Come on in. Kick back. Relax. Stay a while.

This blog is dedicated to my adventure in photography. You'll see bits of my adopted hometown, New Orleans, as well as plenty of pictures of my sons, Dylan and Logan, and, of course, the children and families that allow me to capture the special moments in their lives.

I'll be updating the blog frequently, so add me to your blog reader. And if you have a blog yourself, I'd love to be added to your blog roll. Lastly I love comments so if you've particularly enjoyed a post or a photo please let me know!

2008 is Coming!

Well, 2007 is drawing to a close and preparations for 2008 have begun. I only have a few session slots still available in December so if you're interested in squeezing in a session before the end of the year, be sure to book it soon. In 2008 all sorts of new developments will be coming down the pike... new products, a new information package, web site updates, and alas, new prices. I'm finalizing my 2008 packages and prices as we speak and they will be available for anyone interested in 2008 dates soon. I want to thank all of my 2007 clients - it's been a pleasure to capture your children and families. I hope to see you again in 2008!

Holiday Cards

Okay, I know most of us aren't ready to think about those December holidays yet. BUT... I do want to let you know that I am offering photo holiday cards this year. So, if you had a session with me earlier this year and would like to use the photos for holiday cards, please let me know as soon as possible. I'd be happy to send you pricing and a link to the samples gallery. Remember... it takes about a week to get the photo cards from the lab and you'll want time to get them out in the mail so there's really not a lot of time to waste if you are interested. Here are a few examples of the designs I'm offering this year:

We're back!

We had a fabulous two weeks in Italy, but it's nice to be back too. I've been derelict in my blogging I'm afraid. I have lots of cuties to get up here! But it will have to wait until I get caught up on my proofing, I'm afraid. In the meantime, here's a quick picture from Italy. The quality isn't great (holy shadows batman!), but never the less, that's my Dylbaby with the Leaning Tower of Pisa behind him. How freaking cool is that? :D

It's alive!

My website that is. There are still a few typos, etc., that I have to straighten out, but check it out: http://www.amydrouetphotography.com/. And let me know what you think!

Mary, Mary Quite Contrary

How does your garden grow?

Here's little Raegan. You may remember her from her 4-month session back in July. Here are a few pictures from her 6-month session.


I finally got a canvas for myself. Woohoo. Isn't it pretty? I love it.

Side view:

Cheeky Monkey!

Kevin and I got Dylan his Halloween costume the other day. Isn't this the cutest monkey you've ever seen? ;)

(please excuse the inconsistent colors - I was in a hurry! :))

Ben and Dylan's First Trip to the Lake

Every year a group of us rent a cabin on Percy Quin lake in Mississippi for a weekend. Kevin and I take the boat and we all spend the weekend waterskiiing, tubing, swimming, playing games, and generally relaxing. This year, for the first time, our Percy Quin weekend turned from an adults-only trip to a family trip as Dylan and our friend's son Ben joined the festivities. Of course I had to break out the camera and take some informal shots of Ben and Dylan on their first trip to the lake.

And here's Crabcake (representing his beloved Sox of course ;))

More Jack

Because I just can't resist such a sweet little face. (And maybe because I have a touch of baby fever too. ;))

This one cracks me up!

Little Jack

I am terribly, terribly behind on my blog posts. I promise I will catch up. But I couldn't resist popping on to post my absolute favorite picture from little Jack's photo session. A ladykiller already - just look at those eyes!

It's coming...!

What's coming you ask? A website. A real, live website! I'm like a kid at Christmas. I've been hard at work designing the site (in between all my vacations of course ;)) and I'm hoping to launch it in September. Here's a sneak preview:

So what do you think?

What a sweetie!

I had the pleasure of photographing 4-month old Raegan a few days ago. I'm still working on her proofs, but in the meantime, here's a preview!

My boys

Kevin and I took Dylan out on the lake at sunset the other evening for a little swimming and "fishing." Here are my boys:

More Kaylee

Who can resist a little girl in a watermelon dress? :)

She did not like the garden! Oh well ;)
