Best Heirloom Gifts for your Newborn Baby | Newborn Photography Los Angeles | Baby-Girl Vivienne

Newborn Photographer Los Angeles 01

Newborn photography became very popular in the past ten years. Photographs of adorable sleeping babies in the first few days of their lives are so precious that expecting parents sometimes start to inquire and book a photographer in their first trimester. Having a custom artwork that features your perfect little baby is an amazing family heirloom, specially considering how quickly newborns change. But there are a few ways to make it even more special.

If you are having a newborn session, have a family portrait captured! As gorgeous as the individual newborn portraits are, you can only really tell how tiny the baby is, when parents are holding him or her. And, as much as you love your brand new little baby, the family portrait will probably be the one your child will truly cherish when he or she grows older. Imagine yourself having a photograph with your own parents when you were only a few days old. Wouldn’t that be magical? I think you would have that photograph proudly displayed somewhere in your home. And I know that most brand new mamas don’t really feel like being photographed only a few days after giving birth and caring for a newborn baby day and night, but do it for your little one and a professional photographer will know how to capture you in the most beautiful way.

Another way you can create an heirloom for your baby, is by writing a message, note, or a letter. How would you feel as an adult if you had a note or a letter that your parents wrote to you when you were a newborn? I always think it would be incredible to know what they felt like back then, what emotions they were going through, what their favorite thing was about me, what their hopes and dreams were at that time. Reading something that was written for you in the past feels truly extraordinary.

Couple of years ago I started suggesting the new parents who’s newborns I photographed to do this for their baby’s album, to write a note. They handwrite a note, and then I scan it into their baby’s photo album, and I usually place it right next to their very first family portrait where mom and dad are holding their tiny little newborn. Since then the fine art albums became the most requested product for my newborn sessions. Parents still get beautiful wall portrait collections to display in their home and enjoy it, but they get the album for their baby. Some keep it as an 18th birthday present, others order an extra parent’s copy that they can enjoy now, and I have some parents ordering an album for every milestone they have a portrait session for, and write a note for each book.

Newborn family portrait

“You were created with so much love my little Vivi. Mommy loves you.”

I think these are one of the sweetest memories you can create for your child. When he or she is 40, 50, 60 years old, these will probably be some of the favorite things he or she would have as a memory of you. Don’t put off your plans to get a family portrait. Sometimes years pass by and things are still not ideal. We all have an extra pound we wont to lose, there is always so much going on in our busy lives, but now is the perfect time! We have no idea what tomorrow is going to bring.

And write letters to your children. Write them before they are born, after they are born, when they say their first word, after you drop them off at school for the first time, or just when you feel proud of them. Let this be an insight to your love for them. Make these a family tradition.

The photos in this post are of beautiful baby-girl Vivienne. I chose to feature her session as a part of this post because she has a photograph with her mommy and daddy, and above is a page from her photo album with the notes they wrote for her. You can find few fragments of their beautiful words in the video below. Vivienne’s mama also wrote a review about their photography experience with me. If you would like to read it, it’s on the testimonials page on my website.

Newborn Photography Los Angeles | Award Winning Newborn Photographer

Newborn Photographer Los Angeles Baby boy

Every year for the past six years I go to the WPPI (Wedding and Portrait Photographers International) convention, which is one of the biggest portrait photography associations and conventions in the world. I spend the first day or two of the week-long convention watching the international portrait competition judging. Some of the best photographers in the field form a panel of six judges and critique thousands of the most beautiful photographs submitted from around the world. The critique that takes place in those rooms is quite brutal and I always found it to be one of the best educational resources. Every year I would sit there and take notes on what to do and what not to do, while judges would take apart someones beautiful photograph and critique on things that weren’t even visible to my eye at the time. Then I would review those notes while looking through my portfolio and I would critique my own work. This helped me recognize the things I needed to work on in order to improve my craft.

Even though I love watching the judging, I never had a real urge to submit my work. That is until this year, when I made new friends at the convention who enter almost every prestigious competition to collect awards. And, of course, they talked me into submitting.

I am very excited to announce, that I am now an international award winning portrait photographer. It is very gratifying to be able to say that. All four of my photographs got awarded. Three of those are newborn portraits and the forth one is a maternity photograph. It is very satisfying to know that my artwork meets the highest standards of international professional portrait photography.

I have to say, however, that at the end of the day, what matters most, is that mom and dad really love the photos I capture of their little one. That’s where I get the biggest joy for what I do. I feel so proud when parents get emotional seeing their baby’s photographs for the first time, when I see their excitement and how in love they are with the results. That’s what gives me the biggest validation for my work!

Newborn Photographer Los Angeles | Baby-boy OBI

Salma-NB-51a

I love each and every one of my portrait sessions, but every now and then, there is a session that truly inspires me, wether because of the family’s story, their request, or something new that I discover or capture during the session. This was one of those portrait sessions.

When Salma (Obi’s mama) called me, she told me a little about their family. She said that they are from Africa, they are an older couple and are very excited about having Obi in their lives because their older children are now 21 and 23, and they would like to have a newborn portrait session to capture this special milestone. During our phone consultation (before the shoot) we were talking about the colors for the session, and I asked about baby’s skin tone to prepare the color pallet, and Salma said with her beautiful African accent: “He’s skin is dark, he is very dark.” I loved haring that! I have photographed babies of many different ethnicities, but hadn’t had a chance to work with a family from Africa, and photograph a baby with truly dark skin tone. This was such an inspiration. It immediately got my mind rolling with different ideas for the portrait session.

It turned out beautifully and I am very proud of the results. Some of these images are my new favorites and one is now a centerpiece at the studio. But more importantly, I am happy to have met this beautiful family. Their kindness and gracefulness were a very big part of the inspiration.

They are writing notes for me to include in Obi’s photo album. When I read what Salma wrote for her baby, I got a little emotional. With her permission I want to share the beautiful notes she wrote for her son. There is so much love in these words, I think every parent could relate to it no matter what religion they are.

“My beloved son Obianefo,

Words cannot express the joy and love I feel as I look at you. I was overjoyed and so thankful to Yahweh our God, when the doctor’s office told me I was carrying you. You are a gift from God almighty our God Jehovah Jireh to me. Since you have been here, I sing to you every morning filled with joy and gratefulness to God our maker.

Praying over you a few times is a daily ritual. O my love only if words could express the love I feel.  Oh the love in my eyes, the feeling of warmth in my heart when I look at you. No surprise, I wake up in the middle of the night to listen to your heartbeat and kiss you. O how I love you.

As our faithful God gave Samuel to Sarah so did He give you to me. Do not ever go against our maker our Lord and master. I ask that you seek, worship and serve Him diligently with all your heart, mind, being and soul.

My love for you can’t be quantified. I didn’t remember I could love so much.

May God almighty grant you peace, joy, love, wisdom, all the days of your life; as goodness, mercy and favor also pursue you all the days of your life, and you shall dwell in the presence of God forever and ever. Amen.

Nyame Nhyira wo!!

I love you, Medofo Obianefo Adnan Okonkwo.”

Fine Art Portrait Photographer Los Angeles | Ani Portraits New Studio

Lounge and sales room.

Lounge and sales room.

Every photographer’s dream is to have their own portrait studio, and of course it had been one of mine since I started this journey six years ago. And when I dream, I like to dream big. I believe that it’s important to be ambitious, to thrive for the best, and work hard towards our dreams; and that only by dreaming big and believing in ourselves, we can get where we want to be. So I didn’t just want a studio, I wanted the one that I’ve been envisioning. And finally, last month, I found the perfect space for my beautiful new portrait studio, and the home for my dream.

The very fist time I walked into the location, I know that was it. high ceiling, large windows, wood accent walls, and lost of space to create a comfortable environment for my wonderful clients. In only two weeks, with the help of my family, I remodeled it, bought all the furniture and necessities, organized and decorated it to be ready for the grand opening, which was on May 22nd.

[ Thank you Jodie Myers – www.mybirthmovie.com – for this beautiful video! ]

Thank you to everyone who came to support me and celebrate with me this big achievement, and the new chapter of my professional life. And thank you to my amazing family for all their help and support, and for always believing in me. When the time came to cut the ribbon, I couldn’t think of anyone more honorable and deserving then my mom. She never doubted me, she was always there for me, and she is the one who taught me that I can do whatever I put my mind to, and that I can be whoever I want to be. I wouldn’t have been here today without her and my family. I surprised her by asking her to cut the ribbon for me, and she got very emotional. One of the things she said before putting scissors to the ribbon, was wishing everyone achieve their dreams and goals no matter how hard it may seem at times.

The studio is now open, and I’m very excited. I tried to make it as cosy as possible for all the visitors, especially very new parents with newborns and expecting mommies. It’s important to me that everyone feels comfortable and at home. I have a privet guest room/client room which has a make-up area, changing table, kids play table, a TV, and a nice big couch. If mommy or daddy wants to take a much needed nap while I’m photographing their newborn or kiddo, they are welcome to.

Of course there is a room where all my photography props are nicely organized and ready to go for a session. Part of that room is also dedicated to quality control and packaging for when the orders come in. I like to beautifully wrap all the prints, portraits, and albums before sending them to their permanent home.

Props, props, and more props. This is where the design magic happens.

KAI & COLEMAN | Los Angeles Baby Newborn Photographer

I recently visited Kai and Coleman and realized that I never posted their newborn photography session. I don’t often get a chance to photograph newborn twins, so had to share these images with you. It is so different from photographing a single baby, and so fan posing the newborn twins together. Definitely takes some patience and creativity, but double the joy when looking at the final images. They are almost 10 months old now and absolute angels. I have a picture with them on my Facebook page if you want to check it out 🙂

I also enjoyed so very much meeting their wonderful parents. They are very creative themselves and it’s always a pleasure being in their company. The boys mommy is a singer and songwriter, and it is her singing for their slideshow, you can watch it at the end of the portrait gallery. She also has an amazing life story and experience to share, and I hope you will get to learn about it on my blog one day.

When is the best time to photograph babies?

When is the best time to Photograph Babies?

All my clients with babies ask me the same question at one point or another: When is the best time to photograph the baby? I get this question so often, that I decided to dedicate a post to it.

There are milestones that happen only once in a lifetime, and whatever you do, try not to miss capturing these milestones in your baby’s life.

1. Newborn Portraits

The first stage is of course infancy. Newborn photography is very big, yet some parents avoid having photographed their newborn babies, thinking that they are too tiny and always asleep, so there isn’t much to photograph. However, those are the things that make this milestone so special. Close up Photograp of a Newborn baby-girlThink about it, the most adorable and precious pictures you have ever seen of babies were mostly of newborns. This is the shortest stage in our life, the very first moments of existence, it only lasts a few days, how would you not want to have beautiful professional images of it? This is the time when you should have close-up detail images of their feet, hands, eyelashes… and those adorable sleeping images of them in different curled-up poses.These poses can only be done with newborn babies of up to 10 days old. Why so early? Because only at this time they feel comfortable in those poses. They are also less sensitive to touch and sound, so they stay asleep longer and the photographer can model them into those adorable poses and capture some beautiful images.Newborn Photography Los Angeles Baby Girl Ava 01 In about two weeks after birth baby’s physiology starts changing. They are not as flexible anymore and don’t feel comfortable in infant poses. They start sleeping less and become more sensitive to touch and sound. And may start getting colicky. These factors make a portrait session very challenging for both baby and photographer. Therefor, newborn photography sessions need to be done before the baby is 10 days old, or at most 2 weeks oldNewborn Photography Los Angeles AT Studios Ryder 07Some parent’s prefer to wait till the baby is three-four month old, but in my opinion, it’s not even necessary to have a professional session at that age. The babies are in transition for about six months after birth. During that time the portraits that can be captured of them are lying on their back, or on stomach pulling themselves up. It’s a good idea to have a mini session to capture them in that age, but a full session is not necessary.

2. Six Month Baby Portrait Session

Baby-girl-Isabella-1The next stage is between six to seven months old, when the baby just starts sitting. Imagine this, all they can do is sit there, smile, and make all the cute and adorable faces they make around this age, and they can’t go anywhere! How great is that!!! This is when you can have a lot of fun. Baby boy Ryan 2You can dress them up in different outfits, you can have shots indoor and outdoor, and have different fun setups. It’s also very easy to get their attention, they can’t crawl away to something that looks more interesting yet. This is the time to capture the baby giggling and clapping and doing cute and funny faces. 6-month-baby-girl-nellas-photoshoot-in-her-nursery-3This is also a great time to capture some adorable portraits of the baby in his or her beautifully decorated nursery. Sessions at this age can get very fun and creative.

3. One Year Celebration

Than you can skip a couple of months again to the one year session, when the baby is already crawling and standing, and you can have a very dynamic and fun birthday celebration session with a yummy cake. Babies are very active at this age, they want to explore, they are very fast and they are now standing! These pictures are all about catching the right moment!

You can have some creative indoor or outdoor shots and than let the baby go crazy and messy with a birthday cake. If you are having a party the same day you are doing the photoshoot, than you will probably have a nice fancy cake.

Lori's-one-year-old-photo-session-4Of course you should include it in the pictures but remember to buy a back up cake for the fun images, because you don’t want to ruin the real cake and you must have the cake-face pictures. The back up cake can be small, and because it’s just for the baby, try getting something the baby will like the taste of, you want him or her to really dig into it!

As you see all these stages are different and worth having a professional session. When you think about it, it’s only three milestones in one year, but very important ones. The problem is, that babies grow up so fast, and being a parent takes up so much time, that many parents miss these milestone when they should have a professional session done.  It makes me sad when a parents ask me “When is the best time to photograph my baby?” and they have already missed that time. Sometimes they have such a disappointed look on their face, it breaks my heart.2-year-old-baby-girl-stellas-photo-session-5

If you are working with a professional photographer, he or she must have a baby package that includes all those milestone, and you can just purchase that package and he/she should take care of everything, so you don’t miss out on documenting any important events of your babies life. Just make sure to take care of this before the baby arrives, so you don’t miss out on anything. Contact me if you are interested in my baby portrait plan and I will tell you all about it.One-and-a-half-year-old-baby-girl-Valentina's-Photography-Session-3If you have any questions, feel free to email me or post a comment. I will be happy to help you out. To see more posts and images please go to the recent posts.

Newborn Photography Session – Arabella

The little star of this newborn photography session is adorable, 9 days old, baby Arabella from Oxnard CA. Her auntie got this portrait session for her as a birth present. And I must say, what a wonderful present! She will grow out of every piece of clothing and furniture, but she, her parents, and the entire family will always cherish these newborn portraits.

And for Arabella’s newborn portraits I used some of the cutest new headbands I got recently at a photography convention in Las Vegas, I think I’m in love with them 🙂

Baby Photography Session – Eva’s Cake Smash Portraits

This is my adorable little niece (my cousin’s baby) little princess Eva. We had a one year old cake smash portrait session for her. I think this photography session was very appropriate for little Eva because her favorite words are “Nyam-Nyam” LOL and she pronounces it so sweet and loud, that you just want to keep feeding her 🙂 I love this little marshmallow!!!

At first she was a little shy about touching the cake. Then she got really into it, and pretty soon she was done with being the celebrity for the day, and so I captured her last shot which I call “no more pictures please” LOL

Family Photography Session – Baby Flynn with Mommy and Daddy

Having an outdoor family photography session, or a baby photography session, with kids that are about one and a half years old is usually a lot of fun. They just love to explore things, and so that’s how my favorite portrait of baby Flynn happened, with her hugging the bench and sticking her thong out LOL I just love that image 🙂 And the one of her giggling in mom and dad’s arms, is just precious.

Family portrait is like a time capsule. And I am so happy to have captured these beautiful moments for this wonderful family.

Khloe & Kayla | Los Angeles Newborn Baby Children Photographer

It’s been a while since I posted on my blog. I’m sorry! I fell a little behind. I hope to if not catch up, at least be able to go back to my routine of posting once a week.

I would love to share with you the images from this children’s portrait session I had in the winter. These little girls are Kayla and Khloe, they are first cousins and were born one month apart. The reason why this portrait session was special to me, is because I used to work with Khloe’s mommy very closely many year ago when I was a bookkeeper. I also knew Kayla’s mommy, and both their daddies. It’s been many years since I’ve seen them, and now meeting them with their cute little girls and having a portrait session with them, felt like a little family reunion 🙂 Of course there was a lot of catching up, a lot of fun conversations about the old days, and it brought up lost of memories.

And of course it was very fun photographing these goofy little girlies 🙂 I hope you enjoy their portraits and their beautiful portrait video.

Newborn Baby Girl Giselle’s First Portraits

I always say that I am very blessed to be able to do what I love, and part of that blessing is photographing newborn babies. Capturing the delicate beauty of a little newborn who just came into this world is truly priceless. These moment only last a few days, and helping remember them for a lifetime is simply amazing. Their fist days of life, their beautiful little features, how tiny they are in their parent’s hands, and how lovingly their mommy and daddy are looking at this little newborn bundle of joy, are such wonderful things to capture in photographs.

This little nugget, I had the pleasure of photographing, is newborn baby girl Giselle. At 9 days old she already knew what she wanted and tried posing for herself. I have to say, she did a very good job, especially in the smiling portrait! Those are all her moves in that image, and it’s one of her mommies favorite newborn portraits of her. Her mommy and daddy are very sweet as well. It was such a pleasure meeting them during this very special time of their life, and capturing their very fist family portrait!

Victoria, baby Giselle’s mommy, wrote a testimonial about her experience during their newborn portrait session with me. CLICK HERE to read it!

Teresa’s Family Photography Session

A family portrait is one of the greatest family assets. Children grow by day and before you know it, they will be packing their bags to leave for collage. Photographing families, especially when they are being who they truly are, is like freezing their life in this very moment to be enjoyed for a lifetime.

This is Teresa’s family. Her loving husband and her two kids, 3-year-old baby girl, and 7-year-old little man. It’s their family’s day in a park. A moment when their kids are still silly little kids, photographed to remember for a lifetime 🙂

Ellia & Anthony – Children’s Outdore Photography Session

Photographing children is always fun and unpredictable. Sometimes I may have a little plan in my head on how the portrait session will go, but I have enough experience to know that I should not count on it 🙂 and more importantly push it to happen. I know that if I do so, I will most definitely miss out on a better portrait than I could ever plan. A portrait that shows the kiddos real personality and expression. They will make it happen, I just need to be ready to capture it!

In these portraits are little brother and sister Ellia and Anthony. Ellia is almost 2 and Anthony is almost 4 years old. And as adorable as they are, they did make me sweat 🙂 and even had my heart skip a bit couple of times 🙂

Kids Outdoor Portrait Session

These are Ed, Jo-Jo, Levon, and Marianna. The boys are brothers, and Marianna is their one and only cousin. They are growing up together and every year in December the kids share a portrait session for their holiday cards. This year I was the photographer, who had the pleasure of photographing these adorable children. I have to tell you, photographing four young children in one session is pretty challenging! 🙂 A lot of tricks, imagination, and game playing had to be used! 🙂 But we did have a lot of fun. And… we had a good workout running around the park 🙂

Holiday Children and Family Mini Portrait Session Event

This year we had a one day in studio event of Mini Holiday Sessions for Family and Children portraits. It was very hectic but was a lot of fun! There was even a newborn baby-boy who made his first trip out of home just so that I could take some adorable portraits of him. I did a lot of shopping to decorate the holiday portrait set and I think it turned out very elegant. I might just make this an annual tradition, so mark your calendars to book a spot for holiday portrait sessions in 2014! 🙂

Sara’s Newborn Portrait Session

Do you remember the cutie in this image below? I photographed her when she was an 8 month old baby and she is one of the little stars on my website. She just had a baby sister and I had the pleasure of doing her newborn portraits. It’s unbelievable how much they look alike! Sara even prefers the same bottle as Nella did when she was a newborn, and they have similar habits. It felt like photographing twins 18 months apart 🙂 I was also very excite to meet this little princes because I photographed her mommy recently for the maternity portraits. I love that session!
