San Francisco Bay Area Fall Mini Sessions

bay-area-family-mini-session.html

We all know the fall season is not here. Yet, every year once fall hits the holiday season sneaks up and right before you know it, it's time to send those holiday cards. Then, you realize you don't have a pretty photo for your holiday card because it's simply too late. Perhaps, though, this is the year you stay ahead of the game, yes?!  

Now, why mini sessions? Because they are quick, easy, simple + half the cost of a regular session. These are perfect for family photos, or for couples alone (engaged, married or simply in love). Mini session are for anyone, really. 

All mini sessions include...

  • 20 Minute Session*
  • 20 High Resolution Edited Images
  • Private Online Gallery
  • Digital Download

*Limited to one (1) family per session. Five (5) people max/family.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Q: How long will it take to receive my digital photos?
A: About 3-4 days after your session you'll receive an online gallery with about 30-40 images to choose your 20 images from. Once you select your 20 photos, they'll be emailed to you within 24hours after finalizing your selection.

Q: What if none of these dates work for me?
A: If none of the listed mini sessions dates work with your schedule, it's best to schedule a private session. Private sessions are 1 hour long, include 40+ digital images, your location of choice and an online download of your images. For details on private sessions, simply email Rosa at hello@rosadelgado.com  

Q: What should I wear during my session?
A: 

  • First and foremost, do wear whatever makes you feel comfortable and good (including your child).
  • Don't be matchy matchy (otherwise, it can look like you're wearing uniforms).
  • Do color coordinate your outfits by picking 2-3 colors to work with.
  • Do wear solid colors that compliment each other or choose different shades. 
  • Do wear solid, neutral or earthtone colors. In my opinion, these colors work best in photos - white, ivory, blue (soft or jean-color), soft or deep brown, mustard yellow, deep green or red, and gray.
  • Layers are your best friend.
  • Avoid wearing neon/bright colors (orange, lime green or bright pinks and yellow).
  • Now, if you are like me and love wearing all black, simply add a pop of color or an accessory to your outfit to give it some contrast.
  • Patterns work well too, but keep them to a minimum. Unless, you're a pattern master.
  • Remember, these are professional photos so please avoid wearing anything with logos or words.
  • Do wear shoes that you and your little ones are comfortable walking around in as we will be moving around.
  • Last but not least, if you book your session + need help with outfits, I'll help!

Q: How should I prep for my mini session?
A: If you have little children, make sure they are well fed BEFORE your scheduled session. There is nothing more sad than a hungry baby. Also, please to bring a snack, candy or an extra baby bottle to your session. 

Q: What if it rains?
A: Should it rain, sessions will be moved to a different/backup location.

Q: Are these mini sessions only available for families?
A: Absolutely not! Mini sessions are for everyone! 

Any other questions before booking? Please email or call me! Otherwise, hope to meet you in one of these mini sessions.

 

Family Mini Session in Half Moon Bay

rosa delgado

One can never go wrong with a family photo session in Half Moon Bay or any beach along the California coast. As I gear up for this year's fall mini sessions I also thought it would be a good idea to share a few of my favorites from last year. 

First up is this gorgeous family of five. This was my second year photographing them. I love everything about them—they are sweet, laid back and overall kind hearted human beings. And, their outfits with he combination of blues, grays and white/ivory complimented the beach scene perfectly. Families, this is the perfect example of how to wear layers, too (take a look at the two littlest ones)!

During this session, the children ran around freely. Others, like the sweet baby girl below, simply stared away at the ocean waves. It was literally impossible for them to get bored. I tell all of my families that children are the bosses during a family session. So, if you want a successful session, pick a location that you know your child will enjoy. 

And, in case you are wondering, yes. I will be holding mini sessions in Half Moon Bay this year.

San Francisco City Hall Engagement Photos | Michael + Megan

rosa delgado

Michael + Megan travelled from Southern California for their engagement session in one of the most beautiful buildings in San Francisco. While I've photographed several weddings here, I've been wanting to photograph an engagement session in San Francisco City Hall.

I loved how their engagement session turned out. Michael + Megan were so easy to work with—they were patient, kind, fun and so, so sweet. I loved seeing them interact and their chemistry come to life, especially when I asked Michael to tell Megan she looked beautiful (she looked STUNNING). It was the sweetest thing to witness. And, I cannot wait for their wedding this summer. 

Michael + Megan, thank you so much for making the trip out here, for trusting me and for being such an easy pair of human beings to work with.
