Ruby Isla - Lifestyle Newborn I had the pleasure of working with Jon and Grace capturing Grace's glowing pregnancy and Ruby Isla's newborn session.  I just adore her names!  Grace and I began dialoging about her maternity and newborn sessions months before her first session.  I love how opened she was to ideas and helped me pick out colors and setups for Ruby's session.  After a few phone conversations, I finally met the lovely expecting parents at a vineyard for their session.   They were spectacular and very comfortable being in front of the camera that I hardly had to pose them.  Their love and admiration of one of another were evidence in all of the images. 

I am so thankful Jon and Grace allowed me to sneak in a few shots of their beautiful family of three in their own home.  Love the clean and fresh decors and all of their handmade furniture and DIY items, too!  I feel inspired since I left their home and more determined to continue offering lifestyle sessions to my future clients.  Thank you, Jon & Grace for being super awesome to work with and trusting me with your gorgeous princess!!   I am a little sad that you are moving away but I truly hope you come visit NWA often and stop by to say hello and let me capture a few images of your beautiful Ruby!!  I wish you both happiness, perfect health and constant joy raising up your daughter and all that you set your minds to do!!

Simcha Evangeline | Seven Days New | Siloam Springs, AR Newborn Photographer This little darling one 10 lbs and 22 inches!  She is my biggest newborn to date and a joy to work to photograph.  The best part about her session is that her big sister Tirzah is my very first client (EVER!).  I am so thankful their Mommy and Daddy gave me a chance with my photography.  I've enjoyed documenting Tirzah's mile stones and their friendship.  It is such an honor to have the same opportunities with Simcha too. 
Here's the meaning her beautiful name.  It fits her perfectly!!  Simcha (Hebrew, meaning joy and gladness). Evangeline (Greek, meaning evangelist).
How beautiful upon the mountains
are the feet of him who brings good news,
who publishes peace, who brings good news of happiness,
who publishes salvation,
who says to Zion, “Your God reigns.”
Isaiah 52:7

Bailei - Class of 2014  

I am so pleased with how Bailei's Senior Session turned out.  I loved that we were able to photograph most of the session right on her family's farm.  I'm glad Bailei's Mama suggested the location.  This bright and beautiful young lady is attending university on a volleyball scholarship.  Isn't that so awesome?? 

I am just so thrill for the adventure you have ahead of you, Bailei!!  I pray that your presence will be a blessing to many others around you and that the Lord guides you every step of the way.  Thank you, Mama Beth, for giving me such a great opportunity of photographing your lovely daughter!!

Trying New Things I've always loved shooting in natural light and recently decided to try out studio lighting.  I am very happy with it!!  It will give me more control of my sessions when the Arkansas weather is being difficult.  After dinner and a nice warm bath I put my children to the test.  I feel very pleased.

Miss Adelyn | 13 Days New


I am in love with Adelyn's session.  She totally rocked the coral color.

Mr. Brody | 20 Days New This handsome guy melted my heart the moment I met him.  He is such an easy going fella and just went with the flow through his entire session.  It is not every day that you get a 20 days old baby into your studio that sleeps and lets you pose.  Brody is a true gentleman and has an amazing testimony already on his life.   

I am so thankful I had the privilege of photographing Brody's newborn session because his beautiful Mama and I know each other a while back.  Tammy and her family welcomed me into their home with opened arms and hearts when I was a new to America 17 years ago.  They showed me the love of Christ and truly blessed me through the years with youth group and church camps.  Brody's Grandma Darla even helmed my dress for me for Senior Prom.  I love that our lives reconnected by new life.  Thank you, Tammy and Brody, for being super awesome during your session!!  You are a newborn photographer's dream.  Love you guys!!

Miss Jayce I have admit, I have absolutely fallen in love with Newborn Photography.  I love every minute of the planning that goes into each session.  The conversations I had with the glowing and expecting Mom about her upcoming newborn session just give me so much joy and anticipation.  If I'm not already photographing her birth, I can hardly wait for her to let me know her precious one had safely arrived.  

I would like to introduce to you Miss Jayce.  She had a rough start as she was earth side, but she is one mighty warrior who had fully recovered and thriving!  Meeting her was such a precious time.  It blesses my heart as I see friends and family members showered her with so many loving words of hope and destiny.   She had brought them joy every since she arrived.  She made me go hug my babies (6 and 2) as soon as her parents walked out of my door because she reminded me how quickly they grow and are less dependent of me. 

I love every tiny detail of her newborn features!  I am thankful to be able to help capture these first weeks of life for her family to treasure forever.  I hope to watch her grow into a beautiful young lady she was called to be.  I pray the blessings of the Lord continue to be with her and every one she meets will know joy and love. 

Just had to share this quote I came across the other day.  I feel it fits perfectly for Miss Jayce's session: 
"Every child born into the world is a new thought of God, an ever-fresh and radiant possibility" - Kate Douglas Wiggin.

Stephensons' Christmas Mini Session First snow of the season just looked even better with this gorgeous family!!  I'm so thankful they braved the icy roads for their mini session.   I'll let the images speak for themselves. 

And of course...we have to have snow falling!  :-)

Winter Colors It is the first snow of the season!! It was so exciting for everyone, even me, and I'm not a cold natured person!!  It was freezing out so I bundled Isaac in 3 thick layers to go take a few photos I had in mind.  Our baby boy didn't care for the blistering cold so he asked to get back in the car as quick as possible.  Our daughter, on the other hand, would spend the entire day playing outside.

Miss Harper Sweet, creamy, newborn features.  They change so fast, especially the first few weeks while you're sleep deprived.

I Love Us

I had this bright idea of photographing our family with a camera remote control and when we finally had it all set up I learned that it didn't work.  However, the plan must go on!!!  I requested this last minute session knowing that I won't be to convince them again for a long time so I resorted to using my nifty "self-timer" and running in my heeled booths and hollering while Danner kept a firm grip on the 23 moth old!  It was a hilarious and exhausting session let me tell you!!  After a good 15 minutes of chasing Isaac down and getting everyone into place, we managed to capture a few good shots of our family of four!! 

Thank you to all my friends who keep their cool during their family sessions!!!  You sure made family portraits look easy for this photographer!!!
