The Best of Dallas: Bishop Arts
The Bishop Arts District is known for its close-knit small town neighborhood feel and is the home to many independent restaurants, coffee bars and boutiques. The artsy district is located in north Oak Cliff, Dallas, and just southwest of Downtown Dallas. We had senior model reps Angela, Hailey, Erin, and Isabel meet us for a fun evening of exploring and senior photos. Yes please!
We met around the intersection...
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 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,...
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...
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...
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...
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...
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...
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 ...
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...
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...
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...
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 ...
Ying and Yang in the Flesh
To say that seniors Alana and Lauren are opposites is a bit of an overstatement. Although the wacky friends are different, you can tell within the first few seconds of seeing them together that they fit each other’s personalities like a glove.
Kicking off the session with a sweet gift for her best friend, Alana showed us the adorable ying and yang necklace that she bought for her and Lauren. We conspired with...
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,...
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...
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...
Magic Found At A Bookstore In Denton
It was the craziest thing! Maddie opened one of the books in the Russian Literature section of the book store, and then after a flash of light – she just started to levitate! Obviously, we had to snap a photo of the occurrence!
Just kidding – we’ve been re-reading Harry Potter, so we couldn’t resist setting up a composite image of 2017 Senior Model Rep Maddie Stowers during our recent group session at Recycled Books in Denton, Texas. We had chosen the awesome bookstore for its vintage...
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...
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...
