Megan's Maternity Session | Ashburn, VA Maternity Photographer

Isn't she beautiful at 33 weeks? This mama-to-be even did her own hair and makeup! All I had to do was find some beautiful dresses and outfits from the ever growing collection of hair accessories and maternity gowns at my studio.


The images that came out of this session were nothing short of stunning for this beautiful mama. What a treasured memory of a fascinating journey!

Happy Mother's Day & A Special Offer!

According to Wikipedia, Mother's Day was first celebrated in 1908, when Anna Jarvis held a memorial for her mother at St. Andrew's Methodist Church in Grafton, West Virginia. In 1914, Woodrow Wilson signed a proclamation designating Mother's Day, held on the second Sunday in May, as a national holiday to honor mothers.


Here, at ArtCafe Photography, we encourage moms to "get in the picture" year-round. Maternity, newborn, mommy & me, family sessions...these are all great options to capture the connection between a mom and her child. Images of their bond will be the biggest treasure.



Today we wish all moms a very happy Mother's Day filled with lots of love, some quiet time and hopefully chocolate or a glass of wine! <3



We've also created a special offer for all moms, present and expecting. You deserve a memorable gift for all the little and big things you do every single day!



Please contact us at or through our contact form by May 31st, 2018 to book your Mommy & Me or Maternity Session. Start making memories for yourself and your children today!

ArtCafe Photography Couture Sessions

After weeks of brainstroming, photographing, editing, sorting through clothing and starting all over again they are finally here - our all new ArtCafe Couture Sessions. This is the first of a brand new line of sessions that we are planning to introduce in 2018. We'll announce more over the next months.


What are ArtCafe Couture Sessions?

These are 30 minute sessions where we are photographing for a certain product only. We offer in studio or outdoor options, depending on what you prefer.


Do I have to bring my own outfit?

No. We have an ever growing collection of beautiful dresses right here in the studio. Sizes range from baby to about 10 years. If you pefer to bring your own outfit that's perfectly fine as well.


What about accessories?

Yes, we have many! Headbands, crowns, necklaces, hats and more - you name it. The only thing we ask you to bring is shoes if you want your child to wear any.


What is included with this special edition package?

These sessions are a bit different from our regular children's sessions, or any of our sessions, in fact. One outfit, 15-30 minutes, three beautiful images, one piece of timeless wall art.


Who are these sessions for?

From our experience over the years we've learned that most families love bigger image galleries for maternity and newborn sessions as well as baby's first year. After baby's first birthday many parents ask for only a couple of photographs to remember the changes and growth of their little ones. So far we only offered our regular sessions with a gallery of 20-30 (many times even more) images. It is very difficult to choose just a few. For that reason we've decided to come up with a solution to make the experience quicker and easier. Our regular sessions with multiple outfit changes, larger image galleries and the full variety of print products are always available, but if you are looking for just the one image, these sessions are for you.



Are these sessions only designed for girls?

Absolutely not! Unfortunately we don't have many boy's outfits in the studio. This is the only reason why you see just pretty dresses in this blog post. Don't think twice about dressing your little man up or down for a Couture Session. He'll look gorgeous, no matter what style you prefer for him!
