Welcome!

Hi there! I'm Cathy Sujishi, founder and principal shooter at Heartprint Images. My team and I work to create images that leave indelible impressions, or heartprints, for the families and others who entrust us with their portrait investment.

We specialize in maternity, newborn and family photography. For newborns, we offer in-studio custom sessions after baby comes home from the hospital. Sessions may be done in your home if you prefer. We also offer in-hospital First Moments & Fresh 48 documentation. Check out this blog post for more details on that. 

Our Laguna Hills, California studio is just blocks from the "El Toro Y" 5 & 405 interchanges. You can take a peek inside via our video tour here on our site. For Family, Maternity and Senior Sessions, we prefer to work on-location in one of our favorite shooting spots, and we're open to new ones that you might suggest as well. Take a look at our "Location Ideas" page and see if you find a look you'd like.

Headshots are another offering in our studio or on location.

We love collaborating with clients to bring ideas to life. For example, one family wanted to document their two daughters' championship softball season in a creative and fun way. So, we did the whole session at a softball field - in the dugout, on the diamond, on the bleachers, etc. The girls were in their element, and they now have beautiful portraits that truly capture that victorious time. You can check out the results from that session here. Another treasured client wanted some vintage-looking shots at the train station. It took some extra effort to time things right, but it was so worth it! Check out that session here.

We'd love the opportunity to earn your trust, and help you create a collection of portraits that will be treasured for decades to come. Thank you for stopping by!
