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...
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...
Senior Shows Her Nerdy Side to Photographer
To say that our team is made up of a bunch of Star Wars fanatics, fantasy novel readers, and foodies is an understatement. So when Jadzia approached us and asked if we could not only include her light saber in her senior pictures, but go to her favorite pizza place and let her cosplay as a Audrey Hepburn – we absolutely said yes!
Jadzia met us after school one day to get her hair and makeup done by one of our amazing hair and makeup artists – a perk of being a senior model rep for 2017! We joked about her sister, Chabeli, who was also...
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...
Our Favorite Kind of Lights Are Friday Night Lights
To say that high school football in Texas is a big deal, is a BIG understatement! With fun TV shows like Friday Night Lights – a show actually based in a small Texas town – and the excitement that invades the entire school on game days, it’s no wonder that this all American game can spark such a passion for competition.
And let us tell you – there is A LOT of competition. As our team gathered on the beautiful turf field of the University of North Texas'; newest football shrine, Apogee Stadium, our senior model rep team was already debating the scores, plays, and teams of last year’s Frisco high school football season. As most know, Lone Star High School made it all the way to the state championships last season and had a...
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...
A Classic Kind of Summer
The 1950’s was full of swing dancing, drive-in movies, and fun outings with friends to local hotspots like the cinema and the ice cream parlor! Inspired by this wonderful time, we gathered up senior model reps Kailyn Gauff, Melissa Castillo, and Alana Wilkinson for a 1950s themed session at our favorite ice cream parlor, Beth Marie's, in Denton, Texas.
Beth Marie's has been a Denton staple...
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...
Shop Till You Drop
Tt’s the beginning of summer and with a new season comes the need to refurbish our wardrobes! Senior model reps Maddie, Anneliese, and Shelley joined our team out at the shops at Watters Creek to do a little bit of retail therapy.
School is closed for the holiday, and our brand new seniors were excitedly talking about their year to come. Maddie, a senior at Lone Star High School has already been on a few shoots with us, including both her best friend session with Haley, as...
Under Their Umbrella-Ella-Ella
Someone in the DFW area did a mega rain dance this past month because it has been nearly consistently rainy and humid for the last few weeks. And after having to reschedule Maddie Cox’s best friend session with Haley nearly four times, we finally just said enough was enough.
The best friends met us at Frisco Square with their cutest pair of rain boots and a couple of umbrellas. Luckily for us, the rain had subsided long enough for us to capture Maddie and Haley’s awesome friendship. Between jumping in puddles, playing in the fountains, and talking about summer plans our team was able to experience the true bond...
An Utterly Divine Senior Shoot
There are a few things Texas is known for. We are known for crazy weather, everything being bigger and better, and most certainly our barbecue. But what about the people who make that delicious BBQ possible?
Meet Senior Model Rep Brooke Williams. Brooke, who is a senior this fall at Lone Star High School, runs her very own cattle business which she started at the young age of 12 when her grandparents bought her her first cow. Brooke, being...
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...
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 ...
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,...
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...
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...
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: 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....
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 ...
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...
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...
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...
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...
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...
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...
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...
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...
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...
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...
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...
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...
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...
Downtown Dallas 2015 Model Rep Session with Jaedyn, Meghan and Lauren!
Holy pretty ladies, Batman! Our models were on fire during this senior model rep shoot in Deep Ellum.
The wonderful Whitney Stiles worked her magic on our already stunning 2015 Model Reps and we headed into the studio for some individual and group shooting sessions. Becoming fast friends, Jaedyn, Meghan, and Lauren giggled their way through many different poses and kept a fierce attitude as they dazzled us with their ‘smizes’ – Tyra would have been so proud...
Awesome Swim Session with 2014 Senior Model Rep, Hannah Mabile!
Hannah is a swimmer for Lone Star High School and Frisco Aquatics. She is also a 2014 senior model rep for Tyler R. Brown Photography! We had a wonderful session with Hannah earlier this year and since she is a swimmer we thought it might be fun to catch Hannah in her natural element, the pool, so we met up with Hannah at the Craig Ranch pool in Frisco after school one afternoon. We got started right away with some tough-girl poses next to the pool before letting Hannah jump in. If you know Hannah, you know what a treat it is to get to watch her swim...
Lone Star High School Football Player Brad's Studio Model Rep Session
This post is all about our 2014 senior model rep, Brad! Brad is a football player, power lifter, and runner from Lone Star High School and he has the muscles to show it! Along with his athleticism, he is smart and has a plan for his future. He intends on studying engineering at UT or Texas State next Fall. We don’t know how these seniors juggle so much responsibility their senior year but we love watching them succeed...
Lone Star High School Senior Chabeli's Model Rep Session
Chabeli is a 2014 Lone Star High School senior who moved to Frisco from Puerto Rico her freshman year. She is an athletic trainer for the football team, and one of the very best senior model representatives we have ever had the pleasure of working with...
Lone Star High School Swimmer Hannah's Model Rep Session
We were so excited when Hannah became one of our 2014 Senior Model Reps! We love working with seniors who are involved in different sports and activities so we can really focus on creating senior portraits that are unique to that specific senior. With Hannah being our first swimmer, we had tons of ideas. So many ideas, in fact, that we were only able to do half of Hannah's session!
For this half of her session we decided to start in our studio with white and pink backdrops, then headed over to Frisco Square for some great backgrounds, before finishing up in the studio pool...
Lone Star High School Drill Team Officer Shelby's Model Rep Session
We first met Shelby when we were asked by another Lone Star senior named Shelby to photograph their Cheer/Dance Banquet. Shelby was sporting a knee brace at the banquet, but she was all healed up when she came to the studio for her Senior Model Rep Session. After her hair and makeup was artfully applied by the amazing Whitney Stiles...
Aubrey High School Falls to Lone Star High School at FC Dallas Stadium
The Aubrey Chaparrals played against the Lone Star Rangers on Thursday night at the FC Dallas Stadium in Frisco. The Chaparrals (2-5) stayed in the lead over the Rangers (6-1) for three quarters, going into halftime with a 20-19 lead. The Chaps took an early fourth quarter lead of 28-25 over the Rangers when Anthony Alford ran a 3-yard touchdown. The Rangers, however, were unstoppable and answered right back with a 45-yard touchdown run by Toure Stevens with 9:42 left on the clock. Aubrey just couldn’t get down the field before Lone Star took down quarterback Anthony Alford for a 1-yard gain on fourth-and-8 with 6:01 left. Lone Star finished out their game against Aubrey with a 9-yard touchdown run by CJ Encalade with little over a minute left making the final score 39-28...
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...
Unique, Impressive and Daring Shelby’s Senior Photos are Amazing
It was a little over a year ago that we first met Shelby. At the time, her mom, Jennifer (a realtor) was helping us search for a new home. One of our biggest requirements was that our new home have enough space for our photography studio. Jennifer did an amazing job helping us find our dream home and now Shelby is helping us out by being one of our 2013 senior models.
Shelby will be graduating from Lone Star High School in Frisco where she is a cheerleader. We captured some stunning photographs of her just up the road from our studio and then headed...
