About Us

    Barberito Photographers is a family owned company founded by Mike Barberito in 1978 as a local New Orleans based school portrait company. Over the years, Jackie and Chris Barberito joined Mike in the family business, along with a team of photographers who have decades of combined experience in portrait photography both in schools and in our studio. 

            BPI and its crew of professional photographers service schools and students all over Southeastern Louisiana from our onsite Day Care Division to our Senior Portrait Specialists and every milestone in between for your student’s school career. We pride ourselves on being part of our communities and BPI schools and parents call a local number to reach a dedicated customer service and production team at our home office in Metairie.

            The BPI team is led by Master Photographer Chris Dugas. Chris and BPI Photographers have advanced training in all the technical and artistic elements that go into producing a quality, timeless product to capture the major milestones your student’s school year. BPI programs and services include School Day, ID Cards, Grandparents’ Day, Santa/Holiday, Class Groups, Sports and Activities, Reunions, Spring, Communion, Dances, Grads, Seniors, and Yearbook production.
