Newborn Portraits for Cruz



Hey everybody!

Brooke and Ryan are already the coolest parents on the block.  That came as no surprise to me... they're easily two of my coolest friends!  Cruz was born just over a month ago and I recently got to go see his room and meet the little dude... and man is he handsome!  I brought my camera and shot some portraits of him, and with the family.  Here are some of my favorites from the session.  Congrats, fam! XO


I wanted to get one of his crib bc c'mon... how cute!


Hey pretty eyes...


Love this family so much...


... because of this photo. Haha Ryan you're the best.




Talk to you soon,
Dale

Ballroom at I Street Wedding for Bethany + Chase



Hey everybody!

One of my very favorite new wedding venues in NWA over the past couple years has been the GORGEOUS Ballroom at I Street in Bentonville. The staff there is wonderful, the chandeliers are breathtaking, and I love the updates they've made to the outdoor area. I was so happy when Bethany and Chase said they were going to get married here... having everything centrally located like this is super convenient and put me at the most ease while I photographed each of them getting ready and all their gorgeous wedding details.

Have a look at their wedding images, which happened on the most beautiful spring day (you never know what the weather will be this time of year... AMIRIGHT?)







Talk to you soon,

Helen Strickland's Fashion Fitness Portraits



Hey everybody!

Northwest Arkansas is killing it with all this fashion! Recently I got to sit down with my friend Helen Strickland over brunch and catch up after our fitness fashion shoot. Okay, so only part of it was fitness fashion... the rest was more like blogger style. That's not important... what IS important is what we chatted about over mimosas at Pressroom in Bentonville. Helen has been booking speaking engagements across the country sharing her story (you should follow her on insta for deets). This particular weekend she had an engagement with a local sorority house and went over her points with me... I loved hearing how her story has shaped who she is and what her message has become for young women everywhere. Okay... have a peek at our shoot :)





Talk to you soon,

Southwind Hills Wedding of Tabrina and Andy



Hey everybody!

When one of your high school best friends gets married, you're thankful to be invited.  To be asked to be the one to photograph it so 1) all the world can see and 2) you can let them have a lifetime of memories captured... you're straight up honored. That's exactly how I felt photographing Tabrina and Andy's wedding at Southwind Hills near Oklahoma City.  The venue was stunning and the staff were legit professionals, which allowed the wedding day to run smoothly and efficiently.

























Talk to you soon,
