back from “sunny” Seattle WA . travel sessions

Last week I flew out to Seattle, WA.  I must have prayed hard enough because the rain stayed away for the family sessions I had set up. The first family I photographed actually drove down from Vancouver, Canada and the mommy happens to also be a photographer and I think I had her laughing at the fact that I was worried about the cold/wind at our session (I had just left 95 degree fall Arkansas weather).

A big thank you to Melissa Corcoran for providing the location. A peek of her session from the next day is already on facebook and I hope to post more about that and the trip next.

Also a quick note: My 2010 year is almost full for any additional family sessions. Actually it is full, but will be adding a few more newborn sessions for mornings.

Seeing “my location” through your lens is such a treat. You, my friend, are so inspiring and amazing. Yes, you have heard that all before, I know. But honestly, just being able to see you do what you do so well was a dream come true. Jenn, you must be over the moon for these. Simply gorgeous in every single way.

You are amazing Raye! Seeing you in action was one of the best experiences…so inspiring. I’m still pinching (“peenching”) myself. You are just as gorgeous inside and out as your images. Jenn, your family is simply beautiful!!!

OOOO! Gorgeous. Great find Melissa! Favorite is the one thru the door window. So lovely, so serene! Can not wait to see Mel’s pics, too. I think I would drive from Canada, too! I know I would!

So absolutely amazing Raye!!! I love how you incorporated the scenery into your gallery here- I feel like I was right there with you! What a beautiful family and I LOVE this sweet sibling pic!!

Totally dreamy, Raye. I bet it was a real treat to photograph in the beautiful NW with such a gorgeous family! I love the whole set!

So, so, so beautiful Raye! Your compositions are wonderful! You never disappoint!!

Beautiful, beautiful setting. I love that last shot.

Gorgeous location made perfect by an amazing photographer. Thank you so much for capturing these beautiful images of me and my family.

Gracie cut her first tooth today which explains the lack of smiles on the weekend. And I was only laughing a little bit about you and our freezing weather….. :)

Gorgeous……love your work Raye!

Sooooo beautiful, Raye.

Simply stunning. That location is so amazing with the gorgeous textures and the light was so pretty there. What a super lucky family to have you capture them on this day.

i’m SO enjoying being on your blog!! and feeling so inspired too.!!! just lovely!!

summer family photography . northwest arkansas and oklahoma

Our summer came and went with a blink of an eye. Many gorgeous families, many gorgeous experiences filled those three months. As we enter into wonderment of fall and everything that my heart loves about autumn in Arkansas, I realize that my schedule is almost FULL for the remainder of the year 2010.

Email the studio now to reserve one of the few remaining spots.

To obtain prints guaranteed to be here before the holidays, sessions must take place before the 2nd week of November. So….enjoy the nice weather that should be coming and think of what you want to remember of 2010. Have you captured that yet?

As I share this video of one of my favorite sessions I photographed this summer in the flower fields, I am reminding myself that I have many, many, many images and moments to be blogging about soon.

hint: The video is very large…but worth the wait. You may want to hit “pause” and let it load for a few minutes before playing :)

Before leaving for Canada earlier this month (more on that trip to come), I  got a chance to see an image I shot for Mothering Magazine‘s baby wearing article in the July-August 2010 issue.

Congrats to Grissa and Will for making both the table of contents and a full page image at the beginning of the article.

a girl and her curl .. Russellville AR baby photographer

There are about 12 to 14 sessions I would love to blog…until then, you can view their peeks on the facebook page – see banner on sidebar.

I have one last newborn session this morning before heading off to Halifax, Canada to meet and photograph a long-awaited little boy. I should be able to check email, but the studio will be closed until July 8th.

Until then, here is a gorgeous baby girl from Russellville, Arkansas who I had the pleasure of photographing outdoors in one of my many summer wildflower fields.
