Dominique and Cameron's Spring Fayetteville Engagement Portraits



Hey everybody!

Y'all I've met the SWEEEEEETEST couple! Dominique, who is a star runner on the U of A track team (she recent helped her relay team win nationals for the Hogs, and won the 3000 meters - y'all she's awesome!) recently got engaged at her National meet! (you can read the story on that here). My first impression of both Dominique and Cameron (who was also a member of the U of A track team) was how completely sweet and fun they were! That lasted throughout the session, which sprinted by. Haha... sprinted. Anyway...This darling couple is getting married near the bride's home town of Cape Town, South Africa this December. So fun, right?

Dom helped pick the spots for their session and chose places that were special to the couple, including the U of A track, Pratt Place (where they run a lot... see the horse shot below), and around Dickson and Campus.

Here are some of my favorites from this engagement session... But also guess what... they have another post coming tomorrow!















Talk to you soon,

Happy Birthday to My Momma!



Hey everybody!

Today is my mom's birthday! I don't know many people my age who are as thankful for their mom as I am.  Some of you know, but my mom drives down from Joplin every single week to spend time with Cece, and to help us stay caught up on life. She's a very giving person... selfless... and though I try to show her (by doing things like cooking her favorite food or taking her on little vacations, etc.) but it never equals how thankful I am, or how much she helps us out. I'm really thankful and appreciative of her!

Momma, I love you! Thank you for all you do!




Talk to you soon,

Watermelons and Messy Hair



Hey everybody!

Haha... how's that for that for a title?!  Here we go with day two of Bonnie's birthday week! We teamed up to do a fun video tutorial (see more on Bonnie's Blog) and so we did three shoots in one! Bonnie of course is a rockstar, so it was super easy!  Here are my favorite images from our sessions this month!

Bonnie's Birthday Week, Part 1



Hey everybody!

Mere and I are off to NYC with our best friend Bonnie this week... her birthday week!  And, since I have a bunch of shoots we've done of her that I haven't blogged, I thought I'd spend the next few days getting caught up and sharing these fab images with you! If you don't already follow Bonnie's Fashion Blog (well, fashion, hair, makeup, etc), it's time to start! This girl has a lot to share! We'll say a lot more nice things about her between now and Wednesday (her birthday!)

Oh, in these, Bonnie is wearing a super fun shirt from our friends at Arsenic & Lace - you also have to check them out!









Talk to you soon,

Laura Beth and Andy's El Dorado Wedding Story



Hey everybody!

So you have seen the gorgeous details and portraits of this amazingly sweet couple, but look at the progression of their perfect day! Laura Beth was the TOTAL opposite of a Bridezilla. Like, y'all, one of the most calm, cool and collected brides I've ever photographed. She was so sweet all day long, (even trekking through the wet golf course in her Manolos and Oscar de la Renta to get the perfect shot!) The church was beautiful with one of the most gorgeous arrangement of flowers I've ever seen. It even had cherry blossoms flown in from Washington D.C.! We love LB and Andy and we were so glad to be apart of their wedding day!



Rachel caught the excitement on LB's face RIGHT before the doors were opened and she walked to meet her groom! Pure joy!


LB and Andy saved their first look for this moment right here. Look at that sweeeeeet smile as he sees his bride in her dress for the FIRST time! Tears!


See that GORGEOUS floral arch?! Goodness!




Just announced as Mr. and Mrs. Matson! YAY!






Then all of her Chi-O sisters sang the Chi-O song together!




Such a fun pom leave! I love all the sparkles!


We love you two! Congratulations and we hope you enjoyed your amazing honeymoon in Belize!!
