Welcoming Baby Bodie

From their wedding to maternity to the baby being here, I love watching their family expand. I don't normally photograph newborns, but when Brittany e-mailed me and told me Bodie had arrived, I was there the next day. Check out some of the photos from beginning to end :)

Michael & Alyssa

I met Michael and Alyssa a little over a year ago in Sucre. They met on Tulane’s Campus and are graduates at the prestigious institution. As we got to know each other, I noticed how poised and almost shy Alyssa was, and Michael just as reserved but with a sense of humor - not only were they a good match, but we were a good match for each other.

They were wed on April 15, 2017 at the Botanical Gardens in City Park. Their ceremony was intimate and the atmosphere matched it to boot - light spring weather, flowers blossoming where they exchanged vows in front of their family and friends. They signed a Ketubah, and in their Jewish tradition - broke glass. Michael & Alyssa partied the night away, and even though it rained through part of their reception, they didn't let a little water spoil the celebration.

As always, I am honored they hired me to photograph this beautiful occasion, and I am even more grateful that a dear friend, Devonte Williford with Rare Sighting Photography,  agreed to be my second shooter. Check out some of the photos below.

As a new season approaches...

IMG_2210.JPG

We don't get traditional September weather in NOLA. We won't even have boot appropriate weather until mid-October. Fall is my favorite time of the year though, and I can't wait to break out the fall attire. The summer to fall transition is therapeutic for me because the planet isn't the only thing that goes through changes. The falling leaves off the trees always reminds me to let dead things go: stagnant relationships, anger and resentment, weight and even bad habits. As we get older, I believe we should constantly develop our mental palettes, make it an effort to constantly learn new things and reinforce our values with action. August was a great month, but I'm going to make this a September to remember.

Amelia + Jason - Engaged

Amelia reached out to me earlier this month to photograph her engagement session. After we went over the details, we decided to go to City Park, one of our favorite places in the city. 

The day we shot was beautiful with a slight overcast with a soft breeze. We instantly connected as we had a lot in common, and over the course of an hour, we got to know each other and even learned we knew some of the same people (y'all know NOLA is super small).

Amelia, a Retention Specialist, and Jason, an Account for the City of New Orleans, met on Plenty of Fish about 4 years ago. They took their time to get to know one another as people and friends, and according to Amelia, took courting to a new level by dating for 8 months before they became a couple. Jason decided to surprise Amelia by proposing using black stickers are her front door. As she was leaving, she initially missed the message, so Jason had her go back inside to make sure they didn't leave anything. When she came back out, she realized what was on her door, and the rest is history! They're set to marry in May, and I wish them nothing but love and happiness!

Carie + Jonell - Maternity

I shot their engagement, their wedding, their birth announcement, and now their maternity session! I swear, these two are some of my favorite people. Kind, compassionate, fun and so so in love. I am so happy for Carie and Jonell, and I can't wait to meet baby Addison this summer!
