Each baby is different. I may rock, or sway with your baby, rub his eyebrows, use a white noise machine, etc. I want to make sure the energy in the room is always relaxed and calm, with lots of trust. They will occasionally cry- please know that this never bothers me and I expect it. It’s hard figuring out a body when you just got one a short time ago! I will use a variety of soothing techniques to make your baby feel safe, secure and warm. Baby will never be placed in an unsafe position and newborn safety is my top priority.
I have a very hands on approach to newborns and I am very comfortable handling them. I have three young children myself! This session is supposed to be a special experience for you and I don't want you stressed if the baby starts to cry. We have plenty of time allowed for your session. If we need to take a break to feed, walk, rock, etc. we can do that.
Ultimately, I want you to enjoy this experience as much as I enjoy capturing it. Let me give you the gift of being in the moment with each other, and show you what that love looks like for your family. Read More

Maria Luisa works with my husband and her family were the first ones I shot when I moved back home to Fresno last year. Since then she’s been the kindest supporter of my little business and a sweet friend. Damien makes me work hard for his smiles, but when they come, they light up everyone’s face with his happy eyes! We traveled out of Fresno to Reedley to take pictures at Hillcrest Pumpkin Patch. We had so much fun wandering around the pumpkins, corn path, Christmas trees, and ending with a train ride. I had so much fun with them, like I always do! Read More
