Jake T. | Class of 2020 | DeWitt, Arkansas Senior Photographer

Sometimes there are families that I get to meet with this business that reminds me of my own.  The type of family who does most everything together.  The kids are all pretty close in age and grow up together, sometimes even having birthday parties together.  The kind of family that clears out a section of the bleachers when they come, because they all come to support and cheer on their kid.  That’s my family (sorry for the people we sometimes run off because of that LOL), and that’s Jake’s family.

It would be tough to find a more genuine crew out there, and Jake is blessed.  Farming is deep in their veins, and Jake even wrote a poem about it that we incorporated into one of his senior portraits.  In this picture (that you’ll see below), he was wearing his grandpa’s belt, standing in their family field.

We hopped around to a few places during his session- their farm, a special place back in the woods near the bayou, the Gillett welcome sign & football field, and even his grandma’s yard.  Speaking of his grandma’s yard- Jake wanted to do a few of those corny ‘senior pics’ that was hot in the 80’s and 90’s, so the ones you see with the tree are what we came up with.  I must say though, his mom and I laughed because they weren’t THAT bad!!  I wasn’t surprised at his request- this is coming from a guy who’s group of friends decided they all wanted to grow mullets, and brought the ‘business in the front/party in the back’ to 2019/2020!  They’ve got guts, humor, and know how to make a memory!

Here are some favorites from Jake’s session.  Also, I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again- families who come back to me over and over for portraits are giving me the highest honor I could ever achieve.  There’s no award or trophy that can compare to a returning client, and for this family and every other family who returns to me, I am humbled and forever grateful!

Ana | Dumas, Arkansas Senior Photographer

Ana is an upcoming senior at DeWitt High School, but she also bleeds the blood of her hometown school, the Gillett Wolves.

She grew up in Gillett and was able to attend school there during her elementary years.

She knew she absolutely had to include her old school, her heritage, and most importantly, her faith.  I absolutely love how it turned out!  Here are her favorites:
