San Diego Baby Photography

Kellin 9 Days Old

Kellin was a dream baby to photograph.  She had perfect skin, a full head of gorgeous hair, and slept her entire studio newborn session.  She transitioned so well from pose to pose and only woke up to eat and then would go right back into her milk coma.  It doesn’t get much better than that!  Here are some of my favorite pictures from Kellin’s  newborn session in the studio.  Enjoy!

Family and sibling pictures are some of my favorites to photograph.  This family was so gorgeous and easy to work with.  These boys adore their little sister.

Love parent poses!  However, as we all know newborns are unpredictable!  If anyone would have seen the behind the scenes of this set up you would die!  Baby Kellin did her business on dad not once…. but three times!!! Dad was such a trooper about it and it payed off because this is my absolute favorite picture of Kellin and her dad from Kellin’s studio newborn session.

I love photography newborns but I also love photographing  babies.  I adore cake smashes for first birthdays.  They are so much fun and their little personalities really shine.  They are great sessions for capturing those moments of them digging into their first birthday cake.  Check out my section on babies and cake smash sessions here.

Esmeralda

Oh Sweet Esmeralda!  As a newborn baby photographer I get to cuddle these tiny babies every day, and let me tell you…this little girl was amazing for her newborn photo shoot!   Her family met me at the studio in North County San Diego.  We began her newborn session by wrapping her because she was wide awake, this girl didn’t want to miss a thing!  Even though she was awake she was so happy; I was even able to get some smiles from her!  We did several wrapped poses as well as some poses using props.  After lots of cuddles and a full tummy Esmeralda finally gave in and slept so well for me, I was able to capture quit a few set ups on the beanbag.  Esmeralda’s parents couldn’t have been any sweeter, I throughly enjoyed getting to know them and spending the morning with them.  Congratulations Danny and Claudia, Esmeralda is perfect in every way!

Darci Maternity Photoshoot

I loved so many pictures of this maternity photography session in the studio I wanted to share them all!  Here in San Diego we have gorgeous natural backdrops all around us, and although I do love shooting maternity sessions outdoors, I adore studio photography.  Photography maternity sessions in the studio are just so intimate, light and airy, and just have this elegant feeling that I love.

You guys, this couple!!!  Oh my goodness, aren’t they gorgeous?  And they were so sweet and cute with each other.  Scott is actually a very talented videographer and asked me ahead of time if he could create a video of Darci’s maternity and newborn photoshoot.  When I saw the video he made of Darci’s maternity session I was blown away.   He even captured the baby kicking at the end.  If you missed the video you can watch it here.  I can’t wait to meet the newest member of the family!  Here are some of my favorites from Darci’s maternity photoshoot.

One Year old Portraits and Cake Smash

One Year old Portraits and Cake Smash

Hunter is turning 1!

I had so much fun meeting the Williams family for Hunter’s One Year Portraits and Cake Smash Session!  I loved every second working with these three.  We just clicked right away, and the entire evening was a blast!  We started the session outdoors to get some pictures of the whole family in one of my favorite nature locations.  Hunter impressed me with his walking skills, more like running…he was fast!

We then went to the studio for Hunter’s Cake Smash part of his first birthday session.  Oh how I love Cake Smashes, they are my absolute favorite for first birthdays!  What better way to celebrate than letting your one year old get his first taste of cake!  It is a win win for everyone!  It was so much fun watching Hunter tear into his birthday cake, which by the way was made by his Grandmother.  How awesome is that?  She did such an incredible job on his “Where the Wild Things Are” themed cake.   Although it didn’t last very long on the awesome stump cake stand.  At one point Hunter tried to pick up the entire cake!  Happy first birthday Hunter!

The Importance of Safety During a Newborn Photo Shoot | San Diego Newborn Baby Photographer

newborn photo shoot san diego newborn safety posing newborn in moms arms

The Importance of Safety During a Newborn Photo Shoot

As a newborn photographer we get to cuddle, love on, and pose these precious beings that are only days old…and we get to call it our job!  How lucky are we?  Parents are hiring us to capture their newborn’s tiny fingers, perfect little nose, fuzzy little hairs, tiny feet and that delicate, perfectly soft skin.  It is such an honor to be chosen and trusted by parents with their most precious gift to create beautiful images capturing these details that will be cherished forever.  Documenting this time is a once in a lifetime opportunity as they change so dramatically after those first few weeks of birth. Since documenting these moments for parents is so important, safety must always be the number one priority.   It is important for photographers to get the training and knowledge before attempting to pose newborns.

Safety MUST be taken seriously with every newborn to earn your client’s trust and to assure them their new addition will be properly taken care of.  It is our responsibility to create a safe and secure environment for these tiny human beings.  Just as important is to continually communicate with parents so they know what to expect before, during, and after each session.  I send a preparation magazine to my clients before each session, which explains how the session will flow so they know exactly what to expect the morning they arrive at the studio.  During the course of your session explain your workflow and transitions, as well as tell them why you are doing what you are doing.  This keeps them informed and makes them feel more comfortable knowing their baby is in safe hands.

Some babies are more flexible than others.  You have to use common sense and NEVER force a baby into a pose.  For example, a baby that is breech is going to fold into a ‘taco’ pose much easier than a baby that is not breech.  Not all newborns can do that specific pose and a baby should never be forced to try.  A newborn is not strong enough to be able to hold their heads up by themselves.  Even if they are strong enough their heads must be supported to avoid injury to their neck.  If a parent requests a certain pose where they need their head supported like the ‘froggy pose’ you must do a composite.  Have a spotter holding the baby’s head in one shot and their wrists in a second shot.  These two pictures can then be composited in Photoshop by merging them together.  There are several YouTube videos to show you how to do a composite if you are not familiar with this technique.

A newborn should never be left unattended on the beanbag or in a prop.  If you do not have an assistant ask a parent to spot for you.  Parents love being involved and it gives them something to do.  This one is pretty much a no brainer, but glass props should never be used. There are so many things that can go wrong and since safety is our first priority, stay away from anything breakable or sharp.  If you are posing a newborn in a basket or bucket make sure you have their head supported.  I have found that newborn posing beans from Newborn Cloud work perfectly for this, and they are also great for beanbag posing.  If I am using a bucket for a prop and placing the baby in it, I always put a five-pound weight in the back of the bucket to even out the weight so that the bucket doesn’t tip.  Of course you will still want an assistant or parent next to the prop spotting them at all times.  While photographing newborns from above, always make sure you have your camera strap around your neck to avoid the possibility of your camera slipping. If a baby is uncomfortable during any pose, stop and move on to the next pose.  Moving quickly from pose to pose can disturb a baby and they can become very unsettled.  Take your time and use small gentle movements; this will help keep them stay settled during transitions.  Every baby is different, so you will have to read their cues and figure out what works for them.

newborn photo shoot baby photo shoot posing newborn girl in bucket with pink blanket

Although there are some amazing poses you see across media platforms, not all of them should be done.  It is our job to be in tune with each newborn and find ways to settle them.  One trick I love is placing a tranquil mat under my blankets on my newborn posing beanbag.  It is a pad that soothes babies by gently vibrating and mimicking the sounds and motions of the mother’s womb.  It is a miracle and newborns love it!

As newborn photographers we need to continue to educate ourselves so we can create beautiful pieces of art with the safety of newborns as the most important factor.  I have taken several workshops and will always continue to so.  I believe we should always continue to grow and never stagnate.  Below I have listed some photographers whose workshops I have taken and highly recommend.  Some offer both in person and online workshops.

Newborn Photography Studio Session | Hayden

Newborn Photography Studio Session

Hayden

newborn photography studio session carlsbad california baby portraits baby boy in basket

When Hayden’s mom Julie contacted me for a newborn studio session she was concerned that Hayden may be too old for a newborn session.  At the time Hayden was almost one month old.  I assured her that he was absolutely not too old.  It is possible to do older newborn sessions!  Typically newborn sessions are held within the first two weeks of birth.  This is when they are still really sleepy and their bones are still so soft, they are able to curl into those womb like newborn poses.  However, things happen and not all newborns are able to make it into the studio the first two weeks of birth.  Guess what? That is ok!

Older newborns will typically be swaddled during their session because they are more awake and alert.  Swaddling them gives them a sense of security.  This is where you get those wide-awake shots and parents love this!  Feeling the connection between newborns and their parents as they gaze into their eyes is so heart warming.  Although older newborns are more awake they still have their sleep time as well so I am able to get a mixture of both.  It is never too late to document your newborns life!

Hayden was one month old when he came to the studio for his baby portraits; we were able to capture a good mix of awake and sleepy shots.  Hayden was a wiggler and boy was he strong, but he loved being swaddled!  He also loved being held by his mom and dad, who were by the way, so incredibly sweet!  Congratulations Mo and Julie, Hayden is perfect in every way!  Here are some of my favorites from Hayden’s session.  Enjoy!

I had so much fun photographing baby Laila.  Laila was 11 days old and as cuddly as can be.  When her and her family came to the studio last week for their newborn family session, I feel in love immediately!    Big sis came for pictures and was just as cute as can be; she is going to be mom’s big helper for sure.  Grandma was here in Carlsbad visiting from South Carolina and you could just see the love and pride she had for her grandchildren and family.  I love when Grandparents come and join in on their grandchild’s newborn session.  Capturing them with their grandchildren when they are days old, so tiny in their arms, are memories that can never be replaced.

Laila was so good for me; we got a variety of poses and she didn’t hold back on those precious smiles, which are my absolute favorite pictures.  I look forward to watching this family grow.  Here are a few images from Laila’s newborn photo shoot.

Mommy & Me Mini Sessions | Talia Studio Session

 

Mommy & Me Mini Sessions are one of my favorite sessions to shoot and I love doing them right before mother’s Day to celebrate the beauty of Motherhood, but they really can be done any time of the year.  Moms are always so busy taking care of everyone else; they deserve to be pampered every now and then! Capturing the little moments between children and their moms is a priceless memory.  I love that moms can have these images to look back on those moments and remember themselves in that time.  Remembering the smell of their child, their laugh, the songs they sang in the car on the way to the studio, and the way they clung to you when they were tired.  I found this quote and it says it so perfectly.

“You will never have this day with your child again. Tomorrow they’ll be a little older than they were today. This day is a gift. Breathe and notice. Smell and touch them; study their faces and little feet and pay attention. Relish the charms of the present. Enjoy today, mama. It will be over before you know it.” -Jen Hatmaker

Talia, you are a beautiful mom and rocked your mommy and me studio session!  Have a wonderful Mother’s Day you deserve it!

Xia reached out to me a while back to schedule her beach maternity session.  We discussed everything from clothing to location and every detail in between.  Xai chose beautiful Windansea Beach in La Jolla and I was so excited!  I love this location and it is the perfect scenery to capture maternity pictures.  The smooth rocks, sand, and little coves create the prefect outdoor backdrop.  I met Xai and her family an hour before sunset and they could not have been sweeter.  After dealing with a water leak in their house and having to stay in a hotel, they somehow pulled it off and Xai looked gorgeous!  It was the perfect evening, the weather could not have been better and Xai was glowing!  Congratulations on baby number two!  Here are some of my favorite images from Xai’s beach maternity session.

Child Photography Session in California Poppy Field | Spring Portraits

Child Photography Session in California Poppy Field | Spring Portraits

Maya’s mom contacted me to get spring portraits taken as a surprise gift for her dad for Father’s Day.  This just completely melted my heart and I couldn’t think of a more perfect gift then pictures from your little girl.  When chatting with her mom she mentioned she wanted them in a poppy field. The week before I went out scouting and I found the perfect field full of California’s golden poppies. With California’s ‘super bloom’ still in full effect, I knew this was just the place to take her!

We started Maya’s photography session an hour before sunset and the light was magical!  Maya was such a natural in front of the camera.  She was obsessed with bugs and always looking for butterflies; she actually even found a few!  It was so much fun watching her explore and see her little face light up when she would find a new creature.

As many of you know, one of my favorite things about photography is getting to know my clients’ families, and I can already tell you I adore this family!  I thoroughly enjoyed getting to know Maya and her mom and as it turns out, her mom was a teacher prior to having kids just like me!

I can’t wait to hear what dads reaction is when he gets his Father’s Day gift. I think this just may be the best gift ever!

Here are some of my favorites from Maya’s child photography session.

San Diego Wildflowers | Flower Fields in San Diego

San Diego Wildflowers

Flower Fields in San Diego

The San Diego wildflowers are in full bloom!  San Diego is experiencing a super bloom this year in wildflowers thanks to the extreme rain we received over the winter. As a photographer this was exciting news! I jumped on the opportunity and set out on a scouting trip to find these flower fields in San Diego. No doubt that we live in the most beautiful place on earth! It is truly breathtaking. There is such a diverse display of wildflowers right now; including California Poppies, Sand Verbenas, and Ground Pinks among others that cover the rolling hillsides like blankets. Oh how I wish I had this display all year to photograph my clients. Unfortunately, these wildflowers will only be here for a few weeks so make sure to get out there and enjoy the beauty. If you are interested in scheduling a family, maternity, or child session to capture this amazing time of year, please reach out. We are truly spoiled to live in such a gorgeous area!

Luke 2 Weeks Old

I just love newborn sessions, everything about them, and this sweet little baby boy stole my heart.  When Luke came to the studio for his newborn session he was sound asleep.  We had to wake him so mom could feed him.  He quickly fell into a milk coma when his belly was full and we were able to get several family pictures as well as sibling poses with him and his big brother.  His big brother was so sweet with him, cuddling him and giving him lots of kisses.  There is no doubt this little boy will have big brother watching over him for years to come.  Mom fed him one more time and we were able to capture lots individual newborn pictures of him.   We started with beanbag poses and then we moved on to some prop shots.  He did such a good job!  Getting to know families during newborn sessions is one of the many reasons why I love them. This family was so sweet it was such a pleasure working with them.  Thank you for allowing me to capture your newborn pictures for your family!  Here are a few images from baby boy Luke’s newborn photography session.

Fishman Triplets

Three boys!  That’s right, this family welcomed not one, not two, but three boys to their family!  They already have a six year old (she actually just turned six today!) little girl who will be the best helper for mom and dad.  She already adores her brothers.  I absolutely love this family and feel so privileged to documents theses moments for them.  I was lucky enough to do moms maternity shoot a while back as well as a fresh 48 session for them in the hospital.  It is amazing how much these boys have grown just since their fresh 48 session!  I look forward to watching these boys grow along with their big sis.  Congratulations Fishman family, you are blessed beyond words!

San Diego Newborn Photographer

See tiny fingers and tiny toes,
Bright baby eyes, cute baby nose;
Hear baby gurgles and baby sighs,
As Mom and Dad sing lullabies.

Life is changed, but that’s okay;
It’s fun to spend glad hours each day,
Taking time for all the good
That comes along with parenthood.

dsc_0236-websiteI keep of variety of maternity gowns on hand in my client wardrobe that available for all expecting moms at no additional cost.  This gown is by Sew Trendy and looks so amazing on Bree!  Expecting moms have so much going already, I try to make their maternity session as easy as possible on them.  Having maternity gowns on hand allows them to concentrate on getting ready for the birth of their baby and takes the preparation work out of their session.  They can feel beautiful without spending a fortune on a maternity gown that they may only wear one time.

dsc_0254-websitedsc_0244-websiteThis sweet girls dress is made by Dollcake and is also available to my clients.  My client wardrobe is in my studio in North County San Diego.  New and expecting moms are welcome to come in and try gowns on during their pre-session consultation.

The great unknown,

an ocean away.

Goodbyes and hellos

all in one day.

 

Traveling dreamer,

searching for peace.

Freedom at last,

a hopeful release.

 

The journey continues,

new stories are made.

Free to feel joy,

chains of debt paid.

 

A story is written,

each day a new page.

Full speed ahead

into a new age.
