I'm here to capture the beautiful journey of motherhood for you. So, when you look back at these images, you'll feel all the love and emotions flooding back. Let me capture stunning memories, ones you can cherish and pass down for generations to come.

​​Parenthood is a wild ride, full of excitement and a tad overwhelming, isn't it? With all the prep for your little one, adding more to your plate can feel so stressful. But hey, let me handle one thing for you: freezing extraordinary moments! I’m obsessed with helping you document your path into motherhood by capturing, artistically, classic photos of this incredible time in your life.

Hi there! I'm Mariela, and here's a little peek into my world. First off, I'm a proud mom of three awesome boys, married to my absolute hero, and lucky enough to call five incredible ladies my sisters.

I'm also a pharmacist with a passion for pediatrics, so working with kids has always been my thing. I'm particularly passionate about working with children living with Cystic Fibrosis, in the clinic at Children's Healthcare of Atlanta, chatting with them about their medications. And when I'm not behind the lens or in front of patients, you'll find me busy planning our next family adventure because, let's face it, I'm a travel enthusiast through and through! Oh, and fair warning: I'm definitely at my best after a cup of morning coffee. Let's chat!

A little bit about me

Capturing Moments, Creating Memories: Your Journey Through Newborn and Maternity Photography

I'm mariela

My photography style is a mixture of directed posing with genuine interaction.

When it comes to newborns in the studio, I aim to capture their most precious angles, delicately posing them to showcase all their adorable little features.

As for maternity shoots, my goal is to make you feel like an absolute goddess, celebrating the incredible power of bringing new life into the world. Let's capture the beauty of this journey together!

"There are few things that inspire and excite me more than photography!"

Here’s where you can go on a deeper dive into what started your photography journey and why you love it so much – talk about your motivations and purpose, why every shoot is a new experience. 

You can also write about your overall style and personality, what makes you different from all the other photographers they’ve researched. Don’t be shy!

Talk about how your photos will help them relive the day for years and generations to come.

“Every wedding, every shoot, I see the world through a whole new lens. Your story will be different from the last, and this ignites my passion all over again.”

At Mariela Duval Photography in Atlanta, Georgia, I use a camera to help you capture and document those precious moments and emotions. Every moment shapes the future, and I love having the opportunity to capture those moments to put a smile on someone’s face or comfort a loved one. As forgettable as ordinary little details may seem now, they become unforgettable and extraordinary when you look back on them in the future.  

"With every photoshoot, I view the world through a fresh lens. Your story, distinct from any before, fuels my passion once more."

My process

Once you contact me, we will set up a phone conversation. I will explain my process and also learn about your vision. In this way, we can get to know each other a little bit and see if we are a good fit.

We will discuss your photo session, your expectations, my process, the investment and answer any questions.

"Rain, hail or shine, i won’t miss a beat."

Phone Call Consultation

The day of your photos! Once you arrive at my studio in Sandy Springs, GA, I will have all of the newborn set ups and ready to go based on your color palete! The photo session will take 2-4 hours for newborns (1 -2 hour for maternity)

I will have everything you need for baby (just bring milk and diapers) and kick your feet up and relax. You can even apply your makeup once you are at the studio.

I have beverages and snacks available, but you are welcome to bring your own.

The Session

Reveal and Ordering

Approximately 3-7 days following your photo session, we will review your images over zoom or I can send you an online gallery and you will make your image selections for purchase.

All prints, digitals, and products are sold separately

"Had the most wonderful experience with Mariela. We got to know her through a friend so we already knew the photos were going to be amazing. But it is her service, friendliness and professionalism that made me give her 5 stars!. She was very patient and made the baby very comfortable. We had several reasonable special requests, and she accommodated them all. She went above and beyond to make it special for us. Highly recommended!" - Sachith D
