How do I book a session?
You can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or call me directly at 310.702.0599
Once your session fee has been received and your contract signed we can choose a date for photography.
What forms of payment do you accept?
I take all major credit cards, venmo, zelle, and of course a check works too!
Where are you located?
I am located in the North Valley but I travel to the entire Los Angeles are. Including but not limited to: Woodland Hills, Augora Hills, Thousand Oaks, Calabasas, Northridge, Porter Ranch, Westwood, Beverly Hills, Santa Monica, West Los Angeles and beyond.
All of my newborn sessions are done in the comfort of your own home. This way you don't have to take your brand new baby out of the house. 99% of my maternity shoots are done on location in a nature setting. I also have a small home studio if you prefer not to be outside.
When should I book my session?
It’s never too early to book your session. This will ensure you are able to get a slot. It will also give us plenty of time create customized look for your sessions. Of course, if it’s the last minute don’t be discouraged! If I can fit you in I will!
For maternity shoots 4-6 months is ideal. After the first trimester, when you start to feel energized again. And before you are too tired to shoot on location.
For newborns, it’s best to reserve your due date during the first or second trimester. After the baby arrives we can schedule the session for when baby is 5-14 days old.
Does the session fee include family and siblings?
Absolutely! This is your shoot and I want to plan the session so that you get all the images you are dreaming about!
Do I need to bing props?
I have everything you might need as far as props go, but if you have something you want me to incorporate I am happy to do so.
What if I am running late?
Please plan to arrive at the location 10-15 early. If you’re running late, I may be able to extend your session, but if I have another appointment after yours it won’t be possible.
I make my schedule to take advantage of ideal lighting conditions and so that we have enough time to have a creative and collaborative session.
What if I want to reschedule my appointment?
I am happy to reschedule your appointment with at least 72 hours notice. However, I cannot guarantee availability. It’s also important to remember that newborns are best photographed before they reach 14 days. Sometimes it can feel overwhelming. Just remember that I will be there to take care of everything and that I am an expert at soothing and calming little ones. It may very well be a welcome break!
Can you just give me the RAW files unedited?
I do not offer this type of service. I take great pride in my work and never let an unfinished image leave my computer. After our shoot I will select the photos that represent the best of our session and, after basic color correction and touch ups, they will be released for you to view in an online gallery. Once you’ve selected your favorites, I will go in an do a more detailed touch up before they are released. I will always do my absolute best to honor any editing requests that you have.
