Atlanta maternity photographer

I get a lot of questions around whether or not a studio or outdoor maternity session is best (and I cover that answer in my post here). While there really is no wrong choice, below I’m sharing a few reasons why you might choose to book a studio maternity session over an outdoor session.

I’ve had this post on my mind for a long time (for more than six months, actually), but haven’t had the time, or guts, to actually sit down and gather my thoughts. Being a mom, and even a business owner and motherhood photographer, helped me get through the hardest year of my life.

Here’s a guide on how to start a client closet for photographers and important things to keep in mind while doing so.
