The Perfect Time of Year http://www.randphotography.com/blog/2016/10/the-perfect-time-of-year The colors will peak in the next two weeks and we should still have good color through about November 10.  Call now to book your family, couple, senior, or pet photography session.

Here is a photograph of a senior who will be graduating next year.  We took this one in the spring but I love it and loved getting to do the session.

Fall Family Photographs http://www.randphotography.com/blog/2016/9/fall-family-photographs Fall is here!  We are booking sessions for this beautiful time of the year.  We do work weekends but we have weddings on some Saturdays.  There are some Saturdays open and we also work on Sunday afternoon to help accommodate our customers. Family photographs are great and we also do a lot of high school senior photography.  Often we combine the senior session with a family portrait. This works wonderfully.

So if it is family photos, senior photos, engagement, bridal, or anniversary photographs now is the time to book.  You will have your images for Christmas and can do it at a time when the temperature is nice and the outdoor color is fantastic.

Keep in mind that we can do photography now after school and after work.  Daylight savings time does not end until November 6. While it is getting darker earlier each day, there is still good light.  For example, sunset on October 1 was 6:45. Sunset on October 30 is 6:08.

While most of our photography is in the Paragould and Jonesboro areas we are delighted to travel elsewhere. Our number is 870-236-2275.

Senior picture http://www.randphotography.com/blog/2016/2/senior-picture Senior pictures should be about the seniors -- how they look, how they dress, what they like to do, what they drive, their pet, and who is important to them.  These are some of the ideas we suggest for a senior session.  They can bring a friend to be in some of the photographs with them.

We encourage families to consider having a family session done at the time of the senior photographs.  In the years to come it will be harder and harder to make this happen - plus there will be no way possible to recapture how everyone looks today.  Most families do the family photos first and then those who have other things to do can leave after the family portion of the session.  You can always pick a time during the session for all the family members to show up if it works better for your schedule.

This photograph was done at the senior's home with his guitar.  We chose to do this one in black and white.  We'll get together to look at the photographs and show you options and you can decide what you want, what size and what finish.  It's a simple process.  It all begins with calling us to schedule your session :).

Senior Pictures http://www.randphotography.com/blog/2016/2/senior-pictures There is still plenty of time to get senior pictures for the seniors graduating in May.  We photograph on location.  That includes in clients' homes or outdoors.  The unusually warm periods we have been having makes it a lot more comfortable outside but nice weather will be common in March.  We do work weekends plus the days are getting longer which is better for some people after work.  Call now to book your senior photography session. Here is an photograph we took in the fall of a senior and his dog.

Senior pictures http://www.randphotography.com/blog/2016/1/senior-pictures We are getting calls for spring senior pictures.  Turns out -- this weekend is like spring!  If you'd like pictures taken this weekend call me at 870-236-2275.  It's hard to believe we are going to have temperatures in the high 60's in January ... but I'll surely take it.

There is still time for pictures for Christmas http://www.randphotography.com/blog/2015/11/there-is-still-time-for-pictures-for-christmas It has been a very busy fall. So busy that I have not taken time to update this blog :). I have been working on senior pictures, family photographs, couple photographs, wedding photographs and engagement photographs as well as commercial photography work.  It has been a beautiful fall with great scenery.  But it is not over.  There is still time to get photographs for Christmas.  We can do these outside or we can certainly do indoor photographs. This weekend I have been at Lit'l Bita Christmas at the A-State Convocation Center in Jonesboro and I'll be there today (November 15) from noon until 4:00.  Several people have asked if it is too late for Christmas photographs. No it is not.  Weekdays are easiest for me to fit people in but I do work weekends.  Next weekend has some time available.  I also have some time on Sunday November 29; and the weekend of December 12 and 13.  There is a possibility of the weekend of December 19-20 but that is pushing really close to Christmas.  We can certainly photograph on that weekend but at this time I cannot promise delivery of photographs by Christmas Day. Let's get you and your family photographed in the next 30 days!  Call me at 870-236-2275.

Take your holiday pictures now http://www.randphotography.com/blog/2015/10/take-your-holiday-pictures-now high school seniorMary The leaves are changing colors and it will get better and better until about Halloween.  Then there will be another week to ten days of fall color.  While we have taken some of our favorite outdoor pictures in the dead of winter we find that from now until November 5 is the best time of year.  In addition to the gorgeous colors the temperature is great and the bugs are not bad.  It has been a busy five weeks with seniors, couples, corporate, two weddings in Arkansas, one in Tennessee and one in Missouri.  Now is the home stretch for fall portraits and we have time available.  We work Saturdays and Sundays to accommodate your schedule.  Call us now to book your session. 870-236-2275

Book Fall Photographs Now http://www.randphotography.com/blog/2015/8/book-fall-photographs-now The Fall is one of the best times of the year for photographs.  The temperature is nice and the trees start changing color in mid-October.  Normally the peak of color is right around Halloween.  Now is the time to book photographs for your family, for your high school senior, or for yourself.  September is a crazy month for me starting about the 12th and going through the first week in October.  Call now for sessions before September 12th and to book those great outdoor-color photographs in October. We do have limited availability the rest of September.  We are located in Paragould but travel - (we did an engagement session yesterday in Heber Springs).  We don't charge a location fee in Greene County or Craighead County.  So if you'd like to be photographed in Jonesboro there is no travel fee.  We don't charge a session fee as you will see explained elsewhere on our site.  Call today. 870-236-2275

Senior pictures in Northeast Arkansas http://www.randphotography.com/blog/2015/2/senior-pictures-in-northeast-arkansas As I write this post it is sleeting and we are expecting snow later today. It may be hard to imagine that spring is just around the corner ... and so is graduation for the 2015 seniors.  We take a lot of senior pictures each spring.  And we take some in the winter with snow on the ground.  So if you are in the Jonesboro, Paragould, Pocahontas, Kennett or Trumann area we'd love to photograph you.  And just because I did not name your town does not mean I don't care about it.  Okay, Marmaduke.  I can't leave Marmaduke out as I have photographed some great seniors from there ... and Brookland, too!  So the list goes on and I don't want to bore you with a list of towns in the area.  I want to excite you with the photographs we have taken of other seniors and promise you that we will work with you to get you the images you want.  Call us today at 870-236-2275 and let's schedule your senior portraits!
