We did it! We finally did it! Our sweet family of 5 packed up and moved from sunny California to breathtaking Arkansas. God stirred our hearts late last year about the city of Conway and we fell in love. We bought a home and haven't stopped exploring the areas. Our kids have the best schools in Greenbrier and we couldn't be happier! We're grateful for the chance to live in such a wonderful place. Did i mention that 14 other families from California joined us in this cross country move? Ya! We got to move with the support of a strong community around us. In my opinion, thats the best way to do it. One of the reasons we moved this way was to help pioneer an on line ministry called Revere Network, where we dive into deep biblical topics through the lens of God's unmerited Grace. As well as, helping our friends plant a church in Quitman! And let me not forget to mention that coming to Arkansas I was nervous about not having a Costco or Trader Joe's nearby, but guess what... they are only 40 min away in Little Rock! That has been a huge lifesaver for this family.
with that said, I am going to be building up my photography business here in Arkansas! I took a much needed break during the move and now I am ready to get back behind the camera and build a new clientele! Thank you to everyone who has supported me for all these years. Here is to a new adventure!
Congratulations to Samantha and her man on their recent engagement! This was a beautiful sunset Engagement Session in Yucaipa, CA bordering Oak Glen! Having pictures to remember your engagement is a MUST! They were both absolutely glowing and so deeply in love. I love Couple Photography! Sweet moments captured between two people in love.
I was thrilled when my good friend Sam asked me to do a SURPRISE photoshoot with his 1 month old baby boy, Asher! This was a surprise for his wife. After the session we could hardly wait for her to see them. It took a lot of self control to not give her a sneak peek!
Father and son photoshoots are, of course, so special and precious! Especially for a first time daddy. Baby boy did so great and all the photos came out so sweet! These are all done Lifestyle, which means- very little posing, but more in the true life moments.
Look at these stunning ladies!
Mosaic Salon in Las Vegas has an incredible boutique with all the cutest an classiest new clothing. I was excited to take photos of the models in all the cute clothes!
Michelle Kaiser, Mosaic Salon's owner hired me to drive down from Beaumont, CA and photograph her models in their new arrivals! All the photos will be used to go on to their social media platforms- Soul Lover Clothing. Check them out! Everything is new and trending!
Kambria and her girls packed up from Arizona and headed to the beautiful Palm Springs California to celebrate her bachelorette party! What better way to remember this amazing weekend than with photos! Let's be honest, the champagne and tequila body shots might impair your ability to remember... just a little ;)
This was such an awesome group of ladies! We had a blast. The girls rented a newly renovated very modern home with all the trendy and cute fixtures.
They had a few fun inflatable pool toys and a champagne piñata! We were pushed up against the beautiful Palm Springs mountains!
It was Picture Perfect!
Every Photographer and Parent knows that it isn't always a simple or easy task to get pictures of a baby! I mean come on, we are dealing with hungry (every 2 hours), Tired (every 2 hours) and poopy (every 2 minutes...). There are so many things to juggle on picture day for parents with a baby. None the less, capturing the in between moments on a photograph that will last forever is... well, necessary! Very Important!
I still look at pictures of my kids, and I see the expressions that only parents see... you know, the quick little looks from the baby that remind you of your dad or a relative that you hold dear. The little looks that take your breath away and remind you of the gift you have been given.
This session is EXTRA special to me because it is of my beautiful sister and OUT OF THIS world gorgeous niece Londynn Lou!! What an amazing journey to watch your sister become a mom, nothing like it. I'm so proud of her!
We used 123 Farm in Beaumont for this session. It seems like the lighting is always JUST right whenever I am there. They have the largest Organic lavender farm in So Cal!
Meet the Coulson Family! We met this incredible family last November and got to do their Family Pictures! A grand total of 9 children and 8 adults, that totals 17 people all together! What a joy it was to hear all the stories and laughter from this bunch.
This session was done at IronWood Park in Palm Desert, CA. One of my favorite locations for family Photos. There is a great combination of green and desert. If you live in the Coachella Valley, you know that it can be hard to find any greenery!
So grateful to have met and worked with such a wonderful family!
