Northern Virginia Newborn Photographer

There are big moments in your life that deserve professional photography and having a baby is definitely one of them! I can't tell you how often I hear from clients that they are so glad they had a session because that tiny baby grew so quickly.

In fact, they are shocked at how different their baby looks just 6 weeks after they are born. As a Northern Virginia newborn photographer it's my job to capture all those tiny features so you never forget how small they once were.


When you hire me as your newborn photographer you get someone who has been there done that twice and is considering doing it a third time, lol!

I know how excited you are as you approach your due date and how overwhelmed yet completely blessed you will feel during those first weeks as a new parent.

So my job is to prepare you ahead of time as much as possible and reassure you on the day of our session that you guys are doing everything right.


From the moment you hire me, we will start prepping for your session. This includes tips and advice on what to wear from me and access to my online stylist to help you coordinate the entire family.

I'll be sending you my Dream Newborn Shoot Planner so you know exactly what to expect on the day of your session. Once that day comes I'll walk you through our session and give you plenty of direction on what to do, it's easy I promise!


After your session, I'll get to work editing your gorgeous photos and then once they are ready we will set a date for your at home reveal! I know traveling and schedules can be tough so you get to see your photos from the comfort of your own couch.

You can look through the photos together decide on your favorites and pick the package that works best for you! As your Northern Virginia newborn photographer, I want you to have beautiful images to display in your home along with digital files to share with family and friends on social media!

Client Note

Hannah, Andrew & Charlie

"I was about halfway through my pregnancy when I booked Melissa for our newborn photos after being drawn to her beautiful, at-home newborn sessions.

When the day finally came to be photographed with our new baby boy, I was sleep deprived and a bit nervous about how the session would go with an eight-day-old. As soon as she arrived at our home, Melissa put my husband and me at ease. She had a calming presence and made the whole experience enjoyable for my family.

Now that our son is almost 3 months old, we are so happy to look back at our photos which perfectly capture those fleeting early days with a new baby. I highly recommend working with Melissa for your newborn photos!!"
