How to Choose a Boudoir Photographer – Arkansas Boudoir Photography

How to Choose a Boudoir Photographer I get asked a lot about boudoir photography. What's a session like? Who books these kinds of shoots? How exactly does it work? What do you photoshop - can you make me look smaller? What should I wear? Etc, etc, etc. I also get asked about what separates a good boudoir photographer from the rest and what kinds of questions you should ask when booking a session with a boudoir photographer.

Baby Bump and Shower Ahead!

One of my closest friends and her husband are expecting a baby girl this Fall, and I couldn't be more excited for them. There is nothing more magical than a couple's first baby. It's a wildly fun and special time, and I was so thrilled when Sarah asked me to photograph her growing baby bump. The same weekend of her maternity session, I co-hosted a baby shower for her with several of our sorority sisters and her family. Sarah's sister-in-law and sister are amazingly talented in their DIY craftiness, so the shower was filled with personal touches and handmade goodness...

Glamour Session – Little Rock Portraits

Tory's Contemporary Little Rock Portraits - A Glamour Photoshoot Tory's glamour session was so much fun. When she told me she was doing this session "just because," I was thrilled.

There isn't a better photoshoot or experience than that. Here are a few more of my favorites from her Little Rock portrait session: And, as usual, Frank had to get in the shot. Tory didn't mind, though! She actually included this image in her album! How fun is that??  ...

Introducing Glamour Sessions!

  Forget the 'Glamour Shots' portraits you may remember from the 90's. My glamour sessions are inspired by fashion and the modern woman. Glamour portraiture gives every woman the opportunity to look and feel like a model. These sessions allow you to spend an afternoon doing nothing but getting pampered, letting loose, loving your body and enjoying being you. These sessions are different from a typical portrait or boudoir shoot. A glamour session includes a luxurious makeover, styling consultation and posing coaching to create stunning images. These sessions are perfect for documenting major life milestones and celebrating the women closest to you. Just got your post-baby body back? Turning 30? Celebrating your 25th wedding anniversary? Guys, are you looking for the perfect way to thank your wife, mother or sister for being an amazing woman? Just because you want to celebrate being you? Glamour sessions can be a solo affair or you can include family and friends for beautiful group portraits. Sessions start at $250 and fine-art products begin at $300. Email me for detailed pricing and booking availability.  ...
