Newborn Photography | Atlanta, GA | Welcome, Linnie!
I first met this family when we celebrated big sister's 1st birthday, and we finished the session with quite a surprise to Dad--a pregnancy announcement! That was a lot of fun, so I was so excited to meet the newest member of their family.
My newborn photo sessions are "lifestyle" sessions. Lifestyle photography focuses on connections, and is a peek into your life in this moment. I don't pose you, but guide you into a moment that makes a beautiful photograph. I think that when you look back at photographs in years to come, it is the authentic ones of you and your family that will be the most special. Instead of your sweet little newborn baby floating on a cloud of fluff, or arranged in a silly (albeit cute) pose, you will remember how it felt to hold her, and talk to her. You will remember the way her big sister gave her gentle kisses on the head.
Authentic newborn photography takes you back to that moment in your life that goes by so quickly, and usually in a blur. I love the saying, 'the days are long and the years are short.' It's so true. Newborns change quickly, so I like to schedule newborn sessions for when your baby is between 2-3 weeks old. Because we are not going to do any crazy posing, we don't need to rush to schedule our session in the first week of your baby's life. In fact, I love being able to capture your baby awake, too!
I prefer to be in touch with you during pregnancy, and get a feel for what you are looking for. That way we can both prepare for our session while you have a little more time on your hands. A deposit is due at that point, and then when your baby arrives you can reach out to schedule a session within a couple of weeks.
