This summer I had the opportunity of meeting Jessica, a soon-to-be college graduate from Stephen F. Austin University. From the moment our session began I felt us instantly click! Though we had only JUST met, I knew exactly what Jessica's vibe was and how to capture it through my lens! I so enjoyed exploring 1776 Park in Friendswood, TX for the first time. The location was Jessica's choice as she loved it's untamed, wild nature which certainly translated into the feel of the session. Among some fun artistic portraits, we also captured some professional headshots that she can use as she heads into her career in business! From her many gorgeous hair flips to her love for Topochico (and including it in her images) this session was pure JOY! Congrats Jessica on your upcoming graduation- go show the world what you're made of!

What a journey it has been to watch Kennedy grow up. From a very young age, he showed such an eagerness to excel and talent to boot! I have great memories through the years of performing along side him in children's theatre, being his tap teacher, and cheering him on. One of our first shows together was Seussical, he played Jojo and I the Cat in the Hat! For the show's promotional stills we posed at Kemah Boardwalk and had a marvelous time riding rides and being silly! While planning his Senior Portaits, it seemed only fitting to return to the boardwalk. Kennedy, I wish you all the best as you continue to grow in your love and ability for the arts. The Rock is fortune to have you and I know with your hard work and determination, life will take you far.

Can't believe the little girl I once knew as blossomed and bloomed into this beautiful ballerina! Audrey is one of the sweetest girls I know and we had such a fun time photographing her Senior Portraits. Over the years I've had the pleasure of watching Audrey perform with Bay Area Houston Ballet & Theatre and I'm so impressed with her ability to breath her beautiful personality into any role. She is graceful, kind, and charming. I can't wait to see where life takes this wonderful young lady! Cheers to the future, Ms. Audrey!

I've watched Annalise grow from a tiny little dancer to a tall elegant young woman. I've always loved watching her dance but this year she has really proven herself to be a true star on stage. Watching her perform the Sugar Plum Pas de Deux in the Nutcracker this past December was inspiring! She has grown so much in her dance ability, always caring herself with elegance and grace and I can't wait to see where her talents and abilities take her in life. Good luck at SMU next year, sweet Annalise!

I've had the great pleasure of watching Macey grow up through the years and I'm so proud of the young woman she's become. Going into her session I asked her if there was anything specific she wanted in her portraits and she simply said, "Warm Light" and mother nature must have been listening. We were blessed with gorgeous weather and Macey shined in each shot! Upon graduation Macey will be headed out to Chicago where she will join the Hubbard Street Dance's Professional Training Program- so proud and excited for her. Great things headed your way, Macey... Go show the world what you're made of!
