As sun has already set on 2017 graduations, you will find I'm still catching up on the blog from Spring sessions... Featured, this week, is recent Gateway Tech senior and 2017 graduate, Camryn! I met Camryn through a family friend and we had an amazing senior session together in May. One of my favorite things about senior portraits is getting to know each student and then planning out their session based on their favorite places, hangouts, and style.

Camryn was excited about the best of all genre's and we definitely delivered! From urban city skyline to forest fairytale complete with mist, and some summer fun and SoCo fashion editorial in between - This session definitely had it all! The best part was that Camryn brought her gorgeous prom dress! I will NEVER outgrow dress-up and a rock the prom dress session is just what I needed! 

Rock your prom dress sessions can be as crazy and fun as you want to make them! Camryn chose to keep her dress in good condition, but for anyone who's interested ... I'm down for all kinds of ideas for anyone who wants to do outside-the-box creative, in their most beautiful gown (AFTER it's been taken to prom, of course)! 

We finished Camryn's session with Austin's downtown skyline + 5 stories. The wind did it's wonderful thing perfectly perfect while Camryn did her thing and we got these amazing images and one of the most insane sunsets I've ever seen from up there! If you want to see what an entire senior session is like, from start to finish, be sure to scroll to the bottom for Camryn's amazing reveal video that was featured at her graduation party!

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!

Welcome to our first ever Senior Week! Welcoming class of 2018 and congratulating class of 2017 with giveaways and huge discounts on Senior Session bookings all week long! 

We are SUPER excited that Senior Week is finally here! We will be featuring some current and upcoming seniors on our blog this week as they are getting ready to graduate as well as those getting ready to enter in to their graduating year.

My first feature this week is Hannah Young | class of 2017 | Westlake High School. I've worked with Hannah throughout this past school year many times and she has absolutely spoiled me! This was my first session with Hannah and the first image I took of her that day - that light, and that expression! Absolutely beautiful scene! Hannah is active in MMA and choir (stunning voice!) and is most looking forward to going to college and majoring in International Business. She is already a world traveler with a few more amazing trips scheduled for this summer (take me with yooooouuuuuu!) so I can absolutely see her taking it to the next level! Go Hannah!
