At ARP we LOVE to create Wall Designs!!! This Wall Design is above the couch in our lobby and it's a new fave! It has 13 Gallery Wraps in it and has multiple finishes on the prints. This is a great idea for a FAMILY Session and we even have room to add in! LOVE LOVE LOVE IT!

Allison, I like these, too! What adorable kids! :) You are a photographer genius, and I am so honored that you would put our family on your wall. Of course, all those are our favorites. While we were looking at it I thought I could still be happy ordering about 5 more that we didn't get. It's fun to know that day of fun was captured and will live on your wall for a while!

This looks fabulous but of course the photographer's talent and the beauty of the subjects help! LOVE IT!!!

That's very sensational. Putting family photos in your sala will be very nice, it only shows how happy you are in family and how you value those times.

About a week ago we had some special visitors from The Commercial Appeal : Fredric Koeppel and Stan Carroll. We spent a long time with these guys going over what makes ARP work. Talk, talk, talk - and you know I didn't have much trouble with that BUT Jeff had to talk too! Our behind-the-scenes guy had to step out into the spotlight so we could hear his version of "our story."

Fredric and Stan were also there for a session! I photographed Caroline Donato's 2nd session in our Baby Plan which usually takes place around 8-10 months ( one of my favorite stages) She of course was PERFECT. Laughing and cooing exactly when I needed her to. I do look kinda silly in these images, but if you've ever had a Session with me then it's no surprise to you that I act a little wack-a-doo :) But our goal is to laugh and have fun so I had to accomplish that even if people were watching.

We are so honored that the CA chose to feature US. We love working together and ARP would NOT be what it is today without all of our wonderful clients, our amazing staff and Jeff by my side. 

It has been roller coaster of fun and every week I feel like we just jump back on. We can't wait to see what the future holds for ARP

A special thanks to the the ladies of Hemline Theory Creative Marketing for pushing our name out there! 

So crazy and fun to see this in the paper!!!! We are very honored :)

The story is great! First saw it this morning when Britton forwarded it to me after one of his friends had e-mailed him saying, "isn't this your cousin?" Good news travels fast :)

I love watching your babies grow :) 

This little princess just finished up our Baby Plan and it has been so much fun to see how she's changed over the year. I can't believe a year has already come and gone!!!! {Our Baby Plan consists of 3 sessions and I love it if they can take place close to 4 months, 8 months and 12 months.}

She obviously has a thing for pink :) and I look how these curls have multiplied!!!! I have to say she is a very expressive baby girl and her personality big big BIG!!!! 

THANK YOU  for choosing us to tell your story little Miss M.E.S.!!!

Hugs & cookies,

A :)
