Lego Lad....

Brenden came to us from New Braunfels HS. He's a gamer through and through. He also loves Legos, playing his instrument, and any thing to do with computers. He's quiet, imaginative, friendly, smart, and funny. He wants to be a computer programmer in life. I see him fitting right in with that profession. Brenden was a great sport. His mom wanted us to create his senior portraits for a while. She saw images we did from a senior a few years ago and decided we were the "chosen ones" for Brenden's special portraits. My jokes didn't seem to have the normal effect on Brenden (every one usually laughs hysterically) but I did find the funny phrase for him, "Guy on Buffalo". Between chatting about Mass Effect, and getting to see some of his Lego creations, we had a fun time, and created some amazing images of him. Hopefully, they like 'em. Here's more about Brenden:

After graduation: Study Computer Programming in College
A Dinner Guest of his choice: Lewis & Simon - The Yogcast, Seran - Mass Effect, & Jodie - Beyond Two Souls
One Wish: Travel through Time
One thing to do to Impact the World: Save the World from senient machines
Favorite Song: "Let Her Go" by Passenger, "Demons" by Imagine Dragons, & "10,000 Reasons" by Matt Redmond
Favorite Quote: "You exist because we allow it and you will end because we demand it" - Harbinger - Mass Effect

Here are some more images of him on our site, and click here to see a short video from the session. Brenden, may your imagination and computer skills help make this world a better place. Enjoy....

Miss Katelyn...

will be our CK 2014-15 Senior rep at Clemens HS next year. We've known her since she was a wee-little one. If you met her parents you'd be asking yourself, "where's the beautiful red hair from?". You'll have to ask her, 100% natural. They say redheads have a fiery temper, Katelyn puts this myth to rest. She the sweetest, most loving teenager you'll ever meet (I guess I'm a little biased). Anyway, I was searching on the internet for something and came across a quote perfect for her. So Katelyn, here goes, "Your hair is beautiful, like the sun shining on BeyoncĂ©’s smile". The image below is taken next door to us. Our neighbor has this pear tree that blooms beautiful white flowers every Spring. It usually doesn't last long, so I knew we had to photograph it. The only problem was a cold front came in. Well, with the magic of PS, I got the shot I wanted... You'll be seeing more of her in the future, for sure....

Mr. Football....

Hunter will be graduating from Johnson HS this Spring. He's the quarterback on the state semi-finalist football team. He's ranked in the top 10% of his graduating class. And did I mention he actually likes his parents (an anomaly for the teenage years). Hunter's mom was so excited for us to capture His personality in his portraits. She said that she's been waiting for Hunter to become a senior so we could create his portraits. It's good to know that our work is appreciated and held in high esteem. Anyway, Hunter is all about football. He plans on playing in college (Wreck 'em Tech) where he also wants to study engineering. The one thing that stood out to me about him, was his maturity and outlook on life. He's was grateful for his parents, and takes his studies very seriously. I asked him what advice he would give himself if he could go back and be a Freshman again. He told us to take your studies seriously. My son was listening, so hopefully it didn't fall on deaf ears. We had a fun time, and I must say, Hunter's mom is a ball of energy, so much so I couldn't believe what she did on the trampoline. Here's more about Hunter:

After graduation: Study Engineering and play football in College
A Dinner Guest of his choice: Johnny Manziel
One Wish: Free food for life
One thing to do to Impact the World: Eliminate Bullying
Favorite Song: "Mud on the Tires" by Brad Paisley
Favorite Quote: Philippians 4:13 "I can do all things through Christ Who gives me strength"

Here are some more images of him on our site, and click here to see a short video from the session. Hunter, you are a very respectful young man. Thanks for being the leader and role model you are. Enjoy....
