Orange County Newborn Photography Studio – Baby Boy

Orange County newborn photography – baby boy

Baby Aiden’s session went so well! We know his parents from the wedding industry  so it was like working with old friends. Dan is one of the best videographers in Orange County and Jen is an awesome wedding coordinator at Marbella Country Club! When they requested the moon, we had to decide whether we would buy a digital moon and photoshop it, or just try to build one. Brian decided he would give it a shot. The moon turned out perfect, and now we have a moon for future sessions. Congrats Dan and Jen on your brand new baby boy!

There are so many baby photographers now- however, there are only a few Orange County newborn photography studios. Having a studio is key. I can’t even imagine trying to load up the truck with all of my newborn props and transport my 7 foot umbrella, strobes, stands, and everything else! We have over 75 unique backgrounds now- how would I take all of those with me? I LOVE my studio, now I just need to figure out where to store this moon!
