Birth photographer Baton Rouge

The anticipation, emotion, and excitement of your child’s birth story are all memories you will want to relive. The first breath, first cry, first kiss and first cuddle are moments you will cherish. Having a professional photographer capture those special memories will allow dad and other family members to focus on the mother and baby while I document the day you meet your baby.  If you are not comfortable having a photographer attend the birth, but you still want to document the story, then ask about the Fresh 48 – Welcome Baby sessions that take place within 48 hours of birth.

Do you have personal questions about birth photography that you may be afraid to ask (but shouldn’t be)?  HERE are your answers.

Bayou Rose Photography

Types of Photography: Bayou Rose Photography specializes in family, children, wedding and special needs photography.

Family and children's photographer Baton Rouge
As a documentary family photographer, my goal is to act as my clients’ personal storyteller. Families are funny, and sweet, and crazy; exhausting, and complex – they’re a million other things too, but the one thing they never, ever are is boring. At the end of every session, I want my clients to walk away with images that help them remember not just what their family looked like at the time in their lives that they spent with me, but who they WERE. Children grow into and out of phases and interests in the blink of an eye, milestones happen before we can catch our breath, and relationships between siblings and parents are ever-evolving. Every last second of the journey is worth documenting, and passing on as heirloom memories to future generations. Documentary sessions are available for children, siblings and families, and involve no staging or posing – just real, everyday life in all its beauty. I also offer a wide variety of albums and print products to help clients preserve their memories.

Leslie Pendleton Photography

Hey y’all! My name is Leslie and I love photographing newborns, families and children of all ages. I love keeping my sessions relaxed and fun. My favorite part about newborn sessions is when I’m able to capture all the tiny details, the special bond with mommy and daddy, big brother or sister interactions and even with the fur-babies too! What I love about family and children sessions is that it’s not always about the posed pictures but mostly about the interactions and fun moments shared between you and your loved ones. Children are so special and I feel it’s important to capture what makes them unique. Those funny faces or sweet expressions that help us remember their sparkling personalities. I love keeping the theme simple and the main focus on the sweetness of your baby or family members. Can’t wait to meet you!

Lifestyle photographer Baton Rouge

Hi Ya’ll! I am Kaela Rodehorst Williams, a lifestyle photographer based in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, specializing in maternity, newborns, children and families. My obsession with photography began when I stumbled upon my grandmother’s Polaroid camera at the ripe age of 3.  After going through rolls and rolls of film, taking photos of everything in sight, I realized how much I loved capturing one ordinary moment in time.  Since then, I have evolved into a “lifestyle” photographer documenting simple, everyday moments of beautiful people and their loved ones.

My Philosophy :: “Delight in the beauty that surrounds you.” Everyday, I try to delight in the land that I walk on, the people that I smile to, and the love that I share.
