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.

Kamila turned 6 months old! | Beaumont baby photographer

Kamila is a natural in front of the camera, and I feel so lucky to have captured her at 2 months and 6 months old. Her eyes are so stunning and she is just as gorgeous as can be! At the time I’m finally getting around to writing about her 6 month photoshoot, she has actually turned 7 months old, but even though I’m late in writing this it’s always worth it to document adorable photos.

I feel so fortunate to work with clients from all over Southern California, including Menifee (where my studio is located), Murrieta, Temecula, San Diego, Orange County, Riverside, MoVal (Moreno Valley), Beaumont and beyond. If you’re looking to hire a baby photographer near you, please get in touch!

Amelia – 4 months old | Baby Milestone Package

I am thrilled to have Amelia on my Baby Milestone Package plan and I am looking forward to capturing her growth throughout her first year. She is such a happy and smiley baby and so absolutely beautiful!

If you are looking for a baby photographer, please don’t hesitate to contact me. I would love to customize a plan for your baby’s first year milestones and document their growth and development.
It’s truly amazing to see how much babies change during their first year. That’s why it’s so important to capture these moments in photographs. Not only do baby milestone photos make for timeless keepsakes, but they also allow you to hold onto memories that can seem fleeting as they pass. You’ll be grateful to have these memories to look back on as your little one continues to grow.

Lennon’s 1st Birthday Cake Smash | California Cake Smash Photographer

A year ago, I had the pleasure of meeting little beauty Lennon for her newborn photoshoot. Fast forward to last month, and I was thrilled to see her again for her first birthday cake smash photos. Time flies! Lennon has SO much personality and I loved watching her explore my studio, playing with the lights and balloons to her heart’s content. We ended the session with the cake smash and some cute baby tub shots.

A baby’s first birthday is a special milestone that deserves to be celebrated in a memorable way. One popular way to do this is through a cake smash photoshoot. If you’re looking for a cake smash photographer in Southern California, look no further than Emily Menzie Photography!

When you book a cake smash session with me, all you need to bring is the baby and the cake! You’re always welcome to bring your own outfits, headbands, and decor, but I have plenty of items to choose from for your baby’s cake smash: outfits, headbands, cake stands, cake toppers, banners and more.

Amilia’s adorable 2 month old baby photos

Amilia missed the chance to have a newborn photoshoot, but came in for 2 month old baby photos (almost 3 months)… it was such a fun age to photograph and she was full of smiles! She is such a beautiful baby and has the cutest family.

At 1-3 months old, babies are more awake and starting to recognize more of their surroundings, making it a great time to capture their expressions and family connections. While newborn photoshoots focus more on how small and precious the baby is, 1-3 month photoshoots capture the baby’s growing personality.

Zora | California Baby Photoshoot

Meet Zora, the cutest little beauty with the best cheeks and the sweetest smile. Capturing her baby rolls was an absolute blast! There’s something magical about photographing babies, especially when they’re as adorable as Zora. Check out her photos and contact me if you’d like to schedule a baby photoshoot for your little one! My home studio is located in Menifee and I serve clients throughout Southern California.

Willow | Pretty Baby

Meet Willow! Aren’t her eyes absolutely stunning?! What a pretty baby. As a baby photographer, I am constantly amazed by the little ones I get to work with. From newborns to toddlers, each child has their own unique qualities that make them special.

If you’re looking for a baby photographer, contact me and I’d love to chat! My home studio is based in Menifee, California, and I also in-home sessions for the surrounding areas.

Baby Enzo’s Balloon Garland

Enzo’s 9 month photoshoot was made even more special with the addition of some amazing balloons and event props. These unique decorations were provided by Enzo’s mom, who runs a balloon and event prop business in Southern California. The result was a fun and memorable photoshoot that perfectly captured Enzo’s personality!

Welcoming a new baby brother! | Baby on the way

Benny is going to be such a great big brother — how fun for this cute family to have a baby on the way! I loved how he showed off his baby brother’s ultrasound picture and talked about Spiderman… 4 year olds are a lot of fun! Not only do I specialize in baby photos, but I offer child sessions as well!

Penelope | 6 month old baby photoshoot

Getting to photograph 6 month olds never gets old! Especially with cuties like Penelope. She is absolutely beautiful and has the most amazing hair! She was such a joy for her 6 month old baby photoshoot.

As a baby photographer, I never get bored with photographing 6-month-olds. It’s such an extra fun baby phase. I had the pleasure of photographing the beautiful Penelope and her adorable personality. Not to mention: her amazing hair!!

At 6 months old, babies are going through many transitions, and capturing these milestones is priceless. When photographing babies at this age, it’s important to be quick to capture a range of emotions and expressions! My job is a blast!
