Emily and Herb are calm and collected new parents, not sweating the little stuff and handling no sleep like pros. It’s such a privilege to photograph my former wedding clients becoming first-time parents.  You can check out their wedding photos here. We take the time to mark these moments because they are big- marriage and baby. With a baby, it changes your routine, your surroundings, your relationship with your parents, friends and partner – and everyday your heart will get fuller.  What an awesome experience it is to start a family. Welcome to world Clara!

Walking around the French Quarter with this lovely couple was such a joy. Nimesh and Anita are planning a Fall wedding in New Orleans so it seems fitting to capture them during a New Orleans Spring as they begin to plan their next journey in life. It’s clear that they are crazy about each other, I’m honored to be their wedding photographer. Congratulations Namish and Anita.

Dionne and Paul had lovely moments to capture throughout their wedding day from the getting ready photos at Hotel Mazarin, wedding party and bride and groom portraits around the French Quarter, the beauty of their ceremony and reception at Latrobe’s on Royal. Each of the first dances, husband and wife,  father and daughter,  and mother and son, were tear jerkers. The best man speech followed by a rendition of Neil Diamond’s Sweet Caroline was a crowd favorite and the NOLA Dukes serenaded the guests throughout the night. The night ended with a second-line through the French Quarter. Congratulations Dionne and Paul, it was an honor to be your wedding photographer.

It has been at least 12 years since the Wasserteil family had gathered in front of a professional photographer.  Thankfully they choose to break that streak while on vacation in New Orleans with their three grown children. Meeting from different parts of the country, this delightful family embraced the Crescent City and were gracious enough to allow me to pose them around the long reaching arms of Oak trees  and stunning bridges at City Park. The three children/adults even agreed to balance on a branch. I’m a firm believer that there is never a bad time to take pictures of your children. Document your life and what each year will bring. It was an honor to document this family.New Orleans Family Photography

D’Arcy and Kevin surprised their guests many times over in a romantic and seductive New Orleans wedding at the Hotel Mazarin. Carolyn of All About Events worked closely with the bride to create a vintage wedding with a prohibition theme, including a speak easy with a whiskey bar. There was no shortage of gorgeous arrangements created by Bella Bloom Floral.  I adored capturing the connection between Kevin and D’Arcy as we walked around the French Quarter for portraits, stopping under iconic signs. Guests dined at three long elegant tables to the sounds of The Courtyard Kings. After Bananas Foster made at the tables, guests were guided into another private room as the Smoking Time Jazz Club serenaded. This gorgeous wedding ended with a burlesque strip tease by Trixie Minx and bite size grilled cheese sandwiches with a tomato soup shooters. I loved every minute of this elegant wedding. Congratulations to D’Arcy and Kevin!

This newborn photography session with triplet girls and their older triplet siblings reinforced my belief that capturing real moments is what’s most important in newborn photography. Seven-year-old siblings Jack, Oliver and Ellie have already chosen a favorite baby of their own to coo and cuddle with. Laughter ensued as they each took turns kissing and giving raspberries to Georgie, Wells and Vivian’s bellies. And watching mom kiss each little foot as the baby girls wiggle about was so sweet. Dad’s advice to new parents: don’t buy anything until you absolutely need it. Capturing the simple essence of what this change means to this family is a pleasure. I can’t wait to see these girls grow.

I’m so lucky to get to photograph my 6th year of Penny and Lawson’s birthday bash which coincides with one of New Orleans best parades, The Krewe of Thoth, every year. Make sure to check out the last five years with the picture at the bottom of this post. This is one of the reasons I love photography, we live in the moment but the moments go by quickly. It’s so important to take note of the joy in our lives, whether it’s special events or the simple everyday moments. Happy Birthday Penny and Lawson!
