Outdoor North County San Diego Newborn Photographer

As a North County San Diego newborn photographer I will always love the coziness and comfort of newborn sessions done in my home studio in San Elijo Hills, CA and in client’s homes, but I may now have a second love!
We wrapped up this little guy’s newborn session in the studio by heading to a nearby field to grab a few quick shots outdoors and I just love how they turned out! In studio and outdoors is the best of both worlds. And you wouldn’t even be able to tell it’s San Diego with all that greenery!

Welcoming Second Baby

I absolutely love to celebrate growing families! I feel so blessed to watch and capture so many families as they grow! It’s so fun to see older siblings that I photographed while they were tiny babies as they take on the new role of becoming big siblings.

Client Wardrobe

We provide personalized styling and use of client wardrobe for moms and children (up to age 5) making styling for your session a breeze. Let’s be honest, it is stressful putting together outfits and deciding on a style for a portrait session. That is why we offer complimentary wardrobe and styling with all portrait sessions. I do the hard work of outfit planning, so that you can relax and enjoy the experience of documenting memories as a family. Click here to find out more about the luxury portrait experience.

The Collective Membership Program is the most popular option for families who want to document baby’s first year! To schedule your session or for more details contact me! I typically schedule 2-3 months in advance but sometimes have last minute availability.
