Marking Each Special Occasion

As busy parents, we often focus more on planning - for ourselves and our families - than living through the moments we plan. With milestones, this can be especially true. As a mother of two, I understand how easy it can be to have the event overshadow the experience.

Our studio sessions are lively, fun experiences designed to allow you a chance to take in the moments that matter while giving you the best possible standard of professional photography. With a selection of offered props, we get to design the session of your choice. So each photo taken can serve as a more permanent reminder of the times that make you the most proud, with images that bring you and your family right back no matter how many years have passed. 🎉

Since arriving in Mountain House, CA I’ve helped preserve the memories of hundreds of California Families.

"The photos looked like they had just been printed for a high fashioned family magazine!! You would've never guessed the flaws behind the scenes!!! (1 child wouldn't sit still, 1 child decided he was going to catch attitude, pout, and cry because he no longer wanted to take photos, and 1 child was in the beginning stages of teething) yet she was still able to pull off some beautiful photos!!! I will definitely always recommend Chioma to everyone I come across!!!"

Frequently Asked Questions

WHEN IS THE BEST TIME TO PHOTOGRAPH MY BABY?

I prefer to photograph newborns the first 2 weeks of their lives, ideally 7-14 days but I have had older babies come in as well!. It is best to book your session well in advance so please give me a call as soon as you know your baby's due date. I will make a tentative booking for 10-21 days after your due date and we can amend it if your baby is early or late. Newborn sessions can take up to four hours and I usually only book them Monday to Friday. However, sometimes I have Saturdays available at an extra cost of $100. All newborn sessions start at 10am. I only ever book one newborn session a day so the day is yours and there is no rushing your baby.

HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?

The session fee is $150. This fee secures your booking and is deducted from the package you choose to buy after your session. The session fee is non-refundable. I have 3 packages and they all include digital images you have selected with a print release. Please refer to the pricing page for more details on the packages.

DO I NEED TO BRING ANY PROPS, OUTFITS OR ACCESSORIES TO MY BABY'S SESSION?

None at all! I have a range of outfits, wraps, props and accessories for your session. However if you have something special or of sentimental value that you would want me to include in your photos, please bring them along!​

HOW LONG IS A NEWBORN SESSION?

Newborn sessions typically last 1-3 hours but it all depends on the baby. All babies are different and I always allow time for feeding, settling and cuddling. Mini sessions last about an hour

WHAT TIME DOES MY SESSION START?

All sessions start by 10am, Monday to Friday

IS IT POSSIBLE FOR MY PARTNER AND MY OTHER CHILDREN TO BE A PART OF THE SESSION?

Partners and siblings are welcome to join but not for a mini session.

WHAT SHOULD I WEAR FOR MY PHOTOS WITH MY BABY?

Plain and neutral colors like black, white, creams beige and other soft, neutral colors always work best in family photos as they are not distracting and will not take attention away from your faces! Skin on skin images are also amazing and beautiful! These are just tips but the decision is all yours. The room will be very warm to keep baby comfortable so it's best to wear something light. Baby may also poo and wee on way so please come with a change of clothing incase there are accidents!

WHEN WILL I SEE THE IMAGES TAKEN?

Within 2 weeks after your session I will invite you back to my studio or schedule a zoom call for a viewing and ordering session. You will be shown 20-35 professionally edited images on a beautiful slide show. After viewing, you will then select the images you want in your package. After selection and payment the digital images will be sent to you via we transfer to download immediately.

DO YOU WORK ON WEEKENDS?

I only book sessions from Monday to Friday. However, I have some Saturdays available for an extra fee of $100

HAVE YOU DONE ANY TRAINING TO WORK WITH NEWBORNS?

Yes! I specifically trained to be a newborn photographer at the Russ Jackson Academy, the leading Newborn Photographer in London. I have also trained on posing newborns safely and pediatric first aid. I have invested in a lot of training workshops and I only practice safe posing techniques, putting the safety and comfort of your newborn first.

WHERE IS YOUR STUDIO LOCATED?

I work from my home-studio located in Mountain House California, 95391 where I have created a warm, safe and comfortable environment for you and your baby and I have all props and equipment set up and ready for your arrival! Unfortunately, I do not do home visits.

CAN I BUY RAW IMAGES?

RAW images are not available for sale. After your session, you will receive professionally edited images of your choice in JPEG format.

Click below to schedule a time to go through your preferences and choose a preferred date close to the time of baby's special occasion. If there’s availability and a good fit, I’ll send over forms to get started and hold the date.
