One of my dear friends is about to have a high school graduate. Wow. Tyler has got some mad drawing skills, and he even speaks a bit of Japanese. I feel so inadequate… 🙂



She has the best smile! I love when I get to photograph a senior. It doesn’t happen often as I’m more babies and children, but it’s a nice break from my normal. Madison wanted a little downtown and a little natural. She wasn’t interested in being photographed where people would be staring at her, and neither was I! We kept our downtown shots off the beaten path, but somehow those sweet older ladies (you know…the one’s that smile at all passing babies) still found us, ohhh’ing and ahhh’ing at her. 🙂

She is still trying to choose between 3 different colleges, but I know she will do great wherever she decides.

This last set of images below was fun. Madison is a long distance runner. She wanted something a bit silly, like wearing a dress with her running shoes. 🙂 Trying to get this shot on a Friday night, in the middle of a road, downtown, on a game night…it required a lot of patience. And running back and forth. 🙂



I am so glad I got to meet Michelle.  She is sweet, kind, funny and has always got a smile to give!  She has been living here in Arkansas all school year as part of an exchange student program.  I’m sure her family and friends have missed her terribly, but I am also sure the people that have gotten to know her here will miss her terribly!  Michelle, I pray for safe travels back to Indonesia.  Hopefully our paths will cross again.  Beth, thank you for thinking of me and for opening up your home to not just her, but other exchange students as well!  It takes a special family to do this.  xo



Last year was the first year I tried this, and I really enjoyed doing these.  We mother’s, we don’t like to get in front of the camera too often.  We like our hair and make up to be perfect, and often they aren’t since we spend our days juggling kids, house, errands and jobs.  It’s important that we make the time to have pictures taken.  And not just of the whole family, but those individual relationships within your family.  They are precious and fleeting. They need to be photographed.  Our memories are often times tied to images, photographs.  Make sure you are in those images.

Through the month of April these sessions will be offered on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

If you’ve spent any time at all looking around my site you’ve noticed that I pretty much photograph children.  I love photographing children!  They are so fun and each one is a new discovery.  Every once in a while I get the opportunity to photograph tweens and seniors.  It’s always nice not to have to chase your subject.  😉  Although I don’t advertise on my site or anywhere else for seniors I do photograph them.  Here is a sample of one.

(on a site note I don’t photograph wedding, ever.  But, I can recommend some great ones around here!)  🙂
