Menifee Newborn Baby Photographer

Why invest in baby photos? Is it worth it to hire a newborn photographer?

Are newborn & baby photos worth it? Absolutely! See this post for more detail. Newborn and baby photos are a cherished investment.

You’ve waited so long for your little one to arrive, and once they do, they’ll change your life forever.

There is something so magical about newborns and babies…and they’re only so little for a moment!

My goal with every session is to capture images you’ll treasure forever, no matter how much your baby has grown (take it from me – I have teenagers!)

Emily Menzie specializes in classic & timeless newborn, infant, and child photography in Menifee and surrounding areas throughout Southern California including Murrieta, Temecula, Riverside County, San Diego, and Orange County.

Preemie Newborn Photos | Baby Finn is so cute!

I’m often asked when is the best time for newborn photos, and honestly it depends! Generally, between 5-10 days old is ideal, but every baby is so different. Babies under 2 weeks old tend to be extra sleepy and their skin is still pretty clear (not flaky or breaking out, as sometimes happens with new babies–especially around 2 weeks old). Preemies are often the exception to the rule, as they tend to stay sleepy until around the time they would have been full term so preemie newborn photos work well beyond the two week recommendation.

Cutie little Finn was born a month early, and his session ended up being right around the time he was due. We were originally scheduled a week prior, but unfortunately I became ill and had to reschedule his session. He had become more alert by the time of his photos, but I found he loved being on his tummy and that helped to get some sweet shots of him! He is so adorable and I loved meeting him and his parents.

Beautiful Camryn | Baby Photographer near Temecula, CA

{ Baby Photographer near Temecula, CA }

Oh. My. Goodness. Camryn is such a doll!! I absolutely LOVED her hair and she is as cute as it gets! Getting to photograph Camryn and her family was such a treat! December was full of 2-3 month old cuties, not an age I get to typically photograph very often, and they were all so adorable.

And that’s a wrap on 2022 sessions! I’m taking the rest of the year off to enjoy time with family. This year has been all about settling into our new house and building up business again, and I’m so grateful for every new client I’ve met. I’m so lucky to work with the cutest clients ever and I’m excited to meet many more in 2023! Happy New Year!
