Monterey photographer // Monterey family photographer // monterey newborn session with the Payne Family

I’ve photographed the Payne family for several years now and I love it every time. Being a Big Sur photographer I’m often shooting outdoors by the beach or redwoods so I was so excited about this in home lifestyle session. I love to photograph families how they naturally interact together and I feel like home sessions provide a comfortable environment for just that. Being a mom I know how fleeting these moments are; I hope Ellery and Avery can look back on these moments and remember the sweet way their mom held them, the careful planning that went into their nurseries and their home when they were little. These moments are what photography is all about, emotion, connection and love.
