This is an extra special year for me as a High School Senior Photographer…this year I have a daughter that is a senior!!
First stop… MAKEUP! I can not say enough great things about my MUA of choice, Melissa Diaz – Pearls of Beauty.
She has such a gift and creates a beautiful and flawless makeup application that will withstand even the hottest Texas day! She really knows how to bring out your natural beauty and still have you look like YOU! Which is why she continues to be my “Go to gal” for all my clients…and of course MY own daughter!
After she was ready we headed to Big D and shot in Highland Park and also Bishop Arts District… then we headed back to our area for some sunflower photos! Here are some of Natalie’s faves from the session. And of course we will be doing ANOTHER session when we head to sunny LA and Palm Springs this month because Natalie was one of my THREE finalists for the Seniors Ignite National Model Contest! I will be taking my two finalists, Natalie and Ashtyn, and also my WINNER Austin for this amazing opportunity.
But for now…here are Natalie’s faves…
I have admired these beautiful colorful steps in Highland Park for YEARS… just waiting for the perfect time to shoot there! Natalie’s fave color is yellow so I got in touch with the super talented Kristen at M.I.N.K. to help me find the perfect outfit. Kristen is amazing at finding the perfect clothes for your photo session!! and they can be delivered right to your door.
We just loved the fun playfulness of this mural in the Bishop Arts District and she had the perfect lavender shirt from FREE PEOPLE to wear!
OK and how fun is this turquoise wall! This was on my radar for a while as well and I just knew Natalie’s orange/red sweater would be the perfect pop of color at this spot. This was Natalie’s fave look from the session! Can you say high pony tail for the win?
And then we rushed back to Keller for some photos in the sunflowers!!!
This was a MUST DO as I have a photo of Natalie from when she was little in the sunflowers and wanted to recreate now… sniff. I’m not crying…your crying… sniff
So what does the PHOTOGRAPHER order… I had Natalie select her 30 favorite images from the session to put in a beautiful 5×7 Custom Image box… the images come mounted and look beautiful in the box. Such an awesome keepsake!
And of course I had to order MY fave image from the session in a 16×24 Print Wrap…
Once we have our session in Palm Springs I plan on ordering one of my Signature Albums with her fave images! Man…I am going to miss this girl! Oh… and if you are booking a Senior Session with me in the near future you just may meet Natalie…she is also my amazing photo assistant in the summer! Even at 5’3 this girl is a ninja with my huge reflector!
Let's be social shall we?
