NOLA Birth Photographer bio picture
  • Hello!

    Welcome to NOLA Birth Photographer! I'm Angelle - a wife, mom of two little ones, birth enthusiast, DONA trained doula, and photographer - specializing in birth photography in the greater New Orleans area. I'm honored to be invited to witness and document these birth stories! If you're looking for someone to photograph the birth of your baby, contact me for more information. I'd love to meet you, learn more about your growing family, and document this special time for you and your family!

I had the pleasure of photographing Emily and Jeff’s wedding day, nearly two years ago! It was great being able to go visit at their home a few years later and meet their new baby girl. Emily’s father cut and finished this tree slice to create a cake stand for their wedding, and now it holds the sweetest part of their lives – baby Molly!  We used several other things that were significant to them as a part of the session including baby blankets that were made years ago by Emily’s grandmother, and Molly’s cradle that was saved through a generation and refinished just for her. This is one treasured baby girl!

One morning in early July, I was able to meet up with this sweet family before they added a new baby girl! Family portraits with a two year old definitely requires some flexibility and patience, but in the end, they got some beautiful images from our brief time together! Here were a few of my favorites:

In the final weeks of Allye’s pregnancy, the baby was no longer showing noticeable growth. A slow induction began four days after her due date with breaking her water and walking to get things moving. There wasn’t much progression, but after a little bit of pitocin, Allye’s body was taking over with some strong contractions! Soon, she was able to get into the warm tub for some natural pain relief. Allye labored beautifully, with such peace and grace with her husband by her side.

Allye hadn’t planned on a water birth, but when it came time to push this baby out, climbing out of the tub didn’t sound like such a great idea! It was time!

Adalynn is one gorgeous baby, and was a sweetie pie for her session!  I love being able to see my birth families again at newborn sessions, and check in on how everything is going a week later!  My goal for newborn sessions is to document their tiny features, and your family together. When I’m editing these images, I want to keep it real so you see that baby fuzz and texture to their skin, and remember how sweet it all was!005 AdalynnNB 04 14 14 Adalynn: New Orleans Lifestyle Newborn Portraits009 AdalynnNB 04 14 14 Adalynn: New Orleans Lifestyle Newborn Portraits013 AdalynnNB 04 14 14 Adalynn: New Orleans Lifestyle Newborn Portraits015 AdalynnNB 04 14 14 Adalynn: New Orleans Lifestyle Newborn Portraits019 AdalynnNB 04 14 14 Adalynn: New Orleans Lifestyle Newborn Portraits021 AdalynnNB 04 14 14 Adalynn: New Orleans Lifestyle Newborn Portraits026 AdalynnNB 04 14 14 Adalynn: New Orleans Lifestyle Newborn Portraits027 AdalynnNB 04 14 14 Adalynn: New Orleans Lifestyle Newborn Portraits030 AdalynnNB 04 14 14 Adalynn: New Orleans Lifestyle Newborn Portraits033 AdalynnNB 04 14 14 Adalynn: New Orleans Lifestyle Newborn Portraits037 AdalynnNB 04 14 14 Adalynn: New Orleans Lifestyle Newborn Portraits038 AdalynnNB 04 14 14 Adalynn: New Orleans Lifestyle Newborn Portraits040 AdalynnNB 04 14 14 Adalynn: New Orleans Lifestyle Newborn Portraits041 AdalynnNB 04 14 14 Adalynn: New Orleans Lifestyle Newborn Portraits043 AdalynnNB 04 14 14 Adalynn: New Orleans Lifestyle Newborn Portraits045 AdalynnNB 04 14 14 Adalynn: New Orleans Lifestyle Newborn Portraits047 AdalynnNB 04 14 14 Adalynn: New Orleans Lifestyle Newborn Portraits053 AdalynnNB 04 14 14 Adalynn: New Orleans Lifestyle Newborn Portraits055 AdalynnNB 04 14 14 Adalynn: New Orleans Lifestyle Newborn Portraits057 AdalynnNB 04 14 14 Adalynn: New Orleans Lifestyle Newborn Portraits058 AdalynnNB 04 14 14 Adalynn: New Orleans Lifestyle Newborn Portraits

Seeing how Courtney and Brett cared for each other during the birth of their baby was simply beautiful. This little one was hoped and prayed for over quite some time, and this was THE day! They decided to let the anticipation build, and find out the baby’s sex on his or her birthday (which always makes for a more emotional birth)! Family and friends were in and out of the delivery room during the day, making things even more exciting. This ended up being a really smooth induction, and it wasn’t long at all before it was time to meet baby!
