Family Photography Services

I offer a wide variety of services such as engagement photos, maternity sessions, anniversaries, family photos, events such as birthday parties and reunions, & newborn photography. There's no limitations on outfits and props and family styled photo shoots can be used for families (including pets), couples, anniversaries & engagement sessions.

 

 

Booking Times for Outdoor Sessions

I book shoots all 7 days of the week. Generally I'll book up to two sessions a day. Sessions lasts about 2 hours on average plus given we're in LA County, say an hour of drive time each way. I have 2 slots available for booking each day:

Morning session: Currently 11:30am. General outdoors daylight session in parks, beaches, city, etc. Good for engagements, families, outdoor parties, & maternity shoots. Also available for newborn and toddler, and modeling & headshot sessions.

Afternoon/Evening Session: Provides a nice mix of daylight and sunset colored scenes. Best for beach locations. Good for engagements, families, & maternity shoots. Also available for newborn and toddler, and modeling & headshot sessions. 

Evening session schedules change as the days grow longer and shorter. Beaches get dark much later than parks. Here is a close but approximate guide:

January: 3pm Early April: 5pm
Late April 5:30pm

Newborn Photo Sessions

Sessions last between 2 and 4 hours (as permitted by the baby ;) ) Family members welcome to be present and take part in newborn sessions. Backdrops and some props provided.

The best time to shoot newborns is during their second week. Sessions are typically held at the client's location. Backdrops require a 10 x 10 sq ft area clear of furniture. Clean living room floors are ideal. A bed in an uncluttered bedroom also works well. Occasionally a lawn works fine in summertime.

Newborn Sessions cost $450 and come with 8 edited images and prints, a CD of the session, and a slideshow. Albums are also available.
