Boston & Beckham | Dumas, Arkansas Child Photographer

These two boys top the list of favorite clients to photograph.  I think it’s because they remind me so much of my boys.  Boston is such a laid back, easy-going big brother.  He is so good with Beckham, watching him to make sure he doesn’t get into anything he shouldn’t.  Although she doesn’t, Allison could totally prop her feet up and relax for a little bit with Boston around lol!  He’s that good with his little brother.  Beckham is your typical busy-bodied toddler, running wild and free-spirited.  His little grin can melt you in a split second.  When I walked in to their home to do their session that day, he immediately grabbed my hand and took me around their house showing me things.  He is such a sweet baby, and a pretty one at that (he is still little so we mama’s can call our baby boys pretty at that age)!

Allison and Gage, you are truly blessed.

Averi turns one! | Dumas, Arkansas Child Photographer

This sweet little firecracker has a birthday next month, so why not have a red, white, and blue themed birthday party?!  She is the sweetest, cuddliest (if that’s not a word, I made it a word just for her lol) little girl and will steal your heart in a split-second!  She knows how to use those sparkling blue eyes to charm ya!  Also, it was such an honor to photograph 4 generations of Files/Hughes women!  It’s a photo that will be cherished every time they see it in their home ❤

Happy (early) Birthday baby girl!

Zayden | Dumas, Arkansas Child Photographer

Y’all.  They do not get any cuter than this.

Zayden and his mommy came in to have ‘Mommy and Me’ Portraits made (which I applaud her for because so many mama’s put this off and they always end up regretting it!).  He smiled at me the entire time!  He never would let me hold him, but he would run to me and get within 6 inches, stop, show the biggest 4-toothed smile he could, then run back to his mama.  This is what a happy baby and a good nap beforehand looks like:

Laken is one! | Dumas, Arkansas Child Photographer

This sweet little ball of energy came to the studio last week for her first birthday session!  She officially turned one yesterday, but her mama and aunt wanted to have these done in time to display at her birthday party.  She is the sweetest little social butterfly!  Her little eyes just sparkle, and if you mention her daddy she goes nuts!  That little girl has her mama’s heart and her daddy is wrapped around her little finger.  I can’t forget to mention her Aunt Cristan…she’s just as smitten over Laken as anyone could be!  We had so much fun and I think Laken’s little personality shined in her portraits.

Happy Birthday sweet Laken!

Canon | Dumas, Arkansas Child Photographer

Canon and his mommy came to the studio a few weeks ago to have portraits made and he was awesome!  This little boy never let us sit still, but his little personality is just precious. He stayed busy exploring and running around, but at the same time would stop and love on his mama for a minute.  He’s definitely all boy with a big heart for his mama.  Here are Leeza’s favorites!

Baxter & Lyla | Dumas, Arkansas Child Photographer

I’ve had the opportunity to take Baxter’s portraits for several years now, and it’s such a blessing to be able to photograph his little sister as well!  These two are both full of energy and didn’t slow down the entire session.  I just followed along and watched these two have a ball, taking their portraits in the process.  I love how they turned out!  These are some of mama’s favorites:
