Newborn
Newborn

Newborns are best photographed during the first 10 days of life to capture the sleepy stage. Be sure to schedule these sessions well in advance as I only book a limited amount of newborns per week to allow for flexibility with your due date. You'll have full access to an array of beautiful props, blankets and accessories to customize your newborns session. Upon booking, we'll pencil in your newborns due date and schedule your session upon their arrival.

Newborn Sessions take place either at your home or my studio in Fairfax, VA. You'll have full access to an array of beautiful props, blankets and accessories to customize your newborns session. More information about newborn shoots can be found here.

  • Portraits of you and your newborn
  • 2-3 hour session
  • 50+ fully edited images for viewing at your review session

6 Month
6 Month

These sessions take place at 6-8 months, when your baby is able to sit up unassisted. At this stage your baby will be smiling, grabbing their toes, and showing off their sweet personality.

Your baby can be photographed on location or at my home studio. Both options are great and depend on the season/weather but also what look you're going for. Outdoor shoots tend to be more candid and varied, while indoor shoots tend to be more formal/planned with backdrops and props.

  • Studio or Outdoors (outdoors April through October only)
  • 45-60 minute session (2-3 setups/outfits)
  • 50+ fully edited images for viewing at your ordering appointment
  • The focus of this session is on the one child, but you may include 2-3 sibling/family portraits

Family
Family

When's the last time you updated your family portrait? Often the answer I get goes something like this... 'My kids hate dressing up and never smile for me so I just don't bother'. This makes me so sad! Don't miss out on documenting your little ones because you view the process as stressful, it doesn't have to be! Kids love to laugh. and PLAY and that's what we do at your portrait session. Every child's personality is different and I can cater to them as needed. In my experience, I've found that you can't just TELL someone to smile. It needs to come naturally and you do that by having a little fun ;) Do your kids love dinosaurs? Let's rawr! Do they love to run? Let's race!

  • Immediate families, up to 5 people
  • Family sessions are only available on location/outdoors (not in studio)
  • 1 hour session
  • 50+ fully edited images for viewing at your image review session
  • May include any combination of portraits you would like: whole group, individuals, parents, kids, etc
  • I'll help you brainstorm a location that works for you and fits your families style
