Amirtha is a Bentonville High School 2018 senior. This girl is the perfect blend of brain, sass, sweetness, beauty and individuality. She is in Bentonville Chamber Orchestra (which rocks btw!), plays piano and wants to pursue computer science as a major in college. Talk about using both left and right side of your brain! I love her respect for her Indian heritage and was thrilled that she wore a sari for her senior session. It’s not everyday that you see a senior girl rocking a sari for her portraits!
When I first met Amirtha at her portrait consultation, I felt like I had already met her. She is so much like my daughter in her “shy at first but a total ball once you get to know her” personality. I loved watching this girl unfold in front of my camera and becoming this confident-in-her-skin, graciously beautiful young lady.
Amirtha didn’t want her senior images to be average and if you know me, you know I love doing anything but average! We started fantasizing and planning about the elegant, glamorous- but-still her look and perfect outfits and locations to achieve just that. I love the outfits we picked out to be photographed in for her session and the locations we chose did wonders for her images. I especially love the spring trees with her bright red dress…just so beautiful!
Here are some of Amirtha’s favorite images from her session.
I loved spending time with this sweet girl and creating these gorgeous images of her that document her senior year in such a beautiful way. Thanks for trusting me with your senior portraits Amritha! I wish you all the best with your college life. I know you will totally ace the nerd department in whichever university you decide on.

Jasmyrrh is a 2018 senior at Providence Classical Christian Academy in Rogers, NWA. I first met Jasmyrrh during her sweet family’s portrait session last summer. She is a fun, down-to-earth, soft-spoken girl, just like her parents. It’s hard not to become fond of the Cortez family once you meet them.
Jas lives in the moment and is always up for trying something new. When I suggested running and dancing with colorful ribbons for some of her senior pictures, she instantly came on board. Her eyes lit up as she was twirling in a black tutu and colorful ribbons. I’m so excited to share a few of my favorites from her senior portrait session that show her fun, vibrant, friendly, girl-next-door personality, oh so well.
Thanks for choosing me to create your senior portraits, Jas and trusting me with my crazy ideas. I’m so glad you love these images just as much as I do!

Anil called me inquiring for a family photo session 2 days before the family was supposed to leave for India. We got to working and made it happen! 🙂 I think best things happen when you just jump into it and don’t have time to stress over planning everything perfectly. We decided to do two different looks , Indian ethnic wear and casual outfits. Lake Atalanta in Rogers has always been one of my favorite spots to photograph, and this particular day it did not disappoint. The weather cooperated well and we even got beautiful sunset light. I love how bright and airy these images turned out. After shooting at the lake we went back to the studio to change it up a bit. They decided to wear Indian ethnic clothing for the studio portraits. Indian outfits can brighten up any portrait with their bright colors and grand look and their portraits turned out just stunning. I adore the pictures we got from their session. Here are some of my favorites. I hope you love these too!

Pragnya and Bharath are truly made for each other. My heart was just melting during their entire shoot. They are the sweetest couple, so in love with each other. They make each other laugh and the joy that shines in their hearts can be clearly seen in all their pictures. I couldn’t be more in love with these two! Pragnya is so fun to be around. She’s the girl next door who giggles and blushes a lot. When we met for the portrait consultation, I already knew their photo session was going to be amazing. I love the outfits we picked out for their session and the location we chose. Everything fell in place just like a romantic story. Bharath flew in from Virginia for his engagement shoot and the first time I met him was at the time of the shoot. We instantly hit off like old friends and he was super comfortable posing for every single shot! We did their engagement shoot at one of my most favorite locations in Bentonville, Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art. I love how many different backdrops are available at this one spot! Enjoy some of the favorites from Pragnya and Bharath’s engagement session and leave them some love!
These two are getting married on March 10th in India. I can’t wait to see Pragnya dressed up as an Indian bride in her red bridal saree, but for now, I’m in love with the images we created in this session and I absolutely love their Save the Date. I had quite some fun designing it.

I have known the Visser family for about a decade now and they are one of the sweetest families! Sarah called me and said, “Nidhi, I’m ready to hang some beautiful pictures of our family on the walls and I know you will be the best photographer for this!”. I’m so glad she trusted me with these images and absolutely adore how these portraits turned out. Here are some of my favorites from their session at the Crystal Bridges Museum of Art in Bentonville. The Vissers made my job so easy with their adorable smiles and fun personalities. The fur babies cooperated like champs. I love creating complete family portraits with dogs included.
Vissers did great coordinating their outfits. Their session is perfect for outfit ideas for your family pictures. I love how they coordinated, picking one bright color and mixing in with neutrals, without matching exactly with each other.
Here’s the ones we did in the studio for their Christmas cards.

Sharae wanted her senior portraits to be fun and one of a kind to show her personality. So the fun route we went with a gaint balloon and bright colors! Her images scream FUN loud and clear.
She’s not just a fun girl, she’s quite a talent in singing. This girl made first chair choir to States. We just had to incorporate her talent in her photo session.
Sharae’s a free spirit who is always up for adventure so when she said she wants to get in the water, I said heck yes! These geese were excited to have a new friend too.
We did all her outdoor pictures in downtown Rogers and the lake Atalanta area and the studio pictures were done in my Bentonville studio.
Sharae picked our handcrafted leather bound album to savor these memories for many many years. She also decided to get our 11×14 image folio box to put up a framed collage on her walls and use some folio prints for friends and family. She also had to have a giant poster for her room of her balloon picture because it captured her true self the best.
Sharae, thank you for being super fun to spend my day playing dress up and splashing water with. Hope your senior year is your best year yet!
