Pasadena Newborn Photography

April 28, 2022

This beautiful family joined me in the studio with their first child about a week after his birth. They were searching for a Pasadena Newborn Photographer who would create natural newborn portraits for their little boy. My studio is conveniently located just minutes from Pasadena, and I was only too happy to oblige. I designed their session with a white, grey, and blush palette with mom’s input, and I love how it turned out!

I create natural newborn portraits with a minimalist aesthetic: no props, costumes, or unnatural posing, just the quiet perfection of you and your baby.

Although I don’t use props in my newborn sessions, I love to use parents’ hands to give a sense of scale to your baby. Your little one will never be this small again, so it’s crucial to capture how tiny they are. I love this series of photographs with mom and dad’s hands.

Are you looking for full-service newborn photographer in Pasadena? You’ve come to the right place. I offer a beautiful collection of dresses available for you to wear during your session. For this session, mom borrowed a gorgeous Rachel Pally dress from the studio wardrobe collection. Of course, dads can get away with a white teeshirt and look great!

At the end of the session, we changed baby into this little knit diaper cover and bonnet. I don’t photograph a lot of clothing on babies, but I have a small selection of simple knits, and I LOVE them. These knits look like they could have come from any of the last five decades, so I know they won’t interfere with the timelessness of the portraits. Here’s a fun fact: my mother-in-law knits them for me!
