  • Welcome!

    My name is Mary Elizabeth Lehmann but I go by "Meg" :-) I believe photography is an art and every image should be crafted and composed completely dependent on the subject – who they are and what they represent.

    I specialize in newborn, child and family photography in the Laguna Niguel area and have been a photographer for about 10 years. I am a Mommy of three wonderful children who are my everything and I have them to thank for propelling my photography and career into what it is today.

    I am so happy you decided to check out my page! I look forward to working with you and your family! If you're in a hurry you can always give me a call or text me at 949-412-2239 to book your session!

Newborn & Baby Photography

Bringing your newborn into the world is a moment you will cherish for the rest of your life. These small, delicate creatures grow up so fast that it seems like if you blink you miss the newborn stage. I want to help you capture this small window of time and make it last forever because newborn photography  is more than about taking photos of a sleeping baby, it is about making the most precious of times stand still. Mary Elizabeth Photography is a newborn photographer serving Laguna Niguel, CA, and the surrounding area.

Newborn photography is all about timing, and not just from the camera’s point of view. The best time for a session with me is between 3-14 days old, although I believe the very best time is between 5-7 days. The perfect time to schedule an appointment is when you are still pregnant, because these spots fill up so fast. If there is an available time slot and you have already had your baby, I will definitely not hold that spot back for you. For newborn photography, time is of the essence and it is the newborn’s essence that will make these photos so perfect and endearing.

It seems every movement your newborn makes is something you wish you could capture and keep forever. Her eyes opening and glancing around. His mouth open as he sleeps. Even when crying, there is something precious and adorable about it. There really isn’t a moment to lose when it comes to newborn photography, and I will be certain not to miss one of them.

Our newborn photography appointments at Mary Elizabeth Photography usually last between 2-4 hours, which allows for feeding time, diaper changes, and any other needs your newborn may have. At Mary Elizabeth Photography, the camera always waits for the newborn because with such little time at this stage, it is wise not to rush.

The location of where you want to take these photos is also very important. Our studio is equipped to be the perfect setting for newborn photography and I am certain to make you feel like you never stepped out of the comfort of your own home. If you prefer to take these photos at your own home, I am more than willing to accommodate, although for an extra charge. I want you and your newborn to feel at ease for every second of the newborn photography photo shoot so baby’s comfort and grace will come out in every image.

Having a baby photographer present at the hospital may or may not be sufficient to capture your baby’s first few hours of life. Most parents, however, are looking for something much more personalized. They want a memory that will last a lifetime and beyond, which is why you need an infant photographer in Southern California who will work with your son or daughter’s schedule, catching the most precious moments of those early days and months. As a baby photographer expert, Mary Elizabeth understands that infants change rapidly, sometimes almost daily, and you want to document every step of this unique journey. Her attention to detail and your child’s needs, moods, and movements make her the premier baby photographer in the Laguna Niguel area. With a variety of first year plans to capture all the moments you never want to forget, Mary Elizabeth will help you make sure that while your child will indeed grow up too fast, his or her infancy will be preserved forever.

Before you make your decision of a newborn photographer, I will personally conduct an in-person or over-the-phone consultation with you in order to ensure you have a chance to discuss your preferences or anything in particular you are looking for from your newborn photography session. If you have questions about prints, costs, or editing, please visit the Sessions page under the About tab. If you are ready for a session with your newborn photographer, please fill out the information in the contact page or give me a call at 949-412-2239 and I will reach out to you shortly!

Orange County Engagement Photos

Mary Elizabeth Photography also offers excellent engagement photographer services. What makes me different than other engagement photographers? I think engagement photography should be an enjoyable experience for all parties involved and will work diligently to make sure that is the case.

My desire in being an engagement photographer is to capture the uniqueness of each love story. I think engagement photography should tell a beautiful story of how two unique individuals discovered love like they had never known. I want my engagement photos to represent a constant reminder to the couple of why they fell in love in the first place.

Family Photography in California

Mary Elizabeth’s patience with children and her keen sense of how to capture moments as opposed to staged shots helps make her one of the premier family photographers. When you are looking for someone to capture the essence of your family, you need a family photographer who is willing to step out of the studio and spend the time necessary to get to know your family. Any family photographer in Laguna Niguel can arrange your family and take the standard posed picture, but Mary Elizabeth is the perfect photographer who will translate your family’s personality into a work of art. The goal of a quality family photographer in Laguna Niguel is to create a moment that will be appreciated for years to come. Mary Elizabeth spends time with your family to help your children relax in front of the camera and help you find that perfect moment when the laughter and smiles are real. For your family’s most precious memories, choose a photographer who understands how to capture every moment of a child’s life, from infancy to adulthood.
