We are thankful for our local businesses.

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!

Two Became One

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.

A beautiful bohemian soul.

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.

 She was not only ready to fly with the universe,  she soared .

Wedding Inspiration for 2019

https://www.brides.com/gallery/wedding-dress-trends-fall-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.


It's all about love actually.

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.

Elopements are my thing

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!


Capture everyone!

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.



John & Jerra Haynes

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!

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.

Don't hate me because I am a morning person!

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!

It was a sign that this was meant to be.

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.

The family that plays together, stays together.

I had the loveliest time photographing this family who was here in Eureka Springs on vacation. It was a family that had all girls, beautiful girls, very kind girls and yes, grown up girls. They wanted to surprise their Mom and Dad with an updated family photo. Each daughter/sister unique and beautiful in their own way. They had their "guys" by their sides as well and together with Mom and Dad, we captured it all and had a little fun along the way.

Bekka & Nino

Perfect is when two people who find each other, complete each other and they shine. This is how I would describe this fun loving, down to earth couple. Two school teachers who have a passion for their young students, each other, their family and the world around them. Congratulations Bekka & Nino, the perfect couple whom together has the universe in your hands.
