Happy Mother’s Day!

Although I celebrated my 'first' Mother's Day last year with a big pregnant belly, this is my first actual Mother's Day with Emma-Kate. I feel so blessed to have such a wonderful little person as my daughter. Every day she amazes me and every day being a mother makes me appreciate my own mom even more. A mom's work never ends and a mom's love is the most special and true  - no matter what the circumstance. Thank you to my mom, Paula, for the many wonderful lessons and memories  you've given me over the years. Here's a very special slide-show of family photos to honor my mom, grandmothers and great-grandmother. I love you all dearly. ...

Nancy and Jackson’s Fayetteville Engagement Portraits

Last weekend I traveled to Fayetteville for Nancy and Jackson's engagement portraits. After changing our shoot time several times due to stormy weather, we finally decided just to get out there and take advantage of the sun even though the sky was gray. We hit several beautiful locations. Nancy found a beautiful piece of land in Springdale near their town-home, and and I ran across some wildflowers in Fayetteville. We also made a stop on Dickson street for a few urban shots. There so many wonderful images that I'm posting their session in two parts - check back for part two! I love how cozy and warm this shot feels. The shot below might be my favorite from the day. I'm not sure exactly what it is about this image that strikes me, but I just love how happy Nancy looks and how engaged they are with each other. This is the stuff that makes my job so much fun! ...
