Newborn :: Baby Holland Makes Five!

Orange County Newborn Photographer

What an absolute treat to photograph three girls. As a mom of three boys, I can truly appreciate this. They glided into the studio as if they were really wearing glass slippers. No light sabers, no wrestling, just little soft giggles. Any boy moms out there feel me? Oh my goodness what a different level of energy. So, needless to say, I…

Newborn :: Baby Celia

I’m so excited to share with you, baby Celia. She is beautiful, just like her mom and dad. I usually only photograph newborns between 1-2 weeks old. After that, they tend to resist all of my fun props, blankets and poses. However, this little lady was 6 weeks new and an angel. She posed, she smiled, and she made eye…

Newborn :: Chase

Manhattan Beach Newborn Photographer

I am so excited to finally post this baby! When I first spoke with Stephanie, she told me that her and her husband were big golfers. I ordered this outfit in anticipation of their photo shoot. It was torture to just stare at it as I waited for Baby Chase’s arrival. Oh my gosh, was it worth the wait! He…

  I did not take a maternity leave this time around because so many of my families from previous years were expecting a baby around the same time as me. Am I exhausted? Absolutely. Was it totally worth it to help welcome their newest addition? 100%. My heart is so full spending time commiserating with mamas on our lack of…

I think Manhattan Beach has the most beautiful babies and mamas! Oh my goodness, check out this beautiful family! I had the pleasure of meeting this wonderful family two years ago when their first son was born. Now, they welcome their second bundle of joy. Please meet Kai, 1 week old…   His adorable parents and brother (um.. see what…
