Beautiful 1st Year Photos: Best Baby Photography in NoVa

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, 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.
