Nataly Danilova Photography
we specialize in Maternity, Newborn, Childrens and Family Portraiture
Families change so quickly from the excitement of the first positive pregnancy test, the anticipation of a growing belly, the small wonder of a newborn, and the many milestones met within the first year.
You want to remember some moments forever...But they seem to be so fleeting once the hectic times of midnight feedings, sibling squabbles, and shuttling between activities all begin. It becomes so important to record these special times through photography which can be preserved in albums, shared with family, and displayed in a gallery wall within the family home.

The biggest thing that drives my passion as a baby photographer is capturing those first few sweet, monumental stages for families: pregnancy, birth, and first-year milestones. All of this goes by in the blink of an eye, and I love photographing the magic and wonder of it all, making sure this time is documented in beautiful collections of memoirs.
About the year
In 2018, I photographed more than 400 newborns, and I loved every minute of it! I met so many wonderful families, and as a mother myself, I am so excited for this parenting adventure they are embarking on. Children bring an endless supply of joy, laughs, and fun-filled craziness to the family dynamic. Parents end up challenging themselves and doing things they never would have imagined without their children to motivate them. It really is a fantastic experience.
It’s also a wonderful feeling to see my hard work and passion paying off. I am so happy to announce that I have been awarded the #2 Best Baby Photographer of 2018 by the International Baby Photography Awards. 29 of my photos were chosen for this award, and you can check them out below!
Selected images ranged from holiday images, whimsical newborn photos, glamourous maternity portraits, and more! I had so much fun utilizing my creativity and finding new ideas for backdrops and props. But the magic can’t all be attributed to me—I worked with exceptional clients who added the inspiration for these photos. We all know that you can’t have adorable newborn portraits without the babies themselves, so I want to express my deepest gratitude to these families for sharing their hearts and adorable cuties with me. Your little ones truly made these images, and I couldn’t do it without you!
Now, with another year beginning, I can’t wait to photograph even more bundles of joy and magical moments for families. It seems like I am getting more and more twins and multiples in my studio, so maybe they will create an award for that special niche! 😉 No matter what your family dynamic looks like, I can’t wait to capture the essence of your family and portray your close bonds with each other. Family really is one of the greatest parts of life, and I would love to document it for you!
2019 is booking up fast, so if you’re expecting a new family member, reach out to book your maternity, newborn, or milestone sessions today! I can’t wait to meet you!

Welcoming a baby into the world is hands down one of the most exciting events in life. The journey to motherhood is unlike anything else women get to experience, and there is something so magical about watching bodies grow and change to accommodate the life inside. I love capturing these moments for my clients and their families in Northern Virginia, and am so honored to be selected as one of the best in the business by Expertise.
In 2017, Expertise picked me as the best maternity photographer serving Fairfax county, and now in 2018, for the second year in a row, they’ve named me as the best in Fairfax county again. It is such an honor to be recognized for my work because I am so passionate about what I do! I really enjoy getting to know my clients and delivering them photos they will treasure for years to come. I think it is so important to document these once-in-a-lifetime moments. It’s essential to celebrate the milestones, embrace the changes, and soak in the details because they don’t last forever. The dark under eye circles, the new mom glow, the ever growing bump- there is nothing as beautiful and sacred as pregnancy and I am so glad I get to share in the experience with so many of my beloved clients. I absolutely love what I do, and I am honored to be recognized yet again by Expertise as the best maternity photographer in Fairfax county.
