Mily Cooper PHOTOGRAPHY - Los Angeles Best Newborn and Maternity Photographer
Welcome to my World !
welcome (13).jpg

My name is Mily Cooper and I am a photographer, specialized in Maternity, Newborn, Babies,

Children and Family portraiture..

I have been working as a professional photographer since 2013 and I feel very blessed to be able to make a living doing something I love so much. We have been 10+ years in business, photographing over 800 newborn babies and over 550 pregnant moms, what a blessing !

My style is classic and timeless. My newborn props have a vintage touch. I am always looking for tiny treasures with texture and detail that I can incorporate in my images.

For our Maternity clients, we offer a closet with over 100 gowns curated with a lot of patience and love so every mom can find many beautiful options to wear and leave that aspect of the session stress free.

My home studio is located in Woodland Hills, but I serve the greater Los Angeles and Ventura Counties.

I love the outdoors and you can also find me any day shooting in the beautiful mountains of Southern California. It's just gorgeous here !

Mily Cooper Photography has been listed as one of the TOP 20 best newborn photographers

in Santa Monica and the larger LA Area by Expertise for 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019, 2020, 2021,

2022, 2023 and 2024 !

We also have been at the top of the list of Maternity Photographers in Yelp for the San Fernando Valley

and Los Angeles for many years now.

I am pretty humbled and excited to be part of such an incredible talented group.

The most important thing for me is providing my clients with an amazing and safe experience.

I've been trained in person by some of the best newborn and maternity photographers in the world

on newborn posing, angles, light, composition and of course baby safety:

Luisa Dunn, Kelly Brown, Elise Gow,

Marta Ponsko, Diana Robles, etc. A big priority for me is to keep pushing myself all the time

and I continue to invest in my education every year.

I've been part of Portrait Masters and several other professional photography conventions.

Learning never ends for me and I am constantly looking for new challenges, learning new techniques

and being up to date with the latest trends.

Custom photography is an investment, that's for sure.

But life goes by very fast and before you know it, your newborn baby will be giggling, getting teeth,

crawling, walking, running...

You will never regret capturing these special moments forever, to share, to remember, to cherish and to pass

on to future generations.

Thank you for visiting my website !

Should've had her shoot my engagement photos a few years ago!

I booked Mily back in August for a maternity session. She came to my house to photograph the milk bath and then we had another session where she took shots of my husband and me at Orcutt Ranch.
Throughout the whole experience she was very kind and accommodating!
For the milk bath, she brought a couple lacey dresses for me to wear, but I already had my own, that I used. It took very little time to set up and prep the bath + flowers and her equipment in the bathroom. We were in and out within an hour. I've had photographer experiences in the past where idk how to pose, yet she always had suggestions so I wouldn't just be looking lost the whole time.
When we continued the shoot with my husband at Orcutt Ranch she provided a bunch of gorgeous flowy dresses and cool flower crowns for me to wear. And directed how we should pose. Should've had her shoot my engagement photos a few years ago!
She said I'll be able to pick out the photos in a digital gallery within 10 business days yet I'm confident that they'll look great. I had a sneak peak of the ones with the milk bath already, so I'm pretty excited.
And throughout the whole experience, she maintained social distancing, only getting close enough to fix my hair or help me into dresses. Plus she wore a mask the entire time. Covid-safe choice for photography.
If you want a kind photographer with reasonable prices, book Mily. She's artistic yet, works methodically to get the job done - no frills.

Most talented photographer I've ever worked with

Mily is Truly AMAZING!!! This woman is honestly the most talented photographer I have ever worked with! As a social media influencer, I've actually had many photoshoots and I've never been so impressed! The quality of her photos are flawless! Her work ethic and how she makes you feel so comfortable is such a plus especially with being pregnant! I forgot about my sciatica pain for the entire session because she made it so fun and made me feel so beautiful! Now let's talk about her MATERNITY WARDROBE!!! I mean, WOW, the dresses and accessories are to die for! I can't pick a favorite pic as they are all so unique and special! She's so creative and knows how to work with making your best features and angles stand out! Thank you so much Mily Cooper, you honestly easily became my fave photographer.

Hands down, the best children photographer

Mily is hands down the best photographer I've ever worked with. She can make miracles happen with kids. I had a couple of shoots with her where I didn't think anything would come out and then I get proofs and I am so amazed. She is talented beyond belief. Her photography is ART! Thanks Mily! #lifelongclient

Patient and kind

Mily was absolutely amazing!!! She handled both out maternity and newborn shoot for our twins. She was so patient and kind with our 5 year old (who wasn't in the best of moods) and new exactly what to do with the twins. The pictures are so wonderful and I'll truly cherish them forever. Thank you, Mily!

Very sweet and good energy. We absolutely loved our maternity session. Outside but still private. We put ourselves in her hands and she delivered. It was so hard to choose. Such amazing photos.
We went with the full package. Which will include a canvas which we can't wait to receive and as stressful as it can be being sleep deprived the end result was worth it. Totally beats out taking photos at hospital. It takes a lot of work to tease those photos out of an infant. You just have to go with it and she is experienced to know what to do. Don't be surprised if your baby peepees!! hehehe. Sooo cute!!!!!

Flexible and helpful

We were referred to Mily by a close friend for our first babys newborn picture shoot. Just looking at her gallery online - we could tell that she was one of the most talented photographers in the newborn genre. Her pricing was also much more reasonable than photographers that weren't nearly as impressive. Working with Mily was an amazing process. She was super sweet, has a great studio with tons of props, outfits, colors and ideas. She was also super flexible. Our little boy came 8 weeks early and completely surprised us. Mily was very sweet in adjusting our appointments and schedule time to work with our amazing little preemie. She really helped us thru an initial scary time with such a little angel. I highly recommend her for any special moment in life that you want to capture and treasure forever!
