Portraits by Stacey Doyle Photography

Documenting families has always been very near and dear to my heart.

Some families, I have photographed over the years, and they have become friends of mine.
Others are past wedding couples, who have grown their family from the two of them to more.

One thing you may notice, when looking at the different faces in my portfolios, is that there are a lot of repeat faces!

One thing I am most proud of are the clients that come back to me, time and time again.

Trusting me to capture their families, their friends, their fur babies, their loved ones.

I take great pride and am always humbled when clients come back, so that I can continue to capture their stories.


All-inclusive sessions begin at 595.

A Year In The Life and A Day In The Life sessions are also available through the studio.

Frequently Asked Questions

Tell me a bit more about a portrait session with you?

Coverage is typically 45 minutes to an hour, however I always go by the energy level of everyone involved.

Sometimes we can get what we need in 1/2 hour. Sometimes we need a bit more time to get what we need.

I know, especially with newborns and toddlers, there may need to be a photo-free moment or two in order to do a feeding, give a little one a snack, diaper-breaks, etc.

The coverage time is flexible enough so we can ensure that we capture what we need without being too stringent with time so everyone is as comfortable and happy as possible!

We'll hang out, I'll choreograph the portraits, however, for the most part, I'm documenting as you are being with one another.

Families like to have their sessions in and around their own homes, at their vacation homes, favorite local parks and beaches.

I offer sessions in the Sacramento and surroundings areas as well as The Bay and Napa Valley area of California.
I also travel to New England multiple times a year, and schedule sessions with clients in that area.

Where do you recommend we have our session?

In terms of locations, I happily photograph families anywhere!
A lot of my families/couples choose places that have meaning to them.

That could be your local park that you love to stroll around in, a favorite restaurant or local coffee spot, even your own home (a lot of my family sessions happen here).

Or we can think outside of the box and find a location which you've always wanted to visit/experience and use that as backdrop!

All sessions include a password protected online retail gallery, where you can view all the images in your collection, share with family & friends and anyone can place an order right from the site.

The Family Sessions

I offer two sessions: one includes the hi-resolution files and a studio credit good towards professional prints and other items available from the studio through my professional photo lab; the other option includes the hi-resolution files only.

The First Option is an all inclusive shoot that includes creating photographs on-location at your favorite spots (multiple locations included within similar travel distances), an online retail gallery, your full collection of unaltered hi-resolution files, a handful (typically up to 20) of favorite files will be fully retouched, & a 250$ studio credit good towards prints/cards/albums for 1095.

The Second Option includes taking photographs on-location at your favorite spots (multi locations included within similar travel distances), an online retail gallery & your full collection of unaltered hi-resolution files (great to make your own prints, albums, cards, etc), and a handful of favorites files retouched (typically up to 10) for 895

I also offer a Mini Session which includes 30 minutes of shoot time, one local (Sacramento area) location, and one hi-resolution retouched file for 595. (with the option to purchase additional retouched hi-res files and/or your full collection of unaltered hi-res files)

A Year in the Life newborn coverage option (3mo, 6mo, 9mo, and year) - 1600.

Includes coverage every 3 months for the 1st year (we can tweak that timing depending on schedules, etc - does not have to be exact), the hi-resolution files from each shoot, and a custom-designed Baby's First Year 10x10 album, including images from each of the sessions.

A Day in the Life is a session where I accompany you and your family through a typical day.
I will be there to observe through my lens, not choreograph or set up any images.

From breakfast to playtime to nap time to bath-time, I'll be there to capture it all!

You will receive a password-protected online retail gallery to view and download your files.
Each A Day In the Life also receives a photo book with a curated collection of images from your day.
