No one can deny the value of pictures. They are the first things we grab when we evacuate and we might even find ourselves showing them to strangers we’ve just met. Having some nice pictures of your family is something you’ll never regret spending money on. So without further ado, here is the Northshore Parent Photography Guide for 2017. Participants must pay a fee to participate, but choose who we invite, so you know that you’re getting a good photographer no matter who you choose.

Ainsley Sherrie and The Art of Baby

Clients have the choice to come to her natural light newborn studio. located in Historic Downtown Covington’s Art District, or to have an in-home lifestyle session.

“Ainsley was highly recommended to me, by one of my good friends, for my second baby. She couldn’t say enough great things about her session with The Art of Baby, so I booked. And am so glad I did. Our session was wonderful. She was so patient and kind with my boys. She was organized and moved from one set to another making sure she captured the images I requested as well as the ones she knew I would love. When I left her studio that day I was impressed, but when I came back for my presentation, I was blown away. Every single one of her images were beautiful and innovative. As I watched the presentation, I kept thinking, how will I choose? But, there was no opportunity to get overwhelmed, because she had suggestions and unique ideas to achieve everything I wanted within my budget. She made it so easy. So, when we found out we were having a third (my precious baby girl), there was no question who I trusted more with my new baby’s moments than Ainsley.” ~Robin G Frazier


Double Takes Photography

I am a photographer that specializes in Senior sessions, Tween sessions, Mini Sessions, and family sessions. I am also a mom to fraternal twin tween girls, and the wife to the most amazing man ever. I am a lady who was lucky enough to find her passion in life. I love life and want to live each day to the fullest and to have those memories in print. I have always had a love for photography, and was always the girl with the camera. I graduated from the University of Southern Mississippi with a degree in Deaf Education, and taught deaf kiddos before I had my children. I then became a stay at home mom to the most amazing twin girls, and the madness began with the photo taking of every second of their life. I had friends ask me to start taking their kiddos pictures, and slowly it went from a hobby to a full time job. It has been an amazing crazy ride, and I can say I am one of the VERY lucky ones…I get to have a job that I truly love and enjoy! This passion of mine has turned into a full time job and I would say I am one of the luckiest ladies ever!

Erin Cefalu Troxclair Photography LLC.

Hi! My name is Erin Troxclair. I am a natural and studio light photographer. My style is quite simply to document the world around me and draw viewers into “a special moment in time.” I love to capture details which keep my clients in the present, yet helps them to recreate memories of the past. I strive to have my photographs become a reflection of happy times. I especially enjoy “snapping” candid moments in a natural environment. My love of outdoor sessions allow me to capture mood, light, and composition. My inspiration comes from special moments we sometimes lose to memory. I hope to unlock those memories through my lens.

“Erin is a super talented professional! My husband and I won a session with her in a charity auction, but needed to use it before we traveled home to California and we had a very limited schedule. Erin worked us in and wow-we were so impressed. My 18 month old daughter was hesitant at first, but with Erin’s expert guidance, was soon hamming it up for the camera. We were delighted again when we saw the results. The photos were simply gorgeous! Erin’s keen eye, ability to connect with children and her professionalism are top notch. We hope to get a session with her next time we are in town.” -Kristina Gentleman

  “No wonder this lady has all 5 star reviews! Just had my maternity session with Linda and I couldn’t be more excited about it! In my experience, taking professional photos can be quite stressful…from picking out your outfit to choosing the perfect location, and that’s all before you throw a toddler into the mix! What made this experience stand out for me, though, was the level of communication Linda had with me throughout the entire process. She was always available to answer any question I had and helped me feel prepared for the day. During the session, her personality and professionalism made ALL the difference. She was excellent with my toddler…so patient and kind with him and made us all feel at ease. I already know the photos are going to look gorgeous because her portfolio speaks for itself. I’m just so grateful that I did my research when choosing a photographer this time, because it made all the difference. I promise y’all she’s worth every penny (and more)!!! Thanks so much Linda and can’t wait to do our newborn session together!”   –Susan F
