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...
Light as a Feather, Fluffier Than a Pillow
They were absolutely everywhere. Our team and models stared in amazement at the mess we had just made, and then we just burst into laughter!
North Dallas 2017 Senior Model Reps Alana, Melissa, and Kailyn met us at the studio in Frisco, Texas for a fun-filled and slightly nostalgic slumber party group session. Equipped with popcorn, pizza, and sodas the seniors shared funny stories about their old slumber parties and talked about how excited they were for the upcoming year.
That’s when our team brought out the big guns: three over-stuffed feather pillows, and permission to make the biggest mess they could! It wasn’t too long before the room was covered in feathers, and although there was some sneezing, it was between laughter and joking. Our...
Prettier Than A Sunflower
Flowers are beautiful, but there is nothing more gorgeous than a newborn baby girl. Catherine taught us that lesson a few weeks ago during her newborn session in our studio.
We had a blast posing this sleeping beauty in our favorite props, a rustic bucket with a comfy fur, and she fell right asleep for our team. Our favorite thing about Catherine? Those cheeks! They were so precious the entire session that her mom had a hard time not landing a few kisses on them! We also just loved playing with the different headbands we have in our studio, and we can’t wait to get some more!
We are so excited to be working with this...
Caffeine Is The Name Of The Game
As a nation that is constantly moving towards progress and goals, coffee is a strong factor in our day to day lives. Or at least it is for our team and senior model reps Taylor, Maddie, and Annie!
The lovely ladies met us for their group session in Downtown McKinney at an adorable coffee shop called fILTER(ed) to kick off their North Dallas Senior pictures. The amazing staff there granted us the ability to photograph in their little shop and with all of the neat things they have in there.
Laughing over coffee, our models posed for us and let us capture their budding friendships and jokes! One of the managers...
Guess What - You're Adopted
With so many babies and young children in need in the DFW area, we were elated when Nathan’s mom brought him into the studio for his newborn photos. Newly adopted, Nathan is already deeply in love with his mommy and the amount of love in the studio sparked a few tears from our team.
Nathan’s mom, Courtney, had been wanting a little boy for some time now, and when she got a call from their adoption agency that she had been matched with Nathan’s biological parents, she was elated! Nathan came home with her and her husband a few days later to a household full of sisters and more love than the little guy could handle.
And Nathan’s sisters dote...
From A Senior's Perspective: Chelsea
Although we love all of our clients, because our Senior Model Reps are with us all year long, we are able to have a special bond with these amazing young people! We love that we get to hang out with them as they move through their senior year, make big decisions for college, and help them have some gorgeous photos that they will have for forever.
Senior Model Rep, Chelsea Roemer, had a great time with us during her senior year at Richardson High School. Over the year, Chelsea joined us for multiple shoots, had her hair and makeup done by our fantastic hair and makeup artists, and showed off her amazing volleyball..
We Fell for the Burrell Family
With 3 girls, it’s no wonder that this family was so pumped for their family photos! All three of the awesome sisters were dressed to fit their personalities, and it definitely cemented the idea in our minds that just because you’re related that does not mean you’re exactly the same!
Even though their personalities are so different, their love for one another and their parents shown brightest during their session at a cute park across the street from the studio. We met the Burrell family when Lauren, the middle sister, contacted us about her senior portraits back in October...
