You want to capture every treasured moment of your new little one and freeze it forever!  I love capturing those first few days when your baby is fresh and squishy.  Because in the blink of an eye, those tiny toes, sleepy smiles and that soft baby skin will be gone.  I want to capture them for you in beautiful images that you can look back on forever. 

Newborn sessions are best done when baby is between five to fourteen days old.  This is to insure that your baby is still in the super sleepy stage, and will allow for better images.  However, I don't ever turn anyone away!  I will work to give you beautiful images no matter the age!  

All Newborn sessions are baby led - your babies physiology and personality will determine what poses we get and how long the shoot is.  I watch baby at all times to make sure they are comfortable and happy during the shoot.  

Your session will include use of my props, outfits and accessories for mom and baby.  I do have a few sibling dresses.  You are welcome to look through and start choosing props and outfits at your consultation.

I suggest booking 8-10 weeks in advance to insure availability.  I take only a handful of babies to make sure I can get everyone in within 2 weeks of birth.  A retainer of $150 is due at time of booking.  

I soft book your due date at the time of booking and schedule your session date when baby arrives.   

All sessions are held in my studio located in Rancho Santa Margarita, in South Orange County
