Sessions in New Orleans!

I just can’t keep it to myself any longer! This project has been in the works for quite a while now, and I’m so happy to finally share it with you!

I’m coming to the Big Easy, and bringing my style of natural-light pet photography with me!



Residents of the New Orleans area are now able to sign up for time slots for a custom pet photography session! Here are the details:

~   WHEN: Saturday, September 10th (and Sunday the 11th, if the 10th fills up)

~   WHAT: one time slot gets you my signature Beagle Package, which includes a full hour of session time, an online gallery of 25-35 finalized images, and and an 11×14 print of your choice. Not to mention a darn good time! I’ll also give you a full introduction to my innovative product line.

~   WHERE: Audubon Park in New Orleans; we’ll meet near the fountain

~   HOW MUCH: $129

~   WHY: So you can have high-quality pet portraiture that you’ll absolutely adore. I’m talking about wall portraits that make you smile every time you walk by them, albums you’ll want to show off to all your friends, and digital images that you can share on Facebook to your heart’s content!

~   HOW TO BOOK: call this number, 850-255-0903, or email me at I’d prefer you to call, just so that we can make sure you get your first choice of time slots.


If you’d like to see examples of my work, you can visit my portfolio here, or watch this video featuring images from other (similar) park locations:



Unfortunately, this is a one-day-only type of situation. I’ll be leaving the Gulf Coast very soon, and going wherever my husband’s Naval career takes us. But I wanted to visit New Orleans one last time before I have to go – and what better way than to meet a few nice dogs while I’m there?? I hope I get to meet and photograph the furry member(s) of your family – and I promise we’ll have a fabulous time!



  1. My dog is crazy. Can you still photograph him/her? Absolutely! I have experience with all types of crazy! I welcome the challenge of a high-energy dog, and I love bringing shy/timid pups out of their shells. It helps that I have a never-ending supply of patience (and treats)! I think you might be surprised at how well your pup can pose for my camera.
  2. I didn’t see any humans in that video. Can I be in some of the photos with my dog? I thought you’d never ask! I love documenting the bond between people and dogs; I think it’s incredibly special. Here’s a gallery featuring pets & their people on my website. So yes, please, I’d like you to jump in on as many (or as few) photos as you want!
  3. How do I see my photos after the session? I’ll post the very best images in a password-protected online gallery as soon as possible after September 10th. You’ll have access to my entire product collection, which includes a DVD of your photos, canvas gallery wraps, custom-designed albums and much more.
  4. Will my dog have a huge ego after the session? Probably. He might prance around your house, just looking for cameras in front of which to strike another pose. It’s a common side-effect.



More questions? Give me a call and I’ll answer them! The best number is 850.255.0903, and email works too:


I’m SO EXCITED to visit New Orleans again – and with my camera + treat bag for the first time! I hope I’ll see you there!!

  1. I had a little giggle at the image of pups prancing around their homes with their newly-enlarged egos. Have fun with all your New Orleans shoots!
