Sweet Jaelyn entered the world just a few days ago and she’s already growing so much.  This is what I love about photographing from birth, it allows me to document and visually share the growth process and how much she’s changed in such little time.  Big sister, Jules is still adjusting and that’s perfectly normal but she was very concerned every time her baby sister cried or fussed.  They will be best friends in no time at all.  I’m glad to share that mom and dad are doing fantastic and I wanted to share a few of my favorite moments from Jaelyn’s Newborn Session here…




Meet Cole. This kid, he has that twinkle in his eye, and he is always getting into something! He is at that super fun age because little ones have this “whoaaaaaa….it’s a bigggg world” look when you put them in a new place. We met up at a local regional park and enjoyed the beautiful weather on an early spring day.  Enjoy some of my favorite moments from his session below……..



2018 PCP Senior Model Crew Application


Being a part of the PCP Senior Model Crew isn’t just about “pretty pictures” even though it’s a major perk…It’s about empowering young women…building amazing bonds and friendships and having one heck of a time doing it!! Thank you SO much for your interest in being a part of the 2018 PCP Senior Model Crew! Below is all the info you need to decide whether or not being a part of the crew is for you.

So….. What the HECK does being part of the 2018 PCP Senior Model Crew mean?

Basically, It’s an ELITE group of high school senior girls chosen to represent P. Chevalley Photography.

YOU will be the FACE of PCP Seniors.

YOU will participate in a fully stylized group shoot with professional makeup and hair provided.

You will gain a sisterhood of girlfriends you would have otherwise never met (pretty much the coolest perk of the whole thing)

As a model, you will automatically be featured on my website, blog AND social media.

What do Senior Models have to do? What are the requirements? 

There will be 2-3 STYLED group photography sessions that each model is expected to attend. 

Senior Models are required to have their senior portraits taken by P. Chevalley Photography.  PCP Models will NOT have senior portraits taken by any other photographer. (The exception is the required school Cap and Gown– of course you can have those done and it’s not something I offer)

Senior Models are NOT to model for any other photographer, boutique or business during their senior year.

Senior Models MUST have parental consent. I value my senior parents and love to get the parents involved. They are welcome to come and experience each shoot and get together that we have.

What type of Senior am I looking for?

I am looking for girls who are comfortable in their own skin…

Fashion forward in clothing choices and comfortable in front of camera….

Young women with KIND hearts, FREE spirits and BEAUTIFUL souls…..

VERY active on social media (this is a MUST) Must have IG account and FB account…

Must be involved in extracurricular activities…..

**Senior Models are a reflection of my business. I will NOT tolerate bullying on social media, inappropriate images of nudity, suggestive posing or alcohol/drugs.**

Here’s the skinny on the investment….

Senior Models are required to pay the regular senior session fee of $400.

Since you were already planning on having PCP take your senior portraits, there is NO additional cost to be a Senior Model.

Essentially, YOU are getting 2-3 EXTRA photography sessions for the price of ONE senior session. Talk about an amazing perk, right?

Professional Makeup WILL BE provided for the “large” group stylized session and will be provided for EACH model’s personal senior session. 

Each Senior will receive digital images and a print release from each session.

What schools are eligible?

If your school is within a 2 hour driving distance to Brentwood, CA you are eligible. BUT you must be willing to drive to the shoots and get togethers (as they will be close to Brentwood, CA or other East Bay locations).

Will I accept everybody that applies?

No, There are limited spots available. 

I highly encourage you to be descriptive and show the “REAL YOU” in your application answers. The more in depth and personal you are…the better! I really want to KNOW you

You will be notified by email on APRIL 15, 2017. 

If you are not accepted, you will receive a discount that will count towards your session with PCP.

Once I’m accepted as a Senior Model……Then what?

Once accepted, you will be sent an electronic contract that will need to be signed by you and your legal guardian.

I will follow up and verify with your legal guardian via phone and address any questions.

Your senior session will need to be paid in full by May 1, 2017. If you need to make separate payments this is acceptable as long as session is paid in full by June 15, 2017.  This will secure your spot as a Senior Model.

Our first stylized group session will take place during July 2017.

These girls are not just “models”….They become a family. In our online group and through text, there is always constant communication, prayers being lifted up for each other in good times and hard times and pictures being shared. This is so much more than just a “model crew” even though that’s what it’s officially called……..


I am over the moon excited to read your application! Be in touch soon!


Most people don’t know how important adoption is to me.  It’s not because I’m adopted, but because my husband is.  My husband was adopted at two days old by my mother and father-in-law.  Adoption takes a special type of mother and father to be, you are stronger and you love that much deeper.  I was honored to take what are referred to as a “red string” session for Sarah, her husband and their newest addition Isabella.  Isabella was seven weeks old during our time together and she was the most wide awake baby I’ve dealt with that wasn’t walking already.  I was glad to hear that after our two hour session that she let her parents rest a bit by taking a nice four hour nap.  I’m so thankful that Scott’s allowed me into their home to photograph this amazing time in their lives and I wish them nothing but love and blessings for the future and that one day they know someone will be very thankful that Isabella chose them as her parents.




Meet Rawan & Fadi, a beautiful couple that became engaged this past October.  I was introduced to Rawan by her future sister-in-law who is an events planner in the Bay Area (Platinum Events).  Rawan asked me to photograph the couples upcoming engagement party where their union would be blessed by the church and celebrations would be a many, how could I say no?  We planned to do a small engagement session before their party and we thought the rain would put us out of commission but Rawan put on her rain boots and we got to work! I will have photos of the couples party coming up because it was beautifully done but for now, just enjoy all this Bay Area love.
