I am a wife to a handsome bearded guy and mother to way too many rescue animals. I secretly wish I could sing and dance, so you might even catch me bustin’ a move at your reception. Skinny Pop is my favorite snack food ever. Spanx, button down shirts, and gluten are my life-long enemies. My current favorite thing to shoot is emotion! I am a photojournalist at heart and I just love candid, unplanned moments. I kinda hate posing people for portraits. I would much rather tell you to sing or dance, or tell me a funny story so I can catch you acting naturally. Or just let it all happen and capture it as it passes. Before I die I really want to visit Italy, Scotland, and Beyonce!
But you can call me Buie. Everyone calls me Buie . . . even Cara. One of my main goals in life is to make as many animal friends as possible. If it has fur or feathers then we are basically best friends. When I'm not feeding or playing with our menagerie, I like to create and to learn - from history to philosophy to religion to languages; I love it. People fascinate me. I also love movies. The more epic the better. I will completely nerd out with you over our favorite movies or series. I'm a huge dork and I gave up fighting it a long time ago. If you catch me at home I'm probably reading or watching something, but either way I'll have a ball of fur in my lap.
I'm Cara Beth!
In 2008 Brent and Cara Beth lived in Little Rock, Arkansas, and were quietly working on careers that had nothing to do with photography. Monday through Friday they worked 9-5's and on the weekends they hung out with friends, got caught up on household chores, and felt that sense of dread every Sunday night because they had to go to work in the morning.
But Cara had a camera.
Cara had always loved photography. It was a hobby for her. Anyone that knew Cara, knew her as the girl with the camera. And eventually, it happened: one of Cara's co-workers asked her to photograph her wedding.
Cara agreed and roped Brent into coming along. As soon as the day was over and they got in the car to head home, they looked at each other and said, "We are NEVER doing that again."
Then there was another one. And then another one.
But since the last wedding, something BIG had happened.
Brent saw a photograph of his grandfather as a young man for the first time, and Cara suffered a death in her family - her grandfather.
