I had the best time taking Vanessa & Gemma’s maternity photos in the French Quarter. Vanessa first contacted me about a month or two beforehand when her and Gemma were planning on coming back to New Orleans, where they are both originally from, to attend their baby shower and visit with family members. It just so happen to be smack dab in the middle of (dun dun dunnnn) Mardi Gras! We were suppose to take their photos on a Thursday, but the weather of course took a turn for the worse, so we decided Sunday was our best bet.
I made sure that we had a good plan in place, being that it was Mardi Gras and we were just a few days away from Fat Tuesday. With that being said we planned for a super early morning session in the French Quarter – i’m talkin’ 7:30am in the morning. And it was absolute PERFECTION. We basically had the whole French Quarter to ourselves, which is unheard of and we were able to walk around and take these amazing photos with very little photo-bombing. I’d say we were WINNING.
Gemma & Vanessa will be some amazing and stylish momma’s! I can tell just with the way they interacted with one another, laughed with each other and held each other with so much love & care, that their sweet baby will have an over abundance of lovin’. I know you will enjoy these photos just as much as I do looking back at them while I create this post <3
Speaking of Mardi Gras, what was your favorite parade this year?!
