As a professional North Georgia photographer, I’ve gotten to work with so many amazing families! Getting to watch my client’s journey from an expecting couple to parenthood makes my heart so happy!
I’ve been asked lots of questions about preparing for photoshoots, timing, and location, and I’m answering them all here for you today. If you’re looking to learn more about my photography sessions, this blog is for you!
When it comes to my photography, I love creating light, airy, timeless, and heartfelt moments that will never go out of style! I love using natural light and muted light colors in my sessions. It gives my photos a very fresh, clean, and warm feeling aesthetic.

I specialize in family, motherhood, newborn, and children milestone sessions. I don’t photograph “all the things” I absolutely love documenting new or expecting parents and their littles. It brings me so much joy. However, if you’re looking for someone to do engagement photos or senior portraits, I can recommend other local photographers.
I’m a North Georgia photographer, based out of Dahlonega, Georgia and serving all North Georgia and Atlanta areas. This is my home! I love meeting and getting to know the families in the area!
My natural light studio & private 60-acre farm property is located in Dahlonega. It’s exclusive to Grace Emily Photography clients! If you know me, then you’ll know that I adore my family farm. It’s one of my favorite things about being a North Georgia Photographer. The lush green fields and beautiful trees really help capture natural light and help create the most beautiful photos. Check out my family farm for yourself!
Absolutely! I love creating beautiful images wherever the client would like their session. It’s so exciting to discover new and beautiful photography locations in Northern Georgia, too!
This is a great question! Newborn sessions are held in the client’s home. This alleviates the stress of packing a diaper bag and traveling with a brand new baby. As a mother myself, I know how stressful that can be!
I will capture the family in the nursery you’ve so lovingly prepared and throughout the family’s home. Don’t worry too much about needing to have your house spotless, As long as the nursery is tidy, I can work my magic!
I recommend that maternity sessions be held between 27-34 weeks. Typically, during this time mama is feeling her best and is usually showing at this point! This gives you enough time to prepare for your photos and enough time after to share them with family and friends before baby comes!
When it comes to a newborn session, I typically aim for around the 1-2 weeks old mark, or whenever your family is home and settled! The first few weeks after you bring your baby home can be a lot. Between learning a new routine and handling eager visitors, it can be difficult to carve out time for a session. However, the sooner the better: You don’t want to miss out on those first few precious moments!
If you don’t need a lot of photos then the mini/petite sessions might be right for you. However, these sessions are exclusively held in the spring & fall with very limited spots. Get in touch with me early if you’re looking to do a mini session.
I’ve been a North Georgia photographer long enough to know that one of the most challenging things about family photo sessions is figuring out what everyone will wear! Luckily, I offer a wide variety of wardrobe options for women, babies & young children.
My Client Wardrobe is a completely free resource that makes planning outfits easy! Find out more about my free Client Wardrobe on my blog!
The Membership includes four full sessions with all the best images from each session (40+ images) and one free 8×8 fine art album (valued at $800). It’s perfect for documenting a baby’s first year, from maternity to their first birthday.
Unlike the standard single session, there is no choosing the standard 15 images or upgrading to the full gallery. Membership families also receive first dibs on dates on my busy calendar!
You can find my pricing and session details right on my website under Investment. There, you’ll find everything you need to know about booking a session with me!
If you have any other questions please feel free to contact me or check out my blog. I share lots of ideas and advice on how to make your Grace Emily session easy and enjoyable!
