Baby Milestone Photography Near Me

Newborn sessions are up to 3 hours in my home studio. -Mini- sessions are 30 minutes long in my home studio or weather permitting outside my home on my 4 acre property. 1yr sessions are 1 hour long and can be done in my home studio or weather permitting at a location of your choice within a 30 minute driving distance from Scarborough. A cake smash can be added to any milestone plan and will be done at the end of the one year session. The cost of a cake smash session is $125 normally but booking it with a milestone package it is only $95 added to the package total. Cake smash sessions are 30 minutes long. 

Hayden’s mommy and daddy were so excited during their session.   After experiencing the loss of another pregnancy, Hayden was just the sunshine they needed to brighten their lives back up again.  She was so smiley and adorable during her newborn photography session and I was able to capture so many cute shots of her!  Here is a sampling from her newborn gallery.

These session usually last around 45 min – 1 hour depending on baby. We can take time to feed and snuggle as well as get them used to me as well! Most babies love me, so I normally do not have a hard time coaxing those sweet smiles out, but every baby is different! 

I use natural and studio lights during my session to photograph your baby and family.  I have collected many beautiful props over the years that reflect a style that is soft, timeless and natural.  I photograph your baby when he or she is 7-9 days old ideally for the beautiful sleeping shots, but I will photograph babies up to 3 weeks old in this sleep style session.   The session will be about 2-3 hours long and during this time, and you will relax as I safely photograph your baby with my different gorgeous props.  My goal is to create beautiful artwork for you to hang on your walls and cherish for a lifetime and to preserve these fleeting moments when you first met your sweet baby.  I also will take a few parent shots during the same session.  I do photograph siblings as well, but ask you to only bring them for the first 30 minutes only so I can focus on the newborn for most of the session to give you a variety of images.   I would describe my style as dreamy, natural and timeless with lots of texture and beautiful light.

There is nothing I love more then following my littlest clients through their first year of life. But I have realized that many of my clients who want to capture these milestones don’t necessarily need a full length session. So this is my way of offering affordable plans so these milestones are captured as they should be!

Please use the CONTACT ME form at the bottom of the home page https://www.christywallisphotography.com/

Welcome and thank you so much for stopping by!  I know there are many choices for photographers in San Diego so I really appreciate you taking the time to look at my work.

I have been a San Diego Newborn photographer since 2010 and have photographed hundreds of San Diego’s tinest residents. I was awarded with the 2016 Top 10 Newborn Photographers in California and have received several Creative Newborn Photography award from Photography Magazine.  I am a member of  the National Association of Child Photographers and regularly featured on Best Newborn Photographers..  I’m also on top of the San Diego A-List for Portrait Photographers and the Expertise 10 ten Maternity Photographers in San Diego.

While my specialty is newborns, I also love photographing older babies, such as six month milestones like sitting up and one year old cake smashes (so much fun). I also love doing beautiful natural maternity sessions in locations such as beaches, parks, gardens, trails, or any other beautiful outdoor location or a gorgeous indoor studio session that focuses on your growing belly.   And I would love to capture these moments for you!

When Kyra’s mom told me that she was a rainbow baby and she wanted some rainbow props, I started digging through my vendors for some super sweet rainbow props and I love what I ended up with.  And when she brought in big sister, I might have let out a little gasp.  She was 4 years old but simply divine with all the beautiful hair.  Photographer’s dream!!  Here is a sampling from her gallery.

Health: Because of the nature of my job, and the exposure I have to brand new babies, I ask that if ANYONE in your family is sick, that you not bring them to your session. I work extremely hard to ensure that my home and studio is free of germs and sickness, and take it very seriously the health and safety of the newborns & babies that arrive here. 

Cake Smash: If you will be adding a Cake Smash to your 1 Year Milestone Session, here are some details! I will bring a white blanket, and all the cleanup supplies. (paper towels, water, garbage bags). I normally have the cake on a stand for the shot I do of just the cake, but then after that it works good to have the cake just on a cardboard base right on the blanket.

I think it’s pretty safe to say I fall in love a few times a week or more depending on how busy I am.  That is, fall in love with every tiny baby that I get to hold in my arms and mold into these lovely poses.

 I melt with their newborn scent and with the beautiful innocence of their being.  I consider myself to have the best job in the world, documenting these new little beings that are so perfect.  Claire was no exception.

 Her parents were so charming and loving and I really enjoyed the few hours we got to spend together.   When Claire was still in her mama’s belly, we took photos on the beach in Cardiff.  We couldn’t see her, but she was there in the form of a beautiful belly that her mama so lovingly would hold in her hands.

 And here she was at her newborn session a few months later, with her parents entrusting me with the greatest new love of their lives and truly I am humbled.   Thank you for trusting me with your most prized possession.

 I hope these photos will hope you remember her in all of her newborn perfection. ♥

 Anything you can bring to make them laugh and/or capture their attention is perfect! Some fan favorites have been playing videos on your phone, anything that makes noise, and of course playing peek-a-boo. 99% of the photos I have in my Baby Milestone portfolio are taken with mom/dad/me acting absolutely crazy behind the camera! 🙂 So be prepared to be silly and loud to get their attention! I do have a radio baby mix playing during your session to add to the ambiance. 

If you don’t see a package that fits your needs please email and I can accommodate what you may be looking for by making a custom package. Package plans are paid in full at the time of booking to receive the discounted price. Payment plans are available for all packages for up to 4 monthly payments and will be billed at the non discounted pricing. 

NEWBORN STUDIO SESSION FEE   $250 deposit to reserve (this will apply toward your final order)

The Cake = I would love to be able to provide this for my clients, but due to possible food allergens etc, it is unfortunately a liability for me, so I have the parents bring the cake.  It is worth noting that If this is the first time that your baby has eaten this type of food, it is a good idea to come with some sort of benadryl just in case there is a reaction.

Rare, but it’s good to be prepared. Hint: Any type of fluffy whipped or butter cream icing works best. Stay away from fondant as it can be a chocking hazard. Chocolate tends to not photograph as well (looks like mud 🙂 as a white cake does.

Also red and blue can be hard to get off baby. The Cake Stand =  Normally the cake already has a stand, but like I mentioned this is mostly just used for the first picture of just the cake. So if you do not have one, no worries! Backdrops = Feel free to get creative and chat with me about your ideas! Banners or pendants work great.

Please let me know what to expect prior to your session so that I know how to set up. I have a cream paper that I use for indoors, and outdoors I have a white blanket we can use.

Another sweet family that I met at the beach that was welcoming their first baby girl.  Well actually there first baby is a fur baby that they brought to the session.  We had a beautiful sunset and were able to capture these moments forever for them to share with their family.  Cardiff is a great beach because you have the tidepools as well as the cliffs and it’s not always super crowded.

2. Any outfits or special sentimental items you would like to include. (Let me know what they are in your questionnaire) 

These sessions are all about capturing the sweet milestones that happen in the first year of your baby’s life! Grabbing their toes, giggling, putting anything and everything in their mouths, tummy time, sitting up, crawling, etc etc! My goal is to capture those precious details for you so that you have them for a lifetime! These sessions do not have to be exactly at the 3 Month, 6 Month, 9 Month, 1 Year. They can be whenever you feel like you want to capture where your baby is. 

3. If possible, bring baby fully fed as that will give us more time for pictures! 

I always get super excited to see my clients again when they bring me more babies.  For this family, it was baby #2, a sweet little girl.  We planned a bright and happy session to welcome her into the world.  I always love to take lots of family shots in my sessions to show off the love.  Here is a sampling from her session.

   ~ Please note that not all babies end up LOVING the cake or the texture of it. One way to help them prepare is to let them try with a cupcake of similar frosting etc so that it isn’t so new to them on their session day. Babies are often hesitant to try new tastes and textures, and this is one way to help them become familiar with it ahead of time. ~

BELLY SESSION ONLY  $200 deposit to reserve (this will apply toward your final order).   

Please note that -Mini- Milestone sessions are only offered if booked with one of these packages. They cannot be booked alone.
