The Naturally Newborn Team

We are essentially a group of creative, kind of crazy, but completely dedicated people.

Amber
owner/photographer

I could use this space to tell you all of my achievements and why I am the only photographer for you. But the truth is, I'm not sure that what I say here is going to persuade you. Even if I tell you I'm literally the best photographer ever.
(I mean...I could be...)

But I'll get real about who I really am.
I am a mom. I am a wife. I am a daughter and sister.
I am flawed. I forget things all the time. Sometimes days go in between my email replies.
I am an introvert. I'm kind of scared of talking on the phone. I struggle with anxiety and depression.
Running this business is the best and hardest thing I have ever done.

and i love it.

I love creating art. I love taking photos. I am passionate. I love babies. I love bellies. I love all things motherhood.
Nothing compares to the feeling of creating a beautiful photograph. Honestly. It fuels my soul.

I collect coffee mugs and take pictures with them (#mugshots). I love all things lemon and banana flavor. I like to think I have a great sense of humor. But, I'll let you be the judge of that. I have a bit of a potty mouth (but never in front of the children).

If I sound like your people or if you just love my work, let's meet and create magic together. xoxo

Tabetha
Assistant/Baby whisperer/amber's right hand

Tabetha joined Naturally Newborn in 2015 and since then clients have fallen in love with her easy going personality and gentle nature.

Her ability to read and understand client's needs is a great asset and makes each session a fun and relaxing experience. Babies and parents respond well to Tabetha and we are so lucky to have her on board.

Tabetha's passion for working with babies started at a young age and followed her through to adulthood. Like many young girls, she started out babysitting and quickly learned that she had a natural rapport with babies of all ages.

When Tabetha is not soothing newborns and wrangling toddlers at the studio, she's at home with her two young boys and her husband. She is also a skilled photographer on her own and takes her own client sessions in her free time. She photographs everything from engagements to families and of course, babies. She even took over for a while when Amber was out on maternity leave and handled client sessions beautifully!

sophia
studio administrator/assistant

Our newest member of the Naturally Newborn team joins us with a multitude of talents and skills.

Sophia has aims of becoming a professional recording artist/singer/songwriter and is currently studying commercial vocal performance at Cal State LA. You can check out her original recordings on both iTunes and Spotify. Her musical style can be described as singer/songwriter mixed with a little pop. Her influences range from Adele to 90's artists such as Mazzy Star and the late Jeff Buckley.

As a former nanny (just like Amber!), Sophia has tons of experience in the childcare field and is excellent with babies! She's not afraid to jump up and down to get your baby's attention and do whatever is necessary to make them smile.

When not helping on shoots, creating music or spending time with her family, Sophia can usually be found shopping for clothes and shoes, because......duh. Shoes are life.

If you have any questions or need anything, she's your girl! Don't be afraid to reach out.
