The Details


Your custom photography experience starts with an in-home consultation to understand your style and your child’s personality so we can deliver the portraits that you will cherish forever. We then plan the shoot that you want: at a special location for gorgeous outdoor portraits; at your home for images with extra sentimentality; or in our studio for a classic, timeless look. After the shoot, we help you design your wall art, so you know the photographs will look great on your walls before you purchase them.

All photo sessions are on the weekends. Due to demand, we are currently booking out one month in advance. Please book early so we have time to plan your custom session.



We photograph your newborn at our home studio in Encinitas or in the comfort of your own home. The only thing we require is a warm environment with plenty of soft light for capturing timeless images of your newborn.

In order to ensure we have room in our schedule for your newborn session, please contact us at least one month prior to your due date. We will schedule the shoot around your due date, but leave time in our schedule a few weeks before and after to account for early or late appearances by your baby.

Each newborn is different, so we tailor our session to the needs of your child. We are extremely gentle and patient with your newborn, and create a calm, warm, and comfortable environment to capture your peacefully sleeping baby. To accommodate frequent feedings and soothing, expect your session to last up to three hours. We recommend photographing newborns when they are 5-14 days old.

Little Sprout Photography focuses on the emotion and details of those first moments – the incredible love you feel for your new baby, your baby sleeping peacefully, and the little fingers, toes and soft skin of your newborn. You’ll cherish these once-in-a-lifetime looks and you won’t believe that they were ever that small!  



We love to photograph 3-24 month old babies at our home studio in Encinitas or outdoors. We frequently include both studio shots and outdoor locations to keep your baby interested and excited. Babies this age look best in simple outfits or just a diaper cover. We have simple and soft diaper covers and accessories for your baby to wear. We can discuss styling for the shoot during your in-home consultation.

Your baby’s session will last approximately 1 ½ hours, allowing for breaks and location changes. We make the session fun for you and your baby, and pride ourselves on connecting with your baby. We love getting to know each of our tiny clients!

We focus on the many different expressions babies have and keep the setting simple and beautiful. From the chubby legs and pure smiles of your baby to the wonder in their eyes at all that is new, we love to capture these magical moments, as we all know they grow so fast.


Active kids do well in an outdoor setting. Kids look adorable in bare feet and dressed in comfortable, simple clothing. Kid/family shoots last approximately 1 ½ hours, allowing for location changes and for time to let the kids open up and have fun. The most genuine images usually come when kids have a chance to be kids.

We strive to capture your kids’ personalities, through their silly looks, striking, serious eyes, shy smiles, and other unique expressions. These active sessions are a lot of fun and keep us on our toes!
