Just call me Joprah, I made a list of my favorite things!

1. Discussing Arkansas Politics over a glass of red wine with good friends.

2. Going outside and exploring Arkansas in the springtime.

Momma's unkillable roses

3. Watching Rachael make butter. Yes, she made butter. Also, she let me make my own flavored butter. I added nutmeg, chocolate flakes, brown sugar and cocoa powder. It seemed a bit odd at first but I was like a kid in a candy store and it actually turned out to be pretty delicious!

Homemade Butter!

4.  50% off candles at Hobby Lobby. I found one that I loved; it smells like old lady perfume and funeral homes. It’s completely fine if you are freaked out by that last statement but there is no other way to describe the smell and I LOVE it. Also, it’s called “Springtime inParis”. Hey-a girl can pretend!

ohh-la-la

5. Spending time with family and friends. That’s something I love all the time, but its nice to be reminded that you have people who love and care for you in the world. It’s the bees knees.

6. YOU! Big sister and I started this whole blog thing on a whim and we really do appreciate getting to share things with others, feel free to share with us and let us know how we are doing!

p.s. I know you aren’t supposed to give yourself a nickname but I’m digging the whole “Joprah” thing, this NEEDS to catch on!

 

Sweet Baby Will April 11, 2011

Welcome to the world Sweet baby Will!!

 

I had the privilege of working with the Phillips family this weekend and their new arrival, William Blake. Talk about precious, look at those lips!!

At six days old, Will is already a professional. I love the way he posed himself in such a modest position:

He was such a sweetheart the whole day and, of course, I was working with such a loving and supportive family so overall it was a great shoot!

Also, I think I would get my butt kicked by a two-and-a-half year old if I didn’t mention how adorable his big sister Avery is.  Go Avery Go Avery Go!

Let us introduce ourselves…. April 9, 2011

Filed under: General,J.Fairchild Photography,Jenuine Memories — memorykeepersisters @ 10:11 pm

We are two sisters born and raised in rural Arkansas. We were taught to love the Lord and our family (in that order) and that is what we strive to do every day.

 

In 2005,  Jennifer began making scrapbooks to save the memories that were precious to her. Our mother at the time, was near the end of her long battle with cancer. There were many small battles along the way, she won some and she lost some. Her symbol, the butterfly, is something that Jennifer holds dear to her heart. When you see it in her work, it represents our mother.

 

Jodie has always had a passion for photography.  She received a Nikon N55 as a gift for her 16th birthday and immediately began capturing memories of her friends and family.  The ability to look at a photograph and immediately remember exactly where you were at that time is something that has fascinated her for years. More recently she has purchased a NikonD3000 and she’s on the prowl to capture every memory she can.

 

The message we would like to send out to the world is this:

The time to take pictures of yourself is now. Take photographs of yourself and your family. Document the time you have in this world. And above all, show it to your family and friends.
