SCHEDULING YOUR DUE DATE 
The best time to book your "due date reservation" is when you are between 20 - 30 weeks pregnant to ensure our availability and time to design your custom sets.


NEWBORN SESSIONS 
Newborn sessions take place between 5-10 days after birth to ensure those sleepy, snuggled-up poses and are weekdays only.

If your baby is already born and and you did not reserve your due date in advance, feel free to check our availability since we sometimes have last-minute openings. We are generally NOT able to photograph babies between two weeks and three months of age since we can not guarantee that they will sleep during the session. Please do not book online if your baby falls within that age, but feel free to call us to discuss.


BOOKING YOUR DUE DATE / NEWBORN SESSION
Please give us a call at 310-391-4500 or book online to have your due date confirmed on our calendar or book your baby's newborn session if they are under two weeks old.

To confirm your session, 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.

INVESTMENT
The minimum investment for a newborn session with our studio is $1,650. There is a $650 session fee for your photographer's time, custom set design, props, outfits, assistants, and all the time that goes into the personalized planning of your portrait session. All products, including digital files, are purchased separately, with a minimum purchase of $1,000 per session.

Approximately two weeks after your photo session, you will return to the studio for your Ordering Appointment. This is when you will be presented with your images and you will decide which of our Collections or A La Carte options you will purchase. Our average client spends $2,000 - $4,000 after the session. 


SESSION PLANNING APPOINTMENT 
Your newborn session is custom tailored to you and your baby in every way. About a month before your due date, we  will have a Session Planning Appointment either in-person at our studio or over the phone to discuss set design, colors, props and wardrobe. We love to create custom sets that reflect your nursery colors, hobbies, career or any unique ideas you may have!


WARDROBE & PROPS
All of the outfits, props and accessories for your newborn are also included with your session. Everything is washed after each session with detergents that are free of harsh chemicals.

For more elaborate set designs or fresh flowers, additional charges may apply - just talk with your photographer about your vision and we will bring it all to life!

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 COVID, 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!


YOUR BABY'S 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 there are four custom sets of your baby included. Additional sets are $100.

Family and sibling photos are welcome during your portrait session, a $100 sibling/family fee applies.

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!)


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