Autumn’s session was so much FUN. Not only did she bring along two of her friends (and my senior models) Haley and Rachel for moral support, but she just cracks me up. She told me that she was super-awkward in pictures, but I’m just not seeing it. :P We split our time between a woodsy spot and a more urban/country look in downtown McKinney, and everything just came together perfectly.  I’m also completely jealous of her gorgeous thick hair – I wish mine looked that good straight! Enjoy the rest of senior year Autumn, I’m so glad our paths crossed!

Haley and Rachel are two of my 2014 Senior Models, and it has been a great pleasure to get to know them over the past 9 months or so. They are both beautiful inside and out, and I love seeing how much they love each other too. :) They had already been in front of my camera a couple of times by the time we got to their actual senior session, so they were ready to go!  We shot on their beautiful property out in Argyle and was it ever a photographer’s dream! It was such a fun shoot – we even got their horses in a few shots too!  These two are headed to Texas Tech to room together in the fall (watch out Lubbock!), and I can’t wait to see what the future holds for them. I’m so grateful that you two found me during during my model search, it has been such a pleasure to work together. I hope that the rest of senior year is everything you hoped it would be!

Well, with the freezing temperatures outside today, now is as good a time as any to get back on board with my blogging and catch up on my warm summer/fall sessions. :) It was pretty hot on the day of Drew’s session, but he followed me all over one of my favorite nature areas without complaint. It was fun incorporating his baseball gear too, it seems like I have worked with quite a few baseball and softball players over the last year or two! Drew’s country style was a great fit for this spot, and I love that he brought his cowboy hat along too. Thanks for a great session Drew, and I wish you the best for the rest of senior year!

In August I had the pleasure of hosting the first ever DFW Senior Shootout along with fellow photographers Jared Rey and Misti Davis. We had over 20 photographers come out to the beautiful 3825 South Bowen property to photograph six gorgeous seniors who graciously agreed to model for us. It was an absolute blast – I got to meet a lot of new photog friends and photograph some beautiful seniors, who could ask for more! And a big thanks to two of my own senior models Haley and Rachel who volunteered to model. It sure was hot, but we had some fun! :)

I could not have asked for a better start to my Class of 2014 senior portrait season than I got with Erin. We shot her session in the lovely heat of late July, but she was a trooper and looked FABULOUS the whole time thanks to the talented Amanda with Reflections DFW. Erin is very outdoorsy (she’s a camp counselor for Sky Ranch) and loves all things outside, so we went to one of my favorite natural spots for a variety of great backdrops. Erin did a fabulous job with her wardrobe, and I love the fact that we captured some different facets of her personality through her shoes – one of my favorite “prop shots” to date for sure! :) With that thick dark hair and those gorgeous eyes Erin was  a dream to photograph. I hope that your senior year is awesome Erin, thanks for letting me be a very small part of it!

Vicky was my last 2013 senior, and I couldn’t have wrapped up this year’s class on a better note! Vicky was so excited about her portrait session, I just love it when my clients are super enthusiastic. :) She had a gorgeous wardrobe to work with, and the Arts District was the perfect backdrop for the more modern look we were going for. We ended up with an absolutely perfect weather day, which made it all the more fun. Vicky is also an aspiring photographer and very involved in her church.  She is headed to Georgetown in the fall, have a fabulous freshman year Vicky!

Tori was a referral from another one of my dear 2013 seniors, and I’m so excited that they found me!  Tori’s mom really wanted something special for her senior portraits, and I’m so honored that she entrusted me with this important task.  They opted for my Uniquely {YOU} Experience, which meant that makeup artist Amanda got to come along on site with us to change up Tori’s look as we went along and touch up as needed.  So fun!  Tori and her mom were so excited about her upcoming session when we met at the consultation, I knew that I would be in for a treat.  :)  They were open to any and all of my suggestions and even let me pick through Tori’s closet to help put together outfit ideas.  When the day of the session rolled around, Tori was a breeze to photograph, she was an absolute natural in front of the camera.  We spent almost three hours hustling all over one of my favorite outdoorsy spots, and she kept a smile on her face the whole time!  Well, except when I told her not to. :P Tori is a cheerleader and volleyball player and an all-around sweet girl, and I can’t wait to see what great things are awaiting her. Best of luck Tori!

I first chatted with Alissa’s mom all the way back in the fall of 2012, so by the time April rolled around I was so excited to finally meet them in person!  I just loved reading through Alissa’s questionnaire.  She has such a unique sense of style and wanted something really simple, organic, and natural for her session. I had been kicking around the idea of shooting a floral crown for a while, and I thought it would really be a great fit for Alissa’s personality.  I was pumped that she was on board with the idea, and after talking with a photographer friend and looking around online I decided to make it myself.  It was so much fun and I was pretty pleased with how it came out.  Alissa’s bohemian Free People dress was absolutely PERFECT with it, I was in photographer heaven. :) Of course, I loved all of Alissa’s outfits, and we had a great time with some family and friends who came along to the session as well.  She has an awesome support system, that’s for sure.  Alissa is headed off to Elon University in North Carolina this fall where I have no doubt she will leave her mark.  Best of luck to you Alissa!

This was a super-special session as Jacey is the last of three children in this family and I had the pleasure of photographing all of them for their senior portraits. It’s truly such an honor when I get to develop long-term relationships with my clients and their families, and this one certainly holds a special place in my heart. :) Since Jacey is the “baby” of the family AND the only girl, I knew we would have some fun.  Jacey is a really talented actress, and I gotta say, I always love working with my theater kids. They sure make it easy!  Jacey’s mom brought the beautiful paper parasols, and they made for a really lovely backdrop to Jacey’s awesome smile.  And of course, we had to bring along the black leather chair that we used for her brothers’ sessions as well.  Jacey will be joining one of her big brothers at LSU next year, I hope that college treats you well!

Dallas senior photographer Class of 2013

I can’t believe that this school year has finally wrapped up … it seems like just yesterday I was planning some really great changes for the class of 2013 and seeing my first bookings come in. And now here we are, and what a year it has been!  As I reflect back on all of the amazing seniors I had the chance to work with, I’m just so overwhelmed with how each of them have touched my life.  What a blessing it is to be able to connect with such incredible young people while doing something I love and call it a job.  God is good!  :)  This year’s class was so diverse and so talented, I constantly found myself in awe of their accomplishments, their drive, and their servant’s hearts.  I’ve compiled a brief overview just to give you a glimpse of what I mean.  There were athletes of all sorts (cheerleaders, soccer players, swimmers, volleyball players, runners, softball players, wrestlers, and ultimate frisbee champs, to name a few), accomplished artists and musicians, both classical and modern (yes, even one with a CD on iTunes),  and talented thespians and dancers.  Across all of these activities, I worked with so many leaders - including team captains, student government, counselors and peer helpers, and youth group leaders.  This class was not only talented, but SMART too!  I’m talking about valedictorians, top 10 graduates,  and debate team champions, not to mention that this group will be attending some of the best colleges across the country.  Their hobbies include writing, reading, travel, music, art, and even a few budding photographers. :) Most importantly, this is a group who knows how to give back.  So many of them have done long term volunteer work, are active in some stellar service organizations, and have served others both here locally and across the world.  So it is with direct knowledge of how truly remarkable this 2013 class is that I can say this to each of you: You have each been abundantly blessed in your lives.  As you venture out into the world, always remember that important piece of information and continue to use those blessings to do GOOD.  I can’t wait to see what great things await you! :)
