Another Fall semester is here which means I have a brand new class of seniors to photograph. Kicking off (quite literally) my Senior Sessions this year was the beautiful Yuki. We met up on campus at Rice University, one of my favorite place's to shoot, and we instantly clicked. After snapping a few traditional portrait shots, Yuki traded her wedge heels for her beloved pointe shoes.
This weekend Bay Area Houston Ballet & Theatre will be opening their season with a mixed repertoire production, Next Giant Leap. In honor of their kick off performance, I'm excited to share images from their 2019-2020 Season Portrait Session!
"Always timid, never took a chance
Then I felt his magic
And my heart began to dance."
This year, 2019, marks the 10 year anniversary of two very important events for me. May 16th, 2009 marked the birth of Caitlin Cannon Photography and on June 3, 2009, on the way home from a photoshoot I was involved in a tragic car accident, which took the life of my dear friend Makenzie. My photography anniversary arrived this year and my life was so completely chaotic that I didn't even get a chance to celebrate. I was teaching non stop, caught up in client shoots, and getting ready for my first performing contract in 6 years! June arrived and I was immersed in The Producers at Casa Manana.
At the start of the summer I had the great opportunity of performing in Casa Manana Theatre's production of The Producer's, under the brilliant direction of this gorgeous woman, Courtney Young. From Day 1 she was our fearless leader, her amazing talent only to be matched by incredible loving heart. One morning before rehearsal I was tickled pink to snag some one on one time with her for an Artistic Portrait Session. In true Courtney fashion she had a clear vision for the shoot- she wanted a bright yellow wall to create a warm, inviting feel. We had so much fun exploring a fun block in Downtown Fort Worth and I was honored to capture her essence and spirit. Whether its on stage or behind the camera, I love working with Courtney! Till next time :)

Four years ago I had the pleasure of photographing portraits of beautiful Sophie. With graduation just around the corner it was time for session with this gorgeous girl! For Sophie's Senior Portraits we took to the always beautiful (and busy!) Hermann Park. No matter what she does whether its dancing, modeling, or just being your average teenager, Sophie has a way of always doing things with grace, poise, and a twinkle in her eye. I have loved watching her grow up and can't wait to see where life takes her!!
