I have been taking big sister's pictures since she was a newborn. So I was thrilled about the opportunity to take baby Parker's photos...and to do some with Parker and Paisley together. And what a great big sister! Paisley was so sweet with "her baby" and we couldn't have been more proud of her...here are just a few of our favorites. Congrats Adam and Brittany...what a beautiful family you have!
This was our "Newborn Mini Session," which is a 1.5 hour session. And depending on what you are looking to accomplish, it is the perfect amount of time! We also offer our traditional Newborn Session (up to 3 hour in-studio session). If you are expecting and interested in a newborn session, contact us now for details!
This is our third year working with Galloway's. And we are so excited for another amazing year of dance photos. I love working with Miss Jenn and her staff and students from year to year. We are already gearing up for the recital photos that we will take at her studio in the spring. We did something a little different this year...instead of waiting until we do recital photos to do the headshots for the competition team, we all met a few weeks ago to do some outdoor headshots. It was a chilly morning...probably one of the only cold and windy days that we have seen in southern Louisiana this winter. But these girls and boys were troopers and did an amazing job! Aren't they all so adorable?! And now the moms can proudly show off their photos and buttons all year long at their competitions and events.

What a fun session this was! Patrick's Senior Portrait session started at our studio with cap and gown, tux and some in his football uniform. He has played football for Salmen High for the last 4 years...so I was so glad he agreed to do some serious shots in his uniform. And it was a family affair when we went to do his outdoor shots at Camp Salmen...his mom, dad and sisters all tagged along. We had a great time and created some great images also. This is one intelligent young man and I know that he has a bright future ahead of him. Congrats on your upcoming graduation, Patrick!
This is my little boy, who wrapped up his first year of school in May. I still can't believe how quickly Kindergarten flew by. It's funny how things work out sometimes. I actually signed the lease at our current location after dropping him off for his very first day of school back in August 2014. It was a day full of so many emotions. So here we are, almost a year later, ready for 1st grade. Time flies! As the last few weeks of school were winding down, I had an idea...but I just didn't have the time to execute it at the time. But I am too excited to wait until next spring to share it with everyone. So for my mommas (and daddies) who are preparing their little ones for Kindergarten like I was last year, I am excited to share that we will be offering a special next spring for Kindergarten Graduation. I still have to work out the details but we will most likely offer a "Quick Takes" option on a Saturday in May. So that would be the ability to come in (appointment or walk-in) for a portrait of your graduate and we would choose the one best photo to retouch and print for your package. Quick Takes packages typically start around $35 (and no session fee). We will also offer a "Mini Session" option as well. For the Mini Sessions, we will start with taking photos in the cap and gown and then do some additional portraits in an outfit of your choice. The Mini Sessions would be by appointment and we are still working on the details for that. But it's a nice option if you want to commemorate such a special time with some additional portraits. This special is perfect for homeschooled graduates as well!
And, of course, we will provide the cap and gown for the portraits.
If you want to be sure to know about this special (and a few others that are coming up this fall as well), be sure to keep up with us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/emariephotography1. And if you want us to add you to our mailing list so you can be sure to know about any upcoming specials, you can sign up by scrolling down to the bottom of the home page of our website: www.emariephotography.com/home.
I also want to give a HUGE thanks to all of the teachers, administrators, librarians, office staff, counselors, cafeteria staff, custodians and everyone else who works in our schools to teach our babies and keep them safe. From the team at E.marie Photography, we are wishing everyone a successful, fun and safe school year!
I had a blast creating these images of Nicole at the studio a few months ago. Her amazingly talented mom, Peggi, designs and produces custom dancewear...so she has an eye for fashion. They brought in a few fun pieces and we had fun trying shots with different tops, jewelry and scarves. Ms. Nicole is quite photogenic. She submitted an image that we created together at a session last year and won the photogenic award at the 2014 VIP New Orleans dance competition. And she won the photogenic award with these images for Starpower 2015. And the best part is that she is just as beautiful inside as she is on the outside.
Congrats, Nicole! We can't wait to see what is in store for you in 2016!
