Hi, I'm Jennifer. I love photographing kids who want to be a little silly, dads who love playing with their kids and moms who need to hang on to this moment in time!


I bring so much more than a camera to your family photo session. I bring a passion for storytelling, a wealth of experience capturing genuine moments, and a deep understanding of what matters to you most---your child.


I'm the owner and photographer of Twirl Photography which I started in 2010 in New Orleans, La, and I can't wait to make pictures for you!

Hey, it happens.

Kids grow up.

If I could wave a wand and go back in time to spend one more day with my kids as roly-poly babies, I would do it in a heartbeat. But unfortunately, no such time machine exists. Except in photography. My memories live in photos.

The Most Important People in Your Life

A family photo shoot should be a fun, engaging experience in itself. And in the end, you should get gallery worthy portrait art for your home.


It’s hard to take a pause from a hectic schedule to get professional family photos, but it’s also the one element of your life right now that can last forever.


In the spirit of simplicity, all baby, child, and family photo sessions are up to 60 minutes in length and result in a gallery of 30–40 beautifully edited images, fully retouched for review in an online gallery.


I offer several options to create the perfect photographic art that is specially designed for your space. This can include a wall portrait, an heirloom album, and digital images that you can preserve for generations.

"I know I've told you before, but I want to tell you again, that all of the photos that you have taken of our family are some of my most prized possessions. I hold these memories so close to my heart and I'm so happy to have them and will have them in the future to look back at their tiny faces. I know I'm going to blink and they will be teenagers. So for now I will soak up and savor every moment, but I wanted to thank you for these wonderful gifts, I will cherish them forever!"
