Best of Dallas : The Fort Worth Stock Yards
Exploring DFW has been a blast so far, but when we woke up the morning of the Fort Worth Stock Yards Session, we knew it was going to be a good day. With a temperature already in the triple digits, our team geared up for what should have been a scorching North Texas day. But when we rolled up to the famous Fort Worth Stock Yards, there was a gentle breeze flowing through the shops, and although it smelled
Cheerleader Turns Senior Model For a Day
Hanah Simmons is no stranger to hard work. This Liberty High School senior is the daughter of two gymnasts who run a cheer and gymnastics program in North Texas with their own gym! She also works as a trainer at an American Ninja Warrior type gym and she told us how fun it was to try out all of the obstacles as well as teach others how to traverse them safely!
But when we scheduled a full
The Best of Dallas: Fort Worth Botanical Gardens
As we make our way through our list of DFW’s best landmarks, our time to venture out to Fort Worth’s Botanical Gardens had arrived! Senior Model Reps Angela, Erin, and Isabel came out with us to enjoy the amazing weather and gorgeous views the gardens provide!
We definitely should have planned on leaving the studio earlier than we did, because we ran into some pretty gnarly traffic on 121! We were almost worried we would miss some optimal “golden hour” light, but thank goodness we were able to make it to the gardens
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...
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
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...
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...
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...
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...
Modeling is a Walk in the Park - Not
If you think that modeling is as easy as it looks, then Riley, Lauren, and Sophie could tell you a thing or two.
Thankfully, these lovely ladies have modeling experience. While Riley and Sophie are a part of our 2016 Senior Model Team, Lauren had a Model for a Day session with us earlier this year. Normally, we wouldn’t ask models outside of our Senior Model team to join us on a group shoot, but Lauren is Riley’s best friend and it was her birthday!
The seniors from Liberty High School and Flower Mound High School met...
Volleyball is Life - Or At Least it is to These Seniors
When you have as many volleyball players as we do on our Senior Model Rep Team – you have to have a volleyball themed session!
Rachel Rhoades, Chelsea Roemer, and Gabi Norsworthy joined us in the studio for a fun and quick session surrounding their favorite game. You should recognize all of these gorgeous young ladies as they have been in multiple shoots with us. Rachel’s been in the Summer Florals Session earlier this year, as well as the recent Winter session, and...
The Christmas Blues Can't Get These Two Seniors
The bells are jingling, kids are caroling, trees are sparkling, and couples are attempting to ice skate without breaking an ankle. That’s right: it’s Christmas time in Texas.
When Rachel and Maddie met our team at Frisco Square it was mildly cold at 60 degrees. As most Dallas Texans are aware, the weather has its own mind and will and the weather men can only guess at what the temperature will be on a day to day basis. We chatted with the lovely two Senior Model Reps, Maddie Snowden, a senior at Heritage High School, and Liberty...
Basketball Player Throws Photographer For A Hoop
We know the saying is that someone is ‘thrown for a loop’ but we couldn’t pass up the invariable pun for Lauren’s favorite sport. Lauren McKeen is a senior this year at Frisco Liberty High School, and a star player on their varsity basketball team. While having her hair and makeup done, Lauren told our team that she plans on playing in college next year and we can’t wait to see where she decides to go!
As we worked through a few poses in the studio to loosen up, Lauren told us that she lives in Newman Village just down the street from the studio! So we...
Senior Blows Photographer Away
We trudged up the hill of Mt. Zion Cemetery to the music of honking horns, bulldozers, and the general white noise of construction. The once gorgeous hill located off of 423 and mere minutes from our studio, was now surrounded by dirt mounds and bright orange cones. You would think that we would just throw in the hat and move on to a different location. But, no. Our team was determined to show off Liberty High School Senior, Lauren Burrell, and to capture some bright and lovely photos of her among the tall grass and trees that Mt. Zion is well-known for.
It’s no surprise to our team that we were able to grab beautiful shots of Lauren, even with John Deere singing his heart out just behind her. This All-American Diver is no stranger to focus, and she just smiled through the noise and as...
The Secret Life of a Glamazon
With a mom for a judge, it’s no wonder that Senior Model Rep, Rachel Rhoades, is a force to be reckoned with. Much like the Amazonians, strong women must run in the Rhoades family, because when Rachel waltzed into our studio, she brought her aunt Lee with her ...
Seniors Turn into Flowers at Portrait Session
Hot! Hot! Hot! The Texas sun was beating down on our team as we made our way around the Shops at Legacy with 2016 Senior Model Reps: Brianna, Rachel, and Chelsea. Lucky for us, our models are graceful glisteners and were not perturbed by the heat at all!
We originally met Brianna, Chelsea, and Rachel in our studio...
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...
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...
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...
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! She is not only extremely glamorous, she’s very giving – Tia spends a lot of her free time volunteering in her community, coaching younger athletes, and tutoring other students at Liberty High School, in Frisco, Texas.
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.”...
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..
A Rustic Country Session with 2015 Model Reps Taylor, Cora and Logan!
Taylor, a senior at Liberty High School, started off in a blaze of color in our studio, impressing us with her golden locks and bright smile. Our two other models that day: Logan, a senior at McKinney High School; and Cora, a senior at Richardson High School; hopped into the frame and the ladies went to town taking selfies and enjoying each other’s style as they posed their way across our studio...
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...
Downtown McKinney and Towne Lake Park Senior Portraits with Daniela Castro
We love it when the friends of our models come to us for their senior portraits! Daniela is a friend of our lovely 2014 model rep, Lindsay Rudoff, and a senior at Liberty High School in Frisco. We met Daniela and her mother in Downtown McKinney, where we started off her senior portrait session with some really cool, bright red, gas pumps...
Our Model Rep Call Back Session with Kaylee and Lindsay
We have been so busy with our 2014 seniors this fall and the weather hasn't always been on our side so we were forced to schedule a call back session with these two lovely ladies! Kaylee is a senior at Centennial High School and Lindsay is a senior at Liberty High School. Both are 2014 Senior Model Reps and we love working with them...
Liberty High School Senior Model Rep Lindsay's Studio Session
We’d like to introduce Lindsay, one of our 2014 senior model reps, from Liberty High School. It’s no surprise that we started off with our amazing hair stylist and makeup artist, Whitney Stiles. Whitney does a wonderful job getting our seniors camera ready and looking fantastic! With hair and makeup complete, Lindsay was ready for lights…camera…action! Her sparkling, off the shoulder, turquoise dress and unique heels screamed high fashion and really brought out her gorgeous eyes...
