Emily | McGehee, Arkansas Senior Photographer

If a season could ever be described as ‘yummy’, then fall would be it.  Between the warm tones of red, orange and yellow on the trees, the crisp air, nighttime bonfires and football season, you can pretty much find something to love.  OH, I apologize to the hunters….we can’t forget hunting season!!

Anyway, Emily took full advantage of all things fall, and picked out literally the perfect outfits to accompany the settings.  BRB- currently dying at how gorgeous she is in these…

Gage | Dumas, Arkansas Senior Photographer

Gage is a senior at Dumas High School this year, and if there ever was a ‘good ol country boy’ around, he is it.

He wanted to include his dog (which is family & you can’t tell him any different!), his truck, and football.  He’s pretty good with a guitar, so we had to work that in too!  We also had to do our traditional picture at the Dumas Police Station since his grandpa has worked there for years.  I say traditional, because we started this at his moms request with his older brother, Tristan.

I love them all!  Here are favorites:

Christian | Star City, Arkansas Senior Photographer

I know you’ve heard talk before about people being a natural born athlete.  Some people just don’t have to work hard at it.  They can pick up any kind of ball or racket or glove, and after a quick lesson and a few throws, kicks or swings, they’ve got it.  Christian is one of ‘those’.

He loves basketball, as you will see below, but surprisingly to me, he said soccer is one of his favorite sports to play.  He has only been playing a few years, but he’s hoping to be able to play in college!  Let me just say, also, that although he loves sports, his academics are his main focus.  Christian plans to attend Harding University in the fall.  He has some big plans for his future, and I must say, after meeting his mama, I can see where he gets his inspiration.

I can’t make you wait any longer to see these….

Here are Christian’s favorites:

Abbie | McGehee, Arkansas Senior Photographer

If there ever was a contagious smile, this girl has it.  Abbie can light up a room when she walks in.  She can also pull off a perfect ‘serious’ look- which is harder than you think!  She chose the perfect location just outside of Dermott for her session.  Gorgeous barns, pecan trees, and a front porch full of southern charm….a photographers dream!

I photographed Abbies older brother, Griffin, a few years back when he was a senior, and (although guys don’t like to hear this lol!) he’s just as photogenic as she is.  To me, it is the highest honor to have a family come back to you time after time for portraits.   That tells and shows you that you’ve done something right ❤

SO without making you wait any longer, here are some of Abbie’s favorites from her session:

Alex | Monticello, Arkansas Senior Photographer

I love it in life when things come full circle.  Unknowingly, this happened for me with Alex.  She was chosen as a member of my 2020 Street Team, so when we met at her meeting to plan out her sessions, I found out just who she was!

Delta had a wonderful principal when I was in school by the name of Miles Lowe.  His wife, Mrs. Peggy, was our school counselor.  There wasn’t a basketball game that I remember going to that he wasn’t there.  He was a great example of someone who loved their job and their school.  He was stern, but he was also forgiving.  Mrs. Peggy was wonderful as well and was always there to help.  She always had a smile on her face!  She suddenly passed not long after I graduated high school, and it was a loss we all felt.  I often wondered how Mr. Lowe was doing since I haven’t seen him in several years.

At this meeting, I found out that Alex is his granddaughter!  I can’t tell you how excited I was to hear this, and to be able to catch up with them on how he was doing now.  Everything made sense once I found out, because Alex is a lot like them the more I get to know her.  She was blessed with wonderful parents, but even more so with wonderful grandparents (on both sides!)

Alex chose to do our two season senior package, which included a full summer session and a full fall session.  They were both so much fun!!  Wait until you see her grandfathers car that makes an appearance in her fall session….just wow!

She probably gets tired of hearing this from me, but I always tell her how gorgeous her skin is.  Those freckles!!  Gosh, I pray she never wears anything to cover them up!

Here are favorites from both of Alex’s sessions ❤

 

Arshaan | Dumas, Arkansas Senior Photographer

Here’s a little sunshine for your rainy day 🙂

Arshaan is so clever and witty.  He’s crazy talented and can play the drums like no other! He was blessed to get his dream car last year, and she even has her own instagram page!  She likes taking selfies 😉

I had the pleasure of taking his sisters senior portraits several years back, so it’s always an honor when parent’s come back as a repeat client!  I’m thankful I get the opportunity to serve them again!

Here are their favorites of Arshaan!

Maddie | Dumas, Arkansas Senior Photographer

Maddie & her mom were SO much fun!  We talked and laughed pretty much the entire session.  It was pretty neat to hear that she knew my Aunt Carolyn (the one who mentored me as a photographer- she’s a professional photographer herself!) and that she had done pictures for her before!  It’s a small world, for sure!

Maddie had SO many gorgeous shots, and although it was almost painful (lol!!), she was able to narrow it down to these absolute favorites:
