This family came down from Washington DC for their baby’s newborn photos.  A few adorable images below.  I got to photograph her mom’s maternity, and now she arrived for her first photo shoot!  It was a pleasure to serve this family again and to meet their sweet, tiny new addition. Such an adorable baby girl, and full of character already….if you think it was easy to pose her into any of the set ups, think again :)….  She brought her big sister with her, and we got to capture the bond between two of them as well, and got many beautiful pictures for mom and dad with both their babies.

My studio is located in Ashburn VA, I have clients come down from all over Northern VA, Washington DC and Maryland. If you have any questions about newborn or maternity photography, please contact me and I would be glad to answer all of them.  I also offer on location, lifestyle newborn photography for those desiring at home session.

Lifestyle newborn session is a beautiful way to have your baby photographed in its natural environment and in a relaxed atmosphere.  If you think the posed studio session is not for you, this is a great alternative. My most important aim during the session is capturing the relationship between the baby and its parents and siblings.  The excitement, love and happiness that the new baby brings into the family is beyond words and I am so happy when I am invited to capture it.

This baby girl was about one month old at the time of the session.  And she did great! A little older then my usual newborn.  One of the advantage of an at-home session is that it can be taken at any age.  I love the light colors in the images, mom did such a great job with styling everybody’s clothing for the occasion.  The baby is so tiny the light colors  make everything light and airy, drawing focus to the infant alone.  I love how this session turned out – few of my favorites below!

I offer lifestyle newborn photography throughout Northern VA or Washington DC, please contact me for more informations.  I would love to be your family’s photographer.

I have been planing to write about photography I provide to my little newborn clients and their families.  I do offer both creative studio session and on-location lifestyle photography session throughout Northern Virginia and Washington DC.  In this post I want to address studio sessions in particular.  I am planing on writing a separate blog post about lifestyle baby session – coming up soon :).

It is important for clients to have good idea what they can expect when hiring a newborn photographer.  Blog is an excellent resource for prospective clients as it goes beyond the portfolio to show examples of actual photo-shoots.  There is many photographers on the market each offering a different artistic style and different products.  As you may know, I do have a new website, and I just published a post on the subject.  I encourage you to go over and read through what you can expect during the session and and most importantly see an acutal gallery example, by  clicking here.

A few pics from the session. If you are expecting baby and would like more information please contact me, and I would be glad answer any of your questions.

This was such a fun session. I haven’t done sessions at the Disney Boardwalk in a while – most of my clients preferred the outdoor park/lake/grass sessions, which I love, don’t get me wrong. But when I got an inquiry from a mom to be flying from VA down to Florida for a weekend asking me to photograph her and her husband in a ‘fun’ location, I was thrilled! Mommy- to- be seemed a lot of fun, she wanted colors, sun and had very specific session in mind. I think it turned out great!!! We have a lot of fun and colorful locations, at the end – we live in the fun city!

This couple loves to fly – they are both pilots! They travel a lot for leisure as well. Their newborn baby is up for a huge adventure!

I am a proud owner of Canon 5D III !!!! It arrived today and I am so excited to put it to use.

My existing 5DII will become predominantly my back up camera. Being a newborn photographer, having a back up gives me much relief, knowing how time sensitive newborn photography is.

It will also be nice not having to change lenses during a session.   I could have 50mm on Mark III and a macro lens on Mark II during a newborn session. That’s goanna be so sweet.

During an outdoor photo-shoot it will be great to have two cameras on me and to be able to change quickly between portrait lens and a wide-angle lens. Babies change their expressions so quickly; two-camera combo will be helpful.

Can’t wait to test it out on my upcoming newborn session.

xoxo Sylvia
