Portraiture for every stage of Motherhood

As mothers, we often find ourselves caught up in everyday hustle and bustle of keeping our family well and thriving. How often are we doing something for ourselves? More importantly, how often are we documenting the stages of our babies' life - with us actually in them?

Serving all of Northern Virginia, Washington D.C., and the DC Maryland Suburbs

I'm THAT person... That person who has multiple devices completely filled with hundreds (...of thousands) of pictures. That person who can remember anything she did on any given day because there's a picture to go along with it! I LOVE capturing the tiny moments in life that might otherwise be forgotten.​

Not everyone has the passion (or is it OCD?) for capturing moments of their families that I do. I realized that they may WANT that passion, but don't have the time (or energy!) to be able to take great quality photographs of their families.

Hi There!

This made me realize I could be that photographer for others. Since I started my child, family, and newborn photography business, I have had the pleasure of documenting quality family moments all around Northern Virginia and Washington, DC.

Please check out my about me section, as well as the rest of my site, to see if we'd be a good fit. It's so important to have a photographer who you trust and feel comfortable with - they're by your side in some pretty amazing, and very intimate, moments.


BRADY | Milestone

Dana was absolutely amazing to work with!!! She captured the perfect photos of our son for his 1 year birthday! Her studio is fantastic, clean, and she makes you so welcome in her home. I would 10000% recommend her again and again! Having done research online I knew she’d be a great fit, and I couldn’t be happier!!

Maria | In HomE Newborn SEssion

Dana Graham did my new born family photo shoot and we could not be happier. The pictures tuned out wonderful and she made us, including 3 year old big sister, feel really comfortable and at ease during the shoot. Will definitely get her back for other photo needs.

Sarah | Baby's First Year

Dana has photographed every stage of my daughter’s existence, from the weeks before she was born, to our bleary-eyed hospital days, to our first days home as a family, and beyond. She is amazing to work with in every way possible - she works true magic with her camera and creates a relaxing and fun experience for both us as the parents and our baby! 

Stephanie | Milestone

Dana had our daughter (and us) smiling and laughing from the very start. Her studio is so open with so much natural light and she was prepared with toys to grab our daughter’s attention, if needed. Only three days after the shoot, she had the full online gallery ready for viewing and the photos she captured were amazing! We’re already excited to use Dana again in the future.

Jennifer | FAmily Session

Dana was amazing to work with! With a 5 month old and a dog, we definitely had a chaotic environment for a photo shoot but she was incredibly patient with us and captured beautiful, real images of our family that we'll treasure forever. Would absolutely recommend working with her - especially for family shoots!

Christine | Maternity & In Home Newborn

Dana was GREAT to work with! She captured our maternity and newborn sessions perfectly. She made us feel so comfortable and at ease the entire time. We look forward to booking our next session with her.
