It always seems to happen that I get a TON of inquiries for Fresh 48 Hospital Newborn Sessions the same exact week we take our annual family vacation to New Smyrna Beach! When Lauren contacted me to book a hospital session for the arrival of her sweet girl, due smack dab in the middle of […]

Oooooh baby Betsy, I couldn’t get enough of this sweet girl! She came to see me at one week old, and slept like a dream for our entire session. Best part is Betsy actually lives next door, so I REALLY get a front seat ticket to watch this little lady grow! Welcome to the world, […]

I will always be so fascinated by sweet sisters! Even though I don’t have one myself, I’ve always thought that having a sister as a little girl would be such a special relationship, and I’d be lying if I said I didn’t secretly wish I had a sister of my own! Big sister Elsie Mae […]

Sweet baby Delsie! This little girl surprised us all by arriving a full month early! I couldn’t get over her full cheeks and head of gorgeous black hair when I met her at Patewood Memorial! It was such an honor to meet this sweet family for their maternity session about a month before baby girl […]

I photographed baby William at just 24 hours old in the hospital, and 8 days later he came to the studio to see me for some more formal newborn portraits. I will always be drawn to a pure and simple style of photography for newborns. As a client once said “God makes them perfect on […]

At just 18 months apart, I hope Evie and William will grow up being the sweetest of […]

Sweet little Hattie was so tiny and perfect, and I have been dying to meet her ever since we photographed her maternity session earlier this year! These three are so sweet, and mama and daddy are so proud of their […]

Welcome to the world, sweet baby Davis! This little guy was just shy of 3 weeks old for our session, and was wide away for most of it! I love when that happens and I can get some great shots of these little ones with their eyes open – a rare sight at times for […]

Oh, sweet Aviva! This baby girl made my job SO EASY! I’m often asked how long sessions take, and the truth is – it’s really unpredictable! I have photos that I love to get at every single session, and I try to have an efficient workflow in place so that I don’t take up a […]

I entered a sea of PINK one afternoon in late April when I arrived at Northside Hospital in Atlanta for baby Kaitlin’s Fresh 48. Kaitlin makes baby girl #4 for this beautiful family! Her and her sisters were all gender surprises, and it’s safe to say – this family makes beautiful baby girls! Kaitlin has […]

This sweet family invited me all the way to Charlotte to photograph their lifestyle newborn session in their home! I love being invited to nearby cities, especially for sweet little babies like Wells! He was the tiniest little guy, weight just 4lbs 15oz at birth! He was closer to 6lbs by the time we had […]
