sunset at fontainebleu state park

fontainebleu state park — a louisiana sunset

I had a list of places I wanted to visit and photograph when I was spending time in Louisiana earlier this year.   It was a long list.  I didn’t make it to every one, but  I did make it to Fontainebleu State Park in Mandeville much to my delight!  I specifically wanted to visit this state park for the sunset.

I had some time on my hands, the sky was clear and it was a beautiful afternoon.  Perfect!  I grabbed my camera and my husband and set out for this place of which I had seen many pictures, but wanted my own.

As we entered the park, it didn’t take me long to yell “STOP THE CAR!!”    The sun was moving down the sky and was backlighting these big old oak trees laden with spanish moss in a way that took my breath away.  I got to work — which really isn’t work for me at all because it is what feeds my soul, makes me happy, and allows me to share the spin I put on the beauty I witness.

Now you might think that after photographing these gorgeous trees I might be disappointed at what comes next …  au contraire!  The sunset was a lovely show of pinks, yellows and oranges against the blue sky that made way for the stark contrast for some beautiful silhouettes.

Please enjoy viewing the images because I sure enjoyed taking them!

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 ….
