And That's a Wrap
This was an amazing year for our Team. We had an abundance of magnificent, talented, and wonderful seniors come into our studio and our hearts. We can’t thank our 2016 senior model reps enough for sharing their senior year with our studio, and for going on the many, many sessions with us!
Between the laughs, the bug bites, and the weird weather, we can’t be happier with the way our 2016 seniors looked at their sessions. We traveled all over DFW with them, from the north side of Denton to the southern area of Dallas, it was...
Blue Eyed, Blonde, and BOOT-iful
Anneliese and Olivia have been friends for as long as they can remember. With their gorgeous blue eyes that match their beautiful personalities, it’s no wonder that they gravitate to one another so easily. We adored their matching outfits that matched their eyes, and we were very excited to get started on their best friend session!
Arbor Hills Nature Preserve, with its gorgeous wildflowers and rolling hills, was the perfect place for us to photograph...
Taco Tuesday Never Looked So Good
For three athletic young women, Taylor, Mackenzye, and Haley blew us away with their modeling skills during their best friend session a few weeks back!
Having met while playing softball together, these three were thick as thieves by the time they entered high school and their bond just keeps growing stronger as the years passed by. They now find themselves entering their senior year, and when we asked Taylor to bring a friend with her to her free best friend session as part of our model program, she told us that there was no way she could pick between Mackenzye and Haley. So...
Water is Sweet, But Blood is Thicker
For a brother and sister, the Castillo siblings are one of a kind. With a bond like theirs it’s no wonder to our team that they are best friends!
We met the Castillo family at the Shops at Legacy on a bright afternoon earlier this spring. It was gorgeous out, so there were a few people walking around the beautiful pond and talking about their plans for the quickly approaching summer.
Melissa, the older of the two, is one of our amazing senior model reps and has already been with us for the Slumber Party session, and is going to be in our...
Chew Making Me CRAZY
It’s not every day that one of our seniors will ask if they can wear a Chewbacca onesie to their North Dallas Senior Photo session, but when asked it was without any hesitation that our team screamed yes!
When we first heard from Mikenzie, we expected her to be a very serious young lady that wanted no funny business. She told us that she’s not only double majoring, but she’s TRIPLE majoring at the University of Arizona next year, and she hopes to be working in the Criminal Justice field in the future. But when she whipped out the onsie, we knew that this smarty had a pretty big funny bone. Apparently at her yearbook pictures for Independence High School where Mikenzie is a senior this year, she wore a Jurassic Park T-shirt. So she...
The Perfect Match
Kailyn Gauff is another one of our awesome 2017 senior model reps, and she comes to us from Lone Star High School. You should definitely recognize her from our fantastic Slumber Party Session with Alana and Melissa! When posed with the question of who should be in her best friend session, she immediately thought of ...
Ying and Yang in the Flesh
To say that seniors Alana and Lauren are opposites is a bit of an overstatement. Although the wacky friends are different, you can tell within the first few seconds of seeing them together that they fit each other’s personalities like a glove.
Kicking off the session with a sweet gift for her best friend, Alana showed us the adorable ying and yang necklace that she bought for her and Lauren. We conspired with...
Three Things That Will Make You Happier In Life
When asked what people want most in their lives, normally the answers will range from being rich and famous to being in better shape or falling in love. At the root of all of these desires lies only one fact: everyone just wants to be happy. So how do you achieve this? Ask Prosper High School senior, Chelsea Rhodes.
We met Chelsea through her best friend Regan who had her North Dallas senior photo shoot with us earlier this spring. Although a little unused to being in front of the camera, Chelsea said that she would love to have a photo shoot with us and chose to have a Seniority session which includes three hours and two separate locations of her..
Pollen Is In The Air
As best friends go, Taylor and Cheyenne are in that category of ‘life-long’ best friends. The lovely ladies have known each other since kindergarten and that fact was very obvious to our team during their best friend session!
You should recognize Taylor from our Coffee Shop photo shoot with Annie and Maddie! We had so much fun with our 2017 models that day, and we knew that meeting Taylor's best friend ...
Best Friends, Models, Seniors In High School
As part of the Senior Model Rep program, our models receive a free best friend session. It was not a big surprise to us when Madison and Jadzia told us that they are each other’s best friends and they could not wait to have their session with us!
We met the gorgeous ladies at Arbor Hills Nature Preserve on a cloudy and humid afternoon. Our team was worried about the weather as it had been rainy and gross for the week before and we were unsure if we were about to lose some shoes in the mud or not. But as we walked the winding trails of the nature preserve,...
JFK Makes An Appearance During Senior Photo Session
Walking around quaint Downtown McKinney is always a pleasure, but Prosper High School senior, Regan Pettis, made it even more so during her North Dallas senior photo shoot!
We first me the spunky blonde and her mom, Nikki, in Downtown McKinney on a warm Saturday afternoon. Luckily for us, the impending rain disappeared and left us with a gorgeous clear Texas sky, and we immediately got to work!
It wasn’t long for us to realize that Regan isn’t just any other senior. This girl...
Photographer Fights Off Alligator With Camera Body
It was like any normal session. We started off in the brilliant sunlight of a Saturday afternoon in Texas at the Hidden Cove camping grounds, and as the sunset, we lit a campfire and brought out the marshmallows. Little did we know what the dark shadows of the night would bring to our senior’s shoot.
Four of our gorgeous 2017 models met us at the studio and caravanned to the stunning Hidden Coves camping ground in The Colony, Texas. This...
These Two Prove You Should Date Your Best Friend
It is said that you should always try to date your best friend, and Logan and Mari showed us why during their best friend session this past April.
Logan is a part of our 2017 model rep program, so as a model he received a fun session with his best friend, and although we were pleasantly surprised he chose to have Mari, his girlfriend of three years, join him on it, we soon saw why. Mari and Logan are a perfect match!
As we strolled around the pond at the Shops at Legacy, Logan and Mari told us that they had walked to Chick-fil-A on...
The Dallas Skyline Has Nothing On This Senior
Is we stood on the roof at the NYLO Hotel, we watch the ominous cloud move across the northern sky like an angry horde of bees. We also sighed in relief – we had avoided the hail and the weather that would have ruined our session!
Sophie Ervin comes to our studio from Flower Mound High School! We were so excited to photograph this unique and stunning Senior Model Rep, because she brought a few experiences that many of our seniors would love to hear about! For example – Sophie spent a year in France on her own as an exchange student. How cool is that?! She also works at an amazing bakery in Highland Village called The Flour Shop, and told us that her favorite part is helping her boss decorate the cakes and cupcakes! For this senior, we knew we had to step up our game...
Headbangers, Street Art, and Senior Pictures
If you’ve never seen a man in Chubbies, Sperrys, and a polo hat head-banging to a metal rock band in Deep Ellum, then you haven’t lived. Or, at least, you haven’t laughed as hard in amazement as we have. When we first met Tristan, his mom Heather, and his uncle Dan, we were behind the slightly sketchy 7 Eleven down on Elm St. in Deep Ellum. Deep Ellum is an amazing place to have your North Texas senior pictures done because of all of the cool textures and neat atmosphere. But be warned – there are a few crazy characters that hang around the many music venues and restaurants down there so you’re more than likely going to have one or two fun and a little strange conversations. Especially if you’re like us and take lights with you wherever you go!
We started off down one of the side streets and while we were getting Tristan warmed up for the shoot, he looked over and noted that there was a ‘frat guy’ moshing (a dance phenomenon that’s more like fighting...
Seniors Cause Triple Take
Not one, not two, but THREE stunning young ladies! The Darabadey Triplets had us oo-ing and ahh-ing during their senior photo shoot at the Arbor Hills Nature Preserve – and we just had to tell everyone about it!
It’s all thanks to Elite Senior Model Rep Gabi Norsworthy who nominated the three lovely triplets as our Dream Seniors for 2016. The Dream Senior is a way for our studio to give back to the Frisco community, and our model team nominates a friend or two who deserves some awesome senior pictures! This year, we chose the triplets, although the competition
Quarterback Gets Lost in the Deep Texas Woods
After passing the same tree for the third time, we could definitely agree that we were lost. But it was the good kind of lost. It was the kind of lost where you have an amazing North Dallas senior, a camera, and a crew that was down for jumping into creeks or hiding in the bushes to get just the right kind of light.
When 6’4” Little Elm High School senior, Austin Carter, walked up to us at Arbor Hills Nature Preserve we can definitely say we were a little...
Magic Found At A Bookstore In Denton
It was the craziest thing! Maddie opened one of the books in the Russian Literature section of the book store, and then after a flash of light – she just started to levitate! Obviously, we had to snap a photo of the occurrence!
Just kidding – we’ve been re-reading Harry Potter, so we couldn’t resist setting up a composite image of 2017 Senior Model Rep Maddie Stowers during our recent group session at Recycled Books in Denton, Texas. We had chosen the awesome bookstore for its vintage...
Sweet Dreamy Smiles
Precious smiles warm our team’s heart, and when Enzo graced us with a few yawns and a lot of sweet, dreamy smiles our hearts were nearly bursting!
Getting comfy and falling asleep on mom’s shoulder, our team was able to capture a few moments of the little family before we moved Mr. Enzo over to our big bean bag for a nap. Although he was not feeling the best, an...
Stuffed Animals and Coca Cola
Two things matter when you turn one: stuffed animals, and being cute enough to get what you want. And Mr. Lochlyn has both!
Those big blue eyes turned our team to mush, and Lochlyn’s sweet laugh rang through our studio when his mom made faces at him. His favorite part? Reading to his animals! Lochlyn loved to sit among his friends and read to them while our team caught the moment, and his smiles!
We convinced little Lochlyn to sit still for about two seconds in our coca cola wagon, but after that, he was off to get a hug from mom or to play with his stuffed animals! We were so happy to...
