Time is a thief! Days may feel like they drag, but years go by so fast!
This is the time to freeze those special moments of your babies and new family that you will cherish forever - you want to be able to remember everything about your newborn; the wrinkled skin, the little toes, the smile, and that unique personality that shines through the eyes of your newborn.
Mariela Duval is a newborn and maternity photographer located in Atlanta, Ga. She wants to help you remember how it felt to have your child grow inside of you and how your baby smelled as a newborn. Peeling skin, little toes, yawns, peaceful sleep, great eye contact - we will capture all of it!
Before you know it, your baby will be walking and running, playing sports, starting school, and graduating from high school. Time does not slow down! But with beautiful photos of those first few days, you can remember how they felt in your embrace when they were so tiny!
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 smell, 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!"
"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."
