I had the pleasure of photographing this beautiful lady - Tracey! Isn't she gorgeous? While I was photographing her, I asked her if she had children - she told me she had grown children. I had to stop and be all rude "How old are you?" I couldn't believe this fresh face was old enough to have grown children!!

Tracey graduated with a Bachelors Of Science in Nursing. She is so kind, I know she is going to be a sweet and compassionate nurse!!

Congratulations Tracey! Wishing you all the best!!!

I don't know why this young lady isn't a super model.  That long flowing hair!   Those long legs!  Those eyes!  That smile!   OMGeeeee!   I'd like to introduce you to Kendal, my beautiful Senior!!

Kendal is a quiet, elegant young lady.   I would pose her and be struck with her dazzling smile.   She just seamlessly moved from one post to another.  But while she was elegant and poised during our session, she's a force to be reckoned with at school.    She's a member of the varsity Vollyball and Track team.   She also coaches her little sister who also plays vollyball. 

When Kendal is not playing sports, she loves to hang out with her girlfriends.  A night watching a scary movie and having dinner at Whata...

When my daughter Desiree was growing up, she had a dear friend named Katherine.  They have been friends since Jr. High.  Well Alyssa is Katherine's niece and she is a carbon copy of her Aunt Katherine!!  They look alike, they talk alike and they act alike!! 

Alyssa comes from a large, loving family.   You can see the way her family looks at her that they are so proud of Alyssa and just adore her. 

The day of the photo session, Alyssa wanted to start downtown.  Well, it didn't occur to us that it was a Homecoming night and there were people everywhere taking photos in their homecoming outfits.  I mean - that was fun to watch and all, but a lot going on around us.   So we hung around downtown and had lots of great photo shoots.  Then her dad had a great idea - how abo...

This girl was born to be in front of a camera!!  Madeline is a 2020 Senior from Airline High School in Bossier City, LA.  They travel to Texas often to visit family. Last summer I did a Teen Photo Session for Madeline and this year I was honored they asked me to do her Senior Session!

Madeline is GORGEOUS, you can easily see that from her photos but she is also a very active and intelligent young lady. She is Co-Captain of the AHS cheerleaders, HAS A 4.12 GPA (wow!), belongs to the National Honor Society, Beta Club and Mu Alpha Theata, she is Senior Senator for Student Council and she loves pole vaulting, kayaking and swimming. Wow Wow Wow!

She's also very sweet. I just love the time I get to spend with her. Her mom is too. Oh and her Aunt Amy.

Madeline hasn't 100% made up her mind wh...

Just when I thought Senior season was over, I get a call booking another one.  Jadyn is a graduate of Del Valle High School in Austin and his family had not had time to get his senior photos done.  So I was excited to have another Senior!!

I met Jadyn on the day of our session and he was so handsome.  He had a quick and easy smile and was ready to do anything I asked of him.  As we walked around and chatted, I learned that he was a Photoshop expert!   So of course we had a lot to talk about - he is a wealth of information!!

Jadyn is so intelligent - he graduated early in the top 10% of his class!!  He is enrolling at Victoria College in the RN Nursing program.    I know he is going to do great.  He is such a sweetheart.

Thank you Jadyn for being so nice...

I would love for you to meet my Bilton Senior - Caitlyn!  Caitlyn is a gradate of Victoria West High School.

I feel like I keep telling the same story about my seniors - that the weather was a factor!  We had the craziest Spring - lots of rain, lots of wind.  And this day was absolutely no different.   We woke up to rain but the predictions were that it would end early.   So we kept our fingers crossed and didn't cancel.  And it worked - we had a nice cool breeze and  the sun even peeked out from behind the clouds!  I told Caitlyn that God was shining down on her!

Caitlyn is a quiet soul and an easy smile.  My time with her was so pleasant - she was so happy to do anything I asked her to do (which can sometimes feel awkward! LOL!) .  I learned that no...

Three years ago I was photographing Makenzi's older sister Makayla.   I can't believe it's been 3 years.    Makayla was fun and spunky and so is Makenzi!!   We had such a fun time together.

Makenzi is a graduate of Victoria East High School.  She is a bit on the shy side but I can tell she is a happy girl.  She had a quick and easy smile and during our session she would be quietly singing as we walked around.   She looked pretty and I could tell she felt pretty.  She was so comfortable in front of the camera and was easy breezy to work with.   Probably our most memorable moment was trying to take photos of her with her large gold balloons in crazy South Texas spring winds!   She had to hold on to those tight.   The effort was worth it though - those are my favorite...
