Newborn in Potrero Hill Studio | Photography by Emily Payne

 Posted on March 28, 2019

Oh, sweet Legacy! I loved having newborn Legacy and her big sister in the studio for her newborn session this week. She was so sweet and surrounded by love from her whole family. She was already one month old when they arrived so we were able to get some photos with her eyes open as well. I was blown away with her big sister. At 7 years old, she was shushing the baby and trying to help me take Legacy out of her car seat! She is so in love with her baby sister!

I can’t wait to get mom and dad in the photos next time!


Baby Milestone Portraits at the Legion of Honor, San Francisco!

 Posted on March 6, 2019

How fun to photograph Brandon for his Baby Milestone Portraits at the Legion of Honor! I love the clean lines and monotone colors at the Legion of Honor, they really make the family stand out in their portraits. Brandon arrived on dad’s shoulders with the hugest smiles. I knew I was going to have fun with him. He held onto dad’s ears for support which may have been a little painful for dad, ouch! I got to see Brandon as a newborn in my studio last year and he was just as cute then but now with more smiles. I am so lucky to see these little ones grow. Baby Milestones sessions are perfect for any time during the first two years. Book them here.


Little Newborns in Potrero Hill, San Francisco

 Posted on March 5, 2019

I always love when clients are so excited to finally call me after they have walked past my studio in Potrero Hill for so many years. Mom had been walking by my studio for years seeing photos in the window and waiting for her turn. She called me right away to schedule her little newborn session in their adorable home.

This is actually their second baby since they recently added an adorable pup to their family as well. Check out the photos with newborn Avery and his big brother!

Newborn Portrait Session, San Francisco

 Posted on March 5, 2019

I can’t wait to tell you this little fact about newborn baby Miles… I went to Miles’s home in San Francisco for his newborn portrait session. His mom was so sweet, soft and calm. She introduced me to Miles and while I was setting up she told me about his name. Mom started running just a few years prior. She got the bug and began to really run. When she became pregnant, she did not stop. She ran 7 marathons and hundreds and hundreds of MILES. How adorable to experience that early connection with your baby. To know that they are with you running the whole way. I teared up. What an awesome start to their relationship.
