Jordan & Samuel chose to have an intimate wedding at Garrison Gardens in Texarkana, Arkansas. It was truly the perfect setting for this laid-back, quiet, down-to-earth couple. I won’t lie, with it being a December wedding outdoors… it was a tad bit cold. But thankfully, the sun came out and gave us warmth throughout the […]

Studio maternity session in Texarkana, Texas

For my sister’s studio maternity session in Texarkana — we knew we wanted a very fashion-forward feel. Kimberly is a brow stylist and a makeup artist in Texarkana, so glamorous things are naturally her “jam.” Our goal for this session was “Maternity photos… but make it Vogue.” 🖤 As we were planning for the shoot, […]

2022. Gosh, I don’t even know where to start with recapping this year. To be honest, I couldn’t really recap it if I tried. So instead, I’m taking more of a “lessons I’ve learned in business & faith” approach to this shin-dig. I’m sharing the hardest, *yet most beautiful* lessons I’ve learned from the toughest […]

Smart files are basically a revamped version of the “legacy files” that have been included in your Honeybook subscription. (They’re like the 2.0 version of legacy files.) In this blog post, I’m going […]

Cindy and Justin decided to have their wedding at Four Fifteen Estates, an absolutely stunning venue nestled in the woods of New Boston, TX. Cindy opted for timeless, simple greenery for decor, with black and gold details sprinkled throughout. It was an absolutely gorgeous September day. We had one of the prettiest sunsets peeking through […]

After running a photography business full-time for 7 years, I’ve learned a thing or two about what actually works, and what doesn’t. I’ve spent tens of thousands of dollars on things that do work, and have seen amazing results. Buuut… I’ve also spent tens of thousands of dollars on things I wish I didn’t, because […]

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 […]
