Newborn portrait session at the studio | Costa Mesa Baby Photographer

We were excited when this mom chose our adorable aviator beanie from SweetPeaHatsAndMore for her newborn photo shoot, as we’d been waiting to see how it would photograph.  It was as adorable as we thought it would be! We accessorized with baby wraps from Mom N Pop Photo Prop spread out almost like a flowing scarf behind the little guy.

Our vintage 7UP crate from 247 Overstock was another perfect prop. The session, with its neutral colors and backdrops felt all together timeless and high key.

Mom and big brother joined baby brother for a few of the pictures and we think they will all cherish the images.  It’s amazing how much the two boys already look like each other—especially in their happy eyes! We love being able to mix some family or part family portraiture in with newborn sessions, so just let us know ahead of time, and then feel free to bring siblings, grandparents, or even pets. It’s a beautiful way to show how excited everyone is to have a new little one join the family. Don’t fret too much over wardrobe choices either. Since most parents prefer photographing their newborn in only a wrap (because look at that yummy, soft skin!), you don’t have to worry about coordinating. Something casual and classic is usually best. We also have a huge inventory of newborn props, wraps, headbands, beanies, and other accessories, so we can match whatever you have on.

Newborn sessions are best scheduled in the first month after having baby, so plan ahead. If you’re having us do your maternity session, we can even book at that time, saving you one more thing to do once baby is born. Our studio provides the perfect temperature and lighting, so your newborn (and you!) will be warm and cozy, and able to go to or stay asleep.
