The opportunity to capture new life and to celebrate such a momentous occasion in your family’s life is an amazing thing. Newborns are best photographed 6-14 days old in order to attain those sleeping, curled up shots. These sessions are never rushed and allow for comforting and feeding. Newborn sessions take place in my beautiful home studio in San Juan Capistrano. To help to create timeless images, I like to keep props to a minimum.

I recommend that your newborn session be booked during your pregnancy to secure your place, as i can book out in the busy seasons.

FAQ

My natural light residential studio is located in San Juan Capistrano. I cover San Clemente, Dana Point, Laguna Beach and Ladera Ranch areas. If you prefer an in-home lifestyle session, I will bring a selection of blankets and wraps to your home in the the Southern Orange County Area. Lifestyle sessions are available within a 30 mile radius of 92675 Southern Orange County Area. Travel fees apply for other areas.
Ideal time for your newborn portraits is 6-14 days after delivery. At this point they are the most curly and sleepy and we can still capture all of those perfect newborn parts that they quickly grow out of like the little hairs on their backs or ears, the fresh wrinkly fingers and toes, or even their cord stump. Most of the images you see in my portfolio galleries have been taken during this time, but it isn’t impossible to photograph older babies. Contact me ASAP for best scheduling. Babies do not come on time, so I typically pencil in your due date and once baby is born, we will nail down a date for your session.
Newborn sessions usually take up 2-3 hours.
I do have a supply of wraps, hats, and coordinating blankets. My style is neutral and baby focused.
The most beautiful and rewarding aspect of my job is that I get to discover all the little unique qualities of your baby, loving on every wrinkle and yawn as they snuggle into a cuddle with the parents, the family, that has been awaiting their arrival. Just as every baby is unique, so is every family. It brings me immense joy to capture you as you are, in love, unique, and beautifully whole. It is such an honor to be trusted with your family. All are welcome here.
Yes! Your baby is a new part of your family and your family will be included in the “The Simple and The Grand” portrait packages. It does extend session time, but I liked to give everyone their time in front of the camera. I like to keep the sibling and family shots relaxed but guided and less posed than a typical portrait studio.
Newborns are generally very sleepy in the first few weeks. Well fed and clean babies are happy babies. I do keep the studio warm and cozy. No one likes to be cold when they don’t have clothes on! I do a lot of swaying, swaddling and shhhing. Bring a pacifier even if your baby doesn’t tend to like it. Sometimes they just need a little to soothe.
