Fallbrook Newborn Photography

This Outdoor Newborn Photography Session in Fallbrook made my heart so happy. As I continue to put distance between myself and the years I spent doing studio newborn photography, I find more and more joy in capturing these kinds of moments. I love how these new parents wanted to capture really natural moments with their baby boy. Sometimes I shy away from outdoor newborn sessions just because I always want to ensure baby is comfortable and safe. Everything aligned perfectly for this session though. Although it is freeeeezing here today (the day after Thanksgiving), a few weeks ago the weather was absolutely perfect in Fallbrook. I had no worries at all that baby was too cold and that was so nice. Also baby boy was already one month old which made everything feel very easy and comfortable. I hope you enjoy this sweet session! I know I did!

Carlsbad Beach Family Photographer. Marisa McDonald Photography.

Swoon. This session is going down in the record books. Though I am typically more of a Carlsbad Beach Family Photographer, I made a special trip down to Coronado to capture this beautiful family on their home turf. It was November but it was HOT. Once we found our way to the shade of these amazing rocks, it was a gorgeous Fall day in Southern California. I knew we were off to a good start, when Dad surprised Mom with a beer right at the start of the session. For the record….I SUPPORT THIS!! The more relaxed the parents are, the better the session! Of course we can motivate the kiddos in different ways throughout the session but its so important to keep it light and fun. When kids believe we’re trying to have fun, their personalities really come through and its just magic! Soooo…what’s going to be in your sippy cup at your next session?!

Lifestyle Newborn Photography in Poway

Lifestyle Newborn Photography is where its at! Forget about baby in a bucket, hands folded like the Queen of England. This is real life…baby at home, comfortable, with family. Isn’t this what the newborn time is all about? When I first started my photography journey, I jumped on the studio newborn train but I have found so much joy in letting that go and embracing this more comfortable, natural approach. Of course I still get a nice wrapped shot of baby for the birth announcement but these sessions are largely about telling the story of these first months with the newest member of your family!

Whether you have a home that looks like it came straight out of a magazine or a more modest, simple home, lifestyle photography can work for you! As you look through these images of this beautiful family, notice where the composition emphasizes the environment and where it doesn’t.  The main area where I emphasized environment in this home was the gorgeously styled nursery (!!!). In the other shots I focused on the family without drawing so much attention to the surroundings.  After all, these sessions are about baby and family right? They shouldn’t be about the style of your home!

Curious about whether these lifestyle newborn sessions could work for your family? The answer is almost always “yes” but feel free to shoot me an email and let’s chat more! marisa@marisamcdonaldphotography.com

Fun Photography for Young Families in Oceanside California

FUN Photography?! Is it possible for a photo session with young kiddos to be fun? You bet! Its not always easy to get everyone on the same page but I work really hard to make sure some fun is had in the process. Are you feeling the fun vibes with this crew? I hope so!

I don’t think I’ve mentioned on the blog yet…or have I? I’m making sure that I’m having fun with my photography business lately too. I’m taking a long overdue social media break on my business pages on Facebook and Instagram and it has been just amazing. I’ve been using my google platform and my blog (sometimes, haha!) and the clients continue to roll in. Meanwhile I feel like I’m not in the business of bombarding people with constant requests for attention which is honestly so refreshing. I am in the business of photography and doing what I love! Yes!

Don’t get me wrong…when my business was fresh and new, social media was everything. I relied heavily on my personal network and their personal network and so on. 4 years later I don’t feel like I am still in that place. I can just be a photographer who takes beautiful pictures. I am open for business and people who love my style find me when they need my services.

One day when I am a rich and famous photographer, I’ll be sure to hire a social media person to get me back in the “network.” Haha! In the meantime, I’ll be here doing my thing!

Family Photography for Real Families in Oceanside

Family Photography…Do you ever feel like it isn’t really family friendly (or toddler or kid friendly or husband friendly)? Kind of ironic right? Let’s take “family” photos and make sure the kids all act like grownups! Sometimes I’ve been known to tell my kiddos I want them to act like they are 39, lol! But when it comes to family photos, I actually do kinda want them to act their own age (even if its a little more difficult or unruly). On that note, I hope you enjoy this “family friend” family session with two little toddlers who were perfectly themselves and it was magic!
