Burn ban… say wha?!? The drought has just rained on my parade for some Fourth of July fun! Pun intended. I think.. I never was good with grammar, puns, or really big words for that matter. So feel free to laugh away if I totally bombed that! I had the GREAT fortune of keeping my nieces … More HAPPY FOURTH OF JULY: Anytime session
Rain put us back two days. I was panicked as both of our schedules were tight. But thank the Lord, our third attempt was a go and could not have been a more beautiful day!

Though my business is geared toward weddings and seniors, I try to avoid turning down the opportunity for a good ‘ole family session should my schedule allow. This year, I opted to have a day of family sessions in order to fulfill the needs of many asking for a family session along with giving them … More FALL FAMILY SESSIONS 2011
It’s amazing the things that you don’t think about when you are younger. I never thought about children, let alone nieces/nephews. I mean! Don’t get me wrong. It’s in a woman’s nature to want children. I knew I wanted them. Just never thought too much about the day I would have them. I’ll never forget the call and … More Addison + Ballet + God!
I don’t remember the exact details such as how old I was or what I was doing. What I do remember is my mother getting the call. Siblings! They’re great aren’t they? I have two; one sister (Sandi) and one brother (EuGene, David, Dave…he tends to change his name a lot :P)! Though my sister and … More Fabulous Friday: Softball + Siblings + Harry Potter?
Guilt! That is what I am feeling with the lack of blog posts lately! I have come to realize that end of school finalization is busier than all of school year put together! But with our last softball game tonight and school officially out tomorrow, hopefully I won’t have to feel guilty much longer! It helps … More The Forgotten Details: Prom 2011
The world is a big place. Huge. Everyday is a new opportunity to meet new faces. Learn their interests, likes, dislikes, hobbies, religion, occupation, etc. When I met Kim… I met my twin!! Seriously met my twin. We think and act just alike. Have the same interests. Like the same food. Drink the same drinks. It’s … More Anytime Session: Kim Boyd with KB Candids, Heber Springs, Arkansas
What is there left to say!?!? Greg and his class are graduated! I have grown to know and love so many in his class and can say it is just as hard to watch them move on to their adult lives! I’ve cried, laughed, stressed, worried, among a possible another 5 sets of emotions that I didn’t … More 2011 WeStSiDe ReBeLs GrAdUaTiOn…Coal Hill, Arkansas
It came. And. It went. Last Thursday I was wrapping up last-minute get-togethers for the next day when JD’s phone rang. I instantly knew who it was! Greg. Wanting to go somewhere after work. It was 8:30 and instantly, without really thinking, I said, tell him not to make it late because I have an early … More Fabulous Friday: The End…but yet…The Beginning!
When you have children, you do everything to protect them, raise them with good values, nurture them, and direct them the best way you can. With both of ours, we have been very hands-on. We volunteer for all functions we can, we join them for lunch at school, we ask about every detail of their … More My girls; always my girls! USA MURPHY!
I mentioned in a previous post that I would be doing some photographing of the Coal Hill Rodeo! Let’s just say, it is definitely not my area of expertise. I gave it one heck of a shot though. Unfortunately, when you are a natural light photographer, working with flash is something of a challenging task! But, … More Whatever Wednesday: The Rodeo..whewww..
I was about 8 or 9! I lived in a little house sitting on the hundreds of acres my grandparents owned. My Aunt Jeanne, who was still residing with them as she finished school, owned a horse. I used to just sit at the fence and stare at the black beauty. She would wave that long tail back … More Easter that bucks + Head shots!
Ahhhh. Young love. Remember that kind? You know. The kind of love without responsibility! The kind of love where you could run through the fields holding hands eating ice cream. The kind of love where you could plan dates every night of the week! And you did! Just because you couldn’t spend enough time with each other!! … More 2011 Westside Prom
