Societé de Sainte Anne

It's always fun to see your work in print!  Last year I was asked by Louisiana Life magazine to capture the Societé of St. Anne, a Carnival walking club which started in 1969 as a rebellion to an orbinance that removed tradtional walking parades to the French Quarter.  And unlike other Krewes with exclusive and costly memberships, St. Anne only requires that you show up and wear an awesome costume...which is really what the spirit of Mardi Gras is all about.    

It was my first time experiencing St. Anne, and the freezing weather didn't stop anyone from coming out and having a good time.  If elaborate homemade costumes and crazy people are your thing, then St. Anne's is your kind of parade.  But be warned, you can't just show up- you have to participate.  Half-assed costumes receive dirty looks, and maybe worse.

Can't wait to see what 2016 has in store.  See ya'll out there.  

See ya out there on Tuesday!

  1. We attended an event here this past Sunday & had an awesome experience from beginning to end. They served great food at these venues and the salad I had for dinner was delicious. The service also was impeccable.
