– The session includes 3-4 hours of photography time. We do not expect your baby to adhere to our schedule, we will work around their feed/diaper schedule. We can be done earlier, just depends on how happy your baby is feeling on the session day.
– It is a must that someone from the family accompany the new Mom. We will need them to help during the session in case the mom cannot. For the baby’s safety we always like to have a family member as a spotter during the session.
– The session takes place at the studio located at 3538 Golden Gate Way # A, Lafayette, CA. The studio is open from 10:00am – 5:00pm. Parking is available for the duration for the portrait session.
– You will have to sign a release for us to be able to photograph your baby.
– We only photograph babies under 10 days. Your baby will literally change before your eyes, we want to make sure that we capture this wonderful stage.
– We have props/blankets that you can choose from depending your style. It is highly encouraged that you bring a prop that has great sentimental value for your family.

Your baby will be naked for throughout the session (we keep the studio toasty so that they are taken care of). Bring your diaper bag, as your baby may need several changes during the session.
It may be difficult for a mom to arrive prepared for the session. Mom’s should carry their makeup kit with them, you can wear makeup while we photograph your baby. A makeup artist can be arranged for as well for a small fee.
