We capture life’s most authentic moments through personalized family photography. My passion is to

The Michelle Lindsay Photography Studio is based in Loudoun County, but I’m available for travel throughout Northern Virginia and the DMV area. I offer newborn, maternity, and family portrait sessions, professionally coordinated from start to finish.


When people ask me why we don’t include all the digital images with our collections, my answer is always this:

“Do you plan to print, frame and hang 50 photos of your family?”

You don’t need 100, or 50 or even 25 “meh” family portraits. You need a handful of great ones you love.


Wishing you all a Thanksgiving full of good food, snuggles, and rest 🤍


Our office is just like Santa's workshop over here these days- busy busy busy!


There have been a WHOLE lot of smiles in the studio lately 🥰


We are in the midst of our busiest time of year here at MLP! SO many beautiful families captured with many more to go 💕


Studio Holiday sessions are almost sold out! We have just a couple spots left on Saturday 11/4 and one spot left on Sunday 11/5. Hit the link below for more info!


We have just a few spots left for family photos this fall! Send us a DM if you'd like to grab one of our final mini session slots on October 15 in DC or November 7 in Leesburg with Alyssa.


Slowing down takes intention. It requires dedication. It requires saying NO.

Whenever things feel out of control for me as a parent, I like to ask myself “when was the last time I said NO?” Do you remember?
Soaking in these moments with our babies requires saying no to certain things so that our calendars are free to say yes to long picnic lunch dates, impromptu drive to the beach day and messy pancake making Saturday mornings.

Slow and sweet. That’s what I’m chasing…


twenty perfect little toes 👣💕


An unedited image is like an unfinished symphony - flat and boring. Give that image love and attention, and suddenly, it starts to sing.

So much goes into the artistry of any given single image. When you’re only seeing the finished product, it’s hard sometimes to remember that there’s more to great professional photography than taking pretty pictures. Clicking the shutter is only one small step in a very intricate process.

From concept to creation in Studio, image selection to editing, printing to installation, I don’t consider my job complete until your family’s images are on display in your home.

Does picking outfits for family photos have you on your closet floor in a puddle of clothes crying?

We gotcha. 😉

1. Start with a color palette you love

2. Pick mom's outfit first - women are usually the pickest

3. Build from there, layering in textures and different tonalities of your chosen palette

Here are 2 great fall color palettes to get you started, but if you need more, hit up the link below to download our Fall Style Guide!



Around here, we whole-heartedly believe that your family’s portraits should live in your home…not your computer. It’s why our fall sessions come inclusive with both digital AND printed product!

We also include a virtual design appointment where we’ll help you curate the best images and design speciality products like cards and gifts.

Getting your family’s portraits off your hard drive and into your hallways where you can actually enjoy them has never been simpler.



It's been a minute since we've shown our faces around here!
I'm Michelle, owner and lead photographer here at MLP. Next to me is Alyssa, our Studio Manager and Associate Photographer.

Say hey in the comments!


Photos of your baby are always precious (and you know they are the favorite around here!) but it's also important to have some photos of your baby's parents, too 😉


Is there anything better than newborn snuggles like this?!


Hello, world 🥰

Many of my moms request a special baby portrait of them breastfeeding. For this particular mom, breastfeeding was such a challenging journey for the first 3 months of her son’s life. She really wanted to commentate the experience. We also documented the intimate bond it gave her with her baby.

If you're interested in documenting this super special time with your baby, get in touch below!


While a lot of the session will be focused on baby, we want to make sure we let your big kid(s) have some special photos too! Letting them take some images solo with their new little sibling will make them feel grown up and extra special 🤍 Doing these newborn photos in our photo studio in Leesburg (Studio at 428) will make this really simple, as we have lots of comfy and safe places for them to sit together!


The very first thing to decide when planning a photo session for your infant is what time of day are we most likely to get this big, personality revealing smiles?! You know your baby best, so choose the time when you know those sweet giggles are likely to come out. 💕

For your maternity & newborn photos we know you have A LOT going on, and that’s why professional hair and makeup is included in the cost of your session!


Double the joy, double the cuteness! Photographing twins for their newborn session is so fun. Twice the smiles, twice the snuggles, and twice the sweetness. This is just the beginning of the bond and connection between these little ones. 👶👶✨

Our inbox is bursting with emails from mamas with babies due in the fall! We can't wait to meet you all and your little ones 🤍


Newborn photographers like to focus on the bond between brand new parents and their new little baby. We don’t want any one person to stand out more than the other. Opting for neutrals in everyone’s outfits allow a cohesive image where the focus remains on baby. As a bonus, it allows you more flexibility for displaying your beautiful newborn photography images in your home.


Who's ready for some weekend snuggles?!


For our Studio newborn photography sessions, we create the perfect environment for our newborns by bringing in a heater, cozy posing props, white noise machine and soft wraps to help baby sleep soundly through the majority of their session.


Babies start to really show off their big personalities around 6-8 months, and it is just so much fun to capture those moments in photos! I love getting to see a baby as a squishy newborn, and then get to know them a bit more as they grow.


Memories you can touch are the very best kind! 😉

These big smiles are one of my favorite things about the 6 month old baby photo session 🥰


Life gets busy and it can be easy to put off scheduling your newborn photographer. Yet it’s really best not to wait much past your 2nd trimester. Reserving your photoshoot early ensures you get the photographer of your choice and have plenty of time to plan outfits. You will 100% feel much more relaxed coming home from the hospital knowing that everything is already scheduled so you can focus on your brand new baby! If you're expecting a little one and want to chat, feel free to send us a DM!


Stunning mama 🤍


Tiny details but really big feelings 💕


One thing I love about Studio at 428 is that we have ways to make it fun for all ages 💓



How we feel after a big weekend celebrating the dads in our lives!

I hope you get the chance to celebrate the dads in your life this weekend 🤍


It really is a joy to get to meet and photograph so many great dads. Seeing the bond between dads and their newborns is extra special!


Is it Friday yet?!
