Oskar’s Newborn Mini Session | Sterling VA Newborn Photographer

Did you know that I offer wrapped newborn mini sessions?  I do!  They are held on weekdays only, focus on your sweet baby, swaddled up and sleepy.  Pop over to my rates page for more detail.

I love newborn sessions and this little boy was just after my own heart. So easy to photograph as he slept nearly the entire time, which meant we were able to pull of a bucket pose, which isn’t often accomplished during a wrapped newborn mini session.

The grays and neutrals, requested by his parents, worked so well and made their baby boy stand out even more.

 

If you are looking for a newborn photographer in the Northern Virginia area, I would love to work with you.  Posed newborn photos are taken at my in-home studio in Sterling, VA when your baby is between 6-14 days old.  It is important to book your newborn session no later than the beginning of your third trimester.

Baby B’s Newborn Photos | Loudoun County Newborn Photographer

This little guy and his sister are 20 months apart and I absolutely love their newborn family photos.  Last year I began offering baby-only mini sessions for the client who wants photos of just their baby.  I always encourage my clients to consider newborn family photos.  This is the only time of life that your teeny tiny baby will fit in your hands.

Having 2 siblings close in age never changes my thoughts on the importance of newborn family photos.  Having 2 under 2 certainly seems like a lot to juggle, especially in the first 14 days.  However, there is nothing sweeter than sibling love.  This may just be the beginning, but that is all the reason to document the beginning of their time together, too.

I have photographed siblings as close in age as 13 months apart and these two are not my first pair with a 20 month age gap!  I’m a professional. Not only am I a spare set of hands during your session (Did you know, I change all of baby’s diapers while they’re here?), but I have a strategy for making this easier for you that I share before your session too.  Additionally, all photos are taken with age appropriate poses and props with the safety of both babies in mind.

I was so thrilled when this family reached out to me for newborn photos.  As it turns out, they live up the hill from me and we had never met before!  It was so great to photograph this sweet little guy and his family.

17 Day Old Girl, Boy Twin Newborn Photos, Loudoun County VA Photographer

I met the sweetest pair of babies a few months ago.  I am so very happy for these mamas and their two babies!  Heather and I met for coffee to plan their session. She told me that she had a vision for a mermaid and a fisherman and in that instant I just knew it would be so fun to create!  Of course we also made sure to take some timeless, neutral photos of the twins as well as parent poses for them to hang at home and gift to family.

It took me a while to get to sharing their photos on the blog, but if you follow me on facebook, you have seen some of these already!

[Jameson] 10 Days New | Loudoun County Posed Newborn Photographer

This session just made my year.  Jameson was such a poseable little ball of cute during his session.  In planning their session, his mama shared that they have picked blues and gray for him.  Dad is a firefighter, and likes football too so we also decided to incorporate that.  You won’t see dad’s firefighter image here though, I want him to be the first to share!  However I have several other images for you to see!

[Patrick] 7 Days New | Sterling VA Newborn Photographer

If there were a contest, this little guy would win for most expressive baby.  He smiled more than any newborn I’ve ever met!  Patrick was such a mellow sweetie and slept for me his entire newborn and family session.  His parents are baseball fans, especially papa, so we incorporated some of the fun props they brought along for their session too.

[Garrett] 10 Day Old Newborn | Alexandria, VA

Meet Garrett, a 10 day old little cutie who drove (ok, maybe his parents drove) all the way from Alexandria for studio photos.  This super champ didn’t even open his eyes a single time during his newborn photo session.

Garrett’s parents chose a Posed Newborn and Family Session which is perfect for documenting your first few weeks as a new family as well as including posed photos of just baby too.

My Best Friend’s Maternity Photos! | Northern VA Maternity Photographer

Some of my closest friends are having their first babies this year.  It has been really fun to watch them on this journey, and celebrate with them.  As the resident “veteran mom” of this circle of friends (it makes me giggle a little to refer to myself that way), it is fun to watch them grow into motherhood in their own respective ways.

I met Millie 10 ish years ago when we both worked for USA TODAY and what was then Gannett (the company has since gone through some structural and name changes since.) She tells a story of this weird, chatty girl that appeared out of nowhere and would just come over, use their department’s DVD burner and talk to her.  We worked in different departments but got to know each other well thanks to my need to copy demo reels and shows we had produced. Over the years, we changed jobs but our friendships grew.  She has been there for me in some of my family’s hardest, and most importantly happiest times and is one of my closest friends.

I was so excited to take Millie’s maternity photos this past spring.  She planned to wear a floral dress she found and loved.  She also planned a wardrobe change into a dress a photographer friend of mine let us borrow.  I have a small collection of gowns, but long sleeve and pink called to her and so we made it happen!

Take a look at her pretty photos! Her sweet new baby boy has since arrived and I can’t wait to share his newborn photos for you.  Spoiler alert: He is the CUTEST baby.
