I’m finally getting around to sharing Josie & Tyler’s Parisian-inspired engagement session in Arkansas! I actually took these last year in a pecan orchard near DeQueen. This session was SO much fun. The pecan orchard was simply STUNNING. There were hundreds upon hundreds of over 100-year-old pecan trees in the orchard. It felt like a […]

Katie is actually from Texarkana, but due to the limited availability of “modern, classy” locations for bridals there, we decided on a downtown Little Rock, Arkansas bridal session. It turned out absolutely perfect. Her wedding style was both romantic and classic, so The Capitol ended up being the perfect backdrop to allow her style to […]

Kimberly and Brandon decided on a golden hour pregnancy announcement photo session in Texarkana, and it couldn’t have been more perfect. The weather, their outfits, the ultrasound… it all just got me. 😭 These two are dear to my heart for more reasons than I can even count. It’s much too long of a story […]

Justin and Cindy chose to do their engagement session at White Rock Mountain in Arkansas, and I couldn’t have been more stoked! This place is BEAUTIFUL. The main overlook is actually only a short walk away from where you park, and the views are absolutely stunning. You’ll see. 😉             […]

Katie & Tyler exchanged vows on the summer evening of June 25th at Tree Haven; a modern, white barn-style venue nestled away in the woods in Simms, Texas.

When Josie reached out about booking her bridal session with me, I knew we had to do something different. Josie’s a modern, romantic, classic kinda bride. She didn’t want anything super “southern.” (Barns just aren’t her thing.) She wanted something romantic and “old-world” feeling, but with a touch of modern flair. Turns out, this Moss […]

From the moment Josie filled out my contact form, I just *knew* this Four Fifteen Estates wedding would be a perfect fit. She was her own wedding planner, as a lot of brides are — but because of her impeccable taste and attention to detail, I was already in “wedding photographer heaven” from the get-go. […]

Taylor and Blake reached out about doing a couples session in Texarkana with me last year, so this session has been a long time coming! However, when they originally reached out, Taylor *wasn’t* pregnant. But by the time the session came, she was! Surprise, right!? Therefore, we incorporated some fun shots of their ultrasound towards […]

I’m sure you’ve heard time and time again about the benefits of having a CRM (client relationship manager) for your photography business. In fact, that’s probably what’s landed you here. You may be interested in using Honeybook as your CRM, but the kicker is; setting it up and actually using it high-key stresses you out.  […]
