Meet the team
Our studio has grown over the years from the efforts and dreams of two ladies beginning out of home-based photography businesses who had the desire to collaborate together and grow professionally. In 2010, Cheryl Weaver and Maggie Hendrix's dream was established in Zoë Portrait Art (now Zoë Photographic Group). The word Zoë [zoh-ee] is of greek origin meaning "life": A life real and genuine, active and vigorous, devoted to God, blessed. Over the last ten years, our business has been blessed by some very talented and fun women, who we are thankful to still call friends. We love that, like our clients, Zoë has gone through several life changes, which leads us to our current stage of "life" with two friends, Kim and Erin, owning the studio and continuing to photograph your families. We are honored to capture every milestone for you, our clients. We are excited to photograph every season of your live and are blessed to experience these milestones with you.
Our loft studio is located at 213 C West Arch Avenue in Downtown Searcy, Arkansas.

Hey there! I'm super excited that you have stopped by to read up on who the ladies are behind Zoë! Let me be honest with you and say that talking about myself makes my palms sweat and my heart sink into my stomach, so please excuse the awkwardness about to follow. I would prefer to be behind the camera, hiding in the corner, or capturing moments between people than to open up about myself. But, here we are, and I have to be an adult (right?!) My biggest cheerleaders in life are my husband of 21 years and my two kiddos who constantly keep me on my toes and keep me motivated to do what I do. I know it sounds cliche, but I truly feel blessed to be able to do what I love for a living and remind myself constantly not to take it for granted! I look forward to always meeting new clients (as long as I don't have to talk much about myself , remember - sweaty palms?) and I can't wait for us to become more friends than clients while documenting your stages of life!

Hi :) I'm erin. I agree with Kim, writing this about myself is not my favorite thing. I much prefer to not be the focus of attention... maybe that's why I choose to be behind a camera focusing my attention on others. I am so thankful to own this business with my best friend. When you love the people you work with, work doesn't really feel like work (I said that word too many times and now it sounds weird... work, work, work...) I've always been encouraged to chase after this dream by my husband (and high school sweetheart) David, and my 3 kids (Hannah, Aiden, and Conner) have been the most beautiful models in from of my lens for all their lives. It is watching how fast their childhood is flying by that inspires me to capture those fleeting moments for you. I so look forward to meeting you and hearing all about your family so we can make plans to document your crazy beautiful life.
