The Motherhood Event 2019 | New Orleans Baby Photographer


A mother is she who can take the place of all others but whose place no one else can take.” –  Cardinal Mermillod .


I think that about sums up the role of mothers. I had so much fun honoring 11 amazing mommas for my first annual Motherhood Event. Seeing so many mommas love on their babies made my heart more full than words can really express. It truly is my favorite part of my job, showing other mommas how beautiful they look while doing the most beautiful job in the world, raising tiny humans. Then, getting to spoil them with some swag bags only added to the fun. I am so thankful that some local businesses joined me in making this day special for them. 

Dolce Bakeshop provided the most delicious macaroons that I’ve ever tasted. They melt in your mouth in the most delicious way. The “thank you” sugar cookies were equally delicious. Brooke also makes amazing cupcakes, marshmallows, custom cakes…. AND loaded milkshakes that are aaaaaaamazing! If you haven’t checked out this little bakery in Long Beach yet, you are missing out.

Splash Boutique provided my mommas with the cutest earrings. Maddison has great taste. I’m pretty sure half of my closet comes from Splash. She gets new inventory in faster than I can buy it. LOL.

Sage Boutique provided my mommas with gift cards so they could get their shop on. The other half of my closet comes from here. I’m obsessed with my sandals I just got, and I wear them with almost everything. Chelsea also carries gift items including jewelry and the BEST smelling candles! She is right across the street from my studio on Main Street which is so dangerous for my budget y’all.

Elle Lane Designs provided my mommas with the prettiest pearl bar necklace. They are so dainty and can be dressed up or down. What Southern momma doesn’t love pearls, right? Erin and her husband run the company together and also offer hand stamped jewelry.

The French Potager provided fresh floral crowns for both my mommas and their bitty babes to wear. They smelled as amazing as they looked. I love Martha’s creativity in choosing florals that aren’t the usual and her extra flare she puts into her designs to make them unique. I also purchased some mini bouquets from her for each of my 11 mommas so they got something from her to carry home. She’s located right on Main Street just up from the studio.

…And that’s how 6 boss babe, small business owner women collaborate to make something amazing happen! I’m a huge believer in supporting other local businesses, so this was so dear to my heart.

I also could NOT have done this without my amazing assistant, Sasha, and my hair and makeup artists. Sasha kept us organized, on schedule, and cleaned up all while wearing her sweet Isla girl in her carrier… talk about some serious mom skills! Jacqueline (Jacq of All Trades Beauty) pampered my mommas on Friday, and Patricia (Beauty by Patricia Arroyo) pampered my mommas on Saturday. I love working with other artists to make a vision come to life. These girls know how to slay it.

And without further ado, let’s show off these mommas and their sweet babes!

I’m already looking forward to the second annual Motherhood Event for 2020. I’m not sure how to top this year, but I’m sure gonna try. I’m already brainstorming ideas. Thank you to all the mommas that trusted me with photographing these memories!
