I’m Kristin Eldridge, a portrait photographer in Long Beach, CA.  On the site you’ll find details, pricing, my portfolio and the contact buttons on the left.  If you’re interested in booking a session, call or email and we can discuss dates and locations.

I have a studio located in Long Beach, but I also travel for portrait sessions (newborn, baby, children and family) to Orange County and Los Angeles.

Besides being a wife, mom and a photographer, I love to cook and craft.  So, if you’re interested, (beyond scrolling through photo sessions), you can check out my favorite cookie recipe or how to sew yourself a kimono!

Tiny newborn hands and feet

Part of my newborn sessions always includes photographing tiny newborn hands and feet.  I try to plan it in when the newborn isn’t quite asleep.  That way, I’m not wasting any time.  I’m waiting for baby to be soothed to sleep and getting some of the very important details.  In fact, if babies are moving just a little it adds so much to the photo.  Seeing toes curl up and hands grab on is just adorable.

There are times when it’s better for the baby to be asleep (like if you want fingers extended).

The other thing I like to do is photograph the series of details in the same color way.  That way a parent could hang the detail shots together without worrying about contrasting colors.

Newborn Photographer Long Beach

Sometimes you don’t need everyone’s face in the shot.  Sometimes the love is communicated through gestures and body posture.  I love to include a good combination of traditional and modern crops into each photo session.

What are you drawn toward?  Do you love traditional shots or do you prefer the ‘different’?

Baby Photography Long Beach

Baby C was a chill as could be.  Which is pretty great when you’re the little brother.  You have to learn to go with the flow.

He slept like a champ and let everyone hold him, even his toddler-aged sister.  Speaking of his big sister, it wasn’t too long ago that I was doing her newborn session.  And she was also super easy-going.  Maybe it runs in the family!

Orange County Newborn Photography

As much as I love photographing babies in my Long Beach studio, going to a client’s home is also wonderful.  People are generally more comfortable in their own home and they get to put in little touches of their style into the photos.  Not to mention the totally cozy feel the photos have.  So, if you’re on the fence about where to do your photo session, consider doing it at your home.  These photos show just how beautiful an at-home session can be.

Orange County Family Photographer

Want to know the secret to a great photo session?

Love each other.

Sounds to simple to be true, but it’s not.  People that love each other don’t have to worry about how to pose.  They don’t have to worry about where to put their arm, because they just know that arms are for hugging.  So, for your next photo session, remember to be in love with the people God gave you.  Be in love with your family and the rest will work itself out.

Big Brothers // Long Beach Baby Photographer

He kept telling us that her bow was wrong.  ‘Girls wear the bow on the side.’  He wanted to fix her bow before we started the photo session.  Aren’t big brothers the best?

Also. Her mini espadrilles.  Because everything looks better in a mini-size.
