Welcome to Your Complementary Photo Session
Please read the information carefully below all the way to the end.
It’s nice to meet you and Congratulations!
It is an exciting and precious time!
But first, let me introduce myself…
First of all, I can’t wait to photograph you and your family!
I was born and raised in Hungary and moved to the states about 19 years ago to pursue new opportunities. I’ve always been artistic, and I fell in love with photography in 2007. Today I’m honored to say, I’m a multiple award-winning self-taught photographer. I first gained recognition in 2013 when my work was exhibited in an international art exhibit in New York. In 2018 and 2019 I was honored to win Best of San Jose Family Photographer, Bay Area - Peninsula Family Photographer, and have been featured as one of 14 amazing photographers in the San Francisco - Bay Area. However, I hope nothing more than my work to speak to people to make them feel a deep emotional connection. I'm obsessed with capturing families and newborns in a way that is artistic, real, romantic, full of life and I absolutely fall in love with every single family who trusts me to capture them.
Your Session Experience
My goal is to take the stress out of your photography session for you. My sessions are fun, laid back, and meaningful. Most families say they are surprised by how much fun they have when we meet to take their images. My clients quickly become dear friends, and they will all tell you how I pour everything into my sessions, making them enjoyable and fun! My style is laid back and minimalistic, focusing on your unique family connection.
For family and maternity sessions, we meet at one of the incredible Bay Area locations, our gorgeous cities have to offer; however, some families choose to have their sessions in the home. For newborn sessions, we meet in the comfort of your home.
My goal is for your newborn session to be relaxed; I call it "baby-led-session". We'll go nice and slow and attending to your baby's needs if there are any throughout the photoshoot. These newborn sessions are scheduled up to two hours which gives us plenty of time. My goal is for the newborn session to feel like a Sunday morning.
What kind of photographer are you?
My work has been described as organic, natural, and sentimental with a fine art quality. I combine traditional and documentary newborn photography along with family portraiture to capture authentic images for you to treasure for a lifetime. Imagine your family as fine art. As your photographer, I will provide a generous gallery of images that can be displayed in your home as pieces of art or archived in a custom album to be treasured for generations. These photographs will be an investment in your family history. Images from your session often tell a story, capturing a treasured moment in time. I do not try to make you look perfect, stiff, or unnatural. I am not after that "one" shot with everyone looking at the camera and smiling. Sure, we may get some with everyone looking and smiling, but I promise if we do, it will be because it happened naturally, not because it was forced.
Where will my session be held?
I am an on-location photographer. Together we will choose the perfect location for your session maternity or family session. Your newborn session will take place in the comfort of your home.
How far out are you booked?
I typically book one to three months in advance. If you are interested in newborn portraits, please inquire while you are pregnant. Already delivered? No problem. I try to leave openings in my schedule for last minute newborn sessions.
When do newborn session occur?
I typically schedule these photoshoots anywhere between 1 week old to a month and a half old. Both has their pros. The younger your baby is we can capture how teeny-tiny they are. You can expect your baby to sleep through the session. When it comes to babies who are a two weeks and older, you can expect them to be more alert and we can capture sweet moments your baby looking right at you.

Fresh 48-AKA Birth Space Session
Birth is an amazing thing, and precious moments are fleeting. A birth space newborn session allows those raw memories to be savored forever. Your session will take place in your birth space (hospital, home, birth center). These sessions are entirely documentary in nature. I come in and capture you connecting with your new baby. This session is only for the immediate family. I keep my schedule open around your due date and will visit your space within the first 48 hours of life or before you are discharged from the hospital. The sessions usually last 30 minutes to 1 hour. These sessions are stress-free and relaxed. No prepping necessary.
