Atlanta Newborn Photographer- Baby Lucca


Mara contacted our photography studio, located in Sandy Springs, in February for a newborn photo session for her son Lucca who was due at the beginning of March. She was referred to me by a common friend who lives in Houston.


We discussed my work process, my studio, posed style, and whether to include family and sibling on the pictures (which she wanted to do and I absolutely love to do). Lucca will be welcome by big brother Nicolas, and I know how important it is for parents to have pictures of all your children. Baby Lucca was born at the beginning of March, just when the World Health Organization declared Covid-19 a pandemia. We discussed safety and moved forward to photograph baby. This was the last session I did before I closed the studio for 9 weeks.


Mara requested blues and neutrals for the photo session. They arrived at the studio in the morning, and we immediately started with sibling pictures. Nicolas, a super proud big brother, was amazing considering he is only 23 months old. Toddlers can be unpredictable, but we work hard to make sure they feel comfortable and safe in front of the camera. Nicolas just adores Lucca, and we were able to get some sweet pictures together.

After sibling pictures, I always follow with family pictures. I know the short attention span of a toddler, so we need to move fast. I love how beautiful these photos turned out of this new gorgeous family of four.

Once we were done with family pictures, dad took Nicolas to a father- son time together, so we could concentrate on photographing baby Lucca alone. He was a wonderful baby model. Little did I know that it would be nine long weeks before I could cuddle a baby again!

Please contact me to document these fleeting moments and have them last forever in these beautiful newborn photos. Remember the ideal time to book is a few months before baby is born to assure availability. However, if you already had a baby, contact me for last minute availability. We love to photograph baby between 7-14 days after birth, but we can obtain beautiful “newborn” photos up to 6 weeks.
