Manhattan Beach Photographer Specializing in Newborn, Baby, Kids, Family; Cake Smash and Maternity Photography
Our Manhattan Beach, California photography studio specializes in newborn baby photography, family photo sessions, baby's first birthday cake smash portraits, candid maternity, children's pictures, twins photos and event photography. In 2015 we were voted the best photographer in Los Angeles by Mommy Nearest for our full-service studio experience.
Our maternity and newborn photographer, Erika, loves to go on location when capturing a couple's pregnancy portraits. There are many great natural locations in Manhattan Beach for these maternity photos such as the Manhattan Beach Pier and the surrounding beaches. Polliwog Park is also a great place if you would like a little greenery in the background of your location portraits. If it is a more private experience you would like for your belly photography, we can also capture your pictures at our Manhattan Beach studio. Our full service photo studio has all the maternity fabric wraps and pregnancy gowns for your sexy maternity photography.
At our Manhattan Beach portrait studio we also specialize in newborn photography. Our professional baby photographer captures these precious photos five to ten days after babies are born. We are a big fan of the Anne Geddes style of photography and love to bring a little humor into our newborn photos - especially when we photograph twins. We are a full service photography studio and provide all of the props and outfits during the photo session.
We also love to capture the portraits of babies over the age of six months, as well as first birthday cake smash photography and kids and children's portraits. For the first birthday photography, we have partnered with SusieCakes for all of our amazingly decorated birthday smash cakes. First birthday sessions are best captured by our Manhattan Beach Baby Photographer, Leah at our portrait studio since the cakes can make quite a mess!
Family photography is also our specialty, and in addition to shooting them in studio, we also like to go out on location in Manhattan Beach. When we are outdoors for the photos, we love to let the kids run, play and be themselves so that we can capture unique and candid photos that show true emotion and personality. We are always very busy starting in August with holiday card family photography and our full-service studio has a staff designer who creates unique and custom holiday cards for our families.
If it is event photography of your child's birthday party, a baptism or any special party - we do that too! Our specialty is capturing those candid moments between you and your friends plus beautiful photos of those important cake, party favors, decorations and other details we know you spent a lot of time creating.
