I felt like Secret Squirrel the day that these two got engaged. I stood, waiting for them to meander their way down to the waterfall feature of Beau Jardin. Impatient.

Sarah’s bridal portraits were a first for me– we did them in her home! Usually, I work with clients in public, but this was the first time ever doing bridals indoors and in my client’s home. I absolutely love her decor style, by the way. She’s got that light and airy, rustic-yet-sophisticated country style. Sarah’s […]

  I met up with Sarah and Randall before dawn in Natchitoches. It was still very dark outside when we made our way to Longleaf Vista in Kisatchie National Forest. We timed it perfectly, though, because as soon as we got to the location the sun was peeking above the treeline. I adore Kisatchie. It’s incredibly […]
