Amelia – 4 months old | Baby Milestone Package

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.

Lennon’s 1st Birthday Cake Smash | California Cake Smash Photographer

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!

When you book a cake smash session with me, all you need to bring is the baby and the cake! You’re always welcome to bring your own outfits, headbands, and decor, but I have plenty of items to choose from for your baby’s cake smash: outfits, headbands, cake stands, cake toppers, banners and more.

Baby Enzo’s Balloon Garland

Enzo’s 9 month photoshoot was made even more special with the addition of some amazing balloons and event props. These unique decorations were provided by Enzo’s mom, who runs a balloon and event prop business in Southern California. The result was a fun and memorable photoshoot that perfectly captured Enzo’s personality!

Penelope | 6 month old baby photoshoot

Getting to photograph 6 month olds never gets old! Especially with cuties like Penelope. She is absolutely beautiful and has the most amazing hair! She was such a joy for her 6 month old baby photoshoot.

As a baby photographer, I never get bored with photographing 6-month-olds. It’s such an extra fun baby phase. I had the pleasure of photographing the beautiful Penelope and her adorable personality. Not to mention: her amazing hair!!

At 6 months old, babies are going through many transitions, and capturing these milestones is priceless. When photographing babies at this age, it’s important to be quick to capture a range of emotions and expressions! My job is a blast!

Tangled 1st Birthday | Lake Elsinore Cake Smash Photographer

{ Emily Menzie Photography: Lake Elsinore Cake Smash Photographer } I had so much fun setting up for little beauty Camila’s 1st birthday cake smash session! Her upcoming birthday party will be a Tangled theme, so I wanted to incorporate some beautiful gold and lavender colors by making a balloon garland. Her momma wanted some family and parent shots, so we started off with some family photos, then got some sweet shots of little Camila showing off her pretty dress. She wasn’t very sure about her cake or the strange lady pointing a camera at her 🙂 but I hope she will have a blast celebrating her big day next week! I love personalizing each baby’s session according to their own personality and whatever parents would like to highlight their little one. First birthday sessions can include a cake (also known as a smash cake session or cake smash session) plus baby bath shots at the end (I have a few baby-sized tubs that are absolutely adorable), making these sweet sessions extra fun!

Babies only ever have ONE first birthday — make it extra special by scheduling a session with me! Check out the session options I offer and contact me to discuss your baby’s photos. I love meeting families from all over Southern California including Temecula, Murrieta, Menifee (where I’m located), Lake Elsinore, Riverside, San Diego and beyond — and I hope to meet you too!

Why invest in baby photos? Is it worth it to hire a newborn photographer?

Are newborn & baby photos worth it? Absolutely! See this post for more detail. Newborn and baby photos are a cherished 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!)

Emily Menzie specializes in classic & timeless newborn, infant, and child photography in Menifee and surrounding areas throughout Southern California including Murrieta, Temecula, Riverside County, San Diego, and Orange County.

Welcoming a second baby boy

I was so excited to get to photograph this sweet family’s second baby boy after working with them for their first son’s first year milestones. It was fun to see big brother as an almost-two-year-old, and his baby bro was SO alert and aware of my camera! I love getting eye contact in newborn photos!

Baby Z’s Rainbows and smiles

This beautiful baby girl has the most adorable smile!! I loved the rainbow arch her momma brought.

Leo the Lion’s newborn photos

Leo was the first baby in my brand new studio, and he made it absolutely perfect! He was so cooperative and adorable and I had such a blast with his session. Incorporating some fall shots was extra fun, and the lion outfit his momma brought was amazing. I got to photograph his big sister’s newborn photos a couple years before, and she had the most adorable lips and chubby cheeks too!
