Newborn Photography Atlanta

One of the most wonderful ways to celebrate the start of a new chapter in your life is with a newborn photography session. We truly believe that it is so important to document those fleeting moments when your baby is so little - they grow up so fast. It will help you remember their wrinkled skin, their soft skin, their little toes, and their unique personality that shines through even from the beginning.


When to schedule newborn photos?

It’s best to schedule your newborn photos during your second or third trimester to ensure availability. After your baby arrives, you will contact us to confirm the exact date for your baby's photos in our Atlanta photo studio. It is best to photograph the baby between 7-14 days after birth when they still sleep much of the time and they curl so nicely for the poses.  Although this is an ideal time, sometimes life happens or baby comes ahead of time and we need to wait a little longer.  That is also OK!

Mariela is a true pleasure to work with! She is pleasant, professional, and most importantly, patient! She was so gentle with our daughter (who I think was maybe 9 days old at the time) and was meticulous and precise in her work. - Ava J.

Are the newborn props and outfits provided? 

We love photographing babies in neutral, simple colors with delicate accessories.  We usually ask mom what color palettes she wants to use for the session and we design the sets based on those desired colors.  We provide all outfits and props for baby but we are always happy to incorporate pieces that have sentimental value to the family.


We also love to incorporate digital backgrounds in our images; photos that we know are not realistic (e.g., baby on top of the earth, baby sleeping on the moon, baby on an elephant, etc.) but look adorable.  We have numerous backgrounds to choose from.

How long does the newborn photo session take?

The newborn photo session usually takes 3-4 hours, as we want to allow plenty of time for cuddling, feeding and keeping baby relaxed and sleepy. Our home studio is located in Sandy Springs/Dunwoody area and we serve the metro Atlanta area including Roswell, Alpharetta, Marietta, Norcross, and South Atlanta.

When can we see the newborn pictures?

A few days after your session, we will meet in person or online to review your photos so that you can choose the pictures you love.  You would receive your beautiful images 1-2 weeks after you place your order.  I offer beautiful heirloom albums which come from Italy (my most popular product for newborns), as well as prints, canvases, and digital images.

Mariela Duval Photography is one of the best infant/family photographers in the Atlanta area. Mariela is incredibly talented and professional. She has done my maternity photos, new born photos, and one-year photos. The moments she has captured are more beautiful than anything I could have imagined. These are photos we will be able to pass on to our family one day as they are classic and timeless in both quality and design. Her ability to style and work with infants is impeccable. She has an "eye" for staging and an incredible amount of patience in order to get magnificent shots.- Lacey M
