Such a fun session! The Best of Dallas: Fort Worth Botanical Gardens

As we make our way through our list of DFW’s best landmarks, our time to venture out to Fort Worth’s Botanical Gardens had arrived! Senior Model Reps Angela, Erin, and Isabel came out with us to enjoy the amazing weather and gorgeous views the gardens provide! We definitely should have planned on leaving the studio earlier than we did, because we ran into some pretty gnarly traffic on 121! We were almost worried we would miss some optimal “golden hour” light, but thank goodness we were able to make it to the gardens

Such a fun session! Video Games, Tshirt Collection, and LOTS of Socks

With a world full of pixels, anything is possible. This is one of the many reasons why Liberty Christian Academy High School senior, Dante, wants to go to school next year to study to become a game developer! We had the pleasure of working with Dante for his senior photos and we learned quite a bit about this wonderful north Dallas senior!

Dante is the kind of guy who not only loves video games, but has a very strong faith as well. Active with his church and a leader for youth group, Dante loves spreading the word of God and praying with his family. He is also...

Such a fun session! Hear It From a Senior: Maddie Cox

Maddie is one of our lovely 2017 Senior Model Reps from Lone Star High School! She sent us this lovely message and we needed to share it with everyone:

"The Tyler R. Brown Photography Company is nothing short of amazing! My senior pictures were everything I could have ever wanted and beyond! Working with their team was such an amazing experience all around! When I first started to choose my locations they were so helpful in throwing in suggestions of places with such character that I had never heard of.

That’s one of the many amazing parts of being a Senior Model Rep, you get to travel around the DFW area and view so many wonderful places with such character that are so unique that you would have never even thought of...

Such a fun session! Roses Are Red and Violet is Alana's Hair Color

Alana is a diamond in the rough and an amazing Top Model! Instead of one regular session, she wanted three mini sessions spread out through the year. We LOVED this idea, especially because Alana’s hair is ever changing.

Our first session was in Deep Ellum, which is perfect fit for Alana’s bright personality! We took full advantage of all the amazing murals in the area and had a few run ins with the locals for a full experience!

Our second session was at Arbor Hills in Plano...

Such a fun session! Pretty Flowers and Smelly Creeks

A popular spot in Dallas, Texas for senior photos is the gorgeous Dallas Arboretum where you can see all of the stunning flowers and water features that they have to offer! The only downside is that the arboretum closes at 5pm – which most people know that from the months of March – November means that we will be shooting at the hottest time of the day. That didn’t deter Alvarado High School senior, Taylor Raby, though – and we are so glad it didn’t!

Taylor, her mom, her nephew, and her boyfriend all met us at the studio on a bright Saturday morning for hair and makeup. We chatted about the beautiful day, as well as the heat which for a Saturday in November was in the 90’s (Texas, right?). We

Such a fun session! Senior on the Prairie

Ally Smith isn’t a whole like the characters from Little House on the Prairie, but being a Texas senior definitely means that we are plenty of prairies, fields, and just generally open land in abundance. And this particular prairie was right behind her house!

We met Ally and her family at their home out on some cattle land in Celina, Texas. We took a few photos around the pool and when our team saw the stunning acres their home is backed up to, we asked if we could hop the fence to grab a few photos! The Smiths are good friends with the neighbors who own the land, and after a quick phone call we h

Such a fun session! Lost? This Senior Will Find You Wherever You Are

It is not every day that you meet a senior like Josie Drury from Alvarado High School! We were so pumped for this session because Josie brought Moose, her beautiful blood hound, to her senior shoot! These awesome duo works for a non-profit volunteer organization called Search One Rescue Team, or SORT for short. These amazing people donate their time and effort to...

What a crazy time! We're Just MAD About Our Seniors

The idea of a post-apocalyptic world is not a new one. There are countless movies that are set in this fantastical setting (Mad Max, The Hunger Games, Maze Runner, etc.) and countless authors that have spurred the need to see what our future could look like should there be a nuclear war or some landscape changing natural disaster. We decided it was high-time that we dip our hand in the preverbal pool – and put our own twist on this same idea...

Such a fun session! Senior Nearly Dies During Photo Shoot

Texas weather being Texas weather, the summer this year lasted much longer than it normally does. We had a few cold front pop through, but because there was not a full freeze, the evil mosquitos that plague Dallas never really died. So when we decided to explore an abandoned building in Downtown Celina for Wakeland High School senior Jake Ellsworth, it shouldn’t have surprised us that not even bug spray could keep us safe.

We met Jake on the

Such a fun session! Senior Songbird will Steal Your Heart

Annie Kagerer is a lot like many of our other seniors. She’s gorgeous, smart, and very kind – something that most people say that seniors of her generation are not. But Annie is not only these things – she also has a talent that can’t be seen, but rather, can be heard.

Having been a senior model rep with our studio since last March, we had no idea how stunning Annie’s voice was until her mother, Patricia, showed us a recording and we were blown away! Annie’s talents don’t stop there though. She uses her powers of organization to help run Best Buddies, a program that pairs high school students with other students

Cristal is gorgeous! Fort Worth Senior Squeezes In Last Minute Session

With the last dregs of summer and the fading heat of August came our last 2016 senior. No, we’re not mistaken, we definitely meant 2016, not 2017!

Cristal Marquez may have been a little late to the game when she came to us for her senior pictures a full two months after she graduated, but that’s just how much these photos meant to this outstanding 2016 Fort Worth senior! Because of issues with work, her brother having a new baby, and trying to enjoy...

So beautiful! Stunning Senior Summer Photo Shoot

With the start of the school year and football season, it’s no wonder that our busy 2017 seniors want to have their senior photo sessions as soon as possible! Most people like to ask us what the best time of year for senior pictures to be done is and our answer almost every time is the summer and fall for Texas seniors. As every Texan knows, it’s hot in July and August. But that shouldn’t deter you from having your photos done! Summer is a wonderful time for senior pictures, as senior model rep, Tyler Crew, can tell you!

We began her session at Arbor Hills Nature Preserve, and after a good hike, itchy grass, and splashing through...

Alana and Maddie love to read! 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...

Lochlyn sits in his wagon! 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...

Taylor loves her senior pictures! 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...

Taylor loves her senior pictures! 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...

We love baby Liam! Join Us For A New Adventure

Welcome to our very first blog post as newborn photographers!

As most people in Frisco know, we are one of the prominent senior photographers in the area. So, we’re sure everyone is wondering: why babies? Well, it all started with a pregnancy test. My wife, Stacia, brought the fateful stick to me with a smile on her face. “Surprise!” she had said, and I nearly fainted.

If you think that modeling is as easy as it looks, then Riley, Lauren, and Sophie could tell you a thing or two.

Thankfully, these lovely ladies have modeling experience. While Riley and Sophie are a part of our 2016 Senior Model Team, Lauren had a Model for a Day session with us earlier this year. Normally, we wouldn’t ask models outside of our Senior Model team to join us on a group shoot, but Lauren is Riley’s best friend and it was her birthday!

If you know someone who owns a Jeep, you know that it’s serious business – seriously fun business! The ‘Jeep culture’ that has taken over America is nothing but pure awesome, and we were lucky enough to hang out with Carrollton Christian Academy Senior Devin Daryanani on one Saturday afternoon, and his beautiful white Jeep.

Devin and his mom, Kelli, headed up to our studio on one of these glorious Saturdays this past January when the temperature was in the mid-60s and the sun...

Nathalia looks like a queen on her throne! Go Cruzin' With Our Team

Pardon the pun, but when you have an opportunity as good as that, would you pass it up? Of course not! That’s also what we told Lone Star High School Senior, Nathalia Cruz, when she came to us saying that one of her friends was willing to let us use their mansion as a backdrop for Nathalia’s senior portraits!

When we go to what Nathalia called ‘the house’ we were stunned. Hidden in a neighborhood, the ‘house’ was a sprawling masterpiece. Gorgeous paintings covered the walls and were reflected in the gorgeous marble flooring. With beautiful antique furniture and wide windows, the space was breath taking and had our team gasping every time we entered ...

Rachel looks killer in this close up! The Christmas Blues Can't Get These Two Seniors

The bells are jingling, kids are caroling, trees are sparkling, and couples are attempting to ice skate without breaking an ankle. That’s right: it’s Christmas time in Texas.

When Rachel and Maddie met our team at Frisco Square it was mildly cold at 60 degrees. As most Dallas Texans are aware, the weather has its own mind and will and the weather men can only guess at what the temperature will be on a day to day basis. We chatted with the lovely two Senior Model Reps, Maddie Snowden, a senior at Heritage High School, and Liberty...

Georgia rocks this session! Beautiful Senior Portraits Made at Stunning Aubrey Horse Ranch

Talk about breathtaking. Our team stared in awe as Georgia Scalfano, a senior this year at Trinity Christian Academy, jumped out of the car and gave her friend a big hug. We were totally unprepared for the sight before us, and we’re sure our faces were a sight to behold.

Little did we know that the week before her Model for a Day session that Georgia would come down with appendicitis! Determined to have her senior portraits done, Georgia and her mother came to the studio in November and declared with a flourish that she was going to “have this senior portrait session if it was the last thing I do!” We laughed and assured her that we would take...

Sarah is just stunning! Can You Be As Stunning As This Senior

Senior Sarah Khan met our team at the studio and we immediately knew that we were in for a fun shoot. If you know Sarah, then you know that she is quick to smile but has an arsenal of sass underneath, so it was no surprise that this...

We know the saying is that someone is ‘thrown for a loop’ but we couldn’t pass up the invariable pun for Lauren’s favorite sport. Lauren McKeen is a senior this year at Frisco Liberty High School, and a star player on their varsity basketball team. While having her hair and makeup done, Lauren told our team that she plans on playing in college next year and we can’t wait to see where she decides to go!

As we worked through a few poses in the studio to loosen up, Lauren told us that she lives in Newman Village just down the street from the studio! So we...

Lauren is just stunning! Senior Blows Photographer Away

We trudged up the hill of Mt. Zion Cemetery to the music of honking horns, bulldozers, and the general white noise of construction. The once gorgeous hill located off of 423 and mere minutes from our studio, was now surrounded by dirt mounds and bright orange cones. You would think that we would just throw in the hat and move on to a different location. But, no. Our team was determined to show off Liberty High School Senior, Lauren Burrell, and to capture some bright and lovely photos of her among the tall grass and trees that Mt. Zion is well-known for.

It’s no surprise to our team that we were able to grab beautiful shots of Lauren, even with John Deere singing his heart out just behind her. This All-American Diver is no stranger to focus, and she just smiled through the noise and as...

In lieu of our chilly situation, we decided to grasp the expectant hand of opportunity and forge out into the wintry weather for a photo shoot!
