North Little Rock, AR | 6 Month Session | Baby Arthur https://kairosphotography.zenfolio.com/blog/2020/5/north-little-rock-ar-6-month-session-baby-arthur LOOK AT THIS HANDSOME FELLA! I love me some Arthur. He is my buddy, and he has done way too much growing since this pandemic started. The very last photo in this blog is Arthur as a newborn, at 3 months, and then at 6 months. So much change and so many faces! He has a really fun personality, and his giggle will make you laugh every single time. I can't wait to see what changes happen before the next time he is in front of my camera.

Murfreesboro, TN | 2 Year Session | Daisy Mae https://kairosphotography.zenfolio.com/blog/2020/5/murfreesboro-tn-2-year-session-daisy-mae This precious girl is two years old today! Daisy is full of energy and smiles. We were a little short on the smiles during this session, but trust me when I say her grin lights up the room! We sure love our Daisy girl. She has been such a blessing to our family. I can't believe she is already two. I remember the day we got to meet her like it was yesterday! It was a time filled with joy, and she has been putting a smile on our faces ever since. Praise God for Daisy!

Searcy, AR | Engagement Session | Nathan and Emily https://kairosphotography.zenfolio.com/blog/2020/3/searcy-ar-engagement-session-nathan-and-emily Nathan and Emily are getting married! We had such a fun time taking these photos, and I really enjoyed spending time with this couple. They make such a cute pair! I found myself asking Emily to close her eyes a lot because her eye makeup was so beautiful. I am looking forward to photographing their wedding, as long as we are still allowed to leave our house by the time it rolls around. :/

I hope these pictures bring some smiles to your faces in this time of uneasiness. What a bizarre time we are currently living in. I pray that everyone is staying safe and staying home! 

Enjoy these photos and think back to the times when things were normal. They will be normal again!

Downtown Little Rock, AR | 9 Month Session | Jovie Kay https://kairosphotography.zenfolio.com/blog/2020/2/downtown-little-rock-ar-9-month-session-jovie-kay My baby girl is 9 months old! Lindsey took some adorable pictures for us at the studio, and I just had to show them off. We are still mesmorized by this sweetie and her giant smile. I cannot believe that the next time we have her in the studio, she will be smashing a cake as a 1-year old. How does it feel like I was in the hospital giving birth just last week? 

Our lives are so blessed by Jovie. She has brought more joy into our days than we could have ever imagined. I am excited to continue to watch her grow and blossom into her personality.

Engagement Session | Bradley and Amy https://kairosphotography.zenfolio.com/blog/2020/2/engagement-session-bradley-and-amy Happy Valentine's Day! What better thing to post than an amazing engagement session?! You won't want to stop scrolling!

Amy is one of my good friends from college. I was so excited when she texted me that she was engaged and wanted me to capture their wedding for them! I was anxious to meet Bradley, because Amy deserves the best. It is safe to say he met my expectations! You can tell they have a lot of love for each other, and these pictures prove that. They were so comfortable around each other and had so many genuine giggles. I loved it! 

I enjoyed seeing the Bible they wanted to use for some of their shots. It had lots of markings and highlights, which shows it is pretty well used. I have big prayers that they will always have that at the center of their relationship, and I know their marriage will be one that shows off the love of Christ!

Thank you, Bradley and Amy, for trusting me to come along with you on this journey in such a big way. I can't wait for your wedding day!

Downtown Little Rock, AR | Newborn Photographer | Lynley https://kairosphotography.zenfolio.com/blog/2020/2/downtown-little-rock-ar-newborn-photographer-lynley Meet Lynley. Look at those big, bright eyes! I confess, it has been about 2 months since I took these photos (hence the Christmas outfit on baby girl towards the end of this post), but they are just too cute not to share!

Big brother here was actually one of the first babies I ever photographed, WELL before Kairos was ever a thing. I enjoyed getting to see this family again and celebrate the new addition to their family. I just love how much Lynley resembles her momma! If you are like me, I get comments constantly about how my daughter only looks like her dad. Some mommas have all the luck! 

Lynley girl was a joy to photograph.

You never really know how a cake smash is going to go. Sometimes the baby can't get enough, and sometimes they want nothing to do with it. Little Ava wasn't real thrilled about her cake, but boy is she cute! I'm excited to share this sneak preview with you. Enjoy!!

Downtown Little Rock, AR | Newborn Photography | Baylor Lowe https://kairosphotography.zenfolio.com/blog/2020/2/downtown-little-rock-ar-newborn-photography-baylor-lowe Goodness time flies! I feel like this family was announcing their second pregnancy just yesterday. I also remember photographing their firstborn at this own newborn session like it was last week. It goes to show that time is super precious, and this family is enjoying each moment with their newest addition.

Meet Baylor. Don't you just love his hair?! Baylor did a pretty good job of staying asleep for his photos, but he was also very curious to find out where he was before giving it up. Whenever you see that famous "head-in-hands" pose, you know the baby was knocked out for at least that portion of the session. I like to think he felt very comfortable in our studio and in our hands. 

We so enjoyed photographing this little bean in the first weeks of his life. We got to recreate and use some of the same props from big brother's newborn session, which I thought was really special. Thank you guys for trusting us with such a big milestone in your lives! We hope that you will look back at these photos with fond memories and happy hearts!

Downtown Little Rock, AR | Senior Session | Rebecca Lynn https://kairosphotography.zenfolio.com/blog/2020/1/downtown-little-rock-ar-senior-session-rebecca-lynn Well sure I took these 2 months ago, but better late in posting than never! This is Rebecca, and I am still in love with her senior session. She was a natural in front of the camera and had some super cute outfits to show off. We had fun walking around downtown, and Rebecca especially liked it when she got to take off her huge heels. 

Senior sessions are always fun because they are at such an exciting time in their lives. I loved college so much more than high school, and I remember that anticipation of "being on my own." Rebecca is full of life and has so much to offer the world! I will be excited to see where God takes her. 

Thank you, Rebecca, for trusting me to capture this special time in your life!

Sherwood, AR | Mommy and Me Session | Molly and Allie https://kairosphotography.zenfolio.com/blog/2020/1/sherwood-ar-mommy-and-me-session-molly-and-allie This is one of my favorite shoots to date! 1) Because LOOK at that pretty sunlight! 2) Because I love these gals so much. I have been photographing Allie since she was born, and it blows my mind to look at her now and see how much she has grown. She is so sweet and super fun to spend time with. Oh, and she looooooves her mommy! These pictures really show off the beautiful relationship they share. It is fun, cuddly, has lots of smiles, and makes you want your own mini-me! 

This location is literally next to a McDonalds. This is the second time I have used it, and I LOVE it! Great photos can be taken pretty much anywhere if you know what you are looking for. 

Thanks, Molly, for trusting me to capture some unforgettable moments with you and your daughter!

Here is another kiddo I have had the privilege of watching grow up. I still have a picture stored on my Google Photos of when I first held Titus in my arms. Look at him now! He is a pro at smiling for the camera, and he was super patient in getting all of the pictures we wanted. I am blessed to call this family my friends, and I already know I am going to be blown away next time I see Titus and how big he is.

We can help with that! Any time is the right time to photograph a sweet baby. Meet Charleigh! We had so much fun with her and her fun facial expressions in our studio. As you can see, Charleigh's parents have contagious smiles. This session was full of laughter and energy, which was much needed with a baby who is exiting the sleepy newborn stage. I am so glad I got to capture this little girl at this exciting stage in her life!

But better late than never, right? I was in Youth Group with Lauren and Alexis, back in the day. And now between them they have these 4 sweet boys! And oh man are they CUTE. They were pros for me on such a cold winter day. Enjoy these shots from this session!

What is sweeter than an entire family in matching pajamas? Besides the faces of the these adorable kiddos, not much compares. ;) I have been photographing this family since I started my "picture taking" journey. They hold such a special place in my heart, and I know they are loved by so many others. I feel blessed to be able to capture several milestones within their family. 

Before I left this home to go on my way, I was invited to stay for chocolate gravy, I was asked by the two youngest girls to come back to babysit them, and I was hugged goodbye. I felt so welcomed and filled with joy! "Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers a multitude of sins. Offer hospitality to one one another without grumbling." 1 Peter 4:8-9

Two Rivers Trail | Little Rock, AR | Jared and Jenni https://kairosphotography.zenfolio.com/blog/2019/11/two-rivers-trail-little-rock-ar-jared-and-jenni Meet my friends, Jared and Jenni. I finally got to take pictures of them and it was totally worth the wait! They put a lot of trust in me when I said, "So, there is this place I saw 4 years ago that I think was really pretty. Do you want to go there?" It wasn't quite what I remembered, but man those fall colors really delivered! I am excited to revisit this spot in the future!

Jared and Jenni go to my Church, and they are some of the most amazing people you could ever meet. My family and friends have been seriously blessed by them. Not pictured is their small pony, Rizzo (okay, okay it is their dog but he is freakin huge). We were sad to not get pictures with him, but I have a feeling we will be doing this again when the whole family can be together. 

Thank you, guys, for letting me photograph you! It was long overdue!

Downtown Little Rock, AR | 6 Month Session | Jovie Kay https://kairosphotography.zenfolio.com/blog/2019/11/downtown-little-rock-ar-6-month-session-jovie-kay My baby girl is 6 MONTHS OLD TODAY! We celebrated earlier this week with a 6 month session in our studio, and they could not be more perfect! Capturing these milestones has been such a fun thing for me as a mom and photographer.

Jovie is sitting up on her own (though still VERY wobbly). She loves smiles, laughing, grabbing her feet, slobbering, chewing on her hands, sticking her tongue out, and for some reason, STANDING ON HER OWN (sorry for the excessive use of capital letters in this post)! During this session, we made sure to get pictures with me, her dad, and her Aunt Lindsey, who took most of these fabulous photos.

Some of my favorite things about Jovie are her gorgeous blue eyes, her contagious smile, and her happy personality. She is a very loving baby and likes to have fun with the people around her. 

I want to give a shoutout to a few people! First of all, my sister-in-law, Katie Frazier, has been giving us hand-me-downs from her baby girl, Daisy. It has been such a blessing to us, and this outfit came from them. Lisa Farley (aka Momma Farley, aka honorary grandma) gave me this "Mommy" necklace that I wear every week. I love it and display it with pride! The adorable dress towards the end came from Jovie's Noni. We all loved it so much we had to include it in our session! Last but not least, I have to say another "thank you" to Lindsey for always doing such a great job with our photos! Lindsey, you are amazing and we are blessed by you!

Argenta Arts District | Senior Photography | Robin Stover https://kairosphotography.zenfolio.com/blog/2019/11/argenta-arts-district-senior-photography-robin-stover Dialogue between Mrs. Stover and me:

Mrs. Stover: "Melanie, Robin would like to do a photo shoot with you."

Melanie: "I didn't even know you had another daughter!"

Mrs. Stover: "Yes, this is our third and final child."

Thank goodness for that third and final child, because Robin totally rocked her senior session. She was SUCH a natural in front of the camera. I love working with seniors, and namely, seniors who know how to pose themselves! It creates such a fun environment for me as a photographer. I would start to say, "Ok, maybe put your ha.... Oh... Nope that's good like that!" 

Argenta is the name for North Little Rock's downtown area. I really love taking pictures here because it is smaller and "easier" than Downtown Little Rock. I recommend this location for families with smaller kids or for someone who wants to avoid the hustle and bustle of the city. 

I am so glad I got to take pictures of Robin. I'm sad to see the Stover sisters go, but I know they are going to do great things as they move on in life!

Arkansas Wedding | Evan and Rachel Neumeier https://kairosphotography.zenfolio.com/blog/2019/10/arkansas-wedding-evan-and-rachel This wedding was a blast to photograph! The venue was at Mount Nebo State Park, which I didn't realize was so close by! Just wait till you see the view -- it made me proud to be from my home state of Arkansas. 

Not only is this bride GORGEOUS (see her bridal session here), but she was so fun and happy throughout the whole day. It was so fun to spend time with her and her many siblings. She and Evan were so goofy together and it made for a memorable day! Enjoy your sneak peek!

He was adopted by these two remarkable human beings, and as you can see, he is dearly loved! This session was more like a "fresh 168 session," but adorable nonetheless. 

Meet Jacob Thomas! Born at a whopping 5 pounds, his tiny body is full of strength, love, and hope. He had the hearts of all the staff at UAMS. The day he got to go home was an exciting day for everyone! I was honored to photograph him in the place he spent the first week of his life. 

Congratulations to the new mom and dad! We so appreciate you contacting us to capture such a huge moment in your lives. We just love your little boy!

She is sitting up like a champ and loves her big sister. I absolutely loved capturing the genuine smiles from this family. They are fun to spend time with, and I bet there is never a dull moment in their household. 

The next time you see Emersyn, she will be a year old! Here's to hoping those beautiful baby blues stick around. Blue-eyed babies are kind of my favorite to photograph.

This little baby is already so loved. 

It is hot out there folks. We are really looking forward to getting some cooler weather as fall rolls around. Brittany and Brad handled the heat like champs! I enjoyed capturing some of their last moments together before they become a family of three. Congratulations to you both!

Little Rock, AR | Studio Session | Riley https://kairosphotography.zenfolio.com/blog/2019/9/little-rock-ar-studio-session-riley You might remember Riley from her newborn session, just 6 months ago! I can't believe she's 6 months old, and boy is she CUTE. Her big brother came along and prompted most of these smiles. This was such a fun and sweet session! We will see Riley again in another 6 months. Enjoy!

Murfreesboro, TN | Family Lifestyle Photography | The Frazier Family https://kairosphotography.zenfolio.com/blog/2019/9/murfreesboro-tn-family-lifestyle-photography-the-frazier-family Melanie here. This is my family! We went to Tennessee for Labor Day weekend and had a blast with these precious kiddos. Daisy, Jovie, and Louis have brought so much joy to our lives! I really wanted to capture the simplicity and happiness of just a normal day. We stayed in our pjs til super late in the day, we shared meals together, and we laughed a lot! I can't imagine going back to "pre-kid" life, nor would I want to! The smiles, snuggles, and playtimes are irreplaceable. I love my family so much and am glad to have photos like this to look back on.

Searcy, AR | Birth and Fresh 48 | Welcome Emberly https://kairosphotography.zenfolio.com/blog/2019/8/searcy-ar-birth-and-fresh-48-welcome-emberly Welcome to the world, baby Emberly! Your parents eagerly anticipated your arrival and it's obvious you are extremely loved by so many family and friends!

Bre and Brandon's wedding was one of our very first Kairos weddings! And now we get to spend the next year with them, photographing this sweet baby girl as she grows. I've so enjoyed spending time with these two for their maternity session and now at the hospital! Bre is a superhero for all that she went through for this birth. Enjoy this beautiful story told through photographs! This is one of my favorite parts of my job.

I thought I'd take this opportunity to mention that this will be our last birth for a while! With Melanie's new baby, and my (Lindsey's) new job, we just can't guarantee that we'd be able to make it in a moment's notice. Thanks for understanding! We plan to pick back up with the birth's as soon as we can! But we ARE still doing First Year Plans! Bring them on, we love the babies!

We decided that Arkansas heat and Arizona heat are very different. But these sweet siblings were pros and did a great job for their pictures! With a 14 year old and a 2 year old, this made for such a fun and unique session. Enjoy!

Downtown Little Rock, AR | 3 Month Session | Jovie Simpson https://kairosphotography.zenfolio.com/blog/2019/8/downtown-little-rock-ar-3-month-session-jovie-simpson In our experience, most people don't do a 3 month session. We hope this changes your mind. ;) Melanie here, and this is my baby girl, Jovie! Isn't she the sweetest?! At 3 months, babies are hitting so many different milestones, and we had a blast capturing them! 

Jovie is all smiles these days. She is gaining lots of weight, and we are all so proud of her! As of now, she still has those dreamy baby blues. I am really hoping they decide to stick around for the rest of her life. 

I will, once again, reiterate that we LOVE having a studio, especially when the temperature outside is over 100 degrees! You can see that a studio session doesn't have to be "stuffy," boring, and super posed. We had some fun and got some really sweet images! I will cherish these pictures and memories forever.

Searcy, AR | 1 Year Photographer | Hudson https://kairosphotography.zenfolio.com/blog/2019/8/searcy-ar-1-year-photographer-hudson Hudson is 1 year old! I believe he was the first to use us for a My First Year plan, and now I'm happy / sad to have completed it. It's been so sweet to watch him grow this year and see what a sweetheart he is. We ended this shoot with a FUN and COOL bubble bath. I was jealous because it was well over 100º that day! But Hudson sure had a blast with it! HUGE thank you to Jessica and Christian for asking me to capture Hudson's first year! You have such a beautiful family!

North Little Rock, AR | 3 Year Session | Allie Fay https://kairosphotography.zenfolio.com/blog/2019/8/north-little-rock-ar-3-year-session-allie-fay So. Much. Personality. We love this little girl to pieces. Allie is 3 now, and we have been taking her pictures since she was born. CRAZY! Just yesterday, I was going through all of the photos we have taken of her over the years. It is such a blast to see her grow up from one session to the next. 

Allie is a firecracker! She has a lot of energy, and of course we picked a super hot day to do these photos. By the end of it, we were all needing a jump in the pool (which of course, we did). I have said it before, but I love the challenge of photographing toddlers/kids. I enjoy the squats, the running, the bending in weird shapes, and the joy of it all. I won't lie, though. I could not have done this session without the army behind me. Of course Molly (mom) was there to lend a helping hand, but I also had my friends Lindsey and Jenni assist me in trying to get the attention of this cutie pie. Job well done and job well worth it! I love how these pictures turned out. 

We are going to blink our eyes and Allie will be 4. I can't wait to see yet another year of growth!

Downtown Little Rock, AR | 6 Month Session | Louis Frazier https://kairosphotography.zenfolio.com/blog/2019/8/downtown-little-rock-ar-6-month-session-louis-frazier Say hello to Louis, my favorite nephew! Ok, my only nephew. The last time you saw him, he was just over 1 day old! He is growing way too fast, and we are so in love with him! 

Louis loves when his mom and dad sing to him. He grins ear-to-ear when they call him "chicken" or "peanut," and he has the highest pitched laugh you could imagine! He is a pro at flipping over, and is ridiculously close to sitting up on his own. As of now, he only has one tooth, but he slobbers so much that the next one is just around the corner. 

It is so much fun to have kids at the same time as your siblings. At the end of this post, you can see my other brother's baby girl, Daisy. She is 1 now which totally blows my mind. The last picture is one of Louis, my baby, Jovie, and sweet Daisy (you can read about her story here - https://kairosphotography.zenfolio.com/blog/2018/12/daisy-mae-frazier-a-story-of-patience). We are beyond blessed!

I can't believe we're half way through his first year plan. I love first year plans because I get to witness moments through my lens that will never be repeated! They're only this little for a short period of time. And how sweet they are during this time! Enjoy these sweet pictures!

Downtown Little Rock, AR | Bridal Session | Chelsea Allman https://kairosphotography.zenfolio.com/blog/2019/7/downtown-little-rock-ar-bridal-session-chelsea-allman Our new favorite thing is to have bridal sessions in our studio. How gorgeous is this sister of mine?! Lindsey and I were so excited to do these photos for Chelsea. She got married to man of her dreams this last Saturday, and it was the most beautiful wedding you could imagine! 

Chelsea is wearing my Grandma Parker's pearls. It was so special to have a part of her with us on the wedding day. Her hair and makeup was done by Amber Boyd of Symmetrix Salon in Searcy. She is the best and made the wedding day so fun! 

Chelsea and her new husband, Braden, are off in Antigua living it up with bubble baths and room service. Cheers to them as they start their lives together! I love you both so much!

Downtown Little Rock, AR | Cake Smash Session | Elsie Carrell Turns One https://kairosphotography.zenfolio.com/blog/2019/7/downtown-little-rock-ar-cake-smash-session-elsie-carrell-turns-one I can't believe baby Elsie is one year old! It feels like yesterday when I was photographing her birth into this world. But here we are! And just LOOK at this cake smash session! Elsie's mom totally nailed the prop department for this shoot. I think that is one of the prettiest cakes I have ever seen. And the sweet baby next to it made it even prettier.

Elsie has the sweetest smile and personality. She is very mobile and really enjoyed crawling out of our studio whenever she got the chance. We really thought she would be little more interested in the cake, but she only ate a tiny bit of frosting before she was over it. The milk bath cured all of her crying though! I just love how these photos turned out. Happy one-year Elsie girl!

The last time we saw Ronin, he was 2 weeks old, and we were still doing newborn sessions in my living room! It is crazy how much can change in 6 months time!

As you can see, Ronin is still stinkin' cute. I mean he has a lot to live up to with how adorable big sister is! This precious family brought a lot of energy and giggles to our studio. Both were great ingredients for a magnificent photoshoot! I can't believe that it will be another 6 months before I see Ronin. I am already looking forward to capturing yet another milestone in his life!

Sherwood, AR | Lifestyle Session | Jovie Kay https://kairosphotography.zenfolio.com/blog/2019/6/sherwood-ar-lifestyle-session-jovie-kay "I will always hold you close and love you more than yesterday. You are safe inside my arms cause baby girl I'm here to stay. Thank God for you, for what you are and what you're soon to be. Jovie Kay you're everything. You're everything to me."

Those are the words to the song you see in these photos. Let me tell you a little bit about this nursery and the army of people who contributed to it. That giant canvas was painted, yes painted, by my sister-in-law, Lindsey. Lindsey is the other half of Kairos and is the one who took these amazing pictures. 

Except for the crib, all of the furniture was re-finished by two generous women. The glider and dresser were taken care of by Connie Hayes, who is an amazing woman of God from my Church. The shelf unit was done by my sweet mother-in-law, Ruth Simpson! We didn't pay a dime for any of this stuff! We are so very blessed by our support system.

The two quilts you see were beautifully crafted by our close family. The pink one was made by Momma Ruth, and the purple one was made by my great aunt Carolyn. I love that Jovie will have such beautiful keepsakes as she grows!

Two of the featured stuffed animals are very special to me. The small pink elephant came from my parents, and I used it to announce Jovie's name on social media. The larger green/teal elephant came from my sweet cousins, Ally and Lydia. I am using it to mark her growth in her month-by-month photos! 

On the shelf unit, you see several different decorations. The doll on the left was my Grandma Frazier's, who loved collecting things. The doll on the right was given to me by my parents when I was younger, along with the "baby treasures" box. Both things were kept in my room as a child. I would keep treasured little trinkets in the box, like my Great Grandma Hamilton's locket, so that I could look at them any time I wanted. 

The beautiful carousel belonged to my husband's Grammy, Joyce. How appropriate that our little girl is named Jovie, which stems from "jovial."  

Last but not least, this cradle was built by my husband's Grampa Bob. I love seeing our little girl sleep in it each night. The rocking chair was passed down from my husband's side as well. I love rocking Jovie in it as I sing to her! I have to say it again. We are RICHLY BLESSED!

Jonesboro, AR | Wedding Photographer | Crain Wedding https://kairosphotography.zenfolio.com/blog/2019/6/jonesboro-ar-wedding-photographer-crain-wedding (Lindsey here!) This wedding was extra special, because Kristen and I have been friends and roommates since college. I got to watch these two meet, fall in love, and now be there on their wedding day. As you can already tell, I was the photographer, but I was ALSO the Maid of Honor. It was a crazy day, to say the least! 

My favorite part of the day was right after the first look. We did a first look with the groom, and then again for her parents. THEN her brother who is in the Navy surprised her by showing up. You can see the pure joy and excitement in Kristen's face, and that was my favorite moment of the whole day! What a sweet reunion.

Kristen worked hard planning every detail of this wedding, and she did a fabulous job. I mean, just look at that dress! She was surrounded by so much love and support all day long. Kristen, I'm so grateful for your friendship and I wish you the best in this next stage of life. I hope your new roommate treats you as well as I did ;)

Downtown Little Rock, AR | Studio Newborn Photography | Jovie Kay Simpson https://kairosphotography.zenfolio.com/blog/2019/6/downtown-little-rock-ar-studio-newborn-photography-jovie-kay-simpson Melanie here! I am ecstatic to share MY BABY'S newborn session! LOOK AT MY DAUGHTER! I am in awe of her. She is the strongest little baby you ever did meet, and she has completely stolen our hearts.

It was such an incredible experience to photograph my own baby as a newborn photographer. I had a lot of fun, but I also got a little taste of what our clients go through. Being the mother at a newborn shoot is hard! I found myself apologizing if she wasn't "acting right," which is something I never understood until now. I found myself getting really excited for certain poses, but then getting really sad if things weren't going "how they were supposed to." It was a really helpful thing to go through as a business owner! To all of our mommy clients out there, THANK YOU! Thank you for being you and doing what you do. 

Motherhood is no joke. Getting Jovie to this session seemed like a miracle at the time. I had such a seamless pregnancy that nothing could have prepared me for all that went down during birth and postpartum recovery. I had an epidural (SERIOUS props to mothers who go natural...) that did its job a little too well. It kept rising! It got to the point where I couldn't feel myself breathe and I couldn't swallow (very scary). The doctor's had to take the epidural out, let it die down, and then had to give me a second one at a lower point in my spine. After that, everything went well and Jovie did an amazing job. She really is incredible!

Later in the week, I had to go to the ER because I was having unbearable headaches. I found out that I had a post lumbar puncture. I had to make the hard decision to get some major meds that wouldn't be safe for Jovie while breastfeeding. Nobody could have prepared me for having to choose between my well being and what I felt was best for my daughter. It was a very difficult 24 hours. Luckily, I only had to wait til the next day (after "pumping and dumping") to feed her again. 

To all the mothers out there, you rock. You are beautiful. You are strong. And sometimes, it has to be ok for you to take care of yourselves. Whether your story is similar to mine or not, we all understand that things can get really hard really fast. Today, and every day, I am thanking God for a healthy baby girl and a healthy recovery. Jovie girl, you're everything to me!

Little Rock, AR | Birth Photography | Jovie Kay https://kairosphotography.zenfolio.com/blog/2019/5/little-rock-ar-birth-photography-jovie-kay Well hello, little baby. 

This is my precious niece, Jovie Kay Simpson! Wow wow wow, what a moment to witness. I don't think I'll forget one detail of her arrival into this world. What an incredible honor and blessing to be there in that moment. Melanie was in high spirits the whole time. Even between pushes she was making her nurses laugh and checking in to make sure Jordan and I were doing okay. I was amazed at how strong and brave she was the whole time! 

I really didn't think I'd cry. But the second they pulled her out, I had tears streaming down my face, and I'm not talking pretty-cry. This was a straight up ugly cry. But that's okay, because those were tears of joy. 

Jovie has a full head of dark, curly hair. She has Melanie's eyes, and Jordan's nose, mouth, and chin. She's just perfect in every way. (but I'm not biased, of course). I can't wait to watch this girl grow up in the Lord. She is so very loved by so many people. What an incredible Mother's Day gift for Melanie!

Downtown Little Rock, AR | Studio Newborn Photography | Baby M.J. https://kairosphotography.zenfolio.com/blog/2019/5/downtown-little-rock-ar-studio-newborn-photography-baby-m-j Oh my WORD this little prince had such an amazing newborn session. I am in love with how these turned out! Emanuel and Nakeisha have formed the most perfect little family. Having sweet and patient parents in our studio makes all the difference in the world when trying to pose a newborn. I can't thank you guys enough for making the experience so chill and enjoyable!

This session is a wonderful example of how we can incorporate different props that parents bring. The personal touches are what make each session different than the last! I just love the crown and the personalized bracelet this couple brought for us to use! 

I am grateful that Kairos Photography got to capture such a special time for this family. These moments are ones to cherish!

North Little Rock, AR | Maternity Session | Morgan https://kairosphotography.zenfolio.com/blog/2019/4/north-little-rock-ar-maternity-session-morgan This maternity session was so much fun, and I just loved incorporating all these spring colors! The Old Mill is beautiful this time of year. The only problem is, everybody else knows that, so finding spots without photo bombers was a challenge, but nothing we couldn't handle! I can't wait to meet little Baby B in July!

Little Rock, AR | Fresh 48 Hospital Photography | Emanuel Rodrigues https://kairosphotography.zenfolio.com/blog/2019/4/little-rock-ar-fresh-48-hospital-photography-emanuel-rodrigues Meet Emanuel. The cutest baby you ever did see! Named after his daddy, this little guy sure put his parents on one heck of a ride. Today's blog post serves as a reminder that no matter how much you plan and prepare, sometimes life is going to take you 180 degrees in the other direction! Kairos Photography was supposed to photograph baby Rodrigues's birth, but real life happened and we weren't able to capture his entrance into this world. What is the next best thing? A Fresh 48 Hospital session, of course!

M.J. is only going to be this small once. The first few days of a baby's life are oh so precious, and I am so glad that we got to photograph this little one when he was just 2 days old. Those tiny little details are going to change with each passing day, so having photos done like this will always be valuable to the parents. 

The next time you see M.J. will be at his Newborn Session! We can't wait to get some perfectly posed photos of him and his rockstar parents. Until then, enjoy these adorable photos!

Downtown Little Rock, AR | Studio Cake Smash Session | Beren Lowe https://kairosphotography.zenfolio.com/blog/2019/4/downtown-little-rock-ar-studio-cake-smash-session-beren-lowe This happy camper just turned one, and we got to have our first cake smash session in the studio! Beren is such a fun little boy with a very adventurous spirit. He wanted to know what was in every corner of our studio, and he made mom and dad chase him as he attempted to figure it all out. It may have been hard to keep him still, but it was not hard to capture some adorable photos of him. LOOK at that smile! I couldn't be happier with the results. 

Beren is another one of our Kairos babies who has officially made it through our one-year plan. You can see in the first picture that the same elephant was used at his first session and his last session, just one year apart! What a special memory to have, and what a perfect way to showcase why we, as photographers, do what we do. So much change has happened, but none of it will be forgotten.

Italy | Travel Photography https://kairosphotography.zenfolio.com/blog/2019/4/italy-travel-photography Well this isn't my typical blog post at all! I recently spent 10 days in Italy with my good friend, Tessa. 

We stayed in Scandicci, right outside of Florence. We rented a car and drove out from Florence each day. I would recommend this if you want to see the countryside and the less-touristy side of Italy! Although, they should really require driving classes before handing over car keys in Italy. Yikes. I’m excited to share such a fun experience with you all! 


Days 1 & 2 | FLORENCE

We flew straight into Florence, and started exploring! We visited museums, piazzas, and lots of gelateria’s. And yes, Tessa brought her ukulele to film some pretty epic music videos on our trip, which you'll get to see later. 

I quickly regretted not practicing my Italian beforehand. While my Italian is limited to words like “spaghetti” and “lasagna,” I’m so grateful that Tessa knew enough to get us around! 


We got up before the sun and drove to La Specia where we took a train to the coastal towns of Vernazza and Riomaggiore. According to my phone, I climbed 53 flights of stairs on this day. While I can still feel the pain in my knee a month later, it’s still a beautiful place, with great food and great coffee. 

On our way home from Cinque Terre, it stormed a little bit just before sunset. I predicted that, if the sun decided to peak out, it would be one heck of a sunset. So we made a pit stop in Lucca to walk the wall. And I was right! The sunset just kept getting more and more dramatic in such a short amount of time. Spontaneity success! 


This was my favorite day. We spent the entire day driving around Tuscany, visiting small villages and seeing the countryside. We saw everything from winter snow to spring flowers and all the cypress trees you can imagine. This was a huge perk of having a car, because we were able to pull over anytime we wanted and change our plans as needed.

Yes, the greens were REALLY that green! In fact, I toned down the greens in most of these images because it looked fake. 

Day 5 | SIENA

We woke up in Siena and enjoyed the Palazzo Pubblico before the crowds. Unfortunately, I was sick on this day, so after exploring on my own I found a gelato place (because gelato makes everything better) and went back to the car for a nap. I felt much better after this :) 


THIS right here was the highlight of the trip for me. Tessa spent the day in Assisi while I took the car and drove 2 hours out of the way to this little town of Torano Nuovo. Why is this random town in the middle of nowhere significant?? Well this tiny town is where my ancestors lived!! 

My Nana moved to the states from Torano Nuovo in 1906. I remember visiting her home as a kid and enjoying her homemade pizzelles. What an honor to walk these streets and see my own family’s history! 

Days 7 & 8 | VENICE 

We spent 24 hours in Venice, which means 1 sunrise and 1 sunset, and you know I took advantage of that! We enjoyed yummy food and gondola lessons ;) 

After Venice, we headed back to Florence where we spent our last day. We went to church in Scandicci and visited Harding's Villa for dinner. I didn't take camera pictures on this day, I just soaked up my last moments there! This was the trip of a lifetime, and I still can't believe it happened. Thanks for making it all the way to the end -- what a long post!

North Little Rock, AR | Family Photography | Owen Turns One https://kairosphotography.zenfolio.com/blog/2019/4/north-little-rock-ar-family-photography-owen-turns-one This kid. WHAT A CUTIE!! It is hard to believe that a whole year has passed since I photographed baby Owen's birth. He is actually the first birth that I photographed! What a wild year it has been. I always enjoy photographing this family. They know how to get a photoshoot done! I so appreciate a family who comes prepared and who knows that real life is going to happen while we are taking pictures. With three little ones running around, it is very difficult to get everyone looking at the camera, so you just have to go with the flow and hope for the best! Owen's older brothers actually do a really good job! They must be used to the camera. ;)

The Penrod clan will always have a special place in my heart. Their middle child was my very first newborn session, and this little guy has officially carried out my first entire year plan! WHAT?? I love getting to watch these precious ones grow through my camera lens. It is a blessing beyond what words can describe!

Central Arkansas | Maternity Photography | Jordan and Melanie https://kairosphotography.zenfolio.com/blog/2019/4/central-arkansas-maternity-photography-jordan-and-melanie You wanna know one of the biggest perks to being in a photography business with your sister-in-law who is SUPER talented? This. This right here. I have a built in photographer who is going to be there for all the big stuff. What an honor it was to have Lindsey capture such a precious time in our lives. I am so very blessed. 

It is rare that I get to be in front of the camera! The wind was super crazy during this first set of photos, and Lindsey was really patient while I got incredibly frustrated with my hair. I learned a little bit about what our clients go through! 

I hope that baby Jovie is already getting used to the camera. She is going to be seeing it a lot. But I am so glad Jordan and I got to have one last session while we are still a family of two (besides our fur baby of course). All of these snuggly poses will help me remember and cherish all of the memories we have made so far. Yes, we are going to make new ones that are just as special, but it won't be the same! 

With all of that being said, I cannot wait until May rolls around. Joive Kay, mommy and daddy are ready for you!

Downtown Little Rock, AR | Studio Newborn Photography | Emerson Marrs https://kairosphotography.zenfolio.com/blog/2019/4/downtown-little-rock-ar-studio-newborn-photography-emerson-marrs Sweet baby Emerson is finally getting some attention on our blog today. This family is the sweetest and MAN do they take some pretty pictures! I love how they dressed for this session! They kept it simple with solid colored clothes which reads really well for family portraits. You guys nailed it!

From birth to her newborn session, Emerson has been the most precious baby to work with. She posed really well for her photos! I also have to do some major bragging on her skin. I barely had to do any work to even up her skin tone because it was almost flawless untouched! Girl got some good genes. 

I am already looking forward to seeing this bundle of joy when she turns 6 months. Year plans really are the way to go when thinking about photo sessions for your baby. They change so much with every passing week, and you don't want to miss a single milestone! I have a feeling this one is going to be very smiley as she grows and starts to interact with her parents. I can't wait! Thank you, Marrs family, for letting me capture some life-changing events for you!

I couldn't have asked for a better model. 

As you can see, Rachel will be going to Harding University this fall. I cannot wait to see how much she thrives! Harding is a GREAT place to be. Rachel, thank you for being a radiant daughter of Christ and for showing that off in your senior portraits. I hope you enjoy your sneak peek!

Little Rock, AR | Birth Photography | The Marrs Family https://kairosphotography.zenfolio.com/blog/2019/3/little-rock-ar-birth-photography-the-marrs-family Yet another beautiful baby has made her entrance into the world, and I made it JUST IN TIME to photograph. When I say "just in time," I am not exaggerating. I took my sweet time walking into the hospital at midnight and I uploaded some instagram stories on my way up. Little did I know, Haylee was already pushing! I walked into the room, a nurse said, "This is happening NOW," I had enough time to get my camera on and get in the corner, then baby was out! Haylee did such an incredible job giving birth to sweet Emerson here. Births are an amazing thing to witness!

I am so happy to be sharing this story with you. The next birth that I am at might be MINE! *Insert scared emoji, happy emoji, crying emoji, and then scared emoji again here* You guys will be seeing Emerson's newborn session on the blog soon! I already can't wait!

I have said it once and I will say it a million more times. I love that I can use my gift of photography for my family. Braden really nailed this proposal! He planned out every detail and even had some amazing weather to work with. Gentleman, take note! THIS is how you propose to your girl.

Sweet seester, I love you more than words can express. It was a little difficult photographing through eyes filled with tears, but I wouldn't have it any other way. You are beautiful, lovely, exquisite, and strong. "You are the only one and only you!" God has truly brought you and Braden together and I praise His name for that. I have said, and will continue to say, countless prayers for your bond with each other as you run this race. Braden, welcome to our family! We are so glad that you came into Chelsea's life just at the right time. 

My favorite moments from this engagement? Scroll down until you see Braden hugging the love of his life while Chelsea is a little distracted with that rock on her finger. Makes me laugh every time! I also love how excited and happy they look after Chelsea says yes. Their faces say it all. Congratulations you guys! Lets get this wedding planned!

What To Expect at Your Newborn Session https://kairosphotography.zenfolio.com/blog/2019/2/what-to-expect-at-your-newborn-session

NEWBORN SESSIONS! We have learned that not a lot of new moms really know what is going on when they schedule a newborn session with us. Questions like "What do we wear, how long will it take, and what if I have to feed my baby?" are all commonly asked. We wanted to shed some light on the beauty that is a newborn session. This blog post has oodles of information that will help you properly plan for such an important day in your baby's life. They are only this small ONCE!

1. When should I schedule my newborn session?

You can schedule a session as soon as you know you are pregnant, or you can wait a couple of months until you know the gender and are more sure of the due date. We will mark your due date in our calendar. As soon as your little one arrives, let us know! We like to schedule newborn sessions within 10 days of them being born. A 1-week-old will sleep and pose more easily than a 2-week-old! We want them to still be comfortable in those "womb like" positions. 


2. What if my baby is early/late?

Communication is key! If your bundle of joy arrives early, get a hold of us and we will work things out! We know due dates can be unexpected, and we are always ready to work around that.


3. What do I wear?

In the following images, you will see many of our families choose to show up in simple, white shirts. While you do not have to choose white, we usually suggest that you wear something solid. Bold prints or crazy patterns do not read as well in photos, especially when we want all of the focus to be on your precious new addition to the family! You do not have to show up "matchy matchy," but you defiantly want to color coordinate with your family to make sure all of the colors look good together. For information on what your baby will wear, refer to number 6 below. Also keep in mind that we keep the studio warm to keep the baby is as comfortable as possible. So you might want to wear layers that can be shed, or a change of cooler clothes! 

4. How long does a newborn session last?

This is a very tricky question to answer! We have had a newborn session last as long as four hours, but have also had some last an hour and a half. We usually tell parents to plan on being at our studio for at least 3 hours. Anything less than that, great! But MOST of the time, we find that our sessions can last a while. 


5. What is actually happening at my newborn's session, especially if it takes that long!

Yes, 3 hours is A LOT of time to carve out of your busy schedule, and what if you have a toddler who cannot sit still for more than 10 minutes?? All perfectly normal concerns, but we have some answers for you. 

  • When you first show up, baby will most likely need to feed. Bottle or breastfeeding, that is going to take some time! We like our models to have a full tummy. If you are able to feed baby right before you leave for your session, please do! That will allow us to get right into the picture taking!
  • After baby is fed, we want them to get VERY sleepy. This can by tough because babies seem to know when they are in a new environment with different lighting and noises. In one of our 3 hour sessions, we got all of our images in a 20 minute window! The rest of the time was spent trying to get baby sleepy and comfortable. During this time we will ask you to strip baby of all clothing except the diaper. 
  • When baby is comfortable, we will most likely start with family photos before we lose the attention of that toddler, or before we can't get dad's eyes to stay open because he fell asleep! We also want baby to stay in your arms as long as possible to, again, get them nice and sleepy.
  • Once family shots are finished, dad is welcome to take the siblings out for a treat. Our studio is located in downtown Little Rock, so walking down to the Riverwalk or to a restaurant is easy! Of course, they're welcome to stay as well, but we know it can be quite boring for little ones! 
  • After the family photos, we will get some shots of baby alone in a basket, tin, scale, or whatever we decide to get creative with! 
  • Next, we take your baby to our "newborn posing pillow." This is where most of our time will be spent. Parents can sit on the couch and relax while we do our best to "super pose" your baby and capture those fading details. We like to use white noise and a space heater so that baby will be as comfortable as possible.



6. What should I bring to the session?

We provide all the props and clothing we need already in our studio. When baby is not naked, he/she will be swaddled or wrapped in a cloth or blanket. Unless you have a sentimental outfit that you really want photos in, baby clothes are not necessary. When you show up, do bring baby in loose clothing that will not leave marks on baby (ex. tight socks or a headband that will leave an indent on baby's forehead). We are going to take the clothes off anyway, UNLESS you have a specific request to keep an outfit on. 

We also love it when parents bring personal props for us to work with. If you have any special stuffed animals, crotched items, baby blankets, military gear, or anything else sentimental, bring those with you! We will try and incorporate anything you bring. This is your session and we want to make sure you get the images you want! 



7. How should I prepare my baby beforehand? 

  • Feed your baby before you come, or as soon as you arrive. 
  • Keep your baby awake an hour before you arrive. We realize they will most likely sleep during the car ride, but you can try your best at home before you leave!
  • Be ready to relax and sit while we work with your child! Parents will apologize to us if their baby isn't "acting right," but we are very used to waiting for baby to fall asleep. We do not get annoyed if baby has to keep feeding on and off for an hour! Newborns know what they need, and they need YOU! We will do our best to fit into your baby's schedule and we will ALWAYS be patient.
  • Don't get discouraged if your baby will not let us get the more complicated poses. Sometimes all of the handling and awkward poses are just too much for a 1 week old! It is perfectly normal for us to try a pose only to find it will not work out for your child. SAFETY COMES FIRST! We never want to make your newborn do something he/she is clearly not comfortable doing.


8. What if I have more questions?

Never fear! We are ready to talk to you TODAY about any more questions you may having regarding our newborns sessions. Feel free to contact us! You can Facebook us, DM us on Instagram, call us (leave a message), text us, or email us! Our contact info can be found here on our website or on our other social media pages. Also, one big thank you to all of the families who are featured in this blog! You make us look good!

Little Rock, AR | Newborn Photographer | Kennedy Grace https://kairosphotography.zenfolio.com/blog/2019/2/little-rock-ar-newborn-photographer-kennedy-grace This baby girl was my FIRST session in the new studio space downtown!

Originally, Melanie was going to take lead on this one, and I would be there to help her out. But when Melanie got sick, she couldn't be around this little angel. I (Lindsey) took over for her, and I'm going to be honest, I was nervous. Having never photographed a newborn in this space before, there were just a lot of unknowns. And I was going to have to figure them out without my right-hand man! But as soon as this family walked in the room, my fears melted away. They were such a good family to work with and this baby slept soundly for me! They had a PRECIOUS little foster guy, but I couldn't share his images with you. But I'm excited about what I can share with you!

Nashville, TN | Hospital and Newborn Photography | Louis Frazier https://kairosphotography.zenfolio.com/blog/2019/2/nashville-tn-hospital-and-newborn-photography-louis-frazier Melanie here! Goodness, my heart is full. Meet my nephew, Louis Frazier! I love being a photographer all the time, but I especially enjoy it when I get to use it for my family. This is such a unique gift that I get to share with my loved ones! I was so honored to capture some special memories shortly after Louie Bear was born. We are so grateful for a healthy delivery and a healthy baby.

I am so in love with the quiet moments that happen right after a baby is born. Skin to skin time is an incredible bonding experience between and a mommy and her new baby. I really like getting to creep around the room and take pictures during that time. Just look at the love in Jami's eyes! It is one of those "a picture is worth a thousand words" moments. 

I am already excited to watch Louis grow in this loving home. Cameron and Jami are natural parents! I love you guys so much!

This sweet family is expecting another little blessing very soon. I am so glad they asked me to capture baby's first year! Of course, we started with a dreamy maternity session. It was a little cold, but the Marrs family stuck it out and we got some awesome photographs for them to cherish! 

I really enjoyed working with this family. Little Lillee here is going to be such a good big sister. She already enjoys snuggling with mom's belly, so I can imagine there are going to be some pretty precious moments in her future with baby Emerson. 

We are counting down the days until this crew is no longer a family of 3. Emerson, we are praying hard and awaiting your arrival! Thank you guys for letting me capture your Kairos!

Searcy, AR | 6 Month Photographer | Baby Hudson https://kairosphotography.zenfolio.com/blog/2019/1/searcy-ar-6-month-photographer-baby-hudson Hudson is back on the blog! We took his newborns, 3 months, and now this cutie pie is 6 months old. He's sitting up on his own and gave me some cute little smiles. It was a very cold day, so we made this a quick session, and Hudson handled it like a champ. It'll be another 6 months before he's back on our blog, and we are looking forward to his 1 year session!

Sherwood, AR | Newborn Photographer | Axel https://kairosphotography.zenfolio.com/blog/2019/1/sherwood-ar-newborn-photographer-axel Kim and Kendall were some of our first bride and grooms, back in 2015. I was SO excited when they asked us to photograph their sweet baby's first year! You'll be seeing more of sweet baby Axel this year. We are so excited to watch him grow through photographs!

Sherwood, AR | Family Photography | The Byrd Family https://kairosphotography.zenfolio.com/blog/2019/1/sherwood-ar-family-photography-the-byrd-family The Byrd family spends a lot of time in in this building, so it is only appropriate that we had their family session in the Church building! It WAS freezing outside, so that may have played a role as well. ;) I have been long awaiting this photoshoot! We tried to schedule a session a long time ago, but these sweet people stay super busy and we never got a chance to follow through! Once the new year hit, they contacted me and told me it was going to happen. 

The end of this blog post has an awesome surprise! I got to capture the baptism of Spencer. I am so glad I got to be a part of his life-changing decision!

Sherwood, AR | 6 Month Session | Elsie Carrell https://kairosphotography.zenfolio.com/blog/2019/1/sherwood-ar-6-month-session-elsie-carrell Some of you may have already seen these adorable pictures, but now it is our turn to share some of our favorites from Elsie's 6 month session! From birth to the "almost crawling" stage, Elsie has been such a joy to photograph! Just LOOK at that hair. Her mom made sure to bring the CUTEST outfit and props to play with too, so we are loving how her photos came out. 

You will see this cutie again in another 6 months when she turns one! I am already looking forward to how much she will grow. Thank you, Andrea and Ethan, for sharing your sweet family with us!

It's not often that I find a baby that will smile at the camera on cue. It makes for some precious shots!! This little family of three made my job easy and fun. Enjoy this sneak peek!

Searcy, AR | Senior Photographer | Ryan Simpson https://kairosphotography.zenfolio.com/blog/2019/1/searcy-ar-senior-photographer-ryan-simpson This is our brother, Ryan. I've been looking forward to taking his senior pictures for years! He's finally made it to his senior year and we're so proud of him. We started our shoot at the park, complete with my own personal guitar concert, and ended at his favorite coffee shop Midnight Oil. Congratulations, Ryan!

North Little Rock, AR | Family Photographer | The McNeese Family https://kairosphotography.zenfolio.com/blog/2019/1/north-little-rock-ar-family-photographer-the-mcneese-family I love taking pictures of this family! Little ones bring so much energy to the mix that sometimes it is hard to contain. ;) I have learned to roll with the punches and keep my finger on the shutter no matter what. This pretty much wraps up the family photos that I had the honor or taking during the holidays. Sad to see them go, but Kairos Photography is already ringing in the new year with lots of different sessions. 2019 is going to be a fun one!

Can we take a minute to admire this BEAUTIFUL location?? My jaw just dropped when we walked out onto the back porch of this personal property. I couldn't have asked for a better backdrop.

Sherwood, AR | Newborn Photography | Baby Ronin https://kairosphotography.zenfolio.com/blog/2018/12/sherwood-ar-newborn-photography-baby-ronan This baby boy did such a good job at his newborn session! He had to stop for lots of feedings, but it is hard work getting your picture taken in these weird positions. I got to photograph Ronin's birth, and it is CRAZY how much they change as every week passes. I will always encourage people to have pictures taken of their baby and kids because, especially with hospital and newborn photos, that is the smallest they will ever be! You will want to remember how tiny their hands and feet were before they become smelly and "un-kissable!" 

We are excited to share these with you as we get close to entering into a new year! We already can't wait for all of the babies we will meet in 2019!

Daisy Mae | Adoption Finalization https://kairosphotography.zenfolio.com/blog/2018/12/daisy-mae-adoption-finalization We have another very special blog to share today of my niece, Daisy. This one happened about 6 months after the pictures you saw on Monday. This one is where Daisy officially became a Frazier.

I just love how you can see so much joy in every single person’s face! It was such a happy day and I am honored that I got to freeze these moments in time. After the actual finalization occurred, Daisy’s great-aunt Bobbie hosted a “gotcha” party at her house. I didn’t include many pictures from that time because I was a little busy enjoying the amazing food and company, but we got to pray over Shawn, Katie, and Daisy once again to thank God for the blessing of adoption.

The second half of this post is Daisy's 6 month session. How sweet is she?? I swear, those eyes are prettier in person than these pictures could ever show. It is crazy to think that in another 6 or so months, my sweet niece will be 1! I cannot wait to witness the change and growth that she goes through. She is one blessed little baby, as are her parents.

Love you guys so very much!

Daisy Mae Frazier | A Story of Patience https://kairosphotography.zenfolio.com/blog/2018/12/daisy-mae-frazier-a-story-of-patience “Adopt the pace of nature, her secret is patience.”

This is a very special blog post. Meet my niece, Daisy Mae Frazier. She is truly an answered prayer. This past Thursday, her adoption was finalized and she legally became a part of our family, even though this precious angel has had a place in our hearts for a very long time.

Shawn and Katie struggled with infertility for several years until God put it in their hearts to adopt. They waited for Daisy for two and a half years and finally got The Call in May. As you can see in these pictures, it was a long awaited day that had their closest friends and family crying and laughing. In the second half of this post, you will see some beautiful newborn photos that I got to take with the help from my sister, Chelsea Frazier. She is a great assistant and I love that we got to take our niece's photos together! 

I want to say a special thank you to Laura Michael with Laura Beth Michael Design. She does these amazing watercolors that you will see at the end of this blog post. I contacted her hoping she could create something magical for my sister-in-law, and she customized one of her amazing dahlia watercolors to fit our specific situation. Thank you so much for such a unique gift and for being flexible! 

Later this week, I will be posting some pictures from Daisy's finalization day and some 6 month photos that I had the HONOR of taking. 

We praise God for Daisy!

Little Rock, AR | Birth Photography | The Andrews https://kairosphotography.zenfolio.com/blog/2018/12/little-rock-ar-birth-photography-the-andrews The Andrews family added another beautiful member to their clan last week. I had the honor of photographing this little one's birth! Photographing births is hard work but is so rewarding. It has a whole new meaning now too since I am expecting my own little miracle! 

I can only pray that I handle labor even as half as well as Krystal did. Her kind and gentle personality carried through into her labor, and it was such a joy to witness. I am already so excited to capture baby's first year milestones. Nicolle Fletcher is the doula in these photos, and this is the second time I have had the pleasure of working with her. I could say so many wonderful things about her, but I will keep it simple and say that she is extremely good at her job! I love love LOVE watching her interact with new moms.

You will see this baby again on our blog in a couple of weeks when we get to take some dreamy newborn photos!

Searcy, AR | Aryk and Becca https://kairosphotography.zenfolio.com/blog/2018/12/searcy-ar-aryk-and-becca We had the honor of photographing Aryk and Becca's wedding in May of 2017. When couples either don't want an engagement session or, in this case, already had one done, we try and encourage them to do a 1-year anniversary shoot instead since the session is already included in our package! What we DON'T take into account is that sometimes newlyweds move away, which makes it difficult to schedule a session. This sweet couple made it to Searcy for the holidays, so we finally got to take some pictures that were far overdue. 

I LOVE that the Sullivans brought their puppy, Bear. We enjoy fur baby involvement and Bear was one of the most well behaved dogs ever! His ears are my favorite! I am so glad that we got to have this session and that the timing worked out well. Enjoy your super cute pictures!
