He is usually keeping my husband entertained and sane during our trips we take for fitness portraits. I absolulety love love love these two and am beyond thrilled to be a part of their wedding! 

Soooo....get ready for these amazing pictures you are about to see.  They SLAYED it! And Cinthanie did her own hair and makeup...so talented. These were taken at their wedding venue The Cotton Mill!!! Its so amazing!

PS...Just wait til you see her wedding dress...IM DYING to photograph it!

Chancellor's Special Announcement https://lorisparkmanphotography.zenfolio.com/blog/2016/9/chancellors-special-announcement The Chancellor's Special Announcement

These two....are such amazing souls. I met them YEARS ago when I shot Brittany's cousin's wedding. It was one of my first weddings here in Little Rock actually. We all had an instant connection and I have no shot several weddings and portraits for this crazy family. Im afraid they are stuck with me. :) 

Brittany and Cody contacted me about a month ago for a very special session. And they wanted to do it where we did their engagement session FIVE YEARS AGO!!!!! They wanted to recreate some of them. But they had a purpose behind this session. They wanted to announce that they were now FOSTER PARENTS! These two are truly angels. They melt my heart with how giving and loving they are. Seriously some of the most amazing people.

Whatever child gets to be cared for by them will be sooooooo insanely loved by so many people. Prayers for Brittany and Cody and for this new journey they have started.

​Maleah told me from the first meeting that her dress was fun. I LOVED the sleeves! I don't think I have every had a bride with long sleeves. It was so fun to play with this silhouette and with Maleah's gorgeousness. We just played and played and had a blast. I think we got some pretty stinkin awesome stuff. 

She married her sweet Jon in a beautiful intimate lakeside ceremony. Wednesdays are not usually a wedding day for LSP but I love weekday weddings, fun dresses, beautiful locations and in love couples so I was completely happy.

This girlis a soooooo much fun! We played and played and played. There are things I LOVED about this session. One of the locations is a church that her great grandfather designed. How awesome is that!!! And another spot was RIGHT NEXT TO MY HOUSE!!! I knew when I moved into my house I wanted to photograph a gorgeous bride in the willow trees. Sooooo glad Jenna made the trek to my house! She ROCKED it!!!

New Exciting Product: Living Photos!!! https://lorisparkmanphotography.zenfolio.com/blog/2015/5/new-exciting-product-living-photos New Product Alert: Living Photos

​I am THRILLED to announce that LSP is now offering LIVING PHOTOS! I have been playing around this idea for years and just got brave enough to actually do it.

 I've had several clients who allowed me to "play" and "experiment" but for now...I will show you just a little teaser! 



These are so fun! And will be included in some of my portrait and wedding packages!! I cannot wait to show you more...but since they are mainly with bridals I will have to wait till after the weddings. EEK!

If you are interested in this awesome new product please contact me. I am so excited to be doing this.

 I would LOVE to create a Living Photo for you! 


Thanks to Maggie and Aaron (pictured) for letting me pull you away from your wedding reception for a few minutes. You guys are amazing!

Cabot High Class of 2015


To say that I had fun on this shoot is an understatement. Riley contacted me and needed to get portraits done ASAP! She is a busy busy girl and Im so glad she found me to do her pictures. Riley and her posse…good grief…they kept me laughing. Not having met her before the session I didn't know what to expect. Then I found out she is a very talented actress. I LOVE SHOOTING ACTORS!!! Love love love it. She and her mom had a great idea to include several of her outfits from her favorite plays. *what a great idea* I provided for some unique and a great representation of her senior year. 

Riley is headed off to Florida for drama school (I forgot the name of it). She dreams of one day playing Minnie Mouse at Disney World. She's bound for great things! Enjoy her fun-filled session and her super fun outfits!!


Riley…you are awesome. Your smile is contagious. I can't wait to see what the future holds for you! Break a leg!!

Maternity Portraits: Pretty in Peach Mother-to-be https://lorisparkmanphotography.zenfolio.com/blog/2015/4/maternity-portraits-pretty-in-peach-mother-to-be Peach Orchard Maternity Portraits

As an artist we (I) typically don't like when people come to us with a VERY specific idea of portrait they want us to take. I usually like to be given creative freedom BUT when Micah sent me her inspiration picture and said "all I want is a picture like this" I was excited (because I loved the picture too) but scared that I wouldn't be able to get such a specific image. I scouted out a perfect location but we had to wait because the peaches weren't blooming yet but poor Micah is about to pop. Luckily a portion of the orchard was PERFECT. Light was perfect. Weather was perfect. She arrived in her custom made lace gown and it was PERFECT! So off we went…on a mission…..


I must say….we NAILED this session. We accomplished all this gorgeousness in 30 minutes!! And special thanks to her sweet hubby for holding my gear and letting me be bossy. haha And for the Collins family for letting us use their AMAZING land! 

 This little lady is going to be one lucky baby to have such awesome (and gorgeous) parents!

An Arkansas Bride: Arkansas State Capital Bridal Portraits https://lorisparkmanphotography.zenfolio.com/blog/2015/3/an-arkansas-bride-arkansas-state-capital-bridal-portraits Arkansas Bride

A Magnolia Hill Bride


FINALLY Peyton married her sweet Tracey so now I can show off her super fun and beautiful bridal portraits. Let me just say…Peyton IS SO GREAT! I seriously have the best clients. She is so easy going. Which is a great quality  to have because EVERY TIME we got together it rained. EVERY. TIME. Our first meeting…it poured. Engagement session…rain. Bridals…more rain. And even yesterday on their wedding day…sprinkles! BUT she didn't have a care in the world…because she was marrying her favorite guy Tracey but more on that later. This bridal session  was initially supposed to be downtown and more urban-ish. But due to the rain (and the Little Rock marathon) we moved indoors last minute to the Arkansas State Capitol Building. She had a super fun entourage how kept us laughing, held all my gear, and were expert dress fluffers. Take a look at my gorgeous bride Peyton. :) Leave her some love. 

One of my favorite parts of her wedding yesterday was when Tracey saw these pictures below. Peyton did these as a surprise and had them framed on the groom's table. HE WAS SHOCKED!! And totally in love with them. It was perfect. :) 


Peyton…Im a truly sad your day is over. I loved loved loved getting to know you and your awesome HUSBAND! (eek!) Enjoy your honeymoon!

Senior Class of 2015: Hannah Part 1 https://lorisparkmanphotography.zenfolio.com/blog/2015/2/senior-class-of-2015-hannah-part-1 Buffalo Island Central

Class of 2015

The Gorgeous Hannah Poe

Part 1

Hannah started out our first session saying she was kinda shy and didn't know how to pose in pictures…well…that didn't last long! She was a dream to work with! We had so much fun that they booked another session in Little Rock! More on that later!

Our first location was a gorgeous mansion in NorthEast Arkansas. We frolicked around the grounds and changed clothes a million times and LOVED it!

We share the same favorite bible verse. 

Phillipians 4:13 "I can do everything through Him who gives me strength."


For the second location we adventured to her high school gym because gorgeous girl is also an incredible athlete. She can rock heels AND sneakers. 

Always have to include a blooper! :) 


Hannah, you are a beautiful lady inside and out! Can't wait to show off your Little Rock session!! :)

An Antique Engagement: Harley and Drew https://lorisparkmanphotography.zenfolio.com/blog/2015/1/an-antique-engagement-harley-and-drew An Antique Engagement: Harley and Drew

Every time I meet a new couple and are discussing engagement ideas I ask them what sort of things they like to do together. Harley had some awesome answers and we picked the antiquing idea to run with. The lovely people at Arkansas Peddler's Antique Mall were gracious enough to let us run around their awesome property. I wanted to buy so many things. Check out this fabulous session with this super fun couple!



Can't wait for your super fun wedding in a few months! YAY!!!
