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, Mikaela said that she planned to try and go to OSU in the fall, but that she was really hoping to be able to go off to college with fellow Senior Model Rep and best friend, Reid Parr, who you may recognize from her senior session with us or even her group session with Makenna and Madison!

With an amazing makeup job done by The Makeup Junkie, we were able to capture Mikaela’s spirit against the gorgeous glow of the Christmas lights, and we can say that we LOVED Mikaela’s dark lipstick, a fashion staple this fall!

The future criminal justice major knows one or two things about justice having grown up as one of four girls! We headed back to the studio where we had a surprise visit from Reid and from Mikaela’s cousin!

We really enjoyed photographing Mikaela for her senior photo session, and it was wonderful to see how loved and supported she was by her friends!

Maddie rocked her session!

“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 visiting. Tyler R. Brown captured my senior year memories in pictures that will last a lifetime. My hair and makeup looked so on fleek, I didn’t even know my hair could look as good as it did, and I can’t forget my eyebrows and eyeshadow, just perfect!

For my personal session we drove to a beautiful privately owned farm property by the name of Luscombe Farms and besides the fact that my makeup was melting off in the scorching hot sun, my pictures turned out simply stunning. Macy and I together came up with cute, creative, and some country poses to do to get that country yet chic look. From sitting inside of a truck to cruising through sunflowers, it all felt like an adventure!

On a separate note, being a Senior Model Rep for their team was such a great once in a lifetime opportunity. As a rep I was able to do separate shoots that had creative themes and met some people that I now call some of my closest besties. The photo shoots were set up to be in groups which allowed me to hop out of my comfort zone and meet other people that attend different high schools, in Frisco and even outside of Frisco.

If it wasn’t for doing Tyler R. Brown photography I wouldn’t have gotten the chance to meet the amounts of friends that I did. For example, several of the girls loved coffee so we got the chance to go to Downtown McKinney and shoot as the coffee shop, Filtered which was so much fun just making memories and sipping coffee all while taking fabulous photos. The environment in the studio was overall welcoming and so much fun, the crew really knows how to make you laugh and catch that funky side on camera.

I would highly recommend taking all your portraits with them; my friends, family, and I will definitely be back to take more.”
