Hi! I’m Tabitha and I'm a newborn and family photographer in Washington, DC specializing in lifestyle photography. During our session we will have fun and I can’t wait to capture the interaction, the laughs, the snuggles and the love within your family.

about tabitha

So glad you’re here! I thrive around people and connection. I am a self taught photographer and it makes my heart so happy to be able to infuse my love for connection into lifestyle family and newborn photography.

my lifestyle approach

When I’m photographing you, my goal is not to get everyone looking right at the camera and smiling saying “cheese”, however, I aim to capture your family and your beauty in a naturalistic way. I will lightly pose and direct and photograph the genuine connections between you and your family, resulting in a mix of portrait and candid images. 

I’m excited to spend about an hour with your family and learn about things that are important for you to remember - the face she makes when resting her head on your shoulder, the way you read books together, and the way you snuggle into your children.

I am a lifestyle photographer and I want you to remember how your photos make you feel.

Connection is more important than perfection!

I’m located in Washington, DC and I travel to all DC Metro areas including but not limited to, Alexandria, Bethesda, Chevy Chase, Friendship Heights, Potomac, Rockville, Silver Spring, Takoma Park, and Wheaton. An additional travel fee may be added farther than 20 miles of 20910.

I travel to my hometown of Atlanta, GA a few times a year and booking Atlanta newborn and family sessions on select dates.

lifestyle family sessions

Lifestyle family sessions are relaxed, playful and fun and can be on location in the Washington DC metro area or in the comfort of your own home. I’m happy to recommend a few areas that are great for family sessions. As I am taking these photos I will pose and guide you to interact naturally and I aim to capture your genuine connection during the session. 

lifestyle newborn sessions

Everything can move so fast when you have a new baby! The experience you will have during our lifestyle newborn session will be relaxed and baby led. Lifestyle newborn sessions typically take place in your home and use your home elements to tell the story of your baby’s arrival. Some of the special moments that will be documented include a light swaddle, photographing your baby in his/her crib, and your new baby getting all of the hugs and kisses from their new family! If you prefer to have an outdoor newborn session, we can do that too!

fresh 48 newborn sessions

Fresh 48 sessions are an additional newborn photo session that I offer. Fresh 48 sessions focus on your baby’s first 48 hours in their birth place - typically the hospital or your home. These sessions are documentary style and they include the details of the new moments and family experience as they welcome a new little one into their world. 

I love when families book both a Fresh 48 and a Lifestyle Newborn session because the baby grows so fast, even within a couple of weeks!

maternity sessions

Welcoming a new baby into this world is such a special experience and I would love to document this for you. I encourage you to invite your family members and children into your maternity session, as this is such a special time to help capture these moments!

Thanks again for being here and I hope to be able to photograph your family so you can have a collection of images to share with friends and family.

Photography is so powerful and you will be so happy years from now when you can look back on the images and remember exactly how that moment felt.
