Hero Half Marathon | NWA Portrait Photographer


Once again, it’s been entirely too long since I’ve updated this blog. Things have been good around here. I bought a house this summer, traveled to Africa for 7 weeks earlier this year, and have generally been enjoying life. No complaints.

I decided I was going to buckle down and finally update here because I wanted to post some photos from a recent shoot I did for the Hero Half Marathon in Fayetteville, Arkansas. My best friend from childhood and some of my other elementary/high school comrades decided a couple of years ago to put together this race to benefit the local fire departments, and of course, I wanted to help how I could. It’s a great community event — a number of firefighters run the race each year in their full gear. Hot, heavy, heroic. If they can run it in gear, you can at least walk it without gear!

TODAY is the last day to register to run in the race. If you’re a runner, you won’t want to miss it.
