I had the pleasure of meeting up with Rori and Junior in uptown New Orleans to celebrate the upcoming arrival of their baby girl with a fun and fabulous maternity session. At 30 weeks, Rori was still tiiiiiny with the cutest little baby bump. R + J (and R’s parents too!) – I hope you enjoy the sneak peek!

I have a couple very patient clients that are awaiting their sneak peeks – and this lovely family is one of them. The S family contacted me for pictures of their two year old son, John, while they were in New Orleans visiting family. Like most two-year olds, John was far more interested in exploring the park than getting his picture taken. Luckily exploring the park makes for great pictures!
at 12:31 in the afternoon I was blessed to give birth to my second beautiful son. It’s hard to believe that time has flown so quickly. Today he crawls like a madman, pulls up on everything, cruises around the living coffee table and laughs hysterically at everything his brother says or does to him. Logan is truly just a sweet, happy baby and a pleasure to be around. I can’t believe that in just eight or nine weeks my bouncing baby boy will turn ONE. It’s so bittersweet. I love watching him grow and develop and reach new milestones, yet I’m so sad to see that chubby, jolly baby slowly fading from his sweet face.
There’s something about newborn sessions that always gets me. Photographing those sweet, tiny, squishy bundles of joy lets me relive the excitement of my own boys’ births. Those breathless, sleepless first days of wonder, euphoria and exhaustion.
Well, I recently had the opportunity to photograph newborn twins (check out Ella + Ryan) and like a baby junkie, I need more! So I’m looking for two families expecting a multiple birth. If you know someone that fits the bill, please forward them my information.
- One free session (session fee waived)
- One free print, 8×10 or smaller, from the session
- The newborn session must take place within the first two weeks after the babys’ birthes or, if the babies are in the hospital for two weeks or more, within the first week after they are released from the hospital
- You must be willing to sign a model release which allows me to use the images in my portfolio and on my website
- All sessions must take place on-location in the metro New Orleans area
Last Wednesday I had the pleasure of exhibiting at Lakeview’s Harrison Avenue Marketplace. If you’re not familiar with the Marketplaces, they are a great opportunity to sample yummy local food (Drago’s anyone?), listen to music, check out local artists and businesses, and visit with neighbors. As future Lakeview residents, my family and I have made a point of attending of these gatherings for the past year and each one has been great fun.
But this was my first time on the other side of the booth. I have to say, it was so much fun to meet so many nice families and talk about photography. And I had a great response to my drawing for a free session. In fact, that’s what this post is really all about. I grabbed the fish bowl full of entries yesterday and let Dylan pick the winner…
What’s better than a sweet bundle of newborn goodness? Two sweet bundles of newborn goodness of course! Ella and Ryan had a long journey into this world, but mom and dad are clearly enthralled with their new little arrivals. Check out the pictures below and you’ll see why.
Casting Call 1: Urban Maternity
I’m looking for two fun couples for maternity sessions in the French Quarter or Uptown New Orleans. I’ll be doing one session in each location so first choice goes to the first taker.
You must be available one or more of the following dates for the session:
You must be between 28 and 34 weeks pregnant at the time of the session. There will be walking involved so the earlier end of that timeframe is better.
You must be willing to allow the images to be used for promotional purposes by Amy Drouet Photography.
You must be game for some fun, playful and non-traditional maternity images!
Your maternity session fee is waived.
A free 8×10 image from your maternity session.
You can upgrade to my maternity/newborn session package for just a $75 session fee.
Spread the word! And if you’re interested in snagging one of these sessions, email me at email@example.com ASAP with your preferred date and location. Remember, I’m only taking two couples for this casting call and the first couple to reply gets first first choice of locations!
(And keep your eye out for another non-maternity casting call coming soon…)
