I have been photographing newborns for almost 10 years. It is one of my most favorite parts of my job and it is an absolute honor to be able to capture such a special moment. As an Atlanta baby photographer, I specialize in lifestyle naturally posed photography. No crazy backdrops or buckets - all of the focus is on your family. These are the photos your kids will want to look back on. These will be treasured for generations.
Most of my clients contact me a few months before their due date to get on the schedule. We go over details and choose the location (in home or studio) and outfits together. About 1-4 weeks after baby’s arrival, we have our session! It lasts about 1.5 hours and we include baby photos, parents, siblings, full family, sweet details and everything in between. I bring wraps and everything that we need for baby.
The Portrait Experience begins right here – with communication and connection! We will plan a call where we go over details, the experience, how I can help, and chat about the vision for your Portrait Experience. Once we decide that we are a good fit, we begin planning!
Let's chat to make sure we are a good fit!

After your session is confirmed, your Portrait Experience officially begins! We will go over your must haves and what your plan is for your photographs after our session. We will plan each detail with you, from outfit inspiration to session tips – so you can make the most of your experience! You will have the option of using our dresses, getting help with shopping & family outfit styling, our favorite hair/make up recommendations, and of course tips for a seamless session.
Plan the details!

Your session will be centered all around you and your loved ones. With all of the planning and preparing we will do before your session, you will start your session with confidence. During your session, we will get whole family looking at camera photos, individual child photos, and tons of naturally guided photos that will show your family's true smiles and pure love. Get ready for tons of cuddles, kisses, and sweet moments with your favorite people.
It's the day you've been waiting for!
step 03 of 06
Gallery, Frames, and Albums galore!
We will set a date for your ordering/viewing appointment within 2 weeks after your session. We have the option of meeting in your home or an online call. Here, you will view your gallery for the first time, see our beautiful frames and prints, visualize them on your walls, and of course, take a look at our most beautiful heirloom albums. You will be able to purchase your digital images and artwork today and download your gallery as well!
step 04 of 06
You will have access to your digital images right after the ordering appointment and your artwork will arrive in about 3-4 weeks. I believe that your photographs should be displayed so that you feel the warmth and joy from each moment you walk by them in your home, when your child looks through their album they feel and know their place in their family, and you are able to pass down these beautiful memories for generations.

06. should we do an in home or in Studio newborn session?
05. Do you offer hair/Makeup recommendations?
04. can i print the photos on my own?
03. Is the petite session enough time? How much is the gallery upgrade?
02. How long after the session will my gallery be ready?
01. What do we wear FOR OUR ATLANTA BABY PHOTOGRAPHY SESSION?
I always suggest to stick to light neutrals with subtle pops of color/print. Avoid matching everyone in the same color or same tones. To create depth, select 2 neutrals and 1 light color tone, choose one or two outfits with prints in the colors chosen, then accessorize. I like to stay away from stripes or clothing that is too busy with tons of color, pictures and logos!
I provide dress options, styling direct links to family outfits and inspiration. Wardrobe is very important in the final look of your gallery - I always ask clients to send me photos of what they currently have or want so that we can build on it for each member of the family.
01. What do we wear for our Atlanta baby photography session?
It takes about 1.5-2 weeks for your gallery to be ready for viewing. I will reach out about a week after your session to set up a day and time that would be best for your viewing/ordering appointment. During the appointment, you will view your full gallery and be able to see and choose your heirloom pieces.
02. HOW LONG AFTER THE SESSION WILL MY GALLERY BE READY?
The Petite Collection is only 30 minutes, it is basically a mini session done in home or on location. I do not recommend these for a newborn session! They are perfect for quick heirloom photo, grandparent updates, little milestones, or a Holiday card photo. Some parents may think that the Signature Collection, 1.5 hours is too long for their baby, but trust me, it is not! It gives you and your little ones time to get comfortable so that we can get genuine emotion and smiles in your photographs without rushing. It also gives us time to feed and calm baby to sleep for poses. If you choose the Petite, you will be able to view your full gallery and choose 10 images to download. It is $125 to upgrade to your full gallery download.
03. IS THE PETITE SESSION ENOUGH TIME? HOW MUCH IS THE GALLERY UPGRADE?
Yes, you are able to save, share and print for personal use.
There is a huge difference in your photos when you print with a professional lab vs companies online. All of our prints are on Museum Etching - Archival heavy paper and will not fade or yellow over the years. Our album quality is is incomparable, so I would 100% recommend printing with us.
04 can i print the photos on my own?
Yes! We work with the absolute best and most talented hair and make up artists in Atlanta. Although it is not a necessity, I would definitely recommend hiring an HMUA before our session. She will come to your home about an hour before the session to begin. Adding that pop that you need for photos is really noticeable. If you love doing your own hair and make up, then that works great as well, just make sure to add in a little more than your usually daytime routine.
05. DO YOU OFFER HAIR/MAKEUP RECOMMENDATIONS?
Both options are beautiful and have their own benefits. It is truly up to you.
In home sessions - you will have heirloom memories of your baby's first home, nursery, and true locations of the moments that are so special to you in these first few weeks. If your home does not have much natural light and you fear that it will be too dark, then you can also consider a studio session.
As an Atlanta baby photographer, I use a few different studios in Atlanta, Woodstock, and Cumming, depending on the most convenient location for you. Each studio has beautiful natural light, home style decor, and a bright blank canvas for us to create photographs that are fully focused on your family.
