Sometimes you just get to have fun during a photo session, and this was definitely one of those times. Alyssa is a Junior at Hays High School in Kyle, TX this year. She wanted something a little more edgy and editorial for her session. I think we achieved both. Isn’t her hair amazing? I loved the braid so much, but when we took it out and her gorgeous mane of natural curls was free, I almost died. Her fabulous makeup is by Jayna Love, and her hair is by Katelynn Johnson of Salon One 12.
I had so much fun during Madison’s portrait session. She is a Junior at Westlake High School this fall and I absolutely loved my time with her and her family. Madison is a busy girl who is competitive in dance as well as participating in various clubs and organizations and is a member of the Hyline drill team at Westlake. She is such a beautiful girl, inside and out. It was my pleasure to be her photographer and I look forward to getting to take her senior portraits next year. I am already plotting how we will top this session, because she is so amazing in these.
Please meet Brittany, a gorgeous Senior in the Class of 2015 at Hays High School. Brittany has been a competitive cheerleader since she was 8 years old. She will be attending Baylor in the fall and plans to be a cosmetic surgeon one day. With Brittany’s drive, determination, and personality, I have no doubt she will accomplish her goal. Brittany was a dream to photograph. Even though a cold front blew in that caused us to shiver the entire time, Brittany never complained once. We bundled her up between sets, and she was a trooper from start to finish. I think she enjoyed her day of pampering and modeling. I know I could photograph her all day and never get tired of it. She has personality galore. Brittany, I wish you the best of luck in your first year of college! I have no doubt that you will be the most beautiful surgeon in your graduating class one day.
Meet Sarah, a 2015 Senior at Hays High School. Sarah is planning to major in Biology next year! She was a competitive cheerleader and gymnast until an injury halted those activities. She is absolutely stunning! I love that hat on her – so pretty! The weather didn’t cooperate with us on her scheduled date but luckily we were able to take the photos the next day and the sun was magnificent! I’m so glad it worked out to have a beautiful, sunny Spring day filled with roses and bluebonnets.
Meet Lizzie, a 2015 Senior at Hays High School. Lizzie has 2 State Medals for softball and a scholarship to play for the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor next year, where she plans to study Child Psychology. Lizzie’s session was so much fun, especially since we got to see the sun shine for the first time in what felt like forever. Those yellow flowers were the perfect compliment to Lizzie’s blonde bombshell beauty!
Meet Elaina, a Junior at Hays High School. She is a varsity Hays High School cheerleader, a competitive cheerleader at The Elite Cheer Company, and a UCA All American Cheerleader. Blessed with beauty AND brains, Elaina is a member of the National Honor Society and the Leo Club. Elaina is one of my HKP Models and helped me to create a stunning portfolio of images. Can you believe it was sprinkling and raining on her during the entire session?
For my daughter’s 13th birthday party, we decided to do a photoshoot with a few of her friends. But, the weather forecast for Saturday was rain all day. So, I decided to just go with it and ordered a few clear umbrellas from Amazon Prime. I’m SO glad I did! It was worth trying to balance an umbrella with one hand while balancing my camera with the other to get these fun shots of my girl and her friends playing in the rain. They really are amazing kids and I had just as much fun as they did. We ended our evening with PF Changs, crepes, and then a sleepover with a long game of “zombie tag” in the dark. I think this age is pure magic; the perfect combination of little girl and big girl all rolled into one.
The older my girls get the more I love photographing older kids and teens! So in 2015, I will be focusing primarily on this group, since they’re my favorite. 😉 Don’t you just love this gold backdrop with their beautiful hair and skin tones? Gold is my favorite accessory.
