Why invest in baby photos?

newborn photography near me

Newborn and baby photos are truly an 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!)

Princess Leia’s Newborn Photos

What a fitting name for such a perfect little princess! Leia was a dream to photograph, both awake and asleep. At just over a week old, she kept staring straight at my camera when she was awake, but also slept for some of the sweetest sleepy shots. I also got to photograph her big sister and brother, and the three of them were so adorable together!

You’d never know from Leia’s sweet stare that newborns can actually only see clearly from about 8-15 inches away. They also are only awake for about 3 minutes per hour, on average. What an impressive little one! (Info cited from https://www.motherandbaby.co.uk/baby/baby-care/newborn-facts-trivia/)

My newborn sessions include the option to include parents, siblings, and/or family shots. I highly recommend including these shots for a variety of reasons, not the least of which include: showing off how tiny your newborn is in comparison to parents/siblings. And of course, showing the precious new relationships forming with your new baby!

Wyatt’s 6 Month Baby Photos

I first got to meet Wyatt a few months ago when he was 3 months old, and I was excited to see how much he had grown in 3 short months! My milestone sessions are such a great way to document baby’s first year! It’s always such a treat for me to get to watch these precious babies grow. Wyatt was so smiley until he got worn out from all the hard work of being so photogenic. He let me know he was done with the camera in his face, haha! His session was packed with great portraits.

6 month development

What’s so special about 6 month milestones? So many things! I loved studying child development in college. According to WhatToExpect.Com, “at this age, babies typically sleep about 11 hours at night (many straight through) and take around two daily naps that add up to three to four hours.” This is also the time many babies start solids.

Sitter Sessions

The best part about 6 month milestones is that this is usually when babies start to sit up unsupported, which allows for a variety of fun photos! “Babies typically sit unsupported somewhere around the age of 6 to 6½ months old. But there’s a wide range of normal when it comes to when babies master the skill.” These extra special milestone sessions are called a “sitter session”. Sitter sessions usually take place around age 6 months, but sometimes up to 9 months old. Even if they need a little support, the cutest shots can happen!

The smiles, the (sometimes) wobbly seated shots, the sweet grabs for their feet, the chubby cheeks and chunky little hands and feet, and the little teeth poking through — it’s all so sweet to capture!

Graham is the cutest little guy!

Graham is as sweet as he is adorable! It was such a treat to photograph him and his beautiful little family! I was so excited when his mom messaged me when she was looking for a newborn photographer around Temecula. I hope to get to see them all again next year for his one year photos!

Kinsley turned one! Cake Smash Photos

I normally only do in-studio or indoor sessions, but my niece nannies for this family so I made a special exception. 😉 This park was gorgeous and I need to go back to explore soon! Kinsley was an absolute doll and she was a big fan of her cake frosting. Cake smash sessions are always such a blast!

Zion’s Newborn Session (Menifee, California)

Zion was so handsome and sweet for his newborn session!

Kiara’s 8 month photos {Menifee baby photographer

Kiara was such a perfect little baby model! Don’t let her big brown eyes and long hair fool you, she was still so teeny. 8 month olds are still in the perfect window for a “sitter session”, which typically falls between 6-9 months old when babies are able to sit on their own and extra expressive.

Luna’s Sitter Session

Sitter sessions are always some of my favorite sessions! What is a sitter session? It’s just as it sounds — a photoshoot to celebrate the milestone of babies learning to sit on their own! This typically takes place between 6-9 months. Luna was 8 months old at the time of her session and so much fun. She was sooooo wiggly and expressive!

Adorable baby Theo | Menifee California photographer

Theo was so much fun! I don’t get to photograph his age range often (he was just shy of 8 weeks), though I wish I did because it’s so fun and interesting to see how much babies change in those first 2 months. He was so expressive and aware of the camera!
