While the government has deemed photography a “non-essential” business during COVID-19, I am instead finding time to blog past sessions while I’m not behind the camera. This at home newborn session in Arlington, VA from earlier this year truly epitomizes what at home newborn photography is all about. As families welcome new little ones into their lives and homes, they way that truly looks is what should endure the most over the years.
Although I deliver images from every at home newborn session with a huge variety of both color and black and white newborn photographs, I always find a special place in my hart for the black and white photos. Black and white images feel to me to be timeless and evoke memories in a way that is more about how they feel than the way the look.
This is BIG Brother! A few years ago, I also photographed his own at home newborn session. Check it out his newborn photos HERE.
Sibling “Poses” has always been a little bit of a funny subject for me. Although I can make suggestions, it’s ultimately up to the big brother to decided how that works out. This particular guy absolutely nailed the sibling pose for this at home newborn session.
I have to be honest, one of my favorite parts to every at home newborn session are the outtakes! We were singing “The Wheels on the Bus” and the verse where the babies were crying and this came up. So cute!
Baby Toes are the best! ….am I right?!? The only thing that could make it sweeter is big brother jumping in with his own toes.
Although I have many at home newborn photograph sessions that include dogs, I only occasionally have a cat join a newborn session. ….but this furry family member jumped right in and isn’t she beautiful?!?
This is one of my favorite photos for this at home newborn photography session. The dynamic lighting makes it perfect for black and white and I love the silhouette of mom & dad and a cameo appearance from mom’s wedding rings.
As a newborn photographer, I realize you need a few of those picture perfect “framers” that grandma wants for her wall and I absolutely do those too.

Hi I’m Erin and the artist behind Erin Tetterton Photography. Welcome to the photographic THE ARCHIVES.
I believe our lives are divine orchestrations. We each have a story and I believe they are stories that deserve to be told and told well. From Weddings, to Babies, and to celebrate the years we are just glad to have behind us. The photos I take are the images that tell the story. Your own history. Your family’s history. ….and the history of those generations that are to come.
My goal is to create authentic, timeless imagery that accurately depicts each phase of your life. Those phases will be different, unique, and beautiful. Inject humor! Do them in a place you love!
