Photographer in Little Rock Arkansas
People say I’m bubbly and fun to be around. I specialize in Weddings, Headshots, and Families!
My biggest strengths as a photographer are: my positive energy and supportive spirit. I'm great at giving direction when posing and working with with all different types of people. I have a big personality! My biggest strengths in my images are the natural smiles, light and airy editing style, attention to detail, editing prowess, and creative use of location and relationships. People also comment about how professional I am. I’d love to work with you! Read my reviews!
So how did you get into this business?
I started as a professional photo editor in 2006.
I worked part time as a studio manager and photo editor for a photography legend, Lance Johnston, while I went to college. I worked on the open second floor of his studio. I could see and hear everything Lance said to his clients. I learned some amazing techniques from Lance – even how to make a photo look hand painted.
I also put his weddings albums together – one 5x5 print at a time. He had a system at weddings. He knew the staple items to catch at every single event and he was consistent. This is how I learned how to put a wedding timeline together.
I had hundreds of 5x5 prints that I had to arrange in a way that best told the story of the day. This inspired me always think of a wedding as a story. Even if there are unexpected twists and turns – those are the details you want to remember.
After I graduated from the University of Central Arkansas, I worked in corporate America. I build two marketing departments and was also the graphic designer for the third largest real estate company in the nation. I offered our agents headshot sessions through the company!
Before I was anything else, I was an actor. I started asking my friends if they wanted to update their headshots! People started talking.
I started taking my camera to social events. People wanted their picture taken by me. I started creating a style.
