Featured Grad: Zach C. Westlake High School, Austin Texas,  Class of 2017

In less than a week Zach C will be done with his final year of Westlake High School and on his way to the University of Wisconsin at the end of the Summer. I had the pleasure of working with him and his wonderful family, throughout the year, on many senior portrait projects and was super impressed with his ease in front of the camera! He was a total natural and matched that with a great sense of humor and confidence. 

It just so happens that Zach digs suits and bowties, which is a rarity these days, and such a classic look. My camera and I were so happy to have an afternoon with Zach and his dapper style both in the studio for a little GQ editorial look, and then a few stops around downtown Austin! 

With his senior year just about behind him in just a few days, Zach is most looking forward to exploring his future college home, University of Wisconsin, Madison, and the new people and experiences that come with starting college, as well. He plans to major in physics.

Being athletic by nature, Zach has accomplished All-District in Lacrosse in both 2014 and 2015, before taking on rowing this past and current year. Rowing for Texas Rowing Center in Austin has gained him Men's Varsity Captain in the first year, and he is most looking forward to Rowing Nationals where he will be competing in the Varsity Men's double scull in Sarasota, FL. I wish you luck on all of your adventures, Zach! It has been wonderful working with you and getting to know you and your wonderful family!

We are SUPER excited that Senior Week has been such a success! It's been so much fun giving out the gift cards! We will continue featuring some current and upcoming seniors on our blog during the weeks as they are getting ready to graduate as well as those getting ready to enter into their graduating year.


My last feature this week is Regents School of Austin upcoming senior, McKenna Dunworth AND Westlake High School upcoming senior, Ruth Young | both class of 2018.


Austin, Texas upcoming seniors, Ruth and McKenna have been friends since they were in kindergarten and were a blast to photograph together! That is one of the things I love about inviting a best friend along on your senior portrait session - they tend to forget about the photoshoot and just have fun and laugh together and it's so natural in front of the camera! Good friends will bring out the best in each other and one of the things I love most about my job, is creatively documenting meaningful relationships and interactions. Candid laughter and inside jokes are the BEST!


It's also nice to have that friend along, that will help you with your outfits and tell you when you have lipstick on your teeth and tell you when you slay. But....we happen to have a makeup artist, that will fix that lipstick - so you can focus on telling each other you look fabulous and just have fun! If I could tell my future self about it, I would say it's so amazing to look back on pictures during this time in your life, just before you've gone off to college and grown so much. I truly cherish the pictures I have with my best girlfriends and they are just out of focus snapshots. I would absolutely LOVE to have some amazing professional lifestyle images like this, of my best girlfriends together. 


I appreciate all the students and parents who took the time to look at my work this week and book a senior portrait experience with us. To be chosen to document such an important time in your life is an amazing privilege! I look forward to getting to know each and every one of you so we can plan the most amazing session, ever! 




We have opened up Austin bookings for JUNE, JULY, and AUGUST senior sessions all the way to the end of February 2018 . If you are interested in a Destination Senior Session, we will be traveling to Duluth Mn, Washington State, and Italy this Summer and Fall!  We are developing some special all-inclusive collections for destination sessions to keep it fun and effortless on the go!
