Arden Prucha Photography bio picture
  • HI! I am Arden Prucha Jenkins - a photographer located in Fort Worth, Texas! I specialize in portraiture and more recently weddings! Please take a look around and get to know my work, my style, my life, and me.

    How did I get into photography? Well, everyone has their story right? Looking back I realize that the little photog was in me all along, without even knowing it! I picked up a camera when I was around 8 and started snapping photos - I even posed my neighbors, animals, and Barbies for photos (seriously I made a Barbie wedding and photographed the entire thing). 

    Who am I? Well, I was a teacher for three years, but was able to leave that job to focus on photography and my two beautiful children!  I married a man who I am totally smitten over and he is crazy supportive of me.  I am a bargain shopper with expensive taste.  God allows me to trust this world with less fear and more hope and trust.  Music makes my heart flutter - so thankfully I married a very talented musician. I wish I could carry a tune, but unfortunately I cannot. My favorite month is October (dreamy light) and I miss my convertible - oh the beautiful wind .  When I was little I was amazingly or perhaps annoyingly hyper - and ate more food than all of the boys and was faster than most of them too.  I was a dancer and I love to write and converse.  When I am around people I get more energy and become alive. The differences between women and men intrigue me and kiddos make my heart melt. Photos... well, they fill my heart.


    Thank you so much for stopping by, I hope you enjoy what you see.

Change is GOOD

I will no longer post on here, but have such an attachment to all of these posts, they will forever be here to relate back to!

I politely ask that you head on over to:

Kelly Gewalt - I love your black and white photos. How do you get them to look so bright and contrasty looking, without blowing out the highlights on their skin?

Your reply would be much appreciated!!

A+C LOVE: Peek

These two have made it a tradition to have photos taken of the two of them during the holidays.

I was so happy to capture this year’s LOVE session.

I also think it’s very important to have photos together, without kids.

It’s rare that couples keep up a photo sessions when they don’t yet have children, but wouldn’t you love to have these in your home?

You never know what late December Texas weather will be.

Fortunately for us – it was absolutely perfect.

Enjoy these two love birds.

Thanks A & C, y’all rocked it!

Ashley - Beautiful pictures of a beautiful couple! Once question – How did you get up above them like that?October 30, 2012 – 10:12 am

Lacey - That is so great that they do this! And each photo is just gorgeous … I’m sure they will be back again with you next year!December 30, 2011 – 4:51 pm

T+T Engaged: Peek

Loved these two. A good looking, fun and adorable pair.

We rode over to their friend’s house on Eagle Mountain Lake.

A truly unique location to frame this beautiful couple!

Taylor and Thomas kept me laughing and really endured some chilly winds on this cold December day!

Much Love.

Merry Christmas 2011

Another year is wrapping up and I am shocked that it is already here.

Last Christmas we announced to our family that we were expecting baby number three!

As I reflect back on 2011 I begin to grin and feel very warm inside.

God has brought so many blessings to us this year.

Through time and questioning we were blessed with a healthy home birth and beautiful daughter: EDEN aka EDIE or Easy E.

Already four months now – she is happy, sleeps well and has such a calm demeanor.

Parx turned two and has accepted her baby sister very well.

She has entered the typical ‘two year old’ syndrom. Lots of fits, screaming, and is super attached to mama.:)

Pierson is EIGHT! now & continues to blossom in school and is an amazing big brother.

He helps around the house, loves on all of us and is top of his class!

Paul and I have been blessed in our jobs.

He has a position that he loves, is fun and flexible… and we are able to have a wonderful life because of it!

I am smitten with ‘Arden Prucha Photography’ and plan on making some big changes next year.

This year I definitely went through some more growing pains – in business and in family.

Having three children is a full [OVER]time job.  Balancing has been a lot harder than I anticipated.

Anyone who has worked with, visited or chatted with me – surely sees I do NOT have it all together.

However, I am lucky for the sanity, happiness and good things in life I do have.:)

Our families and friends are so full of support and love – helping us whenever we need it.

We truly are blessed.

God is OH so good.

Today I am extra grateful for finding my way to the Lord.

It’s from HIM that I have been gifted:

A beautiful and gracious family, understanding and generous friends, a plethora of ‘things’ I need and want, never going without, a passion that I continue to learn from and such complimentary and heart warming fans…

I thank each person in my life.  For those of you who continue to encourage me, without every having MET please know that your words are fulfilling, uplifting and push me to be a better person and photographer.

So today I hope each one of you has a beautiful end to 2011.

May you have a blessed and very merry CHRISTMAS.

Heidi - Beautiful family!!! I found out we are moving across the country to dallas, tx this june and i am excited b/c i want you to take our family pictures!!! :) December 25, 2011 – 12:41 am

Jane - I thought this was a beautiful post! Love the family photos too! just precious.

ps, it is ok to have a grammar fail like, “Chirstmas” above, because you, like myself, have three children. lol

Hope you and yours have a VERY merry ChristmasDecember 24, 2011 – 4:40 pm

Baby N: Peek

Such a beautiful family.

Very thankful for their sweet hearts and compassion!

Meet Baby Nolan, an 8lb 9oz eight day old baby boy!

He was perfect and slept the ENTIRE shoot – what a good boy.

We finished off when Nolan woke up with some family shots!

Jenn Sawtelle - LOVE these! The shot with the feet is just precious as is the one where Nolan is checking out big bro — Great captures!December 23, 2011 – 10:16 am
