Perhaps you've considered prominently displaying your favorite family portrait over your fireplace for everyone to admire and enjoy daily.

These are the moments you want to remember. Whatever your end goal, we're here to create artwork that will fit your vision and that you will fall in love with.

With cameras on smartphones improving every day, it’s easier than ever to capture beautiful moments of friends, family, pets, and milestones. Not only can they be of amazing quality, but they can also be convenient. So with this easy access to great cameras, why hire a professional photographer? What is the value?

Professional photographers have state-of-the-art equipment, know the best staging techniques, can edit your images, and most importantly, help make sure everyone is in the photo! Here are some moments in life when we might think a smartphone camera would do, but perhaps we should think again.

 

Selling Your Home

The right photos hold the key to a home that sells for the right priceand at the right time. Many home buyers are doing more of their house-hunting online these days, which means professionally taken photos and 360 tours could make all the difference. If you want to really turn heads, hire eyeCatchLight Photography to photograph your home and create a virtual tour.

We understand luxury real estate in the San Francisco Bay Area and beyond.

One of the vital pieces to the groundbreaking marketing strategy of realtors is our 360 Real Estate Virtual Tours. Most real estate clients don’t have the luxury of touring a home in person if they are moving from out of state, so it’s important to provide an interactive experience for the potential buyer that made them feel as if they were actually touring the house in person; something above and beyond Real Estate Photography.

We offer the 360 Virtual Tours for their homes in Mountain View, Los Altos, San Francisco, Palo Alto, Santa Cruz, San Jose, Menlo Park, Redwood City, San Bruno, San Carlos, Saratoga, Monte Sereno, Scotts Valley, Monterey, Pescadero, Sunnyvale, Santa Clara, Half Moon Bay, Pacifica, Los Gatos, South San Francisco, Campbell , Woodside, Capitola, Aptos, Soquel, and more.

The realtor even has the ability to record a guided video tour using the 360 Tour and can use the tool to virtually meet over video with interested parties.


 

Wedding
Your wedding day will fly by in a flash—many couples say they don’t even get time to eat. Having a professional there to document the moments, big and small, will help you experience your day in more depth. Things you missed, exchanges between friends, and a time when you looked your absolute best—these are all things you can remember for the rest of your life in high-quality detail thanks to a professional wedding photographer.

Before and After

Professionally-taken before and after photos can more adequately convey a major transformation, like surgery, weight loss, or a home remodel. Hiring a professional to track your health progress can be a big motivator for many people, which is why a medical photographer can be a good call—they really bring to light even the smallest details. When it comes to showcasing home improvements, professional real estate photos can engage sellers more deeply when you are ready to put your home on the market.

 

Professional Headshot

Whether you are a CEO or just starting out in your career, a professional headshot for LinkedIn, your personal website, and other online platforms is a very beneficial career boost. Putting your best, professional face forward is the first impression potential employers and clients get from you. This is especially helpful for people who want to advance in leadership roles or start consulting on their own. 

Our Headshot & Professional Branding Sessions can be created on location!

We have 10 years of experience in the field and give clients care and attention in our headshot experience to achieve their desired personal branding look with available make up and hair services, digital make up, posing, and more.

These are great for individual professionals and their unique rising entrepreneur marketing goals - be it book covers, press releases, or branding brochures!

As an artistic business, we also love to portray artists, writers, and musicians for their book covers, album covers, websites, and more! We love to see you thrive in the creative professions!

Professional headshots and group portraits for larger corporate projects where a clean, uniform look is desired over a larger team membership are one of our signature skills. Seeing your website, billboard, advertisements, magazine editorials, and more, with these icons of your successful business truly makes us happy!

 

Pregnancy and New Baby

Documenting one of the most unique times in your life—your pregnancy and the birth of a new baby—can help you relive some of the precious, once-in-a-lifetime memories. Choosing a professional to take these photos will give you confidence that the images will be done right. In several years’ time, your children will appreciate how high-quality professional images last so much longer. They can share this special moment with their children and even grandchildren.

 

        
 

 

Family

There will be many reasons to celebrate your family over the years and plenty of opportunities to document special times and moments. That’s why family photos of everyday life can also be really special, too. Professional images of you and your family going about your daily routine— who you are together in those everyday moments— show a side of familial love that can get eclipsed during boisterous and chaotic holidays. 

While there are times when a smartphone camera will do, as you can see there are plenty of good reasons to go with a pro. When the moments matter, make it count by hiring a professional to make memories last. You might even be surprised at how beautiful and authentic images can be when taken by an objective observer.

Wall art portrait of two year old boy with farm barn and meadow in PescaderoWall art portrait of two year old boy with farm barn and meadow in PescaderoToday I was fortunate to deliver little Trevor's wooden wall art children's portrait! We created it at Harley Farms in Pescadero, where he had a great time playing with his new friends the goats! This wooden wall art piece is part of this year's new collection and comes with an invisible mount in the back equipped with a built in level for easy mounting. All of my wall art comes with a certificate of authenticity! I'm so happy Trevor will have heirloom memories to look back on when he grows up - these are made to last and hopefully create joy for the family for years to come.
