Maternity/Newborn Photographer recommendations?

Does anyone have any photographer recommendations for maternity and/or newborn photos in the Alexandria or Arlington VA area?

Re: Maternity/Newborn Photographer recommendations?

  • Hello, I am looking to build my photography portfolio. I am a wife and mother of 2, working in the US Navy and realized that my day job as a lawyer was not complete until I picked up a camera. Now, I can't put it down and want to shoot as much as I possibly can. I am also taking a photoshop class using Adobe CS5. I love photographing children and family portraits using natural light. At this time, I am not charging for the photo sessions. If you are interested in doing a free photoshoot and assist me in building my portfolio, please drop me a line at [email protected]. As mentioned above, I am always interested in shooting almost anything. I also do have a sample of my work that can be shown upon request. 
  • I will be following this post as we're looking as well!


  • One of my best friends from college does newborn photos. I highly recommend her.

  • Here's the spreadsheet of DC Nestie/Bumpie photog recommendations - specifically for family and baby photos.




    Wife, Musician, Fed, WW-er, and Mom of three little kids - not necessarily in that order.
  • I used artslvr's spreadsheet.  It seems the big question is whether they include the images or not and of course looking at their style of photography.
  • Brook15, YGPM.
  • Based on the recommendation of another Bumpie I hired Love, Magic & Mudpies Photography to do my daughter's photos.  They turned out really, really great!!


  • Hi there.  I do maternity and child portraits, based in Arlington, but I often travel to Alexandria and other DC areas as well.  I am on the spreadsheet.  My rate is $175 for a full session and you have full digital access to all of your images.  My website link is in my signature, and you can visit my FB page as well!  I have loads of great references (including Bumpies/Nesties!). Good luck in your search! :)
