Spring Update!

Hey guys! I committed to myself to blog more regularly in 2018 and clearly that is not happening. What can I say? As a working mom life sometimes happens. Now that March Madness is here I wanted to take a moment to update everyone on what is happening with Green Tangerine Photography this spring!

Pretty much everyone needs a professional head shot. Especially if you are a budding entrepreneur, artist, writer or philanthropist. This year I have met some amazing people who were ready to take their professional image to another level. Don't put it off any longer!

Happy 1st Birthday Avery!

I had this sweet, precious girl as a newborn and she came all the way back from Denver to see me for her first birthday! What a dream Happy Birthday Princess!

Happy 1st Birthday Maverick!

Happy Birthday Maverick...or Mavi as his family endearingly calls him. He is absolutely as soft and sweet as he looks. Initially we were going to do a basketball themed session but this actually fit so much better. Maverick was a joy and a perfect happy baby to capture.

Updates + Events

Good morning all! Happy Monday to you. I actually really love Mondays. I didn't used to but they have clearly worked their way to becoming my favorite day of the week. I can always get so much work done on Mondays and it is a fresh start to the week!

This week is especially exciting because I get to spend some time with Justin of JM Smith Design + Branding, answering questions about entrepreneurship and sharing my journey getting here. This is an intimate networking event for young entrepreneurs to be ignited, encouraged, and inspired by others who have fought through fear to pursue BOLDNESS in business.

I'll be sharing lots of information about the steps I took when I left my 9-5 and transitioned into successfully owning my own photography studio. Complete truth & transparency of what it takes and what it looks like to be an entrepreneur.

If you'd like to attend  you can purchase a ticket here:

Portland & Kehlani

I am a twin, some of you may not know that, lol. So naturally I have a soft spot for twins. These two lovely gals came in and my heart just spilled over. 

Portland (green eyes) was not having any of my shenanigans lol. It took her a while to warm up, almost to the end of the session. Kehlani was all smiles until she tipped over a few times and then she was tired. Over all we got some great shots and I am so thankful for their sweet, little joy.

These adorable outfits are from Baby Portrait Prop Shop I just love all of her things.

Thanks sweet girls! See you in March for your 1st birthday!

Thompkins Family

The gorgeous Thompkins Family stopped by for their family portraits. I took Christians Newborn portraits and was so happy to see his smiling bubbly face again! 

What a treat it was to capture everyone and they were so beautifully dressed for the fall!

Welcome Averi

Sweet Averi arrived on 9/24/2-16 and brought with her all the joy and happiness & sleepiness a newborn brings. Dad even passed out in the studio during her session.

Just 6lbs and full of personality she rocked her newborn session. So sweet and engaging I was so excited with all off her eye contact.

Thanks for coming by Averi! -

Happy 1st Birthday Sweet Skylar!

Skylar is easily one of the happiest, most joy filled babies I've met. She smiled and posed for me and made all of us laugh so intentionally. I truly enjoyed capturing her.

Mom did great choosing her outfits! So adorable.

Happy 1st birthday Skylar. Thanks for stopping by the studio! - Sasha

Sareda + Travis

Happy Hump day guys! So I posted one of these photos a couple weeks back and it went absolutely viral and I was so pleased! Sareda is such a sweet, down to earth mama and she absolutely rocked this session. 

I met Sareda years ago at LSU and admired her beauty and style for so long. I was so pleased to be able to capture her gorgeous maternity portraits. She selected her own maternity gown and color from Valerie over at Sewtrendy and it was definitely a great choice! We had LOTS of rain as most of you know so the setting for the session was a bit dramatic, however I think it was perfect for this look!

Baby Santana was delivered last week and will be in the studio this Friday! I look forward to sharing more gorgeous photos with you all!
