Mustard Flower Mini Session in Walnut Creek | A magical hilltop photo experience

What is a Mustard Flower Mini Session?

These photo sessions are a shorter, less expensive photo session with fewer deliverables than a full photo session, that take place back-to-back with another photo session. They typically take place in February and March, depending on when the flowers bloom. They take place in a field of the beloved yellow mustard flowers that bloom here in the East Bay just before Spring.

Where do Mustard Flower Mini Sessions take place?

Mustard Flower Mini Sessions will take place in the East Bay in the area of Clayton/ Concord/Walnut Creek/ Lafayette/ Martinez. (CA). I spend lots of time scouting out the best fields of blooms. I have quite a few go-to spots that I keep an eye on all throughout the season, and am always keeping an eye out for new ones! I'll contact you during the week before your session to give you the address of the best location for your date.

What should we wear?

Wardrobe is an important aspect of your Walnut Creek Mustard Flower Mini Session. I have found that "Spring" colors look lovely for these sessions. I love a soft pink, any shade of purple, a mustard yellow, paired with neutrals such as tan, cream, and light brown. I also love navy blue for these sessions! The styles I like best are modern boho or elevated casual. When you book your session, you'll receive a detailed style guide along with an interactive online styling tool from me to help you plan your outfits!

Who are these Walnut Creek Mustard Flower Mini Sessions best for?

These sessions are great for families, children, high school seniors, pregnant mamas, and mommy and me sessions! They are perfect for those who are ok with a shorter session duration and can move at a quicker pace than my full sessions. They are not appropriate for extended families or for children who need a lot more time to warm up. Please reach out if you are interested in booking a full session in the mustard flowers.

What can I expect at my session?

I will prompt you into a variety of poses. My sessions include a lot of family interaction prompts to obtain natural smiles and connection from families, mamas, and babies. High school seniors will also receive prompts to achieve natural smiles and movement. I like families to have fun and enjoy their time at sessions with me, and you'll receive a Welcome Guide with tips on how to prepare and have fun!

When will I receive my photos?

You will receive your password-protected online photo gallery within 3 weeks after your session. From there, you can pick your favorites, buy additional photos, and order prints!
