Looking back on my photography journey, it is easy to see how my style and work have changed over the years. When I see my film photography, I see more of me in my work. As I gaze at images shot on film, there is a certain romantic and feminine quality that I love. I strive for classic and timeless images ALWAYS. I studied great photographers whose work will live forever, and that is what I want to create for my clients.

Having clients choose me to be a part of their day and having faith in me to document it, is a huge honor! When entering a wedding day, I ultimately want my clients to be happy. Hearing what they want out of their images and their big day is crucial. The bride in this particular shot had told me she wanted her wedding featured in @Vogue_wedding . . . talk about pressure! Though this was my bride’s goal, I did not enter her wedding day as if it were for a publication. I just gave it my all, 100% and focused on the task at hand—capturing timeless images for this couple that will live forever. So when #VogueMagazine did pick up this wedding later on, I was thrilled! I’m always striving for publications on a personal level, but ultimately, if my clients are happy, I’m happy.

One of my life’s biggest accomplishments was setting a certain goal for myself and achieving it. My husband and I moved to New Orleans in January, 2010 with a 10-week-old baby girl and lived out of suitcases in my parent’s house, as we renovated my grandparent’s home to move into. One day I was sitting in my mom’s kitchen with my laptop and simply decided, “I am going to start a business.” I didn’t know how I was going to make it work, but I just knew it was what I needed to do. “I’m going to be a top photographer.” That’s what I kept saying to myself over and over again. Then I worked, really hard—really, really hard—and made it happen.

Work hard, then work harder. The beginning of my photography business came with a lot of trial and error. I recently listened to an interview by @Forbes with @ashleylongshoreart, a Louisiana-based painter, and she explained how you don’t want success right away, you want to take that road to learn the ups and downs. This hits home with me. When I first started my business, I thought, “Jobs aren’t coming fast enough.” Looking back, I’m glad it was that way—I made mistakes daily that I learned not to do the following day. Reaching out to other successful photographers like @erichmcvey was SO helpful. Reach out and learn, meet other artists and share a bit of your heart with them. Workshops are amazing and so helpful and 1:1s are game changers. Diving in exactly where you are with another artist and learning, building and growing from the spot you are at now, is invaluable.
Thank you all for following along as I shared a bit of my heart and story! This community is one of a kind, and I’m so thankful to be a part of it!
