Clara - TCA Senior 2019

AUGUST 2018 - CLARA!! This girl just exudes JOY!! What an absolute treat to get to take Clara’s AND Kate’s AND Maddie’s Senior Photos in Breckenridge, Colorado!!! I have known Clara’s family for over 25 years and I coached Clara last year in Varsity Cheerleading and we go to the same church!! So it was an absolute honor to capture Clara as I know her!! Stunning!!

Cathy Jean - TCA Senior 2018

September 2017 - Highland Park Village, Versailles Park, Lakeside Park - Cathy Jean was such a delight to work with!  I also loved that she and her mom were able to have several photos together!  Cant beat the colorful tiles either!!

Marifer - Bishop Lynch 2018

March 2018 - What a delight she was!  Super friendly and outgoing and I loved her color choices of clothing for her session!  Lots in bloom this past spring, especially there at Lakeside Park!

Lauren - TCA Senior 2018

September 2017 - Highland Park - I really really loved this session!  Lauren and her mom were the absolute best!  Never, ever before had I forgotten my memory card for a photo session, but it happened with Lauren!  I was mortified and so thankful for my husband and son that got the memory card to me in 30 min. record time!  Grateful that I usually plan more time than needed for each senior, you just never know what could happen!   Lauren and Lisa could not have been more gracious and patient, and I must say, Lauren's photos turned out amazing!  The colors of fall, the lighting and Lauren's gorgeous eyes could not have been more perfect!

When you forget the memory card

And the session still goes FABULOUS and the images turn out AMAZING!!  Thank you Lauren and LIsa!!

Mack & Caroline - Seniors 2018

Arbor Hills Nature Preserve - Great afternoon back in September with these twins and Super Dog Astro!  Thinking back, Astro had the hard job of all, to have to sit still with ALL the people walking and passing by!  We even saw Mr. Larry List on a jog over the bridge that afternoon!  Love these photos of them each individually and together!

Courtney - TCA Senior 2018

It was of course a super hot August afternoon, but Vitruvian Park was the perfect setting for Courtney!  A variety of backgrounds for photos all within walking distance!  Loved this session with Courtney and was appreciative to her sister Lindsey for getting true genuine laughs out of Courtney!  They were a cute duo!

Preston - December 2017 - Senior '18

Deep Ellum is one of my favorite places to shoot for senior guys.  There are so many alley ways and rustic buildings and colors that its hard to ever get tired of it.  We started in Deep Ellum and then went over near the Chase building downtown where we found lots of colors still on the trees!  Not everyone can pull off the look you need in these two places but Preston certainly did!   I'm anxious to hear if Preston has decided to pursue track in college or go another route.  Whichever decision he makes, he will do well!!

Mallory - November 2017 - Senior '18

I love this family!  So spending the day with Mallory and her mom was a treat!  Not to mention, I loved hearing about Mallory's pursuit of an acting/drama (did I say that right?) in college!  Her determination is admirable as she goes to dozens of auditions all over the U.S., all while keeping up with the academic demands of her senior year AND getting the LEAD in the school musical!  Mallory!  I cant wait to see where you choose to spend your college years!

Haley Kate - TCA Senior 2018

Labor Day Weekend:  Literally a dream come true, to fly to Rosemary Beach and take one my closest friends, daughters senior photos!  We had more fun than you should be allowed to have on a photo session!  We lived it up with no limit on outfits or locations!  This was the essence of a "#onlocation" session!  As you can see from the photos, HK is precious and I could have stayed for days, but we finally decided to end by throwing the flowers for some action shots!  All that to say, I am TOTALLY available for travel, just ask, we can work something out!!  =)

Daniel - TCA Senior 2018

This is a great guy!  I loved the time with Daniel and his family on this Saturday evening in August!  (Yes! I'm a little behind on blogging!)  We found lots of places in Deep Ellum, which I probably wouldn't suggest again on a Saturday night, but it definitely made it interesting and the people walking around did love his suit!  haha!!   After Deep Ellum, we traveled over to the top of a Downtown Dallas parking garage!  Daniel is a well-liked guy, talented guitarist and played varsity football at TCA.  He also had a big impact on my own son.   I know Daniel will do well wherever he chooses to go to school!!

Kennedy - TCA Senior 2018

Loved spending the afternoon with this fantastic girl who is also Co-Captain on the TCA Varsity Cheer Team, which I am lucky enough to get to help coach!  We started at The Adriatica in McKinney, then traveled North to a little spot off Hwy 380 where I told Kennedy I was going to name the location after her!   It was so pretty and the colors of the leaves could not have been more striking!!  THEN, we sent to a couple of my favorite places in Prosper.  It was a full afternoon and I love the changes in light from beginning to end.  Kennedy would love to pursue her love for acting in college, I can't wait to see where she decides to go!

LOCATION:  Adriatica in McKinney and Prosper, TX

Kuhne Family - March 2017 - Prairie Creek Park

This is the Kuhne family!  My husband went to high school with both Brad and Kristen so our family has a long history of life overlapping.  Kristen and I had mutual friends and we were both involved in Junior League of Richardson but REALLY got to know each other in playgroup with our oldest boys!  haha!  

Kristen was running for a second term on the RISD school board, which she WON by the way, and needed an updated family photo.  As you can see by the various shots they are a close family that likes to have fun!  We got to re-create a favorite photo of the two boys from when they were toddlers and I think its a sore subject that the youngest son is also the tallest of the three men!  Love this family and they were a joy to spend the afternoon with!

Kat - March 2017 - PWSH Senior 2017

Katharine, or Kat as her friends and family call her is just down right GORGEOUS!  Her blonde hair with the stunning backlight couldn't have been prettier!   I met Kat's mom, Laura when we were freshmen at Baylor so it was especially cool to get to take Kat's Senior Photos!  We started out at the Adriatica in McKinney and then traveled into several areas of Prosper!  You just can't beat the lighting and the sunsets way out in the country.  haha!  Thank you Kat for a beautiful session and I know you'll love Texas Tech in the fall!

Isabella - December 2016 - Senior 2017

This is Isabella!  Isn't she absolutely adorable!  We met out at Myers Park in McKinney and then ventured over to a little spot in Prosper that I have found!  This was the first time I had met Isabella and we instantly clicked!   Those big brown eyes, her shiny black hair and that beautiful smile made her session a breeze!  Not to mention she could play a real life "Belle" and her  personality was precious!!  I loved that she was willing to climb fences (that seems to be a common theme in my sessions... oops) and even after we were over the fence and saw the very large guard dog she was willing to let me take more photos before we hopped back over!  =)  I loved getting to know her and I am positive she is going to thrive at the University of Texas!

Elliott Family - Aboretum November 2016

There is no session in 2016 or to date that has moved me as much as The Elliott Family.  I can't even put into words the emotion of being behind the camera watching this incredible family interact and love on each other.  If I'm just honest, I was in tears several times throughout the session.  Watching Roddy and Dee and the love they have for their three sons, daughter in law, Kathleen and their grandchildren was extraordinary.  Dee, the grandfather, has ALS and it was the idea of Kathleen, their daughter in law, to get the entire family together for a memorable photo session and she chose ME as the photographer!  It only took a few minutes to fall in love with this family.  Scroll down and you will too!   They were funny and joyful and took serious photos but in general had a good time being together.  (See the photo a few down where they mimicked Shakespeare!   There isn't a single time when I see one of these photos that I don't say a prayer for them.  I will always be grateful to Kathleen for trusting me to capture this special day!
