San Diego Newborn Photographer

They're only this little for a little while.

For families looking for clean, timeless portraits and heirlooms as well as an experienced San Diego newborn photographer with years of newborn handling and safety experience, this is the place for you.

There is nothing like meeting your child for the first time. 

I can't even begin to describe the feeling of holding them in your arms. The sweet newborn smell. Their soft skin, tiny fingers and delicate little toes. It's amazing how quickly they change, almost before your eyes. Newborns always have a special place in my heart. I love providing the sweet families who hire me with timeless images of their precious baby. Before you know it they move into the next diaper size. They sleep through the night. They start kindergarten and all of the sudden they are off on their own. It's amazing and heartbreaking all at the same time. As a San Diego newborn photographer, I'd love to freeze these fleeting moments for you!

Newborn Favorites

Newborns are so tiny in those first few days after birth. With the sleepless nights and whirlwind of emotions, that itty-bitty stage seems to pass by in seconds. A newborn photography session is the perfect way to capture your tiny miracle in this special time before you blink and they have changed. I still look at the newborn photos of all of my children and wonder where the time went.

The newborn stage is profoundly fleeting, a precious window that captures the essence of new life and boundless possibilities. Each moment is a rapidly disappearing whisper of time, making it important to preserve these early memories that will soon blur in the rush of growing up.

As a San Diego newborn photographer, I am dedicated to capturing the soft, serene beauty of your newborn in photographs that speak volumes of love, warmth, and the miraculous beginning of a new life.

Newborns change almost daily, and each portrait session aims to capture the delicate details—the wispy hair, the tiny toes, the soft, sleepy poses—that define the earliest days of life. Through my lens, I craft images that not only capture the innocence and peaceful expressions of your newborn but also embody the emotional depth and connection of your family. My approach is gentle and tailored, ensuring comfort and safety for your little one, while my artistic vision turns these simple moments into art.

When is the best time to schedule a San Diego newborn photography session?

The ideal time to photograph your newborn is within the first 2-3 weeks after birth. During this time, newborns are usually sleepier and more posable, which helps in creating those serene, curled-up poses. Booking your session during your pregnancy is recommended to ensure availability.

How long does a San Diego newborn photography session last?

Newborn sessions typically last between 1.5-2 hours. This allows plenty of time for feeding, diaper changes, and comforting breaks. Patience is key in newborn photography, and the extra time ensures we can create a calm, relaxed environment for your baby.

What should my baby wear for the newborn photos?

Simplicity is key for my San Diego newborn photograpy sessions. I provide a selection of soft, neutral-colored wraps, and accessories that complement the gentle and pure nature of your newborn. If you have a special outfit or a family heirloom you would like included, feel free to reach out beforehand! 

Where will the newborn photography session take place?

Studio sessions are typically held in my studio in north county San Diego which is fully equipped with professional lighting, a variety of wraps and accessories designed specifically for newborns. The studio environment is controlled and cozy to keep your little one comfortable. I also offer in-home newborn lifestyle sessions for a small travel fee if you prefer the comforts of your own home.

How can I prepare for the newborn photography session?

Once your session is booked, I will send you a detailed newborn session guide. This guide includes tips on how to prepare yourself and your baby, what to bring, and what to expect during the session. Ensuring your baby is well-fed and sleepy before the session usually helps in achieving those peaceful, dreamy photos.
