Meet my friend, Joy Breaux, owner of Lagniappe Creative.

A Collaboration of Creative Minds

I first met Joy almost a decade ago - at that time she was the owner of Cher Bebe Birth Stories. I had the privilege of working alongside Joy for several years as a second-shooter, and learning from her how to run a successful photography business. It is safe to say her talents know no bounds, as she is an incredibly gifted photographer and savvy business woman with a unique eye for creativity and a heart for meeting needs.

As we all know, 2020 was a year of firsts for so many and the negative impacts of the pandemic were felt nationwide. The policies that were put into place in our hospitals prevented photographers from attending/photographing births; with that, Joy's business quite literally came to a halt (as it did for birth photographers everywhere). She took this time as an opportunity to seek out other avenues where she could invest her gifts and talents. Thus, came the birth of Lagniappe Creative! At Lagniappe Creative, Joy provides strategic branding and marketing for purpose-driven businesses.

I was excited for the opportunity to collaborate with Joy for her branding session for Lagniappe Creative. She had a clear vision for this session - our focus was on capturing AUTHENTIC images to portray her creative work process. I absolutely love her home office where much of this creative process takes place. Achieving authentic images with Joy came easy because I simply snapped away while she worked. It was a true pleasure working with her, and I look forward to watching Joy grow Lagniappe Creative.
