Cara Noel Dean

I like to say I am a Florida Native and a New Orleans Girl wrapped into one.

I was born in Florida but grew up in New Orleans and spent most of my summers in the Clearwater area. After living in Pensacola for three years, I moved back to New Orleans. What's that saying about how a New Orleans girl always comes home?

I'm a single mom of 2, ages 14 and 20, and I love binge-watching TV Dramas, playing on social media, going to Disney World, and being a mom taxi for my little dancer. I also work full-time as an affiliate manager for Apogee agency.

I have been a blogger and social media consultant with both local and national brands since 2007. I've had the pleasure of working with brands such as Carnival Cruise Lines, Udi's Gluten-Free, New Orleans City Park, Audubon Nature Institute, Academy of the Sacred Heart New Orleans, Arden Cahill Academy, and many more. I used to run Peanuts Are Evil, Jefferson Parish Parent, and Pint-Sized NOLA.

I have been in love with photography from as far back as I can remember. I used to get into so much trouble using up all the film when I was a child just taking pictures. Pictures tell a story that sometimes words can't express. I love telling stories through pictures.

I would love to work with you! To learn more about options for advertising your business/brand or to hire me as a photographer- send me an email at
