooperative, but I am always amazed at how she manages to get such great photos. On top of that, she is so sweet and calm throughout the process, and the kids feel instantly at ease (which gives you a shot at a decent photo!).”
  • “I am so happy I got to work with Marissa!… Her suggestions and attention to little details to achieve a beautiful shoot is impeccable. She is also a mother to a toddler so she understands how to work with them which is also a bonus. Her editing is perfect, I got comments where some of the photos should belong in a magazine and I agree!”
