The Terranea is one of those resorts that just takes your breathe away. It sits on top of a bluff with incredible views of the Pacific Ocean. The decor has a Mediterranean vibe with a soft color palette. So, basically it’s the perfect backdrop for family photos!
Kristin Eldridge photographed this Photo Session at the Terranea Resort, located in Palos Verdes, CA.
As much as I love photographing babies in the studio in Long Beach, going to clients’ homes is such a treat. Especially when they are decorated as cute as this one. Good natural light is always a plus too!
I tell my clients to plan their newborn session around 2 things…baby (or toddler)’s nap schedule and when the most light comes into your home. If you have an ample amount of light, the photos will be light and airy. Gorgeous!
// Kristin Eldridge is a Baby Photographer in Orange County, Long Beach and Los Angeles. This session took place at the client’s home.
One of my favorite spots to explore with kids is in Laguna Beach. With tide pools and a castle, there’s so much to see! It takes a little bit of effort to get there (walking over coral), but so worth it. I’m starting off with February 21 in the afternoon while the tide is low.
The sessions are $100 for a 30 minute session (an extra 10 minutes from the normal 20). Then, you purchase a package to receive all your digital images. Click here for the package options.

It’s no secret that I’m a sucker for the golden light that happens at the end of the day. So, every year, we try to schedule their photo session at the end of the day. It’s cousins and aunts and uncles, everyone’s there! During my sessions that include more than one family, I switch it up, bouncing back and forth between kids and family. That way everyone gets a break. No one has to be ‘on’ the whole time. Scheduling a session with extended family is such a great idea. I love the dynamic that happens between all the relatives.

I’ve always wanted to do mini-sessions with kids and their pets. And what a better time than Valentine’s Day! I know some will ask, so I’ll start off by answering the question…can you book this mini-session if you don’t have a pet? YES. But, it’s a great excuse to get some photos with your pet!
Here’s the details:
January 24 (HB Central Park) 2:30-4:00pm
January 25 (Long Beach Studio location) 11:00am-12:00pm
January 25 (Palos Verdes Area) 2:30-4:00pm
Sessions will be 30 minutes long and include all your digital images (cost: $300 just the kids, $400 include the parents)
Did you want to through in a few Valentine props? Sure, just let me know and I’ll bring some along.
It’s been so long since I’ve blogged, I’ve almost forgotten how to do it. Thankfully I made it through the holiday rush, which went right up to a few days ago. Babies were born, families loved on each other and I was there to document every moment. This year, I was at the lemon groves, the beach, urban walls and more. How I love all my sweet sweet families! I’ll be taking the next few quiet days and hugging my own sweet family.
Okay friends…this is it! Here are my last mini-session dates for 2014. If you missed the October dates, I still have one or two openings left…so feel free to inquire about those.
Here’s how it works…The sessions are 20 minutes long and they are $100 (for the session fee). There’s an additional flat rate of $425 for all your digital images for your own printing and sharing. You’ll be set up for success with helpful tips for printing and resources.
Babies, donuts and my family. Those are my ‘most liked’ photos on my business social networks. Do you know what that tells me? You guys are a great bunch of people. You also have good taste. Whenever I post a baby photo, people gush over tiny hands dimples and toothless grins. I’m a fan too. And donuts, well, what else can we say. Sometimes one needs a donut to get through the day. It’s all good, just balance it out with some vegetables. And my family…awwww. My loves. They don’t appear too often on my feeds because it’s business, but it makes me smile to think that you love to see me as a wife and mom. It’s the same way I love to see my client families doing what they do.
Hey friends! I’ve got all my October dates and locations picked, so wanted to share them with you here!
