Ocken Photography in Little Rock has signed on to be the official photography company for CARTI fundraising events such as the Tour de Rock. This event  falls right in line with Bob’s love of cycling. His family participates each year by riding their bikes more than 10 miles.


Bob in LA

blog_3858-21Bob took a trip to Baton Rouge, LA (get it?) to photograph Rachel Robert and Chase Menard’s wedding at an amazing church. The St. Joseph Cathedral was originally constructed in 1789, and it was a pleasure to document a wedding in such a glorious structure. Their reception was held at the equally beautiful Old Governor’s Mansion, and Rachel made a stunningly beautiful bride.


Congratulations to Dr. Ted and Lori Jolley on their new baby, Piper. She is 5 weeks old and her sister, Lucy, is her biggest fan.


Check out Reagan Moffitt in our latest ad in Inviting Arkansas magazine. Reagan never stopped smiling throughout our entire shoot, and it was quite contagious. Because of her, the photographs are guaranteed to make you smile — or in this case laugh.

Love in Her Eyes

Noah and Shannon are getting married in New Orleans. Jennifer is shooting the wedding and Bob shot the engagement session in Little Rock, where the couple lives.  Bob said he used many of the couples ideas in the portraits session, making it a very personal group of photographs. Shannon is going to be a beautiful bride. Noah is a lucky man!

Competitive Cyclist is one of Bob’s favorite bicycle stores. It’s a 25,000 sf. space full of very fine bikes to ride. Located in North Little Rock, Arkansas, it’s a biker’s dream home. Photo by Bob Ockenblog-cc-w-keyline_98812

Portrait of Georgia

The studio is a great place to photograph until the weather gets warmer. This classic portrait of Georgia was made for her grandmother, who made the dress Georgia is modeling.

Here’s Bob, out for a bike ride on a cold, sunny day. He loves to get out in the beautiful Arkansas woods. This picture was made at a race in November.

Bob’s New Jet…

Well, it’s not exactly my jet, but it is my photograph of the jet created for my newest corporate client, West Cost Charter. This shoot was in sunny Tampa, Florida, so I am truly sorry if it was cold, or worse, icy where you are. Welcome to West Cost Charter, and everybody have a happy new year.

Pig Racing…

It might be difficult to see them with the speed of the pigs, but my kids are in the background on the right. We had a great time watching the superbowl of pig races… Oh yeah, and deciding on a Christmas tree.


A crowning moment of tree decorating. It was also the day we went to a Christmas tree farm and watched pigs race. (Only in Arkansas.)

Santa Rocks!

Blakely Brighton, 5, will be appearing on her family’s Christmas card this year. Contact your local Ocken Photography studio to schedule a holiday portrait session of your own.
