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…

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!

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.

Birthday Photographer | Moreno Valley Cake Smash

Avraj’s momma was looking for a birthday photographer for a fun cake smash photoshoot. She found me over on Thumbtack – I’m always intrigued to hear how people find my work and my website. I absolutely loved the style she requested for her little guy’s 1st birthday session. We started off with family photos, along with mom/baby and dad/baby shots (I highly encourage parents to be in the photos with their little ones!), captured some sweet portraits (I always try to get some great portrait photos — I think they’re the most important part of any photoshoot), snapped some fun “explorer” shots for his adventure themed birthday party, and ended with the cake smash. I loved his neutral cake smash with some pops of color from the greenery and balloons. Avraj was a total delight for his photoshoot — he was adorably expressive and smiled and clapped through the entire session. I hope he had a wonderful first birthday! I can only imagine it was extra fun with his fun-loving personality!

January birthday photoshoot

Beauties Gabriella and Kamila both have January birthdays, so we celebrated with a little January birthday photoshoot! Sibling photos are always so much fun. I first met these adorable sisters last year for Kamila’s newborn session. One of my greatest joys being a baby photographer is getting to see my newborn clients come back for their 1st birthday session (usually with a cake smash, as was the case with Kamila’s photo session). Check out this fun comparison…

newborn vs 1st birthday

It was Kamila’s actual birthday on the day of her photoshoot, and she decided it was her party and she would cry if she wanted to! She wasn’t my biggest fan that day, but she sure is adorable even through all the tears. I loved getting some comparison shots to her newborn session last year, and I was able to capture some portraits of her and big sister Gabriella too.

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.

Tukáamawish | Southern California Cake Smash Photographer

Meeting Tukáamawish and his parents was such a treat! He is such a handsome little guy with the coolest name. I loved the photo collage his momma brought (I would love to do this on a larger scale more often) commemorating and celebrating his first year of life. We ended the session with a cake smash and he decided to use the cake topper as a spoon — so clever and funny!
