WHAT TO EXPECT

We'll start communicating with you over video or in-person interview to see if it's the right fit. This will allow me to get familiarized with your home (if home birth), your Families needs, birth plan, answer questions, offer advice and referrals, leave with an organized plan for birth and time leading up to it. Here I will capture up to 5 documentary style “before” photos. We'll discuss your personal boundaries for being photographed during labor. When the big day arrives, I am there to guide your family through the process, support and advocate for mama and baby, assist with positions and comfort. Mama and Baby's safety are most important. Also, I will be documenting the birth and all of the emotions (love bomb) that comes with it. Being part of the birth team allows me as a photographer to be sensitive to everyone's needs while documenting the experience in a tasteful and captivating way. I typically stay for 1-2 hours after birth to ensure that everyone is taken care of before leaving the family to enjoy their new member. After, with a post partum visit, I assist with settling in, check on baby and family. Offer tools to help everyone support Mom so that she can care for baby, Lactation support and up to 5 documentary style photos.

I'm Melissa Whittington, photographer and creator behind the lens of Rainbows and Hot Fudge PhotographyMy love for photography all started in Atlanta, 1996, where I learned all about 35 mm film and discovered my love for developing my own images. My passion is creating photographs that warm your heart and make you say, “Ohh! That's the shot! My approach to photography is a collaboration of love and authenticity that tells your family's story.I believe that portrait sessions should be fun. I create unique and timeless images in an environment that feels more like playing than posing. Especially, when it comes to working with children. With every session, I encourage my clients to just be them! Wild, screaming, untamed or calm, or cool and collective - I'm in paparazzi mode and aim to capture all your favorite smiles and faces!

Rainbows & Hot Fudge Photography's Newborn Studio Session (Baby Only)

$ 350

Your baby's story in the world has begun. The first few days are the most precious and your new family member will continue to change rapidly each day. When you arrive at my home studio, my dog Zappa and I will be there to greet you. He waits outside while we come into the cozy waiting area. We will take a moment to get comfortable, then I get acquainted with baby. You can watch as we work in the studio or rest-assured in the waiting area. The families that I work with consistently call me “the baby whisperer.” This is because I am “baby led.” I know and understand them and I trust them to communicate with me their needs and boundaries. We work together in the session with your baby's safety and comfort as the top priority. I'll consult with you about your style and color preferences while you relax and enjoy the show. I love this time with families as it gives everyone an opportunity to decompress after birth and the whirlwind that can come with welcoming your precious gift into the world. Parents and siblings love to choose from the variety and fun and beautiful props, wraps and baby buckets in my studio.
