Guide to Greater New Orleans Photographers


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!

I believe that there is nothing in this world more perfect than a brand new baby. My goal as your photographer is to capture the tiny details and personalities of each little miracle you bring to me in a beautiful and artistic way…..the little forehead and back wrinkles, soft swirls of hair and the mother who is cradling her newborn and breathing in its sweetness. I am a believer of quality over quantity and pay great attention to details.  Each photograph you receive is a reflection of my art and is canvas-worthy. Each session styled by me is unique and personalized.   Finally and most importantly, newborn/child safety is my top priority. The greatest care and softest touch are used when photographing your delicate little ones.
