Family Session // The Nelsons

We first met the Nelsons in 2013, when we photographed their wedding. Since that time, we have had the wonderful privilege of photographing their beautiful family three additional times. It is truly an honor and privilege when a family continues to place their trust in us time and again to document their family. It is even a bigger honor when the Dad is a photographer himself! When we first started photographing their family, their little one was just learning to walk and she zoomed so much I would call her “the blur”! We are happy to say that the blur has slowed down and is even happy to give us a few smiles these days!! We are pretty much in love with this session, as it is a bit of a departure from the light we usually expect on a morning park session. The session was scheduled for a time when New Orleans was being inundated with a succession of super rainy days. In order to beat the rain, we moved the session up a day and shot immediately after sunrise. Given the rainy atmosphere, when we arrived it was still rather foggy, which lends a beautiful, ethereal quality to the images. That, in conjunction with the family’s choice of color pallette, looking at the sessions reminds me of a Monet painting.

The final image is a three generation shot that we were delighted to capture for the second time for this family! What a wonderful tradition to recreate the same image time and again, to really capture the changes in your family over time.

Sarah + Billy // Married

Sometimes, all it takes is a little wink and divine intervention and the next thing you know, you’re walking down the aisle!  Sarah and Billy were both about to throw in the towel on online dating when she winked at him on St. Patrick’s day, and he winked back.  Maybe it was the luck o’ the Irish, or intervention on a higher level, but whatever it was, it was clearly magical!  Once they met they instantly clicked and Sarah, a Texas Aggie with a knack for planning, admits that she did not need to call on her “emergency out” for their first date!! Since that fateful first date, they have continued to grow as a couple and family and last month they were married in a beautiful courtyard ceremony at Hotel Mazarin in the New Orleans French Quarter.  After the wedding, true to New Orleans tradition, they did a second line around the courtyard then led their guests into the reception.  Everyone had a great time dining and dancing, but the whole party really kicked up a notch when the Texas two-steppin’ began! Congratulations Sarah and Billy!  Wishing you many, many years of happiness!

Cecilia + Joaquin // Married

To the surprise and delight of their friends and family, Cecilia and Joaquin were married on a Monday evening in a low key ceremony in their living room with only an officiant and 2 witnesses present. Last month, they celebrated the marriage with all their loved ones present at a reception at the Audubon Aquarium with a costume party that was anything but low key! Whether you know them as Cecilia and Joaquin, Honey and Snoopy or CeCe and Lucky, it is obvious that their friends and family are crazy about them just the same! The night kicked off with with the wonderful and talented New Orleans Drag Band providing amazing music, and then DJ Kacey Chaos took the reins to kick off one heck of a dance party! After cocktails and speeches, the couple stepped out for their first official dance, then invited their guests to join in to dance the night away. From Bohemian Rhapsody to the Time Warp and everything in between, a fantastic time was had by all! Congratulations again to the newlyweds! Wishing you so many years of happiness.
