HI friends,

I am down to just a few openings for newborn photography sessions through the end of the year. Please call early for your maternity photography sessions as well, as they include a newborn session.

My family fall portrait sessions are now fully booked. I will offer mini sessions again in the Spring.


I can’t leave you without sharing some recent visitors to the studio:

Atlanta newborn photography- what I love best (hint: all of it).

Hi friends,

As I get closer to a milestone of ten years in business photographing some of Atlanta’s loveliest families, I have pondered what I love best about this job. To be truthful, maternity and newborn photography is not what I set out to specialize in, but my niche inevitably found me. I love meeting new families who are just on the cusp of adding a first baby, or a new sibling. It’s such a precious time for a family – and a tremendous honor to me to be privileged enough to capture those very first photographs.

I often tell clients that I don’t even have maternity photographs from my own pregnancies. I have a couple of snapshots from my first, but nothing like the studio portraits that I capture for my clients. That was a time before Demi Moore showed the world how beautiful a pregnant woman truly is – with her nude cover on Vanity Fair magazine in 1991. I was awestruck by that image – and inspired.  When I opened my studio I had no idea that over 90% of my work would be shooting maternity and newborn portraits. Today, I’m so thankful that my clients helped me to see where my strongest work lies, and how much I love working with them to tell their story.

Most of my clients come back to see me for their baby’s six month or one year portraits. What a treat it is to see those sweet newborn faces blossoming into little people! I love the cake smash sessions – where little fists grasp their first taste of pure sugar – and some shriek with delight while others pull a sad face and shake their hands to get rid of the “sticky stuff”. And each fall I have the opportunity to see families for their annual holiday portraits.

This career is a blessing I don’t take lightly. Thank you for giving me the outlet to do what my creative side loves most.

Maternity and Newborn Photography Simplicity Sessions!

Announcing maternity and newborn photography Simplicity sessions!

Many of you have asked about our popular Simplicity Sessions for maternity and newborn photography. These all-inclusive sessions are perfect for the do-it-yourselfers who just want a beautiful set of digital files with printing rights. Digital files are delivered in both color and black and white via download within two weeks of your session. Simplicty sessions are also perfect for family and baby portraits. There are a limited number of Simplicity sessions available each month, so please make sure you plan ahead. For more information, please email the studio at or call 678-234-1988.

FAQ’s about Simplicity Sessions

1. Are these full sessions or a mini session? Simplicity Sessions are a bit briefer than our regular sessions. However, we allow plenty of time to capture a beautiful variety of portraits. Newborns receive two hours of studio time. Maternity, family and children sessions receive one hour studio time. Please be on time for your Simplicity to ensure we are able to fit in a complete session.

2. Is there a session fee for Simplicity Sessions? There is no session fee for these sessions. The all-inclusive pricing covers my time with you and your family in the studio, complete editing and retouching of the images, and setup of your download links.

3. How many images are included and what is a “digital file”?  You will receive 20 original digital files in both color and black and white from your Simplicity Session for newborns, families and babies. The maternity Simplicity Session includes 12 original digital files in both color and black and white. One “digital file” is a single image/pose cropped to a 5×7 crop ratio at 300ppi.

4. Will I be able to select my favorites? The Simplicity Session will include my selections of the “best” of each pose taken. You will receive the complete number of files from your session, so there is no need to eliminate pictures through a selection process.

5. How do I print my pictures? I will give you a consumer lab recommendation as well as a photographer’s print release for you to print your pictures. You will need to be proficient with using jpegs and with basic ordering software.

6. Can I still order products from you after my session? Absolutely! I encourage clients to use me for larger wall portraits as well as storybooks, cards and other products. Simplicity clients receive 30% off a la carte pricing.

7. Do you have props and different backdrops available for these sessions? All of the props and backdrop options that are available for regular sessions are also available for Simplicity clients.

8. Do you offer on-location Simplicity sessions? Due to time constraints, Simplicity sessions are only available in the studio. Most availability will be during the week. From time to time weekend Simplicity sessions are open as well.

I hope that answers some of your questions….please don’t hesitate to contact me with additional questions or availability!
