Years ago Vitaliy and I took a break from photographing families in order to focus on growing the wedding side of our business. With our wedding business established and a couple of children added to our family (Rose 1.5 years old and another on the way in January!), our excitement for photographing families has returned. We’ve done a few sessions here and there but we’ve learned most people don’t know we offer portrait sessions so we thought it’d be fun to use the mini session concept as a way to relaunch the portrait side of our business.

As parents and photographers, we have a passion for documenting the growth of our family each year. In fact, we just framed and hung the photo from our Christmas card last year in our living room. I love looking at it every day! And we can’t wait to share this gift with YOU!

Session dates are Saturday, November 19 or Saturday, November 26 in San Francisco. Full session fee is required to book your slot and slots are available on a first come first serve basis. All bookings are non-refundable and space is limited! Packages include up to 4 people (each additional person is $25/person). Please find dates and package options below. Email sayhello@pictilio.com for any questions, to check availability and to book your session.

Please note: families start with a husband and wife so do not feel like you have to have kiddos to join in the fun. You all know how passionate we are about marriage and we would love to photograph your family whether it’s grown to include kids yet or not. Plus we all know that some of you have children of the furry nature that you may want to include! So all are invited and we hope to see you this month!

Happy Birthday Vitaliy!

Vitaliy and I just celebrated our 10 year wedding anniversary a few weeks ago. August is always a big month for us.

I didn’t blog about the anniversary because I was too busy enjoying it. My time feels so sacred to me these days. I definitely feel more eager to be present then ever before. I wanted to be away from my phone, my computer and my sweet Rose so I could be fully present with Vitaliy and celebrate this milestone of ours. It was an amazing time!

I still remember the first time I met Vitaliy. There are still core aspects of that boy I met in the school cafeteria. He’s still as thoughtful as those early days, always going out of his way to care for me. But there are elements of him, possibly there all along, that I’m only now discovering. Or perhaps, he’s only recently developed. Things like his need for change, his master-chef skills, and his inability to do two things at once.

He is the most interesting person I know. I often feel like I fail at investing in my friendships because there’s nobody I like hanging out with more than him. I don’t just enjoy him, but I admire him. Anyone that can keep a girl like me happy and grateful every day is someone special.

Vitaliy, we are into our second decade together and there is never a dull moment in this life shared with you. Getting to celebrate another year of your life feels more like a celebration for Rose and I than you. We’re the ones blessed each day with you on this earth. Your dedication and service to this family truly makes me believe you’re super human. I say this every year, but I’m not really joking, I hope to be just like you when I grow up. Happy Birthday to my Ukrainian! I love you…MORE!
