I’m Kelly, the one behind Kelly Petrovski Photography. I’m an Orange County family photographer based in San Juan Capistrano and I specialize in family, maternity, newborn photography.

I have a beautiful purpose built studio at my home in San Juan Capistrano, California. It’s the ideal space to create my natural, timeless newborn and baby portraits and is very easy to reach from San Clemente, Laguna Beach, Dana Point, Newport Beach and San Juan Capistrano.

Having two children of my own, I know how truly important baby photos are. I adore looking back at the baby photos of my two and seeing how tiny they once were. They change so much in the first year! *I’m not crying you’re crying!!*

Capturing the journey from pregnancy, to newborn and baby is just incredible and I’m so lucky to do what I love.

There is nothing more important to me than my people, my littles and creating something meaningful for others.

“Make it simple but significant”

"Kelly is an AMAZING photographer!!! She has a great eye, is super easy to work with and captured the most precious and perfect moments between my husband, my son and I. I would absolutely recommend Kelly!!"


My goal with every portrait session is to create timeless memories for your family. I know that we are in a digital age and many people want access to the digital files for archives and personal reprinting, but I also want to provide you with beautiful portrait art that you can share and look at for years to come. I have curated amazing professional vendors with products that match the style and timeless quality of your portraits. The portrait packages include a mix of digital files as well as classic fine art products that you will treasure forever. My own children love flipping through their baby albums and looking back on how tiny they were, how young mom and dad looked and how much they have grown over the years. 

“Kelly captured the most beautiful pictures of my family and I during my pregnancy and also of my newborn!! I would recommend her 110% for your photography needs....Love love love working with you and our pictures Kelly!!!”

“Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever… it remembers little things long after you have forgotten everything.”
– Aaron Siskind



As a mom of 4, I understand how important it is to capture these fleeting days. As they say, the days are long but the years are short. It goes by in the blink of an eye and before you know it they are these almost grown humans. I look back on the pictures I have of my own kids and I’m always drawn to the images that I try to capture for my clients. The unposed moments, the unique expressions and traits that you one day might forget, their personality that comes through even as a newborn. It’s all a part of your real story.

I look forward to meeting you and your family and helping to capture those priceless memories!
