first 48 gallery


There is nothing like a brand new baby.
First 48 sessions are held in the hospital or birthing center within 48 hours of birth before baby and mom go home.
This is when babies are captured at their newest ~ with their flaky skin and wrinkled feet ~ and families are captured together in their very first days.

Due to the unpredictable nature of deliveries, I accept a limited number of First 48 sessions each year,
so I encourage booking while you are in your second or third trimester.
Last minute bookings are accommodated when possible.

I am currently booking sessions throughout the Northern VA area.
Contact me for details and booking information.



"I had the pleasure of having three sessions with Kate leading up to and after the birth of my second child. She is the perfect mix of easy-going, kind and professional. I chose to hire her after seeing some photos she had taken of a friend which were amazing and then speaking to her. I loved the simple style of her photos and I knew that I would be in good hands."
