Luka’s Newborn Session and Birth Announcement Photographs

One of the greatest compliments I can receive as a photographer is a recommendation from a previous client to family and friends. And this is exactly how Luka’s newborn session and birth announcement photographs came to be!

You see, about three years ago I had the pleasure of photographing this lovely mama’s niece and nephew. When her own son was born, she knew she wanted me to photograph her son. They traveled for almost an hour to get to my studio in Irvine, CA. What an honor!

Getting those perfect birth announcement photographs

On the way to the studio, sweet 10-day old Luka had a long nap. When they arrived he was wide-eyed and curious. We knew we wanted to capture sweet, sleepy newborn portraits, so we swaddled him tight, rocked him and waited patiently for him to fall asleep.

This is exactly why I allow 3-4 hours for newborn photography sessions. Plenty of time for feeding, rocking and calming your new bundle of joy. You’ll never feel rushed or stressed about getting the perfect birth announcement photograph when you’re with me.

You can schedule newborn sessions in two ways: baby only, or for baby and family. A baby and family session allows you to get the beautiful family portraits like the ones of Luka and his parents, below.

Because of the holiday season and my recent Santa portrait event, we were able to capture some sweet family Christmas portraits during the session as well. The family was able to share the joy of their baby’s first Christmas with their friends and family by sending out the customized birth announcement & holiday card in one – a beautiful birth announcement photo on one side and the family holiday photo on the other side.
