Orange County Newborn Photographer | Long Beach, CA

Hello dears,

I’d LOVE to introduce you all to sweet baby Luna! Her mama and I had scheduled a Maternity Session a few weeks before her arrival, but Luna was in charge and didn’t let us. She put her mama on bed rest and decided she wanted a Newborn Session with me instead, which I was totally okay with! We did Luna’s Newborn Session at her home in Long Beach, CA.

We had lots of fun at the Session, especially adding sweet family mementos.  One of the quilts we used was passed down from generation to generation and is about 100 years old. We also used another warrior blanket that was pretty special to mama. I love customizing my sessions to make each and every one of them extra special!

Isn’t Luna precious? She gave me lots of amazing smiles and did such a good job. Can’t wait to see her grow up throughout the years.

Are you currently expecting or just had a baby? Call me! I’d LOVE to photograph your Newborn Session! I travel all over Orange County and love doing in-home newborn sessions. No need to travel to me, I come to you!

XOXO,
Milana

Fresh 48 | Orange County Hospital Baby Photographer

Hello there,

I am so excited to share this session with you all! 7 years ago, when I still lived in Atlanta, GA, I had the pleasure of photographing my very first birth! It was the birth of my cousin-in-law’s baby, Riessa. It was my first time and I wasn’t so sure about it in the beginning, but then once I actually had a chance to photograph that day, I was in loooove! I got what we birthtogs call, “the birth high” and even got “baby fever” in the process, haha. I decided in that moment that I must photograph more births in my future. And that I did!

Fast forward 7 years, my family and I decided to take a month off this summer and travel across the country with our kids. We stayed a few weeks in Georgia and during this time, Riessa’s little baby brother, Wesley, decided to make an appearance! His guess date was still 1 month away, but baby Wesley was apparently ready to meet us! Of course, I’d like to think that he just wanted me to capture his freshness at the hospital and that’s why he made his appearance so early :)

Meeting Wesley was so amazing and I was so excited to photograph him! BUT..the icing was on the cake was definitely seeing Riesa loving on her baby brother! I got so emotional remembering the day I photographed Riessa’s birth and how my love for photographing fresh babies was born on that day. It was definitely a super sweet moment for me!

This is why I do what I do. Congratulations to the Howell family on your newest addition and welcome to the world Wesley Franklin!

If you’re considering having your birth photographed, do it! I promise that you won’t regret it! If you’re still not sure about the whole process, but still want your baby photographed in the hospital, then I suggest a Fresh 48 Session for you! I love being an Orange County hospital newborn photographer! It’s so fun having those fresh moments photographed while you and your baby are still at the hospital, but omitting the actual labor and delivery photos. Please let me know how I can help capture these sweet moments for you!

XOXO,

Milana

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

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

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!

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.

Lennox Newborn Session | Orange County Newborn Photographer

Hi loves!

I’m excited to share baby Lennox Gray’s Newborn Session with you all! He is the adorable son of my amazingly talented photographer friend, Amber, with Naturally Newborn. Amber invited all of her photog friends to come to her studio and play with her baby. We just went crazy with not only posing him and taking photos of him, but snuggling him too. It was so much fun!

Lots of photographers joined in on this session and helped out with posing and picking out props and outfits. It was definitely a group effort! What makes these photos different than my normal work is studio lighting. Amber’s studio is set up for studio lights vs natural light like I normally use. It’s definitely different, challenging and a whole new territory for me. One day, I might switch to studio lighting, but for now, I’m enjoying my natural light.

Every time we have a photographer friend have a baby, we get together and have a “playdate” with posing and shooting. We always have a blast. I have a few more I’ll be sharing soon, so stay tuned! Newborn photographers go crazy for babies, especially if they are babies of our dear friends.

If you are in need of a Newborn photographer, please don’t hesitate to contact me. I would LOVE to help you!

XOXO,

Milana

August Rose Newborn Session | Orange County Newborn Photographer

Hi friends,

Meet beautiful August Rose! Isn’t she as precious as her name? I think so! Her mama, aunties, grandma, and I had so much fun together! Her sweet grandma made the beautiful bows for August Rose’ session and mommy and aunties had a blast with all of the fresh flowers. They had an idea they wanted to do with the flowers and we made it come to life.

Every newborn session I photograph is different. I customize each photoshoot depending on the colors the parents choose for me to use. The shoot can be only of the baby or can also include siblings, parents and even pets. And parents can always add special requests and their own mementos such as special blankets or stuffed animals.

Are you currently expecting? If so, please consider photographing this precious time in your newborn’s life. I love being an Orange County newborn photographer and I would be honored to help you! Contact me today for more information.

With love,

Milana
