Washington DC Maternity and Pregnancy Photographer | Baby on the Way

With maternity sessions, I often find myself trying to give my clients what I wish I had from my own pregnancy. Just as I was planning my own maternity portraits, I was interrupted by pre-term labor that kept in the hospital for a week, and then on bedrest for almost three more. I didn’t have the opportunity to capture my pregnancy in the way I wanted to, and I so wish I had. I wish I had images like these to remember that time by. I wish I had images to remind me of what that time was like. And while my body felt different and new and unsure, it was also miraculous and amazing and wonderful. I was so thrilled to photograph Ayanah for her maternity portraits, here are some of my favorites from our session - enjoy!

2019 Motherhood Event | Northern VA Family Photographer

This year’s Motherhood Event has now come and gone, such a bittersweet feeling for me. Sweet because I adore it, but now I have to wait a full year to do it again! It’s such a joy getting to meet with clients again, see how their babies have grown, and capture images of them together.

No matter the session or time of year, capturing mothers with their babies is so important to me. I know how difficult it can be to get images of you with your child. Mothers are often the ones taking the photos in their family, so they can’t get in them too. But our children crave images with us in them. They want to see us represented in our family history. That’s why this event speaks to me.

It was an honor and a joy to see so many families again. I can’t wait until next year!

Baby Boy Wesley's First Look | Washington DC Newborn Photographer

I adore getting to see families over and over again. Getting to watch your families grow is one of the things I cherish most. I’m so thankful that so many of my clients choose to return for sessions for years to come, that you trust me to capture such momentous events for your family. Getting to see Wesley’s family again (he’s baby #2 for this gorgeous family!) was no different. This job is a treasure and a dream.

Northern VA Baby Photographer | Scheduling a Newborn Session

Most clients find me through a Google search, but more and more often people are finding me through instagram. If you haven't already, make sure to give Kate Juliet Photography a follow (you'll see images from sessions and lots of peeks behind the scenes in my stories). You can follow me on instagram here.

One of the things I'm asked most often is how to schedule a newborn session when we don't know exactly when baby will arrive. I recommend holding newborn sessions within 14 days of delivery when babies are their sleepiest and most curled up. When you secure your session I reserve time on my calendar around your due date and ask that you let me know when baby comes. Once baby is born, we’ll confirm the exact time and date for your session from there. Sessions are typically held in the morning, when babies are the happiest and the light is best (and you’ll have had a chance to sleep as much as possible). And of course if you and your doctor schedule a planned induction or c-section we can always arrange a time for your session in advance.
