Affordable family photography in Silver Spring, MD

Affordable family photographer in Silver Spring, MD.  Specializing in newborns, pregnancy, and family photography.

First,  we set up a tentative date (your due date) and I wait for the call.  Within the first 48 hours after the birth, you call, and I come take photos in the hospital.   These are lifestyle type photos of Mom, Dad, baby--whoever you would like to include.  

Unlike newborn photography, hospital photography is not posed and will feature your new relationship with your baby.  The emphasis is placed on family emotions and reactions to your new addition, and capturing moments for you to treasure.  This session is not intended to take the place of a newborn session.  

The NEWBORN session features posed images of the baby bundled in various settings, and some nude shots folded up with hats, headbands, etc.   This type of session can include one or two pictures of mom and dad with the baby, but typically is centered around the baby.


  • The session takes place during daylight hours, within the first 48 hours of life. (The sooner the better!)

  • It can take place at the hospital, birth center or at home and will last approximately 60-90 minutes.

  • Session features your baby and family, unposed, using natural or available light.  

  • Black and white, and color images are included in the package of approx. 25+ images.
