A few days ago, we arrived home from a whirlwind trip to NW Arkansas.  I must have been crazy to leave in the midst of my busiest time of year, but there were so many fun and amazing perks to the trip, I just couldn’t say no.  And thank goodness I didn’t!  Quite honestly, I ended up having an amazing time, in a beautiful location, visiting with old (young!) friends, shooting, and spending time (away from computers and cell phones) with my husband, two boys and one of our dogs at beautiful Devil’s Den.

The trip started out as a visit/trade out shoot with a friend from college, who I reconnected with via social networking sites a couple of years ago.  Funny thing, we both ended up being photographers and over the last year, it’s been so fun getting to know each other again and talk about our businesses.  I also ended up being able to coordinate a session with a friend from Kansas, of her two beautiful daughters, but that’s another blog post to come!

So, on to the good stuff.  I have to show off the images I shot of my beautiful friend (inside and out!),  Bobbie Yocum of Yocum Photography.  If you are looking for a fabulous Fayetteville, Sprindale, or NW Arkansas Photographer, she is your girl!  I had such a great time shooting her family session, at a to-die-for location that I happened to discover on my way back to Devil’s Den one morning.  The foliage was amazing there, plus there were several abandoned little buildings on site, gorgeous green grass and what I didn’t know when I first saw the location, a mega light trap.  What is a light trap, you ask?  A ‘light trap’ is a small pocket found in extremely rare places on earth that traps totally glorious, radiant, fall-on-your-knees-and-cry-of-happiness, amazing light.  Okay, I totally made that definition up, but I do hope it hammers my point home.  🙂  Have a look at what we ended up with:

Bobbie, her sweet husband Kevin, and their gorgeous daughter, *B*…

Some images shot in the above mentioned “light trap”, I love these of Bobbie and her baby girl:

Some of Bobbie and Kevin… I *heart* these…

All together again:

And finally, as we were running out of light, a little use of off camera flash (I love the background!!!):

Many thanks to Bobbie for shooting my own family photos as well.  What I have seen so far, I just adore!  I will try to share some of them here soon  🙂  Lots of other blogging to come — I have so many good shares coming up, just need to get my feet back underneath me, whew!

Until next time,

November 18, 2010 - 4:04 pm Bobbie Yocum - I could not wait to get home to see this post! I KNEW it was going to be great!!! And I was CORRECT!!!!! I am just thrilled with every single shot! I wish you could have seen my actual reaction.. I was screaming (pretty high pitched I must add), clapping and of course smiling ear to ear! I was so excited to see me with my lovies!!! These images bring joy to my heart in so many ways; I wish I could put it into words how precious each one is and how special they are to me. I can not wait to print HUGE prints and display them in my home!!! I could sit here and look at them all day... I realize even more when I see them how much I love my husband and my daughter.. there seriously are no words... Thanks again Tammy for capturing these for me to cherish for the rest of MY life and for the years after that.... ((((LOVE)))) -Bobbie
