east bay newborn photography

clients say...

Simply put, Mason did a fantastic job capturing my newborn daughter in our shoot. The shoot was very casual and he was totally cool when my three week old pooped and peed at the end! We had our proofs back in just a few days. The only hard part was narrowing down what we wanted from such a great selection of images!

Mason was phenomenal! It was very clear that Mason has a passion for newborn photography. He was willing to spend the time needed to take good pictures and the final product did not disappoint! We were hoping to have around 15-20 good pictures from the photo session to choose from for a birth announcement, and we ended up with enough great pictures to fill a photo book!

Mason is absolutely AWESOME! Can’t even begin to say how thankful we are for his talent, patience and affordable price!! My son was 5.5 weeks and Mason did not hesitate to take a break when the baby needed to ( which for newborns is often ), didn’t complain that I had it super hot in the house ( cause baby was naked during some pics ), and made some great suggestions for poses inside and outside the house. This guy is top notch!! Take my word for it.

q. when is the best time to take newborn photos? 
a. whenever you feel up to taking photos! any age is a great age to capture your newborn, whether they are several days or several months old, so don't worry too much about timing the shoot "right".

q. do I need to book you in advance for newborn shoots? 
a. newborns are one of those things in life that are difficult to plan around, so I try to keep openings in my schedule for these shoots. once your bundle of joy comes home, and you're feeling up to pictures, let me know and I can usually schedule a shoot (even with just a few days' notice).


q. can we take pictures with other family members during the shoot? 
a. yes! I'm not picky about shooting...I'm yours to dispose of during the shoot.


q. your packages are for 1 hour, but what if we need to stop for a feeding or to calm the baby down? 
a. I'm not a stickler for time and I'm not going to cut things off at the 60 minute mark; you can be sure I won't leave until I'm sure we have LOTS of wonderful images captured.


q. when is payment due? 
a. payment is due at the end of our session  


q. how long will it take to get the photos back? 
a. I will typically deliver a sneak peek within 3 days of the session, and all of the edited photos in ~2 weeks. 


q. are the photos ready-to-print?
a. yes! all of the photos you receive are high-resolution, edited files; ready to print at any photo lab. I also include unlimited retouching as part of the package, so you are welcome to request any changes. 

q. can I order prints from you? 
a. I do offer prints as an option, they can be printed directly from the gallery I provide, and are developed by WHCC, a professional-quality photo lab.
