Unlike traditional studios that are filled with a variety of backdrops, props and setups, my home studio in Leesburg, Virginia allows me to work with minimalist and delicate props to focus on your baby’s beauty and the incredible love that bonds you.

It offers ample amounts of natural light, is equipped with white sheer curtains, as well as light hardwood flooring for a truly relaxed and timeless portrait experience. To compliment the simplicity of the studio, I provide a wardrobe for expecting and new mamas. Clothing is also offered to newborns and babies up to 18 months.

Come make yourself at home away from home!


newborn session

In-home sessions are a great fit for you if you are looking to have the first fleeting moments with your newborn captured in the comfort of your own home. Imagine a first family portrait in your living room, master bedroom, nursery, or even your backyard.

Being able to include
your fur babies make these DC newborn photography sessions a client favorite. Whereas most in-home photographers offer lifestyle photography only, my DC newborn photo sessions include a variety of sweet, womb-like poses and breathtaking details while incorporating a setting that is uniquely yours.

"Let's say the important part up front - Stephanie's work product, turnaround time, and production value is phenomenal. She's personable, honest, warm, and excellent with her clients and subject matters.She makes sure to work with the client to identify what you want, what you expect, and what she offers and then you decide on the relationship from there. That's exactly what you should want - she's not running a fast food restaurant where you look at a menu and say "I want this." The end-product is exactly what you want.I'd recommend Stephanie in a heartbeat."

"From the moment we met it was very apparent Stephanie has a true passion for photography. I was so impressed with her warmth and attention to detail during our sons newborn shoot.I wasn’t sure at first how I felt about an in home session versus a studio. After meeting with Stephanie and hearing her talk about how she likes to capture real life moments in the home....I knew she would be a perfect fit! She certainly did not disappoint. We adore the sweet pictures that she took. I would definitely recommend Stephanie for all your photography needs."

"Stephanie was such a friendly and talented photographer to work with for our newborn shoot. During the shoot she is relaxed and patient, which is nice and accommodating for a mother of 4 who not only has to stop the shoot to nurse, but also has to take time to wrangle the other kiddos throughout the session. She's genuinely excited about what she does, which you can tell not only by her constant smile, but by her incredible work. She is a true artist who took her time to capture not only special moments of the newborn, but the other members of the family as well."

"Stephanie did our newborn photos, and the entire experience was wonderful! From the very beginning Stephanie works with you to understand how to capture your vision. She’s warm, friendly, professional, and you can tell she loves what she does. The pictures she got of our family, our baby, and even our dog are phenomenal, and her turnaround time was so fast. Once your photos are ready you can look through your gallery to choose which ones to buy, but I don’t know how anyone could choose just a few because they’re all so amazing. We’re so glad we found her! so glad we found her!"

"I started with Stephanie more than 2 years ago for my first pregnancy shoot. I knew from that day she was the perfect photographer for our growing family. She put us all at ease and came equipped with props, gowns and a sense of calmness. Her talent is obvious when you see the pictures. She captures our hearts and souls!"
