In our family, we love taking photos twice a year – once in the spring and again during the fall. It's amazing to see how much my babies have grown since the last session. Being a mom myself, I know there's a lot on your plate, so I want to make things as easy as possible for you.
I'll be there to help you choose outfits that match beautifully. I also like sending out a questionnaire to learn more about your family – it helps me capture your unique bond. And because I've spent so much time with children, I have loads of fun games, questions, and tricks up my sleeve to help your little ones feel comfortable and forget about the camera. As your Atlanta family photographer, my goal is to capture those genuine, heartfelt smiles in the photos – just leave the directing part to me!
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!
step 01 of 06
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!
step 02 of 06
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.
Creating your Heirlooms

05. Do you offer hair/Makeup recommendations?

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 FAMILY 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 FAMILY 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. As your Atlanta family photographer, I do not recommend these for a newborn session or extended family sessions! 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?
They feel your energy a lot of the time. Try to relax and think about this time as just playing and cuddling with your family Let them play, trust me in getting the photos that we want with games and convos, and biggest part is…. SMILE. Smile, laugh, and cuddle. This will get your children to have fun and do what we need. Getting upset or scolding does not work and gets fake smiles or worse, tears. I'm all for a treat at the end, snacks in between, and tons positive feelings!
