Intimate Wedding at Mildred B. Cooper Chapel

Mr & Mrs Moreno tied the knot in a sweet intimate ceremony at the Mildred B. Cooper Memorial Chapel in Bella Vista, Arkansas recently.  Their wedding was hillarious, featuring, you heard it, a comedian as their minister.  Local comedian Raj Suresh had us all laughing hysterically as he married this beautiful couple, and the entire day was just full of joy and love.  During their lovely reception at Cedaridge in Bentonville, the new Mr & Mrs got to find out that their sweet bundle of joy is a GIRL!  All around this was a beautiful wedding that will definitely be one to remember!  I hope you enjoy some of my favorite photos from their sweet day!  Congratulations to the happy couple on their marriage and their darling baby girl!

Grunge Engagement Session on Dickson Street

Recently I did an unconventional engagement session with this sweet couple!  We had so much fun walking around in Downtown Fayetteville!  The grunge look was so perfect for them and I absolutely loved getting to know them during our session.  We took a walk around Dickson Street to embrace their unique punk rock style and the result was amazing!  I absolutely can’t wait for their wedding (which will be just as awesome) this October!

Tanyard Creek Engagement Session

You may remember the gorgeous Fall engagement session I did with Brianna and Jared at Lake Atlanta last year.  Well we went out to Tanyard Creek in Bella Vista, Arkansas and did a few more so that we could capture the beautiful warmth of Summer too!  This session was natural and all around lovely!  They wanted to do something a bit unconventional for this session (since they did more of a posed style late time), so we decided to do the entire thing in the creek.  I absolutely love how they blended two very different looks in their sessions to create an overall picture of their many different sides!  I absolutely can’t wait for their wedding this October!  In the meantime, I hope you enjoy some of my favorites from their Summertime engagement session in the creek!

Little Miss Kaylie

I had so much fun with this gorgeous girl recently!  We got to head out to Creekwood Gardens and take some gorgeous Birthday photos (complete with some awesome props from Somthin Borrowed)!  Tulle, princess dresses, a gorgeous creek… This session was just lovely!  I can’t believe how fast this sweet girl is growing up!  I can’t wait to edit the rest of these photos!

*If you haven’t seen the gorgeous family session I did with her family a couple years ago, make sure to check it out!

Fantasmic Birthday Party

This year for my son’s Birthday he wanted to do a Fantasmic theme!  I knew that this would be a challenge, since there aren’t any Fantasmic (or even Fantasia, which is similar) themed party supplies or anything.  I took a bit of research, craftiness, and lots of imagination, but we pulled it off!  We got the Sorcerer Mickey robe from Etsy.  I made the cups from a red solo cup, gold ribbon/rope (tied into a bow and hot glued to the cup), and some paper straws I found on Etsy.  The cake was made by the insanely talented Nichole Hamm (if you haven’t seen the Vincent Van Gogh Starry Night cake she made, make sure to check it out here!), the star toppers were from Etsy, the glitter number 6 was from Hobby Lobby, the confetti was a custom order from this Etsy shop, the plates were ordered from Meri Meri. and everything else was purchased either at Disney World (some of it through the Shop Disney Parks app) or Party City for the generic party stuff.

I love planning parties and this was a blast for me!  Below are some photos of the decor and one of the portraits I did of my son for the party.  In the words of Sorcerer Mickey, “Some imagination, huh?”

Murillo Family – Mikayla Turns 6!

Recently I did a big session with the sweet Murillo family!  We did family photos, mommy and me photos, Birthday photos, and photos of Mikayla in her momma’s wedding dress (see the blog post from that portion of the session here).  This session was so much fun!  I always love photographing this family!  I did photos for Christmas with them a couple years ago and also photos for Kayla’s 3rd Birthday in 2014!  I hope you enjoy some of my favorites from this sweet session!

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!
