Life Changing Love


say hello! »

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. My favorite thing about being a Solana Beach newborn photographer is stopping time with one click, so they stay that small forever. 

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. I'd love to freeze these fleeting moments for you!

Your Solana Beach Newborn Photographer

Sweet. Soft. Love.

Solana Beach Newborn Session

Solana Beach, California

Congratulations on your sweet baby! 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. 

Most newborn sessions are done within 1-2 weeks after delivery. I know you might not feel your best after birth. I've got you mama. I provide you with everything you will need for your session. Props, delicate wraps, even a selection of gowns for you if needed. If you send me your coffee order, I even promise to have a nice, hot cup of pick-me-up ready if you've had a sleepless night. If you want outfit styling or hair and makeup recs. I've got you. I have a wonderful styling service I invested in for my clients and they do it all! I also have a few extremely talented hair and makeup referrals I can send if you desire that as well. I have prepared for every detail, so your experience is as stress-free as possible. 

Newborn sessions generally last two hours, allowing plenty of time for feedings and soothing to keep your baby happy. The studio is kept at an ideal warm temperature throughout the session, so the baby feels super comfortable. We’ll capture a variety of newborn poses, while also capturing the sweet tiny details that make your baby unique. A simple studio set-up in the comfort of your home along with lifestyle portraits is available . Parent and sibling shots are always included in each session if desired. 

During your baby's session, I want you to sit back and relax while I capture these beautiful, soft, simple and timeless memories you can enjoy for years to come. 

I'm looking forward to working with you and your new baby!

The Investment Details

Tristan did a newborn photography session with our 2 week old baby and was so gentle with her. Her creativity truly shines with newborn pictures and my baby didn’t cry or wake up once! She lovingly incorporated some extra special details that meant the world to us. I've waited for my sweet girl for so long and I am beyond happy to have these memories of her forever! I look at the photos all of the time and my heart just bursts!

We recently had the amazing experience of working with Tristan to capture our newest family member with some fantastic newborn photos! She is patient, caring and knew how to make my husband and I look WAY less tired than we were with a 5 day old! We've already received many compliments on our new family photos and I was in love with her work. Strongly recommend Tristan - you won't regret it!
