Our 2 year Anniversary Picture Session!

Quick story.

It’s my husband and I’s anniversary today!

2 years ago, I could not have imagined how my world would so dramatically change & expand when Mr. Barnett waltz into my life and swept me off my cajun toes.

He is my calm in the storm. My business partner (the details side of Vivid Dream Wedding Photography). My warrior. God brought him into my life to open my heart, light up my world, & broaden my horizons. Josh has done that & so much more.

Knowing Josh, is the only reason I ever began photography + really deciding to make life style photography/wedding photography a career and life passion. It all started when my new mother in law so sweetly put her heart into planning our marvelous engagement party, just a few weeks before our wedding. At the end of the night my in laws blessed us with a camera. BUT it was my first real camera and I can’t recall why, but I began crying in front of everyone. I was so thrilled, and overwhelmed with all the blessings reigning in my life that month. God had answered every detail of my hearts desires, even down to the simplest thing of being able to take photos on a decent camera. The camera was just the icing on the cake. At the time, just the opportunity to capture moments with the new love of my life seemed like everything I could have ever hoped for. So I wept. No shame, just pure joy and an over-flow of all the emotions I couldn’t contain. Today, again, I am sentimental about how our paths crossed, what Josh + his family means to me, & how love and a new camera could/would change my world. I am thankful, I am hopeful, and the future is brimming with opportunity.

So to document the love along the way, we asked a local photographer Kristen Soileau Portraits to take our pictures for this celebration of 2 wonderful years together! Obviously it’s important to me to document everything, lol. I’ve missed out before by NOT documenting, and I refuse to let it ever happen again. It is so important to capture the years together, so you can always look back & see the life + love experienced. You never know what life holds. Get documented & photographed while you can, before it’s too late and your wishing that you had.

Wishing you all to find a love that will transform your world, and a passion that will carry through the Hard times.

Love you all,

Xox0

When They Don’t Choose You.
  I woke up and this was on my mind and heart today. I want to talk about when a client, OR a person doesn’t choose you. I thought, wow, this isn't just for a wedding photographer like myself, but for everyone! Let’s face it, at some point everyone will face rejection whether in business, relationships, or life. I can just imagine a man sitting at the table with his face in his hands, as his wife pushes divorce papers in front of him. I can see the girl who didn’t get picked for the cheerleading team. I see a new salesman who can’t seem to meet his quota at the car dealership, and he feels like a failure. Mr. Wall street man gets hand ...

The Importance of Photographing a Proposal
Men, let’s be honest. You are never quite sure what it is that your woman wants even though you try time and time again. It's okay though it's not like you can read her mind....or can you? I'm about to let you in on a little secret. In a survey, over 1,000 women were asked about how important it was to them that the moment of proposal was captured through photo or video. Results showed that photos or videos of the proposal ranked higher than picking out the perfect ring. So get ahead of the game and give her what she really wants! One of the greatest memories you have with your significant other is the day that you propose. It’s the day that ...

Frequently Ask Questions for Weddings
Here are some typical questions I get asked, take a look and see if this covers some of your inquiries! WHAT PRIMARY PHOTOGRAPHIC STYLE DO YOU IDENTIFY WITH? Making photos at your wedding requires me to be excellent at several styles of wedding photography. I mainly consider myself a lifestyle editorial photographer. It’s quite the mash up really. Which means, most of my photos are very much candid and express a story true to your personality, while maintaining a few classic poses that might resemble magazine work.  I love making lifestyle photos appear somewhat dramatic. I create these looks in Lightroom and Photoshop. I HATE POSING F ...
