Jenna | Dumas, Arkansas Senior Photographer

Jenna was so fun to work with!  When she smiles, her eyes just sparkle.  I told her that if she had a theme song to her session, it would be ‘Girls just want to have fun!’!
Check out her favorites!

Mallory | Dumas, Arkansas Senior Photographer

This girl.  She has that ‘model’ look, and that southern hometown girl charm.  I told her she’s my little Kendall Jenner- to me she favors her a lot!  We had so much fun trekking all around Desha county for Mallory’s senior session.  Although everyone agrees that we love them ALL, these are her best of the best!

This, my friends, is what perfection looks like!

Shelby | Dumas, Arkansas Senior Photographer

Blonde hair, blue eyes, and dimples.  Shelby can put a check mark by all 3.  She grew up close to the water, so we made sure to incorporate that in her session, since that’s just who she is.  I bet you’ll never guess where she plans to attend college next fall 🙂

Here are Shelby’s favorites

Anna | Dumas, Arkansas Senior Photographer

I’ve known Anna’s family for several years, so I can’t tell you how excited I was when they called to book her senior session with me.  She’s so athletic- she plays both softball and basketball- and gives 110% to her teams.  I think we got a great mix of both her ‘girly’ side, along with showcasing her sports.

Here are their favorites, that are going in a custom designed book!

Coffee Shops & College

With their  Senior year coming to an end, I decided to do one last shoot with my 2018 Model Team.  This was sort of like their ‘send off’ shoot, and a way for me to get in one last official good-bye.  These girls are scattering off all across the state in the fall, so I wanted them to be able to have pictures with their friends and also representing the college they will attend starting in August.

There’s no better place to gather right now than at the new coffee shop in town, Monticello Coffee Company.  This place is amazing.  Not only is the inside completely remodeled from what the former building used to be, but their hot/cold drink & food menu is top-notch.  There’s no need to drive all the way to Little Rock for one of those ‘big name’ coffee drinks when you can hop right over to Monticello and have one locally.  Seriously, if you haven’t tried them, you must….immediately.

SO- this group of amazing girls came glammed up with their future college t-shirt on and we had a blast.  They sipped on their homemade lemonade drinks and lounged all around the shop.  I loved hearing their excitement about all of the upcoming changes in their life.  If there’s ever been anyone prepared and ready for change, it’s these girls.  Of course, when I asked what they look forward to most after graduation, you can just about guess what they said…….

SENIOR TRIP!

I had so many amazing seniors last year that I was blessed to get to know and to photograph.  If I could share with them one piece of advice that they can carry throughout their life from here on out, it would be 100% to pray and to trust.  Whenever a difficult decision arrives and you don’t know what path to take, PRAY for God’s guidance.  He will always answer, in His perfect timing.  If/Whenever that outcome isn’t necessarily what you had hoped and prayed for, TRUST that God’s plan is perfect and things always work out in the end.

I love each and every one of ‘my seniors’, and I’ll miss seeing them around this fall.  I hope they always remember me and the fun we had at their sessions.  My ultimate goal with every senior is to make their session an experience they will never forget, and to give them 110% in everything I do.  I pray they felt that.

CLASS OF 2018, HERE’S TO AN AMAZING FUTURE!!

Alden | Dumas, Arkansas Senior Photographer

“Nothing makes a young woman more beautiful,

than the belief that she is beautiful.”

-Sophia Loren

 

Alden only had one specific request when planning her senior session, and that was to include her cousin, Dane.

So that’s what we did.

After finishing some fun in the studio with beauty lighting and a fan gently blowing her loose curls around, we loaded up to do the outdoor portion of the session.  The first stop was to see Dane.  His grave was full of things he loved, specifically regarding duck hunting.  I know Alden’s mind was flooded with memories as we sat there.  I can’t imagine losing a good friend, who is also family, at such a young age.  I could see a mixture of emotions in her face in that short time- mostly sadness- but also a sense of proudness peeking through some smiles.  Proud that, although he physically isn’t here with us on this earth, she was able to show how much she loved and cared for him by including him in such a special time of her life, something she was documenting.  It was a humbling part of the session that I’m truly honored to have had the opportunity to be a part of.

Once we finished there, we headed to Arkansas City to continue.  Alden’s outfits were perfect, down to each accessory she picked to go with them.  She has the best girl-next-door look….the kind that when I had her smiling at me and had her look off, she would give a natural little shy laugh, and my camera shutter couldn’t keep up fast enough.

It was a beautiful evening for a beautiful girl and these are just a few of the many favorites from her session:
