Ever worry that your child’s most magical moments are memorialized merely on the camera roll of your iPhone? Do your family a favor—step away from the smart phone and hire a pro to document their deliciousness in a more permanent form. Skip the posed studio portraits and check out one of these awesome Atlanta-area photographers who employ nature light and a candid approach to capture your kid in a flash.

Laura Negri Photography

As a mother of two young boys, photographer Laura Negri Childers just gets it. "Since becoming a mom, I now understand what parents are looking for when capturing their little ones. It's those little expressions, sparkling eyes, the way they run, or tilt their head back when they laugh that we never want to forget. I learn daily from my own boys about what makes kids laugh, and I often use these silly tactics and jokes when photographing children. It sounds cliche, but children really do grow up so fast, and I love that I get to capture these moments in time for each client to remember them by!"
