(My site is updating and looks crazy right now!  But, this wedding would look beautiful anywhere!!)

Chelsea and Joshua had the wedding that dreams are made of this last Saturday!  They celebrated at the Marriott Buckhead in Atlanta, Georgia.  I was thrilled to capture their beautiful wedding day.  As a wedding photographe,r I get to photography many weddings and this one was over the top!  Gorgeous flowers, fantastic DJ, yummy food, were just a few of the things that made it an amazing wedding day.  I could go on and on.  On top of all that, the Bride was as beautiful as she was sweet.  She had a great team and a wonderful family supporting her. I know she and Joshua will have a beautiful marriage. We had great weather and the only rain of the day happened during the ceremony. We were able to head outside for some fun downtown pictures, yay! Steve Brueck, the bride’s stepdad, runs a weather facebook page.  Make sure to check him out to keep up to date on all the weather happenings in Georgia!!  This is just a small sneek peek of the wedding day.  More to  come.  Thank you to my wonderful second photographer who captured so many great shots during the evening Adrea Thomas Photography. She is such a fun person and I am so glad we met!  So go check her out!

I have been a newborn photographer for quite awhile and when I first started out…. well let’s say I had a lot of things to learn!  I have made many mistakes regarding styling a newborn session and know what works and what doesn’t.  EVEN naturally styled newborns takes experience to get an attractive photo of a newborn.  I did everything just like I was told with my first newborn baby-  my own.  I had imagined a perfectly happy baby and lovely light and skin.  Reality?  I had images of a screaming newborn, red faced and angry!  Eekk!  Not what I wanted at all.  So I thought I would share my best tips for getting the newborn images you dream of.

Atlanta newborn photographerAtlanta newborn photographer

 

Feed your baby!

The more you feed your baby the better! A hungry baby is not a happy newborn.   Newborn babies need to nurse frequently and for a long time.  You can always get back on a schedule after the session.  Make sure your photographer is willing to stop the session and let  your newborn baby nurse for as long as needed.  A milk coma is a good thing!  If this is your first newborn, you will most likely be surprised at how often babies do need to nurse.

 

The room will be warm!

My studio is heated to the perfect temperature for newborns.  Newborns get cold so easily.  Especially if they are naked at all for the photo session.  I am hot by nature and usually after a baby new mom’s hormones are creating lots of hot flashes!  So remember to dress in layers for the session and that way you will be comfortable during your newborns photo session.  The best thing to do is dress comfortable and change into your outfit to be photographed in only when it is time for you to be in the picture.

 

Soft flowing Dresses, Light airy colors, and Coordinate Clothing!

I can’t stress enough how much clothing effects the look of your images!  Wear light and airy colors that are soft and feminine.  Think blush, cream, white, soft grey.  This will create a soft newborn image and look lovely against a newborn’s skin.  Lace and details add a great touch to dresses and blouses.  Light grey or white jeans work well also.  Try to avoid blue jeans.  New moms look wonderful in flowing dresses.  They hid any belly you might have after having  your baby.  I know that now matter how skinny you might be that there is still a bit of belly left at 6 days postpartum.  Bring back up tops or dresses just in case you get peed or pooped on! Light gray shirts with Khakis or Cream sweaters or shirts work great for guys.  Dressier is better. Try to avoid t-shirts and polos.  Button downs always look great!  Start shopping while you are pregnant for clothing for you, your husband, and any children you may have already!  This is a perfect dress and this blouse is fabulous with white jeans!

 

White Bedding!

White bedding is fabulous for newborn photos.  White bedding lightens up the whole room.  Light and airy photos don’t happen on dark bedding with dark walls.  It is such a treat to have new bedding after your newborn arrives. Have a relative put your new bedding on your bed so when you come home you have a gorgeous room waiting for you!   Here is the bedding we have and love!  I also have white bedding in my studio with white walls for the perfect photo setup.

 

Lavender Essential Oil!

This is a life changer! Not only for newborn photos, but for all the time at home.  There are so many ways to use Lavender essential oil.  You can diffuse it into the air for a calming effect.  You can also roll it onto your newborns feet. Make sure it is certified thereputic grade oil!  So important! You don’t want to introduce toxins to your newborn.  I diffuse this in my homeschool classroom constantly!  It has made such a difference in my children.  We roll it onto our feet before bed.  My little babies sleep so soundly.   Sign up for a doTerra essential oil wholesale account to get great pricing on quality oils.  The diffuser below functions wonderfully and I haven’t had any problems with it breaking like others I have used.

This beautiful Mom booked my Maternity and Newborn collection and it is so special to see a mom to be for her maternity photos and then again for her newborn.  I get to meet the little tiny baby that was in her belly just a few weeks before.  Look how tiny and sweet her little hands are in this picture!  She was a tiny little newborn baby and simple a doll during her newborn session.

 This is my very favorite and I love the organic and natural newborn baby , maternity, and family photography. My home studio is located just outside of Atlanta in the Buford, GA area close to Hamilton Mill and I-85.  I would love to hear from you if you are expecting a newborn and would like more information on maternity or newborn photography.

I have also been wanting to talk about some of my favorite baby items.  If you don’t know, I have four of my own sweet babies!  I have had lots of experience with baby equipment!  Stollers!  Some are great and some just give new moms headaches!  I love the one I currently have.  It is a Britax Stroller. I love it!  It folds up with one hand and is perfect for the mall or running.  I also have the infant carrier that clicks in and it is a must have car seat.  My second favorite item for newborns is the Ergo Carrier.  I have tried them all!  This one is hands down the most comfortable and vesatile carrier.  The newborn support is need for newborns and works great.  I still can hike with my 3 year old on my back.

Photographing moms and dads with their newborn babies is one of my favorite things to do! They will never be this tiny again and they will never be this small in your arms.  They will love looking back and seeing how much they are loved and cherish each photograph you have of them as a newborn.  This is capturing a memory with your baby. I am located just outside of Atlanta in Buford, Georgia.  I love to capture timeless, natural newborn images and focus on the sweetness of your baby.

This Bride is so incredibly gorgeous and I loved capturing her day! I hope all of my brides will choose to wear a veil in the future and if it is a long one even better!  They photograph so beautifully and add a bit of elegance and movement to your photos.  You can always take it off for the reception if you choose.  The Payne Corley house is a fantastic venue located in Duluth, Georgia.  I can’t wait to photograph my next wedding there.
