FAQ

When do we get our photos?
You will have your photos back within two weeks.

Why so long?
We usually have between 5-7 sessions ahead of yours to edit first and we do not like to rush. We pride ourselves on giving you perfect photos. Each photo is hand edited and not run on auto, like you would get from a local print shop.

Do you provide props?
With our newborn sessions – yes, everything is provided. With our outdoor child/family sessions, we provide only a few basic items to sit on and play with, if needed. Our style is “less is more” and we prefer sunlight and mother nature to be our “props” rather than random manufactured items.

Can you post a few pictures on Facebook or Instagram as a sneak peek? 
Yes we would be happy to if you ask us, but we will choose when and what we post.

How many images do I get with my family/maternity session and can I print them?
A full family (or maternity) session will get you around 40 images. They will be sent to you via a Dropbox download link and you are welcome to make as many personal prints as you would like.

Where is a good place to get my images printed?
Ideally through us! The highest level of craft and care goes into our fine art prints. They take some time to be done properly, but they are worth the wait! Our fine art prints are printed on German Hahnemuhle papers because we believe your work should look its best, and Hahnemühle’s are simply the best. This fine art matte paper has a subtle texture to it that gives it a very tangible feel and is 100% cotton and 308 gsm in thickness. If you are looking for a more budget-friendly alternative, Mpix.com is a great online source.

How can I book a session?
In order to schedule your photography session, there is a $50 fee deposit due at booking along with a signed contract to secure the date and time. The remaining balance is due on the day of your session immediately before it begins.

When is the best time to schedule my newborn photography session? 
Newborns are best photographed during the first two weeks of life. During this time, they curl easily and won’t protest as much when being moved into different positions. A typical newborn session will last around two to three hours. Please contact us prior to your due date to tentatively book a session to ensure we can fit you in on our calendar. When your baby arrives, contact us to finalize a session date.

When is the best time of day to schedule my family/maternity portrait session? 
We only shoot outdoors during the best time of day for the prettiest lighting – in the early morning or late afternoon when the sun is not so harsh.  Exact times vary depending on the time of the year.

Do you travel for sessions?
Yes we are happy to travel to you. A $50 travel fee will apply to locations more than 15 miles from Sherman Oaks, CA.
