Libby will be graduating this school year from Arkansas Arts Academy, and heading to MIZZOU for college! That campus is about to get one amazing lady added to their freshman role. 🙂 She is fun, sassy, and has a heart of gold!

And we couldn’t let her go to college without a picture with her little sis. 🙂



This family was just a pleasure to photograph. So comfortable in front of the camera, and so funny. I couldn’t help but to see my future when I looked at them, four children with a bit of age difference between the oldest and the youngest. It was fun to see. 🙂

These three are all graduating this year. One from high school, and two from college!



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. 🙂



Last time I photographed this family sweet ‘C’ was just a baby. Now she is this totally adorable little girl who looks exactly like her mama! She brought her Lovie with her, and even make sure he was a part of the family! 🙂

Mama is a very talented artist herself. She paints the most amazing creations! Commissioning her is on my 2014 list! And I do believe her ‘mini me’ sometimes paints right along side. 🙂

This last one is something a bit different from my usual…but it’s growing on me. It reminds me of something pulled from the past.
