Louisiana Family Photography

let's let your personality shine

For ten years I've been meeting up with strangers in tall grass, my studio, and secluded gardens for sessions, but have rarely left without a tight hug.  After spending about an hour together making you and your little ones laugh, I can promise that your gallery will reflect how much fun we had and you'll realize how easy a session can be.

don't be nervous

I'll be the photographer holding a 'Free Hugs' sign after our session where we've become fast friends.

My approach to photography is real, personal, and comfortable - I strive to make my clients feel comfortable and confident. I always get to know my clients on a personal level. I want you to think of me more like a friend and less like a hired vendor! At the end of the day, you’ll walk away with the experience of a fun and laid-back photo session, as well as the joy of knowing you’ll have some beautiful memories with your loved one preserved for years to come.


Whether we meet at my studio or somewhere in the great outdoors, I can't wait!

What are You Looking For?

"She photographed all of our greatest milestones, such as pregnancy announcements, maternity photos, family photos, first birthday photos, as well as newborn photos for both of our daughters! She truly can do it all and has always exceeded my expectations. She will always be our go to girl and I think anyone who uses Lainey would agree!"

Lainey goes above and beyond for every single session and is always so patient with our family and not so cooperative golden retriever. 


"Truly shocked at her magic. Could not have asked for more. Professional, talented, responsive, creative. Lainey was a dream to work with! Absolutely recommend if you're in the market for a photographer."

“She was so easy to work with and her photos were unbelievable! I was expecting to love a few of them, but the whole album was phenomenal.”

- Alaina Coreil

"This girl!!! I can’t say it enough, she is a magician when it comes to photography! Always my first choice for any of our photography needs and has exceeded our expectations each time. Especially when trying to photograph a baby/toddler. I usually leave thinking there’s no way those are going to be good because I’ve just wrestled a toddler for 15 mins straight to keep still or smile, BUT she proves me wrong every time!"

"Her welcoming, patient, and sweet personality had our 1 year old smiling ear to ear the first time he had met her. Let’s just say, 5 stars doesn’t cover the quality. More like 10."
