Nathan Ponder & Lacey Levine became the new Mr. & Mrs. Ponder on an absolutely beautiful March day in DeRidder Louisiana at a family home.

The day before the wedding, the area was slammed with high winds and rain. We were all on the edge of our seats about how Saturday would be and with areas around us all day suffering these storms as well, we couldn’t believe that God showed up and showed out with an amazingly gorgeous Louisiana day for us.

Lacey chose champagne, gray, blush as her wedding colors with a theme of Our Great Adventure.

There wasn’t a detail missed and everywhere you looked they were found. It was absolutely beautiful!

Here are a few of my favorites from their gorgeous day!

Thank you so much for having us to share in one of the biggest days of you life! We couldn’t feel more blessed or honored<3

Amber and Andrew were married in Shreveport, Louisiana on December 31st at St. John Berchman’s Cathedral followed by a beautiful reception at The Scottish Rite Cathedral.

The day started full of rain, but it didn’t put a damper on their day.

It was so good to see this couple so happy, in love, and enjoying their day.

Amber wore a stunning gown that sparkled with her every move under the gorgeous cathedral lights while her bridesmaids wore various styles of gold shimmer gowns to compliment her colors of red and gold.

The groom and his groomsmen looked mighty fine themselves all dressed with black tuxes.

The candlelit reception followed with delicious food and cake with plenty of partying on the dance floor.

It was definitely a day to be remembered and an excelled way to send off the 2016 year.

Congratulations Andrew and Amber. I wish you guys many many years of love and laughter<3

Here is a little peek into their special day.

I had the pleasure of spending my Saturday with these gorgeous people this past Saturday and I had such a great time.

The bride was gorgeous, the groom handsome, the weather was perfection, and the day was filled with tears of joy and laughter.

It couldn’t have gone better!

I couldn’t choose just a couple of images to share, so I figured I would share a little more than a couple here!

Congratulations Marc & Jessica!

I wish you many years of happiness and thank you so much for letting me share in your special day.

Hey guys!

I’ve been really doing some thinking lately about this crazy economy of ours and it hurts my heart that I can’t be in everyones budget. It really does.

I absolutely hate that good quality once in a lifetime images of your brand new baby are a luxury and not a necessity.

I hate that you have to settle for someone different when your heart was set on working with me, but your bank account just didn’t agree.

Trust me, if I could do this for free I totally would. Unfortunately, my bills have to be paid too. My babies need clothes and food.

Props aren’t cheap. At all. And I like to keep things fresh and updated for you all, so I spend thousands upon thousands every year purchasing new things for your little ones sessions and updating equipment and learning new things.

I have sat down and worked out all of the equations to figure out what the lowest price I could work for and cover expenses and pay bills and such would be and that’s what my prices are now. That’s also why they haven’t changed in almost 3 years.

I try to keep it simple for you. I try to fit in everyones budget, but that’s just not always an option.

With that being said, I’ve racked my brain to come up with a solution for some of you.

Obviously I can’t be free and be the solution for everyone, but I am trying to figure out ways to help out at least SOME of you!

So here it goes!

We will be offering a handful of Newborn Mini Sessions each month.

The details are as follows:

This session is for baby only. No parents or siblings are allowed.

Up to 45 minutes in studio with the use of items from our amazing prop/backdrop collection

Your choice of one color fabric beanbag drop with 3 poses of your choice (based on baby cooperation)

One prop setup of your choice (based on baby cooperation)

5 fully edited digital images for download with a full print release 

Baby will be photographed awake or asleep. 

Limited to 3 per month, no guaranteed availability

Sessions will be available to shoot the 1st or 3rd Fridays of the month at 9, 10:30, or 12 only. 

P I N I T

FABULOUS NEWBORN MINI SESSION CANDIDATES WOULD BE

-Someone who just can’t pull the minimum to book with us into their budget

-Someone who wants to have just a few images of their new baby without all of the extras

-Someone who doesn’t want family or sibling images

-Someone looking for just a few digital images only

-Someone who doesn’t feel all the sleepy poses are a necessity

-Someone who would be okay with limited availability and session time.

-Someone who wants this to be quick and simple yet have an amazing experience and quality images.

Those who would NOT be a good Newborn Mini Session candidate

-Someone who wants to include parent or siblings in the session

-Someone who loves a variety of images and would want more than 5

-Someone who loves all of the sweet sleepy poses of a traditional newborn session

-Someone who wants to guarantee their session with us prior to the birth of their baby

-Someone who wants to be more flexible with their session date and or time schedule

-Someone who would be interested in our other heirloom products such as canvas, albums, or brag books

Handsome baby Boyer barely made a peep until the end of his session. He was such a handsome little fella<3

His Daddy is a pilot for the US Air Force and his Mom also serves so of course, we had to incorporate that into our session.

Oh Emme<3

Such a little beauty and I was lucky enough to capture her not once, but twice.

I got to meet her the first time at her Fresh48 session when she was less than 24 hours old and she stole my heart with those little eyes and all of that hair.

She didn’t disappoint either when she came back for her newborn session the following week.

She decided that she wanted to stay awake and look at all of her new surroundings but we just rolled with the flow and eventually, she went to sleep and we got even more great shots.

Here are some of her pretties for you to ohhhh and ahhh over too!

  • Dee Dyess - the last photo took my breath away…oh my gosh what a beautiful family. You did it again Jaci…YOU are amazing!ReplyCancel

It’s no secret that my second favorite age to photograph next to newborns are sitters. They just have so much personality and they have grown so incredibly much since their newborn session so it’s an absolute joy to get to photograph them again at this fun age.

They’re usually full of adorable smiles and even some laughs. They let us play dress for a little while and we always get some really fun images for Mom and Dad to capture this sweet time in their life.

Miss Annabelle is one of my sweet baby plan babies so that means I got to capture her maternity session, newborn, milestone and soon, ONE YEAR!

Here are some of my favorites from her milestone session!
