Fayetteville, AR Newborn Photographer | ‘Little’ Britton

And when I say little, I mean not. Well, sure, little compared to you or I, but at 9 pounds and 2 ounces, she’s a pretty big girl. Or as her daddy said, ‘She came out a toddler.’ However big she is, she sure is cute.

Fort Smith Arkansas Senior Photographer | Robyn – Part II

And now for part II of Robyn’s Senior Portrait Session. When I asked her if she wanted to be a guinea pig for some new stuff I had been wanting to try, I had lighting in mind. Lots of lighting.  Maybe you remember this session, it helped me see where I wanted to go with

Bryant Arkansas Senior Photographer | Robyn – Part I

This session was a bit different for a few reasons. First, Robyn and her mom drove all the way from Bryant, Arkansas for her senior portraits. Second, they brought Robyn’s aunt along (not a big deal, just hadn’t happened before).  And third, I was photographed while I was photographing.  See, Robyn’s mom and aunt are

Fort Smith Maternity Photographer | Destiny’s Fashion Session

So, this wasn’t exactly your typical maternity session for about three reasons… Destiny said she was looking for something different, so she chose me to see what I could come up with; I was looking to do something different with some maternity portraits (I was thinking something with light); She showed up to her maternity

Like from North Carolina!! Well, maybe they were visiting someone in Bella Vista, but we’re gonna pretend anyway. This little lady was perfectly at home in front of the camera.

Arkansas Family Photographer | Family of 5…

I’ve photographed this great family multiple times now. And after a rain cancellation (that ended up being a beautiful day after the measly 5 minute downpour) we were able to reschedule and the day turned out great. Luckily we scheduled it before all this 100 degree 99% humidity stuff got into full swing. Anyway, on

It almost didn’t happen, but we worked it out

Greenwood, AR Wedding Photographer | Robby & Jackie

So I guess I’ll try something a little different today. I’ve been wanting to play around with the video capabilities on my camera, but since I’m the only one shooting at a session, or in this case wedding, it’s hard to get the shots needed and get video. But, with Robby and Jackie’s wedding last
