Jonesboro Arkansas Senior Photographer | Now booking summer Senior sessions

Can you believe it’s almost July?? Summer is going to be gone before we know it and school will be starting back. Don’t let booking your Senior portrait session slip up on you. So many deadlines to keep up with, I try to help my Seniors keep up with what needs to go where and when because there is so much to remember and it goes by so fast. You need a wallet size photo for the composite, a digital file for the year book, wallets for your invitations or I can make custom invitations that are amazing and they come with envelopes with your return address already printed on them. YAY!

My most shared/viewed post on Facebook | Melanie Runsick | Jonesboro Arkansas Photographer

I get a lot of advertising from Facebook. Yes we can harp on it all we want, they’ve changed the algorithm, when you boost a post it doesn’t help the reach, people don’t see posts from business pages like they used to etc. I’ve been trying to do better about posting and blogging more (I love to talk… y’all people who know me KNOW I can talk all day but blogging….. it’s not my jam) anyway I came across another gal’s blog and she shared her most shared/viewed recipe and I got to thinking which image of mine has been viewed and shared more and I have to say it’s my little deer baby Max and the “welcome to the herd” post. It’s still one of my favorites.

North East Arkansas Photographer Melanie Runsick Photography Most Viewed Image


Over  46,000 people viewed this image! forty. six. thousand. and it was shared 328 times! WHOOP!  On a normal day my posts are viewed anywhere from 150 views (yes… UGH!) to 1800 views.  The point I’m trying to get across is if you see an image, recipe, whatever you like on a business page like it! LOVE IT, comment and share the heck out of it. Us small business owners appreciate it and Thank you for it!


P.S. I get to see Baby Max SOON so be looking for another amazing image of this precious kiddo to share the heck out of.

Jonesboro Arkansas Photographer | Newborn Session tips and tricks

Newborn sessions are one of my favorite sessions and they’re so different from a regular session so I thought I would let you know what to expect and give you a few tips to make your newborn session go a little smoother.

Newborn Photographer Jonesboro Arkansas

How to prepare for your session:

● Try to schedule your newborn session when baby is around 5 to 10 days old.

● Call or text me as soon as your baby is born so we can get your session date/time confirmed.

● Siblings, Mom & Dad are more than welcome to get in on a few images. It’s never too early for a new family portrait 🙂

● Be prepared for you newborn session to last at least an hour. If baby needs to eat or needs a diaper change I allow plenty of time.

● Dont forgot to bring anything you would like to be photographed with baby such as a toy or stuffed animal.

● Clothing- I have all kinds, colors and textures of wraps, blankets and diaper covers for baby. You’re more than welcome to bring outfits if you have something special and solid colors is usually best. When baby is tiny its hard to dress them in clothes especially 2 pieced outfits, they tend to bunch up at their little neck or you can’t keep them together in the middle so one pieced outfits tend to work better.

● Don’t forget to bring a bottle of formula or breast milk even if you’re nursing. Sometimes just a little sip is all it takes to get baby to settle.

● Pack a pacifier even if baby doesn’t seemed interested in a pacifier. Sometimes it helps to soothe.

Newborn Portrait Session

What to expect during your newborn session:

●Baby will wake up and it’s ok. I love seeing baby’s eyes and we can sooth baby back to sleep.

●Baby will cry.

●Baby will need to feed more than usual.

● I will gladly sooth baby and help all I can so parents can relax.

● Session usually takes at least a hour. It’s a slow, relaxed process. I’ve had people tell me I have the patience of Job…… I had a daycare for 12 years in my home. I have a lot of patience 🙂

Jonesboro Family Photographer | Cooper is turning 1

Cake smash and an aftermath bath session for this adorably bubbly dude! I cannot believe he will be turning 1 soon. He loved the cake & would rather pick it off the sidewalk, typical boy 🙂 and bath time was a hit after his sweet Mom fetched us some warm water….. (THANK  YOU MEGAN) still working on that situation at the studio. Is he not the cutest little guy ever?!?

I got to do his newborn/family pics (posting one below for a throwback) Look how he has grown!
