Location Studio Portraits In New Orleans

Sarah had the good fortune of growing up in a wonderful New Orleans Mid-Century Modern house.   She also has two wonderfully creative parents who were open to the idea of shooting her senior portraits there.  On a location shoot like this I bring a small strobe kit and try to use it as little as possible.  That’s not hard with great daylight pouring into every window.  I was delighted that she turned out as sweet as her parents..

Call 504-486-2040 to book your senior portrait, on location, or shot in City Park Studio.

The workaholic/artist in me wanted a studio space but the recluse in me wanted a cozy house, so the many corner-grocery store buildings in town (pre-supermarket, each neighborhood had its own grocery) seemed like an ideal solution…(to be continued)
