The McNair Family – Portraits

I’ve been photographing the McNair family over the past few years, ever since their firstborn son, Jack, was born. It’s been such a pleasure getting to document their family, and watch little Jack grow from a newborn to a toddler. And now, they have sweet baby Lilia added to their family!!

April contacted me earlier this year while she was still pregnant to see if we could arrange a family session in Austin once Lilia was born. I was able to head down there in early October, and I must say…I think this has been my favorite McNair session yet! Jack is at such a fun age and was chatting up a storm. I had a blast capturing his little personality, and couldn’t believe how much he’s grown!! And of course, sweet little Lily looked like a little porcelain doll!! Absolutely precious… I wasn’t able to make it down to Austin to photograph Lily’s baptism this summer, but we were still able to take some photos of her in her beautiful baptism gown.

Mini Portrait Sessions!

Faith & Will Wedding – June 25, 2011 – Ozan Winery, Calera, AL

I had the absolute pleasure of photographing Faith & Will’s Alabama wedding this past weekend. So much to say about this wedding and this sweet couple… Will is a photographer as well, so I was slightly nervous about photographing his wedding. But after grabbing coffee with him in Fayetteville earlier this month, my nerves calmed down quite a bit. He is so kind and laid back, and I couldn’t wait to meet Faith and her sweet son, Jones.

Will & Faith chose to see each other before the ceremony to get all of the formal photos taken care of. Soon after we pulled up to the beautiful Ozan Winery, it began POURING. Everyone pulled out their phones to check the weather radar, and just waited patiently for the rain to pass. Thankfully, it did stop raining, and it not only left enough time to still take photos beforehand, but it also left the most beautiful double-rainbow throughout the wedding ceremony. It was absolutely perfect… Faith & Will (& Jones) – a million thanks for trusting me to be your photographer. Thanks for making me feel so welcomed! I wish you all the absolute best!!

I’m so excited to launch this new website and blog!

Just for clarification – I am still doing non-profit work, and I currently work with 99 Balloons here in NWA. But, I’ve also decided to get back into weddings and portraits a bit here in Arkansas. So, this new site was birthed!

Most of the photos in my portfolio are from my time in Austin working as an associate photographer for Photography by Vanessa.

Take a look around the site, and please contact me with any questions!!
