Fall is for family photos! In the midst of COVID, hurricane clean up, and holiday preparations, sometimes setting up a time to take family photos can slip through the cracks. Take my advice- don’t let that happen! There is still so much good in this crazy year and your family during this time needs to be documented!

Amy took the time to do just that! I had the pleasure of photographing her beautiful family last weekend! This entire family is gorgeous, but Maya REALLY hit it out of the park and we got SO MANY great photos! Below are a few of my favorites!

Thank you to the Dietz family for allowing me to take these photos for you! I hope to work with you guys again in the future!

Well guys, hurricane season has struck again! As I prepare this blog, I’m sitting in Texas AGAIN after evacuating for yet another hurricane. Between COVID and this battering of hurricanes, so many sessions have had to be cancelled or postponed indefinitely! Luckily, I was able to complete one session in between it all! 

Obviously, this session was NOT able to be shot in Lake Charles since it is pretty much impossible to find an area with out debris currently. For this shoot, I traveled to Oakdale to shoot this gorgeous family session in my aunt’s backyard. I love that we were able to squeeze this in and that we were able to get a TON of different photo arrangements. Take a look at just a few of my favorites:

Thank you to the Wheats for asking me to shoot these photos for y’all! I hope you love them as much as I do!

Guys, the last month has been a WHIRLWIND! As I stated on my business Facebook, our home and most of its contents were destroyed in Hurricane Laura, our nephew had to spend time in the NICU, and my grandfather passed away. Right when I was ready to say “Okay 2020, I give up. You win!” I was able to meet, hold, and love on my precious nephew Jaxx- and that changed everything.

I’m lucky to have tons of nieces and nephews through my husband Ben’s family, but until lately, I have not gotten to experience that in my side of the family. In the last year, we finally got our wish x 2! My brother gained a previous step-daughter and then 2 weeks ago, blessed us with his son! The silver lining of this horrendous hurricane season and all that it took from us is that we now – all displaced – are living together and getting to experience the joy of baby Jaxx under one roof at our Mom’s house.

Jaxx is the world’s greatest baby. I know that I am extremely biased, but it is just the truth. He is adorable. He hardly ever cries. He has the tiniest body yet still has the cutest double chin that you’ve ever seen. Best of all, I get to witness my brother and his partner Danita serve as wonderful parents to this little ray of light! And huge bonus – I have gotten to hold and snuggle him every day of his life since he arrived home from the NICU. He has made 2020 completely worth it for our family.

Recently, we were finally able to take his newborn photos displaying all of the beauty that I mentioned above. Take a look at a handful of my favorite photos:

Baby Jaxx- I love you more than words and cannot wait to watch you grow. I promise to always be the best Buggy and give Uncle Ben turns holding you even when I just want to hog you. Brad & Danita – You already know. 😉 Love you all!
