I’m Heather. I’m a a newborn photographer here in North San Diego County. I live in Oceanside with my husband, our two kids, and a crazy poodle named Maddie. We’ve lived here for over 11 years and love being a part of this community.
I am passionate about newborn photography and still pinch myself every time I work with a baby in the studio. I hope I bring my love of this work to every photo shoot. You can follow me for a behind-the-scenes look at my sessions on instagram!
Since starting my business in 2017, I’ve photographed 150+ local newborns. All my poses were learned from experienced educators in the photography community. I also belong to associations – National Association of Professional Child Photographers and Professional Photographers of America – which hold their members to strict ethical and professional standards.
Your baby’s safety and comfort take top priority during our session. I’ve completed safety coursework related to working with newborns in the studio. While all my poses are safe, I never promise specific shots, as I don’t force babies into any positions they don’t seem comfortable in. Any unsupported pose is done with an assistant present or using Photoshop.
I take precautions to keep your little one healthy, as well. I always use hand sanitizer before touching your newborn. I wash wraps and backdrops in gentle, fragrance free detergent. I have a current Tdap booster vaccination and negative TB test. I enforce some of the strictest COVID-19 policies in the industry.
