I've been a member of the Fayetteville Chamber of Commerce for a few years now. I've been involved in more networking and going to chamber events. When Shana at the chamber asked if I would be interested in being a Diplomat, while I was honored, I was a little hesitant, not knowing what was involved. After asking around, I'm glad I did. For those who do not know what a chamber diplomat is, they're a volunteer representative of the chamber who attends chamber events (morning breakfasts, after hours, ribbon cuttings, special events and meals on wheels). Since I've been one only 7 months, I've really enjoyed getting to know my fellow diplomats and especially being a part of the community. Being able to see the new businesses and get to know about them is a blessing.
I've tried to attend as many events as possible to be a part, as a result, I've been one of four selected as Diplomat of the Month for the past 3 months. If you want to be a part of the community, join your chamber and get involved, you'll be glad you did.

Living in a college town has many opportunities and privileges, especially to the business owners. We occasionally get parents visiting their children at the U/A and want a family portrait while here. I had the honor to photograph the Flory family from Plano Texas in October. The weather was perfect and the scenery was great on campus. We decided to go to the back side of Carnall Hall for the photos since there was a wedding taking place on campus in front and didn’t want to distract from the event. I’ve never created a family portrait in this area by the colors seemed to go well with their clothing. We also created images on the porch and captured a great variety. The Flory’s were a pleasure to photograph, great expressions from everyone and a fun and enjoyable sessions. They now have portraits on their walls that they will cherish for years and passed down through generations to come.

Meet the Morris Family! They are yet another reason I love photographing families! They were so nice to photograph, easy going, open to walking around looking for new areas to create images and always with fun energy. I was looking forward to this session for a couple of reasons. First, the day started off really warm for a February day, I thought this was going to be awesome. As Arkansas normally does, the temp dropped and got really windy. You can’t tell it from the photos but the kids were shivering in between shots but always with a smile on their face, they were GREAT!
Secondly, after many years of creating thousands of photographs of high school seniors on Dickson St, I had never photographed a family. Andrea had mentioned something down there so I said, sure why not! I’m so glad she asked because the images turned out GREAT! I’m always looking for something different, a way to make the next portrait better and unique, this was a great idea.“Keith did an amazing job of capturing my family and their spirits. The photos turned out beautifully and we ended up purchasing extras for the grandparents! Highly recommend Branch Photography for all your family photography needs.” Andrea Morris
Thank you Morris family for another great Family Session and I know you’ll be enjoying your wall portrait for YEARS to come!

Some families you just plain look forward to seeing, don’t get me wrong, I love all my clients, I look forward to seeing them any time, any where. There are some that just make you laugh out loud! The Crozier family is one of those families. Neil and Bambi own Car Clinic
in Lowell and they’re the same way when you go to their shop, always cutting up and having a good time (even though there is always the typical business owner stresses). I’ve had the opportunity to photograph not only their family, but their daughter, Kirsten’s, senior portraits as well as several commercial images for Car Clinic ( you can see a VERY LARGE image on one of their walls in their waiting area).
You can just look at the photos and tell, ‘wow, they were having a good time’. I just roll with it, and capture images as we go, they’re all priceless!

I love photographing families, they’re always here because of the love and pride they have in their family. They want to show that admiration in portrait art that will be enjoyed for many years and passed down through generations, becoming more valuable with each passing year. I can only imagine the great compliments and comments when guests come over to visit.
Meet the Hornberger family. They were a pure pleasure to photograph, such beautiful kids and such a joy to photograph. After the initial consultation, I had an idea of the colors they were going to wear and planned the background accordingly. My goal is to have the faces the primary emphasis of the image. We always have a great time during these sessions, there’s laughing and smiling, which makes for an enjoyable experience and very pleasing images.
