These pictures make me giggle. He’s handsome isn’t he? And goofy. SERIOUSLY goofy. Like, he had me cracking up his entire shoot. That is what I will remember most about Dalton, as I also had the pleasure of being his teacher this year. I will remember his goofiness. His ability to make just about anyone laugh, shake their head, and stare at him in awe of his goofiness. You’re one of a kind Dalton and I will miss seeing your silly face and crazy-cool hair every day. You’d better come back and see me every now and again! Hope you love your pictures!
And here is another one of my students that I had the privelege of photographing during their senior year. Sweet Isaac. Oh, how I will miss his quiet, LOUD spirit. That may not make sense, but if you know Isaac then you will know what I mean. He is one of those people whose presence is louder than any words he could say. He is just awesome and such a great kid. And I will miss him. Best of luck in all your endeavors Isaac! Thanks again for asking me to hang with you and take these! 😀
Downtown McKinney is always one of my favorite places to shoot because of the variety of settings and backdrops it provides for my subject. It has greenery, funky brick walls, graffiti– it has it all. Which is why I was so excited when this special senior chose it as the location for her photos. She really just kind of let me do my thing, which is sometimes scary, because at times it can be helpful to have an idea of exactly what the senior is looking for, or what they want their pictures to look like. But Morgan was so laid back and open to everything I suggested. I think this session ended up running about two hours long, even though we initially planned for an hour. But that is what happens when you’re having fun…time flies! And that is exactly what it did. We laughed and smiled until our cheeks hurt and I think a great time was had by all. Now, as I’m sitting her editing Morgan’s pictures, I am blown away by her beauty, the twinkle in her eyes, and her kind spirit that seriously oozes out of every one of her pictures. Morgan, I hope you love your senior portraits as much as I did taking them. I am so blessed that you asked me to take them, and will treasure that Tuesday for a long, long time. I will miss seeing your smiling face this next year as you leave to begin your next journey at Texas Tech, but I cannot wait to see what the future has in store for you. Keep living and loving!
This was one of the most fun portrait sessions I’ve had in a while. I am lucky enough to also be Maddie’s English teacher and I am so blessed to have had the opportunity to take her senior portraits as well. Maddie is one of the most positive, smiley kids I know, and I feel like that definitely comes across in her pictures. In fact, one of her concerns before the shoot was that she could ONLY be smiley and wasn’t capable of taking any “serious-face” pictures. I told her not to worry, that we’d give it a shot and see what happens. And you guys! It was magic! Maddie really can do it all.
On another note…Maddie, I hope you love your senior portraits almost as much as you love your Whataburger! Haha! Enjoy your last semester of high school! 😀 And thanks for trusting me to document this amazing milestone!
