Our beautiful studio is located in the heart of Cow Hollow on Laguna Street, just off of Union. So why choose to have your session at the studio? I'm so glad you asked! :)
When you're at the studio you have full use of my entire prop and clothes closet. I have an amazing array of baby outfits, wraps, bed, baskets, hats, and headbands, as well as 5 beautiful maternity dresses for my expecting Mamas. While I will be able to bring some of these items on location, when we're here you get to pick from them ALL. I get new goodies all the time. :)
The studio is west facing and has the most beautiful light that comes through our big, San Francisco bay windows which I love to use for family and maternity photos! My Alien Bee 400 and umbrella give us consistent, creamy light (without the harshness of a traditional flash) for your baby no matter what our fickle city weather throws at us! :)
At around 350 sf, the studio has plenty of room for multiple setups to be ready to go upon your arrival. This means we don't have to take time to break down and set up in between every scene. Studio sessions generally take about half the time of on location ones!
There is a comfy seating space for new parents to sit and relax while I work with your baby, as well as a mini fridge with water and Keurig coffee maker for sleep-deprived new parents! :)
Cow Hollow is an amazing neighborhood to walk around in. Once your session is done, you can take a stroller and walk around the shops and restaurants of Union Street. If you have an older sibling that needs to get some energy out, there are cute little parks close too.
If you can't find street parking there is a paid lot right across the street!
But the number one reason to do your newborn session in the studio? Convenience!! When you come to me there is nothing for you to clean up or prepare for at your own house. All you have to do is bring me your baby and I can do the rest!
