This little guy came to see me at Riverside Newborn Photo Studio at 5 weeks old and where he is on the older side for a newborn session, Baby M, did just beautifully. Take a look at his little cheeks and those gorgeous lashes! It's true that the best lashes on are the fellas!

Baby M came with his mama and his grandparents and it was so fun seeing these grandparents so excited for their grandson's newborn photo session. What a treat it was to visit with them.

We were able to do a full newborn session with Baby M. Sometimes babies at 5 weeks can't sleep long enough to get through some of the sleepy poses and so we do more awake lifestyle poses but mama had her heart set on classic newborn posing, so she nursed and I rocked and we gave it a go. This is what we came up with! Isn't he the most adorable little guy?




Diane Bartoo Photography offers newbornbabyfamily and baby photography in the Inland Empire, Riverside, Corona, Norco, Chino, Eastvale, San Bernardino and surrounding cities. Ask us about our Watch-Me-Grow and Cake Smash Sessions!

I am an award-winning Maternity and Newborn photographer.  As a mama of 3 boys, I can be found chasing my little ones with a camera in hand. That's where my heart and passion for newborn and family photography was found. Theresa is graphic artist at heart, which meshes well in our studio (she handles everything outside of photography)! Theresa and I can often be found shopping in antique stores, looking for the perfect blend of vintage/modern props and blanket backdrops to use during newborn and baby photography sessions for our littlest clients. 

We love capturing the bond between mom, dad, siblings and your precious new bundle of joy with our family photography. Let us elegantly swaddle your baby from head to toe with our exquisitely knitted items! We carry the finest cashmere, angora, mohair and merino wool wraps, bonnets and hats for both boys and girls, newborn to baby. We also carry a wide selection of boutique bow and tie backs for baby girl photography sessions. Your newborn baby is our sole focus and we create heirloom quality art pieces that you will be proud to share with your family for years to come. 

But most of all, Theresa and I create a warm, loving and fun experience for our clients. The little ones aren't the only pampered members of the family: we have snacks and comfy chairs so all you need to do do is just sit back, relax and enjoy as we make lasting memories together!

These precious first days only happen once, so don't let these moments get away! Let us capture your newborn baby in in the timeless and elegant style of photography that we are so well known for!

Call us to book your session.  We look forward to working with and your family!

Niki - Oh my gosh those cheeks!!!!! Swoon! Riverside, CA is beyond lucky to have a newborn photographer as talented as you are!
Alysse - I love this beautiful newborn portrait for a 5 week old baby! That is not the normal age to photograph babies, BUT you definitely pulled it off!
Kathy R - What a precious little baby boy! He looks so suggly and comfortable in the basket. You'd never know he was 5 weeks old, he looks so tiny!
Ruben - Oh, he's such a little cutie holding the knitted teddy! This is a really beautiful newborn (5 weeks old!) image. I'm sure the proud parents loved it! It would look so nice in baby's nursery!
Esther - What a beautiful little baby, and a great post on who you are and what you both do. I am sure many families in Riverside will be thrilled to hear of your photography services. Your work is beautiful!
Diane Bartoo - Thank you! Yes, this mama is thrilled with her newborn photo!
Diane Bartoo - Achieving those gorgeous newborn photos is definitely a lot harder with older than 12 day old babies, but not impossible!
Diane Bartoo - Where 5 weeks is not the norm for a newborn session, beautiful images can still happen. Please feel free to contact me for a newborn session in Riverside CA
Christine D - I am so impressed with this beautiful newborn portrait...I cannot believe this baby was five weeks old! Sometimes you just can't get babies in within the first 14 days for their portrait session, but this image proves that you can still get beautiful baby portraits with an older baby!
Ashley S. - It's such a beautiful baby photo, I can hardly believe the baby is already 5 weeks old! I'm sure momma is going to be thrilled to have a classic newborn pose.
Jenny Storment - Baby M is too cute as a little bear I really can't handle the cuteness going on in here. Great job on this newborn session.
