Photos with Grandma With The Robinson Madere Siblings https://www.brookenguyenphoto.com/blog/2023/10/photos-with-grandma-with-the-robinson-madere-siblings A couple of months ago, Candice reached out to me to purchase a gift certificate for her mom. Her and her brother, Cody, wanted to surprise their mother with a grandkids + grandma photoshoot. I thought this was such a cute idea! The best present ever. We talked over some ideas, but mostly it was very casual. With baseball practices, tournaments, and school in the way, it felt nearly impossible to schedule. Fast forward 4 months later, we finally got back into the swing of things and jotted down a date. It was so much fun and the pictures turned out so sweet. I am already planning my own photo shoots of my child with his grandparents! 

Then I started thinking, if I want to do this so bad for myself, I bet others would love the opportunity as well. So I have decided to do Grandparents Day mini sessions!

I'm thinking on what I should do and I hope to have all the plans and dates figured out soon. I really want to capture the sentimental or just plain fun so we can truly capture real, genuine moments. 

 It was such a great afternoon well spent with the Madere / Robinson siblings with their grandmother, Sue. Looking forward to more like this!

Jireh - Newborn Session 2023 - Demi & John https://www.brookenguyenphoto.com/blog/2023/9/jireh---newborn-session-2023---demi-john Hi, I'm Jireh! We were suppose to photograph right after he was born but due to his milk allergy, we had to postpone it to a later date. But it's ok! Another baby close to making the ONE MONTH mark but we made it work out! Babies closer to the 1 month mark doesn't quite like to be swaddled. They tend to be more alert; super nosey if you ask me! (Haha, kidding!) He is going to be a chunky one! He loves to E A T! Congratulations John + Demi!

Lucas - Newborn Session 2023 - Mai & Jimmy https://www.brookenguyenphoto.com/blog/2023/9/lucas---newborn-session-2023 Welcome to the world, Lucas! I normally like to photograph within the 5-10 days range since babies are still flexible out of the womb, but mama Mai decided to book 4 weeks in! Lucas is almost a month old! We had our moments of trying to get him to sleep, but I absolutely have no regrets with these wide eyes photos! Isn't he cute?! Congratulations Mai + Jimmy!

Priscilla + Olivia | Mommy & Me https://www.brookenguyenphoto.com/blog/2022/7/priscilla-olivia-mommy-me What a precious moment for mommy and daughter. This mommy contacted me a few weeks ago for a session with her and her daughter. She wanted to get photos of them together before baby brother arrives in January. So very sweet! With a baby on the way, it's hard to forget the fact that your first baby will no longer be an only child anymore. It can be quite emotional for mothers. While families evolve over time, the love stays constant.

𝐄𝐱𝐩𝐞𝐜𝐭𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐚 𝐛𝐚𝐛𝐲 𝟐𝟎𝟐𝟏 𝐨𝐫 𝟐𝟎𝟐𝟐? 𝐘𝐨𝐮’𝐥𝐥 𝐰𝐚𝐧𝐭 𝐭𝐨 𝐫𝐞𝐚𝐝 𝐛𝐞𝐥𝐨𝐰!

 

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

I have been getting lost of inquiries for maternity/newborn sessions for those mom’s expecting late 2021 and early 2022. Most start off their message with “I am very early still and haven’t announced yet but wanted to reach out to you because I know you book up fast”. 

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Yes Yes Yes! 

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

I always tell my clients and anyone that asks, it is best to get secured in before I reach my capacity for that specific month. I book 5 newborns per month. I also leave open spaces in my agenda to keep it flexible for when baby decides to make their arrival earthbound. (For clients living an hour or two hours away, we actually have to SET a date a few days after your expecting due date so we can plan our travel and stay.)

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

So if you are expecting and are in your first trimester, start looking around to find the newborn photography that is your best fit and get secured in. We photographers find JOY in capturing moments for your family that it kills us when we have to say “fully booked” to a family because they waited too long to secure a session.

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

If you are expecting and still unsure if to book with me because it’s too early, I’m always here to chat…just reach out and we can talk about taking the next step. 

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

It’s my honor to capture this stage (one of the best stages) in your family’s life.

Nikki + Jason Family Portraits https://www.brookenguyenphoto.com/blog/2021/6/nikki-jason-family-portraits I just adore this family! This is the 2nd time I have photographed their family and each time was so much fun! The 1st time I photograph them was when we were in the crazy pandemic. I went to their house to photographed porch minis when Baby Grey was 6 months old... and fast forward, he is a O N E year old! Every time I’m with them it’s just the most fun family photo session. They are so relaxed and you can feel how close and fun they are! I love working with them. Grey is so easy... full of energy and always giving me LOTS of smiles!

Welcome Baby Hudson https://www.brookenguyenphoto.com/blog/2021/5/welcome-baby-hudson NEWBORN PHOTOGRAPHY

My newborn sessions focus on the family interaction and connection in your family when you bring your baby home. My sessions are in your home, relaxed, time efficient, and they result in a gallery full of beautiful moments captured that tell the story of this time. I practice what I call natural "Baby Led Posing." This means that I don't ever put a baby in a flower pot. :) I think babies are beautiful as they are. The natural unfolding of a newborn's limbs when the stretch, the way they curl up when placed on their belly for a moment, the way they look when cozily swaddled, all of that is so simple and beautiful to me. This is how I remember my babies, and that is how I photograph them.

YOUR NEWBORN SESSION EXPERIENCE

Lifestyle newborn sessions take place in the comfort of your home and tell the story of your family in a natural and relaxed way. Your session will document the beauty and connection of the immediate family in this incredibly sweet time of life. Newborn sessions feature the newborn and his or her immediate family and usually last around two hours.

SIMPLE SESSION PRICING

I want you to have your images, simple. They will be full resolution and you can choose to print through my lab, or at any lab of your choosing. You have a choice between my lifestyle newborn, my full newborn package, or a package of sessions to include maternity and milestone sessions like 6 months and 1 year photos + cake smash. My style of photography results in a collection of photos that tells your story at this moment, and speaks to your family’s unique beauty and connection.

Welcome Baby Emmett https://www.brookenguyenphoto.com/blog/2021/2/welcome-baby-emmett Welcoming a newborn into your family is a beautiful, emotional time. As a newborn and family photographer, I love when I have the opportunity to document these early days as everyone in the family gets to know its newest member. That’s why it was such a real pleasure to meet up with Linh and Austin to welcome baby Emmett with a newborn lifestyle photography session in their home.

Part of why I love in-home newborn sessions is that everyone can be more relaxed and comfortable. Plus, I get a chance to see the beautiful nurseries! I loved the "Wild One" theme for this little babe. It super cute!

Linh and Austin, thank you for inviting me into your home to document these precious moments with your family. I am so happy I got to meet your precious Emmett.

Bao + Cristian "MARRIED!" https://www.brookenguyenphoto.com/blog/2021/1/bao-cristian-married  

Married December 5 2020

Bridal Prep: Stella Plantation

Ceremony: Stella Plantation @ Lazy Tree

Reception: Stella Plantation

DJ: Trill Skills

Photographer: Brooke Nguyen Photography

Photobooth: Envog Photobooth

Coordinator: Shelby @ Stella Plantation

Florist: Silk Interiors

Bakery: The Pie Lady Slidell

Hair: Kelle Burkholder @ Somers Salon

Makeup: Cristian Barrios

Bridal Boutique: Pearl's Place

Tux: Men's Warehouse

The fated encounter starts with a phone call to an establishment we all know and love called, Moon Wok. Which is located on the corner of Dauphine & St. Ann inside a little but well known area called the French Quarter. While picking up a meal that would change her life, Cristian Barrios noticed the handsome smile and generous mannerism of the gentleman behind the counter. That man's name is ThaiBao Vu. After leaving the establishment, Cristian couldn't get ThaiBao's smile out of her mind. She decided to call the restaurant. When she did, she asked to speak to the fellow who just rang her up. Doing something completely out of the ordinary for her; Cristian said, "Get a pen and paper ready. Write this down." She then proceeded to give him her name and number. Ending the conversation with an awkward, "You don't have too call or text, but it would be great. K bye." Later that night, ThaiBao did indeed message her and their courtship began. Spending around 4 years growing and learning from each other, ThaiBao proposed around June of 2019. A mere 5 years later on the 5th of December 2020, the two will be wed.

Phi & MyLinh Porch Minis https://www.brookenguyenphoto.com/blog/2020/7/phi-mylinh-porch-minis When I was planning my mini sessions this year I had many ideas because I have a little one of my own, and mini sessions are super short and hassle free for both parents and child. This past May, I started to offer "porch mini session" because of what's been going on and I am still offering them for everyone. You’re probably thinking ‘our yard looks terrible’, ‘we don’t have a porch, it’s more of a stoop’, ‘I’ll need to landscape’.   No.  No you absolutely do not need to do that.  Over the past few years I’ve found that most people are more comfortable being photographed in the comfort of their own homes, whether we are on their couch or in the yard.  Dads and children especially.  So when everyone is comfortable and happy, the only thing that anyone will focus on are the laughs and emotion during that time. I got this. Your landscape don't need to be pretty, your yard don't need to look perfect. Let me find the perfect areas around your house while I capture the moment. You just sit back and have a fun time with your people. So let's get cozy and let me come to YOU! 

 

INTRODUCING... The Phams! They were wearing light tones, so I photographed them by their neighbors house! Hehe

Tinh and Hieuy Family https://www.brookenguyenphoto.com/blog/2020/5/tinh-and-hieuy-family What a great session this was. We had such an excellent time with the Nguyen family, shooting their family portraits! We took them down to our favorite City Park spot, with the scenic bridge and the tree view in the background. The light was beautiful! We adore those sister photos, daddy and son, mommy and her daughters, and uncle and nephew photos! They obviously have so much love for each other.

We love getting these lifestyle photography shots, where we capture the natural interaction between the individual family members! There are smiles and fun time we have as well. The Nguyens were natural at it all. How sweet is this family?

You have my admiration for how you stayed true to your goals and your values. I wish you guys still had the chance to go to prom and photos with your friends before heading to prom. There are moments that they won't get back like getting their yearbooks signed by classmates and favorite teachers, and participating in the senior prank. Ken and Julia, good luck to the both of you as you two take another big step!

Abby was so ready for her big sister duties! She is super caring, loving, and always kissing her little brother. I had such a great time capturing memories for them. Normally, babies sleep when its peace and quiet, but when Noah came to visit me, his dad said "No, we can talk and he will still sleep." BOYYYY! He slept throughout his entire session! Little one is a sleeper! This 5 pound baby looks like a 10 pound baby in photos, but I promise he is small. :)

Arden's 7 Months Photoshoot Thy Gui https://www.brookenguyenphoto.com/blog/2020/4/ardens-7-months-photoshoot-thy-gui I photographed Arden's mom and dad on their wedding day and now I get to photograph Miss Arden! I have been following her mommy on social media, so I get to see this little babe all the time. She just gets cuter and cuter... so much cuter in person!!!! Arden, you're giving me baby fever here hahah! I had such a blast documenting Arden and her parents. And the park served as the perfect backdrop for this session. Scroll down to see some of my favorite photos from this session! It was super hard to pick my favorites. She is so happy! When I was editing this session, it took awhile to edit all her drools haha! She took this session like a champ! Didn't let any teething mess up her family photos! 

As of today, I will begin to start booking and photographing again. In the meantime, I am ONLY doing outdoor sessions for May. With some restrictions and guidelines, all payments are to be made electronically; no cash or checks accepted. We must remain a distance. 

and last but not least... haha <3 this photo made me laugh!

The Sistrunk's Family | Porch Minis https://www.brookenguyenphoto.com/blog/2020/4/the-sistrunks-family-porch-minis Every year, we see different photography trends arise. This year, we're seeing something new: portrait sessions of families posing in front of their homes, smiling at the safely distanced photographer. But, is this a wise move of documenting social history or a risk that is not worth taking? Quarantining with your family isn't so bad. Let me capture these memories for you! Sneak peek of the Sistrunk's Family!

Hong Trieu Family Porch Minis https://www.brookenguyenphoto.com/blog/2020/4/hong-trieu-family-porch-minis This is certainly a crazy time in our lives, and one we won’t forget. I am offering Porch Minis, where we come and capture your family in front of your home. During a 15 minute photo session, where we shoot from your driveway, sidewalk, or our vehicle, we capture your family in their raw element. Take the time to be funny and show personality, or make light of this quarantine situation by including some hard to come by items, or simply dress your best ( because haven’t we all been needing an excuse to dress up?). Here are some photographs taken a few days ago with Hong's family!

Melinda & Grace Mommy and Me https://www.brookenguyenphoto.com/blog/2020/3/melinda-grace Motherhood is such a wonderful job and gift. Being a mommy is the best thing many of us will get to do. We love these little beings with all of our hearts and souls and it deserves to be documented. I have had the desire to capture this love in a pure and simple way. As moms we are typically the ones HOLDING the camera, therefore we are rarely IN photos. But let me tell you, your kids will appreciate you stepping out of your comfort zone to capture your connection at this age. It’s not always glamorous, it’s exhausting physically and mentally, but it is the best work we will ever do. Here are some favorites from last week with Melinda and Grace.  My favorite part is that you can really see the love, bond, and affection. There is not a lot of looking and smiling at the camera and that is beautiful! I am happy to do these anytime for you. The make a great gift (Mother’s Day is coming up, so start dropping hints!) These photos are taken in the early morning or evening time.

Taylor & Craig Maternity Portraits https://www.brookenguyenphoto.com/blog/2020/3/taylor-craig-maternity-portraits City Park located in New Orleans is the perfect backdrop for a beautiful maternity session. The giant oak trees, the lights, the sounds, the atmosphere. It proves to be full of life, so what better way to capture the moments of “almost” new life. Taylor and I went to high school together. I was delighted to capture her maternity session whens she reached out to me. I am truly blessed and grateful to be able to create these memories her and Craig. They were super fun and laid  back. Even though its Spring, it felt like summer x10000! Congratulations T & C! Can't wait to see all the gorgeous photos of baby E! Thank you again for allowing me to be apart of this special moment in your lives!

Sophie's 1st Birthday - The Rahman Family https://www.brookenguyenphoto.com/blog/2020/3/sophies-1st-birthday---the-rahman-family From newborn to first year, to documenting their family portraits, I've photographed quite a few sessions for them already, and I love watching Liam and Sophie grow! I really love watching this young guy grow up, especially now that I have my own little boy of my own. He was so fun to photograph–full of spunk, mischief, and not really quite certain that he wanted to be playing during a family photography session! Luckily the realization that he absolutely did not want to be photographed didn’t set in until after we learned that - "ROARRRR" makes him giggle. Running around, throwing leaves, and just being a boy…I love it all. And his little sister, timid, don't know what the heck his brother is doing, just smiling through it all. I just love her outfit! Come check out some of my favorites from their session!

Cindy Paul Tate Family Portraits https://www.brookenguyenphoto.com/blog/2020/3/cindy-paul-tate-family-portraits  

A few favorites from yesterday's session with Paul, Cindy, and their son, Tate.

He is such a little cutie! I must say, these three were so much fun to work with. Just reminds myself why I love what I do. Photography for me is more than just clicking a button, it is capturing life's most important moments. The smile of a husband looking into his wife's eyes and remembering all the reasons they fell in love. The smile of a mother or father when they look at their child and cannot quite imagine how they became so blessed to call that sweet child their own. 

Take a look at some of my favorites and be sure to leave some love. The Vo's were awesome!

Tina and Harry Maternity Session In NOLA https://www.brookenguyenphoto.com/blog/2020/3/tina-le-maternity-session-in-nola From San Diego California to New Orleans Louisiana! Tina and Harry wanted to scratch off their bucket list by visiting New Orleans to experience their first Mardi Gras parades. They were searching for a photographer too to document their 2nd pregnancy! I'm glad we got to connect and was able to capture this special time for her and her growing family! It was soooo much fun! We went to the French Quarter bright and early in the morning then drove to City Park to finish off our session! Tina also dressed up as Snow White and I thought that was the cutest idea ever! Like, how often do you have clients that think of these cute ideas? She had her attire and everything to the T. Then, we thought, OHHHHH Story Land had a perfect place for these type of photos! It was such an adventure that day, I really hope Tina and her hubby enjoyed their experience as much as I enjoyed photographing them!

NORI & BENJI ADVENTURES https://www.brookenguyenphoto.com/blog/2020/2/nori-benji-adventures How often do you see siblings get along with each other? Not too too often, but boy these two are just so attached and lovable to one another. No, I'm not saying that to be nice. I witness how sweet they are to one another and it's the cutest thing! These two were sharing, giving hugs, and watching over each other. I can't wait to capture them AGAIN!

Thao & Trung Newborn Session https://www.brookenguyenphoto.com/blog/2019/8/thao-trung-newborn-session Lifestyle newborn sessions have recently been added to our list of services for clients. So many of my families really love the idea of being in their own home, surrounded with their own things they love for their newborn sessions. Lifestyle or in-home sessions are great for families that have older siblings, especially toddlers, that might feel more comfortable in their own home rather than in a long 3-hr posed newborn session. At home, they can share their toys, read to their new sibling, and take a break to play when they are overstimulated with pictures. Families are also loving being able to include their pets in the session as well. After all, they are part of the family too!

We started offering in-home newborn sessions to clients that reside within New Orleans and surrounding areas.  Would you be interested in having an in- home session, we’d love to help you plan that session. It isn’t just for newborns either. Older kiddos love helping in the kitchen or having pillow fights at home too. There are so many fun ways to capture your family in your perfect place.

Haley Tran's Maternity Botantical Garden City Park https://www.brookenguyenphoto.com/blog/2019/2/haley-trans-maternity-botantical-garden-city-park Haley's maternity session was taken at Botantical Garden in New Orleans City Park. Haley was an absolute champ modeling in this New Orleans weather. You would think that in February the weather would be cool. New Orleans weather I tell you... it's unpredictable. In Louisiana, we learn to just roll with what the weather throws our way! I seriously had a blast with her! Haley seemed so comfortable and at ease in her role as soon to be mommy. She wears pregnancy so beautifully! Just look at her - isn't she stunning? She is definitely glowing for sure!

They are expecting a baby girl in the next few months! Mom was definitely glowing. Bright and early at 8:00 am, the sun was shining so bright, but these three was a great sport! They expressed their excitement and love as they soon welcome their baby girl into the world. I  am so trilled that I was able to capture this moment for both mom and dad, and their baby boy!

The Vu's Family Session https://www.brookenguyenphoto.com/blog/2018/4/the-vus-family-session The Vu's Family! The completed FOUR! John and Kate have supported me from the beginning. My first 48-hour hospital session and my very first newborn session. Then came along three years later, they added another addition to the family. As the past few years gone by, I've noticed lots of change through my photography. Everything takes time, everything is a process. It's been a long journey with the Vu's and I'm sure it isn't over! There are so many more memories to capture with these two little ones! Congratulations John and Kate! Thank you for your support throughout the years!

These photo was taken in September of last year. A few weeks before Kate - POPPED! John and Kate found out that they were expecting a little baby boy! Avery was two years old. Can't you tell she was SUPER excited about the baby? She is a great sister!

 

Hospital session with the Vu's! Happy birthday, Zachary!

Fast forward 6 months after, Avery turned 3 and Zachary made 6 months old! Happy 1/2 birthday Zachary and Happy 3rd birthday Avery! Yesterday, April 8, 2018 was a PERFECT day for a family session. It was an overcast day and a little chilly!

Reid & Hunter | Newborn https://www.brookenguyenphoto.com/blog/2018/3/reid-hunter-newborn "R E I D & H U N T E R"

 

When you're expecting twins that's .... That's TWICE as exciting! Adjusting to life with one baby is a lot... I cannot imagine DOUBLING that! A family of THREE, to a family of FIVEEEE! 

I love to photograph twin newborn sessions. It is so precious to me to see how attached to each other these tiny people already are. It really is quite amazing. These two little boys were no different. They were calmest when near each other and made a fuss when we separated them. Something else I thought was also quite fascinating was how different their little personalities were already. Congratulations to the Tran's family as they welcome twins - Reid and Hunter!

She is just as DARLING, SWEET, AND ALL-SMILES for her birthday portraits just like we last seen her a few weeks before Christmas. Oh! Let's talk about sweets!

A little behind their love story from Thy “Good thing for messaging apps that allowed us to text internationally or how else would Gui put his mack on me all the way from China? When he returned from his trip, he says I was the first person he wanted to see and I showed up at the old Baskin Robbins in the middle of the night, all beaten (or "natural" as he says), showing off all of my chigger scars I got in the mountains of southern Mexico. I don't know how long we talked for but we made that one hot cup of tea last til it was cold. By the time I left for Vietnam, we were use to spending half of our time apart and the better half finding excuses to text our good mornings/goodnights or just to meet up over coffee because I "refused to go on dates."
 I count my blessings everyday - having us meet, being and now staying a part of one another's lives... I count our friendship & marriage being one of my favorites of all.”

Dudley's 1st Birthday + The Giang's Family Session https://www.brookenguyenphoto.com/blog/2018/2/dudleys-1st-birthday-the-giang-s-family-session Meet the Morlier and Giang family!  We tell no lie that every smile in every photo is completely genuine.  The very first time I photographed Baby Dudley, it was H-A-R-D! It was hard because the very first time meeting Dudley, he was super shy and only wanted his stuffed animal and snacks.  Little did I know, the second time around, he was all smile! (Because we had the grandparents and made sure we brought out his stuff animals and toys!) Haha. When Mama Morlier asked me if I can squeeze in a session after Chinese New Years, I thought... why not? This would be fun!  Exploring the area around Jackson Square and Saint Louis Cathedral for a more urban feel was also a nice treat! Carnival season, Chinese New Years, and lots of love between this family.. Here is a teaser for you all!

Newborn Session with Jameson Bui https://www.brookenguyenphoto.com/blog/2018/2/newborn-session-with-jameson-bui  

Congratulations to Kimmy and Tinh on the new addition! In-home sessions are definitely a favorite of mine and I always feel so honored when clients invite me into their home to document the new addition to their family! It's so special to document a milestone that is exciting for everyone! I also included a few of my favorite shots from their maternity session back in December 2017. This sweet family, The Bui's, were such a dream to photograph and I hope they will cherish these memories for years to come!

Tyler and Brittany - ENGAGED! https://www.brookenguyenphoto.com/blog/2018/2/tyler-and-brittany---engaged Congratulations to Tyler and Brittany on their engagement! They are the sweetest couple. Both Tyler and Brittany came all the way from New York. It was their first time in New Orleans, Louisiana. I photographed the surprise proposal at Race and Religious. Here are my favorites from their session. We did a mini engagement shoot after the surprise proposal.

 

Tyler and Brittany met 10 YEARSSSS AGO! They met during an Italy trip during their Sophomore year of high school. (Can you believe it? 10 years ago? Whoa!) 

Brittany said:

"On the last day of the trip, Tyler started throwing pebbles at me on a beach in Sicily. We talked the whole 7-hour plane ride on the way back to New York and began dating a few months later..." Cute right? Hehehe!
