Babies make great Art


Orange County Newborn Photographer




the newborn experience

Babies are only little for such a short time! That's why Newborn sessions are so very special for new parents. On the Treetop carefully plans and styles a session that will beautiful capture all of the little  details and features that you will want to remember of your brand new bundle of joy


the process

When you choose to have your newborn photographed by On the Treetop Photography we want you to be able to relax and enjoy every moment. Everything is provided for your session, so you don't need to worry about bringing anything except your new baby. The studio is kept warm and the session is  soothing, so calm in fact that it is not uncommon for new parents to even doze themselves.


Your baby's custom session will begin with a consultation where we carefully plan out and style your baby's session. At t his time we will also discuss clothing options for mom dad and any siblings and you will get to see and touch the beautiful handcrafted art products we offer. Once your baby arrives wewill find the perfect date for your session and capture this special time. The day of the session, everything will be provided for you, just bring your baby. You are going to love this experience. About a week after your session we will meet again for your ordering appointment. This is the moment you have been waiting for -you will get to see the beautiful images of your baby and decide how you would like to take them home. ​

the details

You have a due date, but not even the doctor can be sure when your baby will actually arrive (except of course with a planned c section). No  worries, my calendar is created to be very fluid so that if your baby arrives early. late or right on time I have you covered. I only pre-book 3 newborns per week and never more than one in a day so that there is never a rush. When you are ready to book, you will submit the retainer fee and sign the contract and sit back and wait for your little one to arrive. Once your baby  arrives I ask that you send me an email. Within a day or two we will then set your actual session date. 

​Your baby will ideally be between 5 and 21 days old. This is the perfect time to have your new baby photographed because your baby is still very sleepy and fresh out of the womb. At this time they are easily moldable into those cute little poses that we all love. The comfort and safety of your new baby and you, is always our first priority. If your baby has jaundice, premature or needs just a little more time in the hospital we may opt to push your session back a little further. Don't worry we can still get amazing images of your baby. Sandra highly recommends scheduling your session before your baby arrives. If, however, you were unable to do that and have an older newborn, please reach out. Sandra regularly photographs older babies and is known as being the best in the area at settling and capturing older newborns. She is happy to accommodate last-minute bookings if her schedule permits.


Newborn sessions are typically scheduled mid-morning (starting around 9 or 10am) Monday through Friday. A very limited number of weekend appointments are available at a $100 premium. These book up very quickly, so if you would like a weekend appointment be sure to book early.  To book your newborn session simply reach out via my contact page


Over the past 10 years I have created a style that focuses on the natural beauty of a new baby. I love to incorporate beautiful textures and rustic elements.showcase the art of new life. Everything for your baby is provided for you. Newborns are best photographed their natural state. In addition, I have a beautiful collection of newborn outfits and wraps that are specifically created for newborn photography.  This is a time for parents to relax, just bring your baby.


Sandra encourages the involvement of siblings and parents in the portrait session. Your new baby is a very special the addition to your family and Sandra welcomes your whole family to be a part of the fun. Sandra generally aims to photograph sibling and family images in the beginning of the session and recommends having dad or trusted friend or family member available to take siblings home or to a park afterwards.This helps keep the experience positive for the siblings.
