Hello, my name is Naomi Hopkins.
Welcome to my little world! I am a Georgia girl through and through, and love capturing the beauty our state has to offer. Having been raised in a family of photographers and artists, you could say being a photographer runs in my blood. But my deep rooted desire to capture memories was set ablaze after giving birth to my daughter at 26 weeks.
After struggling with fertility issues to get pregnant, we finally found out that our rainbow baby was on her way. It was a difficult pregnancy - I had to spend months in the hospital before she was even born. When Azlyn arrived, we spent three months in the NICU with her (watch her birth story here!). She was so tiny, that I was even able to dress her in American Girl Doll clothes! I invested in a camera to capture her growth as we prayed for the day we could bring her home. I soon learned the value of being able to have memories - like a maternity session or a Fresh 48 session - frozen in time for me to look back on. As I spent months photographing my own daughter, my love for the art just grew and grew… So much so that it exploded into one of the greatest blessing I could have ever asked for! It’s even allowing my family grow, by helping us fund our adoption!
I absolutely love being able to capture the moments you want to last a lifetime and it will never be a privilege I take for granted. Many of us have heard the phrase “a picture is worth 1,000 words.” It’s so true! I am constantly amazed how quickly our world changes. Time passes and days go on - one thing we can always treasure is those sweet moments captured in photographs. Take the time to slow down and create a beautiful moments that will last forever. It’s an honor to help you make these memories with your family.
