I want to preserve the memories of your journey through motherhood so that you can look back at the images and remember the emotions and the love you felt in that moment. I want to create beautiful and meaningful images that you can cherish and pass down to generations to come.
Let me capture this amazing adventure you are embarking on as you start your new family, hand in hand, side by side.
I am Mariela, and this is a little about me. I am the mother of three boys, the wife of my hero and most amazing man, and the sister to 5 gorgeous ladies. I am a pharmacist and specialize in pediatrics - so I have always worked with children. I am extremely passionate about Cystic Fibrosis, and when I am not with a camera, I am talking to children living with Cystic Fibrosis about their medications in the clinic at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta. Oh yes, and I love, love to travel and I am always planning our next trip! And is best to talk to me after I had a cup of coffee in the morning.
My style is a mixture of directed posing and authentic interaction.
In the studio, if photographing your newborn, I will capture their best angle and pose them to show how all their perfect little features.
For maternity photos, I want to make you feel like a Goddess and celebrate the power behind creating a new life
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.
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.
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.
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.
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
