I was so excited to do a Fontainebleau family session for the Kahn family. I have known Felicity for several years and she was pregnant with her sweet boy Trey when I was pregnant with my Sam. I have really enjoyed seeing these sweet kiddos grow up. Margaux has grown into a lovely little lady […]

Mandy and Jordan had a Boudreauxs Baton Rouge wedding. The weather could not have been more perfect. Hurricane Harvey was set to pass the next day, but for Mandy and Jordan’s wedding we had beautiful skies and a fun day ahead of us. We began at Broadmoor United Methodist Church for a lovely candlelit ceremony. […]

I was so excited to do Laura’s New Orleans Maternity Session at Fontainebleau State Park. I have known Laura forever. No seriously, forever. Her dad and my dad are best friends, and once owned a color lab together. As many people know, my dad is a photographer, and so was my grandfather. Well, Laura’s dad, […]

Mahitha and Pavan brought family and friends together for a New Orleans Indian Wedding at the Hyatt Regency. We celebrated over a few days and it was a beautiful experience. Both Mahitha and Pavan’s family were so kind and friendly. I don’t know how many times Cyd and I were asked if we ate, and […]

I was so excited to do the Mandeville birth photography for Lauren’s sweet baby boy, Jaxon.  Jaxon is what we call a “rainbow baby.” A rainbow baby is the blessing that comes after the loss of a pregnancy. My oldest child is a rainbow baby, so I understand the meaning and significance of little Jaxon’s […]

I was so excited to shoot the Autin family’s documentary family photography session in Mandeville. I have known Mandy since high school, so it is always fun to visit with her sweet family. What I love most about documentary family photography is having the opportunity to see how families interact with one another, instead of […]

Bridget and James chose to have a Camp Salmen engagement session because of their history with the boy scout organization. They met as camp counselors at the boy scout camp in Mississippi and fell in love. They were excited to choose Camp Salmen, the former boy scout camp site, because Bridget’s father had worked there […]

I had the honor and privlidge to do the Baton Rouge birth photography for sweet baby Kanon at Woman’s Hospital. Whitlee and Ballard are an amazing couple and were so excited to meet their baby boy. Whitlee is a nurse and had a network of friends and colleagues that were there for her through the […]

I was so excited to do the Strickland’s documentary family photography session last week. Kristen was one of the first people I met almost nine years ago when we moved to Mandeville, LA. Immediately Kristen welcomed me to her church and community. She invited my daughter, Lily, to play with her daughter, Macy and our […]

Holly and Beau had an amazing time at their LSU Faculty Club Wedding. We didn’t let bad weather stop us from enjoying this beautiful venue.  I first met Holly and Beau for their engagement session in Downtown Baton Rouge. They are a laid back, sweet couple that enjoys Star Wars and playing with their pup. […]
