Newborn - ThePodPhoto

We specialize in documenting your baby's First Year milestones at newborn (5-10 days old, sleeping), seven months (sitting) and one year (cake smash & standing.) Most clients book our Baby Milestones package so that their baby's amazing first year of changes is professionally captured.

With over a decade of experience photographing thousands of babies, rest assured that your precious bundle is in the best of hands. We know the importance of preserving your family's most precious moments, and our team will document your baby in a creative and unique way. We are proud to provide an unforgettable experience and create stunning portraits that celebrate you and the beautiful life you created.

Newborn sessions take place between 5-10 days after birth to ensure those sleepy, snuggled-up poses. Please give us a call at 310-391-4500 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 pick a date for the newborn session.

Your newborn session is custom tailored to you and your baby, and we will meet before your session at our studio to discuss style, colors, props and wardrobe. We specialize in creating custom sets that reflect your nursery colors, hobbies, career 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 use 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!)

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. 

Your investment consists of two elements: the Photo Session and Product Collections. Photo Sessions start at $500 and include your design consultation, props, wardrobe, your photographer and assistants' time, editing and the custom design time that goes into your session. Weekend and location fees apply.

Product Collections start at $995, which is our minimum purchase requirement. All products - including digital files - are separate from your Session fees.

At your ordering appointment you will decide which of our three Product Collections you would like to purchase or if you would like to go with our "all digital" option. You do not need to decide in advance of the Session which Collection you would like. 

As a premiere First Year photo studio, our Baby Milestone's package is the most popular. Perfect for parents who want to professionally document the incredible changes that occur during your baby's first year!
