welcome to

a pocket of time photography

We are an award-winning fine art portrait studio offering maternity, newborn, child and family photography. Located in Sherman Oaks, California, we offer shoots throughout the San Fernando Valley and surrounding Los Angeles area. All of our sessions are outdoors, relaxed and fun. We pride ourselves on offering an enjoyable experience, not a stressful one. We are uniquely recognized for our outdoor newborn portrait sessions. These natural, beautifully organic, newborn sessions showcase the delicate beauty of a new baby softly nestled in Mother Nature to create true timeless works of art.
