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. When a woman wants to take beautiful photographs of herself just to document that moment in her life, because she loves herself and she's embracing all that she is, I love it. 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.  ...

Baby James’ Little Rock Newborn Portraits

My friends Pamela and Jim had their baby boy, James, almost two weeks ago. Several weeks ago, we shot their maternity portraits, so I've been waiting anxiously for the text to let me know that their bundle of joy had arrived. This little boy has a very sweet and calm personality. While he wasn't thrilled about being out of his swaddle and diaper, he was a trooper and we captured some precious memories for this new family. Here are a few of my favorites from their newborn portrait session: Charlie, the dachshund, had to get the portrait love as well. He's adjusting well to his new brother and tried every chance he could to get in a few good licks. I love this moment between Pamela and her Mom. There's nothing more special than the love between a mother, her daughter and new grandson. Congratulations, Pamela and Jim! I can't wait to photograph baby James as he grows up!!  ...

Krista and Kirk have so kindly let me share in their little man's first year.

Everything was adorable. She thought of everything...

Rachel’s Little Rock Headshots

Meet Rachel. This awesome chic is not only one of my best friends, but she also works as my assistant on weddings and some portrait sessions. She's super fun, super sweet and I can almost guarantee that she will make you laugh. She loves all things wedding and is a romantic at heart, so she's a natural for this job. Last week, we headed out in the evening to take some new headshots for her. Since we both live in downtown Little Rock, we opted to shoot in my neighborhood and take advantage of the rose bushes and lovely sidewalks. In addition to Rachel's portraits, I wanted to use this blog post as a way for my blog readers to get to know a little about her. Here are a few fun facts about Rach: 1) What do you love about weddings? I love the creativity you get to see at weddings. Couples have such a unique way of exhibiting their own style. But above all else, it's all about the florals for me. 2) What's your favorite pastime? Favorite pasttime would be playing Kickball. I'm taking a season off, but I definitely miss dressing up in crazy costumes each weekend and playing with my friends. 3) If you could travel...

What to Wear to your Spring Session?

Picking your outfits for your portrait or engagement session should be fun! What you wear is a reflection of your personalities and the season. Since Spring has sprung and it feels like Summer is just around the corner, I thought I'd put together a little bit of inspiration for portrait season! I recommend keeping it simple and timeless, but add in some fun elements to punch up your look a notch. For the ladies, adding a pop of color, some fun shoes, and some accessories that coordinate with your look really help pull everything together. For the guys, keep it really simple - coordinate his look with yours and opt for solid tops and khakis, or a blazer over a fitted t-shirt with jeans or slacks. Here are a few fun outift ideas I found on Polyvore. If you haven't visited this site, you should! It's an awesome resource for fashion - affordable and luxury - and it's a great place to try mixing and matching pieces before you buy. If you like any of what you see below, just click on the look 'title' and you'll be taken to the Polyvore page that will show you what store every item...

Jamie & Michael’s Little Rock Easter Portraits

I love it when my clients come back to me after their wedding for more portraits. Remember Jamie and Michael? I shot their wedding last May. Jamie emailed me a few weeks ago and asked me to take some Easter portraits for her and Michael. I loved the idea. I loved it even more when she said she wanted to bring Jaws, their bulldog. I secretly hoped she would bring some bunny ears for him, but I opted not to ask about it since cute, fluffy ears on such a masculine pooch might offend Michael. To my surprise, Jamie was on the same wavelength as me and showed up with ears in hand! Here are a few of my favorite Easter portraits of The Newtons: ...
