What a JOY! {St. Francisville Newborn Photographer}

Sunday, June 19, 2011



When I'm blogging about a photo session, I often write simple messages to correspond with some of my favorite images from that session. You will often find me saying "This session brought me such JOY because..."  I do notice that I say this often, but it's what my heart truly feels: JOY!  I find JOY in photographing new clients I meet.  I find JOY photographing repeat clients, watching their families grow from a family of 2 to a family of 3, 4 and 5.  Not to mention that I get to watch their little ones grow from newborns to toddlers to middle schoolers.  I guess I just find JOY in what I do!!  I just love photographing little ones!! :)  Another way in which I find JOY with relation to my photography is when photographing children of dear friends like Ann Marie's baby Andrew in the last session - I've known Ann Marie for years!  It brings me great JOY to photograph these precious children of hers and Brian's.  This past weekend, I got to photograph another friend Kelle, who is also on her 3rd child - a girl, finally! :)  It brings me such JOY to know that y'all are JOYful over this baby girl after 2 beautiful boys!

Now, for those of you perusing the blog, maybe looking for a newborn photographer, don't let little Anna Klein fool you - all of these smiles that she gave me are VERY uncommon for a newborn photo shoot.  Every once in a while, I'll catch 1 smile, and I hope that it was in focused...but this little tiny peanut knew her favorite photographer was there and she was just charming me by giving me tons of smiles!! :)  EnJOY Grezaffi family!!

"Be JOYful ALWAYS; pray continually; Give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus."  1 Thessalonians 5: 16-18

I'm so happy that Andrew is finally here!  This little (big) peanut, almost 9 lbs, is 12 days young here....and he is the spitting image of his big brother!  Congrats, Currie family! 









And we couldn't photograph Andrew without photographing big sister and brother, Adrienne and Jacob!






Meet Samantha and Lucy! {Baton Rouge Child and Baby photographer}

Wednesday, June 01, 2011



What a beautiful day it was at the LSU lakes when we met to photograph baby Samantha and big girl Lucy!  Lucy was visiting her baby cousin Samantha from Florida, so a perfect time for a photo session.    I don't typically photograph 2 month olds, because they are in the stage where they won't sleep on command, but they still aren't focusing very well.  But, Samantha did such a great job!  And Lucy was just a perfect little model - I love the ones with she and her Mommy!
