Atlanta Newborn Photographer- Baby Madison

Welcome to the world baby Madison

Maddie came to our studios located in Dunwoody/Sandy Springs for her newborn photography session. I could tell right away that she is a natural in front of the camera, just like her mom, and this will be the first of many photo shoots for her.

Nontobeko contacted me in her third trimester, and we discussed her vision and ideas for the baby photos. She shared pictures of the nursery to help me customize the perfect set-ups for baby. We decided to use pinks, blush, and creams colors to achieve her vision.

Mom let me know of baby’s birth while in the hospital, which is what I typically ask moms to do, so we can confirm the dates of the photos. Maddie was 8 days new on the day of her newborn photos which is within the ideal age range for baby photos.

Maddie “slept like a baby” during her photos and we were able to capture some beautiful curled, sleepy poses as well as some great open eye pictures.





I love to use a bowl and a bucket as some of my favorite props to use with baby, and Maddie agreed with my selection as she found them very comfortable.



I like to do a couple of digital background pictures, and this one was chosen specially for baby, don' you think she looks perfect in a heart of roses?


Maddie’s teenage sisters were visiting from New Jersey and it was wonderful to have them in the pictures. This baby girl is so lucky to have so many great girls to look up to and be her role model


During the photo shoot, parents shared with me their story on how they met and you could hear the love in their voices. Nontobeko is from South Africa and that’s where Jeff found his queen.


Grandma was here visiting, and I was excited to capture the three generations of beautiful women, no doubt an image that baby Maddie will share forever, what would I give to have a picture with my mom and grandmother.

It was such an honor for me to meet and photograph this beautiful family. Sometimes, right after a baby, there’s lack of sleep, anxiety about raising a child, and sometimes tension in the family; however, this family seemed so happy, relaxed and proud to have this perfect baby girl join their family. I tried to capture the essence of their love in these images.

Please contact me to document this fleeting moments and have them last forever in these images that will be cherished forever. Remember the ideal time to book is a few months before baby is born.
