Jovi & Knox’s newborn & sibling photos | Menifee photography

Newborn & sibling photos can be a challenge, but that’s also what makes them the most rewarding! In the case of Jovi & Knox, they were both incredibly sweet and so easy to photograph. I got to photograph Knox (Jovi’s big brother) almost 4 years ago, and it was so fun to get to see him again! He was “all grown up” and SO well behaved! Enjoy beautiful little Jovi and her perfect cheeks…she is so adorable!

Maverick’s Newborn Photos & Wild One Milestone Plan

I got to photograph this sweet boy’s first year before I moved to California, and I’m updating this blog post to reflect that I’m now a Newborn Photographer in Menifee CA.

Enjoy Maverick’s newborn photos! I was so excited to have him on my 3 month milestone plan and his momma chose to do a Wild One theme for his first year!

Best time for newborn photos {Beautiful Ava}

When is the best time for newborn photos? I’ve found that 5-10 days old is ideal, but if you’ve missed this window, contact me anyway! Babies under 2 weeks old tend to be more sleepy for photos, and their skin tends to be a little more calm. After birth, baby’s skin tends to break out, peel, or become red or jaundiced…but that’s ok! Experienced newborn photographers can work their editing magic to make your perfect baby’s skin look smoothe and perfect (unless you’d like to request having your baby’s skin left as is, of course).

Preemies often need a little more time before coming in for photos too. I’ve photographed newborns up to 8 weeks old, and although newborn photos under 2 weeks is recommended, it’s definitely not a deal-breaker.

Now on to showing off little Ava…what a beautiful baby! Her momma came with lots of fun ideas in mind for her newborn photos, and it was such a blast to get to capture them for her. And what a beautiful momma she is too! It’s always tough to come up with adequate words when the photos do a much better job to speak for themselves…

Lawson has the best squishy smiles & chubby cheeks!

Being a newborn photographer is the BEST, especially when I get to work with cuties like Lawson. He has the cutest smiles, chubbiest cheeks, and adorable pouty lips! I think he set a record for the most sleepy newborn smiles I’ve ever photographed. Newborn photos are extra fun with such a squishy sweet boy like him!

How to find a newborn photographer

How to find a newborn photographer

So you’re having a baby…congratulations! You may wonder: should I hire a newborn photographer? When should I hire a newborn photographer? How and where can I find a newborn photographer? A lot of these questions and answers can be found in my Frequently Asked Questions, and I am always happy to chat if you’d like to reach out and contact me to ask any further questions.

There are many things to consider, including:

  1. Budget: You can find newborn photographers in pretty much any budget, from a very low price point to thousands of dollars. This is a personal choice, so look around to find a photographer who fits your preferences.
  2. Style: It’s so important to look around and find a photographer that matches the style you love for your little one’s photoshoot. Your baby is a work of art, and your photographer wants you to be happy with the end results! Most photographers have their portfolio displayed online in galleries to display their work. Do you prefer light and airy? Dark and moody? Lifestyle? My style is light, airy, classic, and timeless — so reach out if you’d like to chat about booking your baby’s session with me!
  3. Location: Do you want to travel to your photographer’s newborn studio? How far are you willing to travel, or would you like to find someone close by? Would you prefer to find a photographer who will travel to your home? A good rule of thumb is to google your location + “newborn photographer” or “newborn photographers near me”.
  4. Products: Would you like digital photos? Prints? Albums? Find out what your potential photographers’ offer and the costs involved.
  5. Experience: Your baby’s safety should be of the utmost importance, so find out what your photographer’s experience with newborns is to make sure they understand how to keep your baby safe during their photoshoot.

So where should you look? The internet is full of ideas, from Google, to Facebook, Instagram, and even Tik Tok. Ask your family and friends for recommendations. I hope you’ll find the right photographer for you! If you’re looking for a newborn baby photographer in the Menifee, California area — I would love to chat!

Baby boy’s newborn session after his NICU stay

Baby T is the cutest little guy!

I’m playing catch-up whenever I can during this “break”. Of course, I use that term loosely — having kids home 24/7 keeps me plenty busy with their schoolwork, meals, cleaning, and repeat….all day every day. 😉 I’m still amazed at what good sports they are about being stuck at home for weeks.

Anyway…I loved getting to meet this absolutely beautiful family for baby T’s newborn photos! I have about a billion favorites from their gallery…enjoy!
