HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Hey everyone!  It has been a while! Between mommy duties, business duties, and capturing back to back sessions of my amazing clients everything has been super busy! I hope everyone had a great Holiday season!

A few updates for the New Year! 

Did you know that you can now book your holiday portrait session in advance? Last Year was such an amazingly busy year with holiday sessions booking up by August. If you know you want holiday or family portrait sessions take advantage of early booking offered to current clients.

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!

Shagari Meets New Orleans

I cannot express how proud I am of this guy. He has been producing some amazing work lately and I was more than happy to help bring his vision to life for his updates head shots. We traveled to New Orleans for the day and walked the french quarter finding the best spots to stop and pose.

Knowing Shagari and his "Ricky Bobby hands" I thought posing him may be a challenge but he was a natural and despite claiming to be awkward in front of the camera, photographed very well.

Shagari was my very first mentee. He came with me to all of my sessions, carried bags and held reflectors. He was super eager to learn. He has made a name for himself in town as a premier wedding photographer.

Shagari a professional wedding photographer and videographer hailing from Lafayette, LA. Currently residing in Baton Rouge and traveling from New Orleans to Houston to capture beautiful weddings with his team.

His work can be seen here and here

Thanks for letting me capture you Shags!

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!
