Portraits and Beyond

What to Expect 

We wholeheartedly believe family photos should be a priority, for more than your annual Christmas card. They are stories that will be passed on for generations.  Allowing us to capture your family in this moment, as you are, is one of the greatest gifts you can give. 

You can ensure Photography by DeeDee will help plan your perfect session starting with location. Once your session is booked we also help with a complete wardrobe guide and more! Whether you are vacationing with extended family in Pismo Beach, California, or immediate family. We ensure that we capture every combination, keeping the experience stress-free and fun!


"I absolutely love all the pictures DeeDee has taken of our family over the years. We have preserved these perfect 'moments in time' that we can treasure for the rest of our lives. Our family looks forward to seeing her and we are so grateful our paths crossed years ago."

My Step-By-Step Process

1. Consultation 

Start by contacting us directly by filling out the form on our website here. We will discuss your needs and ensure we are a great fit.

3. Day-of your Session

By the time your session arrives, we have fully prepped you and the studio for your arrival. Now you can sit back, relax, and enjoy the experience we have created.

2. Contract and Deposit

Once a date has been agreed upon you will be sent a contract and invoice for your session fee. These must both be completed within 48 hours to secure your date. 

4. Gallery Delivery

Two weeks after your session you will receive a private online gallery where you can view, download digital images, and purchase prints.


With over a decade of experience and various collection options, together we will select a collection that works for you. Please ask about payment plans. Every session requires a $200 retainer at the time of booking. The session fee is non-refundable but it may be transferred once to a future session date before being forfeited.
