Sherman Oaks Newborn Photography

This Los Angeles newborn photography session was meant to be! Mommy emailed us when her sweet girl was already about four weeks old. Although she was a little outside of the typical newborn photography timeframe, Mommy was still hoping to capture some of those adorable newborn portraits. We happened to have a last minute session available as luck would have it! Most of our newborn sessions are booked before baby is born. Due to unpredictability of baby’s arrival though, our schedule is always changing! Sometimes availability on our newborn photography calendar pops up and we can accommodate a last minute session.

Beautiful Baby W arrived to her baby photography session sleeping peacefully.  Hooray! I took one look into her car seat and couldn’t contain my excitement- that hair! Eeek!! As we took her through the various poses during the newborn photography session, she kept snoozing away.  At four weeks old we were lucky she was still so sleepy!

We always try to start with “bare” baby photos at the beginning of our newborn photography sessions.  Sometimes newborns don’t like being un-swaddled. Therefore we always tell parents that we’ll try for these shots. But we will follow baby’s lead.  Baby W was perfectly content to be bare and we captured some gorgeous, simply newborn shots! I used one of many favorite headbands from our Goodnight Moon Props collection.

And added a soft, dusty pink cheesecloth wrap for an entirely new look! Furthermore this textured fabric from Freebird Prop Shoppe is so beautiful and delicate.  I love using it for girls.

All the elements in this image reflect our Los Angeles newborn photography style.  Since we use antiqued wood props, a good amount of texture, neutral color palettes and accessories these do not distract from the beauty of the newborn baby.

Parents often choose this type of image for a big print or canvas in baby’s nursery.
