Yes, here we have another senior graduating in 2019. But this is not your average senior, this gal here is a sweet, kind and gentle soul. She is courageous and generous with what little she has to give. She is motivated despite the tough road that lays ahead. She is a fighter but with a gentle touch, this is Novaleigh Cline. My assistant whom I got to know this past year. We have grown close and if there is anyone whom I have met that I can say without a doubt will be successful in life, it is this determined young woman. Whatever path she takes, she will walk it straight and tall and she will overcome any obstacle with whatever journey she decides. Congratulations Nova, we could not be more proud to be a part of your life!
Yeah, it’s Saturday and I am a happy camper with my hot cup of coffee. Had my morning chat with my daughter and my mother. All good there. The sun is shining and life is good! I have three photo sessions I am wrapping up and a few shoots left before the end of 2018! Yes, can you believe it? Only 10 days until Christmas! And amazingly enough I am ready! I am feeling motivated so back to editing, need to get these beautiful images off to my clients. Happy Saturdaze everyone! Ciao!
Just two people in love in every way possible. Sneak peak of Baylee & Nick’s elopement. What long strange ride for these two. Driving from Oklahoma, they were half way to Eureka and had to turn around as Nick left part of his uniform at home. Once on the road again, about half way to Eureka (again), they ended up with a flat tire. They spent the night and had the tire replaced in the morning arriving just in time for Baylee to have her make up done by the very talented Maggie Mae, owner of Blossom Beauty. Baylee looked perfectly radiant!
It rained but it did not stop these two from venturing out in the beautiful scenic area of Oakcrest Cottages and Tree Houses which was perfect with the tall pines enveloped by the soft drizzle and fog. Their chapel is perfect for elopements with the beautiful waterfall in the background. I think it gave such a romantic look to their images. Did it rain on their parade? You bet! Did all of these obstacles dampen their day? Heck no! These two love birds will be together forever. Congratulations Mr. & Mrs. Harris!
Meet Ana, this happy go lucky young lady who is about to embark on a new journey. Ana has a big heart and she has big plans, she will be attending the University of Arkansas, Fort Smith for a degree in Accounting. She is a star soccer player, works hard and all around an amazing young gal. Here’s to you Ana, class of 2019!
I want to give a shout out for the support I received from our local businesses who so kindly gave me permission to shoot this beautiful young lady in their establishments! Jom at The Statton Gallery for allowing to photograph in his wonderful gallery and also allowing us to change clothes, Jim at Brew’s, Morgan at Mojo’s, Lulu & Queenie for the awesome support while on your boat and last but not least, Eureka & Co., while not shown, we used their dressing room several times!
Remember my post about Shelby giving a few sneak peaks? The gypsy soul with a gentle heart? Now enjoy a video montage showcasing her beautiful personality! Enjoy.
I met this couple a few months ago and the love between them was undeniable. These two are two of the kindest people I have come across. They have become more then clients but our friends. We wish them a life full of hugs and kisses! Congratulations to Julie & Heather.
Shelby is a gypsy soul with a gentle heart. She is not judgmental and cares for all of those around. She is a self assured young woman who lives with no issues in her skin. She is a vintage shopper with her own artsy style. Congratulations to Shelby, Hector High School graduating class of 2019.
Looking for inspiration for next year? The wait is over, look at these gorgeous dresses Vogue is showing for Fall of 2019! So what’s new? Think royal, yep like Megan Markle royal. Her dress style is selling off the racks. But it looks like no matter what your style, everything is game. Boho, minimalist, off the shoulder, on the shoulder. Although it wouldn’t be a fashion show if there were not new trends and cropped tops are showing along with elegant pantsuits. Take a look at the site to see if anything inspires you.
The memories created between only the two of you. Captured and etched in your mind forever, like a photograph. I came across this article this morning and after reading it I just knew I had to share it. My husband and I love to travel, we have been to several continents and countries, most recently Peru our new love interest. But we also love Europe and when I saw the words “love” and “France” in the same title, this story immediately grabbed my attention.
If you are the romantic type as I am, you will enjoy it. What I took away from the article is don’t be afraid to get lost, live in the moment, hold hands, travel, take risks.
For now, bonne journée.
Their moment saying their vows to one another.
We are an elopement destination. We love all marriages, intimate elopements and larger beautiful shindigs and anything in between. We can cover it all.
This is a very beautiful bride - Marlene who came to Eureka Springs to marry her love David in an outside ceremony at Grotto Springs. Beautiful!
When I am not on a scheduled shoot, my camera is still with me. We are grandparents who are in love with our grandbabies. They are spread out in various states so when we do see them, guess who has to take photos? You guessed it. These are our Jones’ babies. My daughter and son-in-law live in beautiful Huntsville, AL. These grandkids are world travelers and have been fortunate enough to live abroad. I love that they still love being around us and always look forward to our time together until……wait for it……Ghee-Ghee (aka me) pulls out my camera. The eyes roll, the sighs loud enough for city to hear, but they go for it and I love that they do.
Two people in love join together to become a unit. John Jerra, Ava and Bella, the four of you are the quintessential family starting on an adventure of a lifetime. Here’s to you Hayne’s family!
It is over the hump day! I love to hate Wednesday’s. It does mean closer to the weekend, but then I think, where has my week gone? It excites me that the weekend is almost here and scares me that the week is almost over and I still have a ton of things to do! How do you feel about Wednesday’s?
What have you been up to? We are having a blast with weddings! I wanted to share with you the last three I did this past week. Each so uniquely different which is what makes my job so cool. What does you big day look like?
Did you know that Lema Street Photography also does property photography? Whether real estate, lodging or showcasing your home we can help you.

"I'm going on 3 photo shoots now of 4 different properties and Susane has nailed it each time. She has a talent for not only taking great photos, but capturing the uniqueness and character of whatever subject she is photographing. Highly recommend."

These two are in perpetual love and with their two beautiful fun loving spirited girls, their family is now complete. I would say these photos are swoon worthy! From getting ready, to first look, the ceremony to a family. Enjoy the sneak peak.
How do I love you mornings? Let me count the ways. The first is – drumroll – you guessed it as it can only be summed up in one word, right? You got it: coffee. Yep, I love, love, love that first cup of the day!
Coffee happens to be my other half and it conveniently goes hand in hand with mornings. You morning people know exactly what I am talking about. I love being the first awake in the quiet still of the dawn with my hot morning brew of java! It is such a calming and hypnotic way to start off my day. It is my time to gather my thoughts and think of how my day will unfold.
What was different about this morning, as my schedule gets extremely busy going into fall, I just wanted to walk our unique town and see what I could find but from a different perspective. Yeah, mornings do this to me, I get crazy notions in my head! It also inspires me to be a better photographer, look at things I have seen a bazillion times and see what new spin I can put on it.
So off with my furry kid (dog) and camera I went. And with no regrets. This morning was a bit foggy with the sun cutting through sky. Much like some of the European towns I have visited. The quiet streets with just a few workers out saying hello, a couple of tourists enjoying the sites before everyone else, a street musician and me with my dog and camera.
I felt alive, motivated and inspired. I wanted to capture whatever caught my fancy. And I did. After 2 1/2 hours of just meandering the winding streets of Eureka, the hidden pathways, the crooked steps, I felt refreshed and ready to go again.
Here are a few of my favs from this morning. I hope you find your perfect time of day and take the time to appreciate and enjoy YOU, you deserve it. Until we meet again…..
Bonne journée mon ami!
This fellow called me wanting to surprise his girlfriend and propose to her at the Christ of the Ozark stature in Eureka Springs, AR. We had a time planned as they were driving in from another town. Then it happened, it started to rain. I thought do I call him? Will he reach out to me? Will his girlfriend see a text if I text him? We were to meet at 7:00 p.m. tonight! The clouds rolled in and it happened, it started pouring. I am running for cover with the my equipment to a pavilion. Then at 6:58 p.m. the clouds clear as they walk our way. Maria, his girlfriend still not knowing why they are there. Amazingly right after she accepted his proposal, a rainbow showed up. A true sign that this was meant to be.
