Spring Sessions | Savannah Family Photographer

Who else is excited that we can finally go to the beach again? I don’t know about you, but I have been there about five times this year already and I can’t wait for it to warm up even more to make memories at Savannah’s beaches and marshes.

If you are a young Savannah family and want to spend an evening with me at either one of my two favorite locations to make memories to remember for a lifetime, fill out the form below to receive all details about my Savannah family photography sessions. I offer these limited sessions only twice a year - Late Spring and late Fall!, with the locations being different in Fall (but who knows, maybe I’ll change my mind).

The spots are very limited, and on a first come, first serve basis.

Outfits for the whole family are included and I have an extra big selection for the smallest ones and mommies! You can conveniently pick them in an online gallery or come for a dress-up appointment to my studio.

I am always up-to-date with tides and weather forecast and have a few make-up dates, if the weather doesn’t play along. But even a little bit of dancing in the rain makes for a great session.

Motherhood Event in Richmond Hill, GA

Motherhood event.jpg

How lucky am I to be a Savannah Motherhood photographer? I had the privilege to connect and photograph so many sweet families in 2018 and what better way is there to say “thank you” than an event honoring The Story of Motherhood. This event will open to all AKP clients first, before it will open to the public.

The studio wardrobe will be available for you to use during your session, and there will be a surprise to take home. Not only that, but Dominique, our exclusive hair and make up artist has curated a hair and makeup option to match your sweet session experience. A braid, blush, and lashes can go a very long way in portraits, so that’s exactly what you can add-on.

I am so excited for this, and hope this makes your Mother’s Day even more special.

Breastfeeding Tips | Richmond Hill newborn photographers

beautiful mothers feeding their babies in photography studio richmond hill georgia

Nursing your baby is not an easy job. Everyone makes it seem effortless and a natural process, you’re supposed to know how to do it. But as a Savannah Newborn Photographer and mom of two, I’ve had lots of experience with trying to nurse my children. I’ve had lots of successes and some failures. Always keep in mind, that whether you decide that nursing is for you or not, a happy fed baby is the most crucial part.

I had a rough time nursing my first child and eventually decided formula would make me a happier and a more capable mom. When I became pregnant with my second child, I didn't even want to nurse her, because of the bad experience I had with my first baby. She naturally just started nursing right after birth, and I gave it a try, ending up having a super beautiful nursing relationship with my sweet baby.

Here are a few things I learned that helped me along the way.

It’s ok to ask for help.

If you give birth at a hospital or birth center, there are typically lactation consultants available on staff to help and answer your questions. Don’t be afraid to ask. Both you and your baby are learning how to nurse.

My sweet friend Christina (right in picture below) from Latch onto Health is a doula and lactation consultant. She offered to give you some tips during our newborn photography session in RIchmond Hill, Georgia if her schedule lines up with mine. Please let me know, if you would like to take advantage of this sweet offer, so I can contact her in time.

There’s also the Savannah Baby Cafe if you need help nursing. Please see this video for more information about their services in our area. If you aren’t local, you can look on the main website for a group local to you.

“It doesn't hurt.”

Not true. Most woman experience pain in the beginning. It can take a moment to get used to breastfeeding, but once you get used to it, the soreness goes away. If you experience intense sharp pain, I recommend talking to your doctor. There could be lots of reasons why you're in pain and getting help can get to the root of the problem.

Nipple Cream is your best friend.

I once slacked on the nipple cream. Bad decision. After that, I made sure I always had some with me. My favorite is Lasinoh lanolin. I tried other creams that aren’t animal-based, but they didn’t work for me. Nipple cream keeps your nipples from drying, cracking, and bleeding.

Meet your best friend’s best friend, nursing pads.

Leaking isn’t fun. Along with my trusty tube of lanolin, I also kept nursing pads with me. There are the disposable kind as well as re-usable cloth options.

A good nursing bra is like hitting the jackpot.

Do yourself a favor and buy a nursing bra. I preferred underwired ones, they just made me feel so much more comfortable. Investing in a good nursing bra was well worth it. European or Australian brands are great, too, like Cake Lingerie, if you’re having trouble finding ones that work.

So here they are, my breastfeeding tips, the things that worked best for me.
