Babies change so much in their first year; milestone sessions are the perfect way to document and celebrate each stage.

I create natural, timeless portraits of your baby without the distractions of props, sets, or costumes.

Los Angeles Baby Sessions

Your baby's portrait session can take place in my Northeast LA studio, nearby Mediterranean garden, or at a custom location.

Favorite stages to capture are 3-4 months (smiling and pushing up during tummy time), 6-8 months (sitting unassisted), and 9-15 months (new walkers).

Parents and siblings are welcome to join in the session.

CUSTOM baby session

Looking for a beach or in-home baby session? Dreaming of something else entirely? We'll document exactly what you want, where you want.

Studio sessions are the perfect choice for those wanting a clean, minimalist aesthetic and a great choice for any baby milestone session. Studio sessions include 2 wardrobe changes for baby.

Garden sessions are photographed at golden hour and are perfect for babies six months and up. A portion of your session fee goes to support this beautiful non-profit green space.

Included In Your Baby Session

60-90 minute baby photo session

Whether you choose the studio, garden, or a custom location, your baby's session will be a gentle and enjoyable experience. I follow your baby's cues and we take breaks when needed. Parents and siblings are welcome to join in the session.

Phone Consultation & Prep Guide

Your session includes a phone consultation to plan your session and answer any questions you may have. I'll let you know exactly how to prepare and what to wear for your session.

Complimentary Studio Wardrobe

I have a wonderful collection of dresses for moms and a growing collection of beautiful, tasteful baby clothes. Of course, you may also wear something of your own. I'll also help you style the rest of the family.

A Collection of Retouched Digital Files

Every session includes a collection of digital files. Your final images are hand-retouched to remove any blemishes or distractions and delivered via a private online gallery.

Kind Words

After countless hours of research, we decided on Ariel Cannon for our son's 6 month photo shoot. We loved the clean aesthetic of her work, and the precious images of babies that she captures in such a classic and timeless way.  Ariel was a pleasure to work with.  She is a true professional and managed to get the perfect shots!  With a great eye for imagery and superb editing skills, every photo is a winner. Thank you for a wonderful experience!

"My son's 'sitter session' photos are an absolute treasure. Every one is cuter than the last! What impressed me most, other than the excellent photos, of course, was how gentle Ariel was with my son. She really put his needs first and made sure he was comfortable and happy at all times." - Devon, LA

"Honestly, I didn't have high hopes for our session. Ariel's work is beautiful, but I didn't think our very spirited daughter would stay still long enough for a photo. Turns out I didn't need to worry. Our kiddo had so much fun during the session and Ariel got stellar photos of her... even when she was on the move!" - Julia, LA
