Outdoor newborn photo session San Diego | San Diego newborn photographer
Svetlana is familiar with a lot of beautiful locations around San Diego and sometimes offers outdoor newborn sessions in San Diego. Svetlana recommends scheduling outdoor photo sessions around sunset for beautiful soft lighting. Although outdoor newborn photography sounds like an amazing opportunity to use the beautiful San Diego outdoors with endless background options, it can be tricky to keep the baby warm and comfortable. Therefore outdoor newborn sessions are limited to using long sleeve outfits, hats and wraps with a selection of a few props. So, if you are interested in some cute naked baby pictures, Svetlana recommends booking a studio session first and adding a mini outdoor newborn session for those parents who want to add variety to their newborn gallery.

There is a huge collection of props available in the studio including various baskets, swings, little beds and hammocks. Svetlana carefully selected the best hand made newborn outfits, hats and delicate headbands. With a degree in engineering and design she often designs new props for her studio to make this San Diego newborn photography studio experience unique and unforgettable for her clients. They always comment on how amazing it was to watch her do her magic, safely posing their newborn babies in very cute and comfortable poses and using baby soothing techniques to maximize session time.
There is a comfortable sitting area in the studio where parents can feed their babies and even take a nap while Svetlana and her assistant work their magic photographing your newborn baby. A regular newborn session is 3 hours. It usually allows for plenty of time for posing, feeding, diaper changes and soothing the baby. Multiple baby sessions, sessions with siblings or pets usually require more time. Clients can extend their session if needed. Svetlana encourages bringing grandparents to the photoshoots whenever possible, as it allows to create priceless three or four generation pictures that became family heirlooms.

Choosing a newborn photographer can be extremely overwhelming and Svetlana was the best decision we've made when planning for the arrival of our little princess. If you are looking for a fantastic newborn photographer, stop looking, you've found her! I booked her when I was near my due date and knew she was the right choice after reviewing her websites (Yelp, Instagram, Google, Facebook). Svetlana was very accommodating and responsive to my messages on Instagram and Yelp. She has a beautiful studio in her home in San Diego with a breathtaking set-up and just a ton of wonderful props, backdrops, blankets, etc. to use. Svetlana and her assistant were very patient and soothing with our newborn. I had absolutely no idea how the shoots were going to go and was worried my baby wouldn't cooperate, but I was totally wrong as she is truly a baby whisperer! I can't say enough about Svetlana and her assistant. We are so happy that we found ABL Photography while scouring the internet for newborn photographers. If you are hesitating - don't! I did plenty of research and am so glad I found Svetlana!! I highly recommend her for newborn photos. I cannot wait to see the finished product, but I am confident they will be stunning.
- Book her in advance.
- Show up on time (I know this is hard with a newborn, but this will allow maximum time for the session to go smoothly).
- If you have something in mind let her know ahead of time to save time.
We have received our pictures and the end result was excellent. We got many compliments already on our daughter's pictures. Newborn session is indeed an investment, but working with Svetlana and receiving such a high-end product makes it well worth it. If you are looking for maternity or newborn photographer Svetlana is the best in San Diego, she knows what she is doing!
