Northshore Photographer Guide

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 Photographer Guide for 2018. 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.

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

Jennifer Todd Photography

Hello! I am Jennifer Williams, owner and photographer of Jennifer Todd Photography. I am a newborn photographer located in Covington, Louisiana. Some might say I am addicted to babies…there may be some truth to that. I just know that newborn photography makes my heart and soul happy! I love it and truly feel blessed that I get to snuggle babies as my job! Along with photographing newborns comes maternity, children and family photography. I love making lasting relationships with my clients and getting to watch families and babies grow right in front of my lens!

As a mom of 4, I know all too well how quickly children grow and life changes! Milestones come and go in the blink of an eye. We all think we will “never forget this” yet somehow the memories become hazy over time. This makes it so important to document those sweet moments in our lives. With every session, my goal is to capture the realness of my subject. Whether it’s the flaky skin and tiny rolls of a newborn, the pouty face of a two-year-old, a six-year old’s smile that is missing some teeth or a family laughing, snuggling each other. I want my images to be a true reproduction of that time in my client’s life. I want to create images that evoke emotion; images that my client’s will look back on and smile or maybe cry or perhaps even be transported back to the very moment the image was taken. Pictures have always held a special place in my heart. From being a little girl, reminiscing through my grandparents’ old albums, to becoming a teenager discovering a love for taking pictures and now being an adult where I realize the importance of having pictures. I consider being a photographer a gift and would be honored to be entrusted with capturing the treasured moments of your life.
