Class of 2016: Alyssa [Anna TX Senior Portrait Photography]

The first word that comes to mind when I think of this senior is spunk. And she’s got plenty of it. She is feisty, funny, goofy, and did I mention BEAUTIFUL??? Well, she is all of these things, and much, much more. We had a great time walking around last Tuesday on the streets of historical downtown McKinney. It was the last official day of summer and I think those golden rays of sunshine were pouring down just for us. I hope you love your pictures Alyssa! I had a great time goofing around with you and your momma and can’t wait until our spring session!

Class of 2016: Ellie [Van Alstyne Senior Portrait Photography]

This girl is, in a word: stunning. I had never met her before today’s shoot, but I knew– the second she got out of her car– this shoot was going to be an easy one. I mean, seriously, how could it not have been? She’s a beauty for sure, but even more than that she was down for whatever and took direction so well. Sit there, smile here, look that way, HAPPY EYES! She took all my directions without batting an eye and didn’t even make fun of me and all the crazy, silly things I say while taking pictures! Haha! And as much as I appreciate that, I appreciate even more that she trusted me and my abilities to document this huge milestone in her life. Ellie, I hope you enjoy these pictures, and of course, your senior year, too. Can’t wait until our next session this spring!

Class of 2016: Autumn & Jordan [Anna, TX Senior Portrait Photography]

This shoot began in downtown Van Alstyne at a quaint little cupcake shop called Sweet Olivia’s. My only regret from this shoot was that we got there just as the cupcake shop was closing up for the day. Those cupcakes looked amazing! But these two beauties more than made up for that cupcake with their sweetness and charm. They both swore that they’d never had their picture “really” taken before, but I’m not sure I believe them. They were just too good! Naturals, I tell you! Once we finished up on the streets of VA we decided to bring it back home to Anna and finish up the shoot at Natural Springs Park, and I am SO glad we did. The sun was beginning to set and that golden light just enveloped us and gave us all a big bear hug. It was a great end to an even greater day. Autumn and Jordan, I hope you both enjoy your sneak peek! I am so honored to have taken them! Enjoy the rest of your senior year!

Nikita+Saurabh [Anna, TX Engagement Photography]

I am so glad to have met these two beautiful people earlier this year at an Easter event. I feel like their beauty and love for each other really shine’s through in these pictures we took at Klyde Warren Park and I am so blessed that they chose me to be their photographer. I can’t remember the last shoot where I laughed this much while bossing around two amazing people. It was a good time for sure. I hope you love your engagement photos Nikita and Saurabh! Thank you again for asking me to take them!

Just for fun… [Anna, TX Children’s Portrait Photography]

I am so relieved that my little gal is finally letting me take her picture– and she even smiles…sometimes. In the past, as soon as she saw me with my camera she would either run in the opposite direction, or holler at me to stop taking her picture. So this was huge. Oh and don’t even get me started on how excited I am that she allowed me to put her in something with ruffles, haha! This girl has a mind of her own and I wouldn’t have it any other way.

But don’t get me wrong, this tomboy loves nothing more than getting down and dirty, too. And this is where you will usually find her outside: playing in the dirt.
