MATERNITY SESSIONS: Typically OUTDOORS (See our favorite locations in Nor Cal and So Cal)


The best indoor locations have large windows (or glass doors) with

BRIGHT + INDIRECT sunlightWe want to use the ambient light but do not want direct sunlight shining in the room at the time of the session. Take a look at the nursery and when it’s brightest time of day without direct sun in the room and let us know.

3. What props should we use?


– Pets
– Newborn clothing (shoes/onesies)

– Letter blocks
– Floral frame around baby (see examples here)
– Basket/Bassinet

Many couples have a professional hair and makeup appointment before the shoot!

The most flattering lighting is soft and indirect from big windows in these rooms!
