Gilmore Studios Photography Sessions
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. 🙂
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 or in the early morning before the sun is shining down too harsh. We have a limited amount of sunsets, 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 an 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 1-2 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.
Cake Smash Portrait Session
Cake smash sessions include a themed cake and backdrop to make this session exciting for your 1 year old! We will go over different theme ideas with you to make sure we are on the same page. Some sets take longer to prepare (depending on if it is custom) 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.
