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!!

isabella is 2 years old! {New Orleans child photographer}

Sweet Bella is TWO years old, and still one of my favorite kiddos ever!  She can jump very high, and twirl, and RUN!  She is very generous with kisses, and when she runs to me to give me a hug it melts my heart every time.  I LOVE HER!!!

big boy eli…{New Orleans child photographer}

Little Eli is such a sweet little guy, and I’ve been photographing him since he was in his mama’s belly.  He’s so expressive, and has been since he was a newborn!  His mama is one of my favorite people in the world to sit and chat with, I wish we didn’t both work so much!  🙂

waiting for penelope… {New Orleans maternity photographer}

Big sister Lea was turning two, and baby sister Penelope was nearly on her way into the world for this session!  It was a beautiful session with one of my favorite families, and this time they had a second pup to add to the mix.  Lea was one of my very first Baby’s First Year babies when I opened my studio just before she was born — she was a tiny newborn and is still the most adorably petite little girl!  I hope she never grows too big. 🙂  Look for newborn Penelope on the blog soon!

sweet william…{New Orleans baby photographer}

Sweet little William comes from Baton Rouge for his sessions with me, and I’m so happy he does, because LOOK at him!!!  He is so funny and expressive.  He’s usually pretty pensive at first, and just hangs out for a few minutes, taking it all in.  Then he warms up and we all end up in stitches watching him!  He dances, makes the funniest surprised face I’ve ever seen on a 1 year old, and keeps a sharp eye out for cars and planes.  Such a boy.  I love him and his awesome parents!

coco the labradoodle puppy…{New Orleans pet photographer}

Hi, my name is CoCo and I WUUUUUV my mommy!!!  I like playing with my brother, too, but I stick to my mom’s side like glue and my eyes follow here everywhere she goes.  I am very mild-mannered and sweet, and everyone loves my soft, curly hair!  Miss Olivia says she loves the picture of my brother and me where we’re both screwing up our mouths at the same time.  I don’t know what we were doing there, but I love that picture, too!

1 year old and loose in the park! {New Orleans family photographer}

Sweet Keiran is such a gorgeous little guy.  It was FREEZING that day, like in the 30s.  But this guy was only in town from Chicago with his mama that day, and so we bundled up and crossed our fingers!  And…it’s one of my favorite one-year-old sessions ever.  The light was beautiful, this park was a perfect location, and we got some absolutely gorgeous images.  Thank you for always letting me take pictures when you come to town, guys!  I truly love seeing you.  🙂

an incredible din…{New Orleans child photographer}

make an incredible din

 

I love Calvin and Hobbes (who doesn’t?), and since little Rhys here looks so much like Calvin to me, today I had to use this little-boy-quote from the comic strip.  Isn’t it so spot on?  Is there a parent in the universe who doesn’t feel like their kid was saying this EXACT thing in his head at some point as he banged away at something (while they were praying the noise would stop)?  😉
