Artistic Isn't Descripitive Enough For This Senior
With at the very least, three different string instruments, as well as an armful of sketchbooks, Jordan Gosnell marched into our studio with an air of confidence and a bright, gorgeous smile! We were so excited to be working with another artist, and this time she was a senior at Legacy Christian Academy as well!
Because she was artistic, Jordan wanted a few photos that expressed her inner self, but she also wanted a rustic look where she could
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
JFK Makes An Appearance During Senior Photo Session
Walking around quaint Downtown McKinney is always a pleasure, but Prosper High School senior, Regan Pettis, made it even more so during her North Dallas senior photo shoot!
We first me the spunky blonde and her mom, Nikki, in Downtown McKinney on a warm Saturday afternoon. Luckily for us, the impending rain disappeared and left us with a gorgeous clear Texas sky, and we immediately got to work!
It wasn’t long for us to realize that Regan isn’t just any other senior. This girl...
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...
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...
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...
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...
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...
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...
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...
Cheerleader Fends off Spider at Luscombe Farms
Olivia told us as we strolled down the streets of Downtown McKinney that she is a senior at Heritage High School. She heard about us through her good friend Kayla Underwood, who you may know from her North Dallas senior shoot with us.
Luscombe Farms and Downtown McKinney are very popular spots to have your senior photos taken, and Olivia couldn’t decide which one she liked more, so we did...
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....
Dancer is Buried in Corn During Senior Portrait Session
Maybe we are being a little dramatic when we say that Jaedyn Avery, a senior at Liberty High School, was buried by corn, but she was definitely covered in it by the time her DFW senior portrait session with us was over!
As a dancer, Jaedyn had requested that we shoot photos of her jumping and leaping across an industrial space, so when we found an empty area in Downtown McKinney where Jaedyn could jump. We didn’t question all of the corn kernels that were laying around on the ground though. After a few minutes, we heard a whirring sound. Confused, our team looked up and found that it had begun to rain corn! Apparently, we had placed ourselves in a corn mill, and the kernels were escaping and pouring all over Jaedyn, who was standing smack dab in the middle of the mill...
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...
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...
Tractors, Downtown McKinney, and One Pretty Lady - Bella's Senior Pictures
Our shoot with senior, Bella Deen was extraordinary! She attends McKinney North High School and brought her mother, Summer, along to the studio to kick off her session! The glamorous Whitney Stiles got right to work in perfecting our lovely model. In the studio, we brought out the ol’ stars and stripes for some iconic and meaningful photographs - Bella’s boyfriend is in the military and the pink shirt she is wearing is a support the troops shirt...
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)...
Check it out - Our Last Model Rep Session of the Year Ended With a Bang!
This shoot was all about the bling! We asked Myrna Phillips to join us for this shoot. Myrna Phillips, gifted jewelry designer and a dear friend to the studio, supplied us with the goods that bedazzled our talented Senior Model Reps Shannon Milburn, Mikaela Tisdale, and Jordan Whittle! Ethan Luman was also with us for this shoot, but he turned down our offer to wear some of the sparkling pieces..

Isabella's Seniority Session in McKinney
We would love to introduce you to one of our gorgeous 2014 seniors, Isabella Bassan! Thanks to our 2014 Model Rep, Marissa Robinson, Isabella heard about us and decided to schedule our Seniority session.
We met Isabella and her mother in Downtown McKinney where we started the session off with Isabella in her Texas Tech shirt. After our usual pass through the uniquely textured streets and alleys of Downtown McKinney, we drove over to Towne Lake Park. We love the combinations of these two locations due to their complete differences...
A Funny Session with Plano Senior High School senior, Matt Brown!
Introducing… Plano Senior High School senior, Matt Brown! Matt, along with his mother and two sisters, met us in Downtown McKinney for his Seniority Session.

Lacy's Fun Urban Seniority Session in Downtown McKinney
We had the privilege of photographing Stephen F. Austin State University senior, Lacy Wyatt, recently. Lacy came to us for a seniority session and opted for hair/makeup with our amazing stylist Whitney. Lacy and her mother met us at the studio and Whitney got started right away! We love sitting with our seniors during this time to talk about the clothing they brought, their ideas for the shoot location, and any questions they might have for us. Once Whitney was finished working her magic, we headed over to Downtown McKinney for the real fun...
Our Downtown McKinney Session with Ben Murto
Our fantastic 2014 senior model rep, Hadlie Tucker, referred this cool senior to us for his senior portraits. Ben attends McKinney North High School and has known Hadlie since they were in third grade! Ben’s mom contacted us about setting up his seniority session last Fall but we were waiting for the day his braces came off, which was definitely later than expected. Luckily, they finally came off at the end of January and we set an appointment to photograph Ben in Downtown McKinney...
A Fun Session with Keller High School Senior, Caitlin Velasquez

Richardson Competitive Cheerleader Brianna's Senior Model Rep Session
Brianna, a Richardson High School senior, is the first of many seniors taking part in our 2014 Senior Model Rep Program. We kicked off Brianna’s session at our studio in Frisco, and in true “model” style, she went straight to hair and makeup with our artist/stylist, Whitney Stiles. After all of the primping we began with some carefree and fun studio shots. Brianna is on the cheer squad at her school, as well as a competitive cheerleader with Cheer Athletics. We were able to capture some of her stunning...
