A Tribute To A Hero

Micah McDaniel was in our studio this evening for the very first time.  Micah flew from Colorado all the way to Northeast Arkansas to see us. (side note: some of his family lives here) We were so happy to see him, and photograph his first portrait session.

Micah’s daddy and his papa both are in the Armed Forces, in fact his papa is in Afghanistan right now!  Momma thought is would be a great idea to do something with a military spin on it.  I think we pulled it off!

My hat goes off to this family for their willingness to serve our country!  God Bless the McDaniels and God Bless America!!!

Gender Reveal Party

So yes I know it has been a while since I made a blog post.  I have been super busy and been traveling!  As I am preparing to make another trip to NYC next week, I decided to share what I done today.  We are wanting to incorporate video and photography together to produce beautiful, emotional slideshows. So this is an example!

I had the privileged of photographing the Gender Reveal Party for Courtney & Josh Hollowell.  Courtney and Josh neither one knew the gender of their baby!  Only their friend Caleigh, who prepared the box of balloons!  Please click the link to watch the video clip and share their excitement!

Lillie Is Already 6 Months Old

The time passes by so quickly these days!  And with us seeing so many little babies come through our studio, we see all of them growing and changing!  It seems like just last week that Lillian Grace was getting her newborn pictures taken!  But it is 6 months later and she is just a cutie!!!  We appreciate Chelsea and Matt, for letting us work with Lillie!  Shots like this are just priceless!  I am happy to be the one that captured this memory for them!  Thanks again!!


Our Baby Package Starts With Maternity Portraits!

We have an amazing baby package called the “One Small Step” program.  However, we don’t always wait until after they are born to photograph them!  We love capturing maternity portraits of the mother around 7 month into the pregnancy.  We also get shots with the father…like this!Amber & Cory came to see us today! In spite of how it looks, Cory did actually know she was pregnant before this shot…lol.  We had lots of fun photographing them today. Amber & Cory are very special friends, and we are so happy for them! We are already looking forward to them having their baby, so we can capture some wonderful newborn shots for them!

If you or someone you know is having a baby, why not purchase one of our baby packages?  They make wonderful gifts, because the gift keeps giving all year.  We can capture maternity portraits, then newborn portraits, they come to see us at 3 months, again at 6 months, and then we photograph your child at one year old!!

For more information, please call 870-857-5297.  We look forward to hearing from you!


Adorable Baby Gannon

Babies, babies, babies!!  We love all the new babies we get to see!  And lately we have been seeing several!

Last night it was the adorable baby Gannon!  We got some super cute images of him!  This is just one of them!  How adorable is this?

Our ideal newborn portraits are the “sleeping baby” shots.  However that doesn’t always happen.  But as you can see, they are too cute.  We like to get the studio warm, the baby fed, and then my wife Stephanie usually gets them to sleep!  We were able to accomplish just that during this session!

Gannon was a doll for us!  I think he enjoyed modeling! lol  We want to thank Jamie & JJ for bringing him to see us!  We look forward to all of the other session of Gannon we will be doing this year.  Gannon is in our “One Small Step Program” So you will get to see more of him!

But of course Jamie, JJ, and Gannon were not alone.  Big sister Carlee was also there!  And her “pops” bought her a balloon to occupy her.  Of course I couldn’t miss the opportunity to photograph Miss Carlee and her balloon!If you enjoy our blog post, let us know by commenting and sharing on Facebook & Twitter.  If you want to make sure you see all of our blog post,  click on home, and the find the “follow” button on the right hand side of the screen.  You will then be emailed every time we make a new blog post!


Lane is turning 1

We have so many wonderful little clients, and several of them are turning one!  Lane is one of them!

Crystal came to see us to capture memories from her pregnancy.  This is a very special time, the time when you are closer to your child than you will ever be! When Lane was 9 days old, we captured some wonderful shots of him!  We love to get the sleeping baby shots, but they don’t always sleep!  Lane was one of our wide eyed newborns! At the 3 month session, we like to photograph one of your child’s milestones, which is them raising their head up.  We usually lay the child on their tummy and coax them into raising up and looking at us for a couple seconds.  Lane went beyond that, he was showing off for us! When it was time for his 6 month session, we went to the river!  Believe you me, Lane had fun in the sun and sand!  Towards the end of the session he decided to eat the sand instead of play in it!  I think he had a sand castle in his diaper the next morning! lol And then today he came in our studio so we could capture his 12 month session!  Lane was walking all over the place, and getting around everywhere!  But we got him to be still when we pulled out the cake!  We are so happy that Crystal and Mark trusted us with Lane’s memories from his first year.  Now that he has turned one, we really need to get them in our “Toddler Time Program”  Because we want to see Lane again at 2, 3, 4 & 5 year old….hint hint!

If you are having a newborn, or if you have a toddler, contact us today to get in one of our programs! www.jaysphoto.com 870-857-5297
