Clients Reviews- Atlanta newborn photographer

“Ilona was absolutely wonderful. The environment was cozy and warm for our new baby and she was very patient getting just the right pictures. There is a good window of time for each session which is great for how unpredictable babies can be. Our pictures turned out better than I could have hoped for and I have gotten so many compliments on the quality of the announcements. My only regret is that I didn’t do maternity photos but plan to next time!” Carrie S., Alpharetta, Ga

“Our only experience so far with Ilona was a newborn session.  She is fun and easy to work with. She clearly loves what she does and that shows through in her sessions and in the quality of her photos. The baby pictures she took are amazing and something we will always cherish having. We can’t wait to bring our son in for 1 year shots!”
Caitie, Atlanta, Ga

“Feeling comfortable with a stranger holding your brand new, delicate, precious baby is not an easy thing to do. I was lucky enough to learn about Ilona Hastings Photography from a friend of mine who had nothing but wonderful things to say about both Ilona & the quality of her photography. My 12 day old baby, husband & I also had a fantastic experience and amazing photos we’ll be able to cherish & share forever. If you’re looking for an awesome photographer who can also calm a new baby & new parents Ilona Hastings is the way to go.”

“Ilona is absolutely fabulous! We had just moved to the area, and I called her from the hospital to see if she could fit us in for newborn portraits. She gladly worked us in the next week. Our session with Ilona was wonderful. She had a variety of newborn photo props from headbands, to blankets, baskets, hats and more which made for beautiful photo opportunities. She was so sweet and soothing with our daughter and took her time to get the best possible photos. Our session was relaxing because Ilona was so professional and knew exactly what to do, so my husband and I sat back and enjoyed watching! When we got the images back we were amazed. She did an outstanding job capturing our little girl, and we are so grateful that we will have these precious pictures for years to come. Look no further, Ilona is it!:)

“Just wanted to say thank you so much for everything.  You are SO talented and we are honored to have had the twins newborn portraits with you.  Top notch experience from start to finish!!!” Facebook Wall Post

“Top notch experience from start to finish! All finances were expedited online. Even though my twins came early, I had no problems getting a session booked. Ilona is “Johnny on the spot” when it comes to emails and responding. She is very thorough and well equipped and prepared in her knowledge. Our experience during the photo shoot was so wonderful. I had to take extra time to prepare bottles and feed the twins and change diapers and such and Ilona was very patient and understanding. She even had some extra diapers!!! Ilona was very gentle and loving with my twins. She has the knowledge and experience of a veteran photographer. She was sensitive to any and all of my concerns. She had a comfortable area for my husband and son to wait while the shoot took place. I honestly couldn’t have asked for a better experience and I am so glad my husband found her website online. I have read through other reviews and I agree with all the reviews I read. It’s true….she’s pretty darn awesome!!!!!:))))))” Michaela, Atlanta, Ga

“Ilona is such a gem! I worked with Ilona Hastings for both my maternity and newborn sessions, and I cannot say enough good things about her photography and her professionalism. She worked hard to fit all of my ideas for both sessions into her shots and went above and beyond to create wonderful images for us. I was impressed with her return time on the images and how quickly she had sneak peeks up. It was clear that Ilona loves what she’s doing; she showed genuine excitement over the images she was capturing, which really put me and my husband at ease. Most of all, I was impressed by the care she took to photograph our newborn son, Benjamin. She came well prepared with many backdrops, props, and a heating fan to keep him warm. I will treasure the images she captured forever, because babies grow so fast! We cannot wait to use her for many family sessions in the future!” Bridget, Alpharetta, Ga

“There were just too many amazing pictures to choose from! You are too talented!! Thank you again so much for the incredible job you did! Your photos are precious treasures we will always have to cherish!!” Tanya, Johns Creek, Ga

“Highly recommend! Ilona has an incredible skill and does a fantastic job capturing the most precious images you can ever imagine! She makes you instantly feel comfortable and has a wonderful knack for handling newborns and comforting them…I felt so at ease. She is clearly very dedicated to her work and gets as excited as the parents to catch that perfect shot…which there were plenty of! We have used several other photographers which we were also pleased with but Ilona is by far the absolute best and I couldn’t have made a better choice in contacting her! The only difficulty I had was narrowing it down to choose which photos I wanted so I bought all of them on cd!” Vanessa, Atlanta, Buckhead, Ga

“We chose Ilona Hastings Photography for our first child’s newborn photography session, and we are so glad we did! First, Ilona is super well organized and we appreciated her thoroughness in booking a session and sending details for how to make our photography session successful. At our session, Ilona was a true baby whisperer. Our slightly fussy little man slept soundly for most of the session, as Ilona soothed him back to sleep. As a result, we have tons of wonderful photographs. She captured amazing expressions, such as little smiles, a pout, and an adorable grumpy face, and adorable poses. We are so thankful to have beautiful photographs of our newest addition. Thank you, Ilona!” Lindsay, Atlanta, Ga

“I just received the gallery of our pictures from Ilona Hastings Photography. I am awestruck looking through the images of our little family. I cannot believe how much my baby has grown, how handsome he is and how much he reminds me of his daddy. In the past, I have really questioned the value of spending money on a professional photographer vs. an inexpensive studio. Looking at our pictures, I get it. Thanks Ilona for perfectly capturing everything I love about our life. ?” Becky, Sandy Springs, Ga

“Ilona Hastings is FABULOUS!! I cant say enough good things about her. I came in with all these ideas and she found a way to do every single one of them. She even took extra time to accomplish all that I wanted! My family and I had the hardest time choosing which ones to buy because we wanted them all!! I cant wait for her to take my baby’s newborn pictures. I know I will love them as well!” Marissa, Marietta, Ga

“Ilona Hastings is not only an extremely talented photographer, but she is such a sweet person who really cares about her clients. I recently had a baby, and she did our newborn session, a family session when baby was 4 months, and a Christmas shoot. I will continue to use her for years to come as baby grows up! Highly Recommended!!!” Courtney, Duluth, Ga

“Ilona is a talented photographer and does an awesome job soothing newborn babies. My husband and I have gotten numerous compliments on the quality of the photos that she took, and we look forward to having her capture future moments as our family grows. Highly recommend her!” Ayanna, Atlanta, Ga

“We had Ilona take photos for our son’s first birthday, which included a cake smash session. She took so many pictures to make sure she had great ones we could choose from. I especially liked the fact that she was very patient with my one year old and took her time with him. Pictures came out great!” Lana, Kennesaw, Ga

“Ilona Hastings Photography rocks!  I was so excited to win a newborn photo session on her facebook page – I’ve never had a professional photo session other than at a studio like JC Penney or Sears (wherever I had coupons)… and it was awesome! Ilona was so great to work with – she made my whole family feel welcome and relaxed in her home studio, she was very professional, and absolutely amazing with the kids! And I am SO in love with the beautiful photos we got!  Thank you Ilona!!”Ali, Alpharetta, Ga

“We have had Ilona take photos of our kids three times and if we still lived in N.C. she would be getting many more phone calls. She is super easy to work with, very understanding about kids and their moods, and creative. I will cherish the pictures from our photo shoots forever, they are some of my favorite pictures of my kids and us. I would recommend Ilona to anyone!” Lauren, Atlanta, Ga

“Ilona photographed my daughter at 10 months and 1 yr. of age…both times doing a great job really capturing my daughter’s personality. My daughter has a congenital eye disorder that causes constant movement of her eyes, which Ilona very patiently worked with in our sessions. Ilona is very organized and communicates well, always keeping me up-to-date. I highly recommend Ilona and will request her to photograph my daughter in the future!” Erin, Atlanta, Ga
