The sweetest baby smile / Top Washington, D.C. Newborn Photographer

I can’t get over how beautiful this family is! My name is Stephanie, YOUR professional Washington, D.C. newborn photographer. Hello and welcome to my blog! For more information about a photo shoot with me, please inquire here!

Veronica reached out to me in May of this year wondering if I’d be around to photograph her baby girl’s newborn session. It wasn’t the first time working with these lovely people. I got to photograph their first born, Sofia, in their home in Washington, D.C. almost two years ago. I was overjoyed to hear the wonderful news and might have done a little happy dance, too. The family has since moved to Chevy Chase and Sofia has…well…grown a lot! A little shy and curious at first upon my arrival, Sofia has quickly warmed up to me and ended up sharing lots of giggles and sweet moments. See for yourself!

When including siblings, my professional recommendation as your Washington, D.C. newborn photographer is to start with family photos first. I was aware of Sofia’s nap schedule and wanted to make the most of my time with her. A little game of peek-a-boo, tickles, and imitating animal sounds made all the difference in the world. I’m pretty sure I was jumping up and down a gazillion times, too. My clients will tell you that I will go to great length to get and keep your little ones engaged.

This has to be one of my personal favorites. Dax, you are a lucky man!

Can we talk about the headband collection in Ella’s nursery? The choices are endless.

    This is such a sweet session. I love the ones with the sibling, so adorable! Beautiful work as always!

    You definitely go above and beyond to get little ones smiling. Sometimes I think you need a “behind the scenes” photoshoot to show just how much you do.
    Amazing pictures as always!
