Frequently Asked Questions

Q. When should I schedule my session?

The sooner the better! It is best to schedule the moment you've decided to book so you don't have to worry about my availability and it also gives us time to plan a perfectly tailored photo session that suits your personality best.

Q. What do we need to have ready or bring?

You can plan to have any sentimental items that you would like incorporated into the session on hand. We will go over the details of your session in advance as part of our pre-session consultation or questionnaire too.

Q. What age is best for a newborn session? 

I believe photographing newborns is best within the first couple of weeks of life because they are the sleepiest and tiniest they will ever be during this timeframe. If your baby happens to be older than this we can still get some fabulous images so don't hesitate to reach out to me to schedule your baby's 1st photo session.

Q. Where do you photograph newborn sessions?

I typically bring my professional, portable portrait studio to you so that you can be in the comfort of your own home during the very first precious moments of parenthood! I require about 5’ x 8’ of space for the portable studio. 

If you prefer to come to my home in La Habra for your newborn’s first photo session we can make that happen too. I photograph newborns under my skylight in my dining room when desired. My home is a pet-friendly environment…cats and dogs live here. They will be in a separate room if requested. Please let me know if there are allergies or concerns of any kind before booking.

Q. How many setups/looks will you capture?

We usually are able to get a minimum of two to three different setups/looks within the timeframe for newborns and full personal branding sessions. All other sessions are typically done at one location with a variety of natural settings.

Q. Will you take sibling photographs and family photographs too?

Family photographs and sibling sessions are available in addition to the newborn session. I adore capturing the whole family! No children (including siblings) are to be present during the main newborn session due to the length & sensitivity of these special sessions. Please let me know if you'd like to add this option to your session and we can discuss the details!
