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!

Sareda is a hair/beauty blogger and her YouTube channel can be found here https://www.youtube.com/c/rerefined1

Monique: New Orleans Natural Hair Expo

Last year when Monique contacted me for updated head shots I was soooo nervous! With a platform of 30K plus followers on IG, I felt I needed to stretch myself in a way I hadn't before. Well, that was last year, and here we are again! Monique travels the 4 hour drive from Houston JUST to have me capture her and I really enjoy her energy. She is a complete natural in front of the camera!

Monique is a New Orleans native and the founder of the New Orleans Natural Hair Expo, held the same weekend as Essence Fest in New Orleans. This marks the 3rd Annual New Orleans Natural Hair Expo & will be held July 2, 2016, from 10-4 pm at the Contemporary Arts Center of New Orleans.  On July 3, 2015, the expo will close-out with an exclusive brunch, from 11-2 pm at Tujaques' Restaurant.  The New Orleans Natural Hair Expo will feature workshops, product demonstrations, a blogger panel, vendor suites, vendor mall, professional DJ, catered refreshments, and a cash bar.
