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…

Emily, McGehee High School Class of ’20

Katie | Dumas, Arkansas Senior Photographer

Katie, a senior at Star City,  has the brains AND the beauty!  She is planning to become a doctor after graduating and has spent countless hours shadowing a local physician just so she can make sure it’s what she wants to do.  Talk about determined!  I definitely want someone like her treating me or my family, because people like her are who are dedicated and truly want to be the best in their field so that they can save countless lives.  Katie, I cannot wait to see what your future holds, because I know it’s going to be BIG!

Check out Katie’s gorgeous portraits!


Savannah | Dumas, Arkansas Maternity Photographer

This little mama absolutely glows!  She and her boyfriend are expecting a baby girl in a few short weeks!  The end of a pregnancy tends to be the shortest AND longest part of the entire process.   It’s easy to get consumed in preparing for the new baby to arrive and forget to document how perfect and round your little belly is.  Savannah didn’t want to forget any detail, because although she is a first-time mom, she knows from listening to the wisdom of an amazing support system of family that this phase will be gone all too soon!  I had a wonderful time that evening hearing about sweet little Blakely and the plans for her arrival.  I know Savannah and Jacob already love this baby girl more than anything and even though she isn’t here just yet, she already has them wrapped around her tiny little finger.

Here are Savannah’s favorites from her Maternity Session:



Paige | Dumas, Arkansas Bridal Photographer

Y’all, this gorgeous girl got married this past Saturday!!

What a beautiful morning we had on the day of Paige’s bridal session.  We started early to beat the heat, and it worked out perfectly because by the time we finished it started to get, in true Arkansas fashion, a little steamy outside.  Paige came to the studio accompanied by her sister in law and her precious mama.  Within the first 10 minutes of being there I could tell that Paige and her mama had a special bond.  Yes, mothers and daughters tend to turn into friends as time goes on, but these two just had something about them that was extraordinary and very evident.  After talking with them awhile, Paige shared with me that her mom was truly her best friend.  THAT was the ‘next level’ that I could feel.  You could see it in their eyes, you could watch it as they laughed together.  I was thrilled when Paige told me that even though her mama was a little reluctant, she would be taking some portraits with her that morning.  Talk about special!  We laughed and had a wonderful time, and together we came out with stunning images of Paige to display at her wedding and to forever have in her home.

Paige and I sort of ‘clicked’ when we met.  I felt like we could talk forever.  I knew that we sort of shared a special ‘bond’ in that I, too, had a Christmas wedding.  I never imagined that we would also share such a tragic moment in our lives;  the loss of our mothers.

Peggy, Paige’s mama, passed away roughly a month ago.  There is absolutely no way to explain the feeling of losing your mama.  We can never know what the future holds for us our our loved ones, but God does, and nothing catches Him off guard.  He knows our hurt and how deep that pain runs in our veins (and boy does it run deep).  I’m so thankful that we can place our faith and hope in Him, and know that we get to see our mamas one day again.  Please join me in praying for this sweet girl and her family in the days to come.

I’m so thankful her mama joined us that day.  What sweet memories Paige will have every time she looks at her bridal portraits.

Now, I present to you the stunning Mrs. Paige Johnson-Blevins:




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!


Abby | Dumas, Arkansas Senior Photographer

Abby’s session was so laid back and relaxed!  She let me take her to locations and pose her however I wanted with no objections at all.  I absolutely love her outfit choices…they went perfect with the season!  Fall is my favorite time of the year to shoot sessions because of the gorgeous warm colors everywhere, and Abby agrees!  She is such a gorgeous girl inside and out, and her perfect outfits along with beautiful hair and makeup were just icing on the cake!  Take a look at her 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:


Simpson Family | Dumas, Arkansas Family Photographer

Fall is officially here, even though it doesn’t really feel like it temperature-wise most days!  We had an absolutely gorgeous morning for The Simpson family’s fall family portraits!  This entire family is SO photogenic!  I had a great time watching the kids run around and play in the midst of getting some gorgeous pictures that this family will get to enjoy for years to come!  Here are some of their favorites:s1-copys13-copys17-copys23-copys31-copys39-copys40-copys45-copys50-bw-copys57-bw-copys60-bw-copys61-copys63-copys68-copys70-copy



Henry | Dumas, Arkansas Baby Photographer

How can it be that this beautiful little boy is already sitting up?  Didn’t I JUST do his newborn session!?  This fun-loving little boy has the most contagious little grin you will ever see.  I can’t wait to watch him grow and see all of the adventures his mama and daddy take him on ❤

Oh, and I think he wins the award for most adorable Halloween costume for 2016!



Kaylee | Dumas, Arkansas Senior Photographer

After getting rained out a few times, we were finally able to meet at Lake Monticello for Kaylee’s sunset summer session.  It was a little bit hot and a lot humid, but she never once complained!  We hopped around from place to place and finished with a gorgeous painted sunset in the sky.  She nor the sky disappointed that evening!  She has the sweetest, most gentle spirit about her, and I know her parents would be SO proud of who she is today.  Here are a few of Kaylee’s favorites (we will be sharing more soon since she decided to do the 2-part senior session….summer AND fall!)
