Korean First Birthday Portraits
How It Works
Booking: Give us a call at 310-391-4500 to schedule your in-person or phone consultation to discuss the details of the session and pick a date. We recommend calling 1 to 3 months before your party to ensure our availability. If you're a little late to the game, you can still call us to inquire about our availability since we do sometimes have last minute appointments.
Designing Your Custom Session: Because you and your session are totally unique, we like to meet and get to know you before your photo session. Therefore, about a week or two before your shoot, we will schedule a session design consultation at our studio. At this appointment we will discuss all of the fun details of your shoot and begin planning backgrounds, outfits, the cake, and the overall styling of your session. At this appointment you will also get to tour the studio, check out the props and accessories, and see all of the amazing products that we have to offer!
The Photo Shoot: On the day of your portrait session, there will be a team assisting Leah, your photographer, to ensure your baby is having a great time and looking adorable. All of the props, headbands, hats and outfits will be provided for you at the studio, so there is nothing you need to buy or bring with you, unless of course there is anything specific you would like your baby photographed wearing like their Hanbok or traditional Korean attire. Your custom Smash Cake will be delivered to the studio from our partner SusieCakes in Marina Del Rey who make amazing quality cakes that taste delicious and photograph beautifully! For your comfort, there is a private client lounge to nurse, change and sooth your baby in during your time at the studio.
The Ordering Appointment: About two weeks after your photo session you will come back to our studio for your ordering appointment. This is when we will help you select your favorite images to create your custom party invitations and party display piece. We also offer custom albums, wall art, gifting items, party favors, thank you cards and more.
Investment: Our packages after the session start at $995 with a selection of albums, framing, albums and digital files included. Packages are in addition to the session fee.
