The Greater New Orleans Photography Guide

The best New Orleans photographers for families, newborns and children.

“A good snapshot keeps a moment from running away.” -Eudora Welty

If we can collectively agree on anything related to COVID-19 it is that life is precious and our health and families are the most precious treasures we could have. Our hope is that this list of New Orleans family photographers will make it easier for New Orleans moms and dads to find a photographer for all of their family’s photography needs, whether that is maternity moments, birth photos, newborn sessions, or your annual family photo shoot for milestone marking and holiday cards. Capture the moments, mama. Life is fragile.

VCB Photography

At VCB Photography we believe that love can be felt through a photo, in the sweet, simple moments between a mother and her child, when a baby giggles at dad’s silly faces, or when a new life enters this world. All of these moments can be captured and the love of that moment preserved for all time. Essentially, We are in the business of documenting love.

New Orleans families and visitors choose Victoria to capture their most treasured moments. We specialize in natural and timeless family portraits, helping our clients truly connect as a family during the session with movement and play. VCB Photography is a go-to for French Quarter sessions, and has shot over 350 families in the French Quarter setting. Our session options include Family, Maternity, Birth, In-home Newborn Sessions, Milestones, and Events.

We utilize our knowledge of unique locations in the city and lighting to capture families in beautiful New Orleans with our documentary style. We’d love to meet you and be the ones to document your family’s love story!

“We are blown away with the newborn photos of my daughter and Amy’s ability to capture every perfect moment, little expression, and fleeting feature. Her studio is beautiful with any prop, headband, bonnet, backdrop, etc. you could imagine. She even saw my vision of incorporating a personal item of mine that made our session that much more special. Watching Amy work her magic with my daughter was such a wonderful and fun experience. She is truly talented, and you can tell she loves what she does because it shows in her beautiful work! Looking forward to future sessions with her!”

Sweet Honeybee Studios

Have you wanted to get a great family picture but the thought of finding outfits, bribing the kids to smile, and getting dad on board makes you go into a tizzy? Pictures shouldn’t be stressful! The first instructions you will get from Sweet Honeybee are “don’t bribe your kids, tell them you are going to play with Mrs Melissa and we don’t say cheese”. I promise you will feel at ease, have fun and maybe not even sweat (although its hard not to sweat under the New Orleans sun) they’ll be over so fast— this is the part the dads love most! I invite you to experience a session with Sweet Honeybee.

Melissa Jurisich, owner of Sweet Honeybee Studios, is a New Orleans area photographer specializing in family photography: maternity, birth, newborn, children, and families. The studio is conveniently located just 6 miles from the French Quarter in Old Arabi but Melissa travels anywhere in the New Orleans metro area. Sweet Honeybee loves being there from the beginning through each milestone of your growing family- from the moment your bump arrives, in the hospital for the last push capturing your sweet one entering into the world, creating a unique setup to record their new tiny toes & sweet lips just 7-10 days old, smashing their first birthday cake, or marking their transformation into a young lady/gentleman just before they lose their baby face as a teenager.

Come ENJOY making wonderful family memories!

Erika Parker Portraits

Timeless imagery… with all the feels.

“There is an astonishing and breathtaking genuine vibe portrayed in all of Erika’s photos. The images she produces provide such a beautiful tone. The photos are raw. They are full of emotion. They are genuine. They are real. And most importantly, they are us.”

I capture 100% of my portraits on film. In choosing a traditional medium, I feel it creates a deeper connection with the person and the moment. I love giggles, and deep hugs, and images that make you feel something…real. For me, a perfect portrait is one that’s an authentic reflection of you and your family.
