San Marcos, Ca Baby Photographer: Baby Smiles

Anisa was an especially smiley baby. I caught at least six big smiles during her session which is unusual!

I usually hope to get one on camera, but sometimes the smiles come while you are still wrapping or posing, and sometimes babies don't smile at all during a session. While I can't "make" a baby smile, I can usually read the signs of when a smile is about to happen and hopefully capture it in a portrait for you.
Will your baby give us a smile? Maybe! But if not, maybe we will get a yawn (another favorite of mine) or some funny faces! Each baby's session us unique because each baby is unique! <3 Shelly

San Marcos, Ca Newborn Photography: STRETCH

This little stretch fest had me smiling! What a cutie, waking up and stretching and making all the faces. Do you say "Oh, big stretch!!!" every time a baby stretches? Yes, I do. Every. Single. Time.

Cake Smash Photographer: San Marcos, Ca

 I gotta tell you, cake smash photography is pretty fun! I love getting to see my newborn clients grow-up, and meeting new little almost toddlers as well.

Generally, I enjoy using light colored backdrops for cake smashes. It keeps everything light and bright and in a party mood. I provide the backdrop, simple decorations like a banner or bunting, and balloons! We work to coordinate colors and/or a theme you have in mind. My clients bring the cake and any extra decorations they would like included (like the big checkered #1 below). I have several cake stands and splash tubs as well.

I usually will take on no more than 3 cake smashes a month, so get in contact as soon as you can to reserve your babies spot and we can start planning your session!
