Baby Ian | Atlanta Baby Photographer

Smyrna Baby Ian arrived a little ahead of schedule so I had the opportunity to photograph him two times!  The first time was for his newborn baby portrait session and the second time was just a couple of days after Thanksgiving for an extended family portrait session.  You would not believe what a poser he is for being such a brand new little guy.  When we got to the part of the family session where I was photographing him with his Grandparents, Aunts and Uncle he would look right at the camera and pose, I don’t think I’ve had a newborn ever do that every. single. time.  I think he has a future as a model!

Baby Ian is such a blessing to his family as they have waited for him a long time, what a wonderful early Christmas present he is.  I fell in love with his family and even his sweet dog Tanner.  Tanner would come stand by me and nuzzle his head on my hand and wait for me to pet him. Then he would put his head on my leg if I was sitting down.  I’m pretty sure Tanner is one of my most favorite client furry friends I’ve ever met.  Thank you so much to Ian’s Mommy & Daddy for choosing me to document your lives during this very special time.

Here are a few images to share from Ian’s newborn session

Did I mention I fell in love with this family?  I sure did.

I couldn’t resist showing you Ian’s super cute cousins, this one was from the family portrait session a few days after Thanksgiving, aren’t they cutie pies?  They liked me because I had Smarties for them!

Baby Joshua: 10 Days Old

Yesterday I traveled to Buckhead here in Atlanta to photograph a super cute 10 day old baby boy Joshua.  I think Atlanta is going through a boom of baby boys, he is my fourth newborn boy in a row and I have another one in just a couple of weeks who is scheduled to arrive.

I’ve been busy with commercial work so I have several portrait clients that I need to share with all of you, some very sweet babies and kids here in Atlanta!  I’ll be in Los Angeles in November seeing some of my wonderful portrait clients there for fall portraits.

Here’s a few sneak peek shots for Joshua’s family and friends.  Thank you to his wonderful parents for welcoming to your home and for being so kind.  PS – the cheesecake was FANTASTIC!!!!!!

He’s such a cutie and looks like he’s thinking hard about something important. A future world leader? Great thinker? How blessed they are that you took time from your commercial work to photograph this sweet new baby. I just love the textures against his soft new skin. Lovely work, Angela.

Ava Joy: 7 Days Old | Atlanta Newborn Baby Photographer

This morning I traveled to Smyrna to photograph brand new baby Ava Joy.  She decided to arrive almost two weeks early and I told her Mommy that I think she just didn’t want to miss out on all of the 4th of July festivities.  One of the things that I try to tell everyone is just how important it is to try and have your newborn photographed before the two week mark.  It makes so much difference in how the session flows.  At the one week mark they are still very sleepy, they are easy to pose and their baby acne has typically not shown up yet.  There is no such thing as too early for a newborn portrait session, I’ve photographed several babies who were only 2-3 days old.

Miss Ava was so perfect and sweet for us this morning, I could have just sat and held her all day.  She had so much hair, oh how she melted my heart.  Congratulations to the M family, it was so wonderful to spend the morning with you!

Here are a few to share from our morning together…

Emma Grace: 7 days old | Marrietta Newborn Baby Photographer

I am *very* behind on my blogging and I have so many beautiful babies, children & families to share with you so I promise to be better with updating my blog.  My little ones are out of school so they keep me pretty busy in addition to my wonderful clients here in Atlanta.

Yesterday I went to Marietta to photograph a beautiful one week old baby girl named Emma Grace.  I did her Mommy’s maternity portraits a few months ago so it was wonderful to see her again but this time as a Mother.  Emma was so cooperative and sometimes she would even pose herself.  Her Mom, Dad & Grandma were smiling so big and beaming with pride and already have so much love for their brand new baby girl.  Here are a few portraits from our session yesterday.  Welcome to the world Emma!

Kimberly Hill - April 9, 2009 - 6:33 am

I look at a lot of photography blogs and I’m pretty jaded. When that first image loaded I said “awww…” out loud. You are SOOO talented, Angela. The second image is absolutely adorable. Her soft creamy skin against that riot of texture and color is masterful. Something a true professional with an artist’s eye can pull off. Mom was brilliant to commission you to commemorate this fleeting moment in her daugher’s life.

allie - April 9, 2009 - 7:38 am

Angela… that first one is breathtaking. Both are beautiful but my goodness… something about it is so moving!

Jeanette - April 9, 2009 - 10:52 am
