San Diego Newborn Baby Photographer
It was so fun to meet and to photograph baby girl, Amaya for our newborn session a few weeks ago in the newborn studio. This sweet baby was born a few weeks early, and spent a few weeks in the NICU. She was finally able to come home and was happy and healthy to have her photography session take place, so we went ahead and finally set up her session.
Beautiful Amaya was do sweet and was so fun to pose. She did great with holding my very favorite pose on her own. If you follow my blog, you’ll know that almost always, the ‘froggy pose’ is done as a composite. I take two separate shots – one while holding arms and wrists, and the other holding baby’s head. Well every now and then, baby’s body type, sleep phase, etc… will allow for baby to hold the pose on their own. I am always hovering over their head with my hand just in case for safety. Safety is absolutely my main priority!
A few weeks ago, just before Amaya’s session, a few of us San Diego newborn photographers got together to hold a newborn and baby prop sale. We love all of our props, but often like to change it up and trade/sell/buy amongst ourselves to keep our inventory new and fun. I set out to get rid of a lot of my newborn backdrops, hats, props and headbands because I have a serious newborn prop hoarding problem, but instead, ended up just adding a ton more to my inventory. Oops! So, for Amaya’s session, I was ready with a cool array of new stuff! Check out the cute blue doll bed… Baby Amaya was a fan. You can tell because she chose that prop to smile in ????. And that gorgeous, white wool wrap keeping Amaya cuddled on the white fur was handmade by an amazing fellow newborn photographer. Here is her online store… These wool wraps are so beautiful and unique! It’s really amazing to have such talent right here in San Diego!
Anyhow, here are a few images from baby Amaya’s newborn baby session!
