I’ve previously shared Modeling Portfolio Photos in NW Arkansas of my friend Alex, but realized I had a bunch you haven’t seen!

Model ➡️ Senior ➡️ Bride: Caroline Fox

Fall senior portraits of sexy senior posing in front of fall leaves

This weekend I have the unique opportunity to photograph a client from model to senior to bride. Way back, I photographed Caroline’s fall senior pictures (aka fall graduation pics) in 2014. Actually, I remember the shoot so well. We photographed her senior pictures in Eureka Springs, and she killed the shoot. Obviously, I knew she […]

I never thought of myself as a Supermodel Photographer, but after the shoots I have been doing recently, I am definitely going to reconsider. It helps that I married a supermodel, duh. But it also helps that the very same wife introduced me to her OU college friend, Carmen. Return of the Ballerina Bride… You […]
