Meghan & Lillie | Mommy & Me Session | Woodstock Family Photographer

Motherhood, mommy & me, just the girls sessions, whatever you want to call them, I adore them! These two especially! I have been very fortunate to have photographed them a few times, and enjoy our sessions each and every time. Again, it’s fun to watch the little one grow and change with each session.

Here are some of my favorites from this sweet summer session! We headed to the lake again and the sunset was just perfect!

Heather | Maternity | Roswell Maternity Photographer

This mama and I headed out for a sunrise session one morning at the Roswell Mill Waterfall. It’s such a great location, and just an easy short hike down to this beautiful waterfall. There’s also a pretty covered bridge, and the brick from mill ruins provide some texture and interest.

Heather initially contacted me about doing her newborn photos. As we were talking about scheduling her maternity session, she mentioned how easily this time is forgotten once the baby is born. As women, and mothers, our body does the most amazing thing, and I think it’s important to document, just like every other part of your baby’s life. It’s something we don’t want to forget.

At the end of pregnancy most women are just over carrying around the extra weight, swelling, and all the other discomforts that may come in late pregnancy (no one said making babies was easy). Which is why I urge you to have them done in the beginning of your third trimester. You have a nice bump to show off, and you are coming off that second trimester high. You still feel great, and taking pictures to document this time will be an enjoyable experience.

Here are some of my favorites from this session!!

If you, or someone you know is expecting, I would love to talk to you about being your maternity and newborn photographer. Maternity sessions are included in my newborn packages. Contact me today about booking your session!!

Miller Family | Acworth Family Photographer

This family met me out at the lake on a steamy Georgia evening this summer. They are one of the families that I have photographed a few time this year, and I genuinely enjoy seeing them each time. It’s so fun to watch my client’s family’s grow and change with each session, and when you have really little ones, it happens fast and more often than you might think. Just check out their Fresh 48 session, and then head over to their in-home newborn session, both on my blog!

There are a couple of perks to using the same photographer session after session. One, is that your images will have some cohesiveness as far as style, making your gallery walls much easier to put together. Your kids are also comfortable with the photographer, so you spend less time warming them, and your husband, to the idea of them pointing a camera in your face for a bit.

It’s also a nice compliment to me when my client’s come back each time! Here’s a few of my favorites from our steamy summer session at the lake!

Whether it’s the first time we’ve worked together, or the tenth, I’d love to plan a session for your family! Contact me at 505-414-7224, or click below to get started planning your custom session!

Gregg Family | Atlanta Family Photographer

I don’t know why I have waited so long to blog this session…or so many others lately. The blogging bug has bit me though, and I am so excited to dig back in and share some of my recent favorites!

This family took me out on an adventure, and I can definitely say that I have never had this much fun on a session! Beyond taking photos, we had a great time just exploring this beautiful location, and taking in a gorgeous sunset!

I met Bekah (mom) through one of my photography groups last year, and I just cannot say enough nice things about her. She was one of the first real life (real life meaning not just a person I talked to on forums or Insta) photography people I had ever met. I was so nervous to meet a real life photographer for the first time, I was afraid she was going to call me on my bluff, and tell me I had no business being in the photography community. I tend to overthink things, and catastrophize…obviously. Instead she was, and has continued to be very welcoming, helpful, genuine, and just an awesome person to be around. She has truly made this journey in to the photography business a little easier, and more pleasant to navigate! Not to mention, she is also an amazing senior photographer, and she also did the amazing head shots you see here on my website!

Anywho, I was so excited when she asked me to take her family’s photos. We took a trip to Arabia Mountain, which is just outside of Atlanta. It’s an amazing spot with views unlike any other in Georgia. It actually reminds me a lot of where I grew up out west. It’s a short, and easy hike up to the top and the views are amazing at sunset! It’s definitely on my top list of places to shoot in Atlanta.

If you are interested in booking your own family sunset session, contact me below! My family sessions are meant to be fun, laid-back, and showcase the love and connection you share with you family!

Hoffman Lifestyle Newborn Twins | Atlanta Newborn Photographer

Not only did I get the opportunity to capture this family's Fresh 48, but I also got to see these two sweet babies once they made their way home! I get asked sometimes which session is better a Fresh 48 in the hospital or a Lifestyle Session at home? To be honest, I can't pick which one I love more. I think that they both bring something unique and equally as beautiful to the picture.

At a Fresh 48 Newborn Session, such as the one I did for this family, I was able to capture the exciting moment that big sister met her sisters for the very first time. That, my friends, is not something you get to re-enact! Those first days in the hospital are also such a blur with people coming in and out constantly, plus there's a big chance you haven't slept in a few days, it's all a blur after a while. Having Fresh 48 photos done helps you remember those first days. How little your baby was, how you felt the first time you saw them, how quickly you fell in love with them.

At a Lifestyle Newborn Session we do still capture the newness, and the connection, but we get to capture it in the place you call home, your people, in your place, surrounded by what makes you a family. There's more time to capture those sweet sibling photos, and I get to document that nursery you spent so much time preparing. I guess you could say there is a little more personality infused in this session. 

Both sessions are important, and if you can swing it, I urge you to book both. I do offer a special when you book both sessions. I will typically wait until your baby is 4 weeks to do a lifestyle newborn session if we also did a Fresh 48 so you get to see how much they have changed in just a mere 4 weeks. Hang on mama, because the growing and changing, it doesn't slow down! Give yourself something beautiful to hold on to these days that pass by so quickly.

Baby Henry | Atlanta Fresh 48 Photographer

I always get so excited when I get that call that one of my Fresh 48 babies has made their debut. After meeting, and having such a great time with this couple at their maternity session, I couldn't wait to see them again and meet their baby boy, so I may have been waiting by the phone for the news.

Upon arriving, the nurse came in to do his hearing test so I got to sit and talk to them about their birth story. 99% of the time I come to the hospital for these newborn sessions, there is also a doctor or nurse coming in to do something, just how it goes when you are in the hospital. I am always happy to wait my turn. Once I got my turn, I fell completely head over heels for this little boy. I think you'll see why!

Are you expecting? Or know someone who is? Do you want to beautifully capture those first days with your new baby? Those first days you are in a kind of haze, but so much is happening that you just don't want to forget. Fresh 48 sessions are simple and beautiful, and capture all the love you have for your new baby. Contact me to see if I am available for your due date, and also to talk about booking your complimentary maternity session.

Wade Family | Woodstock Maternity Photographer

I spent yesterday evening with this family and their sweet new baby girl. A few weeks ago I met them at their home for an in-home maternity session before the little girl made her appearance. I really enjoy doing sessions for my clients in their home. While I love an open field at golden hour, there is just something special about documenting these big moments in the place you call home.

It's also great when you have little kids on a nap schedule! I typically shoot my outdoor sessions the hour after sunrise, or before sunset, the latter never being good for toddler bedtimes or moods. This is so I can get pretty light, on your pretty family's faces. When we shoot indoors I am more likely to be able to work with your little ones nap schedule. I can find a room, or a window with pretty light just about anywhere! 

Once your baby is here I like to get a fun before and after for you as well, which you will see in the images below!

I am so looking forward to sharing this families newborn session soon. In the meantime here are my favorites from their in-home maternity session!

If you, or someone you know is expecting, I would love to talk to you about being your maternity and newborn photographer. Maternity sessions are included in my newborn packages, because I like to get to know my families before they invite me in to their space with their new baby. Contact me today about booking your session!!

 

 

Baby Eli | Woodstock Lifestyle Newborn Photographer

I had such a fun time at this in-home lifestyle newborn session! Not only did we get some sweet shots of their new baby boy, but I also got to capture the energy of their 2 year old twins. We had just started the session, but like most sessions, the newborn decided he wanted to eat first. So the twins and I had some fun jumping on the bed. 

These sessions to me are all about capturing your new family, the connections you share, and the love you have built in your home. I love getting a few moments with the siblings, and just watching them interact with their new brother or sister. With toddlers those moments are short, but they can be oh so sweet!! 

Here are a few of my favorite images, probably a bit of an overshare, but I couldn't pick just a few!!

If you are expecting and want to book your lifestyle newborn session, contact me at adrienne@adriennelouisephotography.com. Newborn sessions include a complimentary maternity session in your third trimester! Gift certificates are also available, and make a great gift for expecting parents!

Baby Sophia | Atlanta Lifestyle Newborn Photographer

A couple of weeks ago I got to document a very special baby, my niece, Sophia! My family lives out in New Mexico and I wasn't sure I would be able to be there to capture these sweet moments. Thanks to an unfortunate, yet well timed set of events, I was able to!! I was even able to sneak in a few of her with her cousin, who just adores her. Here are a few of my favorites from their in-home lifestyle newborn session!

If you are expecting, or just had a baby and want to preserve this precious time with your newborn, let's chat and plan a session! Lifestyle newborn sessions are done in the comfort of your own home anywhere from a few days to 10 weeks after your baby is born.  They also include a complimentary maternity session in your third trimester to document your pregnancy, and growing family.
