Winter Fairy Mini Session {Houma, LA}

Now booking the first of four seasonal fairy mini sessions!  Each image of the winter fairy will consist of a winter snow effect and one image will include a winter woodland animal!  I have 3 mini sessions available on February 25th at $250 each session, and for those of you who need more flexibility, I am offering an ANY DAY mini for $300.  Each session has access to 2 sets of fairy wings.  A green pair and an iridescent pair (pictured below).  Children under 4 years old must wear the green pair, as they are better suited for smaller children.  I have a variety of girls dresses ranging from sz 4 through sz 12, as well as a boys blazer and a womans tutu!  Don’t miss out on the first of this fairy series, book your session now!

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

Senior Outdoors Man {Senior Photography – Mandeville, Slidell and Metairie Photographer: Taken in Midland, TX}

I took this seniors brothers senior pictures a few years ago.  His mom loved this pose of his brother and wanted one for him too.  The family are avid hunters.

His grandfather had passed away and left some money for each boy when they graduated high school.  Both him and his brother had chosen to use some to get a Yeti cooler.  Because of the family significance, he wanted the Yeti included in his Senior pictures.

They loved their photo’s and had a hard time choosing which ones to purchase!

Desert Rose {Styled Portraits – New Orleans Photographer: taken in Midland TX}

Her middle name is Rose. The beauty in the middle of a barren desert.  As we leave our West Texas home and move onto new adventures in Louisiana, I wanted to bring beauty to the barren landscape that we have lived among the last few years.  There IS beauty in the desert.  The sunsets are to die for.  There is something special about the flat landscape that brings your eyes up to the sky and to the flowers that bloom on the cactus’s.  The flowers that eventually turn into prickly pear fruit (which I totally recommend you try!).
