Each session includes Natasha's time and talent, props, equipment, editing, a proofing gallery, and 12 digital images for download printable up to size 8x10.

Sessions are booked 3 months in advance as there are limited spots available. This also allows time to plan session details.

Sessions are held in my home studio in Miami, FL or on location within 20 miles from my home (excluding newborn sessions). Sessions beyond 20 miles from my home may be subject to a mileage fee.

For more information, please refer to my pricing guide – available upon request.


Newborn sessions are reserved during your second or third trimester (at least 3 months in advance) by scheduling 2 tentative dates in order to remain flexible as labor and delivery can be unpredictable sometimes.

Newborn sessions are available in my home studio for infants between 5-11 days old. I have everything needed at my fingertips in my studio to make sure your baby is safe and comfortable at all times.

Twins and older babies between 12-21 days old require more time for soothing, feeding, and posing. Please add an additional $60 fee for twins or older babies.

Your baby will only be this tiny for a short time and my hope is that these portraits will be cherished in your hearts forever.


Maternity photos are usually taken between 32-36 weeks and are booked 3 months in advance. They may be taken indoors in the morning OR outdoors in the afternoon for best lighting and most comfortable temperature for the mommy-to-be.

Props & Safety

Safety is always first when posing your baby. I have been trained via online courses and mentored locally on how to best achieve poses that stay true to the art form of newborn photography. I also have studied the developmental stages from infancy through childhood, and have learned soothing and posing techniques to make sure the process of photographing your newborn baby goes smoothly so that your little one’s safety and comfort is maintained at all times.

All sessions are styled by me. Props, blankets, and outfits are cleaned and sanitized before every session. Props and outfits of sentimental value are always welcomed and we work together to make your portraits an investment you will enjoy displaying proudly for years to come.

Your images

Five complimentary digital images are included in each package. As an artist, I work carefully to provide the best quality editing for each image in your proofing gallery.

Capturing these professional portraits of this precious time in your life would not be complete if your images are not showcased proudly. Your investment will be most appreciated for years to come by printing your images and sharing them with loved ones. For this reason, an online gallery is presented to you 3 to 6 weeks from your session date. You are then able to select your favorite images from the gallery and choose the products you would like. I offer collections and an a la carte menu; a digital negative, printable up to size 8x10, is provided for every print purchased. Once your product order is placed, your digital images are made available for instant download.

About Me

Hi! I’m Natasha, this is me in FULL BLOOM!

I’m so flattered that you’re here. The way I see it, you and I are friends from the future! I appreciate that you are taking the time to read this section and get to know me a little better, before entrusting me with one of the most valuable little people in your life.

I’m a quirky girl, a fast-paced speaker who makes funny sounds with her voice and silly faces at your kids. When I’m excited, I have been known to make up a song (or two) on the spot, about the most random topic, to get you to smile and feel comfortable around me and in front of my camera. I have a weakness for chocolate and pizza (in no particular order). I enjoy meeting new people. I’m a nostalgic, a dreamer and thinker of ‘wondermus’ things, and I LOVE photography.

Before I became a photographer, I worked as a teacher in grades K-8 for 6 years. I earned my master’s degree in Mental Health Counseling in 2012. I continue to work in the community helping guide young adults and their families.

Photography for me renews my inner calm and adds to my source of joy! The importance of living in the present moment with a spirit of gratitude is a daily goal for me. As a photographer, it brings me great fulfillment to use photography as a means to preserve the moments in your life that you are most thankful for. What I’ve always loved about photography is how an image can move us from within, even while we are standing perfectly still. It has the power to take us back in time and help us remember the moments we hope to revisit continually.

There's nothing sweeter than the innocence and authenticy of a child. A great day for me consists of doing what I'm passionate about; for me, that's being near a new little life and creating art through my photography.

Now, enough about me. What about YOU? Let’s capture YOUR life in FULL BLOOM!

Much Love,

Natasha Santaella
Bloom So Bright Photography
