Hannah was a Hoot....

Hannah came to us from RHS. She was so much fun to work with. Her personality is magnetic. She's positive, encouraging, sincere, and out-going. She plans to attend Samford University next year. Her plans for the future are to work with Young Life and eventually become a missionary, maybe in Africa. I have no doubt that Hannah can achieve anything she sets her heart and mind on. I will have to say, that by the end of the session most seniors are worn out, but not Hannah. Her smile was still kicking in and laughing. For her video (part of the senior experience) we started when it was bright outside, but due to a happening out of our control, we didn't finish until it was dark outside. When you watch it, you'll think, "wow, it got dark fast". Not really, we just had to wait in between happenings. It was funny. Hannah, you are a bundle of joy, and I now know why you were crowned Miss Cibolo. My wish for you is to continue your journey seeking Truth, and sharing the gift of you with everyone that comes across your path. There's a poem by Robert Frost titled "Nothing Gold Can Stay", I think he's wrong. Stay Gold!!! You are such a blessing. You can see more of her here or on our site.

Wrestling with Beauty....

Nicole comes to us from Johnson HS. Believe it or not, she's on the wrestling team. A 5'9" wrestling beauty. Nicole wants to become a scientist and research cancer. Someday hoping to discover a cure or at least a remedy that would allow people to live through it. The thing about Nicole I liked was her child-like outlook (this in no way is a bad thing). She's like a little girl in a big girl's body. That innocence is something we should all treasure. Her dad was teasing her the entire session. It was pretty funny watching him get under her skin. Anyway, the session turned out fine, and the dog got to get out of his house for awhile and visit the country. Nicole, we wish you the best in life, and God-willing, you reach your goals in helping others. You can see more of her here, or visit our site here.

The Book Thief....

Miss Ashley came to us from Randolph HS. She is a fun, extremely imaginative, and down-to-earth young lady. She loves to read. Like her mom's passion for reading, give her a good book and she'll disappear for a while. Ashley was so funny. We were taking the Samurai images, and Ashley was grunting trying to swing the sword... I couldn't stop laughing. She's is so much fun. Then when she came out in her Harry Potter outfit, of course I know nothing about this series, she couldn't believe I've never seen it. Go figure... The funny story from this session was her mom's description of a Shih Shih dog and the Roku castle in Okinawa. We all had a good time and I think she'll like her portraits.... Ashley you are an incredible young lady. We hope you learn to use your God-given talents to make a difference in this world. At least you'll have plenty of books to read your children someday.... You can see and read more about her here or on our website.

Miss V - 5 x's the fun

Victoria comes to us from Clemens HS. She is the track team manager at her school. Her future plans are to attend Tarleton State and major in Biochemistry. She wants to eventually become a pediatrician. Victoria is all about fun. Her laugh is contagious and her smile is bigger than life. Her greatest assets are her optimism and her willingness to serve. Our session was a lot of fun. The best part was when she wore her blue dress. I don't remember how many attempts we had to get the cap and gown walking away image, but it was hilarious trying to get the shot. Them when she got her balloons, the party started..... Victoria, we wish you the best in life, and I know as long as you pursue your dreams and cling to the Truth, you will make an impact in many people's lives. You can see more of her here, or on our website here.

Everything is Bigger in Texas...

CJ comes to us from Marion HS. The title says it all. CJ has the biggest truck I've ever seen driven by a high-school-age driver. It's tricked out, and believe it or not, it gets 25 mpg (I couldn't believe it either). CJ loves hunting, golf, and baseball. He plans on attending college and eventually working with his dad (owns a business). CJ was a subtle reminder of one of my sons. He loves hunting, bow and rifle. He's also a golfer, missed state by one place. I teased him with the idea of inventing a game that allows you to swing a club and hunt at the same time. Kill two birds with one stone, or ball or projectile object (my imagination goes wild). CJ seems to have a good head on his shoulders. I think whatever he sets his mind to, he'll accomplish it. You can see more of him here or on our website.
