Bailey- 2017 Senior

Bailey’s senior shoot was a unique and fun one! Bailey loves animals, so much so, that she plans to study to become a veterinarian! To incorporate her love for animals in her session, she brought along her sweet pup and her hedgehog! Getting animals to look at the camera is not the easiest, but we managed to still capture their adorable-ness and have fun while doing so!

Bailey has beautiful crystal blue eyes. The sunshine and light breeze made for a lovely day and added a pop of color to the nature scenery. Here are a few favorites from our shoot!

Hallie- 2017 A&M Senior

A couple of weekends ago, I decided to take a road trip down to College Station to take senior pictures of Hallie and visit the famous A&M. I have always wanted to visit Aggieland and my sweet friend, Hallie.

Hallie used to dream of attending A&M and talk about how excited she was to be on campus, go to football games, “whoop,” and get her education at this great Texas school and her mother’s alma mater.  Now she is graduating from her dream school and continuing on her path to chasing more dreams!

It was so wonderful to listen to her reflect on her years in college, the lessons she learned, and all that God has done in this time. Now that she has her education, so many more doors and opportunities are beginning to present themselves, and it is such an exciting time!

Here are a few of my favorite photos from our shoot.

Lizzie- 2017 Senior

My time with Lizzie was such a joy. We got to spend our shoot exploring some of my favorite Denton spots which happen to also be Denton’s most photo-worthy locations!

Lizzie has a lot to look forward to. She has worked diligently throughout high school towards her dreams for the future. Her work is definitely paying off! We incoorporated quite a bit of maroon during our shoot because Lizzie is going to be a future Aggie 🙂

Incoorporating her cheerleading uniform in her senior pictures was so much fun! Her team has won state three times and also placed twice at nationals!

Sarah Senior 2017

Sarah is so gifted in many areas! She has big dreams and she has already accomplished so much during her time in high school. For her senior shoot, we were able to encompass her giftings and talents and showcase the dreams that she is going to continue to chase past graduation!

Sarah is a competitive track athlete. It seems as though she is always winning medals and breaking records. She is going to continue pursuing her love for track and running at a Division 1 school! We got to spend some time together shooting at the track and get some shots of her in action!

Next, we headed to shoot Sarah with one of her favorite airplanes. Despite only being in high school, Sarah has dedicated a lot of time into learning how to fly and maintain airplanes. It won’t be long until she has her own pilots license! We got to shoot with an airplane that matched her track uniform- combining two of her passions!

I’m excited to see how Sarah continues to blossom as a beautiful, multi-talented girl. Her joy and contagious smile will light up any circle.

Courtney- 2017 Senior

Oh sweet Courtney!! Thank you for choosing me to capture your senior photos.

Courtney was such a joy to spend time with and photograph. She was one of those people who radiates happiness and sunshine, so I feel that these photos and the weather this day were absolutely perfect to showcase who she is!

She shared a bit of her heart with me; she is such a passionate, loving, and mature girl.  I am seriously stoked to see where she goes in life! She is a true beauty both inside and out.

Here are a few favorites from our shoot! I’ll start with this image of us getting photo bombed by the cutest puppy!

Ashlyn- 2017 Senior

Ashlyn has been looking forward to her senior picture for quite some time! I’m so thankful we waited until the beautiful Texas weather that comes in early March.

Ashlyn told me that she loves golden backlighting which is my very favorite aspect of shooting with natural light. This girl spoke my love language! We were incredibly blessed with great lighting for the day of her shoot.

This cute girl is such a sweetheart and a natural beauty! We had so much fun chatting as we explored the nature landscapes. Her blonde hair and gentle smile glowed even brighter with the addition of the golden sun. She has a great future ahead of her and a great perspective on life during the upcoming transitional times. I’m excited to see how she continues to chase her dreams!

We included some photos with basketball because this sport has played such a large part in Ashlyn’s life. Ashlyn plays for a select team that is about to head to nationals! She also plans to play in college.

Keep shining bright, Ashlyn! <3

Dallas Senior Photographer | Mackenzie 2017

While every senior session is very near and dear to my heart, I do hold these photos a little closer. Below, you will see my sweet sister Mackenzie is a senior in high school, graduating this May.

Throughout this session I was blown away by the beautiful woman she has become and overwhelmed by how thankful I am to be her sister.

When did my little sister transform into this beautiful young adult? (Also, when did she learn how to dress like a fashion blogger?)

It was so hard to choose which favorites to blog, but here are a few! Enjoy 🙂

A Christmas Best Friends Shoot

If you’ve followed my work for a while, you have probably seen me post photos of or with one of these two beautiful women! Arlee and Elizabeth are both two of my best friends. I feel so blessed to be close to the both of them, and I love how God has used our friendship to bring us closer to Him and the pursuits of HIs calling on our lives.

These women have been there throughout the beginning and continued growth of my business and artistry. They modeled for me and believed in me when I hardly knew how to operate a camera, and they continue to support me through my growth today, including modeling for a spontaneous shoot, celebrating the upcoming Christmas season!

Christmas is a very exciting and beautiful season. In Texas, it is not until this time that the leaves on the trees finally begin to change color. Despite the chill in the air, it is a great time to shoot. I had the idea of throwing together a spontaneous shoot at this beautiful treed location we came across, and I’m so happy these two agreed to model for me once more.

Dallas Senior Photographer | Elisabeth 2017

I had such a great time spending this fall afternoon with Elisabeth. She is a woman of many, many talents with a wonderful future ahead of her!

Elisabeth looked beautiful in both the city and nature backdrops, incorporating both into this session was a lot of fun. I love, love, LOVE her stunning cobalt blue dress and don’t get me started on how much I loved photographing Elisabeth with her guitar and ukelele!

Dallas Senior Photographer | Candace 2017

Candace was loads of fun! Her sweet and joyful personality definitely show throughout the images we got from our shoot!

We can all be thankful for Texas’s moderate fall temperatures. Since there has yet to be a drastic change of weather since summer, Candace was able to incorporate all different types of outfits. Below, you can see her rocking a white sundress, and as you scroll down, you will see her looking adorable in various layered outfits. She told me that she does not like to shop, but I don’t know if I can believe her- she’s so good at putting together outfits and colors!

Candace, her mother, and I had the greatest time exploring to find the best nature scenery. The colors on the leaves were beginning to show a hint of fall, which photographed beautifully this evening.
