All products such as albums, custom framing and digital files are purchased separately from the Photo Session. Collections range from $995 - $2795, or design your own custom package. There is a minimum purchase of $995 for each individual Photo Session.

Newborn sessions take place between 5-10 days after birth to ensure those sleepy, snuggled-up poses. Please give us a call to have your due date confirmed on our calendar. We typically book up months in advance since we only accept three due dates per week; however, we do often have last-minute availability. To confirm your due date we require a non-refundable 50% deposit of your session fee. Once the baby is born we will schedule a date for the newborn session.

Your newborn session and the full year of pictures is custom tailored to you and your baby. About a month before your due date, we will meet at our studio to discuss style, colors, props and wardrobe. We specialize in creating custom sets that reflect your style, nursery colors, hobbies, or any unique ideas you may have.

All of the outfits and accessories for your baby are included with your session. Most of the hand knit soft props and wraps are made of 100% natural organic yarn. Everything is washed after each session with detergents that are free of harsh chemicals.

All of our newborn sessions take place at our beautiful state-of-the-art Culver City studio. The day of your photo session there will be one to two assistants helping your photographer to ensure your baby's safety as well as a relaxed experience for you. You are right next to us during the session and we encourage your input and feedback throughout the three hour session. There is a comfortable Green Room for you to relax, change, feed baby and enjoy complementary snacks and beverages in during your time at our studio. There is also a TV with Netflix in the Client Lounge to entertain older children (and dads!)

Approximately two weeks after your photo session you will return to our studio for your ninety minute ordering appointment. As a full service studio, we offer a variety of heirloom albums, custom framing, boutique birth announcements and a variety of grandparent gifts. We have a full time re-toucher on staff, and natural-looking re-touching is included with everything that you purchase.


"The Pod Photography is your go-to location for the most professional and stunning baby photos in Los Angeles. The entire staff is one of the nicest group of people I've met, and not only did they treat our baby with the utmost care, the studio was stocked with coffees, cappuccinos, teas, cookies and snacks. This company is first class all the way, and I would recommend them above all others to shoot my baby, and when she gets older, our family portraits. Five Stars!!!!"
