I fell in love with photography as a stay-at-home mom - I had this burning desire to remember every little moment from my boys’ childhood. I wanted to make my memories last a lifetime and, to this day, I still look back on my photographs and feel like it was just yesterday.
As a newborn photographer, my goal is to give you that same experience - that you too will look at images of your little one years down the road, and with a heart full of emotion, feel like it was yesterday.
Mama, I’ve been there and now how hard it is to trust someone with your newborn. Your experience will be positive, relaxed, and enjoyable. I’ve photographed over 100 babes and am nationally recognized as one of Corona’s Best Newborn Photographers. Your little one is in good hands.
I value timeless, heirloom images that will last a lifetime. To achieve this, we use state-of-the-art equipment, a globally-sourced prop collection, and use only the finest materials for your heirloom products. Quality is at the heart of all we do.
You are more than a transaction and, by the end of our session, you’ll walk away feeling like an old and trusted friend. I value long-term relationships and look forward to photographing your family as your babe grows.
"Bonny is amazing and professional. She did my sons newborn pictures and she was VERY patient and sweet the whole time. When I reached out to her she responded really fast and was able to fit me in soon. She has lots of things to choose from for the newborn pictures. I was super pleased! I highly recommend her, you won’t regret it! Thanks Bonny!"
"Bonny was so great with our newborn. Her studio is super cute and professional. It takes a bit of skills to understand how to position and handle a newborn and Bonny definitely knew all of the tricks. She was very patient and good with our newborn and her work shows it. I’d definitely recommend her for all and any photos. Thanks Bonny!"
I was impressed with the quality shoots Bonny was able to take. The photos have a good composition and are clean images, yet still have a romantic edge to it that I don’t always find in a good photographer. Bonny was able to get great shots of my six month old, although he was fussy at the time, but in our pictures, wow he looks like an angel. Our family and baby pictures came out great. Everything in our photos just “pops”!
I was born and raised in Juneau, Alaska...it's a bit colder than California!
My boys are all mama's boys (but don't tell them I told you!)
The Disney character I’m most like is a cross between Tinkerbell and Snow White - feisty yet sweet and caring
I'm addicted to newborn photography props, especially headbands.
My husband says I have no patience…except when it comes to newborns.
My favorite place to photograph my clients is my hidden gem in Lake Elsinore. It is nestled in the foothills of the Elsinore Mountains of the Santa Ana Mountain range and feels like you’re in a story book!
I have been to all 50 states and many provinces of Canada. As a child my summers were spent traveling around the states in an RV with my family.
I inherited my love of babies from my paternal grandmother who had 10 children.
The sooner the better! Most newborn sessions take place between 6 and 14-days after birth as newborns tend to stay sound asleep throughout the session and we are able to gently move your little one into sweet poses. After the 14-day mark, babies begin to move and stretch more, making the poses and images more challenging to achieve. But don’t worry, it is still possible to do a session after 14 days, we can work around what your baby is comfortable with!
The best time to schedule your session is 6-8 weeks before your due date as my calendar fills up quickly! I only take a limited number of newborns each month, so let’s make sure we get your session on the calendar as soon as possible and there is one less thing to worry about after your little one is here!
All newborn sessions are done in my climate controlled studio where you’ll have access to my suite of props and (and I’ll have access to all of my equipment and gear!)
A retainer fee of $75 is due at the time of booking to reserve your session. This payment guarantees your newborn baby’s shoot gets on my calendar - no matter when the baby arrives and locks in your pricing. The remaining balance is due on the day of your session.
Absolutely! Photographing your little one surrounded by family is an incredible experience for everyone involved. If you want sibling or family photos, you’ll need to book a Signature or Heirloom package.
I do! In my studio you will find a wide variety of hats, headbands, wraps, outfits, and props, such as bowls, baskets, crates, buckets, beds, and baby carriage, just to name a few! Prior to your session you will fill out a questionnaire where you will pick your color and prop preferences and your session will be styled with those preferences in mind.
I offer numerous poses during your session and we will absolutely try to capture your desired poses and images! My main priority during your session is the safety and comfort of your newborn. I will never force your baby into a pose that they can’t settle into or that they don’t like and it is for that reason that I cannot guarantee all poses.
Of course! Extra images are available for purchase at $25 for each additional image requested. As an added bonus, you’ll receive one free for every additional four images purchased!
