Isabel is a Senior this year at Faith Academy and she and her family wanted to start her senior photos with a session at the Victoria Aquatics Center. They wanted to start here because swimming is a HUGE part of Isabel's life.

She is a competitive swimmer and is so accomplished!! Isabel is an 8 time state qualifier. In 2017, she won a bronze metal at State with the 100 meter breaststroke, she has been TISCA & TAPPPS academic all-state in her junior & senior year and is a 2019 Victoria Advocate Advosports nominee. Isabel also teaches swimming in her spare time. We had so much fun at this session!

Emalee loves coun...

I met Alicia last year when she was a junior.  She and her mom Olga came along when I photographed Clara Rodriguez's senior shoot.   Olga promised me they would be back to hire me when Alicia was a senior.  And they did.  I was so excited to see them all again.  They are such a warm, sweet family. 

Alicia couldn't decide where she wanted to take her senior pics, she finally said "I live downtown, come to my house and we'll figure it out".  So that's what we did .  We literally did the first of her shoot within a block of her house.   We found so many nuggets in downtown Victoria.  Alicia is so carefree and unassuming.  She can rock some heels and get down home with some flats.   I'm pretty sure I gave her hair "ojo" (that's Mexican for voodoo in case you...
