Kenzie is a senior at Judson HS. She’s a swimmer on the Rocket team and good enough to earn a college scholarship. We photographed her sister about 3 years ago, so they came back this time for her senior portraits. Kenzie is all about smiling, being happy, and of course swimming. It was hard to get any images without her smiling, that’s just the type of person she is… of course we got a couple though. The day started out cloudy, but quickly made it’s way to hazy sun. The temps got into the lower 90s so she was pretty hot… good thing for rice paper (to pat the sweat of the face). We captured images all over the property, as well as two of our neighbor’s property. From an ivy laden wall to blue bonnets, from hot outside weather, to a night time swimming pool shoot, I almost felt like it was Goldielocks and the three bears… too hot, too cold, hopefully when she left she was just right…. Hehehehehe. I love that I can do this (adding my simple sense of humor in it to boot). We got some great images, that I know Kenzie and the fam will like… More images on the site, and click here for a short video from the session… Enjoy.

Lance is a senior at Runge HS. Runge is a town between here and Victoria, TX. He went to a local HS here in SA, but moved his senior year. From a senior class size of 700 to 26 means major adjustments, but Lance has seemed to handle the transition well. We photographed him in his tuxedo a few weeks ago, because of his HS prom being the next day. He came back yesterday and we finished the session. Lance is musically gifted, and wants to use his passions and talents to either teach music, or perform for others. Did I mention he loves to play Lacrosse? We finished up the session with his gear… The images turned out really cool, and we had a good time… More on the site. Click here to see a short video from the session…. Enjoy.

...good things come in small packages, well, Nicole certainly attains to that. Nicole is a senior at Churchill HS. She’s a joy to be around; bubbly, silly, well-grounded, and of course cute as a button (all 4'11" of her). Her smile grabs your attention and draws you into her cute and fun personality. I must say her family is one hard not to like as well. Anyway, Nicole picked out three outfits that seemed to fit her well. We started on the swing (even though it took a little longer than expected – remember we work slow!) and got some fantabulous images. We then went back into the studio to capture her in her cute black dress with the dream light. These are some images that truly stand out. She brought some of her shopping bags to help her express her deep desire to shop (typical girl, hehehehe). Did I mention her pink and black boa? Truly stunning and glamorous… We finished up with the car outside. Nicole was a bunch of fun to photograph and I think she had a great time (especially trying to come up with 5 adjectives to describe herself – 5 takes? C'mon ;) ) Nicole is truly, a beautiful young lady, inside and out. I know she’ll be a thriving influence in her career as an elementary school teacher… More on the site.

Evan is a senior at Johnson HS. He’s pretty simple, yet very intelligent. He plans on attending Texas A&M in the fall. His area of study is Engineering. We photographed his sister a few years ago, and she came with Evan to the session. We also photographed his family a few years ago (that's how they know us). Mom wasn’t picky, her specific request was, “As long as you get one with him smiling”… Well, we got some pretty cool shots of him. I think we captured his personality. The close-ups of him are our favorites, plus the vertical black and white image (see below) was my #1 fav. Evan and the clan seemed to have a good time, and the images turned out to our liking as well. See more on the site, and click here to see a short video from the session… Enjoy…

Lauren is a very athletic young lady from Floresville. Her nickname is "Bean Dip". She plays volleyball, basketball, and softball... Unfortunately, her HS athletic career was cut short a few weeks ago with a knee injury... She's definately a trooper... Hurt knee and all, she was game for anything. She had this out-of-this-world, peacock dress (with feathers and all)... so we started with this outfit. We played a little, then incorporated the peacock feathers... boy, did we have some fun. Her smile is perfect for her future profession, (yep, you guessed it, dentist)... Afterwards, she put on her fuscia, patterned dress and we went outside to a blooming peach tree... the pink flowers were almost as gorgeous as she was. Some of my favorite images came from this location.... We wrapped up the session with her black Hummer.... We waited for the sun to set and captured some really cool images... Lauren was a blast to work with, she is a fun, outgoing, and has a smile that knocks your socks off... Hope mom, g-ma, and Lauren like the images... we certainly do... More images on the site, and click here for a short video from the session... Enjoy...
