Second Ave Photography is an award winning Northern Virginia maternity photographer.

Pregnancy is a one-of-a-kind journey. Over 40 weeks your body expands and morphs in the most spectacular way, preparing itself to deliver a tiny human into this world. Though parts of pregnancy might not be glamorous (hello, swollen feet and 3 a.m. bathroom runs!), it’s an undeniably magical time. I would love to capture your glow as your Northern Virginia maternity photographer and because this chapter only comes around once in your baby’s lifetime.

Blaire is an award-winning Northern Virginia maternity photographer.
Based out of Loudoun County and serving the entire Washington DC-metro area.

Selected as one of the best Washington DC maternity photographers by!

Award winning lifestyle Washington DC maternity photographer for young-at-heart families who embrace the beautiful chaos of raising babies.

Though the months feel long, the time you are pregnant is truly short, and is filled with excitement and anticipation. The best maternity photography captures the glow, the strength, and the essence of expectant motherhood. They serve as a love letter to your future child.

So when is the best time during pregnancy for maternity photos? Schedule your maternity photography session around weeks 28-32. The first trimester you may barely be showing at all, which can limit the types of maternity photos possible. The third trimester brings maximum belly size, but some women find it harder to move comfortably or stand for long periods of time. During the second trimester you’ll have an obvious pregnant belly while still feeling your best. Maternity photography done during this ‘golden period’ of months seven through eight will capture your gorgeous pregnancy glow at its peak. I’d love to be your Washington DC maternity photographer but please book once you know your due date so you can secure a spot in my schedule.

Creative retainers are due with contract to book your session and cover everything that happens on my end before, during, and after your session.

You don’t pay for anything else until you’ve seen it and LOVE it. On average, you will see 1-2 photos per minute of shooting. Ordering is done conveniently via private online gallery from wherever you are most comfortable.

Digital files are available in sets of 8, 15, or all so you can customize to what works best for you. Each collection also includes a product credit so your beautiful photos don’t just sit on your hard drive. I know how busy we get as parents and I am here to make this as easy as possible for you to enjoy your images.

Need more options? I get that.

First, I offer a complimentary maternity mini session when you book your newborn session.

Or, if you know you’ll want to document your new family for the first year, you may want to consider a First Year membership. This consists of 4 sessions: maternity, 4 months, 8 months, and 12 months. Each includes digital files and at the end you’ll also receive a beautifully designed heirloom photo album.

All of my clients receive a copy of my exclusive What To Wear guide, and I can also provide you a list of fabulous hair and makeup artists. My goal is to help you look and feel your very best so you are comfortable and able to enjoy yourself during our photo session.
