Family & Baby Session Information
Where do baby & family photography sessions take place?
Baby photography can be done in the natural light studio, or at an outdoor location within Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside, and San Bernardino Counties ( please inquire for any travel sessions outside these counties). Depending on the location and look you want to set for your backdrop, we will work together determining what will fit best for your session.
When is the best time to photograph my baby?
If you missed the newborn sessions, then 3 months in the studio is a great age to start! Otherwise, I recommend waiting to photograph your baby between 6-8 months of age. Around this time your baby is hitting some adorable milestones such as sitting up, which gives us much more flexibility and options in posing for your session. Any sessions done before 6-9 months are recommended to be in the studio.
What time will sessions take place?
Outdoor photography sessions take place typically in the late afternoon/early evenings or early morning depending on the time of year. Baby studio sessions are done in the mornings to early afternoons. If we are needing to work around a nap time, please let me know as we can discuss these options to get your baby at their prime!
Are props included in the session?
Yes! All props for the session are included. If you have any specific requests of props you have seen on my site, please let me know!
Can family jump in a few pictures with the baby?
Of course! Parent/sibling pictures are always encouraged and welcomed. Often starting out the session with just Mom or Dad helps the baby warm up to the camera! You will want to bring someone to watch the older siblings until they are added into the photoshoot.
How about wardrobe, can you help me with picking what is best?
Wardrobe is so important in any photography session, I work very closely with my clients to make sure you are comfortable with your wardrobe selections, and give any guidance needed. I love dresses in sessions, and recommend all my clients to wear them. Here is a Pinterest Board for "What To Wear" to give you some ideas. Simple colors like creams, greys, pastels, light tones, work great for these light and airy sessions. I ask my clients to stay away from black and bold colors, as they can stand out in a non flattering way in the images. No need to dress up if you don't want to, dress comfortable and like yourself. T-Shirts and jeans look great for men, and a maxi dress for women or knitted sweater for the mamas. When in doubt, bring a few options to the studio for us to decide from! I'll ask everyone to get everyone barefoot in the studio sessions (parents included), it achieves that comfortable style of photos that I strive for.
How many pictures should I expect to proof from the session?
Baby photography sessions are anywhere from 50+ images, all edited and retouched.
Are the images retouched?
Yes, all images you will be presented with are always retouched and edit. The quality you see on my website, is what you should expect back in a session
When will we get to see our pictures from a session?
Your images from your session will be presented in a private online gallery 3-4 weeks after your session date, ready for you to download. Your gallery will available for you to view and share with whoever you like!
Am I given the digital files from my baby / family session?
Yes! We live in a digital age, and I value my clients desires to obtain digital files from their session. The digital files are included in your packages and I will provide you with a list of recommended printers to get the most of your images.
