Denise Hurdle Photography

Denise is a Newborn Baby photographer based in South Orange County CA. She has been in business for 6 years, 4 of those years have been focused primarily on Newborns.

Photography is what I love to do. I am a former Daycare owner and Preschool teacher. I have a passion for newborns, they are my first love and sweet spot!

I use my life's experience to create a safe calm environment for baby during the session. Newborn Sessions are baby led meaning your baby's physiology and personality determine the poses they can do I won't ever force a pose and I watch for queues from baby to make sure they are comfortable, safe and happy the entire time!

My love for photography comes more from wanting to capture moments and memories that can take you back to a place in time that has passed. I don’t want to just take your picture I want to capture who you and your family are at this moment in time.

Photos carry feelings good or bad. When we look at them it takes us back to that place and we experience the same feelings as the time the photo was taken. I want you to always remember that feeling of taking that little person home and those first few weeks that are such a blur but such a blessing. I want to capture your personality and emotions. So that your children and their children will know you even if it is only through photos.

Capturing the essence of a new baby for parents is such an honor, one I will never take lightly!

What others are saying…

This woman is amazing. I’m so glad we got connected for her to do our newborn photoshoot! Our little one was not being an easy client but Denise was incredibly patient and sweet throughout the shoot, rocking, swaying and calming her over and over and over again. She was thoughtful and prepared with cute outfits & props in the colors I had mentioned I wanted. I love how many endless options of colors, wraps, headbands and props she has in her studio. You can tell she has so much experience with newborns and getting those squishy little bodies in adorable positions and wraps. I was SO impressed by the whole experience we had and will totally be doing more photoshoots to capture the moments ahead! If your looking for a sweet, thoughtful and experienced photographer this is your go-to person!! Thanks so much Denise! We are treasuring these photos you captured forever!
