A beautiful mama — new orleans maternity photographer

When you spend time in the south and you’re a photographer, you just have to take advantage!  There’s so much beauty in the big’ol oak trees drenched with moss, the flowers that bloom year round, and the gorgeous parks that are home to both.  Luckily for me, this beautiful mama is expecting this baby — her third — any day now, and so we had the perfect elements for a lovely and memorable maternity session.

Tracy is lovely, don’t you agree?  She is every bit as nice, too.  We had a great time walking around City Park in New Orleans capturing her at her most beautiful as she anticipates one of the greatest and life changing moments of her life.   I tried to convey the goodness, the pureness, the excitement and the joy of this special time under a beautiful canopy that Mother Nature so lovingly provided.

So glad y’all are here to relive this special day with us.  Enjoy!

professional album tied up in a pretty bow

albums from maine event and lifestyle photographer

Digital photography isn’t going anywhere, and if you’re like me, you have a lot (and I do mean a LOT!) of photos stored on your phone, computer, the cloud, or other means of storage.  Prints are great, and I love the gallery I’ve created in my stairway … framed prints of people I love …. that I see every day as I go up and down the stairs.   And how many of you make albums with your images?  Looking at them on a screen may do the trick, but holding an album in your hands, passing it around to your friends and earmarking it for a future generation is so much better!

I recently discovered a new album company — well, new to me — that fits the bill so perfectly that I have to share.   The process with my client was easy.  The colors are lovely and varied.   Ordering was a breeze and they were delivered within a week!  I got one with a leather cover and one with a linen cover.  The leather album has thick pages, the linen album has thin.  Each album comes in a sturdy box for safe keeping in a neutral and very pretty grey (which happens to be perfect for my branding, but more on that another time!).  And for delivery, they get wrapped up in a pretty bow, making this a very special parcel to receive.

salon lifestyle photography — Slidell, Louisiana

I can photograph people doing their thing all. day. long.  Let me be a fly on the wall, scurry around and capture people doing what they do — working, playing, creating, or whatever that wonderful thing might be.  I recently spent some time with Brittany and Rachel, owners of Serendipity Salon in Slidell, Louisiana, who wanted professional images to use for their social media.  I was happy to oblige.

Here’s what I love about their salon …. the ladies are lovely!, it’s visually pleasing, they provide hand massages while getting your hair washed, or a head and shoulder massage during the consultation, they use UNITE … love those products!, Plus, they practice that sweet southern charm by offering their guests champagne, coffee, coke or water … a full service provider of pampering!  See these gorgeous ladies in action ….

Taking a little time — Cape Cod Event Photographer

If today were Tuesday, this would be a “turnback” post.  If it were a Thursday, it would be a “throwback” post.  But it’s Wednesday, and so perhaps we will take a little jaunt with Sherman in the wayback machine.   These images are from last fall when I was on Cape Cod at the Chatham Bars Inn photographing an event for RE/MAX Integra of New England.

 

I mean, the Chatham Bars Inn!  Have you been there?  It’s quite lovely with cozy and spacious rooms that overlook the beach — the gorgeous beach that is even gorgeous out of season smack dab in the middle of fall.  So that’s where I headed, with a few friends, very early in the morning, each of us with our camera in hand.

 

Now, when I photograph with other photographers, I want to be sure that I don’t copy them.  However, at first I can’t help but watch what they’re doing (out of the corner or my eye, of course) — Where are they pointing their cameras?  What are they seeing that I’m not seeing?  Should I be photographing that too?????    This particular morning was no different and I don’t mind saying that it took me a few minutes to find my own groove.  It wasn’t until I remembered that when I changed my branding a few years ago, I also wanted to dedicate my camera to shooting what I love.  Shoot what you love, Jane … that was very important to me and something that I had lost sight of for those first few minutes.   I had to reach back and find that desire, and so I did.

 

Here’s what I saw that morning, and here’s what I focused on.  The nice and unexpected surprise?  Seeing the beautiful and colorful flowers on the way back in when it was light that we missed on the way out when it was dark.  For me, that’s pure joy.

 

Enjoy.
