Jade Thorpe
I had a family photo session with Michael and included my toddler and little dog. We got great photos and Michael was so easy to work with. He managed both toddler and dog so well and captured some magic moments. Thanks so much!
Lauren Toyota
It was our first photo session with our son and we had so much fun. Michael was really great to work with and we absolutely LOVED how the photos turned out. 10/10 recommend to anyone looking for a photographer! We plan on going back when we are ready to redo our family photos.
Katrina Abboud
Nothing but the best experience here! From the scheduling, to the photo shoot itself, to the experience picking out my products, everything was just fantastic! I loved it and will definitely be using them again for other photoshoots!
Shayna Bornstein
Our family had a great experience working with Michael. We had a one month old baby and our one year old Doberman puppy and the shoot went smoothly and photos turned out AMAZING. He has a full studio with great lighting and various backdrops. They were well prepared and on time. After the shoot Courtney took time to go through all of the photos and packages with me. I highly recommend this photographer for your next family photos.
Mikayla Buss
If I could give 10 stars I would. Michael is so easy to talk to and make us feel so comfortable in the studio. The photos came out amazing and captured such amazing photos of our family that I will treasure forever. I had such a hard time deciding which ones I wanted to keep. Courtney was also so sweet and was patient with us through picking photos. I am definitely using them again and would recommend them to anyone. Worth every penny.

Most frequent questions and answers

Sure! We developed this flexible product plan because we have found that people all have different needs. By charging a flat session fee, we cover our costs to produce the session for you like the photographer, editor, and consultants.

From there, you can decide to purchase the products that you want. Our most popular product is our Italian Image Box, which also includes digital files along with all of the images you choose to go inside of it. Contact studio for pricing details.

Our portrait session fee covers the following session types:

  • Family
  • Maternity
  • Boudoir
  • Engagement
  • Individual Portrait
  • Headshots/Lifestyle
  • High School Senior


Our session fee does not cover portrait shoots in wedding attire, these “bridal” sessions have special packages, please contact us for details. 

We do not currently photograph dedicated newborn sessions, however we will photograph family groups with newborns older than 6 months. 

The session fee covers your shoot anywhere within a 75-mile radius from Santa Clarita, California, which will cover most of LA County aside from beaches (Additional fee for beach locations apply). 

Shoots outside of this radius may incur travel charges.

We have a list of outdoor locations available for you to review.

We also offer studio sessions by request at our Valencia studio or a DTLA rental studio (additional fees may apply for rental locations)

Bridal sessions typically result in more advanced editing to accommodate wedding gowns & details, and often require assistants to help with lighting & gown placement. As a result, we have to charge a small additional fee for them.

Our studio does not allow cell phone photographs to be taken during the session or during your ordering appointment.

Your images will be ready within 7 days after your session. We will schedule your reveal at the same time as we schedule your session.

Appointments that are not rescheduled within 72 hours are subject to a $75 rescheduling fee, this includes reveal sessions.

Portrait sessions are approximately 30 minutes long. 

Non-wedding or engagement session reveals will take place over zoom in the comfort of your home. We will schedule your appointment at the same time as we schedule your session.
