The Bekery, Lake Charles | Family Photography | Cody & Jamie

Breakfast Done Right at the Bekery in Lake Charles

If there’s anything in the world I love more than candid, non formal, photoshoots it’s when they’re booked by people who also let us “do our thing thing” creatively. The Heards are some of the coolest people around and we love working with them when we get a chance.

Cody & Jamie Heard had an the idea to do this photo shoot during their weekend ritual of going to get family breakfast at The Bekery in downtown-ish Lake Charles. If you haven’t ever been there, check it out! It’s such a cozy little place to eat complete with a nifty little outdoor dining area to make you feel fancy and stuff. This shoot went great and I’m excited to be sharing it with you guys! The people at the Bekery were awesome, friendly, and served some pretty incredible food. The natural light inside their facility is STUPIDLY AWESOME. Nothing short of an amazing experience!

Just a fun side note: I recently learned that the Heard’s oldest daughter, Maddie, basically is unable to forget anyone or anything. It’s fun to watch her recall things we thought she would never remember. This observation was made quickly after running into them at the Park a few months later. Is that a random enough bit of information for you?

PS: We did step out and take a few “posed” shots afterwards outside the Bekery! I can’t wait to see what the future holds for you guys and your amazing family. The Heards were hilarious and a blast to work with! I can’t wait to do it again. Ya, Heard? (I really do apologize for how awful of an attempt at a joke that was. I promise to “cease & desist”).

In case your looking for the Bekery, I’ve included some information! They are simply just THAT amazing.
