Sonya Davis; Owner, Lead Photographer

Sonya Davis Photography is a family operated business.  I am the owner and lead photographer and my three sons are my teammates.  I have been professionally capturing maternity and newborn memories for five years and love it. I love seeing a new mom’s reaction as I pose her little one during his first photo session and hearing the uhhhhs and ahhhhs when viewing maternity portraits. It gives me joy to see a Mommy to Be grasp in surprise of how beautiful she looks in her maternity images.  All of the insecurities she had about her changing body dissipates.

Oftentimes, I hear, “why do you charge so, you are not doing much.” or “My cousin has a nice camera and can take the pictures for less money.”  Like the old saying goes, “you get what you pay for”.  You must be ready to spend money if you are looking for quality long lasting products and above average services.   Some people take the cheaper route but soon conclude that bad photography is even more expensive in the long run.  If you don’t like the images you will come to realize that your time and money have been wasted.  In most circumstances there is not a second chance to capture the glow of a Mommy to Be or those sleepy newborn moments.  When you commission me, a professional photographer, you are paying for my expertise, talent, and time to ensure that your images will be captured perfectly and professionally the first time.

I have 17 years of experience as a teacher so I have patience and great communication skills.  I absolutely love working with people.  One of my goals is to make moms feel at home so I have an all-inclusive, in-home studio in Snellville.  By all-inclusive, I mean all you bring is yourself and baby.  I supply gowns, fabrics, makeup artists, and hair stylists for maternity sessions and backgrounds; outfits, fabrics, wraps, and props for newborn sessions.  Oh yeah lets not forget the comfortable couch, clean restrooms, snacks and bottled water.  I offer a professional yet memorable and personable experience where you are treated as a member of the family and not just a client.  To make sure I thoroughly capture the best images maternity portrait sessions are up to three hours long and newborn portrait sessions are up to two hours.  Your family is the most important thing in the world and I know you want portraits you can treasure and hold close to your heart for the rest of your life.   Most clients are so excited to see the memories in which I have captured that I post a Sneak Peek from their session within 24 hours.  Additionally, I offer a quick turn around in preparing your images for viewing in two or less weeks.
