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!

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!

f family…{New Orleans photographer}

These three beauties are just so, so lovely, aren’t they?  Penny is the owner of the amazing interior design shop Eclectic Home on Oak Street.  If you haven’t been, go by soon!  They have some of the loveliest furnishings, textiles, lamps, etc. I’ve ever seen.  Penny’s daughters (and her grand-dog Drew) were such a joy to work with, and her beautifully styled (of course!) home in Uptown was the perfect setting.  It was a break from my norm of working with younger babies and kids, and I truly loved it!  A gorgeous young woman and a beautiful young lady on the cusp of womanhood = a wonderful session.

the L family…{New Orleans family photographer}

This was a fantastic session — beautiful setting, beautiful light, and THE MOST COOPERATIVE TWO-YEAR-OLD on the planet.  For real.  The sweetest little guy who lasted for over an hour of pictures.  I was amazed!  Little Gentry is now one of my faves, and I adore the image of his silhouette with his fat cheeks and little Buddha belly hanging over his waistband.  These are also some of my most favorite family portraits ever!  I love this sweet family, and handsome little charmer!

mickey is 1 year old! {New Orleans child photographer}

Little Mickey recently came to see me with Mom and Dad in tow for his one year session!  He still has the fairest skin, bluest eyes, and blondest hair ever. 🙂 Apparently the ONLY time he makes that funny, pouty face below is at his sessions with me — his parents literally call it his “Olivia face”!  We have one from literally every. single. session. in his First Year package.  He is a sweet little guy, and I cannot believe he’s a year old already!!

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!

horses shiloh and honey…with their humans {New Orleans pet photographer}

Shiloh and Honey, the beautiful horses here, belong to some of my favorite little people on this planet.  I have watched Kinley and Gardner grow from tiny babies into big kids, and while I hate that it’s gone by so quickly, I love seeing the people they’re growing up to be.  I met Adalyn and Burke a couple of years ago through Kinley and Gardner.  Since they are all the best of friends and both families got horses a few months ago, I squeezed this session into my schedule because I was so excited about seeing them and meeting Shiloh and Honey!  I actually knew I wanted to do it as soon as I saw that they had gotten horses, and I called their mamas up to plan it.  It was so fun, and I am IN LOVE with the images. 🙂

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!

3 sisters…{New Orleans portrait photographer}

Grace, Isabel and Caroline are triplets, and they are quite the trio.  They are so funny, and each so very different.  It was FREEZING on this day, but they’re so busy we didn’t want to move the session date — so we literally had the car pulled up to where we were shooting, and while I did individual shots I made the other two sit in the heated car!  I knew noses would start getting red and eyes would be watering after too long, so we moved quickly and the girls cooperated beautifully.  They got a little hyped up (as 3 pre-teens usually do) and it was SO FUNNY when Grace, who is always in charge, got her sisters in line by saying, “Be a first-time listener!” while I was arranging them in poses.  That was the first time I’d ever heard that, and it’s PERFECT!  Their mom says they hear it at school. 🙂  Brilliant!
