Senior Amazes Photographer with Graceful Bow
NHS, Carousel Co-choir, student council, girl scouts, and being a youth deacon keep this TRB Senior Model Rep so busy that we just couldn’t pass up the opportunity to photograph her – even if it was a rainy day! Back in April, we had Richardson High School senior Kristin Birkhoff and her mo...
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
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...
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.
Our team was photographing Heritage High School senior, Cheyenne Allison for her DFW senior portraits at the beautiful Arbor Hills Nature Preserve...
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. Although it was a very gray day, Claire was stunning against the vibrant colors of the gardens, and really stood out among the trees in a soft white sweater.
A senior at Heritage High School, Claire was unfazed at the news of the dreary forecast for her DFW senior portraits. With a big smile and bright eyes, Claire led us through the maze of gardens and we were lucky to be able to keep up with the future business woman! Having an eye for style, Claire wowed us in a fur vest and a chic all black outfit with cheetah print heels. This offered a stark contrast against her natural surroundings and led to some truly unique and beautiful portraits....
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...
Heritage High School Senior Attacked by Dog During Session
It was a nice, quiet afternoon. The sun was streaming through the trees, the creek was bubbling happily, and Tyler was getting ready to photograph Meghan, who was precariously perched on a rock.
Then, the dog attacked.
Ok, maybe it was more like a puppy. And it wasn’t really even an attack, but it did cause Meghan to fall into a fit of giggles and to try and avoid being splashed too badly...
Best Friends go Head-to-Head During DFW Senior Photoshoot
Most people have someone that they call their best friend, but when you look at these photographs, it’s amazing that these two high school seniors are not physically attached at the hip!
Lauren and Emily have been best friends from birth – their mothers went to high school together and had been pretty good friends in their teenage years. When they found out that they were both pregnant at the same time, it’s no wonder Emily and Lauren seem to be bonded not only as friends but as soul sisters....
Spotted! Boho Beauty in Natural Habitat
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....
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...
Fashionista Makes Waves in Frisco During Senior Portrait Session
Long hair, high cheek bones, and piercing brown eyes are just a few of the things that make Tia Nayar a beautiful person!

The volleyball all-star was awarded the title of Captain her junior year at Liberty High School, and when we asked her what her college plans were during our shoot at the Shops of Legacy she told us: “I am looking to get a volleyball scholarship! I haven’t narrowed down the list yet.”...
This Heritage High School Highstepper Kicked It With Us At Our Studio And Downtown McKinney
You better recognize this Heritage Highstepper’s talent! We had Alex McKay kicking her way across our studio during her senior portrait session – and man can she high step!
Did you know High school high stepping was created back in 1929 in Greenville, Texas, by Ms. Gussie Nell Davis – the founder of the prestigious Rangerettes? We learned that the original purpose behind creating the dance and drill teams was to give girls who could not tumble like the cheerleaders a chance to participate in football games, but when Miss Davis was contacted by the President of Kilgore College, she was given the challenge to create a group that would “be interesting and keep the folks in their seats at half-time...

Check Out Our Fantastic Session with Heritage High School Senior, Kayla Underwood
Kayla, a senior at Heritage High School, and her mother, Kacie, met us in the famous Downtown McKinney to kick off her session. A really neat thing about Kayla was that she happens to know over 10 of our Senior Model Reps, and she is well loved by all of them! Kayla had her hair and makeup done by Jennifer Jeffery – a close family friend – and we absolutely loved how it accentuated her natural beauty (we are definitely taking notes from Jennifer next time)...

2015 Model Rep Ice Breaker Party
It was raining models at our first 2015 Model Rep Party this summer! Okay, maybe not raining models, but it was raining! We celebrated one of the last weekends of summer with many of our amazing Model Reps and their friends.
