Professional photographer Dana Dawes specializes in capturing life's most cozy moments, and her experience shooting families, babies, pregnant mothers-to-be, and nervous downstairs neighbors of mothers-to-be has left her with a keen ability to reflect, through pictures, the individual personality of each person or family. Your Groupon is good for an hour-long photo shoot; you can choose to come to her well-lit studio for a more formal, 19th-century tin-type pose or summon her to the grounds of your manor or favored scenic vista for a more casual session in a natural setting (up to a one-hour driving distance from downtown Atlanta). Bring the family for a series of candids, opt for a single reel of your newborn son, or capture your little sis on film before she goes away to college. You'll be left with a DVD of all the shoot's images, an 8”x10” of your chosen photo, and 20% off all additional studio-printed images.

Hour-long photo sessions with Montenero's sensualist shutterbugs yield tasteful, alluring images. Sprightly retro pin-ups recall a time when exposed knees were thought to incite Communism, while more concupiscent boudoir photos awaken subjects' latent sultriness while they pout, preen, and lounge in lingerie. Budding vixens can choose between either a shoot at the photographers' Lawrenceville studio or one within the comfort of their own homes, finally unlocking the eroticism lurking within old leather recliners or double-basin bathroom sinks. Basic retouching services are included with the deal, which is personalized according to each subject's areas of confidence and results in an 8"x10" print.
A camera has always been a part of Courtney's life. That’s due in part because she comes from a family of photographers, of which she’s the third generation to practice the art. She started CG&L Photography to transform what had long been her photographic hobby and passion into a career. Armed with the knowledge of her forebears and her own studies, she went ahead with her dream and in the process discovered her talent for shooting nature and newborns.
Throughout her photographic repertoire, Courtney is known for exploring many styles and producing unique shots. Clients may see her employing traditional portraiture techniques for work with babies, a photojournalistic bent with families or weddings, and a generally fun and funky style with anything from nature to boudoir shoots.
