Let's rewind to 2013 when my hobby was becoming very time consuming and my friends were asking me on a regular basis to capture photos of their family. Not to mention, my three children were in school full-time.
So, what’s the logical next step? Take a leap of faith and open a photography business, obviously!
Today, as a lifestyle photographer in the Washington, D.C. area, I’m grateful for you, my clients, who welcome me in your homes and allow me to capture your current stage of life – whether you just brought home your first child or your third!
Looking to book timeless, in-home DC-area newborn or family photos? You’re in the right place!
I’m a fifth-generation Washingtonian. I grew up in the city, so it feels good to get back to my roots!
When I was a teacher, my first grade class attended my wedding ceremony at
Christ Church, Georgetown!
Green thumb? YES! My newly developed green thumb came out of 2020 quarantine! And my prayer plant is my favorite.
Georgie is my furry assistant (a Shih Tzu actually) and always by my side as I edit.
I haven’t met a dress I didn’t like! And it’s hard for me to go shopping without buying one.
When my husband was in the Army, we lived in three states (MD, OH & NC) and Germany.
My sweet spot is in capturing your family’s real life, through my lens. With bright, natural images that show you and your growing crew in your best light.
From a personal, pre-session consultation call, to session prep guides with tips on what to wear and how to prepare – all the way through to the heirloom prints and photo albums I design for you and your beautiful family – I have it covered.
Your images will be timeless, and your experience will be tailored to you.
all you have to do is show-up and enjoy the magic!
"I was worried our 18 month old would misbehave during out family shoot...once Natasha arrived that worry washed away. She was so wonderful with our toddler and made us all feel at ease. Our newborn photos turned out wonderfully!"
"With 3 children, one being a newborn and a dog to top it off, I was overwhelmed just 3 weeks post birth...she added calmness to the crazy. She was so easy to work with and made me feel good."
"I love that we got to be ourselves in the comfort of our home. Natasha captured such sweet moments with our little ones. Even my three year old, who is usually a bit shy, warmed right up and was sad to see Natasha go. She later said, 'That was so much fun mommy!' "
"I highly recommend everyone get a lifestyle newborn session with NPS Photography. she made me feel super comfortable and relaxed (which isn't easy with a toddler and a newborn). Best of all, out photos are amazing!"
"Working with Natasha was a dream! Natasha was with us every step of the way from helping us prepare for our session, booking flexibility when our little girl arrived a few weeks early, making us feel so comfortable, and delivering such special images quickly and beautifully."
a tailored approach
Think your house is too dark or isn’t styled like something out of a magazine?
Worried your toddler won’t cooperate?
Let me guess, your husband isn’t a huge fan of family photos?
Well, I’m all about capturing those real life, unscripted, full-of-personality (or some may say chaotic) moments in the place you call home. And to make the whole photo session experience FUN for every family member.
You won’t get a one-size-fits-all session experience with me.
Instead, you’ll quickly realize I’m passionate about building a relationship with you to truly provide you with a customized approach - from a pre-session phone consult to providing you with what to wear and session prep guides.
All this so you are relaxed and ready to have me capture what makes your family yours!
