Baby Bates’ Story | Atlanta Maternity and Newborn Photographer

There aren’t many pregnant mommas who would hike through 90 degree heat up a mountain to get pretty sun-drenched photos…but I knew Alli would. :) We wiped away lots of sweat during her maternity shoot in the heat of July, got lost trying to find the foot of the mountain, and never actually made it to the very top (annnnnd then got rained on) but these are still some of my favorite photos ever. Alli and Ryan and I have been friends since middle school so I figured I had a little bit more grace to experiment with their session. I also brought my camera to meet baby Bates in the hospital and we did their newborn session at home as a family of four. Enjoy this pictorial story of little brother from bump to baby bed!
