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!

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!!!
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, 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!

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 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!!!
This sweet little beauty was born on my birthday, and I was lucky enough to be able to photograph her birth! I’m sure you remember her lovely mama’s maternity session below on the blog…as you can see, motherhood suits this mama very well, and Daddy is absolutely smitten with his little daughter. I was excited for this newborn session because I have loved photographing this little family on their journey from becoming a couple to a trio. Those fat cheeks, that perfect little rosebud mouth, and those huge eyes…baby Mimsy looks exactly like her mama with her daddy’s coloring. And she was born on the best day of the year, so now I have a new Birthday Buddy! 😉
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!
Little Otis has beautiful fair skin, dark blue eyes, and nearly black hair — just the most beautiful Welsh-looking coloring! He’s super sweet and chill, but already moving around at only seven months old! He loves wooden spoons, his ladybug toy, and books. His mama brought the book “Otis” for him to read in some pictures, and the book that she and Dad read to him every night. I loved photographing this sweet little guy!
