Motherhood Sessions | Maternity, Newborn, Child photography Orange County CA

I have been wanting to do Motherhood mini sessions, I love this for me and my children and I love the idea of photographing mothers and their children.  Children can be in your belly still, newborns, babies, toddlers, let’s be honest they are always our babies right?  So if you have a tween or teen or full grown adult … everyone is welcome to capture the special bond you share with your child. Grandmas are welcome too!

I am going to be announcing a few dates soon to take place in the weeks leading up to Mothers Day with a couple different packages that will be offered.  In the meantime… Today is Valentine’s Day and I thought it was a great day to spread some love and post a Giveaway for one of these Motherhood sessions.

If you would like to go ahead and book your Motherhood Session please email me at and we will include a complimentary image for booking before 04-01-16!

Maternity and Newborn Photography Los Angeles CA | Baby Harvey

I know there is so much to consider and get done before your baby arrives… Photos are a must on the list, I offer both Maternity and Newborn photo sessions individually but I also offer them as a “Belly to Baby Bundle”. This way you can book them together, you save a little on cost and you don’t have to remember to book once baby arrives, which can be last minute and there may be no availability. In this post I want to show you what you end up with when you book a Belly to Baby bundle. Let’s start with the maternity session… Every maternity session highlights mommy and her baby bump of course…

Dad is also encouraged to participate…


Even your fur baby is welcome to join in on the maternity session…




If you want to bring something of the babies, I love to incoorporate whatever is special to you…



A maternity session is a great way to get to know eachother a little bit before I photograph your baby… Leaving you feeling extra comfortable with me and the process.

A few weeks later you call me when baby arrives… In this case his name is “Harvey”…


Can you believe he wasn’t the only newborn “Harvey” I photographed this year! How cute is he?


Lots of photos of the baby alone… and then with each parent and both parents…




Baby Harvey was perfect for his Newborn session, I can’t wait to photograph him again soon…. that is another post to talk about my “Babies First Year Bundle”.

Newborn Session | Los Angeles Newborn Photography CA

This session took place in the clients home, it is something that I offer for an added fee and the reason is because it is a lot more time and work for me to pack up, travel, set up, take down, pack up again, travel back and unpack. Most clients do decide to travel to me because they like the idea of me having every prop available to me and all they have to do is bring the baby. It isn’t without any stress I’m sure because it is usually only their first or second time out with their new baby. I send out a checklist of helpful suggestions and tips for the session to better prepare the parents. However, In this case mom had a rough recovery and they opted for me to come to them. I set up by the best window in the house and went to work. I was happy with the newborn session. I only ask that their is a clean available space at least 6×6 area by a nice big window with good light.




A little fall a little Christmas…

And the lovely parents…
