Such a fun session! 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

Gillian is beautiful! 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.

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! Classy and Classic Dallas Senior Photos

Brooke Williams is many things, but our team for sure know that both her class and her kindness stickout the most!

Brooke is a 2017 top model in our senior model rep program, and with a week left before the beginning of her senior year, we had her North Dallas senior photo session in the blazing heat of Texas in July. Although it was a toasty one, we met Brooke and her mom, Emily, out at Minter’s in Plano, Texas. Minter’s is a high-end Thunderbird repair and restoration shop that has been in business for over fiv...

So much color! Seniors Across DFW Come Together

You would have thought we started the largest dust storm on the planet with the way the powder floated across the fields and down the street towards the lake. It was a colorful cloud though and it was followed by laughter and excitement as our 2017 Senior Model Reps and their friends assaulted each other with Holi Powder – the powder...

It's all about the sunshine Grab Your Flippy-Floppies

Summer is more than sunscreen and flip flops, it’s all about the water. And, more importantly, getting to hang out with your friends without the stress and worry of getting to class on time. Our team can definitely say that summer is our favorite season, and what could be a better way to express that than with a day at the lake with 2017 senior model reps Alexis, Jadzia, and Madison!

Hailing from Lone Star High School, these three top models had all of the summer essentials. From sun hats to swim suit cover ups, these awesome seniors were ready for some action when we met up at Little Elm Park where there’s a great spot to jump...

Laura and Laura! Strong IS Beautiful

TV shows like American Gladiators, American Ninja Warrior, and Spartan: Ultimate Team Challenge have increased in popularity over the past few years. Twitter and Instagram are littered with tips, tricks, and ideas for clean eating and a healthy lifestyle over all. Yoga pants sales are booming, and our team will wear workout gear on a North Dallas Senior photo shoot because of their breezy (and sweat resistant) materials.

Without saying much more, it’s very obvious that fitness is at the forefront of many minds these days, so we thought...

What an awesome year! 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...

Gorgeous and athletic!! 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...

Chewy is our favorite! 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...

Our models are stunning! 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...

Tristan poses in front of a rainbow!! 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...

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...

Catherine doses during her session! 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...

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...

The Burrells look great! 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...

Hannah doses during her session! Ms Hannah Begins Our Journey

Everyone has a starting point and ours was with Ms. Hannah. Born to a dear friend of Tyler and Stacia’s you could argue that Hannah was part of the reason we started to photograph little bundles of joy. Not wanting to take the traditional route of photographing newborns in their birthday suit, Hannah’s mom brought adorable pink knit diaper cover and a matching headband. While her brother and sister played with a few of the toys we keep at the studio, we photographed Hannah all snuggled up in her grandmother’s blanket. Although Hannah was not interested in falling asleep for...

L.J.’s mom was another friend of the team, so when we learned that she only had hospital photos of little L.J. there was no hesitation to have them into the studio for a short session. However...

Markee looks gorgeous in this photo. Senior Torn Between Canada and the US

Ok, we’re exaggerating. Heritage High School Senior Markee Williamson has lived in the US for over seven years, so she’s obviously happy living here. Although, she did tell us while we explored Downtown Prosper that she missed poutine, a Canadian delicacy that includes french fries and a large amount of gravy. Our team thinks that we would miss that too.

Markee first reached out to us over the summer, and told us how excited she was to be a senior and how pumped she was to have her senior photos with us! So it was no surprise that we were equally as excited when we were able to have her session soon after school started. With the year slowly moving toward the holidays, and the days begin to shorten, our team was a little nervous we would run out of light before heading out to Downtown Prosper. Luckily for us, we were right on schedule and Markee got some amazing photos of the sunset with her cute red Mini Cooper.

After waving the Canadian flag...

Kelsey Auldridge, a senior at Berkner High School, and her mother Mary met our team out at Towne Lake Park to begin her seniority session with us. Towne Lake Park has a beautiful and rusty bridge that Kelsey and her mom had fallen in love with, so after taking a few stunning photographs on the bridge, Kelsey bravely...

These Seniors had a blast! Seniors Caught Throwing Party in Photographer's Studio

Should Old Acquaintance be forgot, and never thought upon;

The opening lines of Auld Lang Syne seem a little morbid, but when you think about it, it’s actually quite beautiful. It means letting go of your past and celebrating the new times ahead. You can let go of your worries, and have a chance at making the change for the better. Did you know that January 1st was chosen for the first day of the New Year because it is light precisely the same amount of time it is dark. Our seniors chose to celebrate this occasion with us in our studio in Frisco, Texas with pizza from Pizza Hut, cupcakes, and a lot of sparkle...

Makenna strikes a power pose on a set of stairs behind a building in Downtown Denton. Colorado Native Crashes Denton Square Rock Festival

When you first roll into the Denton Square, you expect to see a beautifully quaint, small town feel, courthouse – possibly with a few college students scattered around on blankets having picnics or studying. You expect to see the soft lights of Christmas strung up in and around the trees, framed by the infamous Opera house (now a recycled book store), and the atmospheric sounds of maybe a jazz or bluegrass band playing on the corner.

What you do not expect, is a booming, devilish, and wild heavy metal concert – which is unfortunately what Makenna Kinnamon got during the first round of her DFW senior portraits...

Being a model can be difficult, but nature has a way of making it even more difficult to look as good as Shannon Milburn does in front of the camera!

It was a very windy day when Shannon met us at Mt. Zion Cemetery to begin her DFW senior portrait shoot with us, but this boho beauty was not deterred, especially since the sun was out and shining brightly. Shannon is a senior at Lucas Christian Academy, where she met one of her close friends and fellow Senior Model Rep, Lexi Maashio who you may recognize from a Senior Model Rep session at Luscombe Farms....

Logan chills out on one of our lounge chairs, in her soccer uniform, on our white seamless background. NOOO GOAAAAAAAAALLL!! Logan Really Scores During Her Senior Portrait Session

The crowd went silent as Logan took her stance in the middle of the net. She faced her opponent, determined not to let the ball cross over the line that would allow the other team the extra point to win the game. Her hair blew back from her face and she narrowed her eyes, putting her game face on – it was time. She crouched down, and launched herself at the incoming soccer ball.

And then Logan landed on the pillows in our studio.

As a goalie for Fury, a DFW soccer club, Logan’s life revolves around those pesky soccer balls, and we had her bring her gear to the studio for some athletic shots to go along with her senior portrait session with us...

We ended up having a good time and we were able to get Sam to loosen up and enjoy the process. His portraits turned out great and you can really see his personality in a few of them...

Natori stands in front of a fence with the sun shining through from behind. Heritage High School Senior, Natori's, Studio Session

When Bryn and her mom told us about the very sad circumstances that lead to Natori possibly having to skip having her senior portraits made, we knew we had to do something. We were so happy to help her family out after everything they’ve been through. So much tragedy for these young ladies, makes our hearts just hurt...

Alex poses with a pretty golden retriever for this cute senior portrait. A Spring Break Session with Alex Schenck!

Alex was home from school in Minnesota over spring break and her mom thought it would be a good time to have her senior portraits taken. I must say, Alex was one of the easiest seniors we have ever had the pleasure of photographing. She would literally giggle on command. It was almost as if her natural state of being was giggling and she had to try to stop for the rest of the pictures...

Jonathan stands in his boxing pose on the black background in our studio. Jonathan’s GQ Senior Portrait Session in Downtown McKinney

Jonathan is graduating from Wylie High School, Class of 2013. We started his session in our studio with just him and his guitar. Jonathan is a musician at Fellowship Church Plano, and happens to be good friends with one of our previous clients, drummer Josh Rainey. One has to wonder if these two cats have ever sat down together and jammed?

A great action shot of a Heritage high school player getting pushed out of bounds. Heritage High School Senior Pictures with Cheerleader Bryn

Bryn is quite the character and a lot of fun to photograph.  Both her studio session and her outdoor session at Adriatica Village turned out great, but I think we had the most fun out by the pool.  Bryn really wanted a few photographs in the water, so we gave it a go.  It was a lot of fun trying to keep her from floating up, thankfully I have some SCUBA gear...

Heritage high school player number 88 stands alone Wakeland Homecoming vs Heritage High School Football at FC Dallas Stadium

Here is bit of the action from the 2012 Wakeland Homecoming game against Heritage High School at FC Dallas Stadium. You can see all of the images here.

We had a great time at the game. I'm not going to say it was a close one, but it was still very entertaining. I really enjoyed the part when the cheerleaders from Wakeland came over to show their appreciation to Heritage. It was a lot of fun, and so many of these kids know each other from before...

Lone Star high school player advances the football Lone Star High School Football Homecoming vs Sanger at FC Dallas Stadium

It's normally Friday night lights, but not this time. This was a Thursday night homecoming game for Lone Star High School.  Cheerleader Shelby  (one of our senior model reps) invited us to come out and photograph the game and of course we were excited to do it.  Check out the image of her with her mum.  Congratulations to the homecoming king and queen and to the team for getting the win.

The game was at FC Dallas Stadium and there were some great moments.  It is really fun to watch the game through a super telephoto lens.  Not only do you get a unique...

Skyler Rountree Stunning Gorgeous Adriatica Village Dress Heritage High School Lovely Model Rep Senior Stone Wall Heritage High School Senior Portraits with Skyler at Adriatica in McKinney

Making Skyler's senior portraits was an absolute blast. We had a fantastic start to her in studio shoot, where we were able to capture some incredible images of this lovely Heritage High School senior cheerleader. Skyler was fearless, and the closet full of clothes that her and her mom brought seemed endless. As Stacia was working through the initial image selection, I actually heard her comment under her breath, "does this girl take a bad picture"? That really cracked me up, but man, it is so true. Skyler is...

Heritage High School Greenville Pizza Hut Stadium Football Game Heritage vs Greenville High School Football Pictures at FC Dallas Stadium (Pizza Hut Park)

In addition to photographing high school senior portraits at our Frisco studio and on-location Skyler and her Mom thought it might be fun for us to come out to a game and capture some of the Friday night light action. Man they were right, was it ever fun! We had a blast, even in the rain. We went out and bought a brand new 300mm beauty from Canon and I have to admit, I'm having a blast cutting my high school sports photography teeth with this lens. It really is an amazing piece of equipment.  It coupled with our new EOS-1D X is going make for some seriously great sports photos, once it...

Sarah is a beautiful young lady – with an absolutely stunning smile and gorgeous eyes, she made our job so easy! Sarah is a senior at J.J. Pearce High School. We spent a little time at The Shops at Legacy and then finished up in the studio with the white seamless. I love how these make you want to go out and buy the clothes she’s wearing! She could have a real future in modeling if professional soccer doesn’t work out for her. ;)

Kaity Senior Pulchritudinous Splendid Scenic Rock School of Rock Senior Kaity | Frisco

We had a fantastic time capturing School of Rock Kaity the other day! We met her at The Shops at Legacy. Her session was a blast, and the images are stunning! She’s a very dynamic girl, as you will see in the images. Some are soft and beautiful, and the rest, well they just ROCK! :)

The top one here is my favorite. I just love the light, and the colors. A close second has to be the nearly completely black full arm guitar strum. So cool. We had a tremendous time taking these. Coming up with cool poses, and trying some off the wall stuff. This was no ordinary senior photo session.

Thanks for meeting up with us Kaity, we had a fantastic time, and we are so glad that you love...

Glenda And Bob A Wonderful Frisco Wedding Bob and Glenda | A Frisco Texas Wedding

Back in June we brought you the wonderful story of the couple who were just engaged at The Shops at Legacy while we sat there waiting for a client who had stood us up (booo). They we so happy with the beautiful images we captured that evening that they asked us to be their wedding photographers. We were thrilled they wanted us to be there on their special day, and it was indeed a wonderful event. It came off just how they had planned it, small, simple and soon, minus the small part. :)

Bob and Glenda were married right here in Frisco, Texas, at the Stonebriar Community Church. A very convenient location...
