Melissa Whittington

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 + Family)

$

695

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, 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.
