What To Expect

As a family portrait photographer in the Ruston and Shreveport Louisiana areas, I strive to make your family portrait experience one to remember. There is a lot of chaos that can be involved the process of family portraits. From start to finish, CDP is with you every single step of the way. Outfit inspiration, location ideas, and much more! We can't wait to work with you!!

I truly know and understand fears you may be feeling about your littles not cooperating for portraits. Trust me, I have littles of my own. I know how they can be. I truly believe in toddler-led portrait sessions. This means we aren't forcing poses on littles. We aren't setting high expectations of them sitting and smiling perfectly. I want to capture them, and you as a family, as who you really are. Crazy, and chaotic as that may be. Your chaos is a beautiful story worth telling.
