I believe in albums that you can hold in your hands and lovingly turn the pages. 

Pull your baby onto your lap and flip thru the pages of an album filled with pictures of you with your newborn.  Snuggling on the couch with your child looking thru a  beautifully hand bound album  is such a cherished time in our home.  I love showing my babies photos of them from previous years.  We laugh and I tell them about silly things they said or did.   Your photographs are truly works of art and deserve to be treated as such. They deserve to be passed down to your little ones.  They need  more than a fleeting Facebook post! Technology is temporary and easily degrades.  Our wedding video is already going blank from nothing more than time. Don’t let this happen to your precious portraits.  Urban Grace Photography’s matted prints are light-fast for 200+years and printed on museum quality paper.

I want you to leave a session with more than a disc of images that just get tossed into a junk drawer.  I want you to have tangible art that graces your walls for generations.  A matted and framed work of art for your husband glance at on his desk at work.  And, albums that beg to be picked up on the coffee table.

  I have searched out many of the highest quality and handcrafted items to display your art work.

Here are a few of the new products Urban Grace is thrilled to be offering.

She is simply stunning, and this is her 5th baby!  Yes, it is so special to document this time in your life. Not only for you but for your future baby. You can flip thru the pages of an album and show him or her just how adored they were, even before you met your newborn!   You might feel like hiding your belly, but trust me, this is a time to celebrate and you will only look back and think “why didn’t I have pictures of me pregnant!”  This is just a glimpse of what we captured during Lauren’s Maternity session.

3 Tips for a Beautiful Maternity Photos

 

As she walked through this field located in Buford, GA, I couldn’t help but wonder how she looked so amazingly beautiful with her 5th child!  “Did I just say 5th baby?” Yes, I did!  And, she looks wonderful.  I know every Momma wants to look and feel beautiful when they have Maternity Photos taken and there are several things I do to make sure each and every Mom looks fabulous during her Maternity Session!

” This is what it was like when Mommy was pregnant with you! See how much we loved you even before you were born!”

Maternity Photographer in Atlanta Field Session

#1 Follow Your Photographer’s Wardrobe Recommendations-

I personally offer styling for all of my clients. What you wear makes a huge difference in the look and feel of your photos.  I have photographed many, many maternity sessions and know what looks good and what doesn’t. There is nothing more unflattering that wearing something that makes you feel huge and doesn’t define your beautiful pregnant belly well.    Make sure you and your Husband’s clothes coordinate, but don’t match.  You also want your clothing to make sense for the location where you are having your photography session.  For example, Husbands wouldn’t want to wear a suit if you are going to the fair in Atlanta.  All of the elements of design come together in clothing to develop a cohesive look.  When you are wearing something that makes you look beautiful you will feel that way too!

#2 Have your Hair and Makeup Professionally done-

Having your hair and makeup professionally done is something that not only makes you look your best, but is also a wonderful treat at this stage in your pregnancy. And, after your newborn arrives, who knows how long it will be before you have time to properly do your hair and apply makeup!!!  Professional makeup artists also know what makeup types photograph most beautifully and will stay put during our session together. There are many wonderful make-up and hairstylist in the Atlanta area.  I personally work with several and can offer give you a referral for a stylist that can meet you at your home or on location.

#3 32-36 Weeks is the Best time for Maternity Photography-

While you might think earlier is better it really is best to wait for your photography session until you have a full belly.  All Moms experience that stage where you don’t look like your normal size, but you don’t look pregnant yet either. Personally, I hate that stage and can’t wait till I actually have that cute pregnant belly really showing!  And, you also don’t want to wait too long. Swelling starts to occur toward the end of pregnancy and moving becomes increasingly difficult. And, most important is that you might deliver early and miss the chance to capture how it feels to carry this wonderful blessing of a baby! And, once you deliver you can never photograph your belly again to show that tiny newborn one day.

I can’t wait to show my children ” This is what it was like when Mommy was pregnant with you! See how much we loved you even before you were born!”

If you would like to begin planning your Maternity or Newborn session just fill out this contact form.

Beautiful heirloom prints, tangible albums, and framed artwork on your walls leaves a legacy for your children and you will pause each time you pass to reflect of  God’s gifts each day:)

This sweet little newborn was just 9 days old when I photographed him.  He is the second baby for this sweet family and I am very happy that I got to spend some time with them at their home.   I am looking forward to several upcoming newborn photography sessions in my home studio in Buford, GA.  I am thrilled to offer sessions in my new studio in the Hamilton Mill area.  Very close to Cumming, GA.

Isn’t this Momma and her baby just gorgeous!  I love the way she is looking at her tiny newborn.   And, that light!!!!  There is nothing more fabulous that a gorgeous light filled space!  Can’t you just picture this image in a gorgeous heirloom frame gracing the walls of their home to serve as a visual reminder of how great God is?!

The crying started at 10:00 pm when she was 2 days old and we had just gotten home from the hospital and it didn’t stop till my newborn was one year old!   I have to say that that first year was torture and blurred as I struggled to get thru my days with terrible sleep deprivation.  I have to say that God certainly showed Himself mighty during that time.  I tried everything to get her to sleep and stop crying and finally have some tips that I think could help if you have a baby that is described as colicky!

#1-  Swaddle

Your sweet newborn has been tightly cuddled in your womb for 9 (well 10 months:) so to be in a looser environment is not ideal.  Yes, they may struggle for a second or two, but will quickly give in and settle.  Being tightly swaddled also prevents the startle reflex which often wakens newborn babies.

#2- Nurse

Feed your baby! I know that schedules are great, but if your baby is hungry and crying feed him or her.  Once they are past the colicky stage you can get back to that schedule, I promise. Then use a pacifier.  I have 4 babies myself and none have had nipple confusion so far.

#3- Eliminate Dairy and Wheat from your diet

I found this truly made a difference in how much gas and reflux my babies had.  As well as eliminating any gas forming vegetables or grains, for example, oat groats, celery, cabbage, broccoli.  This is very hard to do, but in my opinion worth it for a sleeping baby.

#4- Reflux

Talk to your doctor about reflux. I really believe some of my first baby’s colic issues were from undiagnosed reflux. And, if this is the case you could really save your baby some painful issues.

#5- Relax

With my first baby I was so nervous and careful about everything. I was also unwilling to let anyone else do anything for my baby.  I know she could tell I was nervous and this did nothing to calm her. So try as hard as it may seem to relax. Everything will be okay!  You will feel much better after a few hours of holding a calm baby.

 

As with any advice, this is just my experience and please talk everything over with your newborn baby’s doctor and keep them informed of all of your newborn’s health issues.   I would love to hear any tips you have as well on helping your newborn sleep well:)

I love our new home in the Hamilton Mill area of Buford, Georgia.  I am very close to Chateau Elan in Braselton and not far from Dacula, Georgia. I have a beautiful natural light space that works so well for newborns and maternity photography.   I also have a few lovely sun filled fields that are simply wonderful for family photos.

If you have fallen in love with my style of natural newborn photography I would love to begin planning your session.  Or, if you want family photography that focuses on the connection between you and the ones you love most, I am the photographer for you.

I am not the photographer to pose your newborn in a elephant ear hat and put a fluffy tutu on her.  I am the photographer that will focus on how naturally beautiful your newborn is simply by photographing the love and connection you share with your sweet new baby.

I offer only the most timeless works of art that will last for generations. You will not look back in ten years and wonder “what was I thinking?”  In ten years as you pause in your hallway to gaze at a photograph of your ten year old as a newborn you will simply be filled with loving awe of the freshness and exquisite perfection of your child.  As the memories come flooding back by that photograph of your tiny newborn you can’t believe has grown so quickly.  If that is what you want, I am that photographer.

I am not the photographer to pose you and tell you to smile.  I am not the photographer to get everyone looking and smiling at the camera.   I am not the photographer to stuff your baby in 10 different buckets with huge bows.  I am not the photographer to photograph you with distracting props and chalkboard signs.

If you want to remember how your sweet 6 year old boy could never get enough of being in his Momma’s arms, I am that photographer.   If you want to hold on to your daughter’s sweet smile as she holds her father’s hand and smiles up at her hero, I am that photographer.   If you want to capture the connection and emotions you feel as you hold your newborn baby for the first time, I am that photographer.   I am the photographer who reminds you of God’s most wonderful miracle of  feeling your unborn child stir inside of you. I am that photographer.

Maybe it is a session to remind your children of the fierce love and protection you feel for them. To remind them of the God gift and blessings they are. Maybe it is a session to show your unborn baby that they were loved from the minute you found out you were expecting. I am that photographer.

The beautiful simplicity of a newborn baby. So beautiful and pure. Nothing should distract from the freshness of this tiny gift.

It is beautiful to photograph a newborn without distracting elements and props. Pure and simple – your baby! This newborn session was photographed in natural light using simple wraps and nothing but a peacefully sleeping baby. I love sessions like these. Photographing your newborn baby in your arms and cuddled up next to your chest is exactly where they should be.   I can’t wait to see these photographs on tangible prints. Fine art paper is the only way to do these images justice.  I know lingering for a moment to look at these pictures on the walls will bring years of joy to families’ hearts.

This sweet family was a joy to photography and I have to share more from their newborn photography session. They wanted and in home lifestyle session at their home in East Cobb just outside of Atlanta, GA, and I just love doing these.  It is special to photograph a newborn baby in their own home. Especially, if it is beautifully decorated and has lots of light like this home did:) I found myself drooling just a bit over the decor!  I love  that their 16 month old son was more comfortable in his own home.  We were also able to capture the whole family and newborn baby in the nursery.  I do love my wide angle lens that allows me to capture the entire scene!
