Newborn Sessions


Who would have thought such tiny perfection was possible?!


Newborn sessions are in your home or in my bright Potrero Hill studio.

Either way, I have beautiful wraps and hats for your little one.

No need to prepare anything at all.


We will capture 3 different scenes with your newborn and many photos with you and your new baby.


This sweet session lasts about 2 hours to give your baby time to be fed, changed and soothed.


This session is recommended for newborns from 5-20 days but we can accommodate your little one as needed.


Our first priority is the safety and comfort of your new baby.


Includes a full set of 40+ high resolution retouched digital images
