Hermitage, AR Maternity Session: Kasey and Jacob

Taking photos of these two is always fun and there are plenty of laughs to go around. That was the case last night when we met for their maternity session.   I know some of you will remember about two years ago when I put out a model call for a couple that hadn’t been married long. Kasey responded and I first got to know them then. I was excited for the both of them when I found out that they were going to have a baby.

The weather wasn’t bad, especially in the shade.  One might even call it pleasant.  Where I live there are plenty of fields so I suggested that first.  After, we headed to the lake.  I knew I wanted to get some sunset shots so let me say, that trying to get to the lake and making sure we didn’t miss it was more stressful than a wedding.  Seriously.  But in the end we got them!  And I love them!

Jacob and Kasey your baby boy is so blessed to have you as parents and  you are going to be fantastic parents.  Congrats you guys!

When I can bring natural light and laughs together, it’s always going to be a great combination.

Pure sweetness.  I didn’t even Jacob any instruction here.  I looked up and this was happening.  It’s absolutely true love!

Monticello, AR Engagement Session: Walter and Brandie

I go to an amazing church. When I walked in the doors for the first time, I felt like I was home. Along with that came a great church family. These are some of the best people you could ever meet. I truly love them like I love my own family. Sometimes I get to work with people that go to my church. Not long ago, I got a message from Brandie asking about engagement sessions. We emailed back and forth a couple of times and after discussing it with Walter, they decided they would have me take their engagement photos. I love engagement sessions and I love getting to work with new people. It’s a perk of the job.  I’ve said it before.
When we all got to meet in person the day of the session, both Brandie and Walter had huge smiles on their faces. The day was beautiful, but a little windy. The laughed easily and it was infectious. We had a fantastic time. I could tell by the way they looked at each other that they are in love. It’s almost tangible. It was very easy to get good photos of this couple because I really didn’t have to tell them to do anything. They were themselves and it was truly a pleasure to work with them.
Walter and Brandie, I wish you the best and many years of wedded bliss.

The day was beautiful. Walter and Brandie are people who love the outdoors. They also love the lake. We decided to make that one of our locations. Although it was windy, it was a lovely spot. I even got to see a couple of Canada Geese.
