The experience

wardrobe & styling

Our clients tell us that the biggest stressor for families planning portraits is figuring out what to wear. I understand and have made it simple by offering a complimentary styling appointment to plan your look.  Hair and make-up services are also available from our in-house stylist so you can rest assured you will arrive to your session looking and feeling beautiful.

design appointment

We love working with our clients to create unique and beautiful ways to display their new portraits. We meet together in your home to view your proofs and help you sort through your favorites.  Laurel provides her experienced guidance for the best sizing and finishes to fill your home with portraits of the ones your love the most. You can view an array of our products here.

We love our clients and make it a point to let them know as often as we can. Little surprises in the mail, our annual client appreciation portrait event and early access to special events means that as a Poppy Lea Photography client, you are always at the top of our VIP list.

your session

We offer a variety of locations for our clients, each with their own unique beauty.

maternity | baby | family
The field located in Southern Orange County is the perfect place year-round for your session, from spring's delicate flowers to autumn's golden grasses. Sessions in the field happen just before sunset or during mornings first light to capture the warm glow from the first and last moments of sunlight.

lifestyle | newborn | baby
Using the natural light and unique architecture in your home, it's the perfect place for your tiny newborn baby. This allows you to be comfortable (even nap!) in your own home while I bring everything we need to create stunning images of your new bundle of joy. During a lifestyle session, think cuddles, giggles, bubbles and baths - all done in your own home so you'll remember these moments forever. 


We offer several session options to create the perfect photographic art that is specially designed for your space. This can include a wall portrait, an heirloom album and digital images that you would like to preserve for generations.The creative session fee formally books your portrait appointment and covers the pre-session consultation in person or by phone, your portrait session, post-session processing and preparation of your images and a private viewing/ordering appointment at our studio. It does not include any prints or products. Clients may purchase products via Collections or A La Carte.
