Princess Leia’s Newborn Photos

What a fitting name for such a perfect little princess! Leia was a dream to photograph, both awake and asleep. At just over a week old, she kept staring straight at my camera when she was awake, but also slept for some of the sweetest sleepy shots. I also got to photograph her big sister and brother, and the three of them were so adorable together!

You’d never know from Leia’s sweet stare that newborns can actually only see clearly from about 8-15 inches away. They also are only awake for about 3 minutes per hour, on average. What an impressive little one! (Info cited from https://www.motherandbaby.co.uk/baby/baby-care/newborn-facts-trivia/)

My newborn sessions include the option to include parents, siblings, and/or family shots. I highly recommend including these shots for a variety of reasons, not the least of which include: showing off how tiny your newborn is in comparison to parents/siblings. And of course, showing the precious new relationships forming with your new baby!

Wyatt turned 6 months old! {Menifee Milestone Session}

I first got to meet Wyatt a few months ago when he was 3 months old, and I was excited to see how much he had grown in 3 short months! My milestone sessions are such a great way to document baby’s first year! It’s always such a treat for me to get to watch these precious babies grow. Wyatt was so smiley until he got worn out from all the hard work of being so photogenic. He let me know he was done with the camera in his face, haha! His session was packed with great portraits.

6 month development

What’s so special about 6 month milestones? So many things! I loved studying child development in college. According to WhatToExpect.Com, “at this age, babies typically sleep about 11 hours at night (many straight through) and take around two daily naps that add up to three to four hours.” This is also the time many babies start solids.

Sitter Sessions

The best part about 6 month milestones is that this is usually when babies start to sit up unsupported, which allows for a variety of fun photos! “Babies typically sit unsupported somewhere around the age of 6 to 6½ months old. But there’s a wide range of normal when it comes to when babies master the skill.” These extra special milestone sessions are called a “sitter session”. Sitter sessions usually take place around age 6 months, but sometimes up to 9 months old. Even if they need a little support, the cutest shots can happen!

The smiles, the (sometimes) wobbly seated shots, the sweet grabs for their feet, the chubby cheeks and chunky little hands and feet, and the little teeth poking through — it’s all so sweet to capture!

Luna’s Sitter Session

Sitter sessions are always some of my favorite sessions! What is a sitter session? It’s just as it sounds — a photoshoot to celebrate the milestone of babies learning to sit on their own! This typically takes place between 6-9 months. Luna was 8 months old at the time of her session and so much fun. She was sooooo wiggly and expressive!

Adorable baby Theo – {Menifee California photographer}

Theo was so much fun! I don’t get to photograph his age range often (he was just shy of 8 weeks), though I wish I did because it’s so fun and interesting to see how much babies change in those first 2 months. He was so expressive and aware of the camera!

New Menifee newborn photographer :)

Hi there! Although I’m new to Menifee, I’m definitely NOT new to newborn or baby photography! I’ve photographed hundreds of sweet babies over the past decade. It’s crazy to think how grown so many of those little ones are now (definitely not so little any more!).

I grew up mostly in Northern Utah near Salt Lake City, but I lived in Southern Utah in a beautiful town called St George for the last 12 years with my hubby and 3 kids. Moving has been a big adjustment, but I’m so excited to be here and can’t wait to meet new clients here in Southern California. I lived in California a long time ago when I was little, but my husband was born in Calabasas and grew up in SoCal. An opportunity opened up for us to move here, and we decided to take the leap. It felt like forever waiting for our new house to be built, and now that my studio is up and running all I wanna do is fill it with new clients! Whether you’re expecting or your little one has already arrived, contact me and let’s get your baby’s photos scheduled! I truly can’t wait to meet you.

Smith’s newborn and 6 month photos

Smith has the most captivating blue eyes! Getting to photograph him was like home away from home. I photographed his big sister as a newborn in Utah, then they moved to California, then I moved to California, and got to work with his beautiful family for his newborn and 6 month photos!
