Disclosure :: This guide was brought to you courtesy of our many sponsors! Thank you to those photographers that choose to participate in this guide.
It may be cliche to say but as mothers we are pretty sure that we are all acutely aware of the speed of time. The growth of tiny toes. The transition from diapers to big boy
underwear. The moment that you sort through your newborn accessories and decide what to throw away or pass on to another new mama (insert sniffle). These are the moments that we feel time just speeding by. Pictures are one way to capture the moment, the scene and the feeling of that one moment in time of your family.
We love this quote by Eudora Welty “A good snapshot keeps a moment from running away.”
Without further adieu we present to you a guide to Greater New Orleans area photographers. It is our hope that this list will make it easier for you to find a photographer for all of your families photography needs over time, whether that is birth photos, newborn photos, or just your annual shoot for the holiday cards.
We hope you find our Guide to Greater New Orleans Photographers helpful!

Melissa Jurisich, owner, is a New Orleans area photographer specializing in family photography: maternity, birth, newborns, children, tweens, and families. Sweet Honeybee loves being there from the beginning through each milestone of your growing family- from the moment your bump arrives, while you’re opening your new bundles’ gifts at your baby shower, in the hospital for the last push capturing your sweet one entering into the world, creating a unique setup to record their new tiny toes & sweet lips just 8-12 days old, smashing their first birthday cake, or marking their transformation into a young lady/ gentlemen just before they lose their baby face as a teenager. Sweet Honeybee hopes to provide you with superb quality, creativity, patience, safety and customer service for all photography services through affordable investment opportunities.
A separate endeavor of Sweet Honeybee is BEEtween, exclusive styled sessions for boys & girls ages 7-12 complete with themed setups, apparel, accessories, hair & makeup. These are more than photo sessions, they are an experience!

Rachael Kuivinen Photography
I am a local female photographer specializing in boudoir photography and my goal is to help you celebrate and love your body and capture it in a way that makes you feel beautiful and sexy. The ideal boudoir photography session ensures your comfort and relaxation so you can fully embrace your uniqueness, which results in stunning images that you and a loved one can cherish forever. The sessions are completely private, and I assist you in every aspect, including the location of the photo shoot, selection of wardrobe, to posing and the creation of an exquisite photo book. As a mom, I know the journey of parenthood gives us very little time to feel sexy or empowered. I want moms to grant themselves permission to enjoy this experience. Many of my clients are people who thought they would never be my clients, and are amazed at how at ease they felt and how much they loved the entire photo shoot from beginning to end. Contact me directly for a free consultation and to address any questions or concerns you may have. No more excuses, do something bold!
