Child Portrait Session

January 2nd, 2015

We love spending time with families capturing those special images. This is one little girl seemed to be having fun getting her picture taken. It shows in her face. Here are a couple of images from her recent session in south Lake Charles.

We look forward to capturing her next milestone portraits. We would love to meet your family as well.

God bless!


Real Estate Photographers in Lake Charles

January 2nd, 2015

As Real Estate Photographers in Lake Charles, we had the opportunity to provide property photos for a commercial property recently. Because these images are used to attract potential buyers, it is important to present them in the best light possible (no pun intended). But since this is South Louisiana, the weather is always an important variable. Especially for this last set of images. We were working with a deadline, but the weather was simply not cooperating. All Christmas week and the days following were either cloudy, rainy, foggy, or stormy. But then it happened… sunshine. Wasting no time, these images were created in this window of opportunity.

It was a good thing we wasted no time. By that evening the storm clouds rolled back in and it’s been gloomy ever since. At least up to the time of this writing.

If you are looking for Real Estate Photography in Lake Charles or the surrounding area of southwest Louisiana, give us a call or email. We would be happy to help you sell that property.

A Family of Girls Portrait Session

April 22nd, 2013

I love this family

It was time for their next child’s one year session and even though they had moved nearly two hours away in Texas, this lovely family wanted their precious girls’ images produced again by Bart Leger Photography. This session included one more girl since the last session. That’s right…another addition to the family. We recreated the last daughter’s one year portrait on our rare, painted carousel horse in our studio. We also did individual color studies on the rest of the girls as well. Here are a few of their images.

Recent Senior Portrait Session in North Lake Charles

April 22nd, 2013

The second time was a charm

Not everything goes as planned. We were reminded of that when the day came for this senior’s scheduled portrait session. April in south Louisiana can be fairly unpredictable.

We were having great weather, that is up until the day of the shoot. A cold front had come through and the temperatures dipped into the mid 40’s and the wind was blowing about 20 miles an hour. But we showed up anyway. After only about 10 minutes we realized that everyone was uncomfortable, especially our senior.

So… we did what we had to. We rescheduled.

The second time out we had great weather and we produced some nice images for this lovely senior. Here are just a few…

She was thrilled with her images and so were we. We just love working with seniors.

We trust you have a great day!

Marlie’s Senior Portraits – Lake Charles Senior Photographers

February 28th, 2013

Rust is in

At least it was for Marlie’s senior portraits. We had a great time with this senior creating her images. The camera loved her and I believe she had a great time also. At least that’s what she said after we were done. Music to my ears. We love it when seniors get great images and enjoy the experience as well. Here are a few images from her session.

The Little Doctor to Be – A Portrait Session in Lake Charles

February 27th, 2013

What a precious little one

Recently we had the joy of creating images of this little guy and his dad. We love marking milestones and showing relationships. The first image from the session is a Black and White study. He did a great job for the camera.

His dad is a physician so we did some with his dad’s books and then one with his dad to show the relationship. Here’s the little future doctor.

It is so wonderful to capture these relationship moments with our clients.

Thanks again from Bart Leger Photography in Lake Charles.



Sweet 1 Year Portraits

February 16th, 2013

Little Miss A’s one year portraits!

I can’t imagine anything cuter than a little girl with an attitude. And boy has little Miss A got one! She has a personality all her own.

We loved creating these images a few weeks ago on the front porch, and we hope you enjoy a peek as much as mom and dad did.

Here are a couple of images from our session.
