Hello there! I’m glad you’re here. Today, I want you all to meet my sweet muse, Ella!

As a Bay Area newborn photographer, I love doing newborn sessions and capturing the early days of a new human and a new “family”. The only thing I love a tad more than a newborn sessions is doing “Sitter Sessions”. Sitter sessions are done during a baby’s first year but after they start sitting up unassisted. In addition to newborn photography, I also offer sitter sessions to capture your baby’s first year in photos. These photos will one day be your little one’s legacy. Something that not only will he/she look back on but even their grandkids will look at years from now!


Ella is every Bay Area newborn photographer’s dream come true! She is almost 7 months old and I had a great time capturing her gorgeous expressions during our session. Ella is a San Francisco Bay Area born baby but her sweet mum, dad and older brother Liam moved to the Bay Area from the east coast a little over a year ago. I met her mama Rachel through a Foster City moms group on Facebook. By the way, pls follow me on Facebook and Instagram for more updates and behind-the-scenes. Rachel was looking for someone to babysit their fur baby Lalo for a few days (who by the way, is the most beautiful and extremely well-behaved goldendoodle). Side note- Lalo is solely responsible for us taking the plunge and adding a puppy to our lives – but more on that later.

Ella’s big brother Liam is close to my son’s age.  Prithvi was excited to have Liam and Lalo as his friends. I first met Ella when she was a few months old and was instantly in love with her and her big blue eyes! She’s a very chill baby, always smiling and easily entertained by my shenanigans! As a Bay Area newborn photographer, I couldn’t stop myself from asking Rachel if I could photograph Ella and capture this milestone with a studio portrait session. We dressed her up in two gorgeous, handmade outfits. I work with some of the most talented newborn prop vendors in the industry. All my clients have full access to my studio wardrobe to choose from for their sessions.I’ve added some of Ella’s sweet images from the session below and I hope you love them as much as I do!
