Your Northern VA Baby Photographer Comes To You!

In-home newborn sessions provide a sense of comfort for the baby and the whole family. You are surrounded by all that you know, allowing you to relax. No need to get everyone out the door, possibly even dealing with inclement weather. Your newborn will remain surrounded by the sounds and smells already familiar to him or her, which could greatly contribute to a relaxed and happy mood during the photo shoot. Let me travel to you!

Showcases Your “Masterpieces”

Having spent hours preparing the nursery for your baby’s arrival, parents love to showcase their “masterpiece” in the newborn session. I primarily photograph newborns in the nursery, living room, and master bedroom. A consultation prior to your photo shoot helps me learn about the color scheme in your home, which allows me to choose the best props and accessories for your session.

Easier To Entertain Siblings And Include Family Pets

Sometimes, the idea of planning a studio photoshoot around everyone’s schedule can be stressful. The thought of having to entertain older siblings during a photo shoot can be even more daunting. With an in-home newborn session in Northern VA and Washington, D.C., you can take those stressors away. Since you are in your own home, your kids have access to all their belongings right at their fingertips. Maybe the pooch or kitty will even make a special appearance for an adorable photo opportunity.
