Motherhood. It's the most amazing, life changing, whirlwind, joyous, non-stop role a woman can have. One of my favorite things about photographing mothers is that a photoshoot with me gives them a few hours of quiet. A small amount of time alone, focused on themselves. It's a chance to relax, have fun and feel totally pampered. Capturing who you are today, as your kids see you, is one of the most precious gifts a mother can give herself and her children. Your kids love you just as you are, not 5 years younger or 10 pounds lighter. To them, you are the most beautiful woman alive.
The story of a mom is so special that I wanted to create something unique. Something to showcase just how beautiful moms are and how precious the time is when our little ones are young. So, recently, I filmed a shoot with my friend and client, Merry Klien. She's a wife, a mother of two young boys and a business owner. My videographer, Nathan Willis, perfectly captured Merry's photoshoot experience with me and her beautiful family.

These are couture portrait sessions designed for girls who have a flair for fashion, love to get dolled up and want gorgeous images that will last a lifetime! More details to follow on these sessions. For now, enjoy Raygan's session. She is the most gorgeous, down to earth, sweet and smart girl! Love her!!
Taylor is an amazing girl with a gorgeous smile, a warm heart and a super sweet personality. I loved having her in my studio last year! She also happens to be an instructor at Pure Barre - my all time favorite workout! We had a blast together during her shoot and I love the images we created together. Here are a few of my favorites!
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
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...
I had the pleasure of photographing Staci a few weeks ago. She was such a joy to work with - an infectious smile and super sweet personality AND she was so excited for her shoot. I love the images we created!
Another sweet client from last year came back to the studio this season for some super cute holiday portraits with her hubby and furry baby. Love this couple!!
I love it when I get to photograph my clients each year. When Laura contacted me about a session for their first anniversary, I was thrilled. She wanted to document the cutting of their wedding cake and take some portraits to document their first year. I love this idea!! Here are a few of my favorite shots from their gorgeous session. These two couldn't be any cuter!
