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 email@example.com or click on the contact form at the top of this page. I look forward to hearing from you! Check out my recent work at my FACEBOOK page!
Every little girl dreams of being a Mermaid…. I have been photographing this adorable little girl’s, Arielle, birthday portraits for the past 3 years. It’s fun documenting her growth and watching her become prettier and prettier every year!! Arielle’s mom also never ceases to amaze me with her creative ideas. Since Arielle was having the Little Mermaid themed birthday party, her mom wanted to have a Little Mermaid photo session at the beach. She had a clear vision and I found this high quality mermaid tail online and scouted an awesome location in Manhattan Beach… we have been planning this session for a month and it was so awesome to finally make it happen! Arielle looked like a real princess mermaid! Isn’t she the cutest little mermaid?
Happy 3rd birthday, Arielle, and thanks for making this a magical mermaid photo session – my favorite one of this summer!!! I can’t wait to photograph you again in the future!
Enjoy this beautiful Little Mermaid~!

Meet Baby Quinn!! He was born early at 34 weeks and spent 11 days in the NICU. He was ready to come home and to have his newborn photo session! I really enjoyed meeting and photographing Quinn and his wonderful family. One of my favorite things about newborn photography is the opportunity to capture the relationships that matter the most. Seeing the love that this family has for their precious new addition is truly special. I love how the family portrait turned out! Do you see a heart shape? I am so honored that Baby Quinn will have these special images to see how excited his parents were to have him.
