Maternity and Newborn Photography

Maternity creates a bond for a lifetime. Nine months can pass by in a blink of an eye. Too soon, your little one will be celebrating their first birthday. Don’t miss the opportunity to photograph your journey— from pregnancy to the cake smash. With quality maternity and newborn photography, you can celebrate and savor the unparalleled excitement forever. I specialize in documentary-style newborn photography in Northern VA, Maryland and the District.

This Moment is the Beginning of Their Story

The one thing I can guarantee when adding a baby into the fold of your family is that one year later, you will wonder how your sweet little one is turning one. Bringing a new life into your family, whether through adoption or birth, is the biggest change that will be part of your family story. But, it is also the greatest joy you will ever experience. Lifestyle newborn photography and maternity photography can capture the jubilation of this singular moment for a lifetime. I provide luxury maternity sessions and newborn photography with heirloom quality photo albums, in addition to digital prints, so you can share your baby’s story with family and friends. 

A Photographer for Inclusivity & Celebrating Diversity

Families are diverse and distinct with individual stories and strengths. I am a newborn photographer specializing in telling the stories of families formed in various ways and of all different backgrounds. 


As a mother, I understand that creating life is empowering and also a vulnerable experience. Pregnancy is a thrilling and overwhelming time, so it’s important to work with an experienced maternity photographer. After all, your pregnancy creates an eternal bond with your little one, starting with 9 months that can only be shared between the two of you. I start all sessions by establishing a trusting, comfortable environment in order to catch your authentic spirit. You will have digital photos and heirloom quality photo albums to enjoy and share. 


Trust me when I say that the newborn stage is gone in a blink of an eye. Celebrate this new addition to your family and capture this evanescent moment in all your lives with a newborn photographer who has personal and professional experience with the intricacies of working with newborns. Let’s document this moment.


Family photography sessions start at $999 for a session lasting 1.5 hours. Every newborn session includes an album to hold and treasure! You also have the opportunity to purchase framed prints, wall art, canvases, prints, and other gifts.
