New Orleans Baby Photographer

Storybook images of your little cherubs

This is my favorite age to photograph! My style of photography is reminiscent of vintage storybooks. There is nothing more special than having a timeless portrait of your precious baby that captures the true essence of “babyhood”….the chubby cheeks, curious stares, hands in the mouth…. Everything you will want to freeze the memories of. Your child’s portrait session would take place at my beautiful studio in Covington.  It is located on the most incredible property filled with live oak trees, climbing roses and seasonal flowers.    We will create something magical!

✨ Combination of both indoor studio “scenes” and outdoor portraits

✨ Hundreds of vintage clothing pieces to choose from to style your session

I have a HUGE collection of hundreds of vintage clothing pieces from the 1920’s-1950’s along with vintage toys that will make your photos extra special.
