From Field Goals to Kicking it Off with His Bride-to-Be | Emily + Trent: Baton Rouge Wedding Photographer

From kicking for LSU Football to kicking off a new chapter of life with his wonderfully smart and stunning fiance’ Emily, as an onlooker I’ll say, Trent, you are pretty blessed. Upon meeting Trent and Emily, I was instantly drawn to their genuine and warm personalities. After spending some time with them giggling and sipping bubbly, I just fell in love with their immense talent, intelligence, and beauty. You see, Emily isn’t just a stunning brunette Jessica Simpson doppelganger, she’s also currently working towards her Doctorate in Audiology. Trent and Emily, I genuinely cannot wait to see where life brings the two of you.

In the meantime, you can just go ahead and swoon over them…

Thank You, Mama: Mother-Daughter Photography | Northshore Louisiana Family Photographer

Photographing motherhood is such a rewarding experience, and one that seems to fulfill me like nothing else. While I truly love documenting all milestones of this crazy little life, there is something so particularly sacred about motherhood that fills my entire body with butterflies when the moments are captured through my lens. Our first, literally, vital lifeline, teacher, and biggest fan. Even without being a mother myself, simply observing motherhood in those around me is astonishingly breathtaking.

Shnaz and Heartlie share the sweetest bond, one I’m so grateful to have had the opportunity to observe through my lens. With Mother’s Day having just passed, I felt this appropriate to share. (:Emily + Trent EngagementsEmily + Trent Engagements Emily + Trent Engagements

Heartlie brought some flowers she had picked at her field trip earlier that day and was sure to let me know she wanted them in photographs. Pretty, dainty things–right up my alley, Miss Heartlie.Emily + Trent Engagements Emily + Trent Engagements Emily + Trent Engagements Emily + Trent EngagementsEmily + Trent Engagements

Happy Girls are the Prettiest | Elizabeth, Class of 2016: New Orleans Senior Photographer

“I think one of my favorite feelings is laughing with someone and halfway through realizing how much you enjoy them and their existence.”

When I met Elizabeth, instantly her personality shined so very brightly. Genuine, big laughs and enjoying every moment of this season of her life, Elizabeth left me in awe of her mature persona, ambitious outlook on her future, and lustrous nature. Oh sweet girl, I cannot wait to see where life takes you.

With the last days of school approaching for this year’s senior crew, I felt it only appropriate to share Elizabeth’s session today.Elizabeth KeranElizabeth KeranElizabeth Keran Elizabeth KeranSeriously, can we talk about how stunning a lady is when she’s laughing? There’s not much better in this world than a happy woman.

Lace & Giggles, A Spring Engagement Session | Megan + Jordan: New Orleans Wedding Photographer

“He looked at her the way all women want to be looked at by a man.”    – The Great Gatsby, F. Scott Fitzgerald

You may recognize these two from the holiday engagement session we did a while back. As they are having a long engagement, I was thrilled when Megan contacted me about doing another engagement session during the Spring this year. I’m a HUGE advocate of taking professional photos regularly (even before kids), so hearing this made my heart burst. Megan possesses the most gentle, radiant soul–one that just gleams to everyone she touches. After having spent some time with them already, I am constantly in awe of the respect and nurturing affection for one another Megan and Jordan possess in the most refreshing of ways. Gentle, kind, and so clearly ready to spend the rest of their lives with no one else but one another.

I’m not sure if I laughed more at the jokes we made or swooned more over the adorable nature of their relationship. Either way, we had a blast.Emily + Trent EngagementsEmily + Trent Engagements Emily + Trent EngagementsMegan and Jordan, thank you so very much for allowing me to get to know the two of you and capture your relationship so organically.
