Newborn Photographer Los Angeles

      Natural Newborn Photography

      I believe that your newborn’s portraits should recall your sweet baby – simple and pure.

      With a fresh approach to fine art newborn photography, I create timeless images – without complicated props and sets – that are full of emotion and free from distractions.

      My sessions are designed with new parents in mind. From the moment you inquire to the day I deliver your finished portraits, my team and I take care of the details. Your job is to care for your newborn. Our job is to care for you.

      The Comforts of Home

      The days after baby is born are like no other. I know what those days (and nights) feel like, and want to help you stay in your “baby bubble” as long as possible. That’s why I offer both in-home and studio sessions. When you choose an in-home session I bring my complete newborn set-up to you. I’ll photograph your baby in the comfort of your own home so that you can concentrate on what’s important – taking care of baby and yourself.

      No-Stress Sessions

      Your session is thoughtfully planned and designed to be an enjoyable and stress-free experience. In fact, my clients usually tell me that the session was a lovely break for them!

      I give you all the help you need to prepare yourself and baby for our time together and ensure beautiful images.

      I follow your baby’s lead when posing and make her safety and comfort my top priorities. I follow baby’s rhythm and never impose a time-limit on your session.

      Unparalleled Product

      I believe wholeheartedly in the power of print and the treasure of a family heirloom and provide a carefully curated line of exceptional artwork for your home.

      Our offerings include heirloom albums, framed fine art prints, fine art canvases, matted print collections and birth announcements.

      All of our newborn sessions include your high-resolution digital files AND the opportunity to purchase fine art prints and products.

      Please inquire for full product & pricing details.

      Peace of Mind

      Your baby’s comfort and safety are my first priority. I follow your baby’s lead when posing and make sure that your newborn is always in a safe and comfortable position.

      I am up to date on all vaccines, including Tdap (Whooping Cough), Flu & MMR.

      I am a member of the NAPCP, PPA, and am certified in Newborn Safety with the APNPI.

      What a great service Ariel provides! She took such special care our family, and with a new baby, it was so nice to be taken such good care of and come out with amazing pictures on the other side. I mean amazing pictures. She captured our baby (and his big brother) perfectly and calmly. Can’t recommend her enough! –Jen, Silverlake, CA


      As anyone who has experienced morning sickness knows… motherhood begins well before birth. Whether your pregnancy has been a dream or a challenge, you deserve a collection of beautiful portraits to commemorate the journey.

      Maternity portraits are also a beautiful way to share with your child how eagerly you anticipated their arrival!

      My maternity sessions are photographed with the same minimalist aesthetic as my newborn work and are designed to be easy and convenient.

      You’ll even have use of my studio wardrobe, which includes gorgeous dresses and robes from Rachel Pally, Doen, Ingrid & Isabel and more.

      If you're interested in a newborn or maternity session, please get in touch as soon as possible. My schedule is often filled weeks or months in advance.

      After I receive your inquiry I'll send you detailed session information - including pricing - and will be available by phone and email to answer any questions you may have.


      Once you've paid your deposit and completed your contract, your newborn session is reserved. I take a limited number of sessions each month so that I'll be available to photograph your little one whether or not she arrives close to your due date.

      After you book we'll connect by phone to go over some session prep tips, answer any questions you have, and discuss any special requests you may have for the session.


      We'll photograph your maternity session when you are between 30-34 weeks pregnant. Maternity sessions are photographed in my Los Angeles studio and include the use of studio wardrobe from Rachel Pally, Doen, Natori, and more.

      This is also a lovely time for us to get to know one another a little before your newborn session!

      When you book a full newborn session your maternity session is complimentary.


      Within a couple days of delivering your baby you'll reach out to let me know he's arrived! At that time we'll schedule your actual session date.

      Generally I will photograph your baby between 6 and 10 days of birth.

      Whether you choose to do your session in your home or in my studio I'll have absolutely everything we need, including all the gorgeous wraps, blankets and knits you see in my portfolio.


      Within 3 weeks of your session I'll deliver you online gallery of hand edited and retouched portraits.

      You'll be able to download your images and share them with family and friends. You will also have the opportunity to order fine art prints and products through me.

      Custom artwork design is included with your session!
