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.
