Handcraft Films is a family photography studio based in Athens, Georgia. We specialize in family, newborn, baby, and maternity photography.
Photographs are memories.
They remind us of all the little details that we so easily forget, they tell the stories of our lives in a way that words just can't describe, and they mark the most profound and precious moments in our lives. Below are a few from just after my daughter was born.
I share this because I want you to know that for me, photography is personal. These pictures of us in the hospital aren't posed or picture perfect. I'm pretty sure I'm 30 lbs. of extra swollen there... but I don't care. That picture was taken seconds after my little girl was born, and it's probably the most precious one to me of all. Look at the awe on her dad's face. That's real. And to me, it's perfect.
Capturing the real you.
My goal will always be to create something genuine and personal to you. You don't need to be a model or even feel comfortable in front of a camera. That's my job! I want your photos to feel like you, so I work hard help you relax, have fun, and just be yourselves during your session.
What to expect.
I like to think of it as if I'm just a friend with a camera, hanging out with you and your family. And hopefully by the end of it, we will be! Don't worry about 'what to do'. I will guide you the whole way to make sure that our moments unfold naturally. We will chat over email and the phone to make sure we are a good fit. We’ll discuss what you’re thinking for your session . . . and how I can provide that for you. We’ll talk about how to prepare, what to wear and what will happen after the session. By the time I bring my camera out, we will have talked all about your hopes for the session and for your family… so, it really does feel more like hanging out with a friend (who happens to have a camera) than a photo shoot.
I could not be happier with her work! Beth took the best photos of my family, and we plan to use her again in a few months for holiday photos! She did an amazing job taking candid photos of my two children, and the kids loved her! I would highly recommend and plan to use over and over again in the future.
Beth is amazing. She takes amazing pictures in a very natural and candid fashion. My toddler was not having a good day and she somehow managed to give us beautiful shots. She is patient and creative. Will absolutely use her again!!! Thank you Beth and Handcraft Films and Photography for capturing our family so perfectly!!!
Beth is AMAZING! She captured two of the most special times in our lives and did so perfectly. Beth made us feel at ease during both of our sessions and took her time to ensure she captured every detail. All the photos were perfect but the fresh 48 video blew me away. During the short hospital session Beth was able to capture all the sounds and movements of our little one that cannot be captured in photos alone. The video is priceless and will help us remember those sweet moments with our newborn son. We will use Beth over and over again-highly recommend!!!!
She made our photo session so much fun! With 4 young children, I thought it would be impossible to get photos of everyone smiling/looking at once. But Beth kept us moving and laughing and was able to bring out everyone's personalities! Gorgeous outcomes.
After the session.
I know you're super excited to see your images, and I’m just as excited to get them to you! Within a few days I’ll send you a sneak peek - to hold you over until your full gallery is ready. You can expect to have your fully-edited digital gallery within two weeks. Your online gallery will be available to directly download and share your favorite images. If you like, I am happy to help you order any prints, frames, or albums of your images. I feel very strongly that you should adorn your walls with these amazing moments. We live in an age where it so easy for them to be stored on a hard drive and forgotten. Prints and albums also make the most amazing gifts for loved ones.
