Newborn with big sister and parents | Washington DC newborn photographer

Although every one of my newborn sessions is special, nothing makes my heart sing more than when my newborn clients return to me to photograph their second, third, or fourth child!  I truly view it as such an honor, and I just *love* seeing “my babies” all grown up and embracing their new roles as big sisters and big brothers.  Now that I have been in business for 10 years, I have had the wonderfully good fortune of photographing so many repeat clients in the past several years, including the lovely family featured here!  As you can see from the images below, this beautiful big sister just adores her little brother, and is so incredibly sweet with him. (Be sure to scroll through the images to the end, where you can find a photo of big sister as a newborn.)

Another aspect that I loved about this session for my returning clients was that, at mom and dad’s request, we incorporated some elements that were similar to those we used in their daughter’s newborn session.  For example, we used a lot of neutral tones, and we included various star-themed images.  (This little guy’s nursery has a moon and stars theme so, naturally, I had to photograph him in a moon prop as well. :))  We even captured some photos of the two siblings in the same cozy angora outfit!

It was such a delight for me to see this sweet family again, and I wish their growing family every happiness!

    Potomac, MD newborn photography | Baby girl and “big” brother portraits

    Welcoming a new baby into the world is one of the most joyful and special occasions in life.  It is also a bit of a whirlwind, and that new baby stage passes by in the blink of an eye.  But professional newborn photography can help families capture and preserve those fleeting first few weeks of babyhood.  With a fully-equipped studio in Potomac, MD, Tina Krafts Photography works with clients throughout the Washington, D.C. metro area to create custom newborn portraits that both document those precious baby details and reflect each family’s individual style.  The studio is stocked with a carefully curated collection of gorgeous, high-quality backdrops, blankets, wraps, outfits, and hats (including lots and lots of bear bonnets – a personal favorite!) in a full range of colors, so Tina Krafts Photography can match a family’s aesthetic whether they prefer neutral tones, or are fans of bolder colors or patterns.   Of course, we are always happy to incorporate items of special significance to clients into newborn sessions as well, to further personalize those newborn images.

    If you would like to create custom newborn portraits that preserve your baby’s first weeks, please don’t hesitate to get in touch!  (It is never too early to reserve a space on my calendar for your newborn session!)

      Although most of my newborn portrait sessions take place within the first 2.5 weeks after the baby is born, I have photographed many, many “older” newborns, including this sweet girl, who was just about 5 weeks old at the time of her session.   As you can see, she was still a petite little girl at 5 weeks! She slept through most of her session, but we also captured some adorable awake images as well.  (Her wakeful expressions were simply adorable, especially her sweet little smile in the third image below!)

      We used a variety of different colors for her portraits, but her mom specifically requested that we use some pinks and incorporate some hearts into her session, to reflect the fact that she was born on Valentine’s Day. ❤  I am a total sucker for holiday-themed images, so you can imagine my excitement about this request!  (Be sure to scroll to the end to see some of the Valentine’s portraits.)
