Northern Virginia Maternity Photographer

This time is so special, mama; full of awe, wonder and oh, so many emotions – I want to help you capture it forever. Together, let’s create beautiful and timeless images for you to reflect on your pregnancy journey. I specialize in soft and feminine maternity photos for every mom-to-be, in my natural-light indoor studio year round, or outdoors from spring through fall.

Whether your vision is a garden filled with blooms, a regal, iconic DC location with white columns and marble, or a field full of tall golden grasses and a beautiful sunset, we will personalize your session to be everything you have imagined.  Or come to my cozy studio in Old Town Alexandria, built in 1785, with huge windows to bathe you in gorgeous natural light for the most stunning photos.

I love to use whites and neutral colors to style your session for gorgeous, classic images. Browse my client wardrobe, full of flowy, soft, stunning gowns to make choosing an outfit a breeze.  If  you prefer to wear something new, I’ll provide tips on what styles photograph best for new moms, where to shop and even some links to pieces that are available to purchase at some of my favorite online stores.

“If you’re looking for a personal yet professional photographer in the DMV area look no further. Sarah was incredible to work with. I had my newborn session with Sarah and they came out better than I believed they could. After having a rough birth that led to a C section I didn’t feel like I looked my best but the photos Sarah took made me feel great. I will forever cherish the pictures and will be happy to go back to Sarah for the next newborn session. Thank you for your incredible work. Don’t look any further, book Sarah while you can!”

Frequently Asked Questions

Q. When should I book a maternity session?

 The best time to shoot is generally at 30-36 weeks (7-8 months), so be sure to book in advance as I only have a limited number of maternity sessions each month.

Q. What should I wear?

 I have several dresses in my studio wardrobe that you are welcome to wear. I am also happy to help you choose a dress or send you ideas and links.

Q. How long does a maternity session take?

 The session will be between 1-1.5 hours. I will walk you through each step from poses, to wardrobe changes. My sessions are very relaxed. I want you to be comfortable and in your element. We won’t be taking photos the entire time, but here and there as we chat and get to know each other.

Q. Where does the session take place?

 The session can take place in my studio in Old Town Alexandria at 113 S. Saint Asaph Street, or various outdoor locations around Northern Virginia and the DC area. I can provide several ideas for you to choose from.
