The stories I tell

Every story, every moment, it’s your time to shine. Here’s what makes my heart beat the hardest.

Thank you for considering me as your Atlanta newborn photographer. I'm thrilled at the opportunity to meet you and create stunning, everlasting photos that you and your family will cherish for generations.

When selecting a newborn photographer, you want someone dependable and trustworthy to photograph your brand-new baby. With so much stress during this time, it's important to feel comfortable and relaxed during the photo session, knowing that the photographer will capture the love and significance of these moments and provide a great experience.

I am deeply passionate about capturing the beauty and innocence of your little one, documenting these memories for a lifetime. Welcoming a new baby into your life is such an incredible experience. It's a time of incredible blessings and excitement, even amidst the sleepless nights.

What better way to celebrate the beginning of this new chapter than with a newborn photography session? I believe it's essential to document these fleeting moments when your baby is so tiny, as they grow up incredibly fast. These images will help you remember every detail, from their soft skin to their adorable little toes, and the unique personality that shines through from the very start. You want to have beautiful, crafted images, ideally without it feeling like another thing on your to-do list. And that’s where I come in.

Your newborn photography session is designed to be stress-free and enjoyable. I provide all the outfits, props we need to capture beautiful images, you just simply need to bring the baby to our Atlanta studio while I take care of the rest.

I am inspired by photos that will take you back in time to the moment that the image was taken - how you felt, how your child smells, the feeling of having them snuggle into your arms. The sleepless nights, the feeling of those perfectly imperfect days with your newborn that seemed to go by too fast. Being pregnant and having a brand-new family are such monumental events in one's lives. There are so many unknown and lots of different advice when you have a baby, but what everyone will consistently tell you is that time goes by in a blink of an eye.

Capturing beautiful images of your maternity glow and gorgeous bump as well as your brand-new newborn, for you to fall in love all over every time you see them, is what I love most.

"Our experience with Mariela was absolutely wonderful. She was very patient with our newborn, and used several techniques to keep him calm and relaxed. Mariela’s turn around for the photographs was very fast, and we loved absolutely every one of them. She gave us so many poses and props to choose from. She took care of everything at the shoot; we were able to show up and relax. Do yourself a favor and book with Mariela! She will go above and beyond to provide you with your desired experience for the shoot from color schemes to props. She is everything we could have hoped for."

"We booked Mariela for our newborn shoot and had the best experience! She is very professional, responsive, and a pleasure to work with. She was open to all my ideas and offered some of her own that we loved as well. We can not wait to share the pictures of our beautiful daughter with our family, friends, and socials! 10/10 would recommend!"

-Sidney J

"I am so glad that I stumbled across Mariela Duval Photography on Instagram. Which by the way speaks for itself. I can’t say enough about how professional Mariela is and the quality of photos that she provides. I was so pleased with my newborn session and final photographs, that I will continue to use Mariela in the future for 6 months, 9 months and 1 year old photos. There just aren’t enough words to possibly describe how amazing each and every photo that Mariela snaps. She has a magical way of finding the perfect angle and capture precious moments of your new bundle of joy."
