Petit Jean Workshop

Glamping at it's finest!  Petit Jean Mountain has some of the most amazing views in Arkansas and YURTS!!!  So what better place to hold a workshop?  After 8 years and at least 20 workshops under my belt,  it is time to share a those things that I have learned with others.  Out of the workshops I have attended, I feel the small ones are the best because there is more time for a little more one on one, so I am limiting this workshop to 8 attendees. I wanted to merge 2 of my favorite things: photography and camping.  But we are going to spice it up a little with glamping.  Think a yurt, canoe, campfire, waterfall, and smores!   The cost of the workshop is $450 but $50 will be waived if...

What every couple should know about engagement sessions

Southern Wedding Photographer's  guide to the perfect engagement session with your wedding photographer. DO WE REALLY NEED ENGAGEMENT PHOTOS? One of my biggest goals as a wedding photographer is to improve the overall experience of my couples.  That is why I automatically include engagement sessions with all of my credit base wedding packages.   There are several reasons why some couples choose not to do engagement sessions with their wedding photographer. My friend is new to photography and has offered to do them for free. It's just not in our budget We really just don't see the need The reasons can seem logically but let me help you see the light and why these reasons could be a bad idea.  Engagement sessions are a trial run for wedding photographers too.  If you choose not to have them done,...

Wedding and Portrait Photography by Arin

Wedding and portrait photography wasn't my goal when I started this business almost 7 years ago.   But I did have a young daughter that was always with me that I did dream of making this a mother/daughter team with.  At the time, Arin was only 11 when I put her first DSLR camera in her hand.  I myself had just learned how to shoot manually so this was like the "blind leading the blind" into the photography world.  Well, little did I know that it was so much easier for a kid to learn manual mode than it was for an adult that had shot automatic for 30 years. Even though Arin wasn't physically shooting at my portrait sessions, she was always with me so she got to see how sessions...

Film Photography – a new adventure

Film photography is my new obsession.  Two-three years ago, my inspiration photographer and friend  Julie Paisley started shooting film.  I fell in love with her work all over again but I didn't realize it was because of film.  I really thought it was a new way she was editing so I decided to try it with my digital images.  No matter what I did, my images weren't having the same tone as hers (I could never achieve her awesomeness).  And then in October of 2014, Julie shot my daughter's wedding in film and I got to watch her in action with film (never mind that I have attended at least 5 workshops of hers and seen her in action every time).  So when she offered a film workshop at her...

Ashley-Alexander House Wedding

The weather in Arkansas can be unpredictable in October but there couldn't have been a more perfect day at the Ashley-Alexander House in Scott on October 17, 2015.  A perfect day for the perfect couple, Todd and Erin.  They were married with friends and family as witnesses and a Southern pecan orchard as a backdrop. Todd and Erin met in 2009 when both were freshman at Arkansas State University.  They became friends but they had a connection like no one else.  Todd moved back to Missouri in 2010 but they never lost contact.   Finally in July 2014 they reconnected for good on September 23, 2014  which happen to be Erin's grandparents 71st wedding anniversary, Erin and Todd began dating.    By Thanksgiving, Todd was ready to ask Erin to marry him.  So on...
