Say Hello to Dallas! Dallas is one of our 2018 Spokesmodel Members. He’s mysterious, and quiet, and well… he’s really stinkin funny. I was lucky enough to photograph his sister’s senior pictures and I’m really excited that he is on the Spokesmodel Team this year.
Dallas has a look all his own and it absolutely suits who he is as a person and an artist. Dallas has dreams to be a music producer… FUN FACT: He already has a couple of deals going.
Dallas will graduate from Centennial High School, Burleson Texas in 2019 – and I absolutely can’t wait to shoot more with him over the coming year.
Let me introduce to one of our 2018 Spokesmodel Members, Triniti. She is one of our underclassman for this years team – she will graduate Burleson High School in 2019. She’s just gorgeous and has the sweetest soul to match it.
One of the things that I ask all of my Spokesmodels is what their dreams are when they grow up. Well, she just completely blew me out of the water. Triniti has plans to attend Harvard Medical School and become a pediatric oncologist. Whoah!! Talk about a girl with a plan and on a mission. I have absolutely no doubt at all that she will achieve this and so much more.
Not only is she beautiful, and has big dreams… she’s very active. Triniti is in the band, colorguard as well as NHS.
I absolutely cannot wait until we shoot some more together. Ms. Triniti – you are remarkable!
Since the very first day of high school, you’ve envisioned graduation. The cap and gown, the pictures, the excitement and of course, the absolute PERFECT outfit.
To make sure you look absolutely perfect on the big day, here are some tips to keep in mind:
When picking a dress, keep in mind what color you cap and gown are, matching color schemes are always super put together and look fabulous.
Another dress tip is to make sure your dress is the right length: not too short and not too long. You want to be comfortable and making sure your dress fits just right is a must!
When it comes to shoes, you can go with flats or heels. I love, love, love a good pair of wedges with a cute dress and graduation is the perfect occasion to bust out the perfect wedges. Just like making sure your dress is the right length, make sure your heels are the right height. We have all seen those embarrassing videos of some girl wearing WAY too tall of heels and tripping and you do not want that to be you. High school was embarrassing enough, let’s not make graduation a funny story to tell over Thanksgiving dinner for the years to follow.
No matter what, graduation is going to be a day you will remember for the rest of your life. Just to boost your confidence and rock it when you grab that diploma, find the outfit that makes you feel AMAZING!!
What are you going to be wearing for Graduation?
Family Photography Sessions are always refreshing to me. I typically don’t shoot a lot of them during the year, a lot of families wait until the Fall. However, over the last year I’ve been pulled to document families in a very different way. A normal family session is a lot sit there and smile, Mom is panicking because the kids aren’t being perfect. Someone got a grass stain running from the car to me. Dad isn’t too happy to be there… and the kids, well, the kids just want whatever bribe was offered to them on the car ride to where we are meeting. Let me give you a different perspective on family pictures. Allow me to document your family, like you’ve never had done before.
If you have followed along with me for very long, you know that I strive to give you more than just “sit and smile” pictures. I want to capture the laughter (and yes even the tears). I want to document the missing teeth. I want to show you how beautiful your family is in it’s imperfect state. Let’s be real.. those family photos where everyone is standing just perfect and smiling perfect… that is NOT who your family is. If it is… I admire you and would love to know how you do it. For the rest of us… our lives are chaotic, frantic, stressful… but at the end of the day – it’s the little snuggles, the love you feel as your little ones crawl into your lap… these are the things that are important and have meaning. These are the things I want to remember years down the road.
So, let me introduce you to Life Inspired Sessions. We will talk in depth before your session about what makes your family awesome. We will dig into what your kids like at this exact moment in time. We will pick the perfect location, and plan fun activities and things to do together. We will customize this session JUST FOR YOUR FAMILY.
Let me tell your story with your very own Life Inspired Session.

We get it! Spring is a hard season to dress for. It’s not winter anymore, but it’s not quite summer either. It’s easy to skip this “in-between” season and dress to either extreme but we are here to remind you to embrace the spring trends!
One of the best ways to beat the changing weather throughout the day is to stick to light layers. Flannels are perfect because they can be worn as a cardigan in the cold morning hours, but can be tied around the waist as it gets warmer.
This one might be harder to accept but it’s time to put those UGGs away! Transition slowly from ankle booties to sandals as the weather allows it. There are so many styles and colors to choose from that will compliment your outfit perfectly. Be sure to roll up the ends of your jeans to show off those cute new shoes (stylists recommend about 1-2” between your hem and yourshoes in the spring and summer).
Let’s not forget about those nails! It’s time to deter from those dark reds and purples and bring out the bright yellows and pinks to make your hands spring ready! If color is not your thing, stick to more whiter colors on the neutral scale, as opposed to the black.
Don’t break out the short shorts and flip flops just yet. Remember you can still be cute and comfortable, even in the spring.
