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
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...
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...
Urban Chic Is The New Little Black Dress
The world of fashion is constantly changing with influences like Eli Saab and Kendra Scott running the town, but it’s never been hard for 2017 Senior Model Rep, Madison Gootman, to keep up.
While Urban Outfitters maybe her favorite place to shop at the moment, Madison is a very down to earth senior who just likes to look ...
Frisco Seniors Go Sky-High
With the heat beating down on our team during the day, we decided it was high time to have a fun ladies night session with models Taylor, Laura, and Ashley!
This was Ashley Gillen’s first debut as a model with our team, and with veterans like Taylor and Laura to help her, she was an amazing addition to our 2017 Senior Model Rep Team! Taylor was the first on the scene and we took full advantage of the blonde beauty while we waited for Laura and Ashley to arrive. Joking about not wanting school to start...
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...
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...
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...
Fly Away With Us Into The Past
This shoot, in a word, was awesome. We couldn’t believe it when we got word that McKinney International Airport was willing to let us use their runway for a photoshoot. But it didn’t end there. When our team contacted Eric – the airports coordinator, he had a surprise for us. Eric had spoken with an owner of a NC21104 Stinson Reliant SR-10 a.k.a.: a REALLY cool plane.
Tom, the plane’s owner, had found the old plane and completely restored it to it’s original glory. And let us..
From A Senior's Perspective: Savannah
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....
Jeep Makes Seniors Go Wild
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...
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 ...
Volleyball is Life - Or At Least it is to These Seniors
When you have as many volleyball players as we do on our Senior Model Rep Team – you have to have a volleyball themed session!
Rachel Rhoades, Chelsea Roemer, and Gabi Norsworthy joined us in the studio for a fun and quick session surrounding their favorite game. You should recognize all of these gorgeous young ladies as they have been in multiple shoots with us. Rachel’s been in the Summer Florals Session earlier this year, as well as the recent Winter session, and...
Madi Hits Her Mini Softball Session Out of This World
If you haven’t already recognized this sassy redhead from her other sessions this year, let us introduce Ms. Madi Meyers. Madi joined our senior model team last summer as an Elite Model, and started off her career with us dressed up with Morgan Stewart and Carly Garrett during our Hispter themed session.
We saw Madi again in the fall for her personal session at...
How You Should Have Dressed This Past Fall
Riding boots, scarves, and over sized sweaters ruled the town this past fall, and we had senior model reps Gabi Norsworthy and Jocelynn Livingston show us what’s what in the fashion world.
The two model reps are fantastic friends that actually met through their passion: volleyball. While our team had no idea the two knew each other, when we met up with our models at Watters Creek in Allen, it was obvious the girls were good ...
A New Years Resolution That'll Have You Throwing Your Guns Up
As we start off the New Year, we all have our resolutions. Whether yours is to lose weight, to make more money, or to spend more time with your family – it’s no surprise that with change comes hardships. For this Hobbs High School senior though, change is nothing but a good thing.
Leslie Shows drove all the way from Hobbs, New Mexico, to come to our studio in North Dallas for her basic senior session. While they were still stretching from the 6 hour drive, Leslie...
Rising Star Takes Senior Portraits in Frisco
It’s not often that we have clients whose neighborhoods are so beautiful that you want to photograph them in it! Raven Donner, a senior this year at Frisco High School, came to us for a Model for a Day session which means she gets unlimited locations along with more than six hours of session time with our team. She had one unusual request: that we take some photos of her in her neighborhood.
Now, Raven doesn’t live in just any neighborhood. Raven lives in Willow Pond – a sprawling neighborhood with pockets of gorgeous...
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...
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...
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...
Basketball Player Throws Photographer For A Hoop
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...
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...
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...
Senior Sparkles During Her Senior Portrait Session
Forever fearless, Elite Model Lauren Johnson balanced precariously on the ledge. The last time we saw this gorgeous young lady, she had climbed up a wall at Addison Circle, and now she was walking the line between an amazing photo and disaster.
Lauren comes to us from quaint Kingston, Oklahoma, where she is a cheerleader at Kingston High School. Not only is Lauren a cheerleader – she...
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 Nearly Falls Off Car During Senior Shoot
There are few people in this world that are as sweet as John Paul II high school senior, Kaitlyn Batson. With a face full of freckles, Kaitlyn told our team that she’s always trying to keep a smile on our face, and she easily put one on ours!
After a short warm-up in the studio, Kaitlyn led our team around Downtown McKinney in the cool fall air. With some neat textured walls and old brick, we found...
Dallas Girl Witnesses Horrible Incident
Our team stood ridged. It never had a chance of surviving, and there was nothing we could do to save it. In one fail swoop, it was taken alive, wrapped up, and eaten by a giant banana spider. Our team was frozen in space, riveted and slightly bugged out by the speed at which the grasshopper met its...
Senior Schools Us In How To Be Sassy But Kind
There are many things we like about Senior Model Rep Gabriele Norsworthy. She’s an all-state choir member, a beast on the volleyball court, and an honor roll student to boot. But what we love most about this elite model is her dry sense of humor.
After calling Tyler out on one of his famous dad jokes, Gabi had our team rolling on the ground in Downtown McKinney. She even joked that she likes her coffee as black as her soul, but our team knows that she’s sweeter than...
Snow White Appears In The Flesh
"People tell me that all of the time! I think it’s the dark hair.” Senior Model Rep, Samantha Bradley, just laughed when our team told her she reminded them of the Disney princess, Snow White. And although she’s probably heard it over and over again until her ears were bleeding, this stunning beauty was nothing but kind about it – even telling our team that she was thinking about being Snow White for Halloween.
A senior this year at Heritage High School, Samantha was the last senior to join...
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...
Talented Senior Stops Traffic
Most high school kids these days are busier than a hive of bees. If they’re not on the field, then they’re in a study hall. If they’re not in study hall then they’re at work or running to a club meeting or a student council. It’s very obvious that today’s generation is doing their best to excel and to stand out among the crowd. But why? One word: scholarships.
And the talented Senior Model Rep Jocelynn Livingston has proven herself worthy of one. Not surprisingly, it can be very difficult...
Splish Splash! This Senior Had A Blast
When Senior Model Rep, Maddie Snowden, approached us asking if we could do a short swim shoot, our team was more than excited. Our studio is equipped with a large variety of backgrounds and props, but one of our favorite features...
Senior or Mermaid? You Decide
For someone who spends close to 50% of her time in the pool, Heritage High School Senior, Maddie Snowden, was more than willing to jump in the water for our team. We were not at all surprised that Maddie was friends with alumni senior model rep, Hannah Mabile, who had a swim session with us back in 2014. These two girls...
When Props Attack
All smiles, Carly brought her armful of clothes into our studio, ready to begin her senior shoot. You most definitely recognize this gorgeous Senior Model Rep from her previous shoots with us (Rock n’ Roll, Hipster, and her best friend shoot with Kyra) and we couldn’t be happier to have her back in our studio!
The second eldest of five, Carly is extremely impressive as a leader and scored an officer position on her dance team at Heritage High School. As we walked around Downtown McKinney, Carly told us that she’s been looking forward to her senior year and the fun events like Homecoming and Prom!
Unfortunately, just because there was a gorgeous blue sky and a beautiful model doesn’t mean that we were without our moment of terror. Carly’s mom, Tina, had brought a really neat vintage chair and told our team she wanted a few photos of Carly in it in the middle of a field. We got the chair set up, and after some great sitting poses, Tyler asked Carly to sit on the back of it. Little did we know that the chair was already top-heavy. As soon as...
Worlds Collide When These Two Seniors Meet
Lauren Johnson and Savannah Rutherford didn’t really know each other at the beginning of their shoot – but it soon became apparent that the world is a small place when they realized that they actually did know each other!
Lauren’s best friend is actually Savannah’s cousin! What’s even more interesting is that Lauren lives in Oklahoma, and Savannah is a Frisco local. Our team laughed in astonishment when the girls finally made the connection to one another and as we walked around Addison Circle we could...
Football Player Breaks Stereotypes and Amazes Photographer
Everyone knows the stories, the movies, even the comics. The jocks, usually football players, bully the underdog and are seen as gruesome representations of oversized teenagers. Not this time!
Senior Model Rep, Jake Ray, has to be the nicest guy on the planet. Tall and broad shouldered, Jake certainly fits into the football world, but after the sessions we’ve had the pleasure to photograph him in, we can definitely say that Jake breaks all pretenses of the stereotypical football player. Not only is Jake kind, but he is extremely talented and told our team that he’s positive that...
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..
Dancer Drowns in Talent
Not many people want to take on the challenge of looking flawless on a hot summer day in Texas, but Senior Model Rep Lizzie Buccambuso took it in stride and came out on top of the game!
Take our word for it when we say this senior is spunky! With a gorgeous face and a sassy attitude, our team loved photographing Lizzie in our studio. Our assistants joked that they couldn’t even manage a cartwheel while...
You Can't Bend it Like This Senior
Brooke Harden is the perfect mixture of talent and beauty. With an amazing skill on the soccer field, Brooke has been a force to be reckoned with from a young age and when she reached high school she gained a spot on a prestigious team that plays overseas against European teams each summer. But instead of just sticking to soccer to fill her time, Brooke is also an avid fashionista.
At our Urban Denim shoot earlier in the summer, Brooke impressed our team with her fashion knowledge as well as makeup skills. We could tell from her posing and accessories that her personal shoot was going to be a blast! And it was.
How To Be The Perfect Hipster
Her hair was on fire! Ok, not really, but Elite Model Rep, Madi does have some flawless red hair that lights up like a flame in the afternoon sunlight. It’s Shakespeare worthy, and that’s an understatement. Why are we talking about her glorious hair? Because she and two of our Top Model Reps joined us for another group session, and this one was themed Hipster.
Now, for the people...
The Secret Life of a Glamazon
With a mom for a judge, it’s no wonder that Senior Model Rep, Rachel Rhoades, is a force to be reckoned with. Much like the Amazonians, strong women must run in the Rhoades family, because when Rachel waltzed into our studio, she brought her aunt Lee with her ...
Outlaws Take Downtown Prosper
Tyler looked stunned and then busted out laughing as Madeline, a senior at Liberty High School, tried to explain that a corn gap is where she and fellow Senior Model Reps Mandi and Lizzie were currently standing. “You know, like a gap in the corn field that doesn’t have any spiders. Like, #corngap is the best.” That did it...
Giant Spider Threatens Seniors
Flower crowns, bright smiles, and groovy sunglasses reigned at our Boho shoot with four lovely Top models: Savannah, Brooke, Chelsea, and Jocelynn.
Our studio was set up and ready to go when Chelsea and Brooke popped into our studio to start us off! You may recognized Chelsea from our Summer Florals shoot with Brianna and Rachel, and we were excited to have her back in our studio for round two. The two other fabulous models; Savannah and Jocelyn, trickled...
Best Friends Really Are Forever
Best friends are a vital part of life, and when we met Kyra, it was no wonder that she was meant to be Carly’s best friend.
Carly had won a free best friend shoot from one of our model challenges, a perk of being a Senior Model Rep. She told us ahead of time that because she had so much fun on her Rock n’ Roll shoot with Myrna Phillips in our studio that she wanted to have her shoot with Kyra there!
After having some fun...
Hooligans Spray Paint Downtown McKinney
It is just a fact of life that it gets hot in Dallas, Texas – and to be honest, we’re surprised that we haven’t been categorized as a desert yet. Our team braved the ungodly heat on a Saturday in May to capture a fun and crazy session with 2016 Top Models Jake, Katherine, Maddie, and Brook!
We were a little nervous when...
Seniors Turn into Flowers at Portrait Session
Hot! Hot! Hot! The Texas sun was beating down on our team as we made our way around the Shops at Legacy with 2016 Senior Model Reps: Brianna, Rachel, and Chelsea. Lucky for us, our models are graceful glisteners and were not perturbed by the heat at all!
We originally met Brianna, Chelsea, and Rachel in our studio...
Ding Ding Ding! Round Two of Cap and Gown Shoot Commences
Sun! Glorious, wonderful, beautiful, sun!” – DFW residents everywhere could be heard from states away about the excitement of a blue sky with barely a cloud in sight after the onslaught of rain that saturated the Dallas area. And with the sun came our second round of cap and gown shoots for our wonderful clients! Our team had bustled into the studio early that Saturday morning with a handful...
Musicians Crash Studio Shoot
With the graduation of our 2015 Senior Model Reps, comes a whole new group of models! This year we are excited to introduce not one but two groups - our TRB Top Models and our TRB Elite Models. Our first group session of the year included three of our lovely new TRB Top Models - Madeline, Carly, and Morgan, who joined us in the studio on a rainy Saturday for a rockin’ shoot with our favorite jewelry designer, Myrna Phillips!
Inspired by the classics, we had...
Ding Ding Ding! Round One of Our Cap and Gown Shoots
It’s a good thing the rain can’t make it into our studio because we had our first round of our annual cap and gown shoots! We had a parade of gorgeous girls from all over the DFW metroplex, and we kicked our whirlwind shoot with senior model rep Brooke Sauls! Brooke, a senior from McKinney North is heading off to Wartburg University in Iowa for school in the fall!
We were soon joined by Jordan and Haley, seniors from Centennial and Heritage High School...
Senior Stops Rain for Senior Shoot
With a last name like Rachel Brown’s, how could she not have her DFW senior portraits with our studio! It had been a rainy week, and the day of Rachel’s shoot wasn’t going to be any different. Already having to reschedule once due to tornados, our team was determined to get this Brown into our studio rain or shine! Lady luck seemed to be on our side as we headed out
Sisters Turn Spies to Surprise Mom
Surprise! We met with Shannon and Lauren Dyer, two sisters and awesome senior model reps, at Little Elm Park for a secret sister session! In an attempt to surprise their parents for their anniversary, Shannon and Lauren contacted us to see if we would take these two beauties out for a sister photo session and how could we say no...
Does Glitter Belong on the Field? You Decide
Glitter and gems are not terms that usually describe a softball field, but when it comes to Heritage High School Senior, Haley Rodriguez, it makes the perfect mix of fierce, bold, and outright beautiful.
Haley is one of the most talented softball players in the DFW area, but this TRB Model Rep won’t let national barriers hold her down – she’s going international this year! She humbly told us as one of our hair...
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...
Senior Fights Texans for a Spot in Blue Bonnet Patch
Bluebonnets are a Texas staple, and they can be quite fickle at times. Fortunately for us, we found the perfect location to put our blond beauty in the middle of a field full of the gorgeous indigo flowers, although we did have a little competition from the other bluebonnet seekers!
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...
Unexpected Weather Changes Everything During Senior Shoot
Our team was in utter disbelief. It was January, right? Apparently, Dallas was tired of being held in the clutches of winter and broke out into a balmy 70 degree weather, just in time for Senior Model Rep, Lexi Maashio’s senior portrait session!
An amazing volleyball player, Lexi has the skills to help motivate people to push themselves, which is why she is working on her Personal Training certification! Her plan is to work her way through college as a trainer so that when...
The South Has Conniption As Snow Covers Dallas
Wt was udder madness. People were slipping, cars were sliding, and the snow was coming down like an avalanche.
As dramatic as Texans can get about cold weather and the snow, it can be said that the amount of snow that we received was not only unexpected but quite beautiful. 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! Two very brave senior model reps, Brooke and Madison, met us out at the Shops at Legacy for what would prove to be a very eventful (and cold) North Dallas senior photo session...
Store Owner Tries to Kick Senior Out of Session Location
In Dallas, Texas, cold is not usually a word that is thrown around very often. Heat, wind, sweat, are usually synonymous with DFW senior portraits, but cold? Unfortunately, Zach Ferrell had to brave the coldest and windiest day of winter (so far) – but we think it was not in vain!
Melissa Ferrell, Zach’s mom, called us in a panic on that Monday morning. Zach had gone through the rigorous and painful process of having his braces removed for his senior portraits only to have their photographer cancel on them last minute and his orthodontist was calling him back in to put on a new fresh set of metal the following day. Having found our photographs on Yahoo and through the Underwoods – Melissa attended high school with Ron – who you may recognize from their senior and family portraits with us...
High School Senior Travels from China for Her Senior Portrait Session
Ok so maybe she’s lived in the Dallas area for 3 years, but Cora Seelman really was born in China! This Senior Model Rep does it all; NHS, student council, captain of both the varsity cheerleading squad and the Desperados - a country-western dance team at Richardson High School that perform at pep rallies doing stunts and gravity defying routines, as well as a chair person on the prom committee. Just listing it all makes our head spin, but Cora just giggled and said that she...
Friends and Boyfriend Crash Senior Portrait Session
Standing in the middle of the street usually isn’t advisable, but Mikaela Tisdale, a senior at Wakeland High School showed no fear striking a pose at the Shops of Legacy during her DFW senior portrait session. This bravery may have been honed through her time as a third baseman for her high school’s softball team, and let us tell you, being on a high school varsity sport is not an easy thing to accomplish!
Admiring the lights that were put up for the holiday season, we strolled around the Shops at Legacy with Mikaela and her boyfriend, Addison. When the subject of college came up...
Tornado Nearly Sweeps Away Senior During Her Portrait Session
Wind whisked along the grassy hills of Luscombe Farms as our team tried it’s best to stay warm. Senior Jordan Whittle led the way across the farm to a small shack in the back of the property, smiling all of the way and making a joke or two. Although it was freezing and so windy there could have been a tornado, this Senior Model Rep was not letting it get her down and she was clearly enjoying her DFW senior portrait session with us...
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...
How to Graduate High School Early and Keep God as a Key Player in Your Life
Soft light streamed through the stained glass windows as our footsteps echoed through the high ceilings of the sanctuary. Madison DeVor smiled at our team as we gaped at the gorgeous patterns and textured walls of the Old Church Restored, a church in Whitesboro, Texas.
Madison and her mother are good friends with the family who bought and restored the old church, so they very graciously allowed us to photograph Madison there for her DFW senior portraits!This senior is not only beautiful, but she is extremely smart! She is the only senior in our Senior Model Rep Program to be graduating early, and she told us that her plan is to begin a community college to gain more credits as soon as she graduates in the spring...
How To Rock a Leather Skirt This Winter Season
Our team stood in a shocked silence. It was happening again, and there was nothing they could do about it. Macy was on the verge of tears while Tyler let out a nervous chuckle. All they could think about was the catastrophe that happened during Makenna Kinnamon’s first DFW senior shoot when they headed to Denton, Texas only to find a rock festival taking place, and it seemed that it was happening all over again to another senior model rep, Taylor Hernandez...
When Geese Attack – A Seriously Fowl Situation
A gallant yell emerged from our studio as Liberty High School senior, Ethan Luman, roared into the camera followed by laughter as our team roared along with him. We had Ethan’s session at White Rock Lake, where we met Ethan and his mother Cara for his Dallas senior portrait session. Ethan is the eldest of four with a younger sister and twin younger brothers who he says always put smiles on his face.
It was an unseasonably warm day, and we were taking full advantage of it along with other Dallas natives who were jogging along the gorgeous paths lined with fall colored trees. One gentleman was sporting some bright orange running shorts, and Ethan, being outgoing, waved him down to let him know “how awesome” he thought the man’s shorts were...
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...
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.

Audrey Hepburn Doppelganger Discovered During Senior Portrait Session
Mist was floating through the air and landing on the colorful leaves and flowers of the Dallas Arboretum as we photographed the gorgeous Claire Rosenbluth.

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.

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...
