Vintage Beauties {Houma, La and Thibodeaux, La Photographer}

I had the pleasure of photographing these gorgeous and spunky girls a few weeks ago at their relatives house in Thibodeaux, La.  She had this lovely garden with an arbor, moss covered trees and rows of sugar cane behind her house!  It was the absolute perfect setting for their session.

I always suggest outfits to compliment the personality of the one being photographed.  Mom had bought these dresses for them and was wondering about what shoes to wear.  The girls chose their cowboy boots!  Country chic!  To complete the outfits, I had the perfect purple crown to match the purple dress she bought and a lovely cream floral and flower barrette to match the pink.

We were just wrapping up the session when the home owner brought us to this “tree cave”, where the last image was taken. The low light shining through the trees fell perfectly on the girls, I couldn’t have asked for a better ending to this session! Well, except I happened to step on a poison ivy plant…  thanks to one of the little girls for pointing that out, as I had NO idea what one looked like.  Drove home and stashed those shoes in the garage!  I wasn’t taking any chances!

Sugar Plantation {Houma, LA – Child and Family Photographer}

I have always loved the grounds of this plantation, every time I drive past it. When I had the opportunity to photograph these two girls there, I can with it, complete with flowy skirts, Peter Pan collared shirts and period hair styles. I googled (gotta love Google!), what children did during the Victorian Era, coming up with reading and playing with tea sets. My grandpa had also given me some old cameras several years ago and in the box was this old gem. A 1920-1930’s camera! Score!

Magically Musically {New Orleans, LA – Senior Photographer}

Had the pleasure of photographing this gorgeous seniors pictures.  She will be heading off to the National Guard, in the medical field.  She is also enjoys playing her guitar, her baby.

During our pre-session consultation, mom and I were discussing her wardrobe.  She had told me she had lovely red hair.  All I could think of was Merida and how she looked stunning in her green dress.  (I LOVE that movie!).  Thus green was a natural color choice for this senior as well.  With the warm weather, the trees were still pretty green, blending with her green shirt.  I couldn’t help myself, but to add some fall tones to our southern winter.

City Senior {Houma, LA – Senior Photographer}

I had a blast photographing this senior in downtown Houma.  Him and his mom were such fun to work with.  I loved his chucks collection and was able to match his shoes to his shirt color.  It was nice stepping out of my nature backdrops for this unique city session.    Can’t wait to do more of them!NOLA Senior photographerlouisiana senior photographermetairie senior photographerhouma senior photographerkenner senior photographer
