You know who sometimes you meet someone and you know immediately that you want to be friends? Isn't it weird how that works? Well that's how I felt when I met Amanda. My friend Jessica from Happily Hughes met her first through Instagram, and when I met her she was 37 weeks pregnant and I asked how she was feeling and she said "I'm miserable" and I knew we would get along. Well it also turns out that Amanda is the amazing photographer behind Amanda Nicole Photography who specializes in maternity and newborn photography. Did I mention she's really, really good?
Oh, my sweet baby Tripp at only 8 days old! You better believe that's going on his birth announcement. And he was being impossible that day! Wouldn't sleep, wouldn't pose, wouldn't really do anything - and Amanda still managed to get the shots that I'm going to frame and cherish forever.
Seriously this is my newest favorite picture of me. And just so you know Tripp peed through this outfit and all over my shirt about 5 seconds after this shot was taken. It was lovely.
Amanda Nicole Photography is based out of Roswell/Cumming (right outside of Atlanta, GA) and she takes pictures all over the Atlanta area, although the newborn studio is currently in Roswell and soon to be in Cumming. You can check out her online galleries: newborn, maternity, babies/kids and family. And check out the maternity shots by her I posted on Instagram here and here. I'll do a whole post on the maternity shots in the near future, because it somehow made sense chronologically to do the newborn pictures first. I really think both newborn and maternity pictures are completely worth the time/effort/investment. All of these pictures are going to be hung in our home and put in many different scrapbooks and looked at forever. I just love them so much and they make me incredibly happy.
