Back from Arkansas

I’m bAAAAAck! 
Y’all let me tell you something, the Ozark Mountains are stunning this time of year. No wonder I had such a hard time finding a cute cabin for us to stay in. We ended up staying in Hot Springs and took a day trip to the Ozarks. I am still on could nine thinking about all the beautiful things I saw……bold rich fall colors (the prettiest I’ve ever seen), natural waterfalls, maintains, old rustic bridges, vacant shacks…..the list just goes on and on. I was wishing my niece was with me. We would’ve had tons of backdrop options for her senior pictures. Oh my gosh to be a photographer in Arkansas this time of yea; I can’t even imagine! 


I now have trillions of pictures of fall scenery that I have no idea what I’m going to do with.


I was thinking about maybe making a fall picture calendar or may using the images on notes cards.
I have no idea! I know I’m going to frame a few and hang them in our living room…someday! I’ve been saying I’m going to do gallery way for the longest!



Kent and I pulled out the tripod and took our Christmas card photos. This is our second year doing this as Kent refuses to let me hire a photographer. Let me tell ya it’s not easy! We were able to get a few cutes ones. I will say we did a better job using the tripod this year. Last year was even more of a mess! I think we got maybe 2 good ones last year but we have 6 or so keepers. I’m cool with that!

I was in need of a new headshot so my sweet hubby took over the camera for a bit. I feel pretty lucky that Kent also knows his way around a camera! I told him what type of pose and shot I was looking for and he took care of the rest.

On a side note I HATE being on the other side of the camera.

I now want some type of chemical peel.

Annnnddd I have one eye that’s bigger than the other when I smile….in some shots (you can see what I’m talking about in the pic on the right). What in the world is up with that? I think that’s a new thing.



Once I have a chance to work through more of our photos I’m going to share more about our trip to fall heaven! We already talking about going back next year!


  1. HOME! I was just there last week. To be home in the fall was the biggest treat ever. I'm from NW Arkansas, but my visits the last few years have just been in the summer and for Christmas, so I'd forgotten how amazing autumn is there. The colors and perfect weather just seep into my heart and I feel more calm, creative, and peaceful. Home. I'm so glad you enjoyed it!

  2. I had no idea you were up here! Isn't my home beautiful? I love NW AR! Go Hogs!! :o)
