Kristen Soileau Portraits | Baton Rouge Photographer, traveling to you bio picture
  • Louisiana soul with a West Coast mentality.

    Pure.
    I want black coffee paired with a dash of cinnamon. I love it natural. My knack for natural beauty in life goes hand in hand with my desire to capture your beauty as is. The way the day was in itself. How the sunlights streamed through your hair putting off a natural glow. The way you laugh with your eyes closed and grin spread wide. I want to highlight the beauty found in your scars and freckles. My job is to capture the essence of you and in that, I keep it simple and pure. You are enough.

    Passionate.
    I love what I do. Seriously. I get such an adrenaline rush from making sure timelines flow correctly. When there is an independent souled toddler running around without a care in the world. When the grandmother of the family gets herself out on the dance floor. Those moments..I love. They fuel my passion for my business as well as my relationship with my clients. I care more about you guys than I do about the perfect composition. I want to make sure you are cared for, loved, and relaxed before I begin my job photographing your day.

    Personal.
    I’m happy to say most of my clients are dear friends of mine. To share such an intimate time with someone, I can’t help but keep up with them. By the time the wedding day rolls around, we have enjoyed dinner or coffee together. We have laughed about favorite TV shows and nonsense happenings from day to day. I have cried with them during hard times and have held on to several when they have received the worst news. I take you with the joys and the utter lows of life. Above all, I care about you first.

Liv | Lifestyle | Lake Charles, LA

If I were three again, Liv would be my best friend. She’s independent, hilarious, and super sassy- in the best way possible. One of my favorite things about that day was meeting all her dolls. One in particular has stuck with me, her doll named pickle. Only a rockstar can name their doll pickle! We had a tea party, painted a master piece, rode bikes, and popped bubbles. It was a good day.

Ashley | Bridals | Baton Rouge, LA

This beauty got married yesterday and I could not be more thrilled to showcase her bridals! I’m not one for big dresses, but I instantly fell in love with Ashley’s tulle ball gown. She looked like a doll! I felt honored to witness her and her high school sweetheart make a lifetime commitment yesterday. The tears were rollin’!

Mia & Craig | Wedding | Lake Charles, LA

This easy going bride made my job a piece of cake. She didn’t want anything fancy, she just wanted their special day captured. Even when I showed at the salon her and her two cousins were just sitting around, calming chatting about a variety of things. I then went over to the guys hotel room and they were just lounging around watching sports TV. No big bridal party, not a ton of attention draw to themselves. I like weddings like that:)

Keeping the sanity alive

I’ve been meaning to do this for a while. I always envy photographers who (seem) to have it together with there to-do lists. It wasn’t until I had a breakdown this past week that my sweet counselor advised demanded that I create a system to keep my sanity.

So here is it, a big ol’ giant to do list custom to my needs and large enough for me not to forget about. It’s fairly straight forward and simple to use. I went to a local print shop to print then got it laminated so it could be used over and over. Feel free to download from the following link: todolist. (Dimensions are 17×22)

If you happen to actually take my advice and use it, please tag me personally or hashtag #kristensoileauportraits in an instagram post so I can see how you like to keep your sanity.

Let’s all do everyone a favor and keep the sanity alive!
