Week 13 – Zoomed-in Landscape

IMG_3661logoHey everyone! Happy Tuesday! I’m going to try to commit back to my weekly photo challenge since the busy fall season and all of the holidays are over!




We have had so much rain in the last couple of weeks and quite a few foggy days. I grabbed my camera and put on the muck boots. I figured I might as well capture the mood. I had some help too!

 My little rainy day companions!




The weather made for some neat photos but I’m definitely ready for summer to get here!





Asher Gray Newborn Session



Adam & Amanda welcomed their 3rd baby into the world this month on February 5! I had the honor to do his newborn photos and I’m so glad they entrusted me with his very first photo shoot! Baby Asher done amazing and slept like a champ!



I got to try out some new poses and I loved doing all of these in B&W!





Baby Asher was sleepy and content. He let us pose him and move him around with out a blink. He even let us play dress up for a few photos! 🙂





Asher has two older sisters Alivia & Anna. These girls will have so much fun this next year watching their baby brother grow and play. For now though, this picture is worth a thousand words… 🙂



Congrats to the Merritt’s! I pray that the Lord blesses you with happy, healthy days, and lots of sweet memories to enjoy! I can’t wait to photograph little man again!



Dawsyn Newborn Session

Sarah & Grady welcomed sweet little Dawsyn Grace into the world on February 11 at 10:35 AM. She weighed 7lbs 6oz & was 19in long. My birthday is also Feb. 11 so we get to share our birthdays! 🙂



I love getting to hold these sweet babies and capturing their first days of life! Within a matter of months their little bodies will be growing and they will never be this small again!

Dawsyn has two older siblings… Big Brother Hayes and Big Sister Raylen.



Hayes giving his protective big brother expression!  LOL!

I know they will have lots of fun growing up together. I can’t wait to photograph these cuties again!


Congratulations on your newest addition to the family! I hope you cherish every moment because before too long she will be all grown up just like her big brother and sister!


Brad + Candice


I am finally getting to share some of Brad & Candice’s wedding photos with all of you! It was a cold and windy day for an outside wedding, but that didn’t take away from their big day at all! If anything, I think it made it more memorable and it’s a day they will never forget!

Here are a few of their pre-wedding snaps. 🙂





Brad & Candice wanted to do a first look before the ceremony. I love the emotion in these photos! 😀

We done a few family photos next, and then it was time for a WEDDING!


    It started to rain a little bit so everyone moved all of the chairs and decorations inside the barn. It was decorated beautifully with a rustic country feel! The lights and lanterns glowed perfect for a cloudy fall day!



  The ceremony was short and sweet and right to the point! 🙂


After the ceremony everyone dug into some awesome bbq and fried pies! Then Brad & Candice had their first dance, signing of their marriage license, and cutting the cake!







It was a beautiful wedding and I loved getting to be the one to capture their special day!





Logan + Jessica


I had the honor to photograph Logan & Jessica’s Wedding in November. It took place at a beautiful spot called Mount Eagle, located a short distance from Shirley Arkansas.

It was a pretty warm day for mid November with cloudy skies and a few rain drizzles before the ceremony!

Here are a few pre-wedding snap shots!

Logan and his best man finishing up the decorations. I got to help with some of that too! 🙂




The guests started arriving soon and the ceremony began.



Logan didn’t seem nervous at all. I felt like he was happily anticipating these moments!



They wrote their own vows for their wedding, exchanged rings, and planted a tree.


Then they officially became husband & wife!


It was a beautiful fall wedding and I’m so glad I got to be a part of it!




Devin & Kelsie’s October Wedding


I was completely surprised last month when I got a call informing me that Devin and Kelsie were going to be getting married. I was so happy for my brother-in-law! They wanted me to do their wedding photos and of course I said YES! I went on to ask them when the big day was going to be and got another surprise….    It’s in two weeks! LOL!

So here are a few pictures of their October Wedding! I’m so glad I got to be a part of it and that they trusted me to capture it!


I came over a little early and snapped a few photos of Kelsie getting ready. I got to visit with her a little bit before everyone arrived and the hectic preparations started. She is so sweet and I’m glad she will be a part of the family!



The wedding took place in Springfield, Arkansas and it was a beautiful sunny day. It was an outside wedding under a tree, with hay bales, and lanterns. It was a little chilly with a slight breeze but it definitely made it feel like a fall wedding.








I love how everything was simple but beautiful. It wasn’t overly decorated or busy. The colors, flowers, leaves, and everything complimented each other and it all went together really well.






Congratulations Devin & Kelsie!

Thank you for letting me capture your special day! I pray God blesses your marriage and your life together. Keep Him at the head of your union and you will make it through this crazy beautiful thing we call life!  Always confide in each other and be honest. Your spouse is your best friend and they will always be there… so always be kind and love each other even through the hard times! Love you guys!




Jessica & Logan’s Engagement Session


I had so much fun photographing Jessica and Logan! They were full of energy and really excited for their session. They both had really fun personalities and they seemed head over heels for each other!


They will be getting married next month in November at Mount Eagle and they are both counting down the days!


I can’t wait to photograph their BIG DAY!


Congratulations to these two!



Week 12 – High Key Expose Portrait


I am a little bit behind on my personal photography project because it is the busy fall season right now. I have been trying to get all of my photo sessions edited and finished before I even start to think about Christmas mini sessions!

The weather has been absolutely amazing and we have been soaking it all up before winter gets here. We are going to carve pumpkins today and Halloween is just around the corner!

My week 12 project was to photograph a high key exposure to the right. Create a light, airy, high key portrait.

I decided to use one of Logan and Jessica’s photos from their engagement session. We were able to use a beautiful spot in Mtn. View and I got so many great shots from their session.


I feel like this photo definitely fits the description for week 12! Beautiful, light and airy with a high key exposure to the upper right corner. Can you guys see the geese in the background? 🙂

I will be putting Jessica and Logan’s engagement session on the blog soon! Hope you guys enjoy!
