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.

Fall Events 2022

I’m so excited about this year’s Special Fall Event locations in and around New Orleans perfect for family photos!
These are specially curated spots that I know will create a rich canvas for your family. A mixture of historic homes and gardens, these locations require a photo permit fee and are booked months in advance—that’s all been taken care of for you!
If you like knowing where and when to show up for a quick, 30-minute, no-stress photo, take advantage of these mini-session events, and sign up for a date below. I only have a few spots open at each location on limited dates—and they go fast!
You can also book a full family session where we will pick the best location for your family. My fall calendar is now open, so reach out and let me know what you’re looking for this year.
A few tips: 
  • Different family photo locations have September, October and November dates; make sure to check each month.

 

  • If the New Orleans photo location mini-session you want is fully booked, contact me. With enough interest, I will add dates.

 

  • Each gorgeous location chosen is filled with opportunities for pictures, don’t be afraid to try a location for a second or third time.

 

  • French Quarter family photo shoots are only in the mornings It’s simply the best time for light, crowds and parking.

 

  • Dogs are always a welcome addition to your family photo shoots, however not all of these New Orleans locations will allow 4-legged friends. Contact me if you have questions about your fur-babies being part of your photos this year and I’m happy to lead you to the right location.

 

  • Your session fee reserves the date and time of your session. All digital images, prints and keepsakes are available through your online gallery about two weeks after your session. Digital Collections begin at $695.Please email me to see full pricing.
