What to Expect


Audubon Park, French Quarter, Jackson Square, City Park are all great locations for our outside photos. During the initial consultation, together we work to choose the perfect location for your outdoor session.

Newborn, Baby Milestone, Cake Smash, Maternity Mini Sessions and some of our Limited Edition Mini Sessions, are held in our studio located on the Westbank of New Orleans.

Maternity Sessions

Pregnancy is a remarkably beautiful time that is meant to be treasured, its amazing to be able to photograph expecting mothers as they grow such precious miracles inside. Every pregnancy is different and unique so the exact timing of your session will vary. The best time is typically between 29-35 weeks, this way you are showing with a large, beautiful, glowing belly but most importantly you are able to remain comfortable throughout the session.

We also specialize in gender reveals! Whether you don’t know the gender yourself and want to capture your reaction, or are looking to reveal the surprise to family members and friends. Together we can plan the most memorable gender reveal session ever!


All newborn sessions take place in our cozy studio located on the Westbank. Here, we will have access to our extensive selection of props, it also guarantees that we have the perfect lighting and the best setting for a happy and sleepy baby. Newborn sessions take place within the 1st 5 – 10 days. It is best to book your newborn session as soon as possible into your pregnancy to ensure that you have a reserved place on our calendar, we will tentatively schedule your newborn session around your expected due date. During the session, your baby will be posed and positioned with the utmost care. There is no need to worry if you are not feeling 100% yet, as I will soothe, swaddle and ensure baby is kept happy. Your only job is to sit back, relax, and enjoy the free time. Until of course baby is ready to eat – then go back and repeat the sequence!

Children and Babies

We love documenting the various ages and stages your children will go through. We offer a special Milestone- Watch Me Grow package, for this very reason.

Milestone Sessions

Milestone sessions are generally held around 4, 7, and 12 months. They are designed to showcase baby’s milestone developments at each age: smiling, holding their head up, sitting, crawling, standing and walking. The Milestone Session Plan is a great way to document your baby’s first year while getting a discount for booking multiple sessions.

Cake Smash

Cake Smash Sessions are a fun, wonderful, and exciting way to celebrate your child’s first birthday milestone! These sessions are held at our studio and are a huge hit, usually filled with lots of fun and giggles! Together, we will plan for your custom Cake Smash Session to pick the perfect theme and colors. We have also paired with a local New Orleans bakery to ensure your custom Cake Smash Session includes a custom smash cake!

Fresh 48

“Fresh 48” refers to a special session that captures the 1st few hours of a newborns life. Held within the first 24-48 hours, these lifestyle sessions are perfect for remembering that first day forever. This is not a traditional newborn portrait session, I will not be using any lighting or props, it will simply be me capturing your new baby’s sweet new moments in a fresh, natural way. Within the first 48 hours, I will visit your place of birth to capture all of the details, whether its daddy’s first diaper change, flaky skin, meeting a new sibling, breastfeeding, or even a herbal bath. I will fill that hour photographing these precious and fleeting moment that you will cherish for a lifetime.

Family Sessions

Your portrait session will be fun, relaxed, pleasant and memorable for the whole family. During an average session, we typically spend an hr or two taking photographs, and allow ample time for breaks, rest, or snacks – especially for the little ones. Rest assured our custom portrait sessions are never rushed.

The better you feel, the better you’ll look! It is important that everyone is well rested for the big day!

I want each and every member of the family to enjoy the experience. Don’t be afraid to let loose, joke, dance, skip, hop, laugh – be yourself. For this is when memories are made.
