Newborn Photo Sessions
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 have your due date confirmed on our calendar. We recommend calling 2 to 3 months in advance to ensure our availability since we only take three due date reservations per week. Once your due date is booked on our calendar, we will wait for the baby to arrive to schedule his or her newborn photo session. If your baby is already born, please 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 month before your due date, 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 the backgrounds, outfits and the overall styling of your session since 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 Newborn Photo Shoot: All of our newborn sessions take place at our Culver City studio. Infants are photographed between the age of 5 and 10 days old, and we will schedule the session once they are born. On the day of your portrait session, there will be a team assisting Erika, your photographer, so that you get to just sit back, relax and enjoy watching your baby be a little model. We have heaters that hang from the ceilings to keep your baby toasty warm plus tons of tips from our decade of experience to help keep your baby stay sleepy during their session. 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. 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 custom albums, wall art, birth announcements, gifting items 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.
