New Baby Club Information : Middle Georgia Maternity & Newborn Photographer

I have been tossing around the idea of having a baby club for some time now.  I didn't want to take the same approach as other studios or other photographers do.  I wanted to do something different.  Something more than props and backdrops.  I wanted a fresh and more natural approach.  To capture those precious first few weeks as they really are.  It's about those little chubby bellies, the tiny little hands, the snuggling together, the kisses, the bottles, the baths. We aim to capture those moments, before they are gone.

I remember waking up in the wee hours of the morning with my first daughter and knowing I needed to soak up those moments because they were going to fly by and I would forget the tiny details. And, ten years later, I realize that, I indeed, forget some of the details. We come in to capture those - so that ten years from now you can look back and even though your memory might be fuzzy, the pictures won't be.

For newborns, we would come into your home and spend a few hours with you, typically in the first two weeks, capturing those everyday moments. It's not posed, it's not forced.  It's a more calm, more natural way to photograph newborns.  We want you to look back at the photos in the years to come and remember what it was like to hold that tiny little baby in your arms.  To remember that sweet baby smell.  Those things are so fleeting, they pass by so quickly.

From them on, we would come in every 3 months until the baby is to the age where he or she can be photographed outside. These photos would include not only portrait shots, detail shots, etc. but also interactions with you.

Each session comes with a CD of both high resolution images and resized images for web sharing.  You also have the option to purchase prints as well.  Each CD will have anywhere from 20-40 images from your session as well as a copyright release form so that you can print as often as you wish.

There are several baby club options to choose from:

For 5 sessions (newborn, 3 months, 6 months, 9 months & 1 year) - $600

For 6 sessions (maternity, newborn, 3 months, 6 months, 9 months & 1 year) - $700

For 7 sessions (maternity, birth, newborn, 3 months, 6 months, 9 months & 1 year) - $800

We are incredibly excited about this new venture and hope that you will be too!  If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact us, we would love to hear from you!!

Kirby - Adams Wedding : Middle Georgia Wedding Photographer

Last year I was contacted by a bride-to-be about doing her engagement and wedding photos.  We discussed, at great length, all of the amazing ideas she had for her wedding.  I knew from the very beginning that it was going to be something special.  We had a similiar love for color and texture and all things vintage inspired.  It was a match made in wedding photography heaven!  When the big day arrived I couldn't wait to get there to see all of the details, the dress, the location.  Needless to say, she didn't disappoint.  It was a photographer's dream come true!!!!  We had a fabulous time shooting this wedding and were so touched to have been a part of their day.  I was even given my own flower to wear - something that has never happened.  They worked hard at making sure everyone felt special...and they accomplished that! 

Thank you both so much for letting us be a part of your day - it was beautiful and so full of love.

Cox Family : Middle Georgia Family Photographer

I think it goes without saying that I adore what I do.  Meeting new people, making new friends and being a part of someone's family, even if just for a few hours.  It is what makes me happy.  When I get to take photos of good friends, of people who are special parts of my life in different ways, well, that makes me plain giddy.  Case in point, this beautiful, funny and warm family.  We have been friends for a very long time...and so getting the chance to capture their dynamic, their love, well, that was very special to me.  (Catching up over some Chinese food was icing on the cake!)  I adore their daughter, who is so full of life and just gorgeous.  The camera loves her too, and it shows! 

To my sweet friends, thank you, from the bottom of my heart, for letting me do what I love - capture you, as you really are. The laughs, the rumpled hair, and the love that you have for one another.
