Best DC Area Photographers For Newborns and Babies

It always makes my heart so happy when clients tell their friends and family they’re grateful to work with “one of the best DC area photographers for newborns and babies.”

While I’ve worked so hard over the years to ensure the absolute best care and experience for each and every one of them to earn the title, I love that they hype me up so much. Helping them celebrate such special memories as they grow their families is so rewarding.

Best DC Area Photographers For Newborns and Babies | Sofia’s Session

I loved finally getting to meet sweet Sofia, being her birth photographer. It was such a sweet reunion for her newborn session in our Northern Virginia studio. She has been such a dream to work with and was the snooziest little girl during her session. She loved being swaddled and gave us one of the sweetest yawns I think I’ve ever seen.

Sofia’s precious Mama and Daddy have waited so long for this moment of getting to cherish her little life. Celebrating with them again during her newborn session was an extra special moment. Baby Sofia is the result of many years of waiting and is a miracle IVF baby.

Waiting for Baby

Often, it’s only once you’re ready to become part of the parent club that you start to consider just how much hope and waiting can accompany this season. Some families are blessed with their dreams of becoming parents coming to fruition quickly.

Sometimes, it takes a bit more faith, months or even years of waiting, and maybe a few more helping hands than you initially imagined.

Regardless of where you are in your journey, we are always happy to share in your joy or hold your hand from afar while we wait for the day we will celebrate with you.

Kind Words From Mama

“We absolutely loved working with Emily for our birth and newborn photos! From the first time we chatted on the phone, I knew we’d be a great match. Emily is so friendly, competent, and honestly goes beyond the photographer role – during our birth experience and newborn shoot, she was right there to lend a hand and anticipate our needs before we could even ask for help.

She’s truly a baby whisperer! She even called the hospital room service line to order us a meal after delivery so my husband could continue bonding with our baby while I was tended to by the medical team. I’m so glad we found Emily, who has now become a friend to our family, to capture some of the most precious moments of our lives, and we can’t wait for her to continue documenting our family as it grows!” -Kate
