Basic editing includes:
- Hair fly away
- Red eyes
- Skin retouch such as blemishes, wrinkles, teeth whitening, skin smoothing ;
- Clean up background and distractions
- Light slimming is included in your price, HOWEVER, if you would like advanced retouching such as head swaps, detailed editing, composites and extras (fill in nails, removing clothing distractions, limb elongation, etc) that is considered to be advanced retouching, therefore, more time consuming and it costs $35 extra per photo.
All photos are high resolution, cropped and color corrected so you may reprint & enlarge to your heart´s desire.
In order to book a session a $200 non-refundable reservation fee will be required. Note that a 48 hours rescheduling policy is in effect. You must notify me via email if you have to reschedule the session. Weekend sessions have an additional charge of $100.
We kindly ask that you do not take any photographs during the photo session.
Delivery: Approximately 2-3 weeks, the files are transferred electronically. There are no prints in the package.
After the fully retouched files are delivered you are free to share them with your friends via Facebook, blogs and/or other websites. I highly appreciate if you add the following credit, Oxana Alex Photography.
I will keep a digital copy of all your files for 6 month.
The newborn sessions typically range between 3-4 hours for full session and 2 hours for mini session. It is recommended to book your session in advance while you are still pregnant. I can schedule your due date and expect a call as soon as your baby arrives.
I also highly recommend that you schedule your newborn session within the first 8-14 days of birth, this time frame has consistently shown that they are still in their "sleepiest" state. Usually after two weeks, newborns tend to sleep less deeply and become more easily disturbed. Therefore, it is not encouraged to put them into those cute early stage "sleepy" positions. Give me a call if you have any questions or concerns about this.
My studio is kept at a warm temperature in order to keep your baby comfortable. I highly encourage and prefer you come to my home studio because of the available light control and the equipment set-up.
Each session begins with a carefully prepared shot list tailored to your baby with all the props and toys provided. I understand that some babies prefer to rest in certain positions and my job is to follow their lead while delivering the shot list within their comfort zone. The baby's safety and comfort is my number one priority. I will not take a planned photo if the baby doesn't like the pose.
I recommend that parents bring extra milk or formula as they tend to eat more during photoshoots. Being a model is hard work! ;-)
If possible, please keep your baby awake for at least 1-2 hours before the start of your session. This helps keep them asleep during the shoot.
*all newborn photo sessions are held in our studio*
Capture your beautiful pregnancy glow at its best time; usually between 30-35 weeks. This time frame allows you to really see it “pop”.
All of the styling, props, locations and fabrics for this session are taken care of. But feel free to bring your own. Make up and hair can be provided for an additional fee if requested.
You are welcome to bring your spouse or children to your photo shoot, no extra charge. Note that it is suggested that you bring a helper if you have young children in order to occupy them while we photograph adults.
Kids and family:
Children look great in bold colors and textures. If a family session has been booked, please carefully select 3-5 outfit changes for your whole family. Each outfit change should have 1-2 colors. One color is best, do not go over two. Have your clothing set ready prior to the shoot in order to focus on the session. Adding extra people to the shoot does not add extra time, however, I recommend keeping it to immediate family or core members only.
I take a lot of time, care, and pride to make each photo unique and special for every client. I shoot in beautiful places all around Los Angeles, California, including Santa Monica, Beverly Hills, Brentwood, Pacific Palisades, Venice, Culver City, Malibu, Century City, Westwood, West Hollywood, West LA, and Marina Del Rey. I have my favorite spots and would be happy to do a photo-shoot for you catering to your desires and vision. I photo retouch each image with love and care in my photo studio. I have a lot of props for newborns and kids like beds, chairs, toys, fluffy rugs, cute hats, themed accessories and different backdrops. My studio is optimized to shoot newborns in a comfortable setting with perfect lighting, warm temperature and a very clean and safe environment. I am a mother of two and know how to make parents and children feel comfortable in my studio. My whole team is up to date on the most recent vaccinations (including whooping cough and annual flu shots) so newborns will be in a safe and germ free zone. For kids I have some outstanding outfits by high end and luxury fashion designers like Tutu du Monde, Dollcake Vintage, Bonpoint, Ralph Lauren, Fendi and Chloe. I also provide all the props and costumes, including flower crowns, maternity dresses, and tutus for expecting moms. We are located in Brentwood, Los Angeles, California.
