We all dread it. School picture day. "Say cheese" often right after gym class! A quick snap with who knows what type of smile or expression. We cross our fingers there aren't too many lunch stains on their shirt and that they hair looks at least semi-normal. We love the photo because its our child but is this really the best way to capture your child through the years?
What is it that we want to remember from these photos? Their sweet cheeks, toothless grin. Maybe a glimpse of their style through their outfit choice that day. Often how their face is changing each year along with their personality. These quick snap shots after lunch or gym class are not doing these kids justice. Classic Kids Fine Art Portrait sessions in the studio do just that. These freeze their personalities. Their looks. Their expressions. Something is authentic to them at this specific age. These are mini sessions in my east cobb studio. They are just quick enough to keep their interest but just long enough to make sure their personality shines. Your session fee includes a $75 credit to purchase either digital files or a piece of framed wall art. Lets chat and plan your Classic Kids Fine Art portrait session.
Baby-led posing. This is how you would describe a relaxed, natural, womb-like posing style focused on creating simple, classic, timeless newborn photography. Sometimes parents may think "studio newborn photography" must mean baby is put in awkward positions, posed with many props, bright colors, elaborate set ups etc. That is one style of photography and there are some very talented photographers skilled in that area. However, I am drawn to a very simple approach. My goal is that you see your baby, not the set up. You see the way they curl, or put their hands over their face, or stretch with a big yawn. I want you to see how small they look in your hands. There is still posing involved in these Pure Baby sessions, however I am encouraging baby to curl and then letting their body move in a way that is natural to them. I refine their own poses to be sweet and photo perfect while still working with their natural movements.
We all love having our babies photographed! From when they are still in your belly, to their milestones through the first year. Then there is a long wait until those senior photos when they are 18! Some of the best parts of their childhood are the sweet expressions, their facial features changing, their personalities showing. We always take individual images of each kid at outdoor family sessions but there is something to said about focusing just on them for a short session to really photograph them. Their features. Their freckles. Their personalities. I'm so thrilled to be adding children's portraits to my services. These will be petite sessions of 15-20 minutes, with the option to extend for siblings, and will be held certain times of the year. Im excited to offer two different styles to better fit your family. A light backdrop for a more traditional look and a darker backdrop that really lets your kids shine. The light backdrop will look great with classic, neutral colors and whites. The darker option will be perfect for letting them and their outfit pop. Its a great option to use color, their favorite space shirt, whatever is just "them" and how you want to remember this time. More details to come soon!
2019 is bringing a new website and I could not be more excited. The last few years have been such a blessing with lots of wonderful sessions that have not made it to the blog or website. I cannot wait to share some of my favorite newborn and milestone sessions with you all and show you how timeless, classic images can be created in your home no matter the light you have, the style of images you choose, or type of home you live in. Here are a few of my favorites from this year. Enjoy!
Fresh 48 sessions are when I come to your hospital room the first few days after babies arrival and we capture the details that only occur in the hospital. The hospital bracelet, the iconic swaddle blanket and knit hat, their tiny tiny tiny toes and fingers holding tightly to mom. Its very personal and authentic. What I LOVE is when we take it to the next level and shoot a meet the sibling session. I'm a fly on the wall when your big brother or big sister comes to meet their new best friend for the first time. This big brother was full of smiles and had a great time counting brothers toes and giving him snuggles. These meet the sibling and fresh 48 sessions are the most amazing keepsake that freezes time and takes you right back to the moment your family grew. Pass the tissues.
This family nailed it. It may have been a warm 90 degree fall day in Atlanta but this family was relaxed, happy to have fun with each other and made it so easy for me to capture their connection. They let me see the love they have for each other in such an authentic way. I was able to let the session move along organically and just focus on photographing them in such a natural way.
Little sweet babies. One of my favorite clients to photograph. These sessions are the most personal and detailed that I offer. I strive to create heirloom quality portraits to document this moment in time. I have also fallen in LOVE with videos. You will be seeing many more from The Morgan Studio including video announcements in some of my newborn packages. Enjoy! I am now booking newborn photography sessions for late summer and fall in East Cobb, Marietta, Roswell and surrounding areas.
One of the last sessions I shot before Maternity leave, these two made the most of a chilly day and loved on each other... at least long enough to get some great images of them together. I love that we captured glimpses of each of their personalities. From Mr. GQ to beautiful big sis. Enjoy!
Baby Welles was the perfect baby to show off my natural, classic style. The simplicity of this session showcased Welles and her baby details. Her big blue eyes and sweet smile really stole the show. Oh and who can resist a bonnet! Perfection!
