Merry Christmas! Our first private santa sessions were so much fun!! Love seeing all these precious kiddos with Santa! We will definitely try to offer more sessions next year! Thanks to all the little ones, the parents and of course, Santa!
Sweet little Kamryn came back to see me for her tummy time session. Tummy time sessions are baby portrait sessions for babies usually between 3-5 months old who can comfortably laying on tummy and able to raise head and lift up with their arms. I was so excited to see Kamryn’s growth from her newborn session. You can see how tiny she used to be as a newborn baby at the very bottom of this blog post! As you can see in the following portraits, she was so happy throughout the session. She had such a sweet personality and the cutest little smile! I am glad that I was able to capture her first two teeth! She even showed me how she can roll over so well!
Here are few portraits from her newborn session – at 3 weeks old!
I had a great time photographing this gorgeous mom, Christine, before and after her baby girl arrived. Christine wanted to do the outdoor field maternity session and wear something cream colored. We met at this gorgeous field about an hour before the sunset and she chose to wear those two maternity dresses that I brought for her. I was thrilled to see how happy Christine was to see her maternity portraits and was honored that I was able to capture such an extremely exciting time in her life! Expectant-moms are always too busy doing things such as decorating the nursing room, doing loads of laundry to clean the newborns’ clothes, packing for their hospital stay, etc., to welcome their new baby, but why not pause and enjoy a maternity session and come away with memories to cherish what it was like at the start of your greatest adventure yet!

Newborn Studio Session
And sweet baby girl, Laila is here!! She came to visit me at 2 weeks new and was such a great model! Isn’t she ADORABLE? Her mom selected cream, blush pink, and aqua colors to use for her newborn session. She also wanted to incorporate the angel wings. I often get asked by my clients if they have to bring their own props. I provide EVERYTHING from headbands, wraps, blanket and other props to style each session based on the colors that they choose and their preferences.
Thank you, Laila’s family, for letting me capture these fleeting moments. I am glad that you all have these portraits to remember how tiny and curly Laila used to be. I look forward to seeing her grow!
I had so much fun capturing this couple’s maternity session at Walt Disney Concert Hall in Downtown Los Angeles 4 weeks before their new little girl arrived. These two are just sweet together. You can see in these photos how happy, excited and thrilled they are to be parents. It was definitely special to see how in love they are and witness their excitement for the arrival of their first child. Stay tuned for their newborn portraits!
Are you expecting a bundle of joy? Are you interested in a maternity session at Walt Disney Concert Hall in Downtown Los Angeles? Whether this is your first experience as an expectant mother, or your third time around, these 40 weeks are one of the most remarkable times in your life. The feeling of a new life growing inside them makes every new mother glow and shine. Cathy Murai Photography is located in the San Gabriel Valley in California and offers both studio and outdoor maternity sessions in the Los Angeles, California area, including but not limited to, Alhambra, South Pasadena, Pasadena, San Marino, San Gabriel, Rosemead, Arcadia, Glendale, La Canada, Altadena, Monrovia, Burbank, Torrance, Palos Verdes, etc.. The best time to schedule your maternity session is around 28-34 weeks, so that you can show off your beautiful big belly. However, if you carry small or gain little weight, I recommend you to wait until 36-38 weeks. Your session may be just individual portraits of you or include your spouse/partner and/or your kids, including pets. Clients are welcome to use our maternity gowns during the sessions. To book a session, please email Cathy at firstname.lastname@example.org or click on the contact form at the top of this page. I look forward to hearing from you!
