Newborn Photographer in DC, Northern Virginia, and Maryland

Newborn Sessions

The first couple of weeks of life are the most miraculous and fleeting. My goal as a newborn photographer in the DC area is to ensure the memories of your newborn baby’s precious first days are captured for a lifetime.

Ideally, newborn photography sessions take place when the baby is between 5-21 days old. Babies change SO quickly in those first few weeks and life can be SO exhausting with a newborn at home. As a mom of two, I know how hard it can be to remember to appreciate all those little moments. My job is to capture those fleeting newborn details so you’ll never forget.

Newborn photography sessions take place in your home, which I love 🙂 It’s the place where you and your family create memories every single day. Using your home as our backdrop – I’ll help freeze time for you in the most beautiful of ways.

One of the many things I love about being a newborn photographer in the DC area, is capturing the emotional connections between you and your baby + family. Newborn sessions include all members of your family, including parents, siblings and grandparents. And yes! We can, of course, do some shots with the family pet! Nothing is better than a photo of a newborn and their dog, right?

I offer a limited number of Fresh 48 sessions per year. Contact me if you have any questions or want to chat about a photography session with your newborn baby.

I love connecting with people, so feel free to reach out!

“Tonya made the experience so enjoyable and convenient. She was amazing with our 2-year-old and so patient with our infant who had multiple accidents during the shoot! She is very talented and dedicated to capturing these memories for our family. Thank you Tonya!” – Katie C. 

“Tonya was wonderful!! She was everything other reviewers said. She came with lots of props and really spent her time getting our baby in different positions and ensuring she was sleepy. We haven’t seen the pictures yet but spending 5 hours with our baby I’m sure they will be beautiful.” – Jamie C.
