Pasadena Family Photographer

Capturing your precious moments 

Your Pasadena family Photography

Sometimes we don't realize that these were the "good old days" until they're over. Let's bottle up some of those sun-drenched, love-soaked moments to savor forever. 

I'm not here for the stiff and posed family photos. I'm here to photograph the moments -- the way that your family laughs together, they way that you play with your children, and the love that you share. I use a variety of prompts and games (even for the grown-ups!) to keep you laughing and your focus on each other throughout your session. 



It starts with an email. Once we've connected, we'll discuss availability and what type of session you're looking for. (Please keep in mind that fall is my busiest season and usually books 2-3 months out -- so get on my calendar early!) 

After we've agreed on a date, I'll send you my booking materials so that you can officially reserve your date with a signed contract and $300 non-refundable retainer.  

1. Say Hello

2. Planning your session

Once you're booked in, we'll start planning your session!

I have a location menu to help you choose the best location for your session and some style tips to help you decide how to style your family. Don't worry, I don't leave you alone with these steps. I'll be checking in to offer help and second opinions if you need them. 

Once you've arrived at the location, it's time to relax and have fun -- your work is done!  Let me take it from here and guide your family through prompts and games to get your family connecting and enjoying each other.

Once we've wrapped, I'll text you sneak peeks within 48 hours so that you can get excited about the magic that we captured.  

3. Shoot day

Within 2-3 weeks, your beautiful gallery will land in your in-box for you to enjoy.  My sessions are all-inclusive -- so there's no pressure to choose your favorites right away. They're all yours to keep. 

But when you are ready to choose your favorites and print, your print credit will be waiting for you. I've selected the best labs and products for your gallery store and you can use your print credit to buy prints, albums, or matted frames that are drop-shipped directly to your door.

The details
Say Hello


"Chandra is the best photographer I've ever worked with. We've now had our family photos done twice with her and I couldn't possibly be happier. Chandra has a natural ability to evoke calm and ease in a photoshoot; she has perfect cues to help you figure out what to do and enough guidance to help you enjoy your time with your family to really get quality photos that speak and paint a feeling and story.

Chandra has great locations that she scouts and is a wizard with using natural light to her advantage. The feeling and stories in the images really look like she captured private moments and paint this heartwarming result that is something I've never experienced before. I'm overwhelmed looking at her photos trying to choose my favorites because there are so many. I'm so impressed and completely thrilled about our experience.

Hiring Chandra to photograph our micro wedding was the best decision ever. We purposely sought out a family photographer because we wanted the photographs to capture the love and joy of an intimate family event, and they did just that. I am quite an awkward person, but the silly prompts she used for my husband and I resulted in the loveliest, most natural photos that captured the happiness we felt with each other that day. Other than being an extremely talented photographer, she's also very professional and easy to work with. We highly recommend her.

Chandra has been taking our family pictures for years, and everytime she captures something I've never seen before. She goes out of her way to scout the best locations, the best lighting, the best time of day; she works overtime on every aspect of producing stunning photography.

She has great communication through the whole process (seeking input and offering ideas) and a very fast turn around time. She's the best out there.

I have had two amazing experiences with Chandra Wicke Photography. I have a kids clothing company and she has done two photo shoots for my company. First of all, her work is absolutely beautiful, magical and amazing. She is very talented at photography and takes quality photographs that really capture the feeling of each moment. It is a gift to have that kind of sensibility.

Additionally, she is so communicative and responsive. She organizes all of the details, she responds to any questions really fast. She is so reliable and professional. Finally, she is a genuinely kind, friendly and fun person to work with! I can’t recommend her enough. You will enjoy the process and be amazed by the photographs in the end!

"Your slideshow brought me tears of joy. Thank you for giving me the best birthday present any mother could ask for. I was laughing out loud and emotional all at the same time. I told my husband that I love these photos and the thought of Max looking at them in 10, 20, 30 years from now brings me tears of joy. THANK YOU! I am literally crying right now."
