Atlanta Newborn Photographer | Fresh 48 Hospital Session

My dear friend, my hair stylist of about 12 years (I mean seriously, how could we not become close friends after getting to spend QT together every 6 weeks or so?) just had her baby!!  A baby girl!  We were all so excited because Elita herself is gorgeous and is such an expert on all things GIRL – including hair, makeup, fashion, etc.  She just HAD to have a girl.  She already has the second love-of-her life in her 3 year old son, a sweet, spunky Ninja warrior, Connor.  Even though baby Julia came into the world a whole month early, she was perfectly healthy, how amazing is that?  Praise God!  And I love that she was born on September 11th – a reason to be grateful and joyful on a day that mostly brings sadness.  It’s my optimistic belief that children born on Sept. 11th have a special calling in this world – a divine command to make the world a brighter place, and if anyone is capable of pulling that off in fabulous fashion, it’s the daughter of two amazing, kind and loving individuals.  And wow, y’all…is she ever beautiful!

I want to share a favorite image here, and will work on finishing the rest of them soon and post them all to my main business website (Atlanta Family Photographer | Crane Creek Photography) as soon as I can.  Here’s one I just love:

Hi, I’m Amanda – thank you so much for taking the time to stop by my personal blog.  You can see more about my photography business on my main website.   I’m a family photographer based in Suwanee, GA but I’ve focused my work over the last four years on newborn photography.  I realized last year that the photos that spoke most to me – that made my heart sing, were not the ones with posing and props…but the ones I took in the hospital.  There’s just something amazing about documenting a newborn’s first hours of life.  I know from having three babies of my own, each c-sections requiring a 4 day stay, that my time at the hospital was a complete blur.  I wish I had more photos of those early days.  I also adore documentary-style family photography and have moved away from traditional portraiture to capturing a family authentically and comfortably.  No posing or bribes with fruit snacks!  I feel so blessed to be chosen to be a family’s newborn photographer – it’s such an incredible honor, one that I take so seriously and am so grateful for.  For more info, feel free to contact me  I serve hospitals around NE Atlanta, including Emory Johns Creek Hospital, Gwinnett Medical Center in Lawrenceville, NE Georgia Regional Hospital in Gainesville, and of course Northside Hospital in Atlanta.

Amanda Myers of Crane Creek Photography is an Atlanta newborn photographer, specializing in birth photography, Fresh 48 hospital sessions (like the one featured above), traditional posed newborn portrait sessions, and family photojournalism, such as a Day in the Life (of a home with a newborn) and Newborn Homecoming sessions.  Newborn sessions are typically booked months in advance – all you need is your due date.  Hospital photo sessions are commonly added to a traditional newborn photo session.   Amanda is an on-location photographer, which means that she travels to her client’s homes or location of their choosing.  For traditional newborn sessions, she brings a small mountain of set-up gear, including a backdrop stand, blankets, props, baskets, accessories – everything needed to capture your newborn baby and your family in the comfort of your own home.  No need to stress about arriving to a studio on time, make sure you’ve packed everything….Not to mention the chaos of having older siblings stuck in a studio for a couple hours, or having to nurse outside your comfort zone.  She brings everything to you!  Her unique blend of traditional portraits and documentary-style photography has made Amanda one of the most sought after Atlanta newborn photographers.  If you’re expecting, don’t delay!  Contact Amanda today at or cell/text her at 404-838-8997.  (And remember – maternity photo sessions are best done during the second trimester.  One more reason to call today!)

I love this one – one of the very first photos of all three siblings together.


Hi I’m Amanda and I love celebrating and documenting a family’s biggest moments.  That’s why I am passionate about newborn photography.  I offer maternity photo session, both in modern portrait style and documentary-style.  I offer birth photography and Fresh 48 hospital sessions.  I’m an on-location photography, which means I don’t have a studio, but come to your location.  For newborns, I typically come out to your home and bring my set-up and props for my traditional styled sessions.  I also love family photojournalism and enjoy natural, documentary-style sessions.  I’m just a fly on the wall, snapping away, capturing moments, smiles, laughter, emotions, connections.  No posing.  No saying cheese.  Just your family living an everyday, extraordinary life.   I also offer a baby milestone package, to document your child throughout their first year.  Be sure to contact me early – I tend to book up with newborns months in advance and can only take a limited number of newborn sessions monthly.   I hope you’ll take a look around and reach out, and let me know what type of session you’re considering.  I’d love an opportunity to be your newborn photographer.   Thanks!
