Your sweet little one has arrived! Are you soaking it all in? These moments that you have anticipated for so long are disappearing before your very eyes - let me help you remember, before it is too late. You take care of your new babe and let me do the rest. I have thought of everything, so that you can sit back, relax, and feel confident that your little one is in good hands during your Bay Area newborn portrait session. 

From our first conversation and getting to know your Motherhood journey, to planning your Bay Area newborn portrait session to including pampering from my trusted hair & makeup artist, your choice of gowns from my curated newborn closet, to a session where you feel luminous and walk away confident in your own beauty - I am here for you every step of the way. That is the "Laurel Smith Photography Newborn Experience".

"I rarely post reviews, but I wanted to ensure I did for Laurel. 

Laurel is truly an artist. 

She photographed my newborn pictures. Laurel was so patient, kind, and made my baby and me so comfortable. I plan on using Laurel for all future family pictures and will recommend her to all friends looking for maternity, newborn, or family pictures. Thanks for making the moment so special for my daughter and I, Laurel!"

"We love working with Laurel! she has done multiple shoots for us, and 

Most recently, we trusted her to take our baby's newborn photos, and i'm so glad we did! she delivered gorgeous images of our baby that we cherish. Laurel is talented and professional. We look forward to using her services again in the future!"

each time we walk away with beautiful pictures that perfectly capture our family.

"Laurel is simply amazing. 

We have had 4 shoots with her and each is better than the last.

She makes it fun for our kids and manages to capture everyone the way I see them as their mother. I cannot recommend Laurel enough! We will never use another photographer."

"We had a fabulous experience with Laurel in studio. My two year old was having a really hard day. Laurel was so gentle with her, and came up with great ideas to get some quality images despite the pout face. I was completely blown away when I received the images!! 

She captures light in such a beautiful way, I could not have been happier.

 I'm so in love with my baby announcement pictures, THANK YOU, Laurel!!"
