SO WHO IS “ANDREW & CONNIE” ANYWAY?
Andrew is the photographer and Connie is the coordinator. Yes, you get the two of us for the price of one! Together we are a Fayetteville based, husband and wife photography team specializing in Lifestyle Family Portraits.
We met in the summer of 2007 while attending a conference in Dallas. We were engaged later that same year and got married in the summer of 2008. About a year and a half later in 2010, our son Connor came along.
Photography is a big part of our lives! Andrew loves to chase the beautiful golden light of the sunrise/sunset. And Connie has the organization skills to help complete the picture! Together, we have been serving families in NW Arkansas and The Ozarks professionally since 2012.
Why specialize in family portraits? There are all types of photographers working at all different skill levels. But not every photographer is prepared to ‘shoot’ every type of event. It’s for this reason we specialize in family portraits. Because we have a passion for the family!
Our style and approach is simple, classic, and true. Our greatest talents are the ability to mix with any class of people and getting nervous subjects to relax in front of the camera. Our very outgoing and social little boy occasionally accompanies us on photo shoots!
I make popcorn the old fashioned way — on the stove with butter and salt.
My wife is worth more than all the silver and gold — she’s my diamond and example that there are people with pure motives in this world.
We make homemade pizza on Friday nights. The pizza is great, but the family time is priceless!
I love chasing the gorgeous golden light of the sunrise & sunset. I cannot get enough of them!
My son is my legacy for the future. He represents all that is good in the world.
I love a great carrot cake. Bake one for me and I will do almost anything for you.
My life has incredible purpose — otherwise my whole existence has been a waste of time.
We believe in working hard for our dreams. Because no one “owes” us anything, least of all for free.
When I’m driving and my favorite song comes on the radio — I roll the windows down, turn the volume up, and sing along as loud as I can! Because we only go around this crazy merry-go-round called “life” once!
My faith in Jesus is at the core of all I am and all I do. I would not be where I am today without it.
Connie doesn’t like to write about herself, so this is as much as I could get out of her so far…
I love to be around children, especially special needs kids. It’s everything I dream of and live it out daily in my daytime job. When I'm not working with Andrew on the photography business, I’m a full-time mom and pediatric speech/language therapist specializing in feeding and swallowing disorders in special needs kids. My phone is full of photos I rarely print (I need to get all the photos off my phone — I’m trying to do better…) and our son eats peanut butter and jelly or Mac & Cheese almost every day!
