About Me

My photo
I am a native of Arkansas, but now reside in Georgia. I love the Razorbacks. I love the south. I love sitting on the screened in porch sippin' lemonade. I love every shade of lipgloss on earth. I love bright colors. I love laying in the hammock listening to the birds and in the same breath I am terrified of birds! I love pedicures with cajun shrimp nail polish in the summer. I love listening to babies laugh. I love the smell of laundry detergent. This blog is all about cooking, crafts, decorating, my journey to getting into shape, and anything else I can think of! Thanks for stopping by!

Billy, Stacey, and Scarlet Sneak Peeks {Woodstock, GA Family and Child Photographer}

I met Stacey through a client of mine, Katie. Stacey and Billy have the cutest little girl I have ever seen. Miss Scarlet had just woken up from a nap when she arrived so she was not really into getting her picture taken. With a little bit of green popsicle bribing and some tickling, we got some good smiling photos! She has an infectious smile!

Baby Tarek Sneak Peeks {Marietta Newborn Photographer}

I met Samir and Nisreen when I did Nisreen's Baby Bump Session!! I couldn't get over what a beautiful couple they were. They are both from Lebanon originally and just have the most beautiful features and skin. I know, that sounds super weird and I am not a stalker ;) With that said, I knew Tarek Adam was going to be a beautiful baby and he certainly is.

We split this session up in 2. Tarek had a little bit of a stomach ache on our first attempt so we decided to let him rest and try again the next weekend. He cooperated a lot better this weekend!!

He is just the sweetest little thing ever. And when I say little, I mean little. He is so tiny. I think he has actually given me baby fever for the first time in years!! Hmmmm...... ;) Enjoy this sweet little bundle of joy!

The Stafford Family Sneak Peeks {Duluth, GA Family and Child Photographer}

Amy was a client of mine when I worked for a software company out of New Jersey. What's funny is that she worked for the company before I did and one of our mutual coworkers always told me that we would have a lot of fun together. Amy and I tend to be a little silly :) I hadn't seen her is over 2 years before this session. Since then she has added to her family. Not only does she have her adorable son Grayson (check out his eyes!), but she has added Stella and Lola to the mix in the last 2 years. Her kiddos are adorable. I know her and Jerry are very proud!

My New Assistant

I haven't named him yet, but so far he has been called Bug and Fred. He helped out a lot with my sessions this weekend. I had a family with a 7 month old, 18 month old, and 4 year old and one with a 2 year old. Whatever works right!?!?!? Thanks for the idea Pinterest!

The McDaniel Family Sneak Peeks {Lowell, AR Family and Child Photographer}

Leslie and I have been friends for a very long time. She is one of the greatest people I know. She is so beautiful, smart, strong, dedicated, loyal, and the list could go on and on. I have never really known anyone like her. She is just amazing. And her husband Ryan, he is just as awesome. The last I saw her before this week was 8 years ago. Hayden was only 5 years old and she had no other kids. When Hayden jumped out of the car and went to introduce himself to me I just had to grab him and hug him. He is so handsome and is such an awesome kid, just like his momma and dad. Leslie now has a 3 year old, Miller, and a 4 month old, Rhett and they are just as adorable as Hayden. This family is just beautiful and I love them all!

The Eide Family Sneak Peeks {Cave Springs, AR Family and Child Photographer}

This family happens to be pretty darn special to me. If you don't know me, you may not know that I go by "Lala" to quite a few kids and it all started with Connor 11 years ago! Lauren was my best friend in high school and we have done nothing but grow closer over the years. I lived with her and Gregg when Connor was one. One day he saw me and came running to me yelling Lala and I have been Lala ever since. At Lauren and Gregg's wedding, the groomsman I walked with happen to be my future husband. I was in the hospital room on the day Brynn was born. I was absolutely heart broken on Halloween when she called me crying telling me that she found out she was having a boy and a girl and that the little girl would pass away at birth from anencephaly. I live 12 hours away from her and it was so hard to not be there for her everyday. Cowen and Lilly Kate were born on February 10th and Lilly Kate was only on this earth for about an hour and a half, but she has remained in our hearts and thoughts everyday. From the pictures below you can tell this family is full of love.

The Nowlin Family Sneak Peeks {Springdale, AR Family and Child Photographer}

I met Tami when I was in the 7th grade, 19 years ago. We had Mrs. Spicer's English class together. I have always thought that she was one of the most beautiful people on earth. I mean look at her, she is gorgeous. Not only have her and Steve made 2 beautiful children, but their children are also absolutly hilarious. I love hearing her stories about them. Grace is 6 and Tyler is 4 and they are best buddies. I loved photographing this gorgeous family!

The Shaw Family Sneak Peeks {Centerton, AR Family and Child Photographer}

I have known Devin since high school. We worked together at Goldie's Patio Grill when I was 16 years old. When I was in my early 20's and needed to make some extra money I went back to Goldie's part time. Devin worked there again too. While we worked there she met Craig. I remember her being so in love with him. Today I can tell she is just as in love with him as she was then, but even more. Devin asked me to have her parents in the pictures with them and of course I said yes. Her parents are so sweet and so in love too. It's was super sweet to see them together. Not to mention how cute Hunter, Sullivan, and Savannah are. This is a fabulous family!

The Tillman Family Sneak Peeks {Cave Springs, AR Family & Child Photographer}

The day before I took the Tillman's pictures, I took pictures of Hillary's best friend's family. Their daughters happen to be best friends too and Ryleigh went on and on about how awesome Lola was so I was really looking forward to this session. The day before the session Hillary wrote me and said that if Grayson showed up in a Captain America costume that she had lost a battle. So, between meeting "awesome Lola" and "super hero Grayson", I knew I was about to have some fun. Grayson jumped out of their car with a plaid shirt on and an action figure of Iron Man. He quickly showed me that under his plaid shirt was a batman shirt. Batman made many appearances throughout the session!! These kids are absolutely adorable. I know Mark and Hillary are so proud to be the parents of these little gems.
