The Trudo Family || Northwest Arkansas Photographers

You guys. We LOVE photographing big families! It is so fun seeing everyone in the family come together and interact, laugh, play, and just have a blast! The Trudo’s were just that. They were such a fun group!

We were overwhelmed with how cute those kids were! It took me back to my childhood, running around with my cousins and playing with my grandpa. These kids LOVE their grandpa, and it shows! If we needed one of the kids to smile, cue Grandpa! If we needed someone to entertain the kids so we could get photos of just mom and dad, cue Grandpa! If we wanted some quality entertainment, cue Grandpa!

We remembered taking Craig and Whitney’s family photos when we were first starting our business. Their kids were so tiny!! We were also excited to meet Kimberly and her sweet family! It is always the best experience meeting new people and making new friends through this business of ours, and even spending time with long-time friends who trust us to take their family photos!

Trudo Family, it was an absolute BLAST working with you!

Here are some of our favorites from their session:

The Pattens at Lake Atalanta || Northwest Arkansas Photographers

Oh the Pattens. HOW WE LOVE THEM! Fun fact: Cindy took their fresh 48 photos when Audrey was born! And here we are taking their family photos now with not just one, but TWO little additions to their family! This is our favorite thing about what we do. We get to watch the people we love grow. We get to see the first moment when they become parents, seeing that overwhelming excitement and love. We get to see them a year later at their baby’s one year photos, smashing cake into their face. We get to see them announcing their next baby and snuggling that new addition a few months later! It is such a happy blessing to witness that!

It was so fun seeing Audrey running around, pointing at the ducks and fish in the water, and TALKING! The last time we saw her, taking her baby brothers newborn pictures, she was saying a few words, and here we are a few months later and she had SO much to say! Her little voice was so sweet and we loved following her along the lake.

These are some of our favorite sessions when we can get some great candid moments! A lot of parents show up to their session so nervous and stressed that their kids aren’t going to sit still or that they aren’t going to cooperate and we are here to tell you: those are the best kinds of kids!! We love watching your kids laugh and play. We love watching them run and giggle. We even love watching them scream and try to break away when we attempt a posed photo. WE LOVE ALL OF IT. We love seeing you being you. These are the things you are going to want to remember. And we feel so honored that WE get to capture that for you!

We had a blast spending time with the Patten family again! We look forward to more memories with them!

Here are some of our FAVES from their session at Lake Atalanta:

Brody's Senior Session at The Berry Farm || Northwest Arkansas Photographers

Oh you guys. What can we say about Brody? He is probably the COOLEST guy ever. We had so much fun photographing his senior pictures earlier this fall. He was such a trooper, putting up with all of us girls who were trying to make him laugh and were totally making fools of ourselves in the process!

We went to the Berry Farm which is located in Centerton, AR. This place was SO beautiful and we felt like their country farm vibe was perfect for Brody. Brody is a team roper, which is such a crazy cool talent to have! We were just “oo-ing” and “ahh-ing” while he was doing his thing, we almost forgot we were supposed to be photographing it all! We were also able to capture some cleaner looks next to the large white barn! We loved the mixture of rustic and modern at this unique place!

Brody’s outfits were our favorite! We loved his cowboy hats and cowboy boots! We’re so excited to see the things Brody does! He’s so tough and sweet and has SO much potential! Congratulations on graduating soon, Brody!! We love you oh so very much!!

Here are a few of our favorites from his session:
