Courtney | Senior Photo Session Part 2

Okay, I'm getting a little carried away now but can you blame me?

This is a second posting of Courtney's senior photo session just before Thanksgiving. I wanted to post more of my favorite images. As you can tell, her blue eyes stole the show! Her mother told me that she never knew her eyes were that blue. Hilarious!

Krista | Senior Photo Session

Seniors, seniors and more seniors. Am I complaining? Heck no! I love it and and I love keeping busy. Actually, this is a second in a series of photos from Krista's senior session a couple of months back. Click here to view images from the first posting. She took some awesome images and was easy to photograph. Not to mention her captivating smile. I can't even remember what I was doing when I was a senior but that isn't and shouldn't be a topic of discussion either. LOL!

Until next time...

Craig | Senior Photo Session

You know how the infamous song goes by the Black Eyed Peas, "I Gotta Feeling"? Well Craig is pretty confident about his senior year and confident that this is going to be his year to shine. Other than being the next high school football jock, he has big dreams to accomplish the world. Above and below are a few of my favorites.

Kappa Alpha Psi Winter Ball | Featuring DJ Kid Capri

The brothers of Kappa Alpha Psi of Northwest Arkansas held their annual Kappa Ball Saturday evening. Over 300 people attended this spectacular fundraising event. Most of you all know DJ Kid Capri from the hit stand-up comedy show, Def Comedy Jam (A Russell Simmons production). Well, Kid Capri held up to his reputation and let Northwest Arkansas (NWA) know why he holds the best DJ recognition in the country. It was good to see him up close and personal and in action. All I can say is that the music was loud and I'm sure the hotel guests at the Embassy Suites and the John Q. Hammons Convention Center heard all the music.

Thanks Adrian and the Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity for allowing us the opportunity to be your official photograher.

Local Bride Brags About Her Wedding

I get tickled silly when I see the brides I photograph brag about their wedding not only to their friends and family but mostly to general public.

Sara and James recently got married in late October (actually my last wedding of 2010). Sara sent me a note letting me know that she is a fan/follower of the Whispering Pines Things for the Weddings BLOG and that several images from her wedding and our BLOG were posted on this wonderful site. The BLOG features real weddings and DIY projects for your wedding. Sara and James wedding photos really popped! Take a look at the link and grab some ideas from Sara and other brides in bringing your dream wedding to life.

New Addition To The Family | Meet Lucas

My good friends Brandon and Shelley gave birth to their second child, Lucas, a few days ago. Between Brandon, Shelley and Jackson, he will be smothered with lots of love and attention. I was very impressed to see his big brother helping out around the house, washing bottles, and helping with changing diapers. I am so happy for both of them but I don't miss those sleepless nights in the beginning weeks. LOL!

Congratulations to the three of you on your new addition to the family.

Brandon + Shelley Maternity Session

Being afforded the pleasure of photographing a maternity session is one of those joys that makes me always appreciate the simple things in life. No matter what you are going through, the only thing that comes to mind is that this bundle of joy is going to come into this world, wanting love, desiring only your love and attention. OH MY! Brandon and Shelley are dear friends of mine who graced the studio this weekend for their second maternity session. Their first session occurred a couple of years ago with their son, Jackson. After Jackson was born, they scheduled a home session three days after he was born. One of the those photos have become one of our signature images in our gallery. Shelley is nearly due in a couple of weeks and the entire family can't wait. I wish you all a blessed child birth.

These are some of my favorites. Brandon and Shelley, these are only a few; there is more to come.

Courtney Senior Session

Kansas gotta meet one of the hottest young ladies in the area. Meet Miss Courtney. She's my neighbor and and she wanted me to take her 2011 senior pictures. Two years ago I took her brother, Dustin, senior pics. Courtney was easy to photograph; she has a gorgeous smile and a wonderful personality. Everything came easy for her. You can tell a lot by a persons eyes and her blue eyes will steal any heart. Courtney has big career dreams and I have no doubt that she will achieve all of her goals. Congratulations Courtney and I wish you the best.
