Dee | Dumas, Arkansas Senior Photographer

Dee came to me with several ideas in mind to capture during her senior session.  First of all, she wanted to incorporate her mom, who she lost to cancer a few years ago.

Her mama taught me in 7th grade, and she was so much fun.  She was a little ball of energy and kept us laughing, not to mention she was an excellent teacher.  Christy was one of those that you knew you could go to if you had any kind of problem and she would listen to you and help you figure things out.  I haven’t met a person yet that didn’t have anything but good things to say about her, and I can tell that Dee is walking in her footsteps.

Second, she wanted to incorporate one of her good friends that passed in a car wreck right around the time she lost her mom.  Dane had a contagious smile, and although I didn’t personally know him, I know he touched this community just by hearing the stories his friends and family share of him.

Last but definitely not least, Dee wanted to incorporate the family business and do a generation portrait with her Dad and Grandfather.  Mizell Heating and Air began in the building behind them in their portrait, and has gown to service a huge portion of the state of Arkansas and surrounding states.  Although they may no longer operate from this building, the values and work ethic of this company hasn’t changed.

We worked together to bring these ideas to life for Dee, and I couldn’t be more proud of her portraits.  I pray that she can look at these for years to come and proudly smile at the lives she’s touched and at the people who helped grow her into the beautiful young woman she is today.

Valeria | Dumas, Arkansas Senior Photographer

McGehee High School Class of 2018

Valeria is as sweet as she is smart.  She loves her school, being with her friends, and loves those Friday night lights with her teammates cheering on the Owls.

She took us to a family friends home to do her portraits, and this place was a wonderland.  There were beautiful shade trees all around, tons of colorful flowers all throughout the back yard, and a serene bayou out to the side.  We had fun walking around the property taking her portraits.

She had so many gorgeous portraits, but these topped the list of favorites:

Mary Rebekah | Dumas, Arkansas Senior Photographer

Mary Rebekah has the beauty and the brains.

She has an infectious personality….the kind that you can’t help but to be in a good mood when you’re around her!  She is in the running for Valedictorian of her class and is a dedicated member of the MHS dance team.

I want to be Mary Rebekah when I grow up.

LOL.  Seriously though, she is so determined and focused.  I know she will do big things after graduation, and I can’t wait to see!

Here are her favorites:
