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!

Sneak Peek: Ian [Metairie Baby Photographer]

All right, I'm jamming on my sneak peeks tonight because I'm going to be out of the "office" for a few days later this week and I don't want to leave all my moms and dads hanging. So with that in mind, on to my most recent session! We had a mild but overcast day for Ian's 1-year session (lots of 1 year olds lately!). Ian wasn't too sure about the "strange photographer lady," but he did give us a few handsome smiles - and even a few giggles!

Sneak Peek: Graham is 1 year old! [Kenner Baby Photographer]

I've photographed Graham at 6 months, 9 months, and now - 1 year! Happy (belated) birthday little boy. He's grown up so much and now he's going to be a big brother. Exciting times ahead!

Sneak Peek: Josh and Lucy [Metairie Baby and Child Photographer]

I recently met up with Josh and Lucy and their mom for pictures in the park. We were celebrating Lucy's one year birthday and Josh's three year birthday. Wow, how time flies! And we'll soon be welcoming their little brother and sister as well!

Sneak Peek: S Family [Mandeville Family Photographer]

I met the S family early on a Saturday morning at a local state park. They were brave souls to choose a beach session in January! But despite the chill and the fact that we had eight people to photograph - the youngest at a little over one year old - the session moved along quickly and smoothly.

Just one of the pudgemeister

Isn't he soooo cool? :)

Sneak Peek: Baby Kate [Mandeville Newborn Photographer]

I had the pleasure of spending Friday morning with 7 day old, Miss Kate, her happy parents and her uber-cute big brother. Kate was such a sweet, content baby. She barely made a peep the entire session. However, that doesn't mean that she didn't have a mind of her own. In fact, Kate was very sure that she did not want to be posed by me. At all. But after some intense negotiations, Kate and I finally came to an agreement...

Sneak Peek: Cooper [Chalmette Child Photographer]

It was an all-boy weekend! We had gorgeous weather for Cooper's session in City Park. We did lots of exploring and got some great captures. Y- I hope you enjoy your sneak peek!

Sneak Peek: Sullivan and Harrison [New Orleans Child Photographer]

As a mom with two boys with Irish names, can I just say how much I love these two brothers' names? Sullivan and Harrison met me out at the park (with mom and dad of course!) on one of the few very cold days we get around here. The boys were troopers though and we got some really cute shots. N&W - I hope you enjoy your peek!


My aunt bought Logan a super cute cow hoodie for Christmas and I've been dying to get a picture of him in it. Yesterday was a beautiful, but cool, day - perfect sweatshirt weather!

And one of my Dylan too of course.
