Zoey’s Newborn Photoshoot | Perris Newborn Photographer

Zoey’s newborn photoshoot took place when she was just 12 days new. We had envisioned capturing lots of sweet sleepy photos, but this little one had other plans. Zoey was determined to soak in every moment, and seemed to know how adorable she is as she stared intently into my camera. She is such a photogenic baby girl!
If you’re looking for a newborn photographer in the Perris area, my home studio is located in Menifee and I serve clients throughout Southern California. In-home sessions are always available upon request too (travel fees may apply depending on distance).

Chidike’s In-Home Newborn Photos

I had the pleasure of capturing adorable Chidike’s in-home newborn photos in his family’s beautiful newly built house in Hemet, California. Chidike was just 7 days old at the time of his photoshoot, and he was absolutely perfect. While I primarily do most of my sessions in my home studio in Menifee, I also offer in-home sessions upon request, with additional travel fees depending on the distance.

The Convenience of In-Home Newborn Photography

One of the many benefits of offering in-home photography sessions is the convenience it provides for new parents. Families can enjoy the comfort and familiarity of their own home during the photoshoot. This can be especially helpful for families with other young children.

Preserving Precious Memories

Newborn photography is a cherished tradition that allows families to capture the fleeting moments of their little one’s earliest days. By offering both studio and in-home sessions, I strive to provide my clients with the flexibility and convenience they need to preserve these precious memories in a way that best suits their needs and preferences. If you’re expecting a little one and would like to schedule a newborn photography session, whether in my Menifee studio or in the comfort of your own home, I would be honored to work with you. Please don’t hesitate to reach out to discuss the details and start planning your perfect photoshoot.

Asher | Newborn Preemie Photographer

As a newborn photographer, I’ve had the privilege of working with preemies to overdue babies and everything in between, from the tiniest 4 pound little ones and even a whopping 11 pounder! There is something extra special about photographing premature babies like little Asher. I was so glad his momma reached out to me from Murrieta when she was looking for a newborn preemie photographer.


Preemies like Asher are little fighters from the moment they enter this world. Asher made his early arrival at just 33 weeks and spent his first month in the NICU. At the time of his newborn session, he was a little over a month old, but still hadn’t even reached his due date! This tiny guy was the epitome of newborn sweetness. He still instinctively curled up as newborns often do, mimicking how they would curl up in their cozy womb.


If you’re expecting a new baby in the Menifee area, I would love to be the one to capture their first newborn portraits. Preemies, older newborns, and babies of every size are always welcome in my studio. Reach out today to get on my calendar – those first newborn days are so fleeting!

D’Angelo 4 days new | Perris Newborn Photographer

Sweet little D’Angelo was just 4 days new at the time of his newborn photoshoot. As you might notice, there’s a certain pose in his gallery I don’t usually do because I normally do more baby-led posing, while this pose is a composite. His momma specifically requested it, and she knew how to assist me in capturing it safely, and I must say it turned out so adorable! I also loved the blues and greens his momma requested, which changed things up from my typical white and neutral backgrounds. The bold navy was an especially nice color for D’Angelo! His daddy was wearing a Dodgers jersey to the session and I knew it would be a favorite color for them. D’Angelo did so well and I laughed when he suddenly opened his eyes and looked at me like “ok I’ve been really good, are you done yet?!”.

Beautiful Victoria | Family photos with a newborn

As I write this, I have “Victoria” by the Kinks stuck in my head, specifically the scene from How I Met Your Mother where Ted meets Victoria. If you don’t know what I’m talking about, you’re missing out (I love that show and have watched it many times, with and without my kids and husband who also love it). Anyway, steering away from a complete tangent and moving on to beautiful little Victoria’s newborn photos! I loved meeting her beautiful new little family. I strongly recommend doing family photos with a newborn photoshoot. These are photos I hope my clients will always treasure. In every session, and with every newborn photography package, I have clients fill out a questionnaire to let me know what photos they are hoping for. This includes allowing to capture family photos with baby, mom and baby, dad and baby, and sibling and baby shots (if baby has a sibling, of course).

Is my baby too old for newborn photos? Older Newborn Session

“Older Newborn Session” is a bit contradictory because babies are brand new! While newborn photos are typically done under 2 weeks old, I’ve done newborn photos up to 8 weeks old or so. Beautiful Mía was 5 weeks old at the time of her session, and if you’ve wondered “is my baby too old for newborn photos?” Mía is here to show you that any age is the perfect age for a baby photoshoot! She is absolutely stunning. I had so much fun getting to photograph this beautiful baby girl! One of the best things about doing newborn photos a little later is getting to capture some sweet portraits, eye contact, and emerging personality.

Sienna’s 3 Week Photos | Local Newborn Photographer

Enjoy sweet little Sienna’s newborn photos by Emily Menzie Photography, your local newborn photographer ! 🙂 Sienna was 3 weeks old at the time of her photoshoot, and she was so teeny tiny and sleepy. This allowed for so many sweet photos during her mini newborn photoshoot. I loved adding some touches of lace and flowers to her photos, and of course the most beautiful element of all is her!

Newborn Twins | Cade and Elaina

Newborn twins … need I say more?!? Cade and Elaina are absolutely perfect and were so fun to photograph! They were born about 5 weeks early via emergency C-section, and then their momma ended up back in the hospital for a bit after their birth… these are just some of the hurdles this sweet and beautiful family overcame to make this session extra special. It means so much to me to be able to work with these amazing families and their much-anticipated little ones.

Gorgeous Viviana’s Newborn Photos

Enjoy gorgeous Vivian’s newborn photos….I LOVED this session! This year has been full of sweet newborn boys so it had been quite a while since I had a newborn girl in my studio. Viviana is absolutely beautiful and her family is too! I had so much fun incorporating lots of girly setups and capturing this adorable baby girl’s cuteness.

New baby boy | Menifee Newborn Photographer

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.
