The fall flowers are blooming…this field is one of about 8 or 9…actually this particular one is a front yard. I pray every year they last until November and that they survive the mowers.

What a huge share of gorgeous work, Raye! Oh my. What an adorable little girlie and such great interaction you caught between siblings. I love these fields so much… my favorite flowers. Maybe I should plan our trip down there for fall instead of spring… hmmm… :)

I am thrilled for my client turned friend who is now a cancer-fighter. Kristina, you may remember her story on my blog, is now featured on the Susan G Komen for Arkansas blog. What great timing as October is Breast Cancer Awareness month. I am so proud of her.  Check out her interview.

It is never too early to get a mammogram if you do find a spot. I just went in fact this summer at 32 since both my mother and grandmother had it. I am excited to use this blog as a platform for awareness. Please take a minute to do a self breast check.


The Fall MINI session event that I hold each year will be October 23 & 24 and some proceeds will go to Susan G Komen foundation. All Saturday spots are now filled, but  few remain for Friday. If you cannot attend, but would like to give in honor of Kristina, just contact me and I can fill you in on how to do so.

Beautiful photo and a wonderful cause!

soon to be…

…each other’s best friend. I just know they will be… And how that time will come so fast. That time when mom will overhear them playing make believe or telling each other “I love you”.  It is so special to be able to photograph them together just starting out getting to know their friend for life.

These pictures are perfect! It is amazing how you capture the perfect shots and emotions. I can’t wait to see them all. My husband is not a fan of getting his pictures made so I am truly amazed that you got him to smile :). Thank you so much for taking the time to get us great family pictures that we can cherish for a lifetime!

Raye, your newborn sibling and family shots are amazing! I am always in awe of your talent.

We bundled this babe up for a few minutes outside my studio. I think he looks like a little caterpillar. And yes, those leaves are real… I can’t believe how big my tree made them this year?!
