Bohemian Love

Had this lovely session a few ago.  I absolutely loved the outfits they chose!  The grey vest/pantsuits complimented the pale pink dresses perfectly.  Mom and her daughter matched perfectly.

Their son was so interested in picking the clover flowers for his personal portrait and I had asked him to hand the flowers to his sister.  Magic ensued!  The outcome was pure delight on his sisters face <3

Strawberry Picking {Houma, LA Photographer}

This little girl LOVES her some strawberries, so it was natural to schedule her birthday session at the strawberry patch!  She could literally eat a whole pint of strawberries in one sitting. This was a last minute session and a quickly thrown together outfit.  Her shirt is actually a toddler dress that was hemmed shorter, because who knew that sunshine yellow isn’t popular and mustard yellow is? The boots were shipped and delivered right before the session, thanks to Amazon Prime!

In all this little cutie picked almost a half flat of strawberries to bring home and share, plus we were able to get some cute shots of her in the picking process!


PS:  which do you like best of the first image?  Black and white or color

Fam Squad {Houma, La Photographer}

I had the pleasure of photographing this family right after Christmas.  It was supposed to be a family of 7, but one child had to go back home out of state and another child had to have surgery 🙁  So the family of 7 turned into 4 and the family dog.  Despite missing 2 members, the images turned out fantastic and I was able to catch a special moment between their youngest daughter and their doggy <3.

Tree Farm {Houma and Thibodeaux, LA Photographer}

I had the privileged of photographing this family while visiting family in St Louis, MO.  They had a lovely train station with a Christmas tree farm with in walking distance.  Thankfully, the weather had warmed up from the snow storm they had the previous week, and we were given sunny and warm weather!

Cousins! {Houma, LA Photography}

Before Thanksgiving I had a session with two families. A lady and her sister in law wanted images of all the cousins together. You could tell they loved each other. The two little girls were more like sisters than cousins.

Bear’s, Zebra’s and Dragon’s, Oh My! {Houma, La Photographer}

Had a blast photographing and creating these 3 portraits for my mini session offerings!  I wanted to get my creative juices flowing and create a few new composite images to share.  I had the idea of the zebra and bear, because who doesn’t love bears and the zebra is just so fun and whimsical!  The dragon came to me a few days later.  Nothing more fun than taking your pet dragon for a walk down through your neighborhood.

Swan Fairy – {Houma, La Photographer}

It was such a pleasure photographing this little fairy! We had to postpone the session due to rain, and the sun shone one morning last week for us to squeeze in her session! She looked adorable in her pink dress and had a blast wearing the fairy wings. Mom also brought along her rain boots for her to jump in “muddy puddles” like Peppa Pig and Suzy Sheep. At one point she looked down at her feet, and when I was going through the files decided I just had to at a feathered friend for her to be playing with!
