Needless to say, when I found out I had an affection and talent for photography, children and newborn photography was first on my list of people to work with. Furthermore, having worked with children I am also aware of the safety concerns many parents have. I've taken many in-person workshops and mentoring sessions, as well as online courses in newborn safety. It is imperative to me to practice safe newborn posing techniques and provide both parents and baby a comfortable and enjoyable session.
Newborn Photography Props and Outfits
When hiring Studio Freyja to capture your infant baby pictures you also gain access to the many newborn photography props and outfits I've gathered throughout the years. As you notice when going through my portfolio my style is very minimalistic and organic. I believe the baby should be the star of the show, and shouldn't disappear in bulky outfits and elaborate prop setups. Instead, I believe in using newborn specific outfits and props that highlight your newborn and showcases how small and precious he/she is. The headbands, hats and outfits that you find in my studio all come from specific newborn photography vendors who specializes in creating and sewing newborn specific outfits. They are small and dainty and will highlight your babys features as it deserves.
A Newborn Photography Studio in San Diego, CA
Studio Freyja's Newborn studio is located in the La Bodega Gallery, close to downtown San Diego, CA. With a small and intimate studio my goal is to provide each family and set of parents with a comfortable and relaxing newborn photography session. Wether you are a first time parent, or this is your fourth child, an infant is always a precious gift.
The studio is setup to give you a perfect view of the newborn photography portion of the studio. Here you'll find comfortable couches where you can sit back and relax. You can choose to either watch while I document your baby's tiny features, read a magazine, or even take a nap.
I have always loved working with children and grew up baby sitting for several families. I interned at my local childcare center, as well as worked as an Au Pair in Germany for a summer. I also spent two years working as a childrens swim teacher before a sensitivity to chlorine forced me to step out of the pool.
About your Newborn Photographer
My name is Johanna and I grew up in Sweden. I spent 9 years living in Minnesota (where I met my husband) before relocating with my little family to San Diego, CA. Family is very important to me and is the driving force behind my business. Maybe it's because my parents and siblings all still live in Sweden and I don't get to see them very often. Either way, it has definitely made me appreciate the time we have together. It also highlights the importance of having images around to constantly be reminded of how lucky I am to have them in my life.
My husband and I have yet to take the step into parenthood. Instead we enjoy lazy walks on the beach with our fur baby Gerrard. He is an extremely spoiled, but extremely adorable, English Bulldog, and my little baby. I know that when the time comes for us to be blessed with a human baby, I want to include Gerrard in our newborn pictures. As it is, you'll notice that the newborn studio is dog friendly. Hint - if you have a fur baby at home that you want to include in your newborn pictures, please feel free to bring them along. The only requisite is that they're well behaved as the studio is on the smaller, more intimate side. I can't wait to meet you and work with you and your growing family!
