Olivia Grey Pritchard Photography

3915 Baronne St. Suite 4,  601-297-1793 (mobile)  504-281-4910 (studio)  oliviagreypritchard@hotmail.com

Olivia is an internationally published photographer who specializes in custom maternity, birth, newborn and baby portraiture.  She believes:

  • All mothers need maternity portraits, even if they're not having an easy pregnancy.  Your baby will thank you one day for having portraits made with her in your belly!
  • The birth process is a fascinating, literal labor of love that should be documented in tasteful imagery that expresses the intensity of each moment.
  • Newborn portraits are some of the most important photographs in your baby's first year of life.  Your baby changes daily in those first few weeks.  Make sure to have professional images of your brand-new addition taken at 5-7 days old -- you will treasure them forever.
