BOOK YOUR SESSION
Have a question? Let’s chat about your session! Our team is ready to document your next milestone.
Sessions are $250. This covers the time/talent of the photographer and editing. Products and digital files are purchased at your in-studio ordering session or via video chat (if you live out of Orange County). We recommend that you come to the studio so you can see product samples, choose paper types, and see your images on a large screen.
Packages start at $950. Our clients typically spend $1500-$3200 for products, prints, and digital files.

Gilmore Studios Photography Sessions
We are happy to offer a color/style guide or outfit advice (just ask!) Local clients schedule a time to come to the studio for an ordering appointment where you will see your portraits on our large screen. We will help you figure out which portraits are your favorites and how to display them in your home. Out of town clients will view their images on a password protected online gallery followed by a phone call or you can Skype with us to go over your order.
Photography products, digital files, and wall collections are purchased at your viewing session. A pricing guide is available by request.
Family Portrait Session
We have been photographing families in the area since 2002 and we will guide you find the right location at the right time of day. Family portrait sessions can be reserved anytime. We prefer to photograph families in the late afternoon, a couple hours before sunset. We only photograph one session per evening, so be sure to get your family session on the calendar ASAP!
Many of our clients are vacationing in Newport Beach or surrounding beaches and it only takes one hour for a family portrait! We can meet up with you at your beach house, hotel, or at the pier for some beautiful family photography. We will do all the family combos, grandchildren with grandparents, and the whole family reunion. Your gallery will be online so everyone can see the photos!
Newborn Portrait Session
Newborn sessions are typically done during the week at our studio when your little one is 5-14 days old. We encourage all families to come to the studio where we have hundreds of props and backgrounds for your new baby! These sessions typically run 1.5-3 hours (depending on how your little one is acting).
In-home sessions are also offered as a lifestyle/documentary session. We will document your new bundle of joy in his/her nursery but keep in mind we do not bring studio props to your home. These sessions are 1-2 hours.
“First 48 hour” sessions are done at the hospital after mom has had a little time to recover. If you are doing a newborn session in addition to the first 48 hour, we have a package for both. Please inquire by phone so we can get all of your details and due date info ASAP. We will communicate by text with your significant other the day your water breaks so we can schedule a time to come to the hospital.
Photography products, digital files, and wall collections are purchased at your ordering appointment separate from your session fee. A pricing guide is available by request.
Cake Smash Portrait Session
Cake smash sessions include a custom designed cake and custom themed back drop to make this session truly unique for your 1 year old! We will go over different theme ideas with you to make sure it is exactly what you dreamed of. Some sets take longer to prepare (depending on your theme) so please try to book your session 30 days in advance.
We have photographed 500+ weddings in southern California, Hawaii, and New York since 2003. Be sure to check out some of our favorite weddings on our gallery page.
We can help you with your wedding day timeline as well. Please contact us for availability and pricing.
