Today I wanted to share an outdoor newborn session that I did last month at the Sutro Baths in San Francisco. Most people think of an in home shoot when they think of newborn photos but an outdoor session can be so beautiful especially when you live in a place with views like this. I personally love doing outdoor newborn sessions and they are a great alternative to an in home session if you either don’t want your home photographed or you just love a certain location and want pictures in that spot.

We waited until Max was about a month old to take these pictures and we got lucky with a really warm and comfortable day in San Francisco. If you’ve followed my work you know I love shooting at this spot (here’s an engagement session I did here as well). It’s always beautiful and can work for any type of shoot. As always, these images are 100% film and it’s now been officially a year since I started shooting with film for clients! I finally feel like I have a really good handle on it and have been loving the images that my film set up has helped me create.

If you’re interested in a newborn session please send me an email. I offer regular shoots as well as First Year Collections so you can document the whole first year with your new baby. At the end of it you’ll have so many wonderful images to look back on, frame and put into an album to enjoy for years to come.

Here’s baby Max at the beautiful Sutro Baths in San Francisco…
