Halloween Is Almost Here!

Can you believe that Halloween is just a little over 2 weeks away?!  Where has the time gone this year?  I wanted to take a moment to share a couple of the photos I took of my kiddos in their Halloween costumes!  Our two boys are going to be a firefighter and a dalmatian and our daughter is going to be a unicorn.  I snapped a couple photos of each of them yesterday while we had such nice weather!

Firefighter Costume: Pottery Barn Kids

Dalmatian Costume: Carter’s

Unicorn Costume: Carter’s

Cake Smash With Baby C!

A few days ago I got to spend the afternoon with this handsome little dude while we celebrated his first Birthday!  This little guy totally loved his cake (and ate almost the entire thing by himself)!  I had so much fun with him! I can’t believe how fast he has grown!  Happy Birthday little dude!

Dance With KDA

I wanted to take a quick second to let you all know that Kaleidoscope Dance Academy in Bentonville, Arkansas is now enrolling for their 2017-2018 season!  My daughter took summer classes here and is continuing on this fall as well.  Ms Laine is so loving and patient with my daughter Cora (some days this is not easy as she can be quite fiery and tempestuous) and you can always tell the absolute love and joy she has for dance.  We absolutely love Laine and KDA!  Head over to their website or their Facebook page for more info!  See you at dance class!

Walter Family

You may remember the gorgeous Walter couple from their beautiful fall wedding a couple years ago.  Recently I got to photograph them again and meet their newest little addition (who very well may be the cutest thing on the planet)!  This little family is just so sweet and I was so blessed to be able to spend some time with them!  I hope you enjoy some of my favorites below!

Spring Family Session

This beautiful family was visiting Northwest Arkansas from Illinois and wanted to do a family session while they were here!  I had so much fun with them and their sweet girl!!  We took a walk around some of the gardens near Bentonville Square and got some gorgeous Springtime photos!  Here are some of my favorites!  I can’t wait to work with them again.

Tea Party Minis – Spring 2017

We recently did some adorable Tea Party Mini Sessions that were just gorgeous!  These mini sessions were just lovely and perfect for Spring!  Lace, tea cups, crowns, a big teddy bear, a rocking horse, flowers, floppy hats, and pearls…. This session was just perfect!  I can’t wait to do more of these!  Check out some of my favorites below!

Welcome Landon Dean

We are very happy to announce the birth of our third child, Landon Dean Rea!  I took this photo about 10 seconds after pushing him out and I am so in love with how it came out!  We had a birth photographer there (Amanda from Free Dove Photography – she is awesome!!) but this one just brings me to tears.  As you mommas know, this moment, the moment right after birth when you see your baby for the first time, is easily lost in the sleepless nights and hectic first days home.  I am so thankful to have been able to capture this moment from my perspective.  Huge thank you to Dr Hugh Donnell and the entire Mercy staff for helping us welcome our newest addition!  Have a Merry Christmas everyone!  I’ll be back in February.
