Step 2: Planning Your Session

About a month before your due date we will schedule a design appointment either in person at our studio or over the phone. This is when we will get to know you and your style so that we can custom design your photo session based on the backgrounds, outfits and overall style that you like. 

Step 3: The Photo Session

We will schedule your baby's photo session once they are born. The best time for newborn pictures is between five and ten days after birth. Our newborn sessions take place at our Culver City Studio, and all of your props and outfits for the baby are included. For your comfort, there is a private client lounge to nurse, change and sooth your baby in during your time at the studio.

Step 4: 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. You do not need to decide in advance which of our three Collections you would like to purchase, that decision is made at your ordering appointment after you ave seen your images. Please note that there is a $995 minimum purchase with all of our sessions, and the session fee does not count toward the minimum.
