Welcome TO my

    Cotton sessions are coming! The beautiful snowy fields will be perfect in just a few short weeks so I’m getting everything together to host minis. These sessions are great for small children, families and couples, and I’ll be using a few antique-looking props ideal for 1-4 year olds. Ed Lester Farms, located in […]

natchitoches

I felt like Secret Squirrel the day that these two got engaged. I stood, waiting for them to meander their way down to the waterfall feature of Beau Jardin. Impatient. Honestly, so impatient and ready for things to happen. I was worried that he had changed his mind, that they had gone somewhere else or […]

natchitoches

Valerie and Terry found themselves in our quaint town of Natchitoches. They had been planning to go elsewhere to get married, but with scary medical events just barely in the past, they thought “if not now, when?” and made the drive from Grand Prairie, Texas to Natchitoches. Junior Johnson officiated for the happy couple. He’s […]

Mandy and her children met up with me at the Cairo Plantation sunflower maze, part of the Sunflower Trail festival. This is quite easily the largest sunflower field around. 30 acres, as far as you can see, you’re surrounded by the brilliant faces.

Sunflowers add warmth and joy to portraits that just makes me so happy! This, of course, was at the Sunflower Trails and Festival maze located on Cairo Plantation. Sunflowers […]

Megan and her adorable son, Hendrix, drove all the way from Natchitoches to north of Shreveport for a quick session. We got there at the most perfect time as the sun was just starting to set. Hendrix is growing up so fast! He was happy to run around in the rows of sunflowers, most of […]

weddings

Essie and Brandon had a beautiful reception at the historic Hotel Bentley in Alexandria, Louisiana. Here’s a quick preview, plus photos I took of the hotel lobby that is, quite honestly, one of the most beautiful buildings I’ve seen in Louisiana.

weddings

I have been a major fan of 17hats since I signed up with them in 2015. This program has completely changed everything for me. Once you get your templates for contracts, emails and questionnaires loaded, all you have to do is plug and play. You can have it as automated as you’d like, sending emails […]
