I am a military wife and mother to three wonderfully sweet, rambunctious, loving children. I am a small town girl with small town values.

I love God. He truly has seen us through some difficult times. I know he will continue to do so if we keep our faith and let him be in control.

I think I am funny. Sometimes my husband does not.... He says I have a very dry sense of humor. I think he's right. If I seem mad, I'm probably not. I'm probably joking or zoning out!

My kids are my pride and joy. They keep me on my toes and knee deep in laundry. They are 2, 4, and 6.

 

Our youngest, Aly, has a rare type of scoliosis. We travel to Cincinnati, Ohio for treatment every couple of months. It's usually on Mondays/Tuesdays so we are back and ready to go by the weekend! We found her scoliosis at 9 months old when it was already over 55 degrees. She's currently in the mid-40's out of cast, and high teens to low 20's in it. She one tough little girl with a spunky spirit!

 

 

 

 

We were blessed with a boy in the middle of our girls. Matt is ALL boy! He doesn't have an off button or a slow down button. If he's awake, he's full throttle! He's a mess, but he is totally fun and completely rotten, and no one messes with his sisters!! haha

 

Our oldest, Shayla, loves to dance and sing. She's a girly girl who loves all things pretty! She started school this year and is loving it! She's a loving and amazing big sister. She's all the time helping with Aly and Matt and making sure everyone is taken care of. She definitely makes us proud!

I make it a point to make sure my clients are taken care of whether it's picking up food between locations, picking up extra items at shoots or weddings like tarps, shop lights, etc., providing comedic relief (mind you I am not the funny one... That is my husband!), or jumping through hoops to make sure they have what they need to make their shoot or wedding is everything they want it to be. We are here to help and make sure your wedding photos or shoot turns out like it you want it to. We have shown up to weddings three photographers deep because we felt it best served our client to have the additional shooter. We usually shoot with two, but if the situation calls for it, we call in a third! I never rush through anything because of the time. I do not stack things so that I have to rush clients. If it takes a little bit longer, it takes a little longer. If it doesn't, great! I feel the personal service means more than parading clients through so quickly you barely know their names, not that I'm real great with names, but I try!!

I love what I do and pride myself on my work. Contrary to most photographers now, I took photojournalism classes at Arkansas State University. I have an Interdisciplinary Studies degree from there with one focus being photojournalism. I shoot on location with my portable lighting system to ensure the photographs I take come out how my clients want and how I plan.

That being said, please take a stroll through the galleries. After giving us a look, head on over to the contact page and send us a message! We would love to hear from you!
