The Experience



Maternity sessions are held in studio or at an outdoor location (weather permitting). It is best to book your Maternity Session as soon as possible. Maternity sessions are best photographed at 6 - 8 months. During this time, mommy's belly is nice and round and she is not too tired.


Newborn sessions are held in studio in Smyrna, GA. Sessions are booked during your second trimester, months 4, 5, or 6. The BEST time for newborn's photos is 5 - 14 days after the baby's birth. During this time, babies are still extremely sleepy and are easier to achieve those adorable poses. If your baby arrives early, no problem! I only hold a certain number of newborn sessions each month in case baby comes early, late or we have to reschedule. There is no need to bring anything unless it is sentimental. I am a full-service newborn studio meaning I provide everything. I have a growing collection of wraps, bonnets, headbands, and props for you to choose from!


Milestone sessions are held in studio for 3 months, 6 months and one year old. 3 Month old sessions are mainly photographed with baby lying on their back and belly. 6 month sessions are photographed when baby is fully able to sit up on their own. One year old sessions are photographed to celebrate their first year of life! Cake smash sessions are a great way to show off your little one's personality with a cute simple theme. It is BEST to plan One year old sessions 2 months in advance for planning. 


Family sessions are held either in the studio or at an outdoor location (weather permitting).
