NEWBORN & BABY Photo session Availability FYI: Dear Clients, my studio schedule fills up fast, especially for newborn sessions, which take place within the first 10-14 days of Baby’s life to achieve the types of poses/photos in my newborn galleries.  I am now booking newborn sessions with due dates into winter of 2021-2022!!! Please email Olga at for details, availability and to book. See the pricing page for newborn photography session information and details. I do all newborn baby sessions at my Reston / Herndon studio, and I have all necessary props, accessories, and gear. I have received the COVID vaccine, and I have very strict covid-related measures in place, including deep cleanings, scheduling protocols, and limited access to the studio space.

Hello Friends! I am dying to share this newborn session with you,  oh goodness, it is one of my favorites from the past year – just look at these kids! This is one of my past clients, and this is their 3rd newborn baby girl! I am so happy to be doing yet another newborn session for them, and I just love how the photos turned out. What a beautiful, amazing family, and these three little girls are just priceless. The sisters are so good with their little one, and the photo gallery turned out just perfect, and to match the past sessions and the art the family have in their home! Mom had a beautiful vision of colors, props, and accessories to match their other pictures, and we totally pulled it off. And, yes, of course I got pooped on (business as usual)! (Check my website for more information on Newborn and Sibling Photography in Herndon)

Hope you’ll enjoy the photos, and as always please feel free to reach out with any questions or session requests, I do newborn and baby/sibling sessions at the studio, and I am currently planning outdoor family mini sessions for the fall. Feel free to email at chasingmoments at, call at 202-251-6368, and please FOLLOW THE LINK TO SEE ALL PHOTOS for Newborn and Sibling Photography in NoVa / Reston / Herndon / Fairfax Co

Oh and good news, just recently learned that Chasing Moments Photography has been added to the Washignton DC metro area listings as a newborn photographer with A+ reputation. Yay!

Finding a moment amidst all the daily “busy” to post one of my recent newborn shots. Occasionally, I get to do super fun stuff – so here’s a “shelf” request by one of my old clients. OMG, I can’t believe it – but this is their FOURTH newborn I’ve photographed… thank you all so very much, dear clients and friends, for sticking with me through the years and all your babies! The absolute best part of what I do is watching families grow and become complete!

A candid, somewhat personal post bidding farewell to 2020. Read more here. It’s a little bit of everything, and you get to meet my new puppy (and one of my shaggy mask-wearing kiddos). Hope it makes sense, and would love to hear back from you, and see you at the studio for your session!

Dear Friends,

Happy New Year! May 2021 be a whole lot happier, brighter and joyful than 2020!

With the pandemic going on, I did not blog in 2020 at all for various reasons and have kept my social media profile very low as well. I am hoping this will change, some of the though process behind the “online presence downtime” as well as a few Chasing Moments favorites coming up in the blog post or two to follow.

In the meantime, hope you and your loved ones are all staying safe, sane and healthy! Hope this recent (one of my last studio mini sessions of 2020) photo session will bring a smile to your face.


Dear Friends, Clients and Prospective Clients

Scheduling : At this time, Chasing Moments newborn and baby photography studio remains fully operational and open to appointments on a 1:1 basis, as always. Please email Olga at for more information and to book your session. I am committed to provide a clean and safe environment for my clients, and have extensive cleanliness procedures in  place to help protect everybody coming in for their photo session.

Scheduling Flexibility: I understand that at this time of uncertainty, many of my clients’ schedules are changing fast, so please be assured I will work with you to make sure we can fit you in at the time that works best for you. I am currently extending my weekend and afternoon hours as well. Please email to inquire for details, and I will work with everybody on a 1:1 basis.

Clean and Protected Environment: Given the highly selective nature of my clientele (newborn clients or client with very young children who are adamant about keeping their young babies and children healthy) and my appointment routine (only one client per day, nobody else enters the studio), I am confident in my ability to maintain a clean and safe studio environment during all sessions. At this time, I am limiting new client intake to newborn and young baby clients only, and implementing additional cleaning procedures. All surfaces and accessories will be thoroughly cleaned with approved disinfectants before and after every session , and hand sanitizers and cleaning supplies are widely available during your session (like always).

I want each and every client to be assured that the studio has been thoroughly cleaned before their session, theirs is the only session of the day, they are my only studio visitors of the day, and their session will take place in a controlled, clean and safe environment.

There is no public access to my studio, and I am the only one with daily access privileges. This guarantees that I maintain full control over maintaining cleanliness. Please do not hesitate to email me with any questions or concerns.

Thought I’d share one of my last sessions of 2019. This beautiful baby girl came to my studio with her parents and big brothers in December, and she was the sweetest little lady. We focused on a couple of timeless and clean looks, and then added a few flowery accessories with “her” special colors in as well, and between those shots as well as pictures of Baby with Mom, Dad, and her brothers, we did a fantastic job. CLICK here to view more images from the session.

Dear Friends,  Happy New Year! Hope 2020 brings you and your loved ones everything you wish for!

As my studio is gearing up for another exciting year of newborn and baby photo sessions, thought I’d share some of my favorite images from 2019 newborn sessions. I am, as always, forever grateful to have met each and every single one of my little clients and their families. Thank you all, for choosing me as your newborn photographer! It is a true honor and privilege to know that you trust me with to work with your sweet babies. I hope these images will forever bring a smile to your face as you look back at “when they were little”.

Much love! Enjoy looking at all my favorite 2019 baby photos via this link.

I adore my returning clients. This beautiful family returned for their 3rd newborn session, and I believe I also got to see them for their maternity sessions and studio mini sessions. Now photographing 3 little ones, including a toddler and a newborn, means a lot of silly faces, toddler songs and some bribing. We got many beautiful family and sibling shots, and I am just so happy to see this family growing and doing so well, and I am even more honored and happy they return to me for their newborn sessions. Thank you, C. family!

Follow this link to see some of my favorites from the session, and I am not even including family shots in the blog post (which you just have to trust me were amazing!).
