Newborn Sessions are best when your infant is within the first 7 to 21 days of birth. The first three weeks are ideal as newborns are comfortable in the fetal position and often sleepy.
Does the session fee include family/sibling pictures?
Of course! In every session, immediate family (parents, siblings) are always included. Extended family is at this time not included in the Newborn Sessions.
If we are going to be in the pictures, what should we wear?
Neutral colors like beige, grey, or light tones work great for Newborn Sessions. I find it's best to avoid black and bold colors. No need to dress up, dress comfortable and like yourself.
Where do Newborn Sessions take place?
We offer newborn sessions in studio and at home. My natural-light studio is located in Santa Monica, CA. I have a collection of props, headbands and outfits that are available for all clients. We also offer lifestyle newborn/family sessions at the privacy of your own home. At-home sessions do not include props and are a great way to show your family in your natural surroundings.
How long will my session be?
Newborn sessions usually take 2 hours.
How many pictures should I expect from the session?
You should expect anywhere from 50-60 images, all edited and retouched.
What is the turnaround time?
Your high-resolution images will be sent to you in a private online gallery 2-3 weeks after your session. Faster turnaround time is available for an extra fee.
Can my pet be in the session?
If you've chosen an at-home session, of course we can include them in any photos you'd like. And although I love and appreciate your furry family members, due to potential allergy and sanitary precautions for all my clients, pets are not allowed to participate in Studio Sessions.
Can I purchase an album from you?
Absolutely! We offer stunning Signature Albums. You can see the information about our albums HERE.
Deposit Fees and Payment
The deposit fee is $100 and is non-refundable and due upon booking. The remaining balance is due on the day of the photoshoot.
What if sickness causes us to reschedule?
If you or a family member are sick, or if the weather is not ideal, we can absolutely reschedule. Due to the nature of newborn photography sick siblings/parents will not be allowed in the studio during the session out of protection for all my clients coming in.
Do you offer any discounts for booking the Maternity and Newborn Sessions together?
