General Info

Here is a list of some of my most asked questions….

When should I schedule my Session?

I am currently scheduling my sessions 4+ weeks out, depending on availability. Contact me as soon as you know you’d like to schedule to have the most variability in dates.

For newborn sessions, it is best to contact me before baby is born.
See more information about newborn sessions HERE.
Maternity sessions are best scheduled between 32-36 weeks, when momma’s belly is nice and round. I recommend scheduling at a point where you are still comfortable and can move around good.
How Long is the average session?
Baby and maternity sessions last between 1-1.5 hours.
Newborn sessions greatly vary with each baby, but on average, a typical session is between 2-4 hours. We take lots of breaks to keep both baby and parent(s) happy. I never rush my sessions so I dedicate as much time as you or your baby will need.
Where are session held?
My studio is located at 10722 Arrow Route #214 Rancho Cucamonga Ca 91730. It is my appointment only…. Newborn and baby sessions (under 12 months) take place in studio. For one year and maternity sessions we can do either studio or outdoors. My studio offers greater versatility, most clients opt for studio sessions
What to wear?
This is your chance to show off your unique style. Be comfortable and confident in what you wear. Keep it simple, keep it fun, keep it you! Gap, Old Navy, and H&M are all great places to start looking! Check out my Pinterest Board HERE for a few ideas! Accessories such as scarves, jewelry, etc add a special touch to outfits. Layers with different textures, colors,etc photograph well. Stay away from clothing with brand names across them or heavy patterns.
My Recommendations…
Newborns – All natural in their birthday suit is best. I have a variety of props including hats, covers, headbands, wraps and blankets available for use during the session.
Maternity – Depending on your type of session (indoor, outdoors, classic or sexy), you will want to choose an outfit to fit your session type and make you feel as beautiful as you are. Pre-pregnancy jeans look great in photos- don’t worry if they don’t button, we will fold them down. Form-fitting tops, tanks, long flowing skirts that sit just under the belly, area also great choices. Choose clothing that really accentuates the belly and body. I also have a verity of clothing for maternity sessions available.
Children – This will depend on age and session location, but keep bright, bold colors in mind!
How long does it take to see my pictures??
My typical turn around (for a full gallery of images) for a regular session is 2-3 weeks. Once your selection is made, it takes 1-2 weeks to process and ship, depending on your order.
Do you do weddings or events?
At this time I do not offer event photography
Do you do family photos?

Studio or Natural light?

Do you offer Mentoring?
