Organic & Natural
Newborns are my favorite subject to photograph and I find the opportunity to document new life oh-so-inspiring! The newborn stage is precious, and it is fleeting. In the whirlwind of sleepless nights and groggy days, your newborn images will become a treasured remembrance of this sweet and short-lived time.
My photographic style is a careful combination of candid photojournalism and fine art portraiture. My goal is to create more than pictures alone. My goal is to provide my clients with a visual record of the first days with their beautiful new baby, so that they can always remember what this time in their lives felt like.
My images are classic yet modern; think McGee & Co. meets photos of the people you love most in the world! I steer away from photography trends, forego the latest ‘fads’, and choose instead to create classic, natural-light images that have a timeless and carefree feel. I provide my clients with loose direction rather than stiff posing so that the natural movement and emotion of the moment shines through. By striking this delicate balance I create photographs that are fresh, light-filled, and natural.
All newborn sessions take place in my natural light Camarillo photography studio.
Serving the Los Angeles, Ventura County, and Santa Barbara areas.

“our newborn/family session came out beautifully!!”
Daniele has been taking our yearly family photos for the last three years and each time we are thrilled with how they come out! I’m always anxious about how my four year old will be during photos but each time Daniele makes it so easy and fun for us that she’s able to get the best shots of our family. This year we welcomed our second son and without a doubt I wanted Daniele to do our newborn/family session! Her studio is warm and welcoming. She did an amazing job with our newborn (he didn’t even wake up once!). Our newborn/family session came out beautifully!!

“when we received our newborn photos I cried tears of joy”
Daniele did our maternity and newborn photos and we couldn’t have had a better experience. Daniele made us feel so comfortable and well prepared for our maternity photos, and they came out beautiful. My favorite experience though, was with our son. Daniele’s studio is set up just for newborns, which made me feel relaxed as she payed special attention to the fine details that are required to make a newborn comfortable and cooperative. When we received our newborn photos I cried with tears of joy. They were better than I could have ever hoped for. We will definitely use Daniele again for family photos in the future.

“they are the most beloved photos I have”
If you are looking for a photographer to capture the most precious moments with your newborn, look no further and book a session now. We’ve had the pleasure of having Daniele capture each of our daughters’ newborn sessions and they are the most beloved photos I have. I look back at our now 16 month old's newborn photos and can’t believe how quickly the time has flown by. Now with our newborn, I love that we can compare the two. Daniele is incredibly talented and it shows when you receive the finished product. We will be repeat customers through the years!

Embrace that and play along…you’ll love the results!
Before your session Daniele will chat with you to make sure her studio is the perfect location for your newborn session. She'll make suggestions on what to wear for the best results (Hello, Pinterest!), and will offer advise on the best time of day for the session to take place. Newborn sessions are conducted mid-morning, as that is when lighting conditions are best in her studio. Newborn sessions tend to take a while and there will be plenty of time for feedings, diaper changes, and comforting baby. Daniele likes to allow plenty time so that the vibe of the session is relaxed and no one will feel rushed.

Newborns are Daniele’s favorite subject to photograph as she finds the opportunity to document brand new life oh-so-inspiring. The newborn stage is precious and it is fleeting. In the whirlwind of sleepless nights and groggy days, your newborn images will become a treasured remembrance of this sweet and short-lived time.
The best time to schedule your newborn session is while you’re still pregnant. Because your little one’s arrival is unpredictable, Daniele will pencil your due date into her calendar, and will leave room for your session in her schedule around that time. Once you are home from the hospital, a set date and time will be established.
If your baby is already here, please call or email to inquire about session availability, as Daniele does try to fit newborns into her schedule whenever possible.
Daniele prefers to photograph newborns during their first two weeks of life, with the most optimal time being between 5-10 days. During this time babies are still blissfully sleepy and can easily curl into poses. After two weeks baby acne, molting, and colic can start to become an issue.
The preferred location for newborn sessions is Daniele’s natural light studio. It is a warm and inviting space and all the necessities are close at hand. During your session Daniele will follow baby’s lead with plenty of time for feedings, diaper changes and soothing. Because of this, it is not uncommon for newborn sessions to last two to three hours, sometimes more. Please plan accordingly.
Daniele's studio is in an adorable cottage on her property in Camarillo, and as such directions are not posted on this website. Once your session is booked directions will be sent to you via email.
Because of the custom nature of her work, Daniele only books a limited number of Los Angeles newborn photography sessions each month. There are certain times of the year that are busier than others. Late spring and early fall are almost always booked with a waiting list, so it is never a bad idea to get a spot as quickly as possible. Depending on time of year, please be sure to schedule at least 3 to 6 weeks in advance to ensure an appointment.
