This little guy is waiting for his forever home. Black dogs are notoriously hard to adopt out for whatever reason. I’ve learned from photographing the shelter dogs, you really do have to get them out of their kennel’s to see their true personality. They are sweet, loving dogs waiting for that one special human to take them home. <3

When providing a service, consistency is key! This applies to the customer service I provide, the final editing look of your images, etc. I would hate for you to look at the images on my website, expect that from your session, and then see something totally different. But! Sometimes an image warrants a different processing style. So, I wanted to share two different processing styles that I typically do on images depending on the “look and feel” we’ve talked about for your session. If you prefer one over the other, definitely let me know during your consultation!

To demo this, I’ve take images from Mac’s session that work well with either the vivid color or muted vintage processing. There is not right or wrong to these images. It all comes down to your preference.

I want you to meet Laura. She is an amazing woman who wears many hats in life! Laura is a teacher at the local high school, a wife, and an IFPA Pro competitor just to name a few things. It was such a pleasure having her in the studio for a fitness glamour/boudoir session. We wanted to show off her amazing physique that she has worked so hard to build while keeping a soft, feminine feel to her images. And I wanted to share with you all what Laura had to say about her session via Facebook

“Working with Kim was amazing. This was my first shoot outside of wedding and engagement photos and that’s been a while. 🙂 I felt extremely comfortable and at ease with her and the photos i received were phenomenal!!!!”

It’s always a pleasure to get to work with Mckenzie! This time she came in for a studio session/helped me test my new lighting setup. Along with having some new lights, I created two tulle skirts for the studio closet too! One’s black for a more dramatic look, and the other is a soft pink/nude color for a soft, fun, flirty look.

It feels like Fall is finally here to stay here in Northwest Arkansas! I’m loving this cooler and calmer weather. It’s definitely more inspiring than hot muggy weather. Can I get an amen?! Anyways, I need to go scouting for locations to use on upcoming sittings, so Mackinzie and I headed out to Lake Windsor in Bella Vista after school yesterday to do just that.

There are so many popular and busy locations in and around Northwest Arkansas, I really needed to find something that’s a little off the beat and path so my clients and I can avoid the chaos of the crowds. Mackinzie and I ventured to a few places around Lake Windsor in Bella Vista, and one thing that I really love about all the lakes here in Arkansas, is you can find that amazing locations just about anywhere! All you have to do is go out and look and venture. If you’re needing locations too, I encourage you to take an afternoon and “get lost” exploring. You won’t be disappointed in the gems you’ll find!
