I recently photographed the new studios for Lifeword. Lifeword is a broadcast ministry based in Conway. They recently purchased a new property and have renovated it into the nicest recording and production studio I have ever seen. I wanted to share a few photos from this shoot.

My Girls

Thursday night Melissa had some friends over, so I decided to work late with our girls at the studio. Anne Ryan came first after ballet and Mary Dean showed up later after swim lessons. Annie really wanted me to take her photo in her ballet outfit. I convinced her to wait until Mary Dean got there so I could get some work done. Of course Mary Dean wanted to take the pictures, so I let them take turns taking each other's photos. These are the results. No kidding, they took these all by themselves. I hope I have two future photographers here.

Barb at Garvin Gardens

I wanted to post a few images from a wedding Barbara shot last weekend. Her wedding was at Garvin Gardens in Hot Springs, which is a beautiful place for a wedding. Barbara really has a great eye for capturing the important moments on a bride's special day. It's a great joy for me to have such talented photographers as Barbara and Brooke on staff. It's wonderful to know that when I am already booked, instead of just telling brides that I can't photograph their wedding, I can send someone like Barb or Brooke to capture their big day. One thing I encourage every bride to consider, is the role your wedding photographer plays in the wedding day. When looking at photographers you should not only consider the quality of their work, but also the personality of the photographer as well. In many cases we are still friends with the bride and groom from weddings I photographed ten years ago. I hired Barb and Brooke not just for their skill when it comes to photography but also for their character and personalities as well. Check out this beautiful slideshow of the Mannis wedding.


It's been a great month. Inviting Arkansas was kind enough to do a nice editorial on our new studio in Little Rock. If you haven't seen it, look at this month's issue. I also was asked to contribute to the recent fall At Home in Arkansas wedding edition. These are both such great publications.

These Are Days to Remember

I love photographing High School Seniors. Seniors are one of my favorite subjects because they are always up for something new and different. I honestly feel like I'm getting to play and just have fun when I'm photographing a senior session. I have a special place in my heart for high school students because of twenty plus years of working with YoungLife. I know a lot of you think I'm only twenty-three "HA HA", but I am, in fact, old enough to have done something for twenty years. Anyway, high school is such a pivotal time in a person's life. I feel like high school and college were truly my formative years and that anything was possible. I love being around young people who are full of so much hope and promise. I hope seniors will always be a big part of our business. Check out a few of the seniors I have photographed in the last couple of weeks.
