Beautiful blooming flowers, changing leaves in the fall and that stunning light on your hair. There are so many reasons as creatives that we love the outdoors. As a photographer, it is a playground of light and dimension to use in your images with endless options to explore. However, as a mom, we all know the elements do not always play in your toddlers favor. As much as we all love the outdoor backdrop for photos, there are many benefits of a studio milestone session. For growing families, especially, scheduling a studio photo session can be more convenient, flexible, and easier to manage. As a busy Marietta photographer, I want to walk you through pros and cons in deciding if the studio is the best option for your next photography session!
We have all been there. You spend weeks shopping for outfits, getting everyone ready, and packing bags only for the bottom to fall out of the sky. Or in Georgia, you have that lovely Fall day in mind and the weather Gods decide to throw a nice warm 95* day in the middle of October. Or my personal favorite… when Fall comes and goes so quickly we end up bundled in full winter gear November 1st.
As one of the benefits of a Marietta Studio Milestone Session the weather never changes. No toddlers with blue lips or cranky red babies from the heat. We keep the Marietta Studio a nice 70* year round. We avoid delays, pushing back sessions and missing milestones due to a reschedule!
When scheduling your child’s 6 month, 9 month or first birthday photo session, this may be the first time a child has sat on the ground outside. Some babies love the grass but others only want to be picked up. They may also be so fascinated by everything to see outside that smiling those new pretty teeth is their last priority. Inside the studio we have a soft bed to sit on, blankets any tiny chairs. Perfect for each and every milestone we want to document!
We know naps are a really big deal the first half of life. A tired baby or toddler can make or break your Marietta photo session. The hard part is navigating the pretty light outside at the same time your child is in their best spirits. Outdoor photos are planned around the sun’s position at certain times of day. The best light doesn’t always line up with their happiest times.
The benefits of a Marietta Studio Milestone Session give us the flexibility to book sessions at times that work best for you. That means no matter when naps, meals, and other routines happen, we can find a time that works best for you.
Choosing to do your Milestone session in the studio, you don’t have to worry about the potential meltdown over missed naps, or missing bedtimes for sunset photos. Instead, the light in the studio is perfect and we are able to schedule your session around what works for your family.
When our children are little they have so many sweet things we want to remember. Whether those items belong to them or they are special outfits passed down through generations. Their lovies, favorite toys and special blankets get taken around most places they go and I love using their milestone sessions as a time to photograph and remember those items. In the studio those items are kept safe and clean. Perfectly documented but kept safe and clean for the next generation!
I have spent the last few months adding everything I can think of to our Marietta studio location. My goal is to make your newborn and milestone session as easy and stress free as possible. We have a pump, snacks, drinks, toys, and even a whole studio wardrobe to pull from. If you bring your little one for a milestone session and need to jump in for a few photos, I have everything we need right there. We have a bathroom for potty training accidents, mirrors to check your make up and the best part? Zero humidity. Does your hair immediately loose curl when you walk outside? The studio may be your best option!
We are located at 707 Whitlock Ave in Historic Marietta, Georgia – 2 miles off I-75 and a short drive from Atlanta, Roswell and Vinings.
