When is the best time to book a session?
Newborn Photography sessions are best booked in the beginning of your first trimester. Baby, Maternity and Family photography sessions are typically booked out 6-8 weeks in advanced, although occasionally I can fit in last minute sessions depending on the week.
Where do the sessions take place?
Newborn Photography Sessions are scheduled in my natural light studio. Designed for complete comfort for your family and optimal natural lighting to achieve the images you see in my portfolio, all materials and props needed for the newborn photoshoot to take place are provided at the studio.
For all other baby, family and maternity photography sessions, I have plenty of locations up my sleeve all over Los Angeles and Orange County that fit great for all baby, maternity and family photography. We will work close together in discussing locations for you to choose what will best fit your desired look to your photography session. I always love exploring new places and am always open to new ideas and locations, so if you have any in mind, please share!

Can you tell me a little bit more about Newborn sessions?
I love to work with natural, light and earthy tones, without an overuse of props, giving your newborn photoshoot a timeless and organic look. I combine standard portraiture with lifestyle to achieve a unique and personal touch to your images. Make sure to visit my newborn session gallery.
Newborn Sessions are best when your infant is within the first two weeks of birth. It is so easy in the excitement of bringing home a brand new baby to forget or let the time pass you by but timing is really critical in scheduling your newborn session. Newborn Sessions should be booked at least 6-8 weeks in advance as only a limited numbers of newborns are scheduled each month to insure I am free to accomidate them all within the needed time frame once they arrive.

What is required of me for a newborn session?
Nothing but a baby! I DO NOT require that you withhold any feedings from your baby for any time prior to our session or keep them awake prior to our session. Rather- I like to schedule around when you have noticed any clues to when your baby is feeds. Most newborns at a young age do not have a set schedule, but we can still work around them. These are such delicate sessions, and to be handled with the upmost care. That means, the same goes with meeting the needs of your baby regardless of any pictures.
I do ask that you just bring an extra set of clothes to go home in, accidents do happen during pictures!
Can you come to my home for a newborn session?
I do offer in-home newborn sessions on a limited bases. There is an extra $150 fee for on-location newborn sessions. Please inquire for more information.
How Long have you been photographing newborns for?
Although my photography career started before I fell in love with baby and childrens' photography, I have been been specializing in newborn and baby photography since 2010.
When will we get to see our pictures from a session?
Your images from your session will be presented in a private online gallery 10-14 days 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!
Maternity Photography Sessions
Maternity Sessions are best done between 7-8 months of your pregnancy, or earlier if you are carrying multiples. Maternity Photography is done either on location within Los Angeles or Orange County or at my natural light studio in Long Beach- all depending on the look and feel you are wanting to achieve in your maternity portrait session. All pregnancy photo sessions are done using natural light.
What should I wear to my maternity or family photography session?
I love to work closely with all my clients regarding wardrobe recommendations based on location of your session. I do offer wardrobe for maternity sessions, and for baby and children sessions, and every client is free to pull from my wardrobe for their own portrait sessions.
