Newborn Sofia’s Debut

Sofia’s mom contacted me a few weeks before her newborn arrived to secure a date with me. She wrote in her initial email, “I just adore your photos!” which made me so happy!

When Sofia arrived, they contacted me right away to adjust our date. I drove down to Pacifica and it turned out they were next door neighbors with previous clients of mine!

Small world.

I set up a little studio in their bedroom. I used their beautiful light wood floor as a background for many of the photos. Sofia was a dream. Also, she may have been dreamING the whole time! Sleepy little girl let us pose her in all of the adorable newborn poses that mom was hoping for. We even incorporated their fur babies in the family photos. Mom and dad run a doggie day car in San Francisco so it was  important to capture the pups as well!

Mom was thrilled when I sent her the gallery of images. She wrote, “Love them!!!!! Thank you so much ❤❤
