Newborn: In-home session with 3 week old boy

This session warms my heart. I was invited to the home of the [K] family to photograph their sweet, 3-week old boy. He spent the first half of the session sleeping peacefully where we were able to do photograph those angelic, newborn poses. I love it when we can mold newborns into little bundles of joy. Half way through the session, little boy woke up and realized that there was a photography party happening around him! So he gave us adorable smiles and big round eyes to make sure he wasn’t missing out on any of the fun! Such a cutie personality 🙂

Love those cute baby expressions!

We set up a studio-type of backdrop to take the family photos. So precious!

We finished the session by having fun with some props. Dad particularly liked this green / nest look, so we were were able to get some adorable photos of baby boy in the nest.

And two pictures from the behind-the-scenes look of how the images were taken 🙂

If you’re interested in having a newborn session with me, please send me an email at, or fill out the contact form under “Contact Me” and I’d be happy to share more details with you. Looking forward to meeting your little bundle 🙂



I call myself a ‘people’ photographer, specializing in capturing the personalities of people through family, newborn and event photography. I’m originally German-Japanese and was raised embracing both cultures. I was raised in Japan and in many parts of Europe, until I finally settled in Los Angeles to call it my permanent home. My love for photography started at an early age. A fun hobby eventually turned in to a passion when I found joy in taking candid photos of my friends. Naturally, my love for photography turned in to a lifestyle and I was asked to photograph people’s milestones and celebrations. And so, my photography business was born in 2010.

There’s never a dull moment capturing three young children! We photographed the session at Eaton Canyon, a hiking trail in the mountains of Altadena, shortly past 5pm just before sunset, to catch the best light


Event: Barbie-themed Birthday Party

Capturing the essence of childhood wonderment, I had the delightful opportunity to photograph a Barbie-themed birthday celebration. From the moment I stepped into the venue, it was like stepping into Barbie’s dreamhouse – if Barbie
