Huntington Beach Newborn Photographer ~ Baby Angelina

Hello,

Hope you all are doing fabulous. This post is a bit late, I’m still catching up blogging from my summer sessions. I met sweet baby Angelina when she was just 14 days new. She was too funny. She LOVED being wrapped in my warm, cozy and colorful wraps and refused to be naked. I don’t blame her, I’d want to be cozy for my shoot too!

Ultimately, the baby is the boss. I like to go with the flow and do whatever the babies like to do. If for instance, the baby does not want to be on his/her back, then I don’t push it and move it. If the baby refuses to lie on his/her tummy, I alter positions. But no baby has ever said no to my wrapping skills, that’s for sure!

Ohhh, fun fact! Baby Angelina was born on 4th of July! Isn’t that so cool? Check out the last photo of the super cute outfit mama picked out just for her little American girl :)

I love capturing In-home Newborn Sessions, especially in the Huntington Beach area. If you’re currently pregnant and expecting, or just had your baby, please contact me right away. I recommend booking as soon as you are able to ensure I can fit your baby into my schedule. I would LOVE to be your Newborn Photographer!

HUGS,

Milana

Orange County Milestone Photographer

Hello dears,

This summer has been amazing! I’ve been pretty busy shooting and editing, but left lots of time to spend with my loves. We recently took an amazing cross-country trip for 3.5 weeks and got to explore 18 states! So fun! Can’t wait to do it again, but not anytime soon, hehe.

Now, I’d love to share this sweet boy’s Milestone Session with you all. I photographed sweet baby Jeevan when he was only 10 days new and now I had the pleasure of photographing his Sitter Session this summer. He has grown up so much in just 1/2 a year. His parents wanted to wait until he could sit up on his own and it was the most perfect time to document this session for him. We used a few of the same props from his Newborn Session, such as the little bear, the hat he was wearing and sitting on the Dhol.

Jeevan also wore a cute romper that my talented friend Jami Olesh with Dime A Daisiee made in a Newborn size and then in a 6month size. Check out her Etsy shop, she’s exteremely talented!  I’m already looking forward to his 1 year Session in December! Stay tuned.

Enjoy the photos below of Jeevan and his sweet family. If you’d like to check out this Newborn Session, you can view it here.

XOXO,

Milana

Orange County Newborn Photographer

Hello,

I wanted to take a moment to say hello and introduce myself. My name is Milana and I’m an Orange County Newborn Photographer. I LOVE everything about babies. I love photographing when babies are still in their mommy’s tummies, when they are being born, and of course weeks following their birth as well.

If you are currently expecting or just had your baby, please consider hiring a professional photographer to document such a special time in your life! Of course, you can take photos yourself, but nothing beats the quality of professional photos. I have spent years studying under other photographers, taking workshops, learning all about proper safety techniques, purchasing and using only professional equipment, collecting the cutest props and perfecting my posing.

I am an on-location photographer, which means I come to YOU! I travel all over Orange County and basically set-up a mini studio in your home. I talk to you in advance about your session and get an idea of your taste, color preferences and etc. and customize your Newborn Session to your liking! I bring beds, baskets, backdrops, blankets, wraps, teddy bears and etc. with me and you don’t have to do a thing, except provide me with a baby of course :)

I don’t only photograph the baby, but love doing family photos as well. You certainly don’t have to, but I encourage parent photos. If you have any other children, I’d love to include them in the family photos and also just sibling shots. I also welcome grandparents!

Contact me today, I’d LOVE to help you capture your baby’s perfect little face, fingers and toes. They grow up SO fast, capture them the way they are right now.

XOXO,

Milana

Orange County Family Photoshoot (OC Family Photographer)

Hello dears,

I LOVE the Chang family! I have photographed them 3 years in a row and I really LOVE watching their sweet kids grow! Aren’t they just adorable? 2 perfect little girls and the most handsome little boy. They are so well behaved and have the BEST smiles!

Every year, their mama and I chat to find the most perfect spot for their session. She’s very creative with her ideas and It’s so much fun! They always use the photos for their holiday cards too and it’s so sweet. I can’t wait for our next session together!

The Chang Family knows how important it is to capture their sweet little babies at this age, at least once a year. They just grow up soooo fast!!!

When was the last time you had your family professionally photographed? Let me take care of that for you! I travel all over Orange County and would LOVE to capture your sweet family just the way they are. Call me today to book your session and get on my calendar!

XOXO,

Milana

In Home Newborn Session (OC Newborn Photographer)

Hi!

I love growing families and seeing them come back to me again and again is such a blessing and I truly feel so honored! I photographed this sweet family’s first newborn, Aberdeen, about 3 years ago and I was so excited to photograph her little baby brother!

Aberdeen is such a great big sister to her brother Canaan and it’s so fun to see how big she’s gotten over the years. Just like with the first session, I drove to their home to do the newborn session, only this time it was a different house. Doing in home newborn sessions really helps the families to stay comfy and relaxed during their photoshoot, especially with kids. I love it!

If you’d like to see how much baby Aberdeen has grown, check out the last photo in this blog post, she’s holding her newborn photo. And here’s her blog for your viewing pleasure: Baby Aberdeen.

If you’d like to have an in home Newborn Session, contact me today! I’d love to help capture these sweet memories for you and your family. Your children will thank you one day!

XOXO,

Milana

Huntington Beach Family Session | OC Family Photographer

Hello there,

Photographing families is so important and I absolutely love it! The Erickson family was just so sweet and perfect. For Mother’s Day, the son and daughter of the mama in the middle gifted her a Family Session. They gave her a beautiful frame and wrote in the location and date of the family session. Mama was of course super excited and couldn’t wait! Oh and mama brought her own sweet mama with her, and both he daughter and son brought their significant others also. We did lots of big group photos and also broke them up into smaller groups as well.

We met up at Huntington Beach pier and did photos in a few different spots before heading down to the beach for the sunset photos. We had such a great time and I really enjoyed getting to know this super nice family. I know these photos are super special to them and will be treasured for years and years to come.

How often do you have photos done of your family? I hope you do them pretty often, it’s so important to capture our loved ones! I personally have my own family photos done twice a year. I know it’s a lot of work, but we always have a lot of fun and I know my kids and their kids will thank me one day!

If you’d like your family photographed, please contact me today. I would LOVE to help you! I photograph families all over Orange County, CA, and Huntington Beach is one of my favorite spots! Plus, beach family sessions are just so much more fun!

Hugs,

Milana

Beach Family Session | OC Family Photographer

Hello dears,

I love photographing beach family sessions! And this family in particular is so adorable! I photographed their Newlywed Session in their bridal attire at the same beach less than a year ago and this time we were back with their sweet little boy!

We had so much fun chasing him around the beach! I love when families like my work enough to come back to me again and again. And the best part? I get to watch families grow! It’s such a rewarding experience. I love being a photographer so much and I’m so lucky to have found this passion. I know not everyone in life gets an opportunity to do what they love.

If you’d like your family photographed, either at the beach, park, your backyard or another favorite place, please contact me today! I’d LOVE to help you! I photograph beach family sessions all over Orange County. Don’t let these sweet moments pass you by, let me save these precious memories not just for you, but for your children and their children!

XOXO,

Milana

Owen Newborn Session | Orange County Newborn Photographer

Hello,

I wanted to share baby Owen’s Newborn Session with you all. I photographed him in the comfort of his home in Irvine, CA just a few weeks ago. His mom and dad were so proud of him, as they should be. He was such a good baby! He slept during most of his photoshoot and let me play with him. Oh and let’s not forget all of the gorgeous smiles he flashed for me. I was so happy!

I love traveling to my client’s homes for Newborn Sessions. It is a lot more work hauling my props and equipment, but it’s totally worth it. Makes it so easy on new parents and even when they have older children as well. I talk to the parents in advance to find out their style and color choices and I customize each session depending on their needs and wants. Pretty cool, huh? I think so :)

If you are currently expecting or just had your baby, please don’t hesitate to contact me. I’d love capture your beautiful baby at this stage, they are only this small for such a short period of time. You’ll forget those sweet baby toes when they are all grown up. Contact me today!

Tony + Sovy Engagement (Orange County Engagement Photographer)

Hi loves,

I’m so excited to share this BEAUTIFUL Engagement Session with you all! About a year ago, I photographed Tony and Sovy’s Suprirse Proposal on a gondola! It was sooooo beautiful and magical and ohhh so romantic! I mean, come on, he proposed on a GONDOLA people! I photographed the proposal from land, while they were on the gondola on the water of course. It was pretty darn cool! But don’t take my word for it, you can check out their proposal for yourself here!

And now this year, they wanted to do a proper Engagement shoot where they can both dress up nicely, have outfit changes, a picnic and bring props. We had so much fun together! We just roamed around and Tony and Sovy just kept hugging and kissing and looking so in love, my camera was properly mad at me because of how much I used it, hehe. I was definitely trigger happy. Ohhh and the best part, I get to photograph their Wedding at the end of the year! Excited doesn’t come to justify how I feel! And I know I’m getting carried away, but one day, I’ll get to photograph their gorgeous babies!!!! Weeee!

Anyway, sorry for rambling on. Once you see these images, you will know why this Engagement Session was so much fun!!! Enjoy!

Oh and if you are thinking about proposing to your sweetheart, don’t forget to contact me to help you capture the special moment! I love photographing Surprise Proposals and also Engagement Sessions throughout orange County, CA.

Oliver Newborn Session | Orange County Newborn Photographer

Hello dears,

I had another fun session with my photog friends! Our good friend and fellow photographer, Nicole, had the most perfect little squish. His name is Oliver Ryan and he did so good at his session! I know mama was proud of him. We all got together at Amber’s studio in Santa Ana, Naturally Newborn, and just had a ball. We had fun posing him and playing dress up with him. I seriously wish I could do this everyday, hehe.

Earlier this year I photographed Nicole’s gender reveal at a baseball field. Nicole and her husband are big baseball/softball lovers, so for the gender reveal Nicole pitched a ball to hubby and when the ball hit the bat, blue stuff scattered all over the field. Their family went absolutely crazy and it was such a fun session to be a part of! They both REALLY wanted a boy and they got their wish with sweet baby Oliver.

Big thanks to my friend Amber with Naturally Newborn for letting us play in her studio and for styling and posing the baby. Also a special thank you to my friend Crisanta with FreeBird Proppe Shoppe for the amazing backdrops, my friend Christina with Dream Baby Design for the gorgeous bed she made and last but not least, my other friend Cristina with The Buzy Bee Studio for the beautiful sleepy hats we used. I am pretty lucky to know all of these incredibly talented ladies!

Congratulations again to Nicole and Brandon! Enjoy the photos below.
