At Hush Hush Little Baby Newborn Care, we get a wide variety of questions from the families we serve. We’re asked about everything from sleep training to baby friendly restaurants, but there’s one question I’m always excited to answer “Who are the best newborn photographers in DC?” The DC metro area is home to some of the best newborn photographers and I’m happy to share with you some of our favorites!


{BETH} A-DILLY Photography
Bethany Deschamp, of {beth}a-dilly photography, is a lifestyle newborn photographer in Northern Virginia and Washington DC. Bethany loves to capture simple and natural moments of new parents with their teeny tiny newest addition!  With the use of natural light only, Bethany loves working with clients in the comfort of their own home to capture some of the first days and moments of new families with their little ones.

When she is not photographing for clients, Bethany loves to write photography articles to help inspire other photographers and has been published on the Clickin Moms blog and on Click It Up A Notch. She is also the creator and leader of the Bethadilly Challenge on Instagram, a daily photo challenge created to inspire photographers to take one photo every day for an entire year.

In Bethany’s own words “My favorite thing about being a photographer is that moment when clients see their images for the very first time, and knowing that she captured some of their happiest memories that they will cherish forever.”


Jessica Caso Photography

Jessica Caso is an award-winning, published newborn and family photographer serving the Washington DC area.

In her own words “My objective during our session is to capture those moments that we all experience, the ones when you look at your child and they make that one face and smile and you think to yourself that seriously there has never been a cuter thing in the history of the world. Those moments as a family when you understand that you all go together so well even though at times your son seems to come from a different planet and you wonder when the mother-ship is coming back to get him. Basically I’m trying to get as close as possible to capturing what makes your family your life. It’s a tall order. I want to capture the beauty of your family the way that you feel it and understand it and want it to last forever. I look forward to working with you and your family and creating images that you will love and always cherish.”


Gena Marie Photography

I specialize in newborn, baby, maternity photography around Washington DC metro areas as well as Southern Maryland.  My style is custom and artistic fine art portraiture.  I strive to deliver unique images that are natural and inviting for families, children and newborns.

Speaking of newborns, they are my absolute favorite subject to photograph.  I love everything about brand new babies, especially the feelings of sheer excitement, joy and elation that build during the session and multiply when I sit down to process the images once the session is complete.  I vividly remember the awesome feeling of having my four little-ones photographed in their first few days and relish the opportunity to capture your newborn’s new-ness.  My goal with newborns is to create soft, beautiful, natural images of your newest addition.

In her words: “Newborns are my absolute favorite subject to photograph.  I love everything about brand new babies, especially the feelings of sheer excitement, joy and elation that build during the session and multiply when I sit down to process the images once the session is complete.”

Shey Marin Photographysheymarin
Shey Detterline of Shey Marin Photography has been a leading newborn photographer in the DC area since 2008. She provides on location, natural light photography with a specialty in maternity, birth, newborn, baby, child, family and senior photography in the Frederick, MD and Washington DC area. Shey offers in home and on location photo sessions in the Baltimore and Washington DC Metropolitan area including NOVA.

In her own words “My favorite interaction to capture at each session seems to always be the mom with her child. Moms are never the ones in front of the camera so it’s my favorite image to get.” She added “I’m a big believer in that positivity attracts positivity so I work to live that way and choose the happy path when I can.”
