Welcome Precious Baby | Los Angeles Newborn Photographer

I had a wonderful time visiting with this sweet family again.  I first met them during their maternity portrait session and we hit it off right away.  I was so excited to meet the newest member of their family: handsome baby C!  Just like my little guy, his arrival was a bit late but definitely worth the wait.  He is so adorable and perfect!  Since the kitties were very curious about what we were up to, I loved getting to include them in a few shots.  C and A, your love for your baby boy is already clearly so strong and I am sure that you will be incredible parents.  What a lucky little guy he is to have you both!  Thank you for welcoming me into your lives and for the privilege of documenting this incredible journey you are on together.  Wishing you all the best as you enjoy snuggling your sweet baby!

And Baby Makes Four | Orange County Newborn Photographer

I love getting to photograph families as they grow and welcome a new baby.  I especially love photographing growing families over the years when they are so dear to my heart.  It doesn’t seem like that long ago that we documented their first maternity portraits, their first newborn portrait session, and their annual family portraits.  Looking back at this family’s past portrait sessions reminds me how quickly time rushes on and with the blink of an eye our babies are grown.  This notion makes me so thankful for my camera and my perspective because I can chronicle brief moments in a child’s life.  I hope that this somehow helps slow down time, if only for a moment.  It was really special for me to watch Miss J become a big sister and to do it with such love and devotion.  S and B, thank you for inviting me to document Miss K during her first week of life.  I know she is already deeply loved by you both and by her big sister.  She is one lucky, beautiful, little, baby girl!

Welcome Little Beauty | Los Angeles Newborn Photographer

I love it when I show up to photograph a new, little family and we really hit it off.  Being a mama to an almost-two-year-old toddler, I remember my own pregnancy and birth experience very clearly.  I enjoy chatting with new moms and dads and hearing about their own story of how they welcomed their new baby into the world.  M and I shared a lot of similarities with our birth stories, so I felt like she was a sweet, kindred spirit.  J and M, your beautiful baby girl is very lucky to have such loving, devoted parents. It was an honor to document this special time for your family.  Thank you for graciously welcoming me into your home and your lives – I wish you only the very best!

Jay Pankhania - Simply stunning and beautiful pictures! Erin, you’ve done such an amazing job capturing the precious moments from our session day. We can’t thank you enough for these priceless photos

Welcome Little One | Los Angeles Newborn Photographer

I had the pleasure of photographing adorable Baby S when he was just days old – isn’t he handsome!  His parents were so kind, easy-going, and really wonderful to work with.  Baby S is already incredibly cherished and loved by his mama and daddy, so I am certain they will be amazing parents.  As you will see in some of the images below, they have had a lot of parenting practice already with their lovable dogs.  I absolutely love the image of Baby S being protected by his “siblings.”  Thank you, A and S, for graciously welcoming me into your home and for the honor of documenting this magical time in your lives.  You have a handsome, precious, little guy!  Congratulations!
