Teena Whitmore Portraits

I'm a New Orleans Family and Kid photographer specializing in modern, vibrant and fun photography for families. From babies to kids to teens, I know how to help you all look like your best selves.

My outdoor family portraits are stress free, fun, and easy. I will help you with your wardrobe for your photo session, help you choose a location, and take care of all the planning for you. I have many initially unexcited dads who thank me afterwards for the session being as great as it was.

When I'm posing families, they'll look candid, never stiff. I do that by making a fool of myself behind the camera. I will pose you, then ask stupid questions that make you and your kids laugh. I was a pre-school teacher before I became a photographer, so I know all about how to manage over-exuberant kids or bring a shy child out of their bubble. You'll feel at ease and look natural in front of the camera, right from the pages of a catalog for your images!

Fairies or families, I've got you covered

Kids and Family Photo Sessions

We will chat either in person or by phone to determine what you want the session to look like. Don't worry if you aren't sure - many of my clients aren't! I have lots of ideas to help you along the way.
We'll also go over the artwork options. How are you going to display your gorgeous photos? You can browse through our wall art and heirloom album samples. You will instantly see why clients book us - and start imaging your own family as art.

Don't stress about this part - we've planned and prepared everything for this day! Just sit back and enjoy yourself. Whether you are watching or participating, this is fun. We have many years of experience working with all types of children and personalities, including special needs. Whether your child is shy or rambunctious, we follow their lead. Giggles, laughter, and smiles are typical. Most often, your child will be talking about this experience for weeks afterward. Get ready to hear about Flirty the Unicorn for even longer.

Book your portrait session


This is everyone's favorite part! This is the most exciting and emotional part of your portrait experience. You'll come back to the studio to see your final set of images for the very first time. We'll show you a custom slideshow of your images (families love this best). Don't worry if the tears well up, we provide the tissues, too.
After the slideshow, we'll go through each image more closely. We'll show you pre-designed albums and wall art so you can see exactly how your images will look. Make any changes you like, or keep things exactly as they are. These are your memories and we want them to be perfect for you. You'll make your final decisions during this appointment, and then we'll keep you updated on the status of your order.

Ordering Appointment!


Once everything arrives, we will double check it to make sure that everything is perfect. Then we'll call you so you can take your family home! Everything will be ready to hang or display - no DIY projects needed.

Oh my gosh, I am so in love with my photos! I'm so excited that Teena captured my girl and all of her cute freckles right now!


I love that we were able to use our horse for our photo session. Teena definitely knows how to photograph a horse for its best look, and I loved being able to include him with my daughter in these pictures.

I'll be in touch shortly
