6 Reasons To Hold Your Newborn Session In A Studio | DC Baby Photographer

Here are some of the top reasons why you should consider holding your session in a studio:

1 - You don't have to clean.

Those first few weeks home are a whirlwind: filled with feedings, loving on your new baby, and creating new routines. What’s the thing that happens less often that used to? Cleaning. You have better things to do with your time than making your space is "photo worthy" for your session (you could spend that time sleeping). Holding your session in a studio means that you don't have to worry about cramming your things into a closet last minute or worrying about having a new person (me) in your space.

2 - The studio has everything you need for your session.

How many times have you put something down and promptly forgotten where you left it? If you're anything like me, it happens all the time. I keep the studio stocked with everything you need for your session, even things you never considered like a white noise machine, extra pacifiers, diapers, and more. I even maintain a complete wardrobe for mothers to borrow clothing for the session. You just need to bring yourself and your baby, I'll take care of the rest.

3 - Your session actually goes more quickly.

It may not seem intuitive, but sessions actually go more quickly in the studio - even when you consider the time it takes to drive there. In-home sessions mean you'll be cleaning before the session even starts, and once the session begins it takes extra time to figure out where to capture your images and move furniture around if necessary. And of course, after the session everything needs to get cleaned up and moved back to the right place again.

4 - The studio is made to make your baby comfortable, and your images beautiful.

Everything about the studio was carefully selected to create the most beautiful images possible. From the color on the walls, the flooring, curtains, and all of the available wraps and clothing options - it's all there to make the process as easy for you as possible. 

5 - Great light, guaranteed.

Every photographer knows that the secret to amazing images is great light. Without amazing light, images just aren't the same. The light in my studio is always perfect for portraits, so you never have to worry about if light too harsh, too dark, or too anything-else-that-ins't-quite-perfect.

6 - It's a calm space.

My studio was designed to be calm environment for parents, babies, and siblings. Just entering the space can make you breath a sigh of relief. Parents have an opportunity to sit and enjoy the time with their family, and you can feel confident knowing that all the details are taken care of for you.

Waiting for Baby Number Four | Loudoun County Maternity Photographer

There are few higher professional honors than to hold a session for a fellow photographer. Kate is a photographer herself and I’ve gotten to know her over the last several years. I first met her for her newborn session for baby #3 (you can see more of those images here). More recently she visited me in the studio again for a maternity session while she waits for baby #4.

Here are some of my favorite images from our session together - enjoy!

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!

Maternity Session on Film | Northern VA Pregnancy Photographer

There is something so very special about analog film. A quality that can’t be replicated with a digital camera no matter how hard you try. It’s a beautiful, authentic way to capture portraits. Ashley and I met at one of my favorite outdoor locations for her maternity session. Here are are some of my favorites - enjoy!
