Sneakpeak: The Velveteen Buddha – { Tarzana Newborn Photographer }

20130423_HAsante_14dayold_-0461-EditI am an African-American photographer, but this baby is the first African-American newborn, other than ones I’ve created with my husband, that I’ve had a chance to photograph!  The baby’s mom got a kick out of me saying that I didn’t know many black people.  LOL.  It is the San Fernando Valley, after all. Diverse with many colors, just not brown.

Now, if I could only photograph what me and my friends jokingly call The Unicorn of the Valley – a chocolate, baby girl. Someday.  Well, maybe sooner than later.  I found a meetup group called PAAC – Parents of African American Children (some people who have black kids, aren’t black themselves) are have an inkling that my portfolio is going to get more diverse quickly. But of the currently pregnant women in this group, everyone’s having a boy.

I’d love to be the Angelina Jolie of baby photographers – photograph babes from all the nations. 🙂
