We love being Charlottesville newborn photographers and that is why we are here to give some tips on your upcoming newborn session!   The best time for us to capture your new baby is between 5 to 10 days old.  We always ask parents to feed the new baby right before you leave your house to head to the studio.  This way by the time you arrive at our Charlottesville photography studio, their bellies will be full and they most likely will be sleepy!

By far the cutest outfit ever!  Don’t be afraid to bring a few different outfit changes for your baby and for yourself!  It’s always nice to have options!

We have multiple newborn stretch wraps, baby blankets and different baskets for your newborn to look extra cute! In addition, feel free to bring whatever special items from home that you want included in a few of your baby photographs. This could be a monogramed blanket, a stuffed animal that goes with your nursery theme, or personalized baby blocks with their birthday!

We love when moms bring props for their newborn sessions.  The little suitcase and teddybear were so adorable.

We just loved the moment Mason and Collin held baby Elyse for the first time.  They were so gentle with her and Collin even went in for a little kiss on the forehead!

We also couldn’t get enough of how cute baby Elysse’s crown and tutu were!

It’s so heartwarming watching these brand new babies come into the studio and witnessing the special bond with their parents.  That is why we love being Charlottesville newborn photographers!

Sometimes it takes awhile for a baby to fall back to sleep once awaken and that is okay!  Just look at baby Penny so wide awake and alert! That’s why we allow up to 3 hours for each newborn session, so there is time to nurse, change and rock the little one back to sleep.

It was such treat to be a part of Courtney & Craig’s wedding in Washington, DC at the Newseum (a museum celebrating News)! They’re not only such a sweet couple, but they also love to ski (we hit it off quickly over our shared love of skiing). Courtney and Craig met while on a ski trip to Snowshoe Mountain, West Virginia with co-workers. They both worked at the same company but had never actually spoken before fate brought them together. During their first ski run down the mountain, they happened to lose the rest of their group, but lucky for them they hit it off and a beautiful romance started! Four years later, Craig proposed to Courtney while on a romantic ski trip to Salt Lake City, Utah. It couldn’t have been more perfect! Much like their proposal, their wedding was amazing! Courtney and Craig started with a beautiful wedding ceremony at the Holy Trinity Catholic Church in Georgetown. Courtney’s father surprised Courtney with a Rolls Royce which transported them to the church.  It was quite the grand entrance!  Courtney and Craig then had a chance to spend quality time together in the vintage Rolls Royce, on their ride to the Newseum.  The Newseum was the perfect venue, with amazing views of multiple great D.C. Monuments including the Capitol Building & Washington Monument. We loved having the opportunity to capture their day as Washington D.C. wedding photographers and wish Courtney & Craig all the best in life & marriage!

Courtney and her bridesmaids started off the day getting ready at the Park Hyatt Hotel in Washginton D.C.  We thought it was so special that she had her mother included in her wedding party as a Matron of Honor!
