“Pros: experienced newborn photographer, patient, professional studio, lots of props, works with pets, gives you up to a year to buy more pictures, and beautiful studio.
Cons: you WILL love all the pictures because of the experience and want all of them but they are a little pricey. Be prepared to part with some pictures you love or be ready to spend some money.
Includes: 15 retouched digital images & online viewing gallery.
Duration: About 2 hours (time allows for feeding and changing the baby – we have a Boppy and changing table in the studio) – Kellie was kind enough to give more time since our baby would not fall asleep and introduced us to the phrase FOMO (fear of missing out) which our baby totally has.
We arrived on time and she was ready to go with the direction she thought would be best based on the email sent the previous day in regards to home décor. “
“Our entire experience with Kellie was amazing. It was easy to schedule our appointment and when we got to the studio it looked very professional. She let us get touched up in the dressing room. She was great with the kids and took amazing photos. I was very impressed.”
“We scheduled a family photo session with Kellie in December. My wife and I plus 4 kids 11, 9, 4, and 2. Kellie is great to work with. Kind and patient with the children, had great ideas to bring out the best in us, yet open to suggestions. Studio is clean and professional. Would definitely work with her again!”
“Working with Kellie was nothing short of amazing! We had our newborn photos taken at Knightling. Our baby boy was already 4 weeks old and I was worried he would be a bit too fussy to sit through an entire photo shoot but Kellie was so patient and made us feel very comfortable which eased my nerves. The few times it seemed he was about to be fussy, she worked with us to calm him, and even swaddled and calmed him herself once which was a huge help and, as new parents, taught us a couple tips to calm him down at home too. She had everything in the studio you would need for a newborn-changing table, wipes, boppy pillow, bottle warmer, and chairs, to name a few. She had plenty of props and the studio itself was very inviting. Before the shoot, she explained everything to us over the phone including outfit changes, preferred poses if any, bring props of our own if we had something particular in mind, and she even asked about the color walls in our home so she could set up the best background and intend for any photos that may go up on walls in our home to blend and place nicely. When it was all said and done, she sent us the link to all the photos of the shoot and we chose our favorites. We were absolutely in love with all the photos, it was very hard to narrow down to select favorites. We also purchased the baby board photo book. We love it so much it is the perfect keepsake and purchased an additional one as a gift to family. Kellie was professional, courteous, and worked very well with our son. I would highly recommend her and intend to go back to her with additional purchases of options from this shoot as well as future sessions as our son grows.”
“So glad I found Kellie! After having a horrible experience at JC Penney studio, waiting for 2 hours with an appointment is not ideal if you have children. The photo sessions are private in a huge, clean studio no wait time. Kellie is professional, always on time, creative, great with children, easy to work with and very patient. I’m always pleased with the photos, I feel like she really captures my daughter’s true personality. I will never go anywhere else for my daughters pictures. This is the only studio in the area that has reasonable prices and allows you to keep the files.”
“Kellie took our engagement photos prior to our wedding. She is very professional and well prepared. She had a list of suggested poses that she researched in advance which she knew would work well with our personalities. She also helped with wardrobe and color tones to ensure everything looked great with the lighting. It was a fun experience overall and our pictures turned out amazing! Knightling Studios has a great dressing room so we had our privacy to get dressed and change outfits as needed. We were both very pleased with her work and we recommend her highly.”

“The photos look so awesome. Thank you for doing such an amazing job.”
“So cute!!! Love them all!!! Thank you so much, we are going to cherish these forever!!!”
“The shoot and photos yesterday were amazing; just what I had envisioned but could not articulate. For me, you are a great partner, talented in so many ways but I loved the way you listened, looked and suggested just the thing that shows off the bags in a way I can love. The pole!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Positive brilliance and the bags on the floor; perfect.
Thank you for your open willing nature and most of all your talent.
P.S. the studio is pretty cool too.”

“Working with Kellie from Knightling studio for our engagement photo shoot was truly a gift. Her sense of timing and professional demeanor throughout the day was pitch perfect. Not only did she create excellent compositions and catch great moments but helped us both to relax and ENJOY ourselves. We had a great time laughing and playing. We shot photos in three different locations and she managed to capture a distinct emotional chord in each spot adjusting her photography to support the environment and our relationship to it. We couldn’t be happier with the photos and will treasure both the images and the memory of shooting that day for years to come. Thank you Kellie!”

“I had a great time and Kellie made it really enjoyable to photograph my two twin babies. Kellie was professional and easy to work with. She had a lot of great ideas and made me feel comfortable trusting her with my family. I would recommend her to anyone.”
I’m in love!! Thank you – it’s going to be so hard to decide!!
We really enjoyed working with you and look forward to having photos taken at Knightling Studios again!
“Knightling Studios is located in Irwindale CA close to Duarte and Azusa. Near an industrial area but once inside the studio you’re amazed with the design and layout of the studio. The studio is very clean and inviting. Kellie our photographer walked us through the process from start to finish. She gave me ideas on coordinating our outfits. Kellie captured some very special moments of our kids having a good time and the love they have for one another. She was very friendly, professional and patient with our kids. She made all of us feel comfortable especially our kids which is so important in capturing us at our best. Great overall family experience glad to say we found a place for us to take professional photographs in the near future. I highly recommend Knightling Studios for children, family and individual portraits.”
