Now Booking Due Dates {Athens Alabama Newborn Photographer}

Newborn Photographer DMP is always booking due dates!  How does that work?  If you are expecting, I not only do newborn sessions, I also have baby plans for you to choose from.  You pay a deposit and I work the terms of your balance with you, as you go.  Your baby gets a year of images!  I capture Maternity, Newborn, 3, 6, 9 & 12 months!  The 12 month session always includes an adorable cake smash session, with a cake design of your choice provided by me and The Bakery at Elkmont.  I work with you and your due date to plan the most precious images of your newborn within the first 14 days of life.  These sessions produce the sweetest timeless treasure, you cannot capture at any other age.  Email me for more details:

The Best of 2013 {Athens Alabama Photographer}

2014-01-12_00132014-01-12_00122014-01-12_00112014-01-12_00102014-01-12_00092014-01-12_00082014-01-12_00072014-01-12_00062014-01-12_00052014-01-12_00032013 was an amazing year for DMP!  I could sit here and go on with thanks for you support throughout the year, but words seem so inadequate. You are the reason I push forward, you are my driving force and I do thank you from the bottom of my heart!

2013 was bitter-sweet.  God fully opened my eyes to my purpose, when he chose to bring little Thomas back home to Him.  I owe Ben and Haley Raby so much.  Because they chose me to be their photographer, I got to be part of something so beautiful for 19 months. I took that opportunity for granted until April 14th, 2013.  When Thomas passed from this earth, he took part of my heart with him.  His passing serves as a reminder of why I do what I do.  I was reminded why capturing memories is so important.  Don’t take one day with your family for granted and don’t avoid the camera for fear of what you might see, stand in front of it and smile and appreciate the opportunity to make and capture a memory with your family, that will last a lifetime.  2014-01-12_0002Because of you, my clients and supporters, 2013 ended bigger and better than I ever dreamed!  The opportunity to relocate to downtown Athens was made available and God provided a way.  I gained an amazing support system and 4 photography sisters in the process.  Together we established the oh-so-chic Studio Blue and expect 2014 to be the best year yet!  Please check out: Reflections by Amanda, Austin Pike Photography, Carla Lawrence Photography and Dana Baker Photography.  I am over the moon with excitement to be on this journey with such amazing talent.
