New Orleans Born and Raised
This is Brother John Mai. His smile is so INFECTIOUS!!! He is one of the brothers at Christian Brothers School and since the opening of the 2nd CBS school on Canal Street, he has attended every school function with his camera and this great smile. He walks around with camera in hand asking you, "Can I Take Your Picture?" This guy will not only capture Every Single Person Attending but he does something remarkable. Brother John remembers your name. I'm talking from years before not just 5 minutes ago.
My niece Madeline, worked with me this day capturing images for the Mother/Daughter Luncheon at the Roosevelt Hotel. Madeline has an older brother that went to CBS at the City Park campus. Brother John asked Madeline for her name. She said, Madeline Melancon, and brother John finished her sentence with, "and how is your brother Michael doing and what about your mom?!" Madeline was shocked because that was two years ago when her brother went to CBS.
This post is happening today because every time I see Brother John Mai he reminds me to forcefully see the good with a smile! Talk to people with opened ears and lend your heart to the person in front of you at that moment. This is how we are supposed to live life. Anybody can walk around the room taking pictures but Brother John knows how to make you feel like we are all family and YOU DO MATTER TO HIM!
Our crazy busy lives should never be an excuse for the lack of humanity between us all.
Maybe you should screen capture his image above, print it and display it at work where you'll see it when life gets tough and you wonder where is the humanity....Brother John Mai will always have that smile on his face to remind you of YOUR HUMANITY!
Do you remember your high school senior pictures. Did you like them or love them? Did you remember the experience you had while working with the photographer?
I love creating an experience that is fun, memorable and creative! Many aspects of the session are discussed earlier, like the clothing selection, your style and where should we go on location that'll best match your style. Once we have those aspects in line, we schedule the day, pray for good weather and rock the heck out of your high school senior portraits.
If you would like to create something fun and creative with me, just email me and I'll make it all happen for you. email@example.com
These images of Courtney are stunning! The owners of Felicity Church restored the building in a way that showcases the organic age of the building without compromise. I had the pleasure of capturing Courtney's senior portraits years ago and yesterday she was the bride! I have been sitting on these images for a little bit until after the wedding so, here we go! I adore black and white images because it takes all the distraction away which is color and concentrates all focus on the subject matter.
If you are a new bride and you would like to do your bridal portraits here at Felicity Church, then give them a call and we will create something amazing with you.
Courtney and Jimmy were happily married yesterday with many friends and family celebrating with them. It is my absolute honor be her photographer for so many important moments in her life. I'm excited to watch their family grow!
I have another full blog post on the way when the images are developed. Have a wonderful weekend and stay tuned for more images to follow. :)
OMG OMG OMG!!!!! DO I have a ton of amazingly beautiful imagery to show you from this past weekend in Puerto Rico. If you are NOT following me via Youtube channel...now is the time to subscribe! I have vlogged along the way and the video and imagery is simply stunning. Heather and Andrew first of all are amazing people and personal friends of mine. After this weekend we are absolutely family and the images show our fun together. All of the planning and effort that went into this location and times of the day truly paid off in the images. Their guests enjoyed a postcard visual wedding with the atmosphere any bride would want for a tropical wedding outdoors. We can plan and plan and plan all we want, but in the end God gives you the day he had planned for you. Being in Puerto Rico showed us both the simple beauty of the area and what stopping to enjoy life around you is really important for our lives.
New Orleans and Puerto Rico have a lot in common actually. We both provide great music, food and culture for you to enjoy and we DO NOT make excuses for who we are as people. You are here to enjoy what we have thrived on for decades and this is a trait both New Orleans and Puerto Rico offers it's residents and guests. If you haven't been to either...what are you waiting for?
More images to come...check back soon!
Every little girl want to grow up to be a princess....so what's stopping you? Andrea has loved Disney her entire life and it's only fitting for her to have a Disney inspired wedding. Andrea truly went all out to include as many cool aspects of Disney into her special day. She created hidden Mickey's for the guest to participate and find. Her gown was complimented by a tiara crown that sparkled in the light. Even her groom's cakes were displayed in a way to look like Mickey ears. I knew this family was going to have a super fun wedding because their entire crew knows how to celebrate life together.
The images posted below tell a better story than what I can put into words. enjoy.
One thing that makes me feel so honored is when I get the chance to photograph both sisters for their high school senior portraits. These two ladies are one year apart and they both chose me for their photographer. WAYYY COOL! I also really like how both of their sessions are so different. I love creating something different with each client because no two people are the same so why should your photography be the same?
