Hays Clothing | Searcy, AR Commercial Photographers

It has been one busy week at Zoë Portrait Art!  With a stunning bride, beautiful high school senior, cute expectant couple, adorable babies, families and even a commercial shoot to round it all off,  Maggie and I have been keeping this blog smokin’!  Yesterday afternoon we met up with a couple of gals from Hays Clothing store in Searcy to shoot an image for an upcoming advertisement.   We were so pleased our vision for the perfect shot came together when our beautiful models donned  fabulous clothing & accessories and met us downtown for some fun!  Hays is a GREAT place to shop, with one of the best selections of name brand clothing and shoes around.  I’m planning a personal trip over there very soon to purchase sandals for the summer.  Even though I was there on “business” this week, it didn’t stop me from trying on a few pairs that I’m pretty sure need to be mine!  Shoes are a great reward for working hard…right ladies? :)



Pumpkin Seed | Jonesboro Arkansas Child Photographer

Oh my.  This little sweetie created in me a strong desire to pro-create again!  I have to talk myself through it and remind myself that there is MUCH MORE to having a baby than just squishing their fat little cheeks to yours, cuddling and playing all day.  Yes, there is so much more to it than that…  However, and this is just another glorious advantage of my job, I do get to do those things with the babies that I photograph, so it is the perfect fix to my craving!  Awesome.:) Little “V” is CUUUTE and a little sassy and she has got her momma and her aunt completely wrapped around her finger!  We had a fun session on Wednesday and I so loved documenting the relationship of these two beautiful sisters as well.  Nope, they aren’t twins and I’m sure they get that all the time.  Thank you ladies for your fabulous session and thanks so much for driving from Jonesboro for it!  It was a blast for me!

Amber - That first black and white one is so great! I love the look on her sweet little face and how she looks so tiny being held by that hand. :)

Adventure | Searcy, Arkansas senior photographer

I love my job!

With the booking of each senior portrait session, the question is asked:  “Do you have a specific location in mind for your session?”  Sometimes the location is already pre-determined, yet other times we literally hop in the car and just start driving, which was the case with Monday evening’s session.  It is a fun adventure checking out the landscape, architecture and looking for that perfect light…and just when we thought the session was over, there it was, just one last stop calling our names!  I thoroughly enjoyed our time together and hearing about your plans for after high school.   After being such a great model at each of Maggie’s workshops, I am so glad you and your parents chose us to document this season of your life with a custom portrait session…just for you!  I am looking forward to hearing about the next season of your life.  May it be a continued adventure and blessed journey!

Happy Kids | Searcy, Arkansas Family Photographer

One of the coolest parts of my job is documenting childhood for repeat clients.  It has been 2 1/2 years since I photographed these two.  Little A was only 4 months old at the time!  Now just look at how big they are!  I couldn’t have asked for a more perfect session with this family.  These kids are happy, sweet and just bursting with personality.  Check out those sparkly blue eyes!  Thank you all so much for a fun session.  I’ll be in touch soon with the rest of your proofs!

Sweet, sweet baby… | Searcy, AR Newborn Photographer

Oh. My. Goodness.  This little man is a tiny little peanut and oh so sweet!  He made me work hard to get him to sleep for these sleeping baby shots and he was only 10 days old!  Once I got him in a nice deep sleep, though, he was putty in my hands.:) Matt & Melani, thank you so much for inviting me into your home to photograph your precious little guy.  I know he is bringing so much joy to your lives!  ~ Maggie
