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!!

twins leo and isabella are 4 months old! {New Orleans twins photographer}

I cannot get over how much these twins have changed since their newborn session 4 months ago…they are still the most BEAUTIFUL babies, with the creamiest skin and head-fulls of dark hair!  Isabella is still petite, and Leo is gonna be a big guy, I think.  I seriously did not want to give them back to their mama and nanny after the session.  I just wanted to hold them all day!!!

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!

newborn clementine… {New Orleans newborn photographer}

Sweet, petite Clementine had a beautiful newborn session, complete with grandparents and aunt!  Whenever family is present, I always like to ask if they’d like to take a picture with baby.  I think it’s so important to include family whenever possible, and I LOVE multi-generational photographs.  I used to spend hours as a child going through old family photo albums, and I think that’s part of the reason I opened my studio — to create such treasured items for other families.  Little Clementine has a family full of love, and I know she will treasure these photographs when she’s grown, especially the ones with her Grandpa and her aunt, because I think from watching them with her that she’ll have a very special relationship with both of them.  So sweet!

newborn clayton…{New Orleans newborn photographer}

Mr. Clayton was a chunky guy already, such big cheeks on a newborn babe!  I love a chubby, squishy newborn.  He was such a good baby, just taking a couple of nursing breaks and otherwise sleeping almost the entire session.  He has beautiful lips and lashes, and I think he looks like both his mama and his daddy.  He’s such a handsome little guy!  I loved spending my afternoon with him and his sister-pup, who still isn’t quite sure what to make of him… 🙂













baby easton at 8 months…{New Orleans baby photographer}

Baby Easton is the HAPPIEST, most CHARMING, GIGGLIEST baby on the block.  Seriously, nothing gets this kid down.  Hannah and I LOVE seeing him at the studio.  There’s nothing better for the soul than a happy baby!  He laughs, and plays, and dances around (well, as well as he can while sitting up) while singing to himself.  It’s hilarious!  He has the most beautiful chubby cheeks, huge gorgeous eyes, and he’s kept his perfect little rosebud mouth that he’s had since the day he was born, which I also photographed.  I’ve seen him now 4 times, and I cannot believe he’s 8 months old.  Time flies!!!
