So if you are looking for a maternity photo shoot, contact our studio and we will be happy to clear all your doubts and provide you with the best pregnancy photo shoot. 

For the first picture here, our client wanted a vintage yet edgy photograph. So, we opted for an aesthetic 1800’s door set and a light pink mermaid gown. To make the picture more aesthetic, we added a baby stroller drowsed in flowers and completed the look with a flower tiara. The client’s excitement for the baby to come was pretty evident in all the photographs. Her happiness was also very contagious. For the second shoot, she chooses the all too famous beach background. Creating an aesthetic vibe, the mother wore a soft blue flowing gown that had a cape. The wind making the cape flow and the soft expression on the mothers face perfectly bought out her calming and glowing personality. When her husband joined for the shoot, the picture looked more complete and satisfying. The highlight of the second shoot was the sunset photograph paired with a flower tiara that bought out her tenderness. 

For the third shot, she requested something that would bring out her fierceness and edginess. A red flowing gown and forest background were the obvious choice. The mother looked beautiful and was extremely satisfied with the props. The fourth photograph, she wanted something a bit more elegant and classy. Pairing a white gown with a flower background, the mother looked every bit of royalty. Her elegance and grace were pretty impressive. The photo shoot was a success and we sent home another happy client.

Santa Monica California. Maternity session.

Maternity Photographyis very close to our hearts. Whenever we photograph a mother with a child in her womb, it makes us feel special and responsible.

Photographing pink, blue and white maternity bliss in a scenic forest landscape.

For this outdoor maternity shoot in the nearby Los Angeles forest we opted for three different color schemes. Strong standout colors like pink, blue and white contrast very well with the beautiful down to earth and lush natural tones of the forest. It perfectly highlights the grandeur of maternal beauty.

Pink is named after the flowers of the same name and matches splendidly with a gorgeous flower crown. It frames the baby bump in a natural fashion. According to Wikipedia ”pink is the color most often associated with charm, politeness, sensitivity, tenderness, sweetness, childhood, femininity and the romantic.” It was a perfect match to this lovely mother-to-be having her maternity photos taken in the enchanting Los Angeles forest. Keep loving your precious stomach cargo.

This mysterious tree is so amazing. It looks like it is taken out of a fantastic Hollywood film. Likewise with the soon to be mother model. She looks stunning in her alluring blue dress. Like a movie star icon, this expecting woman is truly captivating if you want the humble opinion of this Los Angeles maternity photographer. Carrying herself and her baby bump like a true professional.

According to Wikipedia, ”US and European surveys shows that blue is the colour most commonly associated with harmony, faithfulness, confidence, distance, infinity, the imagination, cold, and sometimes with sadness. In US and European public opinion polls it is the most popular colour, chosen by almost half of both men and women as their favourite colour. The same surveys also showed that it is associated with intelligence, knowledge, calm and concentration.” True Blue indeed!

Not too mention the lovely white furry companion. A man and a woman´s best friend for sure. Extremely well-behaved and endearing. That dog certainly won Oxana Alex Photography over. The final dress change sees the pet guardian match the color of her four-legged friend. Like a picture perfect human white lily she exudes natural purity and innocence.

Another knockout nature maternity photo session with a stunning maternal beauty and her lovely pet friend. Hope to see you back soon.

A natural born star in the making – first Los Angeles newborn baby photography.

I just recently arrived to bring joy to my family. My mother and father love and adore me. That much I know already. It is a proven fact of my life. From the instant I was born and I bet for a long time before I came into being they loved little ME.

I don´t even have to work up a pose for this Los Angeles newborn photographer. Everybody is happy with the way I am au naturel. I just have to be my sleepy self to take care of this baby photography business. No big deal Mrs. Newborn baby photographer. I got you all covered on this photo-shoot. You all know who is the new talk of the town. Little adorable me who is a natural born star. I have only been on this planet Earth for a short while but I know I got a lot of names already. Apart from my real name I go by darling, baby, precious, dear, gorgeous, beautiful, cute, love, pumpkin to name just a few. And that tally will rise…I know there are plenty more where those nicknames came from.

Back to my first Los Angeles baby photography session. I think my parents called her Oxana Alex, and that she specializes in newborn, baby and family photography. Here in the sunny city I was born into. Los Angeles. In wonderful California by the sea they say. In almighty US of A, land of the free and home of the brave. That sounds alright to me. I can live with that.

I love soft and furry things. Like these blankets to lie on and as cuddly companions. Pets and animals are my favorites. Alive and barking as well as these stuffed toy pet buddies. I already have quite an impressive collection. And there will be many more to come. I will bring them all to my next baby photography session. Or to my first cake smash. I almost said kale smash. After all, I was born into Los Angeles.

I love the soft organic wool clothing this Los Angeles family photographer provides me with. Thank you Oxana Alex. The temperature here is warm, but I like to be prepared for the cold. Happy that Los Angeles is not in the artic region. But I want to go visit snow areas when I get older. Skiing in Big Bear or Mammoth. Or all the way to Lake Tahoe. But for now I am happy to be resting here in this comfortable Brentwood newborn photography studio. Napping time. My parents and Oxana Alex watching over me and taking pictures. What an easy gig this is for me.

A natural born star in the making. Aloha!

Beautiful newborn baby photography session.

All babies are adorable. Innocent and fragile. There is nothing quite like it in the world. And there is nothing that can compare to the beautiful photographic images of a newborn.That is why I love to be a newborn baby photographer in Los Angeles. An infant little child that has just added to the world´s population. An individual that will grow into a complex human being. His or her whole life ahead. We are definitely all unique, but unfortunatley time ticks away without mercy. One can´t turn back the clock, so it is crucial to find a professional Los Angeles newborn baby photographer to take care of business. As soon as possible!

The tiny hands and unused baby feet make this baby photographer go bonkers. That peaceful serene newborn look that unfortunately fades away very fast. I cannot stress the importance of booking the Los Angeles newborn photography session before birth and schedule the date as soon as possible after birth. That sleepy infant look is usually gone after three weeks. We all want that newborn baby photography magic to be captured by a baby photographer who has the right equipment, skills and experience. Props like soft angel wings, cushy blankets, cuddly toys, flower crowns, specialized furniture, rustic beds and multiple color backgrounds can make or break a baby photography session. Catering to the wants and needs of the child as well as the parents. That is what Oxana Alex Photography is all about. We aim to please in family, maternity and baby photography and grow an extended family of satisfied repeat customers.

Look at this bundle of joy resting in the soft cuddly flower adorned hammock. You don´t have to be religious to understand such a sight is truly a gift from God. Mother Nature holding out her tree branch, the beautiful little infant suspended in air like the storks just brought the baby gift wrapped to the family. An angel reborn. Worth much more that its weight in gold. No doubt about that. A precious long awaited darling addition to this overjoyed family.

The love is evident in all these family photos. I am just grateful that I am a Los Angeles newborn photographer allowed to capture these cherished family moments.

Cake smash and a bubble bath. Baby first birthday photo session.

Silence please! This is my 1 year old photoshoot.

I want to hear the squashing sound when I stomp on my birthday cake. The candy garnished cake looks like strange alien like Top Hat if you ask me. Not a Bowler, Fedora, Boater, Stingy Brim, Trilby, Panama, Porkpie or Homburg hat for sure.

By the way, I finished that homemade chocolate cake you made for me. That one went superfast. It was delicious!!! Thank you, may I have another. Pretty please.

Next year I want three of the same chocolate cakes but made to look like cowboy hats. Two to chow down, and one to put on my head and ride into the sunset together with my wooden horse Bumble.  Or at least to bed. Stomach full.

This blue one is not homemade. I am still small but I can tell. And you better believe I can judge quality. I am after all your offspring. It was sort of good for a few bites and I liked the color, but to be honest it lacked my favorite ingridient; CHOCOLATE. My parents know me best. So next time remember this mom and dad. I´ll rather take three of the homemade chocolate cakes.

I start out by joyfully inspecting this blue cake here. Quality controlling it. Judging it by looks and then finally by taste. And finding it way inferior to your homemade one. The cake manufacturers are watching too many of these Cake Wars or Cake Boss shows if you want my humble birthday opinion. All style over substance. Not enough chocolate.

So I will smash this cake. Tear it apart. And take pride in it. Show my discontent. And have fun my way. It is after all my birthday. The most important day of the year. Or maybe Christmas Day. I can´t quite remember which day yields the most gifts.

Anyway, stomach is filled to the brim. So I will play with this cake instead. Amusement and excitement on my big day here in Los Angeles. Bring out the cameras. Family photographers. My own baby photographer Los Angeles. Or make that child photographer Los Angeles. I want my Kodak moments. And this cake smash is definitely one of them.

I´ll even happily indulge in a bath. As long as I have my duck companions with me and mom and dad by my side.

Keep them bubbles coming. That bubble count can still go way way up. I want them raining down over me and my ducks. It is after all my big day. That makes me the boss. Capiche?

I am done with cake for now. Pretty soon I´ll be all cleaned up,  and ready to play and cuddle some more.

My first favorite cake smash session. Thank you my own private baby photographer Los Angeles.

And thank you mom and dad!
