I loved this New Orleans Pavilion of the Two Sisters wedding so hard! With a ceremony at Transfiguration Church, and an amazing reception at Pavilion of the Two Sisters, I was a happy (albeit tired) girl on this one!   If you know me, and what I’m most passionate about in my work, you know that […]

As a wedding photographer in Gonzales, I’m lucky to be able to photograph some of the best couples in the parish. AND at some of the best venues! I’m always thrilled to photograph at Elegant Affairs – and even more-so when I get to photograph wonderful couples like April and William. Family means so much […]

When these two amazing women invited me to be a part of their destination wedding in Pensacola, I could not say yes fast enough. Cheri and Ana are both seriously kick-ass women! I knew before they told me a thing about their day that it was going to be perfect. Being a Baton Rouge gay […]

A bridal photography session at Greenwood Plantation always makes me such a happy girl. So, when this oh-so-wonderful client of mine asked for recommendations for bridal photo locations, I had just the place! My job is about more than just pressing buttons on a camera. I like to really take care of my clients – […]

Hammond Wedding Photographer – Melissa and Joe tie the knot at Holy Ghost Catholic Church! One of the most fun aspects of my jobs is, without a doubt, the people who make it possible. With as many people as I work with on a regular basis, it never fails to amaze me how complex, and […]

From the very first five seconds of our phone conversation, I knew she was my people. I just knew it. We talked about all kinds of things during our first phone call (most […]

FILED IN: Engagement

Unique engagement photography is kind of my jam. So, when these two amazing people wanted to do a completely offbeat engagement session, I was (as you can probably predict) totally down for it. Hayride Scandal is an amazing whiskey bar in Baton Rouge. They were nice enough to welcome us for a really cool engagement […]

Date night ideas for couples – it’s a difficult topic! Whether you’ve been together for a short period and just want to think outside of the box, or if you’ve been together for a long time and want to shake things up…it’s fun to try new things! The dinner and a movie routine can get […]

FILED IN: Family

Candid family photography is one of my specialties. I cannot overstate how passionate I am about documenting a family’s memories and the people in them just as they are. The thing about parenting is that it is completely exhausting, you guys. Sometimes it feels like all you’re ever doing as a parent is reacting to […]

So, you think you know all of the signs of labor. You’ve read the books, scoured all of the resources online, and talked to your doctor. Now you’re in the final trimester of your pregnancy, though, and it’s all sinking in. Your baby could come any day now! But how will you know if it’s […]
