new orleans french quarter | travel photography

A couple of weeks ago, we went to New Orleans (for the first time!) to shoot a wedding during Jazz Fest.  I just love the whole vibe of New Orleans, especially the French Quarter.  Everything there feels so nostalgic to me… maybe because it reminds me of being at Disneyland.  They have the best FOOD there and is always so lively with local musicians playing.

It was really warm and humid… okay, more like hot and humid…. while I was tempted to sit in the shade and not lug around a heavy camera, I forced myself to go on a photo walk during my last afternoon there because I knew I would regret not documenting my time there.  I think about my past vacations and the only thing that makes me relive my memories are my photos.  While taking these, I honestly thought to myself, “It’s not like I’m going to forget this…”  but now looking at these a couple weeks later, I’m so glad I took pictures.  Unlike most material items, the value of photographs (memories) will always appreciate.

Yup, we tried gator meat!  It’s actually very good!

The French Market was one of our favorite destinations for food and just to walk around.

And what I’m REALLY missing right now, Cafe Du Monde!

Random fact:  I always thought the orange cans of Cafe Du Monde coffee was imported from France… or Vietnam.  Every Vietnamese household has them.

You’re right; they do appreciate! We take our students to the South every year. It’s been maybe 3-4 years since I’ve been, but got to relive it through your lovely photos right now! Agh…so miss du monde and the live music.

Photojournalism is really a caring profession. Without the proper effort it isn’t actually possible to acquire your goal in this area. It is directly connected with third eye, this is why it is simply not an easy job.Photojournalism is really a caring profession.

boudoir photography

a playful boudoir

“Less is More” is a motto I live by, but it’s especially true when it comes to boudoir.  You don’t need elaborate lingerie or a fancy location to have a great session.  I actually prefer a more minimally decorated room… keeps the focus on my subject.  For me, just give me a room with beautiful light and I’m like a kid in a candy store.  Jonathan always jokes because whenever I visit any of my friends homes, I naturally gravitate to the room with the best light.  And my first compliment is usually, “Your house has such pretty light!”  Light inspires me.  I love how these photos are simple and real.
