Leo is a handsome boy with amazing big eyes. I did his newborn session and was so happy to see this boy again for his first birthday session.
It was in-home lifestyle newborn session in Santa Monica, CA. Maia's parents choose a combo ( lifestyle + poses) newborn session for her. Simple, light and all about the baby. Exactly how I like.
It was fun backyard first birthday session for baby Ryan in Santa Clarita,CA. He was my newborn client and was happy to see him again in one year.
I’ve been so fortunate to meet and photograph amazing people. I met Andy and her husband when she was pregnant with her first daughter. I photographed newborn Maisy then it was her first year session. Now it was time for a second round. I can’t wait to meet your second daughter, Andy!
About My Business Name
The decision on how to name my photography business has been made during lunch at my previous job. Now I can talk about photography a lot, but in those days, at the beginning of my photography career, I talked about it nonstop. Suddenly, my manager and friend who I had lunch with, told me that I need my photography website…and we have to come up with the business name. How about ZOOMphotoraphy she asked me? Sounds not bad but it was already taken. Then it was ZAMphotoraphy first three letters of my last name …. also taken by a Texas guy (now we follow each other on Instagram) …. and then we came up with ZAMMphotoraphy maybe not a very fancy name but definitely a catchy one. I have some clients who told me that, since it was so easy to remember, they were able to found me after seeing my advertising on social media for six months.
My story about starting in photography is in All About Me site, but I want to share how I made my start in newborn photography. I always wanted to photograph babies but had no experience nor portfolio, and an amazing thing had happened: two of my friends and neighbors got pregnant 6 months apart. I remember my first newborn session as if it had happened today. Baby Lila was a month old and didn’t want to sleep at all. She was looking at me with her big and curious eyes and was really interested in what I was doing. I didn’t understand much what I was really doing even after watching hours of online newborn photography classes. When it was time for Lila's potty and she left it on my blanket, my friend asked me if I really wanted to do newborn photography. The soiled blanket didn’t discourage me. My answer was “yes”. My second baby was Samantha. She was also a one month old. I prepared this session thoroughly. If my first session with Lila lasted two hours ( this is how much time I had), Samantha’s session lasted two days for six hours each. Thanks to my friend, Samantha's patient mom, I got a lot of practice. Right now, both girls are 5 years old and, thanks to them, newborn photography become a big part of my life and my career.
