A Glance at 2018

A lot can happen in a year. This year was rather exciting for me. A few of my highlights included moving to Little Rock, meeting and photographing a lot of wonderful people, shooting a wedding in Iceland, and some other things that I can only tease about for now. :) I tend to always look on the bright side of things, but looking back at these favorite photos from 2018, I can’t help but feel blessed.

Thanks for being here and following along! Cheers to another amazing year. :)

Little Rock Lifestyle Anniversary Portraits

There’s something special about seeing connection in a photograph. While love at times feels as real as gravity and as tangible as the dirt we walk on, it can also be extremely difficult to explain; a depth almost impossible to describe.

Not everyone wears their love like a colorful jacket, and that’s just fine, but I’ve realized that I find most joy in photography through peeling away the layers to help truly describe their cares, joys, sorrows, and anything that tells a piece of the story of a person’s intangible inner being. A picture can be beautiful and inspire awe, but I believe that these are the things that really add value to a photograph.

That’s maybe a strange introduction to Kayla and Corbin’s 5 year anniversary session, but it’ll do. These two are so full of joy and are such inspiring people which made doing their portraits that much more exciting. For this anniversary, Corbin and Kayla wanted the pictures to revolve around their morning routine of making coffee, hanging with the cat-oes, and listening to music. Oh yeah and you can’t forget to have an impromptu dance party either. :) 

St. Mary’s Church Wedding in Hot Springs

I’m so excited to share this wedding! Mary and Joe are some of the sweetest people to work with. They’re kind, full of love for life and each other, and quite the singer/dancer duo. :) The ceremony was at the pretty downtown St. Mary’s of the Springs church in Hot Springs with the reception following held at one of my favorite venues in Hot Springs, the Hamp Williams building.

This day started out with friends laughing together and finished up with friends and family dancing, laughing, and singing together. It was quite a wonderful time indeed.
