out of breath

profressional childrens photographer in arkansas

That’s what I was feeling after racing little man (and getting beat) in between picture “takes”. And as you can see, now one of my favorite shots above, sister got in on the action.

We did a little country, then a little “city” that day…

Absolutely gorgeous, R! A beautiful session from start to finish.

A-M-A-Z-I-N-G Raye! Beautiful children..wonderfully captured!

Laura

WOW. what beautiful children!!

Raye, this is one of my favorite shoots of yours. Your signature backlighting once again is breathtaking and I love the way you are processing!

These are beautiful, Raye!! My fave is the second image – I love everything about it! Great job as always. :)

…..on this dreary day. We had to reschedule this family before because of rain, so when we had the perfect weather, we took advantage of it.

What a gorgeous family – and you captured them so well! Love them all but my favorite is of her with her tongue sticking out. Too cute!

Lisa Parton

Great photographs! What a beautiful family set in wonderful lighting. It’s hard for me choose a favorite however I think it might be the close up, she’s such a happy little girl. I bet it has something to do with a certain Aunt spoiling her?

This session is from last week…and is a combination session in another sense. We “tackled” both a sibling session and a senior session all in one. Oldest guy is the town’s amazing quarterback, so football shots below were in order.

He is my next to last senior I have on the books to shoot.  If you are one of many that have called/emailed in the last few months inquiring about a senior session, you may already know this. If you are looking for a senior photographer, I have a great photographer to refer to you – just ask!

In the meantime, I have decided to focus and specialize on families and baby portraits and may dabble back into teen/senior photography maybe some time in the future.

It’s so fun meeting new clients…these guys came quite a ways and made a overnight stay in Fort Smith for a mini-getaway. I think it was little dude’s first time in a hotel and it was their first official family photo shoot. They found me through well-known wedding photographer Crystal Goss’ (thanks C!) blog after seeing some of my work I shot for her family this year.

The Clarkes are meteorologists for the National Weather service. I joked they must have known way before me that their session was scheduled for some gorgeous weather. We got so much variety both inside and out with a little backlighting that I crave on the side.

Side note: Little man’s diaper is the ultra-green G-diaper Check them out!

Last week I met the newest McCormmick baby. It seemed just like  yesterday that I photographed her big sis’ newborn portraits. I can’t wait to see this one grow…see if she is laid back, see if she has curls like her sister, and how her little piece of the puzzle fits. Congrats!
