🍭 Something Sweet 🍭 I’m so excited about my @curatedbygirls publication! I have been following CBG for years and I love their platform and how well they use it. Women from all walks of life are given the chance to share their art with the world. Inclusivity and uniqueness are definite values in the whole Curated By Girls social media platform, and I constantly take inspiration from the artists that they showcase. This shoot means a lot to me. A lot of work went into this project. Not only do I love taking the photos, I love to do the styling and location scouting. My team really made this a dream come true. Girl power is real power y’all! Here is the full set of photos, and check out the link in my bio for the publication! Photo and Styling by me.

I can’t believe May is almost over. I’m excited to be shooting two shoots in the course of two weeks! It’s been so long since I’ve been able to photograph others, and I’m truly looking forward to making new work. Here are a few more self portraits from earlier this month. ✨ 🧡 . . . . . . . . . #vintagedress #followyournola #ethereal_moods #dreamy #vintageaesthetic #1950sdress #showmeyournola #selfportraits #dreamyaesthetic #orange #louisianacreatives #1950sfashion

Happy May Day! 🌸 🌞 🌺 I think with the state of everything in the world right now that it is extremely important to spend time out in the sunshine and appreciate the beauty of spring in any way that you can. I know that my moods are so much more depressed or agitated when I’m not spending as much time in nature that I should be. I’m grateful for the warmth of the sun, the feeling of a warm breeze, and the sound of the water down by the bayou. I love the feeling of walking in the grass, the feeling of sun shining on my eyes, and the feeling of taking a deep breath of fresh air. Enjoy the beauty of spring if you can! It truly does wonders for your mood and your health.💖 Here are some photos from 2018 for @trashydiva of @tiaalexand looking stunning as usual!😍 . . . . . . . . . #mayday #happyspring #vintageinspired #vintagestyle #nolaphotographer #followyournola #beltane #seventiesstyle #showmeyournola #louisianacreatives #modelslouisiana #springhassprung #enjoythelittlethings #springtime #springinneworleans #creativeportraits #may #springishere

In a few days, it will be my four year anniversary of moving from home. It’s crazy how much someone can grow in one year- let alone four. Although everything in the world feels strange and uncertain, I take comfort in the fact that I’ve made home here and have grown into a more “me” version of myself. I have such a great support system here and so many things to be grateful for. I do know that 24 year old Shelby and 28 year old Shelby are vastly different, but somehow still the same in certain ways. Life is weird y’all, but I dig it. Here are some self portraits and bunch of quarantine selfies. I’m dying to shoot again, dm if you’d like to set up future shoots please!

A photo of @zempcaroline back in 2017 when times didn’t feel so uncertain. 🌸 🍃 Everyone-please do your part to get through this together as healthily, safely, and hopefully as quickly as possible. I’ve been sick with sinusitis for a week and am just now feeling better. Although I want to go out in the beautiful weather and do all the things-now is the time to stay home and get my shit together. I’m not able to schedule photo shoots until this all blows over, but reach out if y’all need anything! Be compassionate, selfless, and smart. Bye for now!👋🏻 . . . . . . . . . #pastelaesthetic #pinkhair #pinkaesthetics #lookslikefilm #vintageinspired #nolaphotography #girlsbygirls #girlgaze #soft #softfocus #followyournola #girlgaze #adolescentcontent #louisianacreatives #modelslouisiana #showmeyournola #prettyinpink #prettyinpink 🎀

This shoot will always be a favorite of mine. 🌸 I shot these back in a laundromat named Maloney’s in my hometown in 2012. The elderly woman who ran it back then was so sweet. This shoot was the last time I was inside Maloney’s. It has been renovated recently and all the vintage charm has been taken away from it. 😞 . . . . . . . . #vintagephotoshoot #vintagelaundry #lookslikefilm #neworleansphotographer #fiftiesstyle #laundromatphotoshoot #prettyvintage #1950sstyle #followyournola #creativeportraits #nolaphotographer #vintageinspired #fiftiesinspired

People, places, & things. Old photos from different selves and different seasons. Sometimes looking at older work is bittersweet. Do you ever look back and see different versions of yourself as you were growing up? I love the memories I’ve saved through doing photography for the past decade. 🌸 🌞 . . . . . . . . . #showmeyournola #naturelover #cemeterywandering #ethereal_moods #ethereal_softness #landscapephotography #seasons #followyournola #memories

A few more self portraits from a few weeks ago. I love taking portraits in my bedroom- it’s my cozy, safe space.

Happy Friday! @mizongarde looks bewitching in these photos✨✨ speaking of bewitching, there’s a full moon coming up on the 9th so make sure to enjoy it! 🌝 I usually do shoots that are vintage inspired and heavily influenced by the 60s/70s, but it’s always so nice to take a break here and there to do shoots that are on the witchy-er, spookier side💕😍 . . . . . . . . . #creativeportraits #cemeterywandering #ethereal_moods #witchesofinstagram #witchyvibes #cemeterylovers #cemeteryshots #followyournola #nolacemetery #nolaphotographer #witchythings #louisianacreatives #nolacreatives #portraitphotography #happyfriday #cemetery #neworleanscemeteries

Alright y’all it’s Aquarius season and my birthday is a week away. ✨ ♒️ Tonight there is a new moon, and new moons are my favorite.🌚 For me they symbolize a fresh start and a new cycle. It’s a good time to set plans and goals into motion. I have long and short term goals that I’m excited to work towards, and my birthday is always a day where I think about my overall growth as a human. (Even though I’m pretty sure I’m an 👽 )Here is one of my favorite shots from my first shoot of the decade! Doesn’t @mizongarde look amazing?! . . . . . . . . . #cemeteryphotography #cemeterywandering #aquarius #portraitphotography #witchyvibes #sunriseshoot #nolacemetery #creativeportraits #showmeyournola #followyournola #ethereal_moods #cemeterylovers #witchywoman #aquariusnewmoon #aquariusseason #naturallightphotography #louisianacreatives #newmoon #nolaphotography
