family portrait pricing and cost of photography at the Newport Beach back bay

Family portrait session at the Back Bay in Newport Beach, CA.

We are so fortunate to live in a place where it’s photo season year round. 🙂 There are so many great locations to photograph your session in.  Parks, missions, beaches, urban locations, rustic, etc.  You name it – Orange County, CA has something like it.  Once you know the style you like – we will help narrow down the exact location that fits your vision.

After the session, images will be put online in a private gallery for you 7-10 days later.  You can select which digital images you want in your collection and can also order prints, albums, canvases and more.  We don’t want to overwhelm you with options, but if you think of it – we can most likely make it for you. 🙂


Newborn Portrait Session

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 1-2 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 long.

“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 email or 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 separate from your session fee.
