What to expect at your newborn session!

Hello! I am Lori! 
GIVE ME YOUR BABIES! Hehe.. seriously though, feel free to pass off your cutie, kick back, and even take a nap. (you wouldn't be the first.)  I promise, I'll give them back... maybe...

JK! I have two cute ones of my own! We are Pleasanton natives. I am so blessed to have this awesome family, and live and work in the town we grew up in. Being a Mommy myself, I have a true passion for capturing this special time in your life.  There is nothing quite like it. I shoot weddings (I do it for the cake and beer ) , families, events,  pretty much everything.. but newborns are my favorite! 

I have a ton of props and cute stuff for your little one! Wraps, hats, headbands, you name it! No need to bring anything unless you want to! If you are ordering items off etsy, make sure you do it way ahead of time! Sometimes it takes a while to get those cute hand made outfits/headbands/etc .

I am so honored to be voted "BEST OF PLEASANTON" for 2016  !  
Thanks so my awesome clients and community! 

My studio is located at 818 Main. St. Suite, G , in downtown Pleasanton. 
I am on the same block as the Main St. Brewery & across the street from the Pleasanton Hotel.  
There is a parking spot in the lot just for you! 

 Come on in and get cozy! Please plan on 2-3 hours for your session. Dad can bring his laptop/ipad, or run out to get lunch during the session. I am a firm believer in jammie pants and comfy clothes for this fun, but rather lengthy photo session.  I crank up the heat (80 degrees!) to make for a happy, half naked, sleeping baby.  Just a heads up! It gets toasty!!
 Bring snacks for yourself, a pacifier,  LOTS of milk (pumped, formula, or straight from the source) for the little one..  whatever gets that baby milk drunk! Sleepy babies are best for portraits. It takes a LOT of patience and often many feedings to get all those fun shots. 

 I like to shoot for up to 3-4 different set ups/poses. Your final gallery will contain 40-50 final edited images from your session.
For sibling photos, I recommend having someone drop in with big bro/sis for one shot, and then take them home, Since sessions are rather lengthy, and a quiet, calm atmosphere is best for sleepy baby portraits. 

A 50% deposit is required to book prior to baby's arrival. I accept, check, credit, & paypal. 
Your gallery of edited, full resolution images will be posted online three weeks from your session date. You can download them directly off the site! 

See you at the studio!  
 818 Main St, Suite G (upstairs) Pleasanton.
There is a designated parking spot in the lot.
