Jamie Heyl Photography began 11 years ago; I'm completely self-taught and have attended several workshops and conventions over the years.   Continuing education is really important to me, I strive to grow and change with the business, keeping up with the latest techniques.  Our business started in Morgan City, where we lived for 5 years; currently, my home studio is located in Houma.

Originally, I am from New Orleans, where I grew up on the West Bank.   I have two kids, my son is 13 and my daughter is 10.  My husband and I have been married for 11 years.

Wedding and portrait photography, specifically newborns and babies, is what I specialize in.   Over the years, I've photographed everything from dogs to houses but these two types of photograhy are where my passion lies.    While they are two completely different types of photography, there is something so rewarding about photographing someone's wedding - the beginning of their family - then being a part of their lives as their family begins to grow and change.  

Thank you for your interest in my photography and for taking the time to learn a little more about me.   I appreciate you and hope to meet you soon!

Our Studio

We offer both a small, indoor home studio as well as a larger outdoor space.   The home studio can accomodate children up to about 2 years of age as well as limited family and sibling portraits.   Our outdoor space is located just down the street on a large, wooded lot.   This outdoor space offers a variety of looks, depending on the season as well as a custom, rustic porch that is perfect for cake smashes and milk baths.   I also occasionally offer themed mini sessions using this setup.  To see samples of our outdoor studio space, check out the following blog posts:
