Review us on Google

Morning!

If you are a client of mine (past and/or present) and would like to do me a favor, could you please take a few minutes to leave a review on Google =)

90% of my inquiries come from Internet searches and I have spent years building my blog and SEO so that my page shows up when searching for a photographer. A review would help greatly!

Thank you!!

This quarantine has me doing all kinds of new things - check out my first ever blog post with my littlest love!

My first ever blog post for my own baby! This quarantine has given me the gift of extra time with the last baby in our house. I am completely guilty of not taking pictures of my children with my “work camera”. At home, convenience is usually what I opt for. When life goes back to normal, I am go...

Happy Friday! It is Friday, right?!

Normally I would be charging batteries and getting ready for work this weekend. I miss my clients and I miss zoning out behind the camera.

Honestly, I needed this change of pace. We have been so busy and have had little to no family time in years with my weekend work schedule. It has forced me to pull out my camera on my own children, something that I slack with and need to get better about.

I hope everyone is staying healthy. Maybe working on some changes of your own that you plan to implement once this quarantine is over. Personally, I will be making more time for my family and keeping my camera out to document it ❤️

My little man, James, is getting lots of new pictures lately!

My clients sometimes feel defeated when their little ones don't cooperate during a session.

Fear not fellow parents, even my own child gives me a stare down!

I hope everyone had the best Easter possible, I miss working and seeing all of my favorite little people ❤️

Elizabeth | Madisonville, Louisiana Newborn Photographer

March was the month of baby girls!

I can't find the right words for this post..

Elizabeth was the last session I had before the state shut down. I haven't worked in weeks and it just feels so odd. Having a super small business during this time is flat out scary. I don't fit into the small business that is the backbone of America, I can't offer an online shopping option or remind people to shop local and show support.

I am just sitting here hoping and praying that when all of this is over I can bounce back. I hope everyone is staying HOME and remains safe and healthy.

Leave Elizabeth some love, the comments and activity on my page can help keep me relevant and right now that is about all I can do =)

A late arrival left everyone waiting on this sweet girl to make her appearance. She was totally worth it! Her crib is soooo dreamy, I totally wish it was my bed! I just love in home sessions and getting to take sweet picures of babies in their room =) She couldn’t have any access to her hands, and...

Meet Avery!! She is soooo pretty and was the perfect little baby model, just love her newborn session!

Avery Kate made her grand debut on March 4. She is sweet as can be and I am so glad I got to snuggle her before all of the chaos going on now. She was beautiful in every color we used, her skin is just so pretty. I know her family is over the moon with this little angel baby. Read more

I have had nothing but baby girl newborn sessions lately, and I am NOT complaining! Sweet Lillian arrived on February 26 and stole the hearts of Mom, Dad and big brother!

I had such a wonderful time for this in home newborn session, such a sweet family! Lillian arrived right after Mardi Gras and extended the family’s celebrating by welcoming a new baby!! Big brother James was so gentle with her, it was precious to witness. Welcome to this big, crazy world sweet gir...

It feels so weird to be home on a Saturday and not at work!

Some early morning blogging, and I am almost caught up! Enjoy Brynn's six month session from a few weeks ago!!

Our “spring” is so unpredictable in Louisiana. Luckily we got a mostly warm sunny day for Brynn’s six month session. She loved playing with the flowers! So many big girl milestones – sitting, first teeth and her first pair of earrings. This sweet girl is a doll. That smile/smirk is adorable!...

Blogging previous sessions is keeping me semi occupied. I guess being behind wasn't such a bad thing after all, I get to work a little during this quarantine!

My sweet sweet Gideon has changed so much since his first birthday session. That leap from one year to eighteen months is filled with so much change and growth! He was so adorable and I just love that little personality of his. Read more

Clients - At this time I am following the state guideline for non essential business closures until April 13. Should this guideline get extended, I will follow the new date and be in touch accordingly. I have already reached out to everyone that had a session within this time frame.

Please stay home. Don't punish the people who are following the rules and staying quarantined. I want to get back to work ASAP. I need to get back to work ASAP!

I will not make any exceptions. I need my family to remain healthy. I realize this is an enormous inconvenience. I realize milestone sessions will be pushed back and for that I am so sorry. I am offering refunds for anyone that would prefer not to re-schedule.

Thank you for your understanding and for supporting my small business! You have no idea how much I appreciate you all.

xoxo

Attention Clients - after careful consideration I have decided to re-schedule all sessions for the next few weeks. I will re-evaluate as things change and be in touch with everyone that was on my schedule. This was not an easy decision and one that I have struggled with over the past few days. I apologize for the inconvenience. I truly just want what is best for your family and mine. With a small baby at home I feel it is important to limit my contact as much as possible.

I cherish all of my clients and honestly I am just too touchy to feel comfortable handling your babies/children! If you have had sessions with me, you know I will wipe your babies drool and snot without thinking twice 😜

I pray we all remain healthy and I appreciate you all so very much!

Spreading some cheer for all of us who are in a daze!

At the least this down time is giving me a chance to catch up on blogging; this little guy's session is from January. Happy 1st Birthday Micah!!!

Love this family, loved this session and location. This area never disappoints for colorful photos! As always, a year went by entirely too quick and Micah is a one year old big boy now. Read more

I have had a few clients wanting to see my newest little man and I will admit I slack terribly at taking his pictures. What was supposed to be his Christmas pictures, turned into nine month photos two months later. I forgot his shoes, a bottle and snacks at home!!

Everyone meet James. He is a firecracker and keeps us on our toes! Can't imagine life without him and I hope one day he lets us catch up on sleep!

Miles is ONE! He has been such a happy little guy, I am sad that his first year quickly came to an end!

Eight months looks adorable on this guy! His smile just screams cuteness, his personality is as big and cuddly as he looks. This sweet boy is such a joy to photograph. Added bonus that big brother tags along and I can see his sweet face too!! Read more

Happy Friday!

Adelaide's first birthday session is blogged, leave her some birthday love! I had entirely too many favorites!

That year went entirely too fast! Watching Adelaide grow from the little bity baby we put inside of a king cake, to a baby that was walking around the park and eating king cake was such a gift. She is sweet and smart, curious and just so happy. I have so many favorites of her one year session. Takin...

Is everyone still munching on king cakes?!

A few weeks ago Adelaide celebrated her first birthday ❤️ I had the honor of chasing her around City Park. Photographing her first year was such a joy, she is such a sweet little lady.

Charlotte | New Orleans Newborn Photographer

My social media updating is seriously slacking. I forgot what it is like to work from home with a little one (who is currently fussing at me while I type this).

Miss Charlotte is about 6 weeks old now! Her momma can reminisce of what she looked like as a brand new baby!!

Finally – a baby girl! I have been with this family for a few years now (literally annually) photographing each baby for the first year! I am so unbelievably excited to follow along for Charlotte’s first year. I can’t wait to watch her brothers with her. If it is anything like the glimpse I go...

Sharing this beautiful couple one more time! My page has been lacking activity so my reach is super low. This maternity session was so much fun!

A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of meeting this amazing couple. They are expecting a baby girl in March and can’t wait for her arrival! It was a beautiful evening at the lakefront and Kayla’s pregnancy glow was the perfect touch to their maternity session. I had a tough time deciding which im...

Talk about melt your heart into a puddle – these four boys were sweet as pie! So polite, very friendly and just all around won me over after five minutes into their session. I loved watching them interact with one another! I really enjoyed this session, super great family! Read more

It's a beautiful Monday! Still catching up on my blogging from November and December, always love my sessions with this family!!

It is always a joy to photograph this family! There are laughs, tons of genuine smiles and seriously a session that I look forward to every year. I have loved watching the kids grow and their relationship is so very sweet! Read more

Lots of sharing to catch up on now that Christmas is over and cards/gifts have been given!

There isn’t much to say that I haven’t already said about this family. Over the years they have been like a family to me and there isn’t a single day that I don’t thank my lucky stars that our paths crossed. Read more
