Life, paused

San Diego Newborn and Personal Branding Photographer

Luxury Newborn Photography | Brand Photography for Mompreneurs


Every mother has a journey and a story


Life happens quickly, and no one understands this better than moms. While the days can feel long, the years seem to fly by in an instant.

Renata is honored to serve powerhouse San Diego mamas in every stage of motherhood. Whether you’re pregnant with your first baby or running a company while raising a houseful of children, I capture the moments you want to remember.

Each photo portrait you receive allows you to revisit important times in the life of your children, your family, and your business. Every mother has a journey and a story, and it’s a privilege to help you tell your story in photos. 

By developing strong relationships with my clients, I capture their unique personalities in each photograph. I’m honored to be part of these moments, and many clients have become great friends, too.

My Services


Newborns

From the second you get that positive pregnancy test, things move lightning-fast for moms. I get it because I’m a mama, too.  I help you slow things down just a bit by capturing the beauty of each important step in your family’s life:

  • Maternity pictures
  • Newborn and baby photos
  • Milestones

I provide both in home and in studio sessions, because my first priority is the comfort of your family. My sessions are full service, which means I will provide everything we need (newborn props, backdrops, outfits, etc), so let me do the shopping and styling according to your vision!

Families

I cherish the opportunity to help you document all of your family’s special times. And I love capturing the unique personality of each family I serve so that you have treasured photos to keep forever.

My family sessions are play based, so you are guaranteed to have an stress-free fun time! I’m committed to take a mix of posed and candid pictures of your family. And the biggest the personalities, the more fun it gets!

And please do not forget your fur kids! I absolutely love dogs and treat mine as my children (and including them on my photoshoots is a must!)

Personal Branding

If you own a business of any size, you deserve to celebrate it! Running a company is hard. Being the CEO is challenging. I help women business owners in the San Diego area build their marketing materials with:

  • Personalized Branding Photos
  • On-Brand Social Media Content
  • Modern Lifestyle Headshots

From the planning call to our brand photoshoot day, I will guide you through finding your message and showing up as the boss you are! You will end up with impactful images that speak directly to your dream clients, and a boosted confidence to conquer your most ambitious goals!

Newborn sessions

Branding sessions

Although I always recommend to schedule your newborn session while you are on your second to third trimester, your baby is still a newborn after that! As a matter of fact, I have photographed older babies frequently.

The recommendation is to have your newborn session while baby is around 7-14 days new. But, I totally understand the fog you go to after bring that baby home, and I will do my best to fit you in and get those memories documented!

Absolutely not!!!! I offer a full service session and will provide everything we need for the session: newborn props, outfits, fabrics, accessories, and backdrops.

I take newborn safety VERY seriously. I have been trained in newborn safety and infant CPR. I will follow baby lead throughout the session and will never ‘force’ a pose. My newborn props and outfits are inspected and sanitized between sessions. I am also fully vaccinated (including influenza, Tdap, and COVID-19) and wear a mask for the entire time while in close contact with your baby.

I offer both in home newborn sessions and in studio newborn sessions. The location is completely up to you and where you feel more comfortable.

Not really. Although you will get some killer headshots during your session, personal branding sessions are way more than that! We will dive deep on your message and your ideal client, and create images that speak directly to them. We will showcase who you are, what you do and why you do it! We will create images that you can use for your website, mailing and online marketing, social media platforms, and much more!

Absolutely yes! As a matter of fact, it can be an accelerator into building up your business! I offer three different branding packages so I can serve women and their business in every stage.

I not only can, but I will. A big part of the preparation work for you photoshoot is actually diving deep in all aspects of your personal brand: brand aesthetics, brand message, and of course you as the face of your brand!

I do! I offer a package that includes multiple branding photo sessions with monthly payments. These packages can keep your social media content up to date and allows you for seasonal imagery.
