Jade | Dumas, Arkansas Senior Photographer

Jade and I go way back.

For those of you who don’t know, I taught Junior High Science/Yearbook at Cornerstone Christian Academy in Tillar for 6 years.  I was doing my photography part-time while teaching, but took that leap of faith to go full time in my photography business December 2014.

Jade was in my first 7th grade science class.  She was sweet, quiet, and had such a gentle spirit about her.  There wasn’t a time that she didn’t have her homework, and whatever I asked of her she always came through 110%.  She’s dependable, trustworthy, and just an all-around good kid.

Jade has blossomed into such a gorgeous young woman.  I have to admit though, I was a little sad looking through her images, because in my mind she’s still my little ‘baby Jade’ from 7th grade.  I can only imagine how her parent’s feel!

I can’t wait to show you Jade and her parent’s favorites.  Always reach for the stars, Jade!

Jaela | Dumas, Arkansas Senior Photographer

Y’all, Jaela is a natural in front of the camera.  I took care of the posing and she took care of everything else.  We had fun in the studio and then went outside to several locations, some new.  She brought a ton of outfits and we had a great time going through them and picking out favorites for each setting.  She’s got the beauty, the brains, AND she’s super athletic!  She will be attending The University of the Ozarks in the fall to play fast pitch softball!

Here are a few favorites from her session:

Emily | Dumas, Arkansas Senior Photographer

If I had to describe Emily in one word, I would choose determined.  Even though I’ve only known her a short time, I can see so much ferocity and drive all contained in her tiny little frame (which I would kill for lol!).  I truly believe Emily gets it honest.  I can tell her parents have taught her that nothing in life is free and you have to work wholeheartedly for your own success in life.  After all, both of her parents recently retired, before the age of FIFTY!  How amazing is that?!

Emily is truly an amazing young woman.  I told her she would be someones boss one day, because she has the grace and drive to do so.

We had a gorgeous evening for Emily’s senior session!  Her outfits, the weather, and her vivacious spirit made for a perfect storm, and we got some amazing portraits that day.  Here are her favorites:
