brand new year, brand new LOGO! {New Orleans photographer}

After a loooooong hiatus on the blog, we’re finally back!  We’ve been SOOO busy creating beautiful portraiture for families since our last post in July, we got too busy to blog!  So we’re hiring additional help so that we can manage it all. 🙂  The next few posts are going to let you in on all the new things going on at Olivia Grey Pritchard Photography!  First off, you’ll see a new look to our site, blog, and marketing materials.  We hired the amazing Katie Loerts of Katie Loerts Design to create a new interpretation of our brand. The most important thing I wanted the new design to convey were our standards of simple and timeless beauty and our commitment to excellence.  I think Katie’s design beautifully illustrates these principles!

The new logo was just one part of the many new things we are doing at the studio to refine both our craft and the way we do business.  We are committed to providing our clients with the highest quality images, experience and products, and we will continue to invest in every area to provide that.  This year, we have invested in enlarging our studio space, a new continuous lighting system for the studio that newborns and babies prefer to strobe (flash) lighting, our new brand look, remodeling our studio viewing space, and an amazing private mentoring class with the world-renowned Julia Kelleher of Jewel Images.  I traveled to Oregon to spend several inspiring days with Julia and some model newborns in Julia’s lovely studio so that I could bring back such timeless, beautiful studio newborn portraiture to the heart of New Orleans.  More on that later!  For now, please enjoy our new look and new logo!

john robert’s sno-ball session!!! {New Orleans children’s photographer}

Isn’t this guy SO adorable?!  He prefers ice cream to sno-balls, but once he figured out the texture change, he got into the sno-ball. 🙂  I’ve photographed him since he was in his mama’s belly, and I can’t believe he’s so grown up already!  His 2-year-old session is just around the corner!!  I love his big smile, but he also has the most beautiful solemn face…check out the last heart-stopping image!!

nursing mini-sessions…{New Orleans nursing mini-sessions}

Our Nursing Mini-Sessions with Nola Nesting at Zuka Baby were a HUGE hit!   I’ve gotten a lot of messages from moms who were bummed they weren’t able to make it.  I am ALWAYS happy to add some nursing shots to your regular session.  If you’re a nursing mama, I really admire your commitment to breastfeeding your baby — I know it isn’t always easy or convenient, and I applaud you for doing it!  It’s such a HUGE part of your baby’s childhood, and I think it deserves to be professionally photographed as much as any milestone.  You are giving your baby something no one else can, and bonding in the process.  I absolutely love images of this unique time — your child looking up at you while he nurses, or smiling and laughing with a mouth full! — this time won’t last forever, and I know you will love looking back and remembering through these photographs.  And they will be such cherished images for your baby when he or she is grown one day!

And for visitors to the blog:  if you’re not comfortable viewing breastfeeding, this is not the post for you! 🙂

jude’s sno-ball mini-session…{New Orleans mini-session photographer}

I just realized I hadn’t posted Jude’s Sno-Ball Mini from back in July!  They were just so cute I had to share.  I LOVE how he showed up in his favorite outfit this summer, his jailbird black and white striped pajama pants and his NY shirt.  Because that’s exactly what I wanted these mini-sessions to be — real images of your kiddos being themselves.  Plus Jude’s gorgeous red, curly hair, bright blue eyes and peaches-and-cream complexion is just beautiful.  Love it!!!

our first sno-ball mini with ingrid, leo and noam!!! {New Orleans photographer]

LOVED. THIS. MINI-SESSION.  Loved it!!!  This family’s favorite sno-ball stand is Hansen’s on Tchoupitoulas.  And I gotta say, the cardamom-vanilla flavor is AMAZING.  Baby Noam was the star, which was perfectly appropriate since he is a Sno-Ball Vacuum.  Seriously, he finished his and then cleaned up the last melted inch left in everyone else’s cups.  I love his wild-man summer hair and how seriously he went after his sno-ball (wouldn’t let anyone else touch his cup or even his body while he ate!  He shrugged off his sister’s arm around his shoulder!).  His older brother Leo is really into long sleeves and pants in this triple-digit weather, and always dresses himself in those clothes like he doesn’t even feel the heat.  He wore a tie today because Ingrid had a bow on her shirt, and he felt he needed some lagniappe for his outfit, too.  (God, I love kids!!!)  Miss Ingrid has a space left where she’s lost bottom teeth that PERFECTLY fits a straw.  How convenient is that?!  I love these kiddos, and these pictures.  Call me at 601.297.1793 to schedule your kids’ mini-session during the month of July today!!!
