It’s a girl | All about newborn photos

It’s a girl for this absolutely beautiful family, and they came all the way from the Irvine area for their new baby’s photos! Big brother was so cooperative and full of smiles (not always an easy feat with a two year old and a newborn!). I couldn’t believe how gorgeous baby girl’s eyelashes are! Try to spot her adorable dimple too… so sweet!

The Importance of Hiring a Newborn Photographer
Welcoming a new baby is a momentous occasion filled with joy, love, and precious moments that pass all too quickly. While it may be tempting to rely on smartphone snapshots or amateur photography, hiring a professional newborn photographer can make a world of difference in preserving these fleeting memories. Here’s why investing in a professional newborn photographer is so important:
Safety First
The safety of your newborn is paramount, and professional newborn photographers will handle and pose babies with the utmost care. They understand how to achieve those adorable poses safely. This expertise ensures that your baby remains comfortable and secure throughout the entire session.
Expertise and Experience
Newborn photography is a specialized field that requires specific skills and knowledge. Professional photographers have invested time and resources into mastering the art of capturing newborns, including:
Soothing techniques to keep babies calm
Proper lighting and composition
Posing that flatters newborns
Attention to tiny details that make each image special
This expertise allows them to consistently produce high-quality images that match their portfolio, giving you confidence in the final result.
Time-Sensitive Opportunity
The newborn stage is incredibly brief. Professional photographers understand the importance of timing and can capture those sleepy, curly poses that are characteristic of brand-new babies. By hiring an expert, you ensure that these fleeting moments are preserved before they pass.
Professional Equipment and Props
When you hire a newborn photographer, you gain access to their arsenal of professional-grade equipment, including:
High-quality cameras and lenses
Specialized lighting setups
A variety of props, outfits, and accessories
This eliminates the need for you to invest in or source these items yourself, allowing you to focus on enjoying the experience.
Editing Expertise
Professional newborn photographers possess advanced editing skills to address common newborn skin issues such as jaundice, flaky skin, or baby acne. They can enhance images while maintaining a natural look, ensuring that your baby’s photos are both beautiful and authentic.
Peace of Mind
As new parents, you have enough on your plate. Hiring a professional newborn photographer provides peace of mind, allowing you to relax and enjoy this special time. You can trust that an experienced photographer will handle everything from posing to lighting, resulting in stunning images that you’ll cherish for a lifetime.
A Worthwhile Investment
While it may seem like an added expense, hiring a professional newborn photographer is an investment in preserving precious memories. These images will become family heirlooms, allowing you to relive those early days and share them with your child as they grow older.
The importance of hiring a newborn photographer cannot be overstated. Their expertise in safety, posing, lighting, and editing, combined with their professional equipment and props, ensures that you’ll receive beautiful, high-quality images that capture the essence of your newborn. These photographs will serve as timeless reminders of this fleeting and magical period in your family’s life.

Kennedy’s 1st birthday cake smash

Kennedy’s 1st birthday cake smash was full of her gorgeous smiles and beautiful brown eyes! She was so happy and joyful through every moment, even with a bit of a mishap with the cake at the end. Her personality is every bit as beautiful as she is, and I loved meeting her and her parents.

1st Birthday Cake Smash Photography

Cake smash photography is such a special way to celebrate a baby’s first birthday! A lot of families love to display these photos at their baby’s first birthday party, or simply as a way to commemorate this precious milestone.

A typical cake smash photo session consists of:

  • Pre-cake portraits: I love to capture baby’s portraits and personality and do a few different setups before bringing out the cake!
  • Cake smash: The main event where the baby gets to dig in to the cake! Some babies absolutely love it while others are more timid, but that’s the beauty of every session…getting to see baby’s personalities and curiosity shine through!
  • Clean-up: This can include some cute photos with baby playing in a little tub — babies usually love this part the most!

When planning a cake smash session, consider the following tips:

  • Choose a theme or color scheme that complements your baby’s personality or birthday party decor.
  • I recommend light or white cakes with whipped cream frosting or “naked” frosting. Buttercream tends to be a bit sticky and difficult for babies to swallow.
  • Be prepared for mess! Bring extra clothes for both the baby and yourself.

I have a variety of outfits, headbands, banners, cake stands, cake toppers, and balloons, and clients are always welcome to bring anything to make their session unique. Personally, I prefer to keep things simple to truly focus on the baby, but I’m always happy to discuss client’s wishes for their baby’s first birthday photos! After all, babies only turn one once…make it special with a 1st birthday photoshoot!

Viviana’s 6 month photos

I’ve had the privilege of capturing Viviana’s growth from newborn, to 3 months, to 6 months old. It has been a blast to document these precious milestones for her family. Her 6 month session was an extra quick session, and she packed it full with her adorable personality and expressions. I’m behind on blogging as I write this and it has already been over a month since her 6 month session so I guess she’s just over 7 months old now — time flies way too fast!

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 backgrounds to baby’s wardrobe, I’m here to bring your ideas to life.

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).

In-studio Family Photos

As a photographer specializing in baby and newborn portraits, one of my greatest joys is capturing the love and connection between families. That’s why I always encourage clients to consider including family photos when booking their baby’s photoshoot session. I love doing in-studio family photos!
Recently, I had the pleasure of photographing my neighbors – the BEST family who welcomed a new addition a little over 6 months ago (check out his newborn photos here). During this session, I got to capture photos of the entire family together, brother photos, as well as individual portraits of baby Theo and big brother Benny.
If you’re considering booking a photoshoot for your baby, I highly recommend including family portraits. After all, having a new baby is a momentous time for the whole family to celebrate.
Book your session today, and let’s create cherished photos together!

Malia and McCoy’s 1st birthday | Twins Cake Smash Photos

What a fun experience it was to capture Malia and McCoy’s first birthday photos! Twins cake smash photos are truly double the fun. Malia is such a beautiful baby girl and McCoy is so cute with his big brown eyes. Their big brothers got to sneak in for some sibling photos too.

Capturing 1st birthday milestones is my jam! If you’re looking for a baby photographer in the Menifee area, from newborn to 1st birthday and everything in between, please reach out! I can’t wait to chat and capture some photos I hope you’ll treasure.

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.

Please don’t hesitate to reach out to discuss the details and start planning your perfect photoshoot.

Newborn to 6 month photos | Southern California Baby Photographer

As a baby photographer, I’ve always been passionate about preserving the precious milestones during baby’s first year. Recently, I’ve introduced a complimentary mini 6 month session as a gift after newborn sessions. I had the pleasure of meeting this sweet boy for his newborn photos and I’m so glad his momma brought him back for 6 month photos! I loved to see how much he has grown and developed over the past few months, from sitting up to smiling with his new little teeth!

The first year passes by in the blink of an eye, and having tangible memories to look back on can be truly priceless. That’s why I’m so excited to offer this complimentary mini session to my newborn clients – to capture the incredible transformation that happens in those first sweet months of life.

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?!”.
