Katie’s Senior Session

Featured

This was one of my favorite photoshoots this fall! Katie scheduled a morning shoot with me on November 3 and the leaves were perfect!

We took all of her gorgeous photos here in Landis where we both live. 🙂IMG_3601IMG_3603IMG_3609IMG_3612

 

 

We snapped some cute pictures with her little vintage bike that she brought to her session. I love when my clients bring along something personal to their photoshoot! It makes them unique and memorable!

Congratulations and enjoy your SENIOR year Katie!

Brailey’s Pageant Portfolio!

Miss Brailey is doing an amazing job in all of her pageants this year! She needed a special photoshoot to build up her portfolio and I’m so glad her momma messaged me!

This session was so much fun! We went to downtown Leslie and took all of her photos there. I just love this unique little town and all of their cute buildings, doors, and alleyways!

She done so good with all of the poses and positions! We got some really great candid shots as well!

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!

 

 

 

 

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!

 wwphoto_11wwphoto_12wwphoto_15

    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!

Week 11 Landscape: Reflection

Featured

Week 11 didn’t leave me a whole lot of options here in North Central Arkansas. I was hoping to use water for my landscape reflection and we are currently under a burn ban here. Everything is all dried up! Our rainy, wet fall definitely has not started yet.

However, I have some awesome neighbors who have an absolutely beautiful view. They have a pond about the size of a football field in their front yard! I always love going over their and enjoying their view… and their company! 🙂 Thank you Lanny and Debbie!

So here is my Landscape Reflection… I love the sun flare in this photo! No actions or presets needed here! 🙂IMG_6845logo

Week 9 – Artistic Shadows

The opposite of light is dark, the absence of light is shadow.

Clothed in shadows she is beautiful.

I used my little model and some lace to create these beautiful flowery shadows. The sun was setting on us as we were trying to snap some quick photos. Luckily I had Lane to help hold up the lace and Lily simply posed. The thing she does best! 🙂

I’m so lucky to have such a beautiful girl… on the inside AND out!

Here are some fun ones in COLOR…

 

Week 4 – Portrait

Featured

 

Week 4 – Shoot a portrait of someone.

Hey everyone! I know I’m a little late for my assignment this week, but I’m hoping you guys will understand. It’s been a little hectic and crazy around our house these past couple of weeks. We are trying to get back into the school routine! 😦

There is one thing that is different for Lily this year… and that’s BALLET! She really wanted to go to school with big brother this year but I just wasn’t ready to let her go. I want to keep her home with me as long as I can! Ha! Ha! Yah I’m that mom… 🙂

So I let her do ballet with her cousin Emmalea and so far she is LOVING it!

I decided to use her for my weekly assignment since I didn’t have any photoshoots scheduled. I just love using my kiddos as models! Heck… they’re the reason I even bought my camera! 😀

So I hope you guys enjoy our little mini ballet photoshoot that we done in our front yard!
