Welcome to the World, Baby Ezra! {Newborn} – Baton Rouge Lifestyle Photographer

The Great Flood of 2016.

It was a b*tch. Like a REAL BIG B*TCH.

We never imagined what it would do, what it would take, who it would hurt. But it did more damage than Katrina, took people’s homes and businesses, and hurt pretty much everyone in it’s path. We are all still recovering, rebuilding, and resetting our lives. My family and I were really lucky and managed to stay high and dry. But watching others around us suffer and lose so much was more than I could bear.

When I spoke with my friend Ericka (the marketing manager at the amazing Red Stick Mom’s Blog) and she told me about her sister’s traumatic birth experience, I was completely heartbroken. Though her sister was able to bring a BEAUTIFUL, HEALTHY baby boy into this world, the experience rocked her. Ericka shared her story with me and I couldn’t think of anything I’d rather do than offer to shoot the baby’s newborn photos once they were all home and resting.

Brittany, her husband Reese, and baby Ezra were all spending time at Ericka’s home for a bit after the baby was born. So I headed over there to snap some photos and give the Peralta family some beautiful memories of a beautiful baby that they brought into this world. My only hope was that the photographs could override the fear, sadness, and overwhelming stress of the birth experience. And I was thrilled to find out that Brittany and Reese simply adored the photos and felt like they finally had something “happy” to hold on to….along with baby E.

Enjoy some of my favorite photos from the day <3
