Baby Penn - A Lifestyle Newborn Session

 

Y'all - I had the honor of hanging out with baby Penn and his awesome parents recently and can I just say that he is such a sweet little squish? Penn was born exactly 4 months after Finley (my baby boy) to the day! So I'm hopeful that they'll be pretty great buddies in the months ahead.

Spending a Saturday morning with Matt and Kelsey and their newest addition was a treat. They spent the quiet morning cuddling with Penn and sharing what their time has been like with him so far. Something they shared (and that I go to witness) is that this little guy loves to be held and cuddled. If he was ever put down, he knew it! Because of that, I'd confidently say that his love language is physical touch. Matt and Kelsey were also sure not to leave out their first "babies", so they had some family cuddle time with them, as well. 

Thank you for allowing me enter your home and spend time with you, Phillips family! Enjoy!

 

Quentin & Morgan - Fayetteville Wedding

 

I'm so excited to share some highlights from Quentin and Morgan's wedding day with y'all! These two had an outdoor ceremony atop Mount Sequoyah with a reception following at the Arkansas Air and Military Museum.

There were so many amazing details to this day with some of my favorites being Morgan tying her grandmothers' rings to her bouquet, Quentin & Morgan giving each other handwritten letters, and personalized napkins at the reception for guests to get to know the couple better. It was a day full of celebrating and I'm so glad I got to be a part of it! 

Congrats to the new Mr. and Mrs. Hendershot!

Thanks to all the amazing vendors involved with this beautiful day!

Brandon & Emily - Maternity

 

It seemed appropriate that my first session back from maternity leave would be a maternity session. While working with Brandon and Emily, I couldn't help but go back and think about all the emotions I had before Finley (my baby boy) arrived in April, just a couple months ago. It certainly made this session one that tugged on my heart strings!

The moment I met Brandon and Emily I knew that we were going to have a great time together! We hit it off right away. And the joy and anticipation they have for the arrival of their baby girl (who is coming in July!) is simply undeniable - you'll see for yourself in these photos!

Brandon and Emily, thank you for allowing me to capture this exciting season in your life! I can't wait for you to experience parenthood - it really is the best!

 

Styled Shoot at The Ballroom At I Street - Bentonville Wedding Photographer

 

I am so excited to be finally sharing this styled shoot with you! Abby with Turner & Co. Events informed me that she was setting up this shoot and asked if I'd like to be a part of it - and I'm so glad she did! 

Abby and her staff worked so hard to pull this shoot off and did an absolutely incredible job (along with all the other amazing vendors mention at the end of this post). It was especially a treat to be able to do this styled shoot at The Ballroom At I Street, a new venue in Rogers that is having its grand opening on November 15th! 

Thanks, Turner & Co. Events for allowing me to capture these images!

Enjoy!
