I just sent you a PM
one of our good friends who has been doing photography for many many years (as a hobby) just started doing it professionally about a year or two ago and did our engagement, maternity & newborn pictures. he has all the equipment and backdrops and can come to your house.even though he's been doing this for years he still trying to build his professional portfolio so his prices are excellent.
his name is dave lai and his email is: [email protected]
you can tell him jenny referred you! good luck
ps - here's a link to some of the pics that he took that (the ones w/the white blanket were not part of the shoot, he just shot them impromptu after the shoot, some she was on my lap )
also our engagement pics for more examples of his work (around pasadena & dtla):
I can't recommend the amazing photographer who did ours enough! She was truly stellar and handled and positioned a sleeping 10 day old with aplomb, never waking her and never making her cry. When she needed to feed, Mindy just patiently waited for almost an hour (feed, burp, change, etc) and that happened twice! The shots, incredible!
Feel free to contact me with any other questions about the experience
I used Krist Sutton Elias Photography. She was amazing... check out her site: www.kristielias.com
She is in Long Beach so I am not sure if that is too far for you, I can tell you that she is worth it!
Hey there! We used Russell and Emily Snider and they were amazing! Came to our house and made Van Nuys look beautiful:) Check out the blog post of our shoot here:
Oh, and also, for an extra $100 they give you a CD of all the images so that you can make birth announcements, photobooks yourself.
