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...
Roses Are Red and Violet is Alana's Hair Color
Alana is a diamond in the rough and an amazing Top Model! Instead of one regular session, she wanted three mini sessions spread out through the year. We LOVED this idea, especially because Alana’s hair is ever changing.
Our first session was in Deep Ellum, which is perfect fit for Alana’s bright personality! We took full advantage of all the amazing murals in the area and had a few run ins with the locals for a full experience!
Our second session was at Arbor Hills in Plano...
This Senior is Prepared. For. Life
One of the goals for the Boy Scouts of America is to make sure their scouts are “Prepared.For.Life”. This means that they learn a ton of different skills and earn patches as they master these different skills and techniques that help them in their lives. Whether it’s camping or sewing – once they master enough skills, these awesome scouts earn the title of Eagle Scout – the highest honor in the society. And our new favorite Eagle Scout is Frisco High School senior, Ben Whytlaw!
We had Ben’s seniority session on a warm day last fall, and
From One End of DFW to the Other
To kick off our amazing 2018 senior model rep team, we had three of our awesome models (Landri, McKenzie, and Riley) meet us out at Las Colinas to have a photo shoot around the magnificent Mustangs of Las Colinas!
It was a rainy day, but the rain had let off as soon as we pulled up to William’s Square and everyone was in a great mood. We grabbed McKenzie as the other two models were polishing off their looks, when we were approached by a very angry security guard. After being investigated, the security guard told us that we would need to get permission from management. No problem there – we
Pretty Flowers and Smelly Creeks
A popular spot in Dallas, Texas for senior photos is the gorgeous Dallas Arboretum where you can see all of the stunning flowers and water features that they have to offer! The only downside is that the arboretum closes at 5pm – which most people know that from the months of March – November means that we will be shooting at the hottest time of the day. That didn’t deter Alvarado High School senior, Taylor Raby, though – and we are so glad it didn’t!
Taylor, her mom, her nephew, and her boyfriend all met us at the studio on a bright Saturday morning for hair and makeup. We chatted about the beautiful day, as well as the heat which for a Saturday in November was in the 90’s (Texas, right?). We
Senior on the Prairie
Ally Smith isn’t a whole like the characters from Little House on the Prairie, but being a Texas senior definitely means that we are plenty of prairies, fields, and just generally open land in abundance. And this particular prairie was right behind her house!
We met Ally and her family at their home out on some cattle land in Celina, Texas. We took a few photos around the pool and when our team saw the stunning acres their home is backed up to, we asked if we could hop the fence to grab a few photos! The Smiths are good friends with the neighbors who own the land, and after a quick phone call we h
A Disney Princess in Leathers and Kendra Scott
For Frisco seniors in 2017 staying up with fashion can be a chore. Altr’d State, Urban Outfitters, and Forever 21 change on a daily basis, but one thing that has stayed constant is the constant love that our seniors (and our team) have for the sparkly jewelry from Kendra Scott!
John Paull II High School senior, Addie Burlage, is no different when it comes to Kendra, but she definitely wowed our team with her awesome fashion sense – even when she walked out in a ball gown worthy of a Disney Princess.
Even though these Texas seniors love to stay up with the times whether it’s with the new Snapchat filters or the latest Youtube challenge, they honor our traditions with vigor and pride. Cotillion is a
Lost? This Senior Will Find You Wherever You Are
It is not every day that you meet a senior like Josie Drury from Alvarado High School! We were so pumped for this session because Josie brought Moose, her beautiful blood hound, to her senior shoot! These awesome duo works for a non-profit volunteer organization called Search One Rescue Team, or SORT for short. These amazing people donate their time and effort to...
From Beach Beauty to Softball Superstar
Women in today's world would hardly be recognized by the oppressed and highly-structured women of the 19th century and earlier. Even sixty years ago, women were not so free as they are today to pursue their dreams of being athletes, scientists, and other ‘manly’ jobs. Today, though, is a day where stunning seniors like Taylor Curbow can be both a beauty and a hardcore athlete.
Taylor came to us as a senior model rep back in 2016 from The Colony High School. Wanting to participate in our program, she was a little worried due to her school work and her softball schedule, but we were able to convince her to join our awesome team of models – and boy, are we happy that we did! Like most of our seniors, Taylor is a busy person both socially
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 Dies During Photo Shoot
Texas weather being Texas weather, the summer this year lasted much longer than it normally does. We had a few cold front pop through, but because there was not a full freeze, the evil mosquitos that plague Dallas never really died. So when we decided to explore an abandoned building in Downtown Celina for Wakeland High School senior Jake Ellsworth, it shouldn’t have surprised us that not even bug spray could keep us safe.
We met Jake on the
How to Slay Your Senior Session
For most of us born before the 21st century, keeping up with the newer terminology of our current 2017 seniors and the other ‘young people’ of our society can be rather challenging. But it wasn’t hard for our team to learn what the word ‘slay’ means to our current seniors when Prosper High School senior Sydni Moss walked into our studio last October!
To 'slay' does not
A Senior Who's Smile is Brighter Than the Sun
Meeting Creekview High School senior Laura Doocy is what convinced our team that we needed her to be a part of our 2017 senior model rep team. Smart, stunning, and talented, Laura is also super sweet and funny to boot!
We met Laura at The Style House after one our hair and makeup team members was finished polishing off her look for her 2017 senior photos. Bright blue eyes and Laura's brilliant smile told our team that we were going to head out to Arbor Hills Nature Preserve to start
Nothing Can Hold This Senior Down - Especially Rain
In our business, it's not unusual to be halfway to the location of a North Texas senior session and for the skies to suddenly darken and open up without any warning. This is what happened to Maddie Stowers when we were just finishing up her hair and makeup in our studio in Frisco, Texas.
It was sprinkling in Frisco, so our team decided that we would just head out to Downtown McKinney and try to see what we could get! We're so glad that we did, we
Smart, Sassy, and Stunning Senior Pictures
You know it’s going to be a good shoot when your model walks in with her fashionable outfits pre-planned, jewelry hanging neatly from the hangers, and shoes that match each ensemble to perfection.
This isn’t senior model rep, Melissa Castillo’s, first shoot with us though. As part of our program, Melissa has been in at least three other sessions, including our slumber party session as well as our vintage ice cream parlor session earlier this year! We’ve also had a blast at her best friend session with her brother Damien
Senior Songbird will Steal Your Heart
Annie Kagerer is a lot like many of our other seniors. She’s gorgeous, smart, and very kind – something that most people say that seniors of her generation are not. But Annie is not only these things – she also has a talent that can’t be seen, but rather, can be heard.
Having been a senior model rep with our studio since last March, we had no idea how stunning Annie’s voice was until her mother, Patricia, showed us a recording and we were blown away! Annie’s talents don’t stop there though. She uses her powers of organization to help run Best Buddies, a program that pairs high school students with other students
Pumpkin Spice and Everything Nice - That's What Seniors Are Made Of
To be a 2017 senior, you need to know 2 things:
One: Fall is everything
And Two: You can’t have fall without friends and pumpkin spice.
Although the fall in North Dallas is just Summer 2.0 – we Texans still love the idea of wearing warm colors, flannel, and the smell of a good cup of coffee. There are plenty of people here who will don wool socks and jackets even as sweat drips down their faces. Senior Model Reps Haylee Hogan, Tyler Crew, Taylor Curbow, and Gabby Klosterman are these people (minus the sweat that is!) and we barely had to convince
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...
Sweet Senior Session Takes an Edgy Twist
Fhen you first meet senior model rep, Gabby Klosterman, don’t let her shy demeanor fool you! This wonderful senior from The Colony High School is both sweet and artsy and took us for a jot around DFW for her North Dallas senior photo session.
We met Gabby at the studio to get her primed and camera ready by one of our amazing hair and makeup artists. While getting her hair and makeup done, her dad, Duane, told us that Gabby was their miracle baby as Gabby’s mom,
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.
