L and I Say I Do | Northwest Arkansas Wedding Photographer

Lauren and Ian were the last of three weddings I
shot at St. Catherine's in Fayetteville last year.
Instead of being an elopement with only a bride and groom and maybe
one or two family members or friends, they had an intimate
wedding with a full wedding party, guests,
and a small reception at Noodles .
I love how St. Catherine's can be used for any wedding,
from elopements to huge events.
 

Waiting on River | Northwest Arkansas Maternity Photographer

I had the pleasure of traveling to a beautiful piece of land where a house was
freshly built and capturing the maternity photos for
this most amazing family.

I love how connected, down to earth, and easy going these people are.
It shines through in the photos, I think, and it makes me so happy.

 

She's got a lovely daughter who is so, so, so excited to be a big sister.

We ended the day with a milk bath, which is something I've wanted to do
for the longest time. 
I can't wait for their sweet little guy to get here!

Fairy Tale Wedding | Northwest Arkansas Wedding Photographer

I love St.Catherine's at Bell Gable.
It's so magical and beautiful.
And if you are lucky, the ponies will be wandering the property!
It adds such a fairy tale element to the wedding!

Jenn and Kyle had a beautiful spring wedding last year.
They were so sweet together.
They got ready and laughed together at the bridal suite but then
Kyle went down to the chapel to wait for Jenn to arrive in the
beautiful antique car.
 


I think the ivy was a gorgeous backdrop for their vows and a
unique way to use the chapel.

I love, love, love that they thought to bring champagne and a little
treat to share by themselves after the wedding!

A Lovely Intimate Wedding | Northwest Arkansas Elopement Photographer

My husband and I eloped. 
Just the two of us and a justice of the peace.
It may be one reason that I love photographing
elopements so much!

This gorgeous, intimate wedding took place at St. Catherine's at Bell Gable
in Fayetteville and Lauren and Michael were two of
the most adorable people in the world. 
So in love and utterly excited to get married.
My kind of people!
:)

Their first look was perfect. 
They were SO HAPPY to see each other.

New Beginnings | Northwest Arkansas Portrait Photographer

New Year
New Website
New Blog!
(but you can always visit the old one )

I'm so very excited to have a new platform to share my work. 
I'm in love with the new website
(Isn't it pretty? It's so pretty, right?!)
and I can't wait to start posting regularly again and give
RLP an active voice. 

I sort of put blogging on the back burner last year and felt that
since I was working on a new website
that maybe it was time to just start
completely from scratch on the blog, too. 
It's kind of liberating.
More than a little intimidating.
But mostly, it's exciting!!

Be on the look out for many more posts to come!
And since we can't have a post without a photo,
take a peek at just a wee little bit of what kept me so busy in 2015!
