Potrait Locations: Downtown Little Rock

Downtown Little Rock has an abundance of cool areas for photos, and because it’s a little outside of the Russellville area, shooting here is one way to get something a little different than what everyone else will end up with for senior pictures!!  The only problem with downtown Little Rock is there are so many […]

Portrait Locations: Russellville Area

Russellville has an abundance of beautiful areas for portraits, from urban textures and alleyways, to natural parks and lakes.  We can usually get to anywhere from 2-5 spots shoot during a typical 1.5-2.5 hour portrait session, if they are all in the Russellville vicinity.  Here are some examples of the many spots available in the […]

Portrait Locations: Choose your own setting…..

Some of the favorites sessions I have ever shot have been at private locations.  There are many beautiful homes and properties all around the Russellville area, so if you really want something different for your session, spend some time thinking about homes and land in your family, or of people you know who might not […]

Portrait Location: Gray Barn in Caglesville

Just 13 miles down Hwy 124 going out of Russellville is the land where I spent most of my youth, running around barefoot, climbing trees and exploring my grandma’s old barn.  The old barn is still standing, and my parents now live just a few hundered feet from the old structure where I played so […]

Portrait Location: AR River Beach and Dardanelle Areas

The first time I shot on the Arkansas River beach, which is just right over the bridge going into Dardanelle, I remember thinking “this is the closest thing the River Valley has to a real beach-look location!”  Maybe there are other beautiful “beachy” locations in AR (and if you know of a pretty one, I […]

Portrait Location: The Barn at Twin Oaks Ranch

Kyla: 2018 Pottsville Senior

Kyla is one of my beautiful 2017 Senior models, but on the morning of our big Prom shoot, she woke up with two swollen, red eyes.  Unsure if she had pinkeye, she missed the shoot as a precaution to keep everyone else healthy (and we were all grateful, even though we missed her!!!)  She was […]
