It was so wonderful meeting this sweet family, expecting baby number two in just a few short weeks! Their little girl was so adorable, and mommy coordinated outfits perfectly! We didn’t know there would be such gorgeous golden flowers to match baby’s dress!  Gown by Chicaboo and available in the studio for mommies to wear!

I loved working with sweet little Finn at the San Diego newborn portrait studio for his newborn session. I always ask parents if they have any special requests or themes, and mom said his nursery was “Jungle” theme. So I had to make him into a little lion of course! So sweet!

So in love with a new gown that has come into the studio!  Who are my Rainbow Moms out there?

A “rainbow baby” is a baby that is born following a miscarriage, stillbirth, neonatal death or infant loss.  In the real world, a beautiful and bright rainbow follows a storm and gives hope of things getting better. The rainbow is more appreciated having just experienced the storm in comparison.

Book your session with Lovely Baby Photography… you’ll have access to use of my entire gown collection (over 50 gowns).

This gorgeous gown is made by Chicaboo. If you are a photographer and are interested in this gown, you need to contact Chicaboo! Her designs are amazing and affordable! This is a version that we tested out, and she has done some changes to the final design. Excited to share the final design once its done!

I am so excited about these gorgeous images of two moms in new gowns that I have added to my collection.  This is the Grace gown, and I have it in eight colors for my clients to use!  I am so excited to have almost 60 stunning gowns for my clients to use during maternity sessions.  Thank you to Chicaboo  and Jill Stewart (makeup) for working with me to create these images.  I love shooting beautiful mamas to be!  Just a few images for now!

Loved working with darling little Kenna!  Look at these cheeks!  I love that my clients can come to my San Diego area studio (located in North County, Carlsbad, CA) for their session.  I take all of the work out of the session for you so that you can sit back and watch your baby’s portraits being created.  They are only tiny newborns for such a fleeting short time.  Contact us to book your session!
