Our 2018 Seniors Take Denton by Storm
When you live in Texas, you never know what the weather is going to do. Although we had a 20% chance of precipitation – which in North Texas that could mean rain, sleet, snow, hail, frogs, etc. – our team was confident that our biggest photo shoot to date would go off without a hitch. With our models safely buckled, and some others following, we led a caravan down to Denton Square – a staple of DFW.
Lovingly known as the ‘Lil' d’, Denton
These Mermaid Seniors Are No Fantasy
When is it the best time to see mermaids in Texas? Well – mostly all year because it’s nearly always hot, but we’re going to go with the summer because North Texas seniors Reese, Angela, and Gabby allowed us to play with their hair and makeup in order to turn them into mystifying mermaids!
With the help of jewelry designer and stylist, Myrna Phillips, our team was able to satisfy our craving for a gorgeous and colorful mermaid photo shoot! Myrna’s unique
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
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...
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
Stunning Senior Summer Photo Shoot
With the start of the school year and football season, it’s no wonder that our busy 2017 seniors want to have their senior photo sessions as soon as possible! Most people like to ask us what the best time of year for senior pictures to be done is and our answer almost every time is the summer and fall for Texas seniors. As every Texan knows, it’s hot in July and August. But that shouldn’t deter you from having your photos done! Summer is a wonderful time for senior pictures, as senior model rep, Tyler Crew, can tell you!
We began her session at Arbor Hills Nature Preserve, and after a good hike, itchy grass, and splashing through...
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...
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...
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...
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...
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...
Light as a Feather, Fluffier Than a Pillow
They were absolutely everywhere. Our team and models stared in amazement at the mess we had just made, and then we just burst into laughter!
North Dallas 2017 Senior Model Reps Alana, Melissa, and Kailyn met us at the studio in Frisco, Texas for a fun-filled and slightly nostalgic slumber party group session. Equipped with popcorn, pizza, and sodas the seniors shared funny stories about their old slumber parties and talked about how excited they were for the upcoming year.
That’s when our team brought out the big guns: three over-stuffed feather pillows, and permission to make the biggest mess they could! It wasn’t too long before the room was covered in feathers, and although there was some sneezing, it was between laughter and joking. Our...
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...
Fly Away With Us Into The Past
This shoot, in a word, was awesome. We couldn’t believe it when we got word that McKinney International Airport was willing to let us use their runway for a photoshoot. But it didn’t end there. When our team contacted Eric – the airports coordinator, he had a surprise for us. Eric had spoken with an owner of a NC21104 Stinson Reliant SR-10 a.k.a.: a REALLY cool plane.
Tom, the plane’s owner, had found the old plane and completely restored it to it’s original glory. And let us..
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...
How To Be The Perfect Hipster
Her hair was on fire! Ok, not really, but Elite Model Rep, Madi does have some flawless red hair that lights up like a flame in the afternoon sunlight. It’s Shakespeare worthy, and that’s an understatement. Why are we talking about her glorious hair? Because she and two of our Top Model Reps joined us for another group session, and this one was themed Hipster.
Now, for the people...
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 ...
Outlaws Take Downtown Prosper
Tyler looked stunned and then busted out laughing as Madeline, a senior at Liberty High School, tried to explain that a corn gap is where she and fellow Senior Model Reps Mandi and Lizzie were currently standing. “You know, like a gap in the corn field that doesn’t have any spiders. Like, #corngap is the best.” That did it...
Giant Spider Threatens Seniors
Flower crowns, bright smiles, and groovy sunglasses reigned at our Boho shoot with four lovely Top models: Savannah, Brooke, Chelsea, and Jocelynn.
Our studio was set up and ready to go when Chelsea and Brooke popped into our studio to start us off! You may recognized Chelsea from our Summer Florals shoot with Brianna and Rachel, and we were excited to have her back in our studio for round two. The two other fabulous models; Savannah and Jocelyn, trickled...
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...
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...
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 Glowing Model Rep Session with Reid, Madison, and Makenna
We got in touch with our natural side for this Model Rep Session with our Senior Model Reps: Reid Parr, Madison DeVor, and McKenna Kinnamon!
Taking advantage of our air conditioning, our models met us at the studio for some R&R with Erica Rodriguez, one of our impeccable hair and makeup artists! After Erica had perfected these gorgeous ladies, they hit the studio with Tyler for a few shots. Let me tell you – our models brought the sass at this model rep group session...
A Model Rep Session in the Country with Brooke, Kristin, and Lexi
Our Senior Rep Models got a taste of the Texas countryside when we headed to Luscombe Farms for a group session with Brooke, Kristin, and Lexi. They handled it like the southern belles that they truly are.
While attempting to let the heat subside, these lovely ladies met up at the studio for a round of hair and makeup with the talented Whitney Stiles. After being primped and primed, our belles found their grace and poise in the studio...
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.
As our models, and their friends, arrived at the studio, we handed each of them a card with their name on one side and a number on the other. This was the first of several games and a great ice breaker...
Madison, Jaicee, and Taylor go Red, White, and Blue
U-S-A! U-S-A! U-S-A! We were all about American pride for our Americana shoot with Jaicee Morriss, Taylor Hernandez, and Madison DeVor! Jaciee is a senior at Little Elm High School, Taylor is a senior at Liberty High School, and Madison is a senior at Lone Star High School...
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...
2015 Senior Model Rep Group Session with Haley and Shannon
Here is the first of many sessions with our 2015 Senior Model Reps! This session includes our wonderful models, Haley Rodriguez and Shannon Dyer. Haley is a senior at Heritage High School in Frisco and Shannon is a senior at Ursuline Academy of Dallas so this was not only their first session with us, but their first time meeting each other as well...
2014 Cap & Gown/College Shirt Shoot - Part Two
They are finally here… The photos from our second cap & gown session with our fabulous 2014 seniors! We are so lucky to have had the privilege of working with each and every one of these young adults throughout the past school year. If you read about our first cap and gown session, you know that we scheduled 15 minute time slots for any 2014 seniors who were interested in getting some shots in their cap and gown and college t-shirts...
2014 Valentine Shoot with Some Awesome Seniors!
We invited some of our models to bring their significant other or a friend to our Valentine Shoot this past weekend and we had such a great time! We decorated the studio with a table full of candy, cupcakes, cake balls, and Kool Aid, hung red and pink paper lanterns, and even had a huge teddy bear. Once Brad, Chabeli, Marissa and their friends arrived, we turned up the music and starting taking pictures right away. One thing we love about our 2014 senior model reps is the fact that they all have a great time in front of the camera and they aren’t afraid to act a little goofy...
