2017 in review - a new newborn photographer in San Diego, CA

A new newborn photography studio opened up in San Diego, CA during 2017

A lot has changed in the last 12 months. 12 months ago I was new to San Diego. My husband and I had packed our belongings together, grabbed our dog and two road trips from Minnesota to California we were finally home. Moving across country was, and still is, a really fun adventure. But with the move also came the challenge of moving my business. 

However, 12 months later, and Studio Freyja Newborns (previously operated under Johanna Kitzman Photography in MN) is up and running with a beautiful studio in downtown San Diego. It has been a whirlwind of a year but I've been so blessed to meet so many new families in this new city. I've had the pleasure of cuddling and photographing some of San Diego's cutest littles newborns. And I've also seen some of them grow up, take their first steps and laughing their little hearts out.
