atlanta newborn photographer; welcome baby girl!
I first met and began documenting this family's journey during their pregnancy. They hired me to capture the Whole Journey, and I was honored to be their birth doula and birth photographer, and had wonderful maternity and newborn sessions with them. I look forward to watching their beautiful girls grow up!
I like newborn photography that is authentic, and includes the whole family. We are celebrating the new baby as the newest member of the family, and I like capturing the connections that are being made. I call this type of photography "lifestyle" photography--it's somewhere between posed portraiture and photo-journalism, and does not include weird fake poses.
When I started doing newborn photography, I thought I had to do what is so common these days--babies in baskets and propped on their hands. I've realized that those pictures all look the same, they don't show anything about a family, and they are just plain cheesy. I like pictures that peek into a family's everyday life, and show some personality. I think of that baby looking at these photos as an adult, and I'm pretty sure that a picture that includes the family and house will feel more special. That's how I have ended up at lifestyle newborn photography.
To schedule a newborn session, it's best to contact me during your pregnancy. That way I can guarantee a spot on my calendar, and we can plan for our session before you have a new baby at home, and much more important things keeping you busy.
I like to schedule newborn sessions for when your baby is around two weeks old. The session usually lasts 2-3 hours and takes place in your home. Newborn sessions start at $600 and include digital images. Please contact me for a full pricing menu!
