Second Ave Photography LLC » Internationally published Northern Virginia photographer specializing in natural newborn, children + family, and breastfeeding portraits.

After starting my own family in 2010, I realized how quickly the newborn stage of life passes by. Before you know it, middle of the night feedings turn into learning how to walk to field trips at school.

When you look back on your own childhood photos, which are your favorites? If they are the ones where you are snuggled into your mom or dad’s lap reading a book, or playing with your favorite toy, lifestyle photography is the perfect choice for your baby’s first photo session.

It’s about telling the story of your new family. All of the details in the nursery you’ve worked so hard on; the details of life with your incredible baby.

You will appreciate having this time documented in a way that you can enjoy with your baby as they grow. The lifestyle newborn photography experience I provide is about preserving the memories from this time in your baby’s life. The chair you fed her in every night. The couch where he slept on your shoulder all day. Their nursery theme, their fully stocked bookshelf and perfectly arranged room, and the way they stretch when you lay them down.

By coming to your home, you can relax, letting your amazing baby be our focus in the warm environment of your home. There will be plenty of time for snuggles, feedings, and that extra cup of coffee. I always invite siblings (and pets, often your first baby!) to participate. This is such a magical time in your lives, and I’m thrilled that you are considering me to be part of it.

I recommend planning your newborn session about 3-4 months prior to your due date in order to ensure availability.

But really. Why should you hire me?

This is my full time job. I accept a limited number of bookings each month so you will have my full attention.

Choose the package that best fits your needs and budget. Don’t pay for things you don’t love; get more of what you do.

I am licensed, insured, and experienced.

What if you don’t want me to come to your home?

If the weather allows, I can help you choose a beautiful location outside that perfectly reflects your taste and style. Or, perhaps consider a Fresh 48 session at the hospital.
