“Stars shining bright above you
Night breezes seem to whisper, I love you
Birds singing in the sycamore trees
Dream a little dream of me”
– Dream A Little Dream, Gus Kahn
The moment a child is born,
the mother is also born.
She never existed before.
The woman existed, but the mother, never.
A mother is something absolutely new. ~Rajneesh
Happy Mother’s day to two beautiful new moms who welcomed little Sophia into their lives just a few weeks ago!
I couldn’t wait to share just a few of the pictures from Heather and Mike’s gorgeous wedding in the French Quarter last Saturday night. The Twirl Photo Lounge was very popular and made some fun pictures! One of my favorite image of the night, however, is the last one I took at the Hermann Grima house, Heather and Mike look like they are madly in love and having the best time! More to come soon…
Peyton, 4, has this infectious smile and giggle that was so easy to photograph. He also does a great zombie impression! It’s the little moments like his dad tying his red sneaker that just kill me and hopefully will be a great reminder of these fleeting moments. Peyton’s family lost most of their photos in a flood last year thanks to Hurricane Isaac. His mom set up this session in hopes of starting to fill up their rebuilt walls with new photos. I’m so honored to be the one to capture new memories!
This was such a fun family photo session at City Park during the blissful weather that is a New Orleans spring. Hudson and his older brother Nicholas were filled with laughter and joy as their doting parents danced around the oak trees with them. Thank you for the great time!
Sadie and her new sister Josie were a joy to photograph in their beautiful Uptown home recently and luckily their grandmother was still in town so we were able record three generations of this blossoming family. And although vibrant Sadie doesn’t quite know what to do with her new little sister, it’s clear that she already adores her.
Esther and Matt braved an unusually cold spring morning in the French Quarter for their recent engagement session. Esther’s bright smile and Matt’s adoration and tender care of his bride-to-be was a joy to watch and photograph. And they didn’t think twice when I asked them to sneak down an alleyway for some photos. They have such an ease together that I can’t wait to see how magical their wedding day is destined to be!
I loved photographing this fun goofy family. Sisters Zuzu and Hazel danced, jumped and ran around the stunning oak trees in Audubon Park as their adoring parents chased them around. There is nothing better than capturing moments of a vibrant and happy family who clearly enjoy being together. Thanks for the great photo session!
