I met sweet little Seth today for our photoshoot. He was a super easy little guy to work with and may have been my quickest newborn session to date!

Mom even brought some of her own hats she found on to the session! I love when parents bring their own hats and such, it’s nice to change it up once in a while!

Enjoy your sneak peek, M family! Congrats on your new addition, he is perfect!

Jaime: Love these! What a sweet little smile in the first one!

Beira: What a cute expression in that first one! the lighting in the second one is beautiful.

ig: This paragraph is in fact a good one it helps new net visitors, who are wishing in favor of blogging.

Today I met one of the sleepiest newborns ever. Jackson was an absolute doll to photograph and was so sleepy and curly during the first half of our session today. I think he decided to let me know he had enough of me and my camera later on when he decided to pee on me! ; )

A&B, your son is perfect. Congrats and enjoy your sneak peek!

Abby: Thank you so much! Again - we are soooo sorry he happened to pee on you. These are wonderful!!!

I simply could not believe how grown up Samantha  was on Saturday. The last time I saw her, she was just one week old! I had the honor of photographing her baptism on Saturday afternoon at Our Lady of Guadalupe, a gorgeous church.

Sara and Memo, enjoy your sneak peek and congrats!

Sara Gomez-Barron: Valerie I love them! Thank you, thank you , thank you! Having you there helped me truly enjoy the ceremony.

Little miss S turned 6 weeks old today. While that is much older than my “typical” newborn, she surprised me and slept for a good part of our session today. What’s great about working with older newborns is the awesome eye contact they are able to give you! What more, she really surprised me when she didn’t even do what you would expect any baby to do without a diaper on (not even once!)  ; )

S&E, it was so nice meeting you today and I hope you enjoy your sneak peek!

Jaime: These are darling! What a cutie pie and I am so glad she slept for you.. The one with her eyes open is precious....

Francine: Excellent work!

Lorraine: This little girl is an absolute doll.

Oh how I love watching my babies grow. Mia is one of my baby planners who I will see every three months until she is one. We met a couple weeks ago for her 3 month photo session and I couldn’t believe how much she has grown already! 

Here are a few of my favorites from the day!




How cool is this Hawaiian quilt that her grandmother made for her?!





It was great seeing you again Nicole and Mia, can’t wait for our next session!

I am looking for one (possibly 2) expectant mothers who would like the birth of their upcoming arrival documented through a photojournalistic, unobtrusive style of photography. You can choose to be as modest or uninhibited as you like. I want to be there for you to capture the very special birth of your baby on film, because often times the day is such a blur and we forget so many little details we would love to hold on to forever. I had the birth of my second son photographed by my dear friend Amy of Elmwood Court Photography, and I will cherish those images for the rest of my life.

So what is included?

-Consultation before the birth to discuss your specific wishes

-Full event coverage, including labor, delivery, and those first few moments afterwards as a brand new family.

-DVD slideshow set to music (all images presented in black and white)

-CD of hi resolution images (presented in black and white)

-50% off a maternity or newborn session fee! 

A couple restrictions:

-You must be delivering within 45 miles of zip code 92335

-You must be willing to sign a model release to allow me to use images (at your discretion) for my portfolio

E-mail me at for more info!

I can’t wait to hear from you!

Jori Marten: hi! im friends of alisa and matts.. and im due in June. how much do u charge?

Sara Gomez-Barron: I am soooo in! Please choose me! I thought about doing it with Samantha, and regret not asking you about it!

Erica Hinthorne: This would be wonderful. I'm due with my 4th in September.

ig: great points altogether, you simply received a logo new reader. What might you suggest in regards to your publish that you simply made a few days in the past? Any certain?

First of all, I have been seriously neglecting this blog during March and have quite a few sessions to blog! I am sorry, I promise to get them up by the beginning of next week. : )

This afternoon I meet with the B family for some maternity and family portraits. R is due with a (surprise gender!) baby in just a couple months and looks so fabulous! When she described what she was looking for out of a session, I knew it was something totally different that what I normally do, and forced me to go outside of my “comfort zone”. I loved the results.

B family. enjoy your sneak peek. It was so fun hanging out today. Can’t wait to see you in July and meet your new addition!
