Baby Griffin- Atlanta Newborn Photographer

Welcome to the world baby Griffin, I am sure a future star soccer player! You are the perfect addition to this sweet family! We photographed Griffin in our studios located in Dunwoody/Sandy Springs for his newborn photography session. As an Atlanta United fan, I was thrilled to have our amazing goalie Brad Guzan's family in front of my lens. We discussed vision for the photos, and they wanted a regular newborn workflow but to include a photo of baby on top of soccer ball being held by dad. We decided to use grays, blues, creams for baby’s first photos.




Mom brought this beautiful cross and wanted to incorporate it in an image- she had her two other children photographed with this cross

Griffin was 19 days old on the day of his newborn photos. Because of dad’s busy schedule with Atlanta United games, we photographed baby first and two days later, the rest of the family came to our home studio for their photos.



It was such an honor for me to meet and photograph the Guzan family. I was thrilled, but a little nervous, to have our famous Atlanta United goalie at my studio, but Brad's easy going personality and love for his wife and children made me feel comfortable right away, and he was amazing at getting smiles from Aiden and Emerson. I tried to capture the essence of this family in these images.


During the photo shoot, parents shared with me that they are high school sweethearts and baby was born on their 17th anniversary of their first date, how sweet is that!


Brad was such a trooper going along with this image which we photograph with and without globes, I absolutely love it! How can you not become a soccer player when you are placed on a ball since you are a baby plus is in his blood!

Absolutely adored photographing this amazing family and loved the energy between them,

Please contact me to document these fleeting moments and help you remember all the tiny detail, as they change so fast. Remember the ideal time to book your newborn photos is a few months before baby is born.
