Hunter Hall

HCH Photos



So, a little bit about me… I have loved taking pictures for just about as long as I have had the ability to do so. My first camera was a new cell phone when I was 12. I kept the passion and eventually got a “real camera” for Christmas as a teenager. This hobby grew into something that I actually started doing for other people, and I started getting paid. I kept working at it and molding it into a legitimate business. Then, in November of 2019, I made it official. HCH Photos became my official business. The saying “when you do what you love, you never work a day in your life” is very true, but also very false. The facts are that you end up working way more than the average person, but if you truly love it, it doesn’t feel like meaningless work. There are far more hours spent giving every part of yourself to your “job,” but the freedom of spirit is unmatched. So, do what you love. You won’t regret it.

EmmaG Photography


I am a wife to my other half,
a mom to our precious baby girl,
& the one who holds the camera.

I never saw myself going down the path to photography. It all started when my sister in-law needed help photographing my other sister in-laws wedding! I owned a hobby camera, and that’s all it ever was. That week after shooting the wedding, I knew it’s what I wanted to do! Fast forward to 2022, two years into doing what I love, I have found my purpose.

I want to celebrate with you. New beginnings, milestones, celebrations, & even the ordinary.

Clark Sanders

Clark Sanders Photography


I have been a portrait photographer for almost 20 years and I love to create portraits that you will be proud of now and years from now.  If you want something different, I specialize in high school senior portraits with a cinematic flare for clients who truly want something unique and valuable for their seniors. I also photograph business headshots and individual and team sports photos for school and leagues!

When you schedule a portrait session with me, just bring yourself, your outfits and leave the rest to me. You’ll enjoy a relaxed experience with no over posing, beautiful, dramatic and flattering lighting whether we’re using studio lights or the gorgeous natural light God gave us. Call, text or email me to get your session started or to just to meet up with me to find out more details.

My studio is located at 1638 Hwy 62/412 in Highland, Arkansas, across the highway from the Highland School District Administration office.

Layken Hutchins

GypsySoul Photography


Hey there! Thank you for taking the time to check out GypsySoul Photography. My name is Layken Hutchins and I’m located in Batesville, AR. I’m a full-time photographer by trade, but my favorite title is “Aunt Layk.” I have three wild nephews and one sassy niece! To be honest, photography was never a profession I envisioned for my future, I even hated having my picture taken as a kid. When I found out I was going to be an aunt for the first time in 2018, I decided to get a hobby camera just to take pictures of my sweet nephew for fun. By 2019 I had a beautiful little niece to photograph as well! Not long after, I decided to take the plunge by turning my side gig into a career. Countless bookings, a handful of magazine publications, and two more precious nephews later… here I am! GypsySoul has blossomed more than I could have ever dreamed and I’m so excited to see where this journey will take me. Would you like to come along?

Hi! I’m Destiny, a self-taught natural light photographer who loves capturing timeless photos. I am a fur mama to a spoiled blue heeler and a wife to an amazing husband of 3 years. I work full time at Economart pharmacy as a pharm. tech. Basically, if I am not at work or spending time with family, I am out taking pictures! I have been taking pictures since July 2019 and hope to one day go full time photography. I couldn’t do this without God and His undeserving love.

Ryan Etheridge

Ryan Etheridge Photography


Hi, my name is Ryan. I started my photography journey about 10 years ago when my first nephew was born and I just had to have a professional camera. Ever since the first picture I took of him I was hooked on learning everything I could about the camera and photography! After almost ten years of practicing on family in July of 2020 I decided to start Ryan Etheridge Photography.
