Hi, I’m Martha.  I love to have a camera in my hands, and I especially love to take pictures of children. 

I’m the mother of two great little girls, who were my original inspiration and continue to be some of my favorite subjects.

Children are precious and adorable, and I know it’s a cliché, but the time goes by so very fast.  Every stage is unique (and fleeting).  Helping people capture and preserve these memories is what I love most about being a photographer. 

And, well, if I’m being totally honest, I think sometimes cute pictures of our children can help get us through the day.  When they’ve finally gone to bed, and you see a picture of their sweet face or beautiful smile, the memories of the temper tantrums and skipped naps fade away a little more quickly.  Am I right?

I grew up in Atlanta, left to go to college in Boston, and then came back home to Atlanta to be near my family.  I love Atlanta and its gorgeous seasons, and I keep discovering more of the fabulous locations it has to offer for photo shoots. 

While l’ve always enjoyed photography, it wasn’t until I had children of my own that it became a passion. 

And, that’s how I ended up here.

My style is simple and clean. 

My pictures are colorful and vibrant. 

My method is to do what makes your children happy.  If they will be posed and smile for the camera, then great!  (And, wow, you are lucky.) 

If not, that’s fine too.  Either way, we will usually end up playing a funny game or singing a silly song, and I'll take pictures while they are truly happy and having fun.  This often leads to some of my favorite photos.

In addition to photographing children and families, I also offer newborn, maternity, engagement, senior portrait, and headshot sessions.  

I do most of my sessions outdoors, in your home, or in my home studio. 

My goal with every photo session is to capture moments my clients will treasure for years to come.
