The idea to do the session was big brother's because he thought they should capture the time that his mom was "so big" =) 

He was absolutely right - it is so important to document these incredibly special times to preserve family history. We of course had to get a few portraits of this proud big brother:

The whole family was really excited about their upcoming arrival and it absolutely shows in these photographs:

We love this beautiful mom and sons moment:

We feel honored that we were able to provide these memories for this family!

Baby Boy Declan http://www.zoetic.photography/blog/2018/3/baby-boy-declan This is baby boy Declan! He was 2 months new, so we were able to get some fantastic expressions and wide-open eyes, ready to take in the world. He was adorable and had a lot of fun watching his mommy trying to get him to smile! 

We were honored to commemorate Declan's arrival and help his family celebrate their new addition =)

Welcome Eli, Baby #3!!! http://www.zoetic.photography/blog/2018/2/welcome-eli-baby-3 We recently had the opportunity to photograph the third addition to this family! We previously photographed big sister Iris, and now it was her turn to be the older sibling to her new baby brother Eli =) This baby was a DREAM to work with! He slept the entire time and had no problem letting us pass him around and pose him...

We started out with the family portion of the session and got some beautiful moments:

Big brother Aaron was so proud to be posing with his sister and new brother!

Then it was time for Eli to shine:

He even took a moment to open his eyes and ponder existence for a bit:

We are so happy we were able to provide more memories for this growing family! Baby Eli is lucky to have such a loving family to grow up with!

For the Love of Family http://www.zoetic.photography/blog/2017/12/for-the-love-of-family Family is at the heart of all of our photography. Whether it's welcoming a new little one with a newborn session, capturing the beauty of pregnancy with a maternity session, celebrating the milestone moments of a child, or getting the whole family together to document the newest chapter, it all comes down to memorializing the ones that are closest to our hearts and create the very essence of home. This gives every session we do an underlying current of such sacred importance that we will always consider it an honor and a privilege to present these galleries to our wonderful clients =)

 

This beautiful family has the cutest little girls who had a blast together! We've photographed them before when their youngest was just a little baby, and it was incredible to see how much she's grown!

They are always so fun to photograph and we really hope we get the opportunity to do it again!

The Holidays Are Here! http://www.zoetic.photography/blog/2017/11/the-holidays-are-here We love it when the holidays roll around and families start wanting to memorialize the year with some photographs! We've been photographing this family since little Ricky was a newborn. Sadly, they moved away from San Diego but they still come back to enjoy the city and document the current chapter of their lives =) 

Ricky has always been a great little model, but this session took it above and beyond and he is definitely ready for the big time. Check it out:

See? He rocked it! We always love photographing this family and hope they keep coming back year after year...

King Cole http://www.zoetic.photography/blog/2017/10/king-cole Photographing this family was a joy and a privilege! They chose the Bun and Bundle package, so first we had a maternity beach session. It is always fun to see the before leading up to the after:

When they arrived for their newborn session, we finally got to meet little Cole! Mom was beaming with love at her new addition to the family:

Next came the proud papa with his son:

Cole is a lucky baby to have such adoring parents:

When it came time to photograph Cole by himself, he was not feeling sleepy at all so we captured all the eyes open photographs we could:

When he finally felt sleepy, we were able to capture some beautiful, classic moments:

This gallery will help this beautiful family forever remember their first days with their first born! We love getting to create these family heirlooms for our clients =)

We were really happy that we were able to memorialize this father son moment:

Jamey did so well posing for his newborn photos! Here are some highlights:

It's always nice to have a classic black and white photograph in the mix!

Welcome to the world, Jamey. We hope this gallery will always remind you of how much you're loved =)

Feel the Love http://www.zoetic.photography/blog/2017/7/feel-the-love One of the joys of being a photographer that works with families is the opportunity to see them grow and develop over time! Beginning with maternity, we see a couple excited about preparing for the role of parenthood. When we photograph newborns, we get to see brand new parents celebrating the arrival of their little ones. Photographing families is such a privilege because we get to see the pure happiness that evolves out of those early days of pregnancy, when the future was just a dream to a couple in love...

 

There is no better example than this gorgeous family!!! You can feel their love and happiness spilling out of every image =)

 

 

We would love to photograph your family and provide you with memories you can see and feel for a lifetime and beyond!!!

Declan's 1 Year Cake Smash http://www.zoetic.photography/blog/2017/5/declans-1-year-cake-smash We recently photographed Declan doing an awesome cake smash to celebrate his first birthday! We started out with some straight up GQ modeling.

Then it was on to the Smash!

Declan went right for it and had fun with it all the way to the end! He knew how to bring in his 1st birthday with style =)

Milestone Moments: Ricky's First Year http://www.zoetic.photography/blog/2017/2/milestone-moments-rickys-first-year We've watched this little guy's journey through his first year since he was a brand new baby! His family booked a newborn photography session with us and then the complete Milestone Moments package which includes the 3-month, 6-month, 9-month, and 1 year cake smash sessions =)

 

Here's little Ricky when he was a newborn:

We thought he looked pretty punk rock =P Next was our 3-month session:

He had such awesome expressions! Then came the 6-month session:

Such a cutie! At 9-months, he really started to look more like a toddler and less like a baby:

Clearly destined for the limelight... And then we finally came to his 1 year cake smash celebration!! We started the session off with a few outfits because cute:

When we introduced the cake into the picture, he wasn't quite sure what we wanted from him:

But he soon figured out that not only was he allowed to get really messy, but we were all encouraging it!! Life can be so confusing... It's so fun watching kids react to the cake - that's why these sessions are our favorite =)

 

It was such a pleasure and an honor to document the first year of Ricky's life. We hope this collection will always remind his family of how special his first 12 months were, and that it will show Ricky how loved he was right from the start!

The Bun and Bundle http://www.zoetic.photography/blog/2017/1/the-bun-and-bundle There are few things as rewarding for maternity and newborn photographers as our Bun and Bundle package! It allows us the opportunity to photograph expecting parents celebrating their pregnancy, and then when their little bundle finally arrives, we get to memorialize them in all their brand new glory with a beautiful newborn gallery =) 

 

We photographed this gorgeous couple a few months back who were anxiously awaiting their little girl, Serenity.

We were very excited to get to meet this precious little girl and create images that will forever help this loving family remember her arrival into their lives!

It's seriously amazing to meet the little person who was in their mommy's belly the last time we saw them. It is a constant reminder of how incredible life is, and how lucky we are to get to be involved in the stories of these blessed families and their exciting new adventure...

The Fantastic Fahlens http://www.zoetic.photography/blog/2016/11/the-fantastic-fahlens The holidays are the perfect time for families to create some beautiful photographic memories. With everything life has to throw at us, it's easy to let too much time go by before documenting these special chapters... Our dear friends, the Fahlens came out to San Diego to spend time with their families and we got the opportunity to photograph them on their youngest son's 2nd birthday!

 

In between group family shots, we captured a couple spontaneous moments that we absolutely love =)

It's so special to be able to provide families with these galleries that perfectly preserve gorgeous glimpses into their lives. Especially when they are dear friends =)

Sophia's One Year Cake Smash http://www.zoetic.photography/blog/2016/10/sophias-one-year-cake-smash We've known Sophia and her awesome family since they came in for her newborn session one year ago! We've loved the opportunity to see her grow up during her exciting first year =)

Here she is as an adorable brand new baby:

Then she came back for her 6 month session and mega-cuteness occurred! Here is the proof:

This one is from her 9 month session! By this time, she's a seasoned model and needed very little direction:

And finally, she reached the one year mark and it was time to break out the cake. But first, we photographed her looking incredibly cute. Because, you know, fairies are awesome =P See? 

And then it was time for her to have her very first cake! What proceeded was the cutest series of photographs to ever bless the internet:

Happy Birthday Sophia!!! We loved getting to watch her grow up and we hope we'll be able to keep photographing her through the years! #cakesmash #oneyearofcuteness

A Penny for Your Thoughts http://www.zoetic.photography/blog/2016/9/a-penny-for-your-thoughts Meet Penny, a beautiful newborn baby girl we had the pleasure to photograph! Her loving parents wanted our mini newborn photography package, so once they were settled in watching some Harry Potter on the TV, we got to work putting together a gorgeous gallery that would preserve Penny in all of her miraculous newness. She slept right through the session which allowed us to get these fantastic images:

Penny was also the first newborn to receive our complimentary baby birth announcement video we now include with every newborn photography session. Check it out!

We hope this video was a nice surprise for Penny's family! This gallery is such a perfect way to welcome this precious little girl into the world and help her family always remember her first days on the outside... =)

Family Vacation in San Diego http://www.zoetic.photography/blog/2016/8/family-vacation-in-san-diego We were recently contacted by a family from Iowa who were going to be having their first big family vacation and San Diego was going to be the destination! They wanted to capture the beauty of the ocean and the West Coast, so we took them to our favorite beach spot and photographed some gorgeous, memorable moments =)

Sunsets at the beach can be the most beautiful natural art with the moving reflections left behind by receding waves... It creates the perfect environment for a family to enjoy time together while appreciating their surroundings. This makes for good family photography!

These proud parents loved seeing the joy on their daughter's face as we snapped away, grabbing the photographs we needed to create portraits that would preserve these memories:

It was so much fun to see this little girl experiencing San Diego's beach for the first time!

This session was another opportunity to see that being a photographer is such an amazing way to use art as an effective service which contributes to the story of a family. Blending art and commerce is so often a point of contention and it's hard for artists to get to a place where they feel good about charging money for their creations. But photography is a unique venture that blurs the lines between creator and subject, and so tangibly and immediately benefits both. It's a privilege to work in an industry that has such emotional impact and value, where the more love and care you pour into the work, the more meaningful and important the end result is to those seeking the visual reminder of a time and place in their lives...

Remy's Arrival http://www.zoetic.photography/blog/2016/8/remys-arrival We recently had the distinct pleasure of photographing baby Remy and his wonderful parents who were very proud of their brand new bundle of joy! This family went with our Essential Collection package, which includes photographs with the family in addition to the solo classic newborn photography we love so much. We started out with the family portion of the session:

Both of Remy's parents are physicians and are enjoying their time off to spend with their baby boy! Here's Remy with his proud dad:

We love this gorgeous shot of a mother with her newborn son:

Then it was on to the newborn portion of the session! Dad settled in to take a nap on our couch, while Mom got to catch up on some TV, and we got to work. Parents really seem to appreciate the much-needed break they get while they're with us. They get to relax and know that we are doing what we do and taking the time it takes to get the shots we need. 

We loved this smiley shot we got of baby Remy. Such a great moment =) What do you think makes a newborn baby smile? Is it just biological comfort? Is it a memory? A dream? Whatever it is, there are few things that can bring as much pure joy to loved ones as a happy newborn, beaming with love...

There is something very special about a dad and his brand new daughter =)

Waverly is such a beautiful baby!!

Addison and Malia: A Tale of Two Twins! http://www.zoetic.photography/blog/2016/7/addison-and-malia-a-tale-of-two-twins We're so happy we finally got our chance to work with twins! It's tricky enough getting one baby to do what you want so we weren't entirely sure what to expect, but these beautiful girls were such a joy to work with =)

Meet Addison:

​And this is Malia:

​Before we met the girls, we were thinking it might be hard to tell them apart - but that was not the case at all! Not only is Addison quite a bit bigger than Malia, but she also has more hair so it was very easy to know who was who =) Look how beautiful they are all wrapped up and cuddling together:

​The girls were both so sleepy and cozy together that we were able to get these gorgeous poses:

​We finished the session with this beautiful basket set up:

We had such a great session with these girls, and we're so thankful our first twin experience was such a success! It's incredible to think that Addison and Malia will always have these photographs to look back on and see their beautiful and amazing first days of life. In the meantime, their family will have this stunning gallery to cherish as they welcome their gorgeous girls into the world =)

Beautiful Bailey http://www.zoetic.photography/blog/2016/6/beautiful-bailey ​A few weeks ago, we got to meet beautiful Bailey and her loving parents. Look at how happy she is with her daddy!

We love getting shots that reveal how small these brand new babies are! This one also shows just how loved she is:

We LOVE this next one - gorgeous simplicity:

Lovely AND cozy:

Bailey was such a good model, we were able to get some really great basket shots too!

It's always fun to think about how these galleries will be seen in the eyes of these babies when they grow up. I think it's safe to say that Bailey will see the love her parent's have for her and how celebrated she was when she made her entrance into their life and the world!

Little Liam http://www.zoetic.photography/blog/2016/5/little-liam We really LOVE this gallery. It was the first time we got to try out our new grey backdrop and it was the perfect family for it! Little Liam and his loving family came ready to take some incredible photographs. See how great they look?

Grandma wasn't even sure she wanted to be in the pictures, but we're so glad we convinced her because this shot of grandmother and grandson is BEAUTIFUL:

It was gorgeous shot after gorgeous shot with Liam all throughout his session. He's such a handsome newborn!

This gallery was rewarding to create and an honor to deliver to Liam's family. We hope these photographs will be something they can always look at to remind them how incredible it was to welcome Liam to the world and into their life!
