First Anniversary Portraits – First Anniversary Cake Cutting

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! ...

Little Rock Portrait Photographer – The Before and After

One of my favorite parts about shooting glamour and boudoir sessions are the 'before and afters.' I love seeing how people react when they flip through one of my before and after albums in the studio, and I love hearing clients tell friends about how they should check out my website to see the makeovers. The thing I don't love hearing is that many people assume that my work is VERY photoshopped because the transformation is, so, well, transformative. The truth is that most of the magic that happens at my studio is created in the makeup chair and right in front of my lens. Let me explain. For starters, almost none of my clients walk around looking like their 'before' shot.

Little Rock Photographers – Little Rock Portrait Photography

When they look back at what you've documented of their lives through photographs, you need to be part of those memories, too. Spending an afternoon getting pampered to create a gorgeous photograph of yourself may seem frivolous or indulgent to you, but you know what? For all of those PB&Js and carrot sticks prepared, those hundreds of loads of laundry, for picking up toys, hours of  homework, wiping away tears and kissing boo-boos, for cheering in the stands and watching proudly at graduation, YOU deserve to treat yourself and your kids deserve to have a beautiful photograph of you. They will cherish it forever, I promise. ...

Pretty awesome, right?!  ...

Mother Daughter Glamour Portrait Session – Little Rock Family Portrait Photography

Susanne and Hannah's portrait session was so much fun. Mother-daughter sessions are so special and I love shooting them. There is nothing more precious than the bond between a mother and her daughter; I love being able to capture that relationship, especially with younger daughters since I get to watch them grow up! Here are a few of my favorite portraits from their session: ...
