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!

Hudson | Dumas, Arkansas Newborn Photographer

I had the honor of photographing Hudson a few weeks ago, and his daddy and I just so happen to go way back.

Back in my teenage years, I was a hard core softball player, and so was Katie Puryear.  We played in the Dumas league together pretty much our entire lives.  Always running around playing and attending every game was Katie’s little brother, Calvin.  When he wasn’t in the stands cheering on Katie, he was on the field himself.  Calvin was quite the baseball player.  Although he’s a few years younger than me, I can remember him dominating on the ball field.  I have no doubt Calvin will have his little boy on the field as soon as he can walk.

Calvin went on to marry Kathleen, and together they have brought a sweet, calm spirited little boy into the world.  I didn’t know Kathleen prior to their newborn session, but just in the short time of working together it’s obvious that she and Calvin are a perfect match.  They are both so in love with this little boy, and I can’t wait to watch him grow up on the ball field.

Meet Hudson Puryear:

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!

Easton is one! | Dumas, Arkansas Child Photographer

My sweet great-nephew, Easton Bo, turned a year old last month!  I cannot believe that a whole year has passed since this little guy was born!  In case you didn’t get a chance to see his hospital/newborn session blog post back then, click here to read it!

Easton is a huge ham and loves to grin and get into things non-stop!  I get videos from his mama all of the time of him digging in her cabinets and throwing toys everywhere.  He’s so funny because in the midst of getting into trouble for digging things out that he shouldn’t be,  he will flash a big smile that he knows will get him out trouble for it!  To say he’s a huge mama’s boy is definitely and understatement!  This little boy absolutely loves his mama!

His birthday theme was absolutely adorable!  I love the plaids, wood and pines!  Easton has a huge sweet tooth too, so he had no trouble at all digging into his adorable cake made by his Nana (Patty Morris)!

Take a look at this sweet baby boy’s smash cake session!
