When your baby is born you will be bowled over by their perfection. You'll want to trace each detail and remember it forever. As a newborn photographer, my job is to help you do just that.

No distracting props or unnatural poses necessary. The elements I rely on are simple: Natural posing, delicate wraps, and gorgeous light.

Los Angeles Newborn Sessions

Your newborn session takes place in my well-appointed Northeast LA studio or the comfort of your own home and includes parent and sibling portraits.

I provide everything we need for your session, including all the pretty wraps and delicate knits you see on my website and Instagram.

Most importantly, your session is a relaxed and enjoyable experience for the whole family.


Included In Your Newborn Session

Newborn Photo Session

Whether you choose a studio or in-home session, your experience will be relaxed and enjoyable. I follow your baby's lead and leave plenty of time for feeding, changing, and extra cuddles. Parent and sibling portraits are included in your session. Sessions typically take between 2.5 and 3 hours.

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

You are welcome to borrow something from my beautifully curated studio wardrobe collection. It's full of dresses that are both comfortable and flattering. 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 gallery is hand-retouched, so that you look your very best, and delivered via a private online gallery.

Ariel is absolutely AMAZING! I can't say enough wonderful things about our experience working with her. She was great at communicating with us on what you prepare for, what the process would be, and what to bring to the shoot. On the shoot day she was WONDERFUL. Being new parents to a one week old, venturing out was a little daunting, but Ariel made everything super comfortable, relaxed and easy. She is excellent working with newborns, I can't say enough about how she was with our son. Our photos were just incredible. We love them so much. They're exactly what we were after - natural, timeless and beautiful. I couldn't recommend Ariel more!

Kind Words

Ariel was a dream to work with from our first phone call to getting our gallery she was friendly and professional the whole way through. We did an in studio session and it was the ideal setup for us first time parents out for the first time with our newborn. She was so patient with us and our fussy baby. She never made us feel rushed and was so gentle and natural with our little one. Our pictures came out so beautifully, we shed tears when we looked at our gallery she captured the joy of our new little family so perfectly. We will definitely be booking with Ariel again for our future family photos.

Book Your Newborn Session

I photograph most newborns within 6-12 days of birth, as this is the best time to get sleepy, curly newborn images.

I take a limited number of newborn sessions each month so that I'll be available for your session whether you deliver "early," "late," or on your due date.

Newborn sessions are booked with a contract and deposit.

When you book your newborn session, I'll reserve a spot for you on my calendar based on your baby's due date.

We'll schedule your actual session date after your baby is born.
