Little Rock Pin Up Photography – Central Arkansas Boudoir

Miss M came to me with the idea of doing a pin up boudoir session. I love the creative challenge when clients have specific ideas or looks they want to incorporate into her shoot. I enlisted the help of one of my favorite stylists and we put together a set for M. that was modern and 40's inspired. Here are a few of my favorites from her shoot:  ...

Military Makeover | Arkansas Boudoir

Military Makeover | Arkansas Boudoir Photographers

When a girl spends her days with hair pulled back, in a military uniform and no makeup surrounded by guys-guys, every now and then she deserves to break out out of the day-to-day and glam it up. Miss D. arrived in her usual military garb with armloads of lingerie, sequins and designer shoes. Both she and her husband are mid-deployment and she wanted a gift for him and a day of pampering for herself. We had a blast and I love the images we created! Here are a few of my favorites: ...

2013 was an amazing year and 2014 promises to be even better.

Arkansas Boudoir – Little Rock Boudoir

Miss L. had been holding onto a gift certificate for a shoot with me for nearly a year before she called. She was nervous. She was worried about being in front of the camera. She wasn't sure how to "be sexy." We chatted on the phone for a while and talked about the experience my clients have in my studio. Everyone is a little nervous, everyone is uncomfortable in front of the camera (at first!) and most women don't know how to pose like a Victoria's Secret model. We talked about what she had in mind for her images and went over all of her questions. Reluctantly, but still with a little excitement, she scheduled her shoot. On the day of her boudoir session, L. arrived with her Mom to cheer her on and lots of outfits to choose from. We started hair and makeup and after shooting her first look, she was hooked on the boudoir experience. Having a blast, feeling totally comfortable and looking drop dead gorgeous. At the end of the shoot, hugs and lots of 'thank yous' were exchanged. I knew she'd had an amazing experience and left here with a renewed sense of confidence and femininity....

LIttle Rock Maternity Portraits

Little Rock Maternity Pictures – Little Rock Photographers

Some of my favorite shoots to photograph are maternity sessions. There is nothing more beautiful than a woman who is glowing with life. Being a mother myself, I know just how special  this time is for a woman. It's also a time when most of women don't feel like their usual selves. As the days on the calendar inch closer to the due date, our feet and ankles begin to swell, backs begin to ache and fatigue sets in. This is the perfect time for an expectant mommy to spend some time feeling pampered and beautiful. Recently, I had the pleasure of documenting Julie's pregnancy. As a beauty and fashion blogger (check out her fab blog iHeartHeels here!), Julie wanted to look amazing and on-trend for her portraits, so we teamed up with Face Your Day Studios for styling consultation, hair and makeup. I love that we were able to capture several distinct looks for her that showcase Julie's personality and style. Here are a few of my favorites from her session: little rock maternity pictures ...

2013 Portrait Favorites – Central Arkansas Photography

I love photographing weddings, but I absolutely adore shooting portraits in-studio. The transformation my clients experience when they work with me is the most fun and fulfilling aspect of my job as a photographer. When a woman sees herself after hair and makeup and she is in front of my lens, something new shines within her and her eyes have more sparkle and her smile is brighter. There is nothing more beautiful than a woman who is confident and feels beautiful in her own skin, and I am so blessed to be able to capture that beauty. 2013 was an amazing year full of the most wonderful portrait clients I could ask for. Here are a few of my favorites! After seeing all of these amazing transformations, you're probably wondering how much of it was photoshoped. Well, not much! The beauty of working with me is that I have only the best stylists that create the most beautiful makeovers and I've spent years perfecting the art of photographing women. The combination of talented stylists and my posing expertise creates gorgeous images straight out of camera! See below? These first shots are the 'before' the middle shot is 'straight out of camera' and the...

One of my favorite parts about being a boudoir photographer is hearing from my clients after they receive their little black book. Over the Christmas holiday, my inbox was flooded with emails from clients who loved their books and whose husbands were singing my praises. I couldn't have asked for a better gift! Here's a tidbit from one happy girl...
