Dakota + Shania

Recently I did a session with this gorgeous couple in Rogers!  You may remember their session from a couple years ago or Shania’s senior session.  I always love working with these two and it was so fun getting to see them again!  Dakota, who is a firefighter in Lowell, even got out some of gear for some adorable photos at the end of the session!  Here are some of my favorites below!

Aaron & Chloe Tie The Knot

Early this summer I did a gorgeous engagement session in Rogers with this sweet couple.  A few weeks ago they tied the knot in a gorgeous ceremony at Mildred B Cooper Memorial Chapel in Bella Vista, Arkansas.  This glass chapel is always gorgeous and it was the perfect venue for their whimsical wedding!  Complete with handmade bouquets, lace footwraps, and an abundance of love, this day was simply perfect.  Congratulations to the new Mr & Mrs Rogers!

A Day To Remember

I honestly don’t even know how to put today in words, so let me start at the beginning.  There is a very special little boy in Northwest Arkansas named Leighton.  His journey was read and shared by thousands as his parents documented his story on CaringBridge and his story was also featured in Peekaboo Magazine.  I fully encourage you to get comfortable, grab a big box of tissues, and read about Leighton on the CaringBridge site, however if you can’t, I’d like to share a little bit about him and what made this day so special.  Leighton was born premature and with Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome (HLHS).  Having HLHS causes many problems on its own, and being a preemie only added to this.  Leighton is quite the fighter and pulled through, however his heart was failing and he ended up needing a new heart.  On February 5th, 2009, sweet baby Omar gained his wings.  Omar’s family decided to donate his organs and because of that choice, Leighton got a chance to live.  Today, Omar’s dad got to meet Leighton and see and hear his son’s heart beating in Leighton’s chest.  It was very emotional and I cried all the way home from the hospital.  It was an absolutely beautiful moment and I wanted to share it with all of you.  I hope this sweet moment warms your heart tonight.

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!

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!

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!
