Getting to meet this cute family and their new baby boy was such a treat! I love when siblings are old enough to hold their new sibling well because that means I can get a variety of sibling shots. Big sister was so adorably loving with her new baby brother.
These cute boys are my next door neighbors. What adorably sweet brothers and best friends! I loved Theo’s “One of a Kind” pajamas…such a great reminder that all of these sweet little ones are so unique and I’m so fortunate to capture their photos!
What a handsome little prince! Jacob’s newborn photos were extra special after getting to do his beautiful momma’s maternity photos a couple months ago! This beautiful family lives near me in Audie Murphy Ranch. They chose to make baby number three a surprise and Jacob made boy number three for them! And let me tell you, they are all the cutest, sweetest boys.
Talk about beautiful genes in this family! My son’s girlfriend sent her sister my way and it was so fun to meet them! What a beautiful momma and daughters Mia & Sunny, and handsome baby CJ. They traveled from Costa Mesa for little CJ’s newborn photoshoot. Enjoy the sweetness…
Cute little Eliam is a lucky little guy to be surrounded by so much love from his family. They drove from Loma Linda to have a special photoshoot with both sides of the family, including grandparents. At just three weeks old, Eliam was alert and expressive, making for an extra fun newborn photoshoot.
Looking for a Loma Linda California Newborn Photographer? Emily Menzie Photography is located less than an hour away in Menifee and serves clients throughout Southern California.
After moving to California a couple of years ago, starting from scratch with everything was daunting. One of the many professionals I had to find was a new hairstylist. Fortunately, I found Carmelita, who is not only super talented but always fun to chat with too. I was so excited when she asked me to photograph her sweet new baby boy, Marciano. He is a total dream baby! I’m so glad they made the drive from Escondido to my home studio in Menifee for his photos. As a newborn photographer, there is no greater honor than being entrusted with capturing a family’s newest addition. My goal is to create images that capture the essence of this special time in a family’s life. Every family is so special and I’m so glad I got to work this new little family!
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.
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!
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!
