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. ...

Zach + Hayley | Carter Farm Wedding

Hayley + Zach were married on a beautiful, sunny day in September with  beautiful green pastures, blue skies, and a warm breeze! It was the PERFECT fall wedding day!  I have loved getting to know these two throughout their wedding journey.  Their wedding day was an example of how much Zach and Hayley are loved by their family and friends.  From the time I arrived at the venue until the bubble exit, there was such a sweet, relaxed atmosphere that made the day so joyful.  You know those days when all you can do is smile, yep, it was that the kind of day!   It was in heaven shooting at Carter Farms in Benton, Arkansas.  The venue has a wonderful feel of rustic and elegance combined in one barn!  Enjoy...

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...
