Important Update for All Clients

Starting immediately cakes will no longer be provided for cake smash sessions. -- Due to food service regulations Green Tangerine Photography will no longer be providing cakes for any portrait sessions.

Don't worry! You can still have a beautiful cake for your little ones birthday portraits. You will coordinate with one of my bakers and can pick up the cake and bring it to the studio.

While I realize this is an additional step in an already busy day this is ultimately for the protection of your child.

This update applies to all clients who book after today. Any previous clients who have already placed a retainer and booked a future date must sign a non-liability waiver in which CLIENT agrees to indemnify and hold harmless PHOTOGRAPHER for any liability related to accidents or reactions involving food product during the session or afterwards, there will be no exceptions regardless if you are a new or a returning client.


Refusal to sign the liability waiver will result in the cancellation of your session and refund of your retainer.

 It is from here on out the sole responsibility of the CLIENT to inform the PHOTOGRAPHER of any allergies upon booking. The PHOTOGRAPHER will not be held liable in the event that a child is found to be allergic to any of the ingredients used to make the cake or items the cake/ingredients may have come in contact with.

Thank you for your understanding.

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!

Business Head Shots

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!

2017-07-12_0001.jpg

With summer around the corner I know it seems early to start booking fall sessions but I want to encourage everyone to at least secure your date for the fall. Saturdays book up first always, so if you need a weekend then please reach out now to get on the calendar. You can email me here to inquire about availability. Fall is my FAVORITE!

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:  

Also coming up in May I have my annual Photography 101 course. Seats went on sale last week and currently there are 5 seats left. This class is perfect for aspiring photographers and those who have been shooting for a little while.

Green Tangerine Photography Introduces PhotoTherapy



Finally! It's here! My very first mentoring class is now available for booking. I am super excited about this. I have received dozens of inquiries in regards to teaching and mentoring, and I have meticulously fine-tuned a curriculum just for you!

I wanted to put together something cumulative and also filling. So I put pen to paper (I still love notebooks and a good pen) and wrote out some important points I thought you would love & learn from. Lots of pointers and tips I wish I had known from day one. All at your fingertips.



The course will be 3 hours and will cover:

* Starting out: How to navigate a new industry

* What's in The Bag?: Gear Talk

* Branding & Design: Developing Your Brand

* Editing & Style

* Q&A (ask any question you like!)


I am only offering six seats for this class. The class will be from 9-2 on Saturday, May 28th in Baton Rouge, LA.

The location will be kept private and only given to those who pay full tuition.

Veteran local & published children's editorial photographer, Angelica Johnson will be guest speaking on how to engage and prep for your children's portrait sessions.

From how to prep your clients to setting very realistic expectations for your session. You don't want to miss this!

Now for the fine print. The class will be from 9-2 on Saturday, May 28th. The tuition is $495.00 per seat. A 50% deposit is required to hold your seat. All deposits are nonrefundable. Breakfast & lunch is catered. Please bring your camera and any questions you may have.

I look forward to teaching you all! I am excited to share what I have learned over the past six years. :)
