Kayla is a labor and delivery nurse with whom I've worked before, and she is legitimately one of the sweetest people I know - I was so glad to be there with her and her gorgeous little family for this new story in their lives. 

 

And what a story it was, man - the Bueche family got thrown a surprise curveball when they discovered that sometime in between mom's last appointment just a few days before, and the day Kayla was admitted, her baby had flipped and turned breech on her! The news made for some really emotional moments when they all learned they were bound for a surprise c-section.

 

Luckily, all of Kayla's work family was more than happy to be there for her every second of the way, and they all took great care of her and the newest Bueche. And did I mention that mom and dad didn't find out what they were having beforehand? I think the entire hospital was Team Girl, since the family already had two little princelings in the family. Dad Kyle's face when Kayla's OB called him over to check out the *ahem* "gender evidence" was priceless, and I have never in my life heard yelling like I heard out of those nurses and hospital staff! The whole room seemed to explode with excitement - and it was like a scene from Mission Impossible, as the nurses wheeled Kayla back to her room, giving it all they had to keep their faces neutral and the surprise intact for the (many) visitors who were coming to crash the Bueche recovery room. 

 

I'm so happy for this wonderful, sweet family, and I could barely wait to show off these emotional images!

Even though these moments were hard ones, seeing all of Kayla's family and friends circle around her to shower her with love and support was an amazing thing to witness! And she had such a sweet spirit about it all.

Baton Rouge Wedding Photographer | The Boykins at The Gatehouse https://www.bayourosephoto.com/blog/2018/8/baton-rouge-wedding-photographer-the-boykins-at-the-gatehouse I knew when Monique first contacted me about photographing their wedding at The Gatehouse that these two and this day were going to be magic. During our consult, Monique stressed that they were all about capturing the emotion of the day - they were looking for images that would be meaningful and all about family and friends, immortalizing the overall joy of their wedding day. 

No words could have made me happier to hear! And then when Monique told me that her brother, who had been away serving in the Navy for a long time, would be coming in for the big event, I knew emotions would be extra high. This is what I thrive on! I made it my mission to get the best, most emotional and meaningful images possible for this crew - and they made my job such a cake walk. Every single family member and friend present to witness these two getting married just radiated joy and happiness, all day long.

The Gatehouse was decorated just gorgeously, the weather was perfect, and everything went just flawlessly. From the unique wine-mixing ritual, to their minister singing the Lord's prayer, to the looks on the bride and groom's faces when they saw each other making me tear up every time I see their images...picking photographs to blog was one of the hardest things to do, ever!

The best. (For the record, the second attempt when smoothly).

Baton Rouge Birth Phographer The Montets at Womans Hospital C Section https://www.bayourosephoto.com/blog/2018/8/baton-rouge-birth-phographer-the-montets-at-womans-hospital-c-section YOU GUYS. I've got a story to tell you about this little bit named Nora Rose, right here.

 

This kid has got the strongest mama imaginable, I'm not even kidding. Ashley went through a long and painful labor labor with little Nora turned sideways and digging in her heels a bit, and she gave it all that she had. Mama left nothing on the floor that day, and she rocked it all throughout her laboring stage and right into the OR for her c-section when their awesome team at Woman's Hospital decided that a ceasarian was what was best for everyone.

 

I loved so much about this birth story - as much as I hate seeing my clients in pain, it also makes for some wonderful opportunities to show the quiet grace displayed during such a bumpy ride. All of the sweet moments when Ashley's mom and husband were just holding onto her through the waves of contractions were so emotional, and beautiful to capture. I loved documenting the worry on Ashley's mom's face before heading into the OR - what parent doesn't agonize over their baby about to undergo a procedure? Worry is tough to document sometimes, but emotions like that are the ones that show us how much we are loved, looking back on those images. 

 

One of the things I'm always thinking about at births is what the baby I'm watching being born will see in the images I'm taking, one day. I always try to stress to clients that birth sessions are not all about the birth, really - the images that will be most important to you later are the ones which tell the story of your family's relationships, and all the love in between. I want Nora to see, one day, how stoic and brave her mom was through a really hard labor, and how much her daddy loved her and wished he could take away her pain. I want her to see how much her grandma believed that her mom could rock childbirth - even though she was battling her own fear for her baby the whole day. I want her to see the very first time her grandparents gave her that, "Whatever you want, it's yours" look for the first time.

 

And, let's not forget my very favorite reaction of all time - Ashley's brother's look of, "What the &%#!? is this?!" at Nora being placed into his arms for the first time. It was priceless, and it is absolutely going to become a featured image in my portfolio - it was really that funny!


Anyway, enough jabbering - check out this perfect little chunk and her lucky little family! <3

What Is Birth Photography, And Why Is It So Expensive? https://www.bayourosephoto.com/blog/2018/7/what-is-birth-photography-and-why-is-it-so-expensive Okay, friends - gather 'round. You've got questions about birth photography, I know, so let's talk about them. 

 

If you're here, odds are that sometime in the not-so-recent past, you decided to look into birth photography. Maybe a friend of yours had a session done, and you fell in love with the images. Maybe you saw something on social media about it, or learned about it on a tour of your local hospital. However you found out about it, odds are that your initial reaction fell into one of two categories:

 

1) Oh, wow! That's such a great idea!

2) WAIT - THEY TAKE PICTURES OF WHAT, NOW?

 

I get these reactions all the time when I tell people what I do, and both are totally normal. If you knew immediately that birth photography is something you would love, you probably still have a few questions about how it all works. If you were a little confused--maybe even put off--at the concept, you definitely have lots of questions that need answering.

And I bet that chief among the questions that both groups have is, "Why, for the love of all that's holy, is birth photography so expensive?!"

No worries, though - we're going to talk all about the Hows and Whys of birth photography, here, including the numbers aspect - so that you can make the most informed decision possible as you decide whether or not it's right for you and your family. Oftentimes, a person's hesitation is a result of not understanding how birth photography really works, and why it's a great thing to have.

So, let's chat about things, shall we?

 

Why Birth Photography?

 

Copyright Bayou Rose Photography 2017

 

You think you're going to remember everything - but trust me, you won't. 

Birth is a wild ride, filled with adrenaline, and hormones, and all kinds of (mostly) wonderful chaos. When you're preparing for a baby--whether it's your first or your 10th--you do everything possible to get ready. When the time comes, though, your body and your baby are the ones in charge, despite all of your planning. Exhaustion, overwhelm, and all of the hormones you're only about 60% sure you can pronounce correctly swamp you, and your focus narrows to one thing: getting that baby out

This is totally natural--it's what your body is supposed to do--but as a result, you're going to miss the little things. You won't see how tightly your partner holds your hand; the wince on their face at every painful contraction. You won't see the look on your mom's face--the one she always makes when she's worried but trying to not look worried. You won't see the look on both of their faces as they wish they could take on the pain for you.

You'll miss the look at the moment of birth that can only be described as dumbstruck as your partner realizes that yes, it's really real--you're parents, now. 

And although when you're in labor, the discomfort and exhaustion and is-this-over-yet feelings are front and center; after that baby is in your arms, all of that fades away. That's natural, too--otherwise, why would any mother go through childbirth more than once?

The consequence of that, though, is that you miss out on seeing yourself at your absolute most fierce. You're going to feel overwhelmed, and exhausted, and there's going to be a moment when you think, "Maybe I can't do this," and then you're going to do it anyway, because you know that your baby is waiting to meet you. So you're going to gather every last bit of strength that you've got, and you're going to get it done, because that's what mothers do.

That's a powerful thing, that moment - and it's worth documenting.

After your baby is born, there's a lot happening simultaneously. Suddenly, you are two separate beings, instead of one nested inside the other. As a result, you're going to miss a few things as your birth team is caring for you, while baby's team is caring for them. As your birth photographer, though, I capture every moment for you--even the ones you can't see.

It's not just about the baby

As much as I love photographing the moment of birth, many times my favorite images from a birth story are the ones that come before and after the big event--and those are the ones most difficult for a non-professional to photograph. I don't want to just photograph the birth, because that's not your entire story--I want you to see how much your partner loves you while you're laboring, and how instantaneously you both fall in love with your baby as you count all of their fingers and toes during that precious post-birth bonding hour. I want you to see how overwhelmed with joy and excitement your parents are at meeting their grandchild--and the look on their faces as they begin plotting all of the spoiling they'll do. I want you to have beautiful images of your grandparents holding that tiny little piece of their legacy--because they won't be around forever, and your baby will one day treasure that image of their great-grandparent snuggling them close.

You're an expert at your job - just like I'm an expert at mine

My job as a birth photographer is not just to photograph the birth itself--anyone with a decent camera can do that. More importantly, my job is to photograph what your birth means to your family--it's important to realize that photographing the event, and photographing your story are two very different things. As an objective and experienced observer, I will notice and capture moments that a friend or relative with a camera--or even Dad--will not. Hiring a professional there to capture everything also allows you all to be fully present in the moment, rather than worrying about taking photos yourselves.

I've invested in some of the best photographic equipment appropriate for the job of documenting births, which is just going to do a better job than a smartphone. There, I said it. Don't crucify me, but it's true. Birth often takes place in low-light environments, with lots of clutter all around you, and a million different things going on in every frame. The newest iPhone or point and shoot is just never going to replace professional equipment, a trained eye, and a whole lot of experience.

 

Experience matters

Okay, let me be clear about this one. Your medical professionals are always going to be smarter than me--by all means, you need to listen to Team White Coats and Team Scrubs. When it comes to all things medical, they are most definitely the ones in charge. 

However, I've been told many times that my presence as a birth photographer is a comforting one. I've been on both sides of the birth process myself, so I know what it feels like to be a laboring mom, overwhelmed and exhausted, with a million questions fighting for attention in my head. There's something to be said for having someone there with you whom you've built a personal relationship with over the months of your pregnancy, able to chat with and bounce questions off of. Fathers in particular often have questions that they are hesitant to interrupt the busy medical staff to ask - and I can often relate my own personal experience as well as things I've learned from working with clients.

Birth photography isn't for everyone

Look, here's the thing. I can list every reason in the world for Team Pro Birth Photography, and some people are just never going to be on board. Maybe they don't really "get" why they would need professional photographs of their birth, maybe they can't get past the hangups they have about it--maybe there is just absolutely no convincing their partner that it's a good idea, no matter how hard they try. Maybe they just can't afford it, much like I will probably always lust after the $44,000 Hasselblad H5D-50c medium format camera, while I will likely never come closer to it than (carefully) pressing my nose against the glass of an extremely upscale camera store display window. If it's not for you, that's totally fine--but if it is, I want you to be able to make an informed decision.

 

So, on the subject of affordability...

Here's where we get to the "For the love of all that's holy, it costs how much?!" part. I didn't forget about it, I promise.

If you've decided that maybe this birth photography thing is worth looking into, you've likely put some feelers out there and experienced a bit of sticker shock at the prices you've been quoted. My birth stories start at $750--although the market fluctuates somewhat, most seasoned professionals will not charge less than that. And you know what? I totally feel you if that number is shocking. It seems simple on the surface, right? It's just taking pictures, man - how hard is that, really? Why would it cost more than your family portraits, or newborn photos - probably more than both combined - just because it's a birth session? 

I've heard every shocked exclamation and seen every taken-aback look imaginable, folks. But the thing is, most people have that reaction because they have no clue how the whole shebang works. Once they do, most of the time they "get" it. They don't always turn around and book a package, but they get it

Once a birth photographer accepts a session, we reserve what's known as an "on call" period. During this period of time, we are absolutely committed to you and being there for your family. We don't schedule any other clients during that time period who cannot be rescheduled easily and at the last minute, we prepare to walk out of our kids' school functions should they conflict with your baby's arrival timeline, and we leave family dinners with our food cooling on the table so that we can race to the hospital to be there with you. We have to be as ready as you are to race to the hospital at any given moment, whether it be at 2am or 10pm--and we are your ride-or-die partners until the end. I've attended labors which have progressed so fast that I have skidded into the delivery room with only minutes to spare, and I've photographed moms who have stayed on the cusp of "could deliver at any moment" for hours and hours. As professionals, we have to be prepared for anything, and we work closely to build trust with your birth team so that they will allow us the access that we need to photograph your story even when things get hectic.

I don't say any of this to portray we birth professionals as martyrs, but to communicate just how much we believe in the power of birth photography. We do it because we love it, and we love being there to support you and capture you at your fiercest. The power of birth and the miracle of witnessing new life never ceases to give me chills, and I feel privileged to live in a time where I have the tools to document it in all of its uniqueness for each of my clients.

To do this job reliably, and to do it well, necessitates a lot of work and dedication. The actual process of photographing is often the easiest part of our jobs--but before that part comes the client meetings, getting to know you and your needs; the checking-in texts and emails for moms who are often in full-blown pregnancy brain mode. We answer emails thoughtfully, and always have our phone on full volume so that we can be ready for every call or text about contractions--even if it does turn out to be just a false alarm. We charge batteries--many, many batteries--and have our bags packed and with us wherever we go. All of this work occurs before photographing your birth--before we get back to our desks to safely store your images and begin the process of editing them and creating a beautiful final product for you.

So, what you're paying for is not just pictures--you're paying for passion, talent, and commitment. You're paying for trustworthiness, and experience, and finely honed instincts. Cadets in the armed forces probably take more time to wake and dress to be out the door than I do at this point.

Sure, you can find someone to do it for peanuts - but is that person really who you want with you throughout this process? 

If birth photography is something that you feel is right for your family, I'm more than happy to offer payment plans--and you can even add me to your baby shower registry information! Like with anything else, investing in quality work is not cheap, but the remorse experienced after going with a less satisfactory option is often too little, too late.

 

FAQs

Q - Okay, so I know why an on-call birth is expensive, but I have a scheduled induction/c-section planned. Would a birth session be cheaper then?

A - Great question - but nope. Let me tell you why: Do you know who doesn't care about the fact that you and your birth team planned an induction or section one little bit? Your own precious bundle of joy, that's who. The most important thing I've learned about birth over the years is that there is absolutely no predicting it. So, even if you do have a time scheduled on your hospital's board, your baby could very well decide to come before that date. If you're having a surprise section, things will be extra rushed, because your medical team is not going to put everything on pause until I can pack my bags and get there for you--their first priority is the health and safety of mom and baby, so if I'm not already at the hospital, I will likely not be able to make it in time if I am not already prepared. Additionally, I believe that all birth is equal and worthy of the same level of commitment from me - so I don't feel it would be fair to charge one mother less because she delivers via c-section or induction, than I would another mother who goes into labor on her own and has a vaginal birth.

Q - What if I want to book a session, but my partner isn't exactly on board?

A - This is probably my most frequently asked question. I think it's probably some ingrained protective instinct, but it's natural for partners to be hesitant about a stranger in their space during such a sensitive time. Many times, having a meet-up helps a lot - we can go over the hang-ups that partners have, and they get a chance to meet met and realize that I'm a professional with a job to do, just like everyone else in the room with you that day will be. And also, I like to consider myself a pretty cool person. ;) I've never had a partner regret having me in the room to photograph - not once. Again, most of the time, hesitations just come from lack of understanding! Maybe they'll change their mind, and maybe they won't - but it can't hurt to get to know one another and talk things over.

Q - Isn't having a stranger in the room during birth a little invasive?

A - Okay, do me a favor. I want you to take a sec and really think about all of the things your birth team will be assisting you with while you give birth - you've read the books, right? It's a lot. It takes a village, for real - there will be multiple people involved with the process of helping you bring your baby into the world, and--spoiler alert, here--many of the processes involved are less than gloriously dignified. It's just how it works, really. All that to say that I am often the least invasive person in the room--and I often am told that I was so low-key, my clients forgot I was even there. Plus, if I do my job right, we won't be strangers by the time you deliver! Many of my clients have become good friends, and I regularly scroll their social media pages to go all googly-eyed over baby pictures (yes, I'm "that" person).

Q: What exactly gets photographed? Is my business going to be all over the internets?

A: Okay, I lied when I said the whole what-if-my-partner-isn't-on-board question was my most frequent--this one's it, for sure. What woman isn't put off by the possibility of one of the most vulnerable times in her life being on public display? But I've been in that same vulnerable position, so I know how it feels. Rest assured that I am very discrete regarding what I post publicly--and what I photograph depends on your comfort level, as well as what your birth team allows. Digital images included in your package are protected with a secure password that only you receive--and I will always check with you before posting anything online that may be considered sensitive.

Getting to know one another during the booking process, as well as throughout your pregnancy, means that we go over all of these little things so that we're all on the same page when it's go-time. I know the term "birth photography" probably conjures all kinds of extreme-possibility images in your head at first, but trust me - it's not about the crotch shot! 

 

Q: When should I book?

A: The earlier, the better. Most clients book me shortly after their first trimester--I only take a limited number of birth sessions per month in order to fully commit to my clients, so once my calendar is full, that's it! That said, if you're a bit of a procrastinator (and if there's ever a time in your life when that's completely understandable, it's when you're pregnant) know that I have booked births as close as two weeks before a mom's due date! So, drop me a line and we'll chat.

What Is a Fresh 48 Session | Baton Rouge Birth Photography https://www.bayourosephoto.com/blog/2018/7/what-is-a-fresh-48-session-baton-rouge-birth-photography So you've heard the term "Fresh 48" - but what is it?

 

Baby Kai, here, is going to help me with a little show and tell session, today. 

(Everybody say hi, Kai!)

 

A Fresh 48 session is a session I perform at the hospital, within the first 48 hours of your baby's birth. We document every little moment from skin-to-skin time with mom and baby, to meeting dad, all the way through siblings and family meeting the new little price or princess for the first time. I love photographing this time, because there are so many wonderful, meaningful moments packed into these first few days. These sessions are for couples who want beautiful images of the first few hours of their baby's life, but may not opt for a full birth session.

 

Check out a few of my favorite images from Kai's Fresh 48!

Baton Rouge Wedding Photography | B and D at White Oak Plantation https://www.bayourosephoto.com/blog/2018/6/baton-rouge-wedding-photography-b-and-d-at-white-oak-plantation Lemme tell you about Bailey and Dustin, y'all. I can't even explain how much I loved spending the day with these two and their crew. When I say Bailey is "my people", I mean that I was amazed all day long at how similar we are to one another! She got my "Friends" jokes, we laughed all day long together, and SHE EVEN SUN-SNEEZES JUST LIKE ME! 

 

If you don't know what a sun sneeze is...it's a genetic (AND TOTALLY REAL THING, which my husband still doesn't believe, even after years of marriage to me and my sun sneezes) thing that causes you to sneeze when you walk out into the sun. It's such a rare thing, it was totally hilarious to me that we BOTH do it. (SO, THERE, HUSBAND).

 

High five for working with your "people." It's the little things. ;)

 

These two got married on one of the most gorgeous days of all of the days in South Louisiana, at White Oak Plantation. Dustin was SO adorable, misting up a bit while watching Bailey walk down the aisle, and they exchanged vows under a stunning flower arbor in front of all of their friends and family. After the ceremony, we got some stunning portrait images, then partied the night AWAY at the reception, y'all. It was so much fun.

 

Check out some of my very favorites from the day!

A little secret: not one person ever knows "how" to do the twisty-arm-toast-thing. But it's almost always hilarious, trying to figure it out.

Baton Rouge Bridal Photography | Bailey at White Oak Plantation in Baton Rouge Louisiana https://www.bayourosephoto.com/blog/2018/6/baton-rouge-bridal-photography-bailey-at-white-oak-plantation-in-baton-rouge-louisiana Bailey + Dustin = MARRIED! 

I'm so excited for these two, and am all giddy with excitement, sharing Bailey's bridals. She looked so perfect for her bridal session at White Oak Plantation, and I can't wait to show you guys their wedding images! Check them out! Make sure to scroll alllll the way to the end to get a glimpse of what Bailey's little brother was up to during her session! ;)

LAWD, I love a good black and white silhouette in a gorgeous dress!

Bailey's little brother may or may not have darted by behind her right before this frame, waving a fishing pole in one hand and a freshly caught worm in another.

Okay, so there's a fish-able pond on White Oak's property - which is something I *somehow* never knew. Bailey's little brother is fishing OBSESSED, and had to bring his fishing pole to the session, in hopes that the White Oak staff would let him fish. Lo and behold, this kid pulled up fish after fish, the whole time we were there! It was nuts. I've never seen anyone with such luck with fishing! So funny!

Baton Rouge Birth Photography | Baby Corbin at Woman's Hospital in Baton Rouge Louisiana https://www.bayourosephoto.com/blog/2018/6/baton-rouge-birth-photography-baby-corbin-at-womans-hospital-in-baton-rouge-louisiana Oh, Baby Corbin...you couldn't possibly be any more loved! 

This little bit right here made his grand entrance into the world last Thursday at Woman's Hospital in Baton Rouge, and I had the very great pleasure of being one of the first people there in the room to welcome him to the world. As always, the wonderful staff at Woman's was phenomenal, and after a relatively easy labor (even though he did drag his feet just a little bit there at the end), Corbin was placed, safe and sound, into the waiting arms of his mom and dad. 

Speaking of Dad...how amazing was Josh's reaction to seeing his baby boy for the first time? He told me before we got going that he was probably going to get emotional - and mannnn, he did NOT disappoint! Seeing him get choked up made me tear up a little bit! 

And then there's Mom, Holly - if there was ever a more natural mother, I don't know who it'd be. She snuggled little Corbin into her arms and in no time at all, he looked like he'd always been a part of their lives. She was a total natural!

Anyway, enough from me - check out a few of my favorite images!

I love this quiet moment between Holly and Josh, just holding onto one another in the calm before the storm!

Holly's brother didn't get a chance to meet baby Corbin - the family lost him not long before the birth. This was a special image to show that he'd been there in spirit that day. <3

Baton Rouge Wedding Photographer City Club of Baton Rouge | Mallory and Alex https://www.bayourosephoto.com/blog/2018/6/baton-rouge-wedding-photographer-city-club-of-baton-rouge-mallory-and-alex I have an awesome wedding for you guys tonight. I love photographing weddings in downtown Baton Rouge, and Mallory and Alex's wedding at the City Club of Baton Rouge was such a wonderful experience. The girls got ready at the Hilton Downtown, and the boys had some fun on the upper floors of the City Club. The ceremony and reception were so well thought out and every detail was perfect for these two wonderful people and all of their friends and family. 

Speaking of friends and family - I often talk about how a wedding day is all about the people in it, and not so much about the "stuff". Mallory and Alex were surrounded by some wonderful people all day long this day - and they all made for some great images with the two of them. The ceremony was made extra sweet when Mallory and Alex each gifted each others daughters with special necklaces declaring their promises to always be there for them. How wonderful is that? The girls are only one month apart in age, and they were the best of friends all day long - it was so cute.

At the reception, I am not kidding when I say I've never had a father of the bride who tore up the dance floor quite like Mallory's dad did! It was so fun, watching the whole crew have such a blast, all night long. Check out some of my favs from this incredible day!

There are three kinds of drinkers, I am told...the varying degrees of OJ to alcohol ratio in these drinks was pretty funny. ;)

The preacher had the parents--and the girls--bless the rings before Mallory and Alex exchanged them. So sweet!

She was so patient, waiting for the cake to be cut. Or at least she acted like it. ;) 
PS - this is exactly the way that *I* look at cake, kid.

New Orleans Wedding Photography | M and J at The Tigermen Den https://www.bayourosephoto.com/blog/2018/5/new-orleans-wedding-photography-m-and-j-at-the-tigermen-den Have I got a treat for you guys today! One of my favorite New Orleans weddings is up on the blog. It was fun, and crazy, and non-traditional, and all-around awesome - I can't wait for you to see these images, shot for Amanda Weir Photography at The Tigermen Den in New Orleans.

One thing I always discuss with couples when we schedule our consult is the possibility of things going "wrong" on their wedding day. Now, I say "wrong" here with very deliberate quotation marks - it's my view that it's when things get off track that the day really becomes yours. Because, let's be honest, here - if every single thing on a wedding day goes exactly according to plan...it's gonna make for a really boring day. I've photographed a lot of weddings at this point, and you know what? A lot of the same things happen on every wedding day - there's a (usually) white dress, a walk down the aisle, some vows, and a kiss to seal the deal. Before that, there's the prep, and after that, there's some dancing and general drunkery. And if that were all that happened on the wedding day, they'd all end up looking the same. It's the little things - the unpredictability, the nerves, the I-forgot-the-rings-at-the-hotel moments; the oh-crap-it's-raining moments; the let's-just-wing-it-and-get-married moments...those are the stitches which hold the fabric of your memories together. They're what make your day yours - and no one else's.

 

Matthew and Juni's wedding is a great example of how things going "wrong" on a wedding day can make it absolutely spectacular. They had the best attitude about the day - they just wanted to get married, and have fun doing it. All of the little details in between were just lagniappe! It didn't matter a bit that it was raining - I brought out my trusty clear umbrellas and we had a blast creating some rainy day portraits. And Juni was so cool when it came time for post-wedding portraits - that chick hiked up her dress, took off her shoes and we took a walk around New Orleans to find some super cool street art to serve as their backgrounds. And The Tigermen Den was an amazing venue - the mood was just what they wanted. I loved the moments between Juni and her mom as her mom gave her speech - the look of teary betrayal on Juni's face when her mom actually did make her cry, despite promising not to...that's the kind of thing I live for documenting. We made so many memories on this day, and I love the way it all came together. 

 

Check out a few of my all-time favorite moments!

One of the most fun things of doing a second line through new Orleans is how into it all of the spectators get! Here, a stranger and her baby dance with the couple in celebration! There are no strangers in NOLA.

We had some fun with the puppy, then got some gorgeous shots of the two of them and the bump! Holly's dress was just stunning, and Audubon Park made for an amazing backdrop to really showcase that lovely pregnancy glow.

Baton Rouge Birth Photographer | C-Sections are Amazing https://www.bayourosephoto.com/blog/2018/4/baton-rouge-birth-photographer-c-sections-are-amazing April is National C-Section Month, in the event that you've missed the memo. Posts seem to be everywhere about it right now, and I absolutely adore all of the positive chatter surrounding it. I just couldn't resist putting together a blog post of my own on the subject - in large part because I've been lucky enough to be along for the journey of c-sections with my clients quite a few times now, and they have created some serious magic with me. I'm really, really proud of all of my birth moms (and dads!), and I feel so lucky to be trusted with the bad-ass moments in which parents are born - however their babies come into the world.

As a family photojournalist, my job is often not about the physical act of taking photographs - it's more about observation, and instinct. It's vital to read the scene, be observant of the emotion present, and remain respectful of the sacredness of the moments in which lifetime memories are made. It's really important to me to not be intrusive to the story which I'm photographing, and allow things to unfold as they will. I am a trusted, silent observer wielding a memory-capturing machine in those precious moments.

C-sections are fascinating experiences, in that some things are very predictable - the orderly professionalism of the medical staff, the rigorous attention to detail that ensures a successful medical procedure and healthy mom and baby. Lists are checked, sponges are counted, sutures are placed in a pattern that happens the same way, day in and day out for countless surgeries. Warm, and kind, and reassuring; medical staff nonetheless rely on predictability to ensure a happy outcome. 

And yet, in the midst of the routine, there are always unexpected moments which make each experience unique - the pages of each family's story unfurl just a little differently. These small bits of chaos in the midst of a calm storm keep me on my toes, and make my photographer heart happy.

Will parents cry? If they do, will they be happy tears, or overwhelmed tears? Will Mom wave jauntily as she is wheeled into a procedure which to her is a complete unknown? Will Dad pace anxiously as he awaits entrance into the operating room, or will he remain stoic until the moment his child is placed in his arms (at which point he will crumble)? I never know, really - all I know is that there is magic building in the moments between donning my ever-attractive scrubs, mask and hat and when the first outraged infant cry fills the air.

Every once in a while--usually in some ridiculous "Mom Group"--I stumble upon someone's snide opinion that c-sections are not "real" childbirth.
"That baby wasn't delivered," they exclaim, self-righteous fists shaking in the air, "it was surgically extracted!" As if it doesn't count, somehow - as if their own experience of pushing out their offspring the good old fashioned way of the pioneer woman is in some way worth more

And at first the words make me angry, then they make me roll my eyes, and then they just make me sad. Because Pioneer Woman doesn't understand what motherhood truly is, really. Motherhood is realizing that having a baby the way that you thought you would isn't more important than your child's health. She hasn't put her life and her child's life in the hands of a room full of mostly-strangers because she knows that they're going to help her have a healthy baby that a woman in her position maybe wouldn't have been able to have just a few short decades ago.
Women like that have never lain prone and full of emotion, waiting with bated breath to lay eyes on their child, all the while knowing that control is mostly out of their hands. There's a different kind of bravery in that.

A baby is born when a child leaves its mother's body, but a mother is born between one anxious breath and the next one filled with relief at seeing her child. That moment when the whole world--including the operating room and the medical staff and the bright shiny lights--all disappears and her heart doubles in size - that moment of motherhood-birth is universal, whether it happens in a birthing room or operating room. 

All birth is magical - every frazzled, exhausted, worried, elated second of it, regardless of what path it takes.
But damn, if c-section moms aren't all things brave and bad-ass.

Baton-Rouge-Wedding-Photographer-Destination-Tyler-Texas-The-Folmar https://www.bayourosephoto.com/blog/2018/4/baton-rouge-wedding-photographer-destination-tyler-texas-the-folmar This wedding just couldn't come fast enough for me - I was *so* excited to photograph Erin and Christopher's wedding at The Folmar, in Tyler Texas. I love destination weddings - and they're extra wonderful when I get to combine spending time with wonderful clients-turned-friends with spending time with my homie Marissa, who lives in Texas and was second photographer for me on this one! 

The day was an emotional one, and I couldn't get enough of it. The weather was perfect, the sunset was amazing, and every little detail was just perfect. The sunset ceremony was followed by an awesome party during which I was witness to a couple of grandmas getting down like no grandma has gotten down before! ;) 

Check out a few of my favorite images, and the stories behind them!

Erin and Christopher and I first bonded over our love of dogs. They lost their sweet Dixie just before our engagement session, and as sad as their loss made me, it made me smile to see how they'd incorporated her memory into their wedding day. How cool is this custom etching that they had done?!

Baton Rouge Birth Photographer | Aubrey at Woman's Hospital https://www.bayourosephoto.com/blog/2018/3/baton-rouge-birth-photographer-aubrey-at-womans-hospital One of the (many) reasons that I love photographing births is that each one is so unique. Each one has its own little magical love story, all its own - and no two are ever the same. I love getting to know my clients and their stories - watching them become parents, either for the first time or while adding another little one to the mix. I also adore seeing the love between mom and dad grow, too - many times people assume that birth photography is all about the baby, and that's kinda true...except that the baby is only one layer to the overall story, for me. 

 

Case in point - John and Jadah. They love each other hard, and it was evident while Jadah was laboring. Little Miss Aubrey was turned in a less than ideal way during labor, which was causing poor Mom a lot of pain. John was right there with her the whole time, along with Jadah's awesome mom - so she had the greatest of support systems when the call was made to bring mom and baby into a c-section. I absolutely adored the moments between them all in the operating room. The emotion was overwhelming, and the images created during this birth are some of my absolute favorites as a result!

 

Audrey came into the world as a very healthy little girl, and she was just perfect - surrounded by an absolute mob of loving family members, and a mom and dad who fell in love with her instantly. What a sweet, beautiful, lucky little girl you are, Aubrey Claire!

 

Happy birthday. <3

Jadah gave it ALL she had, and then some - but Motherhood Lesson #1: Sometimes you just have to do what's best for your kid and roll with it!

The hard moments are worth documenting just as much as the happy ones. I love the strength in this image, as Jadah is holding on for all she's worth while in a lot of pain. Motherhood makes the tears all worthwhile!

Jadah's mom had a pretty traumatic birth with Jadah herself - it was so hard for her to see her daughter in pain, but she was a rock!

Probably my favorite image of the whole day - it moved me to no end to see how in love with and focused on her baby Jadah was. This is the miracle of motherhood, folks - even in the midst of surgery, a mom has eyes for nothing and no one but her new family.

Baton Rouge Wedding Photography | RM at City Club of Baton Rouge https://www.bayourosephoto.com/blog/2018/3/baton-rouge-wedding-photography-rm-at-city-club-of-baton-rouge I had the great pleasure of photographing the wedding of Ryan and Madi at the City Club of Baton Rouge a while back, and holy cow - were these two *perfection*, or what? Ryan was the best kind of clown, keeping everyone laughing all day long - and Madi was elegance, and grace, and love and joy just shone from that woman all day long. It was magic, and I couldn't have been happier to be a part of their night! I love photographing in downtown  Baton Rouge - the vibe is just the right mix of historic and fun and all kinds of awesome.

 

Check out some of my favorite images of these two getting hitched!

Probably the funniest mother/son moment ever, for me. SECONDS before walking down the aisle, Ryan's mom whips out an entire can of hairspray from her clutch to touch him up. I'm not even sure how that thing FIT in there, man. And...I will neither confirm nor deny that she pulled a Mom move just after this, and used a little spit and wipe action to really set the "look"! Ryan's reaction was...fun. ;)

Baton Rouge Wedding Photography Allison and Brad at the Old Governors Mansion https://www.bayourosephoto.com/blog/2018/3/baton-rouge-wedding-photography-allison-and-brad-at-the-old-governors-mansion I'm SO excited to blog this wedding today! This couple and all of their crew are near and dear to my heart, so I can't tell you how honored and excited I was when Brad and Allison asked me to photograph their wedding.

We met by kind of a crazy happenstance. My mom was in a horrific accident a while back, and Brad was one of the docs who actually worked on her while all the great folks at Our Lady of the Lake were trying to save her life. I had no idea at the time, but we started chatting after Brad had found me online and asked me to photograph his proposal to Allison - and I was stunned to hear of the connection! And, to make things even MORE Six-Degrees-of-Kevin-Bacon, Allison's BFF and maid of honor, Tina, was my mom's nurse - the one who fought for her, kept me (relatively) calm...and oh yeah, there mayyyyy be a story in there about how I decided it was a great idea to give blood on an empty stomach, then say, hey - let's go visit mom's room...and I almost pass out on Tina. She took good care of both of us, that day. ;) I was so excited to see so many of the awesome crew who took care of all of us during such a crazy time at the reception! 

Anyway, I loved Brad and Allison from the very first second I met them - they're funny, and kind, and have just the absolute best attitude about living and enjoying life to the absolute fullest. I just *knew* their wedding was going to be amazing, and MAN, did they come through on that! Their friends and family are all just like them - wonderful, fun and amazing people with whom it was an absolute honor to spend the day with. We had crying, we had laughter, we had a surprise party crash by the Saints mascot Gumbo, at the reception...it was an absolutely perfect night. 

Thanks to all of the great vendors who made the day so great for this special crew!

Brad's mom teared up over the personalized hankie he gave her - and she definitely used it later!

Baton Rouge Wedding Photography | Allison Bridals at the Old Governor's Mansion https://www.bayourosephoto.com/blog/2018/3/baton-rouge-wedding-photography-allison-bridals-at-the-old-governors-mansion I'm so excited to finally show off this chick's bridals at the Old Governor's Mansion. Allison looked *flawless*, and we had a blast just hanging out and getting some great images on the awesome staircase (and how about that chandelier?!) The Old Governor's mansion is such a great wedding venue - I'm pumped to be shooting Allison's wedding there as well, and can't wait to show you all the awesome images from the big day!

Baton Rouge Proposal Photography | Russ and Caroline at Magpie Cafe https://www.bayourosephoto.com/blog/2018/2/baton-rouge-proposal-photography-russ-and-caroline-at-magpie-cafe There are few things I love more than being in on a surprise! So, naturally, when Russ contacted me about photographing his surprise proposal to Caroline, I was *all in*! 

We met at Magpie Cafe on Perkins Road, in Downtown Baton Rouge - where they'd had their first date. The sweet staff at the coffee shop was awesome, and reserved a table just for the two of them. Russ went down on one knee, and the rest is history! They were both over the moon excited, and it's possible that my cheeks hurt for the rest of the day, with all the grinning that I did right along with them. 

 

Congratulations, you two! <3 <3
