Newborn, Maternity and Family Photography by Michelle Haley
I have been photographing Atlanta’s loveliest families since 2005 – which makes me one of the most experienced family photographers in the metro area. My specialty lies in maternity and newborn photography; however, I also love capturing milestone baby sessions and families. My goal is to provide you with timeless portraits to preserve today’s memories with the highest level of technical expertise and product quality. I take a great deal of time and care with each session, and I guarantee you’ll be delighted with your finished products. Finished products include mounted portraits in both color and black and white, framed prints, fine art gallery wrapped canvas, a la carte frames including the highly popular Organic Bloom frames, gallery mounts, press printed greeting cards, birth announcements, and custom designed flush mount photographic and press storybooks with leather or metallic covers.
After your photography session you will visit the studio again for your viewing and ordering session. I will help you narrow down your favorite images and provide a simple list of collection options that will maximize your portrait investment. You will have the opportunity to see and touch the wide range of finished product options to preserve your portrait memories.

Your baby is changing and growing every day, so make sure you capture the little moments each day and bring your baby to Michelle Haley Photography for the large milestones. These sessions are about preserving the big moments in baby’s development. Most milestone sessions will take place at three months (lifting head up, eye contact, smiles), six months (sitting unassisted, engaging with smiles and giggles), nine months (pulling up to standing position) and one year (crawling/walking). One year sessions are welcome to bring a small cake into the studio to finish their portrait sitting with a cake smash – it’s messy but fun and the images are priceless! If you want a particular color scheme or have specific outfits in mind, communicate these to Michelle before your session and she will set up the perfect backdrop and props to accompany your vision.
