What Makes Maternity Photography in Atlanta, GA, So Special?

Maternity Photographer - Atlanta ga

July 18, 2018

When setting up maternity photography, Atlanta, GA, residents have a lot of locations and options at their disposal. At James Hill Photography, we think our location in Decatur offers extra special benefits for moms-to-be. Here’s just a few of the reasons you should consider doing your maternity photos in Decatur.


Beautiful Outdoor Landscapes

Decatur offers a variety of beautiful outdoor parks, gardens, and other spaces, and of course, we can always go into Atlanta if desired. While booking your session, let us know if you have any special places where you want to do your photography session, and we’ll try to work out the logistics to make that happen.


Historic Backdrops

Other moms like the idea of framing their journey into motherhood with historical sites around Decatur and Atlanta. That may include the Old Courthouse on the square, historic homes throughout the area, sites on the Emory University campus, or a variety of other locations. However, many of our clients choose to take advantage of our beautiful studio space.


Public Art

The area features everything from changing displays around the square and throughout Oakhurst to the “Living Walls” mural project featuring work by street artists and award winning professionals. If you want to add a pop of color, pose in front of a painted brick wall, or integrate modern sculpture into your maternity photography. There are many possibilities in Decatur.


Longer Summer Season

Whether you choose to do your maternity photography inside or out, you get to enjoy the benefits of a longer summer season. That gives the photographer a longer timeframe to capture just the right light. It also makes outdoor spaces more hospitable. You simply don’t get those benefits in cold or dark climates.


Supporting the Local Community

When you shop local, a large percentage of your purchase stays in the community. In contrast, if you choose a national chain to do your photographs, the majority of the funds leave the community. When you support local businesses in Decatur or the rest of Atlanta, you help to make activities such as the Decatur Arts Festival, the Decatur Book Festival, Concerts in the Square, craft beer festivals, and countless other events possible. By “shopping” local, you also contribute to the vibrancy of the community as a whole.


When thinking about maternity photography, Atlanta, GA, families should choose James Hill Photography. We are a husband-wife team who meet a lot of clients when they’re doing maternity photography, and then, we become their family’s photographer for life. We also specialize in infant, family, and senior photography. To learn more or to set up a session, contact us today.
