Since launching the studio segment of my business last year, I have had the honor to work with many families and their newborn . I always feel so privileged to be able to document those first moments for them. What many of my clients have told me about the studio is that they love that they were able to capture connected lifestyle inspired images with their baby as well as polished portraits. I am thrilled that I can offer my clients such diversity in their galleries.Read More
When I was pregnant with both of my girls, I had to find out the gender before they arrived. I am a planner by nature and the thought of waiting nine months to discover the gender of my baby always seemed daunting to me. In retrospect, I wish I had the patience to wait it out. Although I will not be having any more babies, I am able to share in the excitement of my clients, most of whom are patient and discover the sex of their baby at birth.
It is always wonderful to see my maternity clients return for their newborn sessions. What makes it even better is when those clients are local Long Beach residents. I know how busy new moms are and I am pleased to be able to offer the convenience of studio newborn sessions for them. The session lasts 2-3 hours during which time I pose baby comfortably and gently into natural poses.Read More

When potential clients contact me about newborn sessions, I always recommend scheduling a family newborn session.

Other clients have told me that they prefer the "polished" look and brighter aesthetic that a studio session provides.Read More
