What an exciting time it is having a baby and it doesn’t matter if it’s your first baby or your last, capturing that belly and time with your child before they make their entrance into the world is so important. These sessions include a 1 hour in studio (natural light only) or on location session. Two outfit changes and a downloadable gallery of at least 40 hand edited (for quality and artistic vision) high-resolution images in color with some black and white conversions with a personal print release. Best done between 32-36 weeks.


These sessions are designed to capture all the little features of your new bundle of joy in his/her purest form. From wrinkled toes and long eyelashes to tiny little fingernails. These sessions are typically shot in my natural light studio. Newborn sessions last 2-3 hours and will include 5-6 set-ups using props from my collection or items that have meaning to you or your family. You will receive ALL hand edited high-resolution images in color with some black and white conversions. These sessions are best when scheduled within 7-12 days of life.

Your session

This time is all about you

Before Your Session

We will correspond through email, phone, text…whatever is comfortable for you. I want to make sure I understand what you are looking for in your session and how we can make it go as smooth as possible. The ultimate goal is for your session to be more than you hoped for.

During Your Session

This will last anywhere from 30 minutes to 2 hours. There will be plenty of time for changes and breaks. When children are involved you never know how they will react so patience is key. It is the goal to create a relaxed atmosphere, thus capturing natural images encompassing who you are, as opposed to forced poses.

After Your Session

Your gallery will be available within 30 days unless other wise indicated. Once your gallery is live we will talk about your vision for printed products in your home. We will discuss canvases, albums, frames, and digital collections.  

The Location

Krystal works with natural light in several locations in and around Northern Virginia. Client preferences include: inside their home, their backyard, a favorite park, a favorite lake, the beach, or historic downtown.

What to wear

Wear what makes you, YOU! Don’t be afraid of bright colors and patterns as both of these tend to pop in photographs. Don’t feel that every subject in the shoot needs to match.
