Best Newborn Photography Los Angeles

When this sweet family booked us as their Los Angeles newborn photographer, we were thrilled! Both mommy and daddy are total sweethearts and brought so much warmth and love to their sweet boy’s newborn photo shoot. They were both absolutely smitten with their new baby boy! Take one look at this little guy and you’ll know why. From the moment he arrived for his baby photography session with us, we were smitten too! A total cherub with his wispy baby hair, cute lips and little chubby rolls. These newborns have my heart, every single time! (Best Newborn Photography Los Angeles)

As usual, we started the photography session with the “bare” baby looks. For these shots, baby is sleeping peacefully on a simple, clean fabric. I (Jess) gently guide baby into different poses. These shots really emphasize baby’s pure skin and are beautiful reminders of just how tiny your sweet newborn was!

Best Newborn Photography Los AngelesWe caught an adorable baby smirk here!

Best Newborn Photography Los AngelesWe think this image is the ultimate “peaceful, sleepy baby” shot! The light and airy feel and his relaxed face is just so sweet.

Best Newborn Photography Los AngelesOne of my favorite images in the entire session! This pose is usually more challenging and we don’t always get it in every session, but he just kept snoozing away. Our Los Angeles newborn photography shoots are completely baby led. This means that your baby will dictate which poses we capture. If baby loves a pose and continues to sleep peacefully, then great. We can capture many different angles and perspectives. If there is a pose that baby does not like or is not perfectly comfortable in, then we move on. Parents please take this into consideration when deciding on your newborn baby photographer. Remember this is someone that should be HIGHLY experienced in posing newborns safely.

Best Newborn Photography Los AngelesThe kissiset lips- is that even a word?! Ha ha. He’s just perfect and seems like he was totally ready for this close up shot!

Best Newborn Photography Los AngelesAdding a soft handmade knit angora wrap to this pose gives it such a cozy feeling.

Best Newborn Photography Los AngelesAfter the fabric shots, we settled baby into a different version of bare baby shots. Look at this smile! Swoon!

Being held up in Daddy’s hands was a shot requested by Mom and Dad. Again, this is another pose that can be quite a challenge. This one shot alone takes an average of 30 minutes to pose and shoot. Baby has to also be incredibly sleepy. When this shot is requested, we always try our best but do not guarantee it. Every baby is so different; some are more sensitive, less sleepy and really preferred being swaddled up nice and cozy. So for newborns like that, this shot is not likely-but we always give it our best effort!

Best Newborn Photography Los AngelesOnce we captured Dad’s hands, we called Mom over. “We need your hands please!”, lol. She was so cute and so surprised, “My hands?! Oh really, are you sure?”. I’ll remember that forever. Her sweet boy instantly smiled once she gently cupped his head with her hands. It was definitely a moment.

Best Newborn Photography Los AngelesSince he was still sleeping so well, we were also able to capture some pure baby shots.

Best Newborn Photography Los AngelesOur blue themed set up was also a special request from Mom and Dad. We loved the way it came out against our antiqued blue wood flooring, too.

Best Newborn Photography Los AngelesDetails are the extra pieces you need for story telling, and Matt never leaves them out.

Best Newborn Photography Los AngelesFrom the darker blue look, we switched gears and went to a lighter blue/gray palette. Easily our most requested set up and I’m pretty sure we do a version of this set up in almost every single Los Angeles newborn boy photography session.

Best Newborn Photography Los AngelesGray and blue are a beautiful combo! During our photo shoots we always try to include shots with a textured background for more variety, too!

Best Newborn Photography Los AngelesWho can resist a little teddy bear!? Our handmade knit angora teddy bear hats are a top favorite in our Los Angeles newborn baby photography studio! I think we have this hat in about six different colors now!

Best Newborn Photography Los AngelesWe finish our sessions with parent and baby shots if that package is chosen. Oh sweet mama, how you waited for your perfect boy. Mommy and baby images tug at my heart strings every time. The sense of love and closeness in these images are priceless!

Back in Daddy’s arms and what a wonderful place to be! Five years from now, Dad will look back at these images and find it very hard to believe that his boy once fit inside the bend of his arm.
