Giles Family

I have been lucky to know this family since my family moved to NOLA 4 years ago. And now I am so sad that their time in the Big Easy is done and they are off for new adventures in Texas (happy for them, sad for me, of course!). I have always been amazed at their story--they got married and moved to New Orleans the summer of 2005 and lost everything in Katrina two months later. They came back, started over, had two beautiful girls, and always showed up with a smile! They are such a great example to me and I am grateful to call them friends. I'm glad they wanted some pictures here before they left, so the French Quarter was the perfect location! Good luck to you all on your next big adventure (and may it be a little less "event" filled as the adventure you just completed)!

I had the pleasure of meeting up with little Miss Maeve last weekend and I still can't get over what a little sweetheart she is! It was so fun to see how much she's changed and grown since I first met her in January. She is at such a fun age for taking photos--sitting up great, but not running away from me yet. :) It was fabulous! And she did not disappoint in the smile department...seriously! She kept them coming the entire time, despite the hot and steamy weather. I knew it was going to be a great session when this photo below was the FIRST one I snapped for the day. Could you ask for more?!

As I was proofing pictures, I couldn't help but throw in this little outtake below...she had just gotten a Cheerio and was concentrating really hard on eating it and this is the picture I got. I love that little face!
And it was followed immediately by this shot...what a little darling she is!
Thanks, Maeve & co. for braving the heat. I had a great time!

Liddle Family

This cute family was brave enough to beat the heat last week and I'm so glad they did! I had a great time with these guys--they were all smiles and so easy to photograph. So, of course I loved it. Their time in NOLA is coming to a close, which makes me sad, but I'm so glad they wanted some pictures before they leave because I had a great time! Good luck on your next big adventure!

I first met this little cutie when he was just one month old and lucky me, I got to photograph him again last weekend--now at 7 months old. And let me tell you, this may be one of the happiest babies I've ever met! He was all smiles and big blue eyes the entire time--he melted my heart. What a sweetie pie!
