MATERNITY SESSIONS
The best time for your maternity session is when you are 28-32 weeks pregnant. There are three custom sets / outfit changes included with the session. To add a partner or children it is an extra $100. 


SCHEDULING YOUR DUE DATE
We recommend booking your "due date reservation" with us when you are between 20 - 30 weeks pregnant to ensure our availability and time to design your custom sets. Newborn sessions take place between 5-10 days after birth to ensure those sleepy, snuggled-up poses. Once the baby is born we will schedule a date for the newborn session. Newborn sessions are weekdays only.


SCHEDULING
Please book online or call us at 310-391-4500 to have your due date confirmed on our calendar and to pick a date for your maternity session.  We typically book up months in advance for due date reservations and weeks to months in advance for maternity sessions. To confirm your sessions, we require a non-refundable 50% deposit of your session fee.

All products, including digital files, are purchased separately, with a minimum purchase of $1,000.

Approximately two weeks after your photo session, you will return to the studio for your Ordering Appointment.

Our average client spends $2,000 - $4,000 after the session. 


SESSION PLANNING APPOINTMENT
Your maternity and newborn sessions are custom tailored to you and your baby. We love to meet with you at our studio a few weeks before your maternity session to get to know your style, try on dresses and plan every detail of your portraits in advance.

There are three custom sets / outfit changes included with the session. To add a partner or children, an additional set, location or weekend session - each is an additional $100. 


WARDROBE & PROPS
We have a large selection of maternity dresses and fabric wraps included with your session, so no need to worry about going shopping! We also have your baby's outfits covered for the newborn session plus an endless supply of custom props.


YOUR MATERNITY SESSION
Your maternity portrait session is approximately 90 minutes and is 2-3 outfits, We strongly recommend that you have your hair and makeup professionally done. A great company that our clients like to use is GlamSquad. Family and siblings are welcome to join for an additional $100 session fee. 

Health & Safety

SAFETY AND HEALTH
Your family's health and safety is our number one priority. We diligently disinfect our studio, outfits and props after each session. Each member of the team assisting during your session has their current Flu and TDAP vaccines and is expertly trained in baby safety. Rest assured that you are in great hands, we've specialized in baby photography for over a decade! 


NEWBORN SESSION
All of our newborn sessions take place at our beautiful state-of-the-art Culver City studio. Sessions are 2-3 hours in length and we capture about 3-5 different sets with your baby.

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 Client Lounge 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!)


DISPLAYING YOUR ART
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.
