Newborn sessions

We got our daughters newborn photos done by Irina and they are gorgeous!! I never thought how much work it takes to get babies in the perfect pose but Irina knew just what to do... she must be a baby whisperer. The images are perfect, a great eye for details during editing. Being in southern Maryland it's hard to get great work and timely responses, but Irina was just perfect! Definitely will be going back for photo session if we are still in town in the fall.

I recently gave birth to my third child and have previously taken my children to JC Pennys for their pictures. With the last one I wanted authentic newborn pictures taken. After researching local photographers I decided to call Irina. She returned my call very quickly and was even able to schedule my appointment on Easter so I could get the pictures done as quickly as possible. I had all three of my children photographed together plus a newborn session. My two year old is a handful to say the least. Irina was incredibly patient with her as we tried to get pictures taken. I received my pictures last night and I couldn't be happier with them. She was able to capture the personalities of all three of my children. There is no doubt I will be returning to her every time I want pictures taken. I would highly recommend her to anybody who is looking for beautiful pictures!!

My hesitations stem from not having good experiences before (hiring friends / friends of friends). Irina was educated and very experienced! She was thorough, professional, flexible and I could tell she truly loves what she does! Our experience in the studio was relaxed and calm. We had snacks and comfy couches to sit on, as well as cute outfits to browse through. The pictures were beautiful - and I love the 8x8 canvas! I love my pictures, thank you, Irina, for making this experience the best one yet!

! Newborn sessions take more time than any other session due to waiting between the poses until the baby is asleep as well as changing and feeding the baby as needed (hence it usually takes 1 hour per 1 outfit).

! Newborn sessions also require at least twice more editing than any other session to delicately and thoroughly brush the baby’s skin to perfection, including:

– smoothing red and yellow spots throughout the body.

– removing red face marks many babies have for a while after the labor.

– evening out the drastic difference in color between the body and the feet. 

This is a complex and lengthy editing process, and it’s already built into your package.

* Every package includes a planning questionnaire and tips on what to wear and bring to your session.

* Beautiful and creative newborn photography props and outfits  are included at no additional cost.

* To book your session, you will need to sign a photography agreement and a model release and pay a $135 retainer (you pay the rest on the day of the session)

– All sessions happen in my home studio in Upper Marlboro, MD. Sessions at your house are available at additional cost. 

– If you don’t want newborn studio portraits but instead prefer lifestyle family portraits, please refer to my “Family sessions” page and its pricing which starts from $314 for 10 best images.
