Adoption photography is something that I don’t get to do often. And, because there are often complications involved with showing images of an adopted child online, I get to show these sessions even less often! So, needless to say, I was very excited when this family allowed me to share their story. I’d previously photographed […]

This lifestyle family photography session is one of the most emotional ones I’ve ever photographed. When my client contacted me with their story, I knew right away that I just had to work with this family. Her mother had recently been diagnosed with cancer, and it had been a rocky year for them all. They […]

Why have I never done a family photography session at Perkins Rowe before, y’all?! When Ariyeil contacted me about photographing a generational family session for her, we needed to brainstorm on locations. Because her baby girl was still a teeny tiny little bit, we needed somewhere cool and shady. Photographing in the middle of the […]

I always feel privileged to document a day in the life of a family, but especially so when a fellow photographer trusts me with their family photography session. So, when Jennifer asked me to come spend the day with her husband and their three children, I was all in! We spent the day just documenting […]

I’m so excited to show off one of my favorite family photography sessions today. I met Katie when I photographed her wedding a few years ago, now, and I knew immediately that we were going to be friends. And, sure enough – here we are years later, having not only remained in touch and talking […]

Baton Rouge family photography is one of my all-time favorite things to photograph – and these guys are some of my all-time favorite subjects!   So, naturally, when mom Katie (a fellow photographer herself, over at KVR Photography) asked me to photograph their family for the day, I was all over it! People ask me, “What should […]

Baton Rouge Family Photographer – The Eckerts “When you find people who not only cherish your quirks, but celebrate them with glad cries of, “Me too!” – be sure to cherish them. Because those weirdos are your tribe.” Now, it may sound strange to hear me term a new-client-turned-instant-friend as a weirdo, but if you know […]

Documentary family photography sessions are among my very favorite things to shoot, so I had a blast hanging out with the Ingles family for their Life Unscripted session. The girls were at one of the most perfect ages for this kind of Family Photography session – full of sass, and happy, mischief, and so much fun. […]

I’ve known Marissa since high school, and we’re the kind of friends who are so alike that it’s downright scary. When she asked me for a Day in the Life photography session of her family as they decorated their home for Christmas, I was all over it! This is a really special time in their […]

Baton Rouge Family Photographer | First Haircut | Weston This kid right here… He cracked me up, all day. When mom Roxana asked me to photograph Weston’s first haircut and birthday celebration, I was all in, and couldn’t wait to meet this guy. There’s nothing like a bustling family birthday celebration to really bring out the family […]
