Adorable sweet babies
Remember the sweet squishiness of your baby for years to come with baby-led posed photography. I'll settle your baby into sleep and then gently soothe them into poses that feel natural and comfortable for them. Poses can be both naked or wrapped, depending on your preference.
Capture the comfort of home
Lifestyle newborn photography sessions capture the fresh newness of your baby right in your bay area home. I'll photograph your loving interactions with your baby as well as special details you've prepared for them in your home. Playful and silly sibling games will result in sweet images that you'll love!

Baby Phoebe had the sweetest little nursery. Her parents were so excited to have their baby at home, and she was a joy to photograph at this lifestyle newborn session. Look at how adoringly she she looks at her mama!

Baby Marina received lots of love from her big sister! Toddlers tend to be very energetic at the sessions, so we have some fun to capture sweet moments, and then release them to do more fun things (like snack and screen time!).

Baby Dylan was everything fun about newborn sessions with older babies. Most fun was that he was old enough to give us real smiles! I was also able to capture eyes wide open eye contact, but he was still young enough to put to capture sweet, sleepy moments.

Mama, when I walk into your home to photograph your new baby, I want you to know I'm here for you. When I ask you how you are, I mean it. Those first few months with a new baby are some of the most emotional ones of your life, and however you're feeling is ok. No matter how you're experiencing new motherhood, you've got this, mama. And I, as your Bay Area newborn photographer, am here to capture the beauty of it.
"A baby will make love stronger, days shorter, nights longer, bankroll smaller, home happier clothes shabbier, the past forgotten and the future worth living for." - unknown
Let's start the conversation about your bay area newborn photography session! Fill out my contact form to introduce yourself. Be sure to let me know your due date! I'll be in touch as soon as possible to go over all the details with you.
1. Say Hello
2. Let's book!
Babies don't usually come on their due dates, but I do base my calendar on their due date. To book, you'll pay the retainer fee and sign my contract, and then I'll reserve your due date on my calendar. Baby may arrive sooner or later, and whenever they arrive, I'll be ready! Once baby arrives, you'll notify me ASAP and we'll set an exact date on a weekday morning that works for both of us.
About two weeks before your due date, we'll meet (usually over Zoom) to plan all the details of your session. From wardrobe, to timing, we'll knock out all of the details together. This meeting is so helpful to make sure we're on the same page and prevent so many back-and-forth emails.
3. ask me Anything
When I enter your home, the very first thing I'll do is wash my hands - safety first! I'm trained in newborn safety, so you can rest assured that I will take good care of your new baby through all of the poses, and wrapping them up snug. If there is an older sibling, I like to start with photos that include them, so that they are free to other activities while I finish up with photos of baby on their own.
4. Your newborn Sesssion
The most exciting part of the process is your gallery reveal! Two weeks after your session, you'll receive a gallery that includes a slideshow to view your gorgeous images. You'll be able to make your selections right from there, including purchasing wall art, albums and prints. If you'd like help designing any of those things, I can help!
5. your Gallery Reveal
Digital packages start at just $1000
To book a session, a $300 retainer and signed contract are required. You'll order your digital images, prints and products after you view your images in your online gallery about two weeks after your session. Your retainer will be put towards your purchase. Please inquire for detailed pricing information.
She can do it all and makes taking photographs a fun and memorable experience (even when your newborn won’t sleep or your toddler doesn’t want to take photos). Laura is so patient and kind and makes you feel so comfortable while taking your picture. Her new photobook and canvas offerings are also beautiful and of such high quality. I just cannot recommend Laura enough!
maternity, newborn and family sessions
Laura was also great at calming my baby down! She handled my daughter as if she was family, super sweet and loving! Thank you Laura for such a great experience!
Laura made the whole process so easy. She met us there and knew of some places there with great trees and light that we walked to before doing pictures on the beach. She knew the perfect time to be there to get the perfect light. She was wonderful with my 6 and 8 year old boys. She was also very helpful with outfit ideas and poses. We got our pictures recently and they are amazing! I would highly recommend Laura!
The whole process was seamless. After selecting a date and location, Laura sent over some links on outfit ideas that she thought would work well with our location. She also took the time to get to know details about my children before the session so she could easily engage with them. The day of the session, she offered suggestions for different poses, but also fed off the energy of my two little kids.
Laura’s service and product was amazing from the beginning to the end. One important service that makes her business stand out is that she helps you to setup the photos at your home. She helps to design your wall with recommendations of print sizes. If this service wasn’t provided I’m not sure how long it would take for us to take the time to print out the pictures let alone figure out what to print. She really takes care of you from the beginning to the end.
