I’m so excited to share a gorgeous new product that I have hanging in my San Diego studio and available for my client’s walls!  This beautiful set is called the Heirloom Pebble Wall Gallery.  It features six gorgeous images printed on the highest quality cotton rag fine art paper.  The paper is 150 year lightfast and a much higher quality than photo paper.  The fine art paper is attached to wood blocks, that hang on your wall.  Baby’s initial in wood is included.  The good thing about ordering this gorgeous product, is that you will receive your digital files from the session, as a GIFT when you purchase this specific grouping.   (Presented files from the session only, contact us for details).

I am so proud of the offerings that I have procured for my clients.  I’m here to guide you and get beautiful heirloom quality art into your hands, that will be passed down to several generations.  Contact us to schedule your consultation today!

We love our return clients!  We photographed big sister a few years back, and we are excited that little brother has come into the studio for his newborn session!  All sessions are held in our beautiful Carlsbad Village newborn portrait studio.  We specialize in newborns, and Stacey has been photographing them for over eight years.  Baby will be in trained, professional hands.  We can’t wait to photograph your session!


Contact us for your newborn portraits early!  We accept a limited number of sessions each month, so its best to get on the calendar early!  Don’t hesitate to call us even if your baby has just arrived, as we can usually fit new clients in.  Our newborn studio is located in Carlsbad Village, and we do all of our newborn photography sessions at the studio.  We have a beautiful selection of props, baskets, bows and hats for baby to use during the session.  We can’t wait to work with you!

Welcome to Baby Z!


I will start off by saying that my little ones are not so little any longer.  They are 10 and 12, and although I love the older stage that they are in now I have to admit that I sometimes miss that they were once tiny.  Which is why I love being able to offer these gorgeous Motherhood Sessions in my Carlsbad studio.  I will be releasing dates for these Limited Edition sessions coming up in a few months.  I provide the outfits/gowns and outfits for babies up to one year old.  These nursing / breastfeeding sessions are best for babies under a year.  The little ones tend to be distracted as they get older.  Both of these sweet little ones were 8 months old.

Something about the all ivory set and babies bonding over breastfeeding with mom, is something that lasts for just a short time.  What an amazing time to capture through portraits!

Loved seeing this sweet family in the studio for their little guy’s newborn session.  He was such a great sleeper for me, and I’m in love with his newborn session images!

I loved working with smiley little London for her session. She came to me at three months old, and I love that we were able to get a nice selection of both awake and sleepy portraits. I’m so happy for this beautiful family!  There is a gorgeous album on the way to the family soon!

Newborn Safety Week

November 20, 2015

This week is Newborn Safety Week, in our newborn photography circles.  I wanted to share with my clients the measures that I take to make sure your baby is safe in the studio.  90% of the poses that I do in the studio are very safe with no risk involved; beanbag shots, and shots of baby in basket laying down surrounded by fluffy and pretty textures.  I do like to take bucket shots, and those to require extra safety steps.  I won’t put baby in this pose, unless his or her arms will easily get into position.  I can tell when they will, and when they won’t.  And if I’m not sure, I might attempt, but I will never let go of baby until I’m certain he or she is not going to move.  In this particular pose, I prefer to have a parent “point” with a finger, and support baby’s head.  I would rather edit out a hand than have baby startle and have an issue with safety.  So, there you have it – a before and after in one of my favorite baskets/props.
