NWA Graduation Portrait Photographer: RJ’s Portraits



The blog contains little bits of my life, my passions, and my work. I update it daily so there is always something new to come see.

Something most people don’t realize I am is an NWA Graduation Portrait Photographer. Because I shoot and post so many weddings, wedding posts dominate the blog and website. However, I absolutely LOVE photographing graduating seniors. It’s such an incredibly important time in life. It definitely deserves to be documented. I thought I’d spend some time today sharing images from RJ’s graduation portrait session.

For RJ’s senior pictures, we shot all around Bentonville. I used the area near Oven and Tap in Bentonville because it has character. I also shot at 21c, which I love for modern backgrounds. Finally, we took photos at a random field I found on I Street in Bentonville. Bentonville has a ton of incredible photographic spots! If you’re looking for an NWA Graduation Portrait Photographer, let’s set it up! I have a blast shooting seniors, as do they! I’ve photographed hundreds of seniors’ graduation photos–that’s actually how Benfield Photography started! I’ve even photographed a celebrity’s graduation photos (Shay Mooney from Dan+Shay)! Cool, right?

RJ was a total sweetheart during her session. Her mom accompanied us (I always love a friend or parent to tag along to help… as long as they aren’t bossy or overly critical, lol) and made the shoot really fun! I hope you enjoyed this post!

Talk to you soon,
