Capture your life.


I create a blog post for most of my sessions. I also post newsletters, product specials and other fun things to read. See my most recent postings here!


If you like my work, visit my flickr page! I keep my non-client related images here.


Addicted to Pinterest? I am. I've been ripping pages out of magazines since I can remember. Now I can do so online! Follow me here. Photography by Arika Reed has its own board!


Keep in touch! I post specials and a variety of images here. "Like" and comment often to have my page posts continue to show in your news feed!

Why choose Photography by Arika Reed?


Professional quality service, equipment and products. After committing to a session, you can expect informative and comprehensive emails, session reminders, and a receipt for your records. Once your photos are ready to view, they will be presented in a beautiful online gallery with a convenient download and purchasing option. I will touch base with a final follow-up, and arrange in-person meetings to discuss print orders and inquiries (if desired).


No boring photo sessions here! Be prepared to see me in silly hats and toting cat toys. The best sessions are when my clients are relaxed and having fun. I encourage you to trust me to bring out the best in your session. You don't have to worry about your kids behaving a particular way, or constantly pointing to the camera. My loyal clients and I have an inside joke about our sessions being "the best day ever!"


Before you know it, today will be over and the present will turn to the past. Children grow up and the years pass so quickly. Make your memories last a lifetime and have me capture them today! I've heard of many clients saying, "I wish I had done this sooner," but never "I wish I would have waited."
