in-home lifestyle newborn session
This beautiful mama carried her baby with such joy, style and grace! Our sunset session together at the end of winter was glamorous and the perfect way to celebrate baby #4 entering their family!
outdoor newborn session
"'If I am thinking correctly,' said Pooh, 'a new baby is probably, undoubtedly the grandest gift that could ever be.’”
The beautiful Domingus family has welcomed a new little life into their home and I had the GREAT joy of photographing them and their precious son Ezra! He was tiny and squishy and perfect in every way!!
in-home lifestyle newborn session
Welcoming a new little one into your family can be exhausting and thrilling and wonderful all at the same time! I’m so glad that this family decided to capture this special session in their lives with portraits!! Barrett’s family (complete with the most adorable big sister) was all smiles and jokes for his big portrait session debut! What a joy to photograph their family!
authentic • joyful • colorful
That soft skin, little puckered lips, wrinkly fingers and toes… the newborn stage may seem like it lasts forever (especially when you’re up all night long) but oh my how quickly it goes by! Let’s capture those details so that you can always remember this special time in your precious little one’s life!
Freeze time for just a second so you can remember their tiny fingers and toes, fresh baby skin, little yawns…
Congratulations on your new little one!! Children are such a precious gift and whether you have a newborn through birth or adoption, know that I am celebrating with you!!
I offer both in-home lifestyle and outdoor sessions in the warmer months. I would love to hear from you and help make your hopes and dreams for this session become a reality! My priorities during portrait sessions are care and safety for your baby and making an easy, relaxed session for mom and dad that results in gorgeous and timeless portraits.
1. Say Hello
2. Let's book it!
Newborn sessions are traditionally scheduled between 5-14 days of baby's life but I am flexible and happy to work with you no matter how many days old your little one is. When you are ready to schedule your session, we will discuss potential dates that work best for you.
A signed contract and paid session fee are required to secure your date. The session fee covers the time and talent of the photographer as well as access to styling services and client closet pieces. All digital images, prints, and wall art are sold separately.
Did you know that I offer a 15% discount on Newborn session fees when you book Maternity and Newborn sessions at the same time?
This is where the fun begins! It is my joy to come alongside you and help with styling and wardrobe so that you (and your family) look and feel beautiful! I offer my clients access to an online styling service as well as access to my Client Closet dresses (for women) and accessories (for children). For newborns, I have an assortment of wraps that I use for baby, even for candid lifestyle pictures. My goal is to help you all along the way to make this as EASY and STRESS FREE for you as possible!
We will also discuss a location (in your home or outdoors) that is perfect for the overall look and feel of the session you want.
Yay!! We made it! Portrait day is my favorite! I will either come to your home or the outdoor location we choose along with the props we decided on. Newborn sessions typically last between 1-2 hours as we leave plenty of time for feeding and diaper changes. You won't be rushed at all and we will allow your little one to be relaxed and peaceful during the session.
If you have older children as well, I bring a variety of "tricks" to help keep their attention and to help all of my clients (young and old) happy and our sessions feeling relaxed and natural. Sessions will include a mixture of traditional poses as well as candid lifestyle moments.
4. Portrait day!!
Within 3 weeks, you will receive your private edited gallery to preview and select which Portrait Package you would like to purchase. Prints and canvases are also available for purchase.
I want all of my clients to walk away with beautiful tangible products that they can put on their walls, which is why I include prints or prints credits in most of my packages. So often, digital images just sit on our computers/devices and we don't take that next step of printing them out. I want to break that habit and make sure my clients SEE their beautiful portraits in their homes. I'm happy to help you choose wall art that best fits your home!

Absolutely AMAZING photographer!!! The pictures she took of our family are simply stunning. She was easy to work with, patient with my kids, fast and so professional. We are thrilled and will definitely be calling Jenny again!
Amanda & Danny
Jenny was absolutely great to work with. She is effortlessly laid back in her personality and ability to capture great shots while adapting to the vibe of the session. We love the photos she took of our young family and will definitely use her again for family photos. Highly recommend!
Kyle & Shannon
I always feel such a renewed sense of joy and blessing when I get to look through our family photos. Jenny has such a gift! Thank you for sharing it with us and capturing the beauty that we see in our family. I can’t wait to get these printed!
outdoor newborn session
Sarah & Jeff
Our experience with Be Thou My Vision Photography was fabulous in every way! Jenny asked all the right questions to assure our pictures came out just the way we envisioned. She perfectly captured the personalities of my children and the beauty of the Shenandoah Valley in portraits my family will enjoy and cherish for years to come.
Sandy & Jonathan
Jenny is a fantastic photographer. She provides top quality photos with reasonable costs . She has photographed both of my girls numerous times for their senior photos and also did a family session. She is creative, pleasant to work with, and made us all feel comfortable. I highly recommend Jenny.
Stormi & Travis
We had family pictures taken by Jenny and to say we are pleased is an understatement. We’ve seen her wonderful work before but our pictures turned out better than we imagined. She was so easy to communicate with beforehand and was extremely easygoing during the shoot. She is a mom so she totally gets it, but because of her tricks the children willingly smiled for her, making it even more enjoyable (and successful)! It was such a quick shoot and we have so many gems to show from it. We cannot recommend her enough! Book your family portraits now!

Grace & Mike
Jenny recently took photos of our newborn as well as our other small children and she did a wonderful job. She had clever ways of capturing the toddlers' attention while keeping it fun for them. I appreciated that I didn't need to have all of the ideas and poses figured out... she helped with all of it. Now we have plenty of photos of our family and our biggest struggle is choosing which one is best - we love them all!! Thank you, Jenny!
