Diplomat of the Year

Dip_OTY

Being a Diplomat for the Fayetteville Chamber of Commerce takes time, but is rewarding with the new friends you make, meeting new business owners and being a bigger part of the community. As a Diplomat, we are representatives of the chamber at business ribbon cuttings, Morning Coffee events, Business After Hours, driving for Meals on Wheels and other voluntary events. The more I volunteered and was out meeting new people and learning more about the new things going on in Fayetteville, the more I enjoyed it.

I became a diplomat for the Fayetteville Chamber of Commerce, officially, January 2017, in November I shared the honor of being Diplomat of the Year with my friend George Turner, University of Arkansas. We were tied with the amount of work we had done. I was very surprised when it was announced at the annual Chamber Banquet by Patrick Harrington, Lewis Automotive. This year has flown by and I'm thankful to have gotten to know the fellow diplomats who also give so much of their time.

Karli's Senior Portraits

When did time start going by so fast? It started by going to bed on Friday night and waking up to Monday morning, now just as I get used to writing 2016, it's almost 2018.

I first photographed Karli at a photography workshop in 2018, she and her sister were such cuties to work with, very nice and cooperative. As a result, I've photographed their family since in 2011 and recently in September at the same time I photographed Karli's senior pictures, wow time has flown by, just ask her parents. Karli is now a senior at Shiloh Christian school and captain of the cheer squad, she is a great painter and loves art. Above all, she and her family are some of the nicest families I've ever photographed. Karli was a delight to photograph, always in a great mood, kind and polite, a true Christian young lady.

Capturing her personality was easy, her smile says it all. At her permission, I also threw in a variety of expressions, and, even though she's a naturally upbeat and happy young lady, her non smiling images looked awesome as well. I've had the honor to be the senior photographer for seniors from all over NW Arkansas over the many years, I do my best to provide them the latest and best quality senior photography that their friends will rave about.

Bentonville High Senior

Meet Joe, a senior at Bentonville High School.  He graduated early and is working part time in addition to working out to stay in shape before heading off to college in Mizzou this fall. I always enjoy photographing seniors, hearing their future plans and the enthusiasm and drive they have. If I'm lucky, I get to see them years down the road and hear what they're doing and how their life has turned out. (www.branchseniors.com)
