Joint Base Andrews Lifestyle Newborn Photographer |Baby Amelia {3 Weeks Old}

Lifestyle newborn photography is one of my favorite genres to document! Amelia’s family had one main element that I love when doing a session: a lot of kids! I know many people get nervous around the chaos of a big family, but the fact that was the youngest out of five made it even more special for me!

Amelia’s mom had an experience that I have had many times with my third. After the first few kids, you start thinking, I don’t need this… or I can get by without this. Sometimes you really don’t need it, and other times, you are trying to save money because you have more kids! After soaking in the newness of Amelia for a few weeks, Amelia’s mom realized that newness was fleeting, so reached out to see if we could have a lifestyle newborn session ASAP. She initially thought she didn’t need another newborn session, but as Amelia grew, she knew she wanted to document it!

I’m so glad that even at three weeks Amelia finally gave in and let us get her in a good wrap and fell asleep. And she rocked her sessions with the siblings and mom, dad, and Uncle Bob! A lifestyle newborn session is so much fun because rather than just having a lot of pictures of the baby, you get to capture all of the chaos and love of everyone in the family!

If you would like to book a session, I still have some fall openings, so contact me today through my contact page or by e-mailing me at And don’t forget I have openings still for my holiday minis at the Christmas tree farm! Details are on the Facebook page. I’m back at my teaching job as of Monday, so I will be back to taking only three sessions per month.

And always, remember that photography is that chance to freeze these memories in time forever!

Meet Teresa


Hi. I’m Teresa. While photography is a part-time job for me, documenting your stories doesn’t ever get treated like it’s not important. My full-time gig is teaching high school English, journalism, and photography at an all-boys’ school in Washington, DC. Journalism is my favorite subject to teach because it is as much about writing as it is about the art of observing the world, and I became a photographer because of my experiences in photojournalism.

You’ll see in galleries with my families, children, newborns, or weddings, my style definitely is more about documenting connection and trying to create real moments. I love a good portrait, but my heart is happiest when I get real smiles from people loving on and playing with each other.
