When I was pregnant with my daughter, I was completely in awe of what the human body can accomplish. It was definitely a very special time in my life and capturing it before it became a distant memory is something I'm very thankful to have done. I generally suggest maternity portraits be taken some time during the 32nd to 36th week. Maternity sessions are done close to sunset and last about an hour. The location choice is your's to make - a nearby park, the beach, or a lovely field in the Palos Verdes hills. Partners as well as older siblings are always encouraged to participate. I would love the opportunity to preserve the beauty of your pregnancy in portraits and create memories for your family for years to come.
NEWBORN SESSIONSA newborn baby does not stay tiny for long! In my 10+ years as a newborn photographer, my goal is to help you document and remember those very early days with your new baby. This unique stage often flies by in a blur of sleepless nights, I want to help you to remember just how small your baby was. My newborn sessions take place in the safety and comfort of your home. I bring everything needed to create a boutique studio experience for your and your family. This means all swaddles, bonnets, headbands, tiny stuffed animals and props are provided. The best time to photograph baby for those curled up, sleepy poses, baby should be between 6-14 days after birth. This is typically when newborns are at their sleepiest. However, this definitely does not mean that after 16 days I can’t photograph your new baby! Often an “older” newborn can still be coaxed into a pose or two, so don’t despair. I have photographed “older” newborns with great success. No matter what, I will capture beautiful portraits of your baby. Finally, I take the health and safety of my clients very seriously. As we navigate through this new "normal", please be assured that I take every precaution to ensure that all of my props, swaddles and blankets are washed and sanitized after every session. I wear a mask and frequently sanitize my hands throughout the session. I will not hesitate to reschedule a session if I'm not feeling well and you may reschedule your session at any time without any consequences if you feel it is necessary.
