Menifee Newborn Baby Photographer

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!

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.

Baby girl is the prettiest preemie!

This sweet girl arrived a month early and we ended up having to reschedule due to jaundice. Once she was all better, we scheduled her photos and she was a total dream for her session! I’ve been so lucky to be able to photograph two of her three older siblings as newborns. Just like them, she is such a gorgeous baby and her momma is beautiful!

Sebastian’s extra special newborn photos

I feel so lucky to be able to do what I do, but sometimes I’m reminded just how special it is to be able to capture these sweet little ones! Adorable and oh-so-tiny Sebastian was long awaited for by his parents. He must have been excited too, because he arrived a month early! He weighed just around 5 pounds and is absolutely perfect. Enjoy this sweet little guy’s newborn photos…
