Atlanta Newborn and Family Photographer

Posts by Sarah

Baby Adrienne was so perfect and I loved every minute during the session. Thank you Cara for Choosing OliveTree and DuPree Photography as your Buckhead Newborn Photographer for your firstborn portraits!

Baby Adrienne

I was able to see Baby Adrienne when she was about a week old. Normally, babies are pretty sleepy, but Adrienne gave all of us a run for our money that day! She did calm down and sleep enough to get some great pictures of her, mom, and dad in their home.

We were able to incorporate the gorgeous bow wrap provided by mom and family blankets on the black of the couch. We even took pictures of Adrienne in a dress worn by Cara when she was a baby!

We typically take newborn portraits when your little one is between 5-14 days. You get a fully stylized session where we provide all props and outfits for you. We love including precious heirlooms like a wedding gown, baptism outfit, or a treasured stuffed animal to make your portraits personalized to you. We even welcome pets!

The Stancils are very dear friends of our family. Geoff, my husband, has know Preston and Ashley since high school for Ashley and college for Preston. I met them when I was dating Geoff back in 2003. Ashley and I quickly connected and we’ve stayed in touch since Geoff and I moved to Orlando in 2008. I love these pictures because they create memories for years to come. Thank you Preston and Ashley for choosing OliveTree and DuPree Photography as your Dacula Family Photographer!

Let’s start with the pictures from the whole family!

Hugs from Grandmothers are the best!

After the whole family, time was focused on Ashley, Preston, and the girls. Preston kept everyone laughing despite the fact that it was unexpectedly freezing and everyone was super cold!

So beautiful!
These two are about to celebrate their 15th wedding anniversary!
All the laughs!!!

I am so grateful to have the opportunity to spend time with the Stancil Family as their Dacula family photographer!

I was thrilled when the Song’s choose OliveTree and DuPree Photography as their North Atlanta Family Photographer. Chris and Christina decided to give their family portraits a formal look and I absolutely love the colors they choose!

The Song Family was so much fun to photograph! Emmie Mae and Charlie Grace are twins and absolutely LOVED posing for the camera. They smiled and looked at the camera like pros. I love that they both have a bit of mom and dad in each of them!!!

As your North Atlanta Family Photographer, I like to make sure that mom and dad get special pictures with the children, as well as just the two of them. It’s so easy to forget to get pictures with your special someone when your always running around in the day to day hustle and bustle that’s called life. It’s important to remember each other and take time to get a few pictures together.

I was so grateful when these new parents choose OliveTree and DuPree Photography as their Cumming, GA Newborn Photographer! This sweet girl came into the world full of squishy chubbiness and happy smiles. It was such a joy to work with Anna, her parents, and their amazing chocolate lab Judson.

Anna’s room was full of primary colors so we incorporated those into her session. She was also born close to Christmas so mom wanted some Christmas influences so she could send a joint Christmas card/Birth Announcement to friends and family! Dogs can be tricky with little babies, but Judson was so sweet and the ultimate portrait dog! The beautiful tutu and headband was a gift from Anna’s grandmother and I’m so happy mom wanted to incorporate it into her newborn session. Thank you for allowing me to be your Cumming, GA Newborn Photographer!

Hi! Welcome to the OliveTree and DuPree Photography Blog page. My name is Sarah Van Bueren and I am your Atlanta Newborn and Family Photographer. I am new (again) to the Metro Atlanta area. I grew up in Central Florida, went to the University of Florida (GOOOO Gators) and graduated with a Masters in Speech-Language Pathology. After grad school, I moved to Atlanta, met the handsome guy in the picture below and we were married a year later. I spent the next 12 years working as a Speech-Language Pathologist in school systems in Georgia and eventually Florida. After moving to Florida to be closer to my family, Geoff and I introduced our first baby girl into the world and eventually our second. After my youngest was one, I decided to stay at home with my girls so I could spend more time with them. Florida was amazing and we thought we’d never leave but my husband was given a job opportunity that we couldn’t say no to. We said our goodbyes, packed up our house and moved to Dallas, Texas. That’s a very brief history….I will tell you that I love God, my husband, my girls, and family too. I also love lifting weights, eating, spending time with friends and family, the occasional run, the pool, the sun, and the mountains.

By now you might be thinking “How does this eventually lead to being an Atlanta Newborn and Family Photographer?” Well, my love and passion for photography had been developing all along. I knew that I took pictures of everyday life in my head. I love the little moments, the relationships between friends and family, and everyday architecture. These were the things I would “click and edit” in my head. A book was what made it all come together for me. I’m actually reading it again right now.  Italian for Beginners by Kristen Harmel. Read It. I know you’ll love It. Cat, the main character, is a photographer. Not a professional photographer, but an accountant that loves photography and happens to be amazing at it. I won’t give anything away in case you actually choose to read it, but in Cat’s journey to becoming a professional photographer, she learns to find herself, overcome her fears, and embrace her strengths. Her photography grows as she learns to do that.

My journey has been similar. It’s been about taking risks, failing (something I HATE doing), learning and growing. Moving to Texas brought me in contact with the amazing Jessica Bookout at Lovely Fitzgerald Photography. If you’re in Dallas, check her out. I learned so much about the art and business of photography while working with Jessica. She also happens to be a wonderful friend. Eventually, God led us to Atlanta, GA and my passion for photography continues to grow. So that’s a bit about me. I promise that future blog posts will be full of cute faces, squishy babies, glowing moms-to-be and fun families! I look forward to being your Atlanta Newborn and Family Photographer!

Here are some pictures of my family and my girls.
