How It Works

The step-by-step process


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 2-4 weeks in advance to ensure our availability. If you're on a tighter schedule, you can still call us to inquire about our availability since we do sometimes have last minute appointments. We shoot both in-studio and at a selection of locations.

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, 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 everyone is having a great time and looking amazing. We have a huge collection of props, headbands, hats, and outfits to dress and style the kids, so the only thing you need to worry about is yourself! For your comfort, there is also a private client lounge to change, touch up hair & makeup or sip on one of our delicious lattes!

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, greeting cards, gifting items, and more.


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.
