The Holt Family | Arkansas Family Photographer


I’ve known the Holts for years. I’ve known them since I was a preteen and they were newlyweds. They were actually my first couples shoot ever. That’s right. I owe my success as a couples photographer to Rachel and Wiley. They were the perfect couple to practice on because they are so silly, fun, and in love.

They contacted me in 2017 to do a family session of them ,and although at the time I didn’t really photograph families, I didn’t hesitate to say yes. I knew the Holts would be a blast. And because of them, I love photographing small families now!

I was so excited when Rachel contacted me again for a family session in October. There is nothing I love more than hanging out with them and photographing their family dynamic. Rachel actually told me that her daughter Zoey had been so excited about this year’s session that she talked about it for a week leading up to it! (Same, Zoey. Same.) As you’ll see, Zoey worked that camera. She’s got sass, just like her parents.

If you don’t know the Holts, you need to. They’re so genuine and silly, and if I had the ability to adopt a family to be a part of mine, I’d definitely adopt them.
