NOW BOOKING OUTDOOR SESSIONS
STUDIO SESSIONS ARE STILL ON HOLD BUT WE HAVE A WAIT LIST GOING
Due to our current shelter in place order by Gov. Gavin Newson, Sophia Grace Photography is partially open. We are currently booking outdoor sessions only. Studio sessions including posed newborn and maternity are on hold but are adding names to our wait list. If you are currently pregnant or just had a baby and looking for a posed newborn session please contact us to be placed on the waiting list. We will also be photographing "older" newborns once the order is lifted for those babies born during the shelter in place order. We are currently replying to all phone calls and email so please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions during this time.
From the moment you find out you are pregnant everything changes. You feel the pitter patter of life growing inside you and you know that this baby holds your heart in their tiny little hands. Your newborn baby is the most precious gift and nothing else will ever compare. This is one of your life's most defining moments. From this day forward everything changes. You have a new reason for living. You have a new reason to love, and just weeks from now your tiny newborn baby will no longer fit so tiny in your arms. They are only little for so long. Let us help you preserve those memories forever.

Meet Cecilia Huerta, the Face Behind Sophia Grace Photography
San Diego Based Maternity and Newborn Photographer
Hi! I'm Cecilia and I am so excited you are here because this means you are interested in a photography session with me. I love and am passionate about what I do and photographing maternity, newborn babies, cake smashes, and families is what I do best. As a mother of 4 I can tell you that life gets busy but it is important to stop, take a deep breath, and enjoy those sweet moments if even just for a few minutes. My passion for photography began before I had children, but my passion for photographing babies began when I had my own. My kiddos are my world and having beautiful baby photos of them allows me to stop and remember those special and defining moments, the love we share, and how fast they continue to grow and develop their own identity. To me photos not only tell stories, they celebrate real moments in time and become your legacy. They are punctuation marks in the story of your life.
I've been photographing babies for almost 10 years now and have gained a lot of experience in that time. I have also invested in photography education, a gorgeous maternity client closet, hand made props for your newborn baby, and I've scouted the best photography locations in San Diego County all because I want to craft, create and curate the most beautiful portraits of your family. I know choosing and hiring a photographer is not a quick decision, but my promise to you is that we will work together to truly capture this defining moment in your life. That 10, 20, or 30 years from now you will look at the perfect newborn photo of your baby, child or family and it will invoke a feeling of happiness, peace, and love.
Cecilia Huerta, owner of Sophia Grace Photography Studio, is an Award Winning Photographer with a studio based in Chula Vista, California (in South San Diego County), who specializes in fine art maternity and newborn photography. She will provide you with a full luxury portrait experience that is designed with two main goals in mind: to capture your life defining moments and make them last forever; and to inspire confidence and to make you love and celebrate motherhood at all stages, specially during pregnancy and birth.

Are all newborn sessions held in your studio?
Posed Newborn sessions are all done in our studio. While we do offer Outdoor newborn sessions, these are only held when the weather permits it and depending on the temperature outside your baby main remain fully clothed and/or wrapped.
Do you ever offer in-home newborn sessions?
Yes, but in-home newborn sessions are lifestyle in format and do not include any props from the studio. If you want posed newborn photos of your baby a studio session is best.
Is my baby too old for Newborn Photos?
Ideally, I like to photograph newborn babies between 7-14 days post birth. This is the time when babies have established somewhat of a routine with mom but still sleep deeply and can remain in curled up womb-like poses. Typically, the younger the baby the better. But to be honest, there is no magic time frame. Some babies do better early on while others do better later. Some babies make their arrival early as well and this can buy you time. For preemie newborn babies I prefer to use their gestational age. Preemies can be photographed as newborn until their actual due date, give or take. It is important to understand that newborns are never turned away in our studio for their age, however; certain poses may not be possible as they get older.
When is the best time to schedule my maternity session?
This is really dependent on your own preference and health concerns. While I personally recommend waiting until you are 32-36 weeks along, this will vary by how you are feeling and how big you want your belly to be. I’ve had moms come in as early as 28 weeks and moms come in as late as 39 weeks. The closer you are to your due date the bigger your belly will be but keep in mind that some moms experience swelling in the last trimester and may not feel their best the last weeks before delivery.
Do you provide hair and make-up for my maternity session?
We are happy to provide hair and make-up artistry for your maternity photography session at an additional cost. My hair and make-up artists know how to get you camera ready for the best and most natural results. Camera ready make-up is different from event make-up so if you are working with your own stylist please make sure you ask. Make-up with built in sunscreen should be avoided and shimmer highlighters should be discretely if used at all. Please email me for more details.
