I love it in life when things come full circle. Unknowingly, this happened for me with Alex. She was chosen as a member of my 2020 Street Team, so when we met at her meeting to plan out her sessions, I found out just who she was!
Delta had a wonderful principal when I was in school by the name of Miles Lowe. His wife, Mrs. Peggy, was our school counselor. There wasn’t a basketball game that I remember going to that he wasn’t there. He was a great example of someone who loved their job and their school. He was stern, but he was also forgiving. Mrs. Peggy was wonderful as well and was always there to help. She always had a smile on her face! She suddenly passed not long after I graduated high school, and it was a loss we all felt. I often wondered how Mr. Lowe was doing since I haven’t seen him in several years.
At this meeting, I found out that Alex is his granddaughter! I can’t tell you how excited I was to hear this, and to be able to catch up with them on how he was doing now. Everything made sense once I found out, because Alex is a lot like them the more I get to know her. She was blessed with wonderful parents, but even more so with wonderful grandparents (on both sides!)
Alex chose to do our two season senior package, which included a full summer session and a full fall session. They were both so much fun!! Wait until you see her grandfathers car that makes an appearance in her fall session….just wow!
She probably gets tired of hearing this from me, but I always tell her how gorgeous her skin is. Those freckles!! Gosh, I pray she never wears anything to cover them up!
Here are favorites from both of Alex’s sessions ❤
Rain, rain and more rain! We already had to reschedule Lindsey’s session once due to the rain, so since the chance was low for her new date we decided to stick with it. We made it through that evening but we definitely had to roll with the punches!
We went to our first location and it began to sprinkle, so we moved 20 minutes down the road and shot there. The rain began to fall at our location just as we finished. Since it looked to be clear at the first spot we started, we headed back that way.
It was probably dry for 5 minutes lol! We had just enough time to get a few ‘dry’ shots beforehand, but once it started raining my assistant Erin covered my head with the reflector and we kept on shooting!
I’m in love with Lindsey’s outfits! She did a fabulous job picking them out, even making her own flower crown. My hair and makeup artist, Catie, topped it off with a gorgeous look that perfectly matched Lindsey’s personality. Her boyfriend also tagged along so we done a few shots of them together, per his request! How sweet is that??
I’m in love with these!

I don’t think I’ve laughed as much at a session as I did at Kaylei’s. She and her mom have such a vivacious and friendly personality! I felt as if I’ve known them my entire life.
Kaylei loves to be outside, hunt, fish, go to church, and hanging out with her friends. She’s entering her senior year at Drew Central this fall, and plans to pursue Nursing afterwards at the University of Arkansas at Monticello.
