My prayer for you this Christmas season is that you enjoy that extra piece of pie without guilt, you get a kiss under the mistletoe, you hug your family and friends extra tight, all your needs are met (and some of your wants, too!), that you look back on the past year with few regrets, and that you look forward to the new year with hope and optimism. But most of all, my prayer is that you know, deeply, truly, completely know the reason we celebrate Christmas - Jesus Christ stepped down from heaven to save a lost and broken world. Think about that. A lot. He left HEAVEN to come here. To save us. Out of love. Only His love could reach that far.
Merry Christmas.

Cari's Maternity

A couple weeks ago, I went to Northwest Arkansas to shoot my friends. :) How's that for an intro sentence?? Cari is due on Valentine's day, so I went to take her maternity photos, along with a few for their Christmas card. Of course, fun was had by all - I always have a blast with these two! And, we got some fun shots of baby Lincoln. Here are a few of my favorites!

Disclaimer: The house they are in front of is old, crusty, possibly haunted, and really cool for pictures, but most importantly, it's NOT Cory and Cari's. :)

Love you guys and can't wait to meet LMC!!!

Henry: Newborn

Let me introduce you to my new sweet friend - Henry Patton. He is a little over a week old and belongs to my dear friends Abby and Randall. I met him for the first time today, and beside holding him for, like, 7 hours, I got to take his newborn pictures. He was awake a little, but then fell asleep. While asleep, we turned, rolled, wrapped, scooted, and lots of other things and he never woke up! It was great. :) We got some super duper cute shots!!! Enjoy!

The below shot is my FAVORITE!!!!!!!!!!

Kelsey's Bridals

I am up way past my bedtime, but I wanted to get these blogged. :) I got lots of comments on Kelsey & Josh's engagement photos - "They look like such a fun couple!" or "I loved that bike! Such a cute idea!" Well, Kelsey's bridals are just as personal to her as her engagements. She has a way of doing that - making things her own. And I LOVE it! It makes my job easier, plus makes for some wonderful pictures!! Here are a few of my favorites!!!
