Where to baby & family photography sessions take place?
Baby and familyphotography ( infants one year and younger) is always done in my natural light studio. My studio is central to both my Orange County and Los Angeles clients being based in Long Beach.
When is the best time to photograph my baby?
If you missed the newborn sessions, 3 months in the studio is a great age to start! Otherwise, I recommend waiting to photograph your baby between 6-8 months of age. Around this time your baby is hitting some adorable milestones such as sitting up, which gives us much more flexibility and options in posing for your session.
What time will sessions take place?
Baby photography sessions take place typically in the morning/early afternoons depending on the time of year. If we are needing to work around a nap time, please let me know as we can discuss these options to get your baby at their prime!
Can family jump in a few pictures with the baby?
Of course! Family/sibling pictures are always encouraged and welcomed. Often starting out the session with just Mom or Dad helps the baby warm up to the camera!
How about wardrobe, can you help me with picking what is best?
Wardrobe is so important in any photography session, I work very closely with my clients to make sure you are comfortable with your wardrobe selections, and give any guidance needed. I do offer wardrobe for baby sessions you are welcome to use as well.
How many pictures should I expect to proof from the session?
Baby photography sessions are anywhere from 60-80 images, all edited and retouched.
Are the images retouched?
Yes, all images you will be presented with are always retouched and edit. The quality you see on my website, is what you should expect back in a session
When will we get to see our pictures from a session?
Your images from your session will be presented in a private online gallery 3-4 weeks after your session date, ready for you to download. Your gallery will be in a password protected gallery for you to view and share with who every you like!
Am I able to purchase digital files from my baby session?
Yes! We live in a digital age, and I value my clients desires to obtain digital files from their session. When purchasing the digital files I will provide you with a list of recommended printers to get the most of your images.
Is hair and makeup included in the session fee?
No, hair and make-up services are not included in the session fee. Upon booking a date, I am happy to share a stying guide with my favorite vendors!
Can my Pet be in the session?
Although I love and appreciate your furry family members of the family, due to potential allergy and sanitary precautions for all my clients, pets are not allowed to participate in studio sessions.
How long are baby and family photography sessions?
Although sometimes babies decide they are done sooner than later, Baby and Family Photography sessions are 1 hour long.
