Martin Family Holiday Mini Session – Little Rock Family Photographer

Meet the Martin Family. Cami contacted me a few weeks ago about shooting some portraits of her boys, Alec and Jacob, and I was so glad she did! In the past they've had super-traditional in-studio portraits taken and this year she decided she wanted something fun, fresh and relaxed. That's exactly what she got! We met at a field in West Little Rock and took full advantage of the beautiful sun, fall foliage and wide open spaces. Here are a few of my favorite shots from our session: Here's The Martin's 2010 Holiday card. The inside is even more adorable than the front - I LOVE it! ...

Home for the Holidays

Thanksgiving and Christmas are my two favorite holidays of the year. There is something so warm and magical about the weeks between these two major holidays, and I just plain love everything about the season. Spending time with my favorite people, gathering around a big table to share a wonderful meal, decorating until my feet ache and baking up delicious goodies in the kitchen make me a very happy woman. Having a child to share this time with is more rewarding than I ever could have imagined.  I'm lucky to be Emma-Kate's Mom and to show her all of the wondrous things that make up this time of year. Every year we spend Thanksgiving week with my parents in Fayetteville and most of the Christmas festivities and celebrating with Andrew's family in Little Rock. Last week was non-stop hustle and bustle and entirely too much eating. Here are some of my favorite shots from our time with my parents and our time at home preparing for Christmas: My Dad is always in the kitchen, so Emma-Kate naturally spent a lot of time there too. Here, she's smelling spices with my Dad and reading with my Mom. We made a trip to the Fayetteville...

Sewell Family Holiday Portraits – Fayetteville Family Portrait Photographer

I had the pleasure of photographing the Sewell family last week in Fayetteville. The session included their four furry babies, lots of Christmas cheer and beautiful Fall weather. There were many reasons that made this session fun and a lot of connections that made the afternoon full of gab and laughter. Jill and I met years ago while working at my parents' store, Melody's Choices, her daughter Kaitlyn and I are members of the same sorority and I'm photographing Kaitlyn's best friend's sister's wedding. I love how small the world can feel sometimes! Here are a few of my favorite photos from their session: ...

Lauren and Chris are Engaged – Little Rock Wedding Photography

Meet Lauren and Chris. This super sweet and down to earth couple are exchanging vows in May. They met at work a few years ago, and after working on several projects together sparks began to fly. They've been together ever since. Chris and Lauren's wedding is going to be a warm, family affair full of unique and personal touches. I can't wait! We headed to North Little Rock for our session and ended the shoot in their backyard for some fun, musical photos. Here are a few of my favorites from their session: Don't you love this mural?

Jamie & Michael’s Engagement Session – Little Rock Wedding Photography

Jamie and Michael met through a mutual friend. They began their love story over text messages. Head over heels, Michael drove over four hours across Arkansas to meet Jamie for the first time. They've been together ever since! After a few years of dating, Michael asked Jamie to attend a firemen's Father's Day event. Jamie happily agreed to come along, but was a little hesitant when she was asked to assist Michael in an 'training exercise.' Afraid of heights, Jamie reluctantly climbed into the firetruck's bucket and hugged Michael tightly as they rode up the ladder. Once 100 feet in the air, Michael surprised Jamie with a proposal and a beautiful one-of-a-kind ring. She said YES...

I Salute You

Today is Veteran's Day and it makes me stop and think about sacrifice and love. My family and my life have been directly affected by war and its consequences. Several members of my family are veterans and have served their country proudly and honorably. Today, I'm thinking mostly of my Dad and Andrew, and how service and sacrifice have effected them. My uncle, Eddie, was killed in Vietnam in 1970. He had been in combat for only two months and was 20 years young. The loss of Eddie devastated my grandmother and forever changed my father, his father and his siblings. Even though I never knew my uncle, I have always felt a connection to him and have always been touched by how much he meant to my Dad. There is a piece missing from my father that cannot ever be recovered, and it hurts to know that his family, like too many families, had to deal with the reality and tragedy of war. My husband, Andrew, was in the Army when I met him. The idea of him being deployed was a hazy possibility in the distance of our love-struck reality.  Within three or four months of moving to Little Rock...
