Schedule Your Newborn Photo Session: NoVa Baby Photography: 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 June 2022!!! Please email Olga at chasingmoments@gmail.com 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 in Northern Virginia, and I have all necessary props, accessories, and gear. I am fully vaccinated against Covid-19, and I have very strict covid-related measures in place, including deep cleanings, scheduling protocols, and limited access to the studio space.

Hello, Friends!

Hope you are all staying warm and cozy this winter! Snow has thrown a wrench in some of my photo studio scheduling this week. I do not mind, as I get to stay home and catch up on some busy work, including blogging and showing some of the beautiful images I have done in the past year.

I know I tend to post newborn sessions, which is natural since this is what I specialize in. What many of you do not know is that I also do a lot of baby milestone photo sessions, especially 6-month photos (sitters), 1-year photos, and holiday and special occasion mini sessions as well. Most commonly, my “baby” clients are 1 year olds and toddlers, and we have SO MUCH FUN photographing them!

I have a lot of parents who come to me with great ideas, or requests (colors, themes, styles). Many bring special outfits (like this little lady’s mom) and stuffed toys or book. I welcome all ideas, and trust me I have seen and done it all (okay, most of it!).

My studio mini session pricing right now is very simple: a low session fee to cover the session, and then it’s pay-per-image! Baby and toddler photos sessions are relatively short because little ones do not really have the patience for anything longer than a 15-20 minute sessions, so the overall commitment is pretty easy. Most importantly, mini sessions are FUN! Yes, FUN! We basically do silly stuff, sing, giggle and play, while taking pictures.

So, if you have a little one and you would like some beautiful updated pictures, please email me! I do birthday sets, cake smashes, Easter and Valentine’s Day photos (THOSE ARE GREAT to print for school’s valentines!), and any possible milestone session you can think of. You can reach me via chasingmoments@gmail.com, fill out the “contact form” on my website or text/call on my cell at 202-251-6368. I usually get back within a few hours.

Also, check out some earlier posts with studio sessions on my blog for some ideas and samples of my work. http://www.chasingmoments.com/blog/category/baby-toddler/

Happy New Year, Everyone! I hope 2022 brings you everything you wish for!

I would like to share amazing news from Chasing Moments Photography! I am introducing SIMPLE PRICING and NEW SESSION OFFERINGS to reflect recent changes in the world around us.

UPDATED PRICE STRUCTURE: I AM SO EXCITED ABOUT THIS! Please proceed to my pricing page to see my new simple approach! I am making this change because of my experience during the past two years. My clients want “easy”, “simple”, and “digital”. No more confusion about which packages to choose, and what comes with your session. My clients are now more savvy about print labs and what they want and how to print. So, no more unnecessary add-ons. It is now SIMPLE, and gives my clients more ordering flexibility.

I am so CONFIDENT in the quality of sessions and images I deliver, I will no longer require any minimum purchase amounts. You can order as many as you wish, or you can order one image, or nothing at all. You will love the images from your session, that I do not need any commitments from my clients. The decision and pricing process is now so easy and simple, I cannot believe I haven’t thought to do it sooner.

NEW SESSION OFFERINGS: I will now offer a limited number of “in-home” on location newborn sessions, in addition to studio newborn sessions. This will reflect the changing needs and preferences of my prospective clients. With the COVID pandemic, more newborn parents prefer to have their newborn sessions done at home. I understand that for many it is a more convenient and comfortable approach and I am here to help.

The photography industry has evolved to offer more versatile props and lighting to make in-home newborn sessions much easier than 10 years ago. In-home sessions will have the same simple and easy price structure, a slightly higher session fee to account for traveling and setup. I will bring the custom studio look to your home. We will still to customize the looks, props, and colors to your liking. You will still get the same beautiful posed and semi-posed newborn pictures and family portraits.

So, if you love my work, and if you or someone you love is expecting in the next 6 months, please email me at chasingmoments@gmail.com to schedule your session.

And, just because I feel like it, I want to give a shout out to one of my biggest inspirations for what I do – Anne Geddes, she is truly the founder of all newborn photography work that exists today.

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 gmail.com, 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 expertise.com 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.

Please email Olga at chasingmoments@gmail.com for more information and to book your session. I strive to provide a clean and safe environment for my clients, therefore I 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. 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, I will work with everybody on a 1:1 basis.

Clean and Protected Environment: The nature of my clientele (baby clients are adamant about keeping their young children healthy) and my appointment routine (only one client per day, nobody else enters the studio) is highly selective. I am confident in my ability to maintain a clean and safe studio environment during all sessions. I clean all surfaces and accessories with approved disinfectants before and after every session.

Vaccination: Your photographer has full vaccination (2 vaccines + booster), and I recommend that all clients with immediate access to the studio have full vaccination.

I want each and every client to know 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. 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”.

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!).
