Little Moon Photography Newborn Posing Workshop Review

Little Moon Photography Newborn Posing Workshop Review

One of the best things about being a photographer is that the photography community is so very close knit, and I have so many awesome friends all over the United States and in Atlanta!  When my good friend Amber of Little Moon Photography asked me to come up to her studio to help her with a newborn posing workshop, I naturally said yes!  Amber and I “met” on a photography forum 6 or 7 years ago and upon my arrival at the airport in DC we were like old friends! Though I wasn’t technically an “attendee” of Amber’s newborn photography workshop, I was her extra set of hands and baby spotter for the entire day,  I can tell you that she is amazing at what she does, and is very open to her students and great at teaching her skills to others!  She has the most gorgeous newborn studio in Downtown Leesburg, VA.  I definitely learned a few tricks by watching Amber work hands-on with her three newborn models, as she went through all of her steps including client contact, session preparation for parents, how she handles the baby upon arrival in her studio to get those great sleepy shots, studio light, posing, working with backdrops, etc!  I would highly recommend anyone looking to up their game in newborn photography to consider attending one of her future workshops. Amber in action…. And one of our super precious baby models Tessa Rice Photography specializes in Smyrna Vinings Family Child Photography and enjoys capturing Smyrna GA Family Portraits.  Tessa reviews a Newborn Posing Workshop that she attended with Little Moon Photography.... read more
The G Family | Smyrna Atlanta Newborn Child Photography

The G Family | Smyrna Atlanta Newborn Child Photography

I loved working with this sweet family, and enjoyed being welcomed into their beautiful home for their sweet boy’s atlanta lifestyle newborn session.  His big sister was super cute and sassy, and I always have a few tricks up my sleeves (cough…. SMARTIES… cough) to entice little ones to cooperate with me!  I love the images I was able to capture of her and her sweet baby brother.  Lifestyle newborn sessions are great because they are held in the comfort of my client’s homes, and offer a mix of candid, interactive images and some traditional posed newborn images. Enjoy!   Love her sass! How gorgeous is this sweet momma?   Newborn Photographer Tessa Rice specializes in Smyrna Atlanta Newborn Child Photography.

Christina + Will | Rome, Georgia Wedding Photography at Forrest Place

Christina + Will | Rome, Georgia Wedding Photography at Forrest Place Christina and Will’s wedding was a gorgeous winter affair, and is proof that you can still have gorgeous wedding photos despite constant rain and freezing temps!  I had so much fun working with Holly at The Season and her expertise definitely helped the day go seamlessly with the inclement weather.  The ceremony was held at Morris Chapel on the campus of the Darlington School in Rome (such a pretty chapel for a wedding!), and then the party continued to the wedding reception at Forrest Place.  With non-stop music from the ATL Groove Factory, the couple and guests danced the night away!   Special thanks to my assistant photographer Tara for her help, as always!  Enjoy!
