Thank you for visiting Natalie Thompson Photography! I'm so glad you're here!
I'm Natalie, a professional photographer based in Augusta, GA, as well as an Augusta native! I'm a wife to the best guy around and a mama to 3 sweet boys + a golden doodle!
Before I was a photographer, I was a Labor & Delivery RN, a job that I LOVED and still miss (sometimes)! My passion for photography was born right after my oldest son. While on maternity leave, I took my DSLR camera out of the box (where it had been for months), learned how to use it, and quickly became obsessed. I photographed my baby's every move...his first steps, his smiles, his chunky baby rolls, the meals, the baths...everything! Photography became a way for me to freeze the beautiful, ordinary, everyday moments that pass far too quickly and preserve them forever. For 5 years, I split my work time between L&D and photography, but in 2019, I said goodbye to L&D to pursue this passion of mine full-time! Thankfully, I'm still getting my baby fix and keeping my swaddle skills strong, and nothing makes me happier than getting to go back to L&D to photograph a birth, Fresh 48 Session, or siblings meeting for the first time!
My style is classic & timeless. I love all things bright & white, light & airy, and believe that less is truly more when it comes to photography. Real moments & vivid details are what I love most!
I feel blessed beyond measure to be doing what I love! Most of all, I cherish the time I get to spend with my clients and their families. It is my hope that the photographs from their sessions perfectly capture the essence of who their family is in that exact moment and help them tell their story. I'd love to help you tell yours too!
