i'd love to hear from you!
When my second child was born, my mother moved across the country to be closer to us. She ended up settling down near Old Town Pasadena, which – luckily – is about ten minutes from my home and studio. As long-time LA residents, we were prepared to show her around town, but she surprised us by showing us the charms of Pasadena. Now, ten years later, I consider myself an honorary Pasadena resident. I am also proud to list myself as a Pasadena maternity & newborn photographer.
Because my studio is so close, I have lots of Pasadena parents who come to me for their maternity, newborn, and baby milestone sessions. If I’m shooting outdoors you will most likely find me at Arlington Garden, in the Southwest corner of Pasadena. This sweet little spot – another hidden gem uncovered by my mother – is where I photograph most of my outdoor maternity sessions.
I photograph my Pasadena newborn clients at my nearby studio or in their homes. The gorgeous mama pictured above just welcomed her baby girl and I visited their Pasadena home to photograph her newborn session.
My style of natural newborn photography is equally suited to studio and in-home sessions. Although my studio is a quick drive from their Pasadena home, these new parents opted for a cozy in-home session.
This beauty slept through most of her session, but I was able to grab a few wide-awake portraits before she drifted back into dreamland. They are some of my favorites from the day!
All my newborn portrait sessions include parent (and sibling) portraits. This mama chose a gorgeous Doen dress from my studio wardrobe collection.
During newborn sessions, I use a method called “baby-led posing”. This means that I pay close attention to your baby’s cues as I guide them through a variety of natural poses. Babies are pretty good and letting me know which positions they find the most comfortable.
