Studio Maternity Photography Session in Fairfax, VA.

I truly have the most beautiful and sweet clients! This couple came to my studio in Herndon VA, looking for a simple studio maternity session. They wanted it to immortalize the precious moments of pregnancy in an intimate way. I loved doing their Studio Maternity Photography!

Here are some images we capture at their studio maternity session.

Maternity photography is not just about taking pictures. it’s about honoring the beauty of pregnancy, celebrating the miracle of new life, and creating lasting memories that will be treasured for generations to come. By capturing these precious moments, we pay homage to the incredible journey of motherhood and the profound love that binds families together.

Throughout the session, we shared stories, laughter, and heartfelt moments that made the experience truly special. Together, we explored various poses and settings, each one capturing the glow of the mother and the excitement of their little one arrival in few moths. I can’t wait to meet him soon!

    Northern Virginia at home newborn session

    Welcoming a newborn into your family is a special  occasion. With so much to cherish, it’s natural to want to capture every moment. One way to do that is with a newborn in-home photography session. Not only is this a convenient option for new parents, but it also allows for a comfortable and personalized setting to capture beautiful memories. These sessions offer an intimate and relaxed environment for parents and newborn to capture those precious first moments together. I offer in home sessions in Northern Virginia – Fairfax County, Loudoun County, Alexandria, Arlington and surrounding towns.

    Another benefit of an in-home session is that it allows for a variety of settings and backdrops. For example, photos can be taken in the baby’s nursery, living room, or even outside in the backyard. These different settings can provide unique and personal memories for the family to cherish.

    WHAT TO EXPECT:

    We usually schedule the session about 10 days after your due date and adjust it if baby comes earlier or later than expected. Most all my newborn sessions take place when the baby is anywhere from 5-15 days old. This is important because I like to shoot when the baby is still very sleepy and small. You’ll want to remember your little one and every little detail. Trust me.

    WHAT TO WEAR FOR YOUR IN HOME NEWBORN SESSION:

    Simple is best. Comfort is key. Keep colors neutral but don’t be afraid to add a little bit of color! Whites, creams, grey, and subdued colors always photograph the best. Try to avoid bright and bold colors, super dark colors like black and navy blue and big patterns and shirts with large logos on them because all that can take away from the overall feel and look of your images. Same rules apply to siblings. Try to avoid clothing with characters, sequins and neons. No shoes are best at home sessions.

    HOW TO PREPARE FOR YOUR IN HOME SESSION:

    Before our session, I will ask what areas of your house you would like the session to take place in. I like to have clients pick one or two rooms that have the best natural light. No need to clean at all! However, if you can, try and declutter items on counters/floors in the spaces you’d like me to photograph in. Less is more when it comes to these type sessions. Also, keep in mind your bedding. There are some really wonderful colors and fun patterns. However, if you have a white sheet/blanket/comforter definitely bust that out and lay it on top. The reason being, bright and bold colors will cast shadows and colors on skin, leaving a tint of whatever color the blanket is. So if you can, keep it simple and plain. Whites and creams are always ideal to ensure aesthetically pleasing images to the eye. As far as props, simple blankets and wraps in neutral colors can provide a cozy and timeless look. A few select items such as a special stuffed animal or a sentimental blanket can also add a personal touch to the photos.

    If you have older kiddos, let me know before we schedule a time. We want to avoid during the session at nap time.

    FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:

    • What happens if the baby is fussy?
      We can take breaks at any time. It’s totally normal. Usually a nice swaddle and feeding does the trick.
    • How long does a typical session last?
      – Most sessions last around 1-1.5 hrs. I like to leave extra time for feedings, diaper changes and fussy babies.
    • Do you use or bring props?
      – I bring a couple props and wraps but we mostly use what you already have  at your home. 
    • We are so awkward in front of the camera. Will you help pose us?
      – Yes of course! I totally understand being awkward, because I am too! I will definitely help guide you into a pose and then ask you to engage with your family.

    Newborn in-home photography session is a wonderful way to capture those precious first moments with your little one. With minimal props and the comfort of your own home, it’s a convenient and relaxed option for new parents. So, take advantage of this opportunity to create beautiful memories that you will cherish for years to come.

      Fairfax County Cake Smash Photography session

      We had so much fun in this 1 year cake smash photography session! Mom requested white and blue set for the cake smash and some grey tones + Easter colors for the second backdrop. Mom brought a delicious vanilla cake with blue frosting and baby loved it.

      Your child’s first year is a special milestone, and what better way to celebrate than with a cake smash session in our studio in Fairfax County. A 1 year photography session is a fun and unique way to capture your child’s personality and excitement as they explore the cake and make a mess! At the beginning of the session we do casual portraits and finish with a cake smash if you like. We can also do some family portraits in between.

      Our studio is located in Herndon, in Fairfax County VA. It offers a comfortable and safe environment. We provide a variety of cake smashes themes, backdrops, and props to make the sessions unique and personalized as possible. We encourage parents to bring a cute outfits and child favorite accessories or toys to add personal touch to their portraits. We also offer cute outfits from our client’s closet if you rather use ours 😉

      Cake smash fun!

      Cake smash sessions are not only fun for your child, but they also make great memories and keepsakes. You can use the images to create beautiful wall art, thank you cards, albums and prints to share with family and friends.
