Cheerleader Turns Senior Model For a Day
Hanah Simmons is no stranger to hard work. This Liberty High School senior is the daughter of two gymnasts who run a cheer and gymnastics program in North Texas with their own gym! She also works as a trainer at an American Ninja Warrior type gym and she told us how fun it was to try out all of the obstacles as well as teach others how to traverse them safely!
But when we scheduled a full
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...
How to Slay Your Senior Session
For most of us born before the 21st century, keeping up with the newer terminology of our current 2017 seniors and the other ‘young people’ of our society can be rather challenging. But it wasn’t hard for our team to learn what the word ‘slay’ means to our current seniors when Prosper High School senior Sydni Moss walked into our studio last October!
To 'slay' does not
A Senior Who's Smile is Brighter Than the Sun
Meeting Creekview High School senior Laura Doocy is what convinced our team that we needed her to be a part of our 2017 senior model rep team. Smart, stunning, and talented, Laura is also super sweet and funny to boot!
We met Laura at The Style House after one our hair and makeup team members was finished polishing off her look for her 2017 senior photos. Bright blue eyes and Laura's brilliant smile told our team that we were going to head out to Arbor Hills Nature Preserve to start
Nothing Can Hold This Senior Down - Especially Rain
In our business, it's not unusual to be halfway to the location of a North Texas senior session and for the skies to suddenly darken and open up without any warning. This is what happened to Maddie Stowers when we were just finishing up her hair and makeup in our studio in Frisco, Texas.
It was sprinkling in Frisco, so our team decided that we would just head out to Downtown McKinney and try to see what we could get! We're so glad that we did, we
Smart, Sassy, and Stunning Senior Pictures
You know it’s going to be a good shoot when your model walks in with her fashionable outfits pre-planned, jewelry hanging neatly from the hangers, and shoes that match each ensemble to perfection.
This isn’t senior model rep, Melissa Castillo’s, first shoot with us though. As part of our program, Melissa has been in at least three other sessions, including our slumber party session as well as our vintage ice cream parlor session earlier this year! We’ve also had a blast at her best friend session with her brother Damien
To Be or Not To Be Isn't A Question on This Senior's Mind
For a senior in our day in age, figuring out what you want to do with your life is the biggest and hardest question to answer around. But when we asked the lovely Gillian, a senior at Plano West Sr. High School, what she wanted to study in school, it took less than a millisecond for her to tell us about her goals for Broadway.
While she was getting her hair and makeup done by one of our hair and makeup artists, Gillian told us about the many different parts she had held over the years under the stage lights both at school and in professional companies.
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...
Senior Nearly Melts in Prom Dress
Our team can definitely say that we all almost melted during this one, folks. Allison Lewis is probably the toughest senior we have on the team this year – and she can look amazing even in a million layers of chiffon in Texas in the middle of July.
We started out the day at our studio in Frisco, Texas, in the wonderful air conditioning. After getting her hair and makeup done by our team,...
Be the King of Your Castle
If Micah Lloyd was in charge of the world, baseball would be a year-round sport. With a bright smile and a sunny attitude, Micah told us that his high school, Hebron High School, nearly made it to state this past year – which is why he waited so long to have his senior pictures done!
After graduating last Monday, we finally got to meet Micah and his mom, Capri. The rain prevented us from getting out to take Micah’s photos, but the sunshine was well worth the wait. We snagged a few photos at their lovely...
Wallflowers Have Nothing on These Wildflowers
To say that best friends Haylee and Tyler are outgoing is an understatement. With Tyler’s easy-going laugh and Haylee’s bright smile, it was amazing to see them photographed together.
With completely opposite complexions, you would think they would look awkward side-by-side, but these two complimented each other on the two different sessions we had with them. See, as models they were in a group session together and as Top Models for our team, they also received a free best friend session! So we had to snag a few of them together at the Camping group session at Hidden Cove, and of course blended them in with their best friend ...
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...
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 ...
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..
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,...
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...
Can You Be As Stunning As This Senior
It was a gorgeous day. Fall is our favorite time of year to take senior portraits in North Dallas. The weather is cool, but not too cold, the leaves on the trees are beginning to turn, and the skies are clear and rain free for the most part.
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...
Senior Falls In Creek
This stunning senior model rep didn’t actually fall into the creek at Arbor Hills Nature Preserve – she willingly (and quite gracefully we might add) laid down in the cold creek for a unique photo op.
Lone Star High School senior Morgan Stewart is not a stranger to hard work. With a spring in her step, she waltzed into our studio, smile on her face and hair up in a ponytail. Morgan told our team while one of our hair and makeup artists was working her magic that not only is she a senior for her drill team, the Rangerettes, but that she also works part-time at Chick-fil-A! She told us that although it’s a lot of...
HELP! We're Under Attack By Zombies
It seemed unreal. Who could have thought that it would actually happen? People who died, were supposed to stay dead. Right? Luckily for us senior model rep, Brooke Harden, jokingly brought a shovel along with her for her senior portrait session after the morning news warned that there was an outbreak of a virus that causes insanity. We noticed a few things were off as we caravanned to Arbor Hills Nature Preserve. For one, the traffic was suspiciously...
Senior Survives Near Disaster
We aren’t sure if you know this: cheerleading is not a joke. Especially when it comes to TRB Elite Model, Mandi Clausen. This Heritage High School senior is a top competitor in the cheer world, but you won’t be seeing her on the football field during half-time. Mandi has taken it to a whole..
Storm Threatens Senior During Portrait Session
Storm clouds loomed overhead, and a single drop of water rolled down our windshield. Our team sighed with relief – we had just finished our senior photography session with Logan Wright just as it had begun to rain!
For those of us who live in the DFW metroplex, it is easy to say that with all of our April showers, there had better be a lot of May flowers. Luckily for us, it wasn’t too cloudy for us to meet Logan and his mother, Dawn, out at Arbor Hills Nature Preserve for his...
Are You as Nimble as This Senior? We Don’t Think So
Gorgeous, a gymnast, a reader, and a braniac; Shannon Dyer is a senior after our hearts. When we photographed her older sister, Lauren, back in 2012, we knew that she was a hoot and couldn’t expect anything less from Shannon! With a spritely attitude and an outgoing spirit, Shannon dazzled us with her smile and big blue eyes as we strolled along the paths at Arbor Hills Nature Preserve in Plano, Texas.
While walking through the denser part of the woods, we found a side of the creek that runs through Arbor Hills that we have not seen before...
Three Things You Need to Look Like A Cross Country Star
The three things you need to look like a cross country star!
#1: Have a lot of patience!
Angry screams pierced the cool autumn air. Cheyenne tried her best to keep a smile on her face, but the wailing screams only kept getting louder. Right as the noise reached its peak, Tyler shouted ‘got it!’ and Cheyenne burst into a fit of giggles.
Our team was photographing Heritage High School senior, Cheyenne Allison for her DFW senior portraits at the beautiful Arbor Hills Nature Preserve...
Heritage High School Senior Attacked by Dog During Session
It was a nice, quiet afternoon. The sun was streaming through the trees, the creek was bubbling happily, and Tyler was getting ready to photograph Meghan, who was precariously perched on a rock.
Then, the dog attacked.
Ok, maybe it was more like a puppy. And it wasn’t really even an attack, but it did cause Meghan to fall into a fit of giggles and to try and avoid being splashed too badly...
A Glowing Model Rep Session with Reid, Madison, and Makenna
We got in touch with our natural side for this Model Rep Session with our Senior Model Reps: Reid Parr, Madison DeVor, and McKenna Kinnamon!
Taking advantage of our air conditioning, our models met us at the studio for some R&R with Erica Rodriguez, one of our impeccable hair and makeup artists! After Erica had perfected these gorgeous ladies, they hit the studio with Tyler for a few shots. Let me tell you – our models brought the sass at this model rep group session...
