About the Studio


Virginia Newborn Photographer Offering Studio & On-Location Sessions

in Botetourt County & the Roanoke Valley


Owens-Lugar Photography is an award winning studio specializing in Maternity + Newborn Portraiture.  For me, nothing beats sharing in the excitement as a couple celebrates their pregnancy, seeing the love in their eyes as I mold and pose their new baby in precious ways, and the tears of happiness when parents first see these captures created for them to cherish forever. Those adorably chubby cheeks, wiggling toes, soft tufts of hair, and yummy baby rolls are over-the-top precious! I’m so grateful that my clients trust in me to capture these amazing times for their families. It is truly an honor!

These captures are created with great love, care, and patience. These gentle sessions ensure that your little one is forever remembered as teeny and curled as when first born. Baby’s 1st Year Milestone sessions are available for newborn clients. Each Fall and Spring, Family Portraiture will be available on select weekends. As always, thank you for allowing me to create lifelong memories for you and your family!

Want to watch a session in action? Here’s a glimpse into what happens behind the scenes of a newborn session I truly love working with these sweet little blessings, and so much patience, care, and planning goes into each and every custom session.  My client families are so pleased with the extra attention given to sanitation during the newborn session, both in the cleanliness of the studio, props, fabrics, and of course, me!!!  Throughout the entire session, I am sure to keep my hands sanitized, pacifier clean, and as an extra measure, I wear a surgical mask as to not breathe directly on your newborn.  The studio is kept at a balmy 85 degrees to keep your newborn warm and comfortable during the session.  An extra space heater is nearby to keep the blankets and props toasty for baby, and the wipe warmer makes clean up less chilly.  In addition to the baby, the soothing sound machine has been known to help parents catch a snooze while I am working 🙂  {Hooray!}

I am so grateful to Jillian’s mama, Lindsey, for sharing these videos she took during her baby’s session!  {Seriously, I have the BEST job!} ♥♥♥
