Yailene’s 6 month photoshoot | Murrieta baby photographer

Beautiful little Yailene’s 6 month photoshoot was an absolute delight! I highly recommend a 6 month session to capture this extra sweet and happy stage during baby’s 1st year. Many babies have learned or are learning to sit up around this age (Yailene was a pro!) and at 6 months, a baby’s unique personality is shining through. It is such a fun, joyful age to capture.

I loved including family shots, and Yailene’s momma made excellent setup choices which highlighted Yailene’s cuteness perfectly. When booking a baby photoshoot with me, you have the freedom to customize every detail according to your vision. From wardrobe to backgrounds, I’m here to bring your ideas to life. The days are long but the years are short – schedule your baby’s photoshoot today!

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.

Amelia’s Boho Cake Smash

Amelia’s first birthday photoshoot was a bit of a boho cake smash with lots of neutrals and earthy tones, and of course an overload of cuteness. Her momma had contacted me several months in advance to book Amelia’s very special 1st birthday session and I was so excited to finally meet this beautiful family! As it often goes with little ones, we never quite know what we’re going to get. I let them take the lead and snapped away. There were some tears, but also lots of the cutest smiles. We started off with family photos, then gave Amelia’s big brothers a break while capturing some parents & baby shots. I cycled through some of my cutest outfits and headbands to add to the variety, then completed her 1st birthday photos with a cake smash and some tub time. After a session packed with a little bit of everything, I hope I captured a gallery her family will cherish forever.

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).

Raelynn’s Sitter Session | 8 month old baby photos

A sitter session is an extra fun and extra cute photoshoot typically for 6-9 month old babies, so it was a perfect time for 8 month old baby photos for Raelynn. This phase is such a blast because babies are full of personality, can typically sit up well on their own (and of course crawling is often right around the corner, if not already started). Cutie Raelynn was just shy of 8 months old for her photoshoot and what an adorable baby model she is! I loved her cute pigtails and big brown eyes…not to mention her captivating smile! She smiled and clapped her way through some of the cutest photos ever and made the whole session such a breeze.

Viviana is 3 months old! | Mommy and Me Photos

Getting to photograph Viviana for her 3 month photos was such a treat after getting to capture her newborn photos a few months ago! Honestly, I couldn’t believe it when her momma told me she had just turned 3 months old. It felt like it was just yesterday that I got to meet her beautiful family for her newborn photoshoot. I think as I’m posting this, she actually just turned 4 months old, but I’m catching up on blogging this week and time keeps marching on as all these little ones keep growing!


With Mother’s Day less than a couple months away, I have Mommy and Me photos on my mind and I absolutely loved including lots of mommy-and-me shots in Viviana’s session! My sessions are fully customizable to choose the photos, shots and groupings clients want. I highly encourage moms to join in the photos with their little ones! I can’t emphasize enough how precious these photos will be for you and your child for years to come.

I also encourage baby milestone sessions! There is nothing sweeter than watching a baby grow and develop their personality. Viviana of course has the sweetest personality and is as beautiful as can be.

Mia’s 1st birthday photoshoot

Mia’s 1st birthday photoshoot exceeded my expectations, which is not surprising because she is an absolutely adorable baby. When her momma reached out to schedule her first birthday photos, I was so excited to see how much she had grown since her newborn session last year. Her mom warned me that she tends to be very scared of strangers (super common for babies and toddlers), and was hoping to get at least a few smiles and not too many tears. I set up my studio, put out all of my favorite extra cute 1st birthday items and props, and hoped for the best. Mia did not disappoint! In fact she was all smiles and personality and oh-so-very-cute!

I started off with some sweet portraits, then moved on to get some candid shots of Mia playing. She loved playing with my chair (it’s the perfect size for babies, and they love it) and showing off her standing skills. We ended the session with a cake smash, which is of course always a fun highlight for first birthday photos!

I always love doing first birthday photos and this session was one of my favorites to date! Now to show off so many favorites from this brown-eyed beauty…

Benjamin is turning one | Menifee 1st Birthday photoshoot

Handsome little Benjamin is turning one! His 1st birthday photoshoot was filled with smiles and so much personality! I got to capture his portraits, birthday outfit photos, and some Toy Story themed photos for his birthday party. I always love meeting new clients, and meeting Benjamin and his momma was extra special because I learned they live in my neighborhood.

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.
