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.

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.
I had the opportunity to capture Harper just a day before she turned one! 1 year cake smash photos are always a blast. She seemed to love her cake smash, and her cute smiles shone through and made for some adorable shots.
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!

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.
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!

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.
Sitter sessions are always some of my favorite photos to capture! 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!

Wyatt was SO expressive for his photos — what a cutie! 5 weeks-5 months tends to be more tricky when it comes to photographing babies, as they tend to wear out a bit faster. Wyatt turned 3 months old on the day of his session and he came in like a little firework, full of expression until he burned out. 😉 He was such a good sport for his photos. I’m so excited that he’s on my 3 month milestone plan!
