It is very important for me that parents stay next to their babies during my newborn sessions. I never ask mothers to stay further away from baby as is sometimes requested by other photographers due to the idea that the smell of mother’s milk will cause the baby to become unsettled. If the baby show signs of hunger such as the rooting that can occur when they sense and smell their mother, they are given appropriate time to feed. A satisfied baby will not be unsettled due to the smell of milk and it is better to have an extra set of hands close by than not.
What to wear for maternity session?
For your maternity photo session wear comfortable shoes, and if you would like to wear heels for any part of the session then bring them along in a bag. I can recommend to wear a long, clingy dress in a solid color but don’t be afraid to use patterns as well! You should wear clothes that make you feel beautiful and show off your belly. Snug (but not too tight!) outfits are better than loose ones. If the outfit is too loose, your belly won’t be well defined and the photos will be less flattering.
For Dad-to-Be and/or siblings, coordinate your wardrobe instead of matching. Selecting complimentary colors is a great way to go. Neutral shades in muted tones photograph beautifully for a timeless look. Or think warm or cool tones in varying shades of the same color. If you love patterns, be sure they complement your overall color scheme and style.
Happy Two-Week Old Baby Girl Nadia's Newborn Session in Sunland, CA by Los Angeles Newborn Photographer
There is nothing sweeter than photographing a happy, chubby-cheeked two-week-old newborn baby. It was an in-home petite newborn session. Here are some of my favorite photos from our time together as well as my answer to the most popular question:
What do I need to do to prepare for a newborn session?
After your baby arrives and before your session, I will send you a confirmation email with some tips on how to prepare for your session. I will bring everything you will need for your newborn session: a newborn posing beanbag, background fabrics, a basket or two, blankets, wraps, hats, and headbands. So there really isn’t much you need to prepare; however, the pictures will hold a different meaning if we utilize your hats, blankets, or other props you wanted to include in the picture.
NEWBORN PHOTOGRAPHY SESSION AT HOME. Everything needed for the session is provided by me. I create a warm, relaxing and peaceful environment in the comfort of your own home.
A sweet seven-week-old baby Danika with her parents. Yes, it is ideal to photograph babies under 14 days but it is not always possible. It should not mean you can’t still get newborn photos.
This session was planned in the different location this morning. When I arrived there, I found out that it was closed due to filming activities. "Of course, they had to close this park today. I visited this place a couple of times before the shoot and planned the entire session." I was talking to myself, wondering where else I could shoot at 10 am when the sun is so harsh.
The new location was found, and after five minutes I was driving to meet my returning clients. I did a maternity session for baby Lucas' patents last April and his newborn session in May. Today, it was time for his six-month-old session. I was so happy to see and photograph them again.
J & J met each other eight years ago and getting married in October. I am glad we captured their Engagement Session yesterday afternoon and I had a chance to connect with them on a personal level and understand them better before the wedding day.
We were crying” it was a text message from baby B’s parents after they received photos from her 6-month in-home photo session. I am ready to work day and night for text messages like this one.
Californian Fall Children Session in Santa Clarita, CA / Christmas Gift for Grandparents/ Santa Clarita Family Photographer
This Fall Photo Session has been done as a Christmas gift for grandparents. On a fine day in October, all six cousins gathered together to be photographed. Later, one of the pictures from this session has been printed, framed and wrapped. I think, this is a great Christmas gift idea!
Some things just go together, like romance and France, or the color pink and bridal showers. Aksha's bridal shower featured all four of these options. Pearls, macarons, flowers, and Chanel perfume transformed Aksha's aunt backyard in Canyon Country into a little bit of France for this Parisian bridal shower.
