Worst Blogger Ever

I am seriously the worst blogger ever! It takes me a minimum of 6 months to post anything new.

It's been a busy year. I've photographed a few weddings and a few babies, but for now I just want to share some shots of the snow that blasted through Texas. My daughter has been having loads of fun throwing snowballs, making snowmen, and sledding (and by sledding, I actually mean me pulling her on a trashcan lid because that's just what we do in Texas).

What is this?

Senior 2011

Am I a slacker or what? It seems like this blog only gets updated every 6 months. Anyways, I've been doing a little shooting lately... with my camera, of course. I just finished a session with a senior from Arkansas High. Most of these photos were taken in downtown Texarkana. I will be offering a "Last Minute Senior Special" for those 2011 seniors who are slackers, like myself. Email me for details at!

Sometimes, Life Gets In The Way...

My first year teaching has been overwhelming... I love the kids, but it's crazy! I'm taking an Arkansas History course and preparing for my Praxis 3 this semester, and on top of that our school went through a scholastic audit, an ACSIP review and an IB authorization this year. Let's just say it was a rough year even for the seasoned veterans. I'm looking forward to next year. It should be a little less hectic.

For all of you who have tried to contact me and it took me weeks to get back to you, I'm sorry. I will be booking weddings this summer but not until after my Praxis 3 assessment on April 6th, and I will only be booking a limited number of weddings this year.

I did manage to get out this week and do some spring pictures of a few lil cuties, including my own. Thank goodness for spring break!

Halloween Mini Sessions!

It's that time of year! I'll be booking a limited number of halloween mini sessions for $100. They include a disk of 10-15 images. All sessions will be on-location (your home or a local park/public area). Sessions will last between 30-45 minutes and can include one clothing change.

Pumpkin patches make great locations!

Oh, so busy!

I have been seriously neglecting my blog... and pretty much everything else, too. I absolutely love my new job teaching 5th grade science. It's crazy and stressful - but at the end of the day, I feel like I've done something good. It just doesn't leave me much free time right now.

Anyways, things have been busy. I had a session a few weeks ago with 2 adorable little guys.


My beautiful cousin came to visit with her husband and precious son last month. I snagged a few family pictures and managed to step in some dog poo. Never a dull moment!

I've also been busy with miss Riley. She started ballet last month and loves it. She is quite possibly the cutest ballerina ever! (That's her on the right in the picture below).


So, please forgive me for being MIA. I probably won't be around much until this summer, when I'll have 9 glorious weeks off from work!

Another Brick in the Wall

Here's a little peek at a senior session from, well, a while back. This is the lovely Krista. We met in downtown Texarkana for her session. Downtown is my favorite location for senior pictures around here. Congrats to Krista on her graduation!

*And a little note for all of you 2010 seniors... don't wait until next summer for your photos! Book your sessions now!

Back to School

I better get my pencils sharpened...

Sharpened and Ready

because I'm heading back to school! I'm super-duper excited to announce that after two [frustrating] years of trying to land a teaching position... I finally did it! I'm now a science teacher with the Texarkana Arkansas School District.

I'm really excited about working with the kids and all of the fun activities I have planned. I'm also excited about having more time for my daughter... two weeks at Christmas, spring break, and two months in the summer.

This also means that I'll have more time for my photography! I'm planning to really launch my wedding business next year. I got my feet wet in 2009 and had a fantastic time with all of my brides. I have some awesome ideas for next year and I can't wait to see what the future holds.

Jarah & Steven

I had so much fun shooting Jarah and Steven's wedding! I've known Jarah since she was about 13 years old and we were both showing cows in FFA. Who would have thought more than 10 years later I would be photographing one of the most important days of her life?

Their wedding was at the Hendrix Ranch in DeQueen, Arkansas. The chapel there is absolutely stunning! It was one of the most beautiful locations I've ever seen. I'm so honored that Jarah chose me to capture such a special event for her.

Congrats to the happy couple!

Falling Behind!

I was doing so well, but now I'm falling behind, and not just on my blogging, but on everything. Between work (my 9-5'er), weddings, job hunting (because I don't like my 9-5'er) and Riley... there just aren't enough hours in the day.

Here's a wedding a did a few weeks ago. These guys & gals were a lot of fun! Lots of energy, and aside from a couple of whiney groomsmen, they were up for anything. Congrats to Amiee & Ryan!
