Los Angeles Maternity & Newborn Photographer Fiona Kaye
Your session details are determined by your style which we go over in a complimentary pre shoot consultation. Would you like images that are posed and scripted with me guiding you and your family in specific poses? Or is your style more natural and organic with focus being on the interaction between your family? These session details are important to the styles that I offer. This includes access to studio wardrobe and styling advise. When you think of your style I often encourage clients to think of their lifestyle. Do they enjoy dressing up in formal wear? Are they more laid back and relaxed. In addition we go over what they are going to use their images for. What is their home decor like? Are they going to need wall portraits, albums, coffee table books and gift items? All these session details are complied in a report that will enable me to give you the best experience. I offer three locations each to suit your style.
The Field or the Beach are beautiful open spaces for maternity, baby/child or family sessions. These shoots take place at dusk with the golden sun setting to capture the warm ray of light. There is some walking involved so I always advise parents with little ones to come with a stroller. I try to keep the shoot relaxed and capture both candid moments as well as smiling at the camera moments.
The Studio is ideal for maternity, newborn, baby or child. This is a welcoming space for families and filled with an array of props, wraps and studio wardrobe for mama’s and 0 – 3 years of age for the photoshoots. There is space to feed and change baby to get settled for the shoot, as well as garden for little ones to play once their portion in the shoot is done. This is a space where we can get creative for your photoshoots using both natural and studio lights.
The Home is another location for portrait sessions upon request. These sessions are conducted in the comfort of your home and can be natural and lifestyle in nature or studio lighting depending on the style selected. Its a combination of asleep and awake shots together with nursery details and special areas of your home that you would like to document.
Session details are the cornerstone for Fiona Kaye photography that offers maternity, newborn, children and family sessions.
At Fiona Kaye Photography, client experience is paramount. I am here to guide all my clients from initial contact, photoshoot and creation of the highest quality art work for your home.
To continue documenting babies lives the studio offers little one sessions that capture the ever growing changes of your baby at the sitting stage as well as the first year birthday where we offer cake smash sessions. These sessions are combination of portrait photographs of your toddler, cake smash and with the family. Please follow along recent journeys on social media: Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, Google+

I consult about family who may join you during the shoot such as partners, other children and grandparents. We work together to determine the style, posing, lighting and wardrobe of the photoshoot. Plus, will give you tips to prepare for the photoshoot in a comprehensive magazine that you get to look over at your leisure.
