Senior 2011? Ask Now about Becoming A Sr Rep

Now booking, Senior Reps for the Class of 2011.

What is a Senior Rep? Basically, it's someone who'd like to earn free photos and discounts on their senior portraits for helping us promote our senior photography business. You get a free winter session (right now) and sample photos to show your classmates. The main purpose of a senior rep is to show off their photos, and hand our cards, good for free wallets. We need 3-4 seniors from each high school. Most any high school in NW Arkansas and SW Missouri will qualify. This is a chance to earn discounts, free photos, have your photos used in our advertising, and even win cash, plus get some of the coolest senior photos around! Don't miss out! Limited time offer.

If you are interested, or want more information, email me at, message me on Facebook, or can call the studio 870-749-2588.

New! Small Event Packages from $299

For sometime we've been thinking about adding packages for smaller social events, such as wedding anniversaries, reunions, and even small weddings. In visiting with a few other photographer friends, we've come up with a couple small packages.
The $299 package has 10 8x10's. There is also a 20 8x10 package for $449. In order to keep prices low, we visit with you before the event and make a list of the photos you want. Time is also limited to one hour for the $299 package. The $449 package is for up to 2 hours.
Some photographers are finding that people will book these type packages for a not-so-small wedding. Perhaps they have friends that are amateur photographers who are good at candid photography, but the bride wants to makes sure they don't miss the really important traditional wedding photos. With the $449 package, we could do a few photos of the ceremony, the group photos, the bride & groom, and perhaps the cake cutting. You get 20 8x10's. Then rely on your friends for all the pre-wedding and reception candids. Even the $299 package would be good for just group photography.
Our newest digital equipment makes it feasible for us to offer this lower price. Our location lighting set up is much more portable and lightweight than anything we've had in the past!
These packages are not available on all dates.

Barnes Anniversary

Brad and Kim with their 3 children.

Brad and Kim with their 30th anniversary cake.
Friends gathered in front of the Bella Vista Country Club to greet Brad and Kim.

On Friday, February 13th, we attended a surprise anniversary party for Brad and Kim Barnes. The event was held at the Bella Vista Country Club. Brad has been a fireman with the Bella Vista fire department for many years.
Brad and I go way back. I first met him in 5th grade, when his family moved here from Oregon. His dad had been raised in this area, and moved the family back to Arkansas after Brad's mother passed away. Brad and I were good buddies all through school. He was our senior class president, I was secretary.
Brad's grandparents, Roy and Vera Barnes, lived in Oak Grove, so I knew them for many years. Roy was our school bus driver.
In the fall of 1975, Roy and Vera celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary. They asked me if I'd take photos. Brad and I had been on the yearbook staff together our senior year. I was the photographer, Brad was sports editor. It was the very first event I was paid to photograph.
Congratulation Brad and Kim!
