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

Wearing Red lips on Your Wedding Day.
So if you know anything about me or have met me only one time, you should know that my personality is far from reserved. I also do consider myself makeup obsessed. So if you ASK ME whether or not it is acceptable to wear Red Lips on your wedding day I would argue most definitely. Look how easy is it to turn a simple look into GORGEOUS by throwing on a quick swipe of color. Don't you think it pops? To show what I mean we did a quick styled shoot down town in Baton Rouge to show you just how easy it is to turn your wedding day into super glam, by simply wearing Red Lipstick! Check out some of the shots we got and let us know what YOU THINK! ...

10 Ways Photographers can Succeed at a Bridal Show
(Pictures at Bottom) Hi! This is only my second time at a bridal show. So I guess you could say things are getting pretty serious(lol if you know). On a serious note I'd say it went pretty well.  It seems you can learn ALOT  just by putting yourself out there. The first time I did a Bridal show, I crashed and burned. Not that I was unprepared, but I was rather clueless & I don't feel that my booth reflected my company well. Did I get weddings from it? Yes. Probably just from the sheer number of people that came through that event...THAT SHOW WAS MASSIVE. Yet, had I done it properly I could've gotten more. I'm just going to give you some ...

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 ...
