~ Newborn Photography in Northern Virginia ~
I am a newborn and baby photographer based in Reston, VA. I photograph maternity clients and newborns, babies and young children at my McLean studio using studio lighting. I also love doing outdoor family sessions, my passion is using mostly natural light to photograph families with babies and young kids and expecting parents - and what better place for an outdoor session than Northern Virginia with its great variety of location options?
I customize each session to the likes and priorities of each client and offer an boutique experience. Most of my clients are parents with newborns, babies, toddlers and young kids from Northern Virginia (primarily Arlington, Alexandria, Fairfax, Vienna, Falls Church, Great Falls, Herndon, Reston, Oakton, and Loudoun county) looking for a personalized photo session experience and heirloom prints and wall art. read more.
I am a full-time, fully licensed, insured, registered, professional photography business. I operate out of a dedicated full-service studio (not home studio). I maintain current membership in professional organizations and forums, and follow all up-to-date trends in photography, gear, photoshop and editing. Please do not hesitate to contact me with any photo session and photography related questions.
Availability FYI: Dear Clients, my schedule fills up fast (sometimes for 2-3 months in advance), especially for newborn sessions, which take place within the first 10-14 days of Baby's life to achieve the types of poses/photos you find in my newborn galleries. Please consider booking yours early!

Newborn Portfolio Gallery Guide:
Dear newborn clients, the newborn pictures you see in my galleries are representative of what you can on average expect to walk away with from your newborn session.
Gallery 1, "Clean and Natural Newborn Poses": this gallery showcases photos done with Newborns posed on fabric or fur spread over a large beanbag. These poses focus on Newborn features, expressions, details, yetl offer an opportunity for creativity by way of choosing color and accessories. These images are timeless and elegant!
Gallery 2, "Newborn with Props": this gallery showcases Newborns posed in a variety of props, such as bowls, buckets, crates, on a swing, etc. Props such as buckets and bowls offer a beautiful, "snug" way to pose newborns and add an element of creative, artistic setup to photos. Many of these images are composites (meaning that a parent was holding/spotting the baby) and images were then merged in photoshop.
Gallery 3, "Newborn with Family": this gallery presents images of Newborns with parents. Babies love cuddling with Mom and Dad and the setup with parents and/or siblings offers a great way to portray relations, and love, and emotions of a new family.
Gallery 4, "Newborn Macro and Details": this set of images showcases example of close ups and detailed shots I typically take during a newborn session. These are a timeless way to remember the "little" details, and look great in collages, wall arrangements and cards.
Gallery 5, "Black and White Photos": shows some of the images converted into black and white. I use a special conversion process (not a simple desaturation) to emphasize contrast and texture, and interplay of light and shadow. Black and white newborn photography has a timeless, elegant, artistic feel.
