Spring Sessions Marathon

Do you need to tell your family's story?  I love to capture those real life stories!  It is one of the reasons I became a photographer almost 9 years ago. If I could go back in time to capture those moments with my family while they were still home, I would do it in a heartbeat.  So don't miss your chance to freeze those precious moments because once they are gone, they are gone. In the past, I have offered spring mini sessions and they have been great but I have always felt that 25 minutes is not sufficient amount of time to truly catch those real stories that will last a lifetime .  So this year, I am changing it up a little and offering 4 one hour sessions {my half...

Emerald Park Wedding | Erica and Denny

Emerald Park is one of the hidden treasures of North Little Rock, Arkansas.  When Erica contacted me about her December wedding, she mentioned that she was thinking about Petit Jean State Park (one of the most beautiful state parks we have in Arkansas).  So I knew what vision she had in mind but since she lived only minutes (literally) from Emerald Park, I suggested she have a look there.   Erica and Denny were having a small and intimate wedding with only family, they decided Emerald Park was perfect.   Emily Wright of Julep Floral, was asked to handle the bridal bouquet and the rest of the floral designs for the day.  The bride has saved some very special items from both of her grandfathers that had passed away several years before. ...

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...

Monterey Workshop by Laura & Rachel

For the last 2 years, I have heard so much about how magical the lighting is in California.  I had dreamed of maybe one day shooting there but really didn't think that dream would ever come true until one day on facebook, I saw where my friend Laura Hernandez was having her first workshop.  I thought about attending for a total of 30 seconds before I sent her a message that I wanted to attend.  After all, I had admired her work for quite sometime.  So without hesitation, I paid for the invoice and then started dreaming.  Attending a California workshop from some of the most talented of photographers, was a dream! January is usually down time for photographers but I love to use it for education.  I am big on...

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,...
