I first met Melinda at my son and daughter in law's wedding shower earlier this summer. I was taking some pictures of the shower and she and I talked about her need for some family photos and a photograph she needed for her own business website. I gave her my card and we finally got the chance to get together and shoot these images at our favorite place, the Buffalo National River, near Ponca, AR. The fall colors were a little past their peak, but it still looked beautiful that day. I had a great time visiting with Melinda, Skyler and Rufus and capturing these images of them. The popular Steel Creek access is one of my favorite places to photograph people and you can see why. The beauty of nature is boundless here and what it does for your soul cannot be described in words. Here is a sneak peek from our session. Enjoy!
