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:
