Newborn Portraits

Congratulations on your new addition!  We can't think of a better way to welcome your new baby than to capture their precious features and the excitement in your eyes.  Creating beautiful portraits in the first couple weeks of your baby's life is so important. You turn around for 2 seconds and BAM your newborn is now a toddler.

Armato Photography can capture this special time for you and your family to cherish forever.  Let us bring the studio to you. We can photograph your newborn in the comfort of your own home, so no need to stuff the diaper bag with bottles, diapers and clothes.  We are based in Clarksburg, Maryland and serve the greater Washington D.C area.   

Natural Posing

We believe that babies are beautiful and perfect, just the way they are.  We love to lay them on the bed and watch as they stretch out, yawn and find a comfy position. It's super fun to hear mom say, "he used to get into that position in the womb all the time". 

Keeping things simple and clean lets us really focus on the beautiful details of your baby. Those perfect little toes and fingers, and my personal favorite the giant yawn!

We love photographing babies in just a diaper, or a neutral toned swaddle blanket. Creams, gray or white are great choices.  If you have a favorite outfit or handmade item that you'd love to have your little one photographed in, we're all for it.

Parents - Prepare to be photographed!

As much as we love photographing babies, we love getting parents and siblings in front of the camera too.

Take some time and coordinate your outfits for the session.  Simple solid colors without logos or patterns are best.  


Our newborn sitting fee is $300. This fee includes your session and approximately 35 images presented in an online gallery for your viewing and ordering. 

We've partnered  with the best color labs in the country and offer several prints and print products that are available for purchase directly from your gallery.

Location, Location, Location

Armato Photography is based in Clarksburg, Maryland and servers the greater Washington D.C area. We know traffic around here can be intense! So, we like to take the stress off of you and make your session simple, fun and relaxing. 

We have a compact, mobile studio lighting setup that allows us to create "natural" light no matter where we get to shoot. We love that this gives us the freedom to travel to your location and photograph your family and newborn right in the comfort of your own home. We do have some tips and thoughts we'd like to share with you about having us come to your home. We have a small homework assignment for you as your session date approaches, we promise, no solving for X or Y, just looking for the most photogenic areas in your home.  Check out your post here for more information.
