Nicole was one of the first of the Class of 2021 that we photographed this year. If the experience for both her and us is any indication of what’s in store for the year, things are going to be absolutely amazing. Nicole seems like an “old soul” with an outgoing, compassionate and tenacious spirit. She was absolutely a delight to work with and we are in love with her casual, beautiful results. Check out a few pics from her session…..
Nicole’s future plans are to attend college, obtain a Master’s in athletic training and Doctorate in physical therapy. Her ultimate goal is to become a trainer/physical therapist in the NFL.
It hasn’t been easy going into a senior year with a pandemic and uncertainty everywhere but Nicole says that the whole experience has “Taught me to look at the positives in a bad situation.”
Good Luck Nicole. You make the future seem as though we are all in good hands!
Haley certainly lights up the camera! She is a beautiful, mature girl who is passionate, caring and kind. More than anyone else in the world, she is inspired by her parents because they are “great people!” Her parents have raised an awesome young women with a bright future ahead. She is undecided on her career path but has chosen to attend The University of Oklahoma next fall. She is going to love cheering on the Sooners and settling into her new life in Norman.
Haley’s favorite thing to do is spend time with her friends and family AND her fur babies which include her lab Boomer, and chihuahua Emma. She also has two rag doll cats named Max and Juliet. Haley also has a job at a local restaurant AND is president of the student council at school.
A bible verse that Haley loves is “Let all you do be done with love.” 1 Corinthians 16:14
We loved photographing and getting to know Haley……Boomer Sooner!
I’ve been photographing Kierstin and her sisters for a VERY long time. It has been fun watching them grow into beautiful young women. She is the FIRST of the girls to be a senior and is certainly setting the bar high!
Kierstin has two dogs named Baylor and Raider. The names come from her parents’ alma maters – Baylor (Dad) and Texas Tech (Mom). Maybe one day she will have a dog of her own and name it “Cowboy” because her future plans are to attend either Texas Tech or Oklahoma State and major in public relations/marketing/advertising.
“Start each day with a grateful heart.” Those words inspire Kierstin.
Kierstin is a ray of sunshine and she loves murals so the pic above is so PERFECT! She also loves music by Harry Styles and working at Bahama Bucks where she is a shift lead.
WOW! Meagan is a multi-talented, sweet and beautiful young woman. She was tons of fun to photograph and her pics are truly special!
Meagan is not only a gorgeous, brown-eyed stunner, she is funny and athletic! She was a regional finalist in track and a high school cheerleader. In addition, she loves to sing and play the guitar. Her favorite musical artist is Kacey Musgraves.
Meagan’s future looks bright as her plans include studying food science/communications at Baylor University. She leans on this verse to guide the way: “For I know the plans I have for you, plans to prosper you and not harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Jeremiah 29:11
Meet HANNAH, Senior Class of 2020 at McKinney Christian Academy. Her favorite high school tradition was the mum and garter exchange and homecoming game. A fun high school memory was watching “The Great Gatsby” in English class.
Hannah spends LOTS of her time at the gym training for gymnastics. It is rare to see someone stick with a sport that demands so much time and effort as gymnastics through high school! AWESOME
Hannah is truly one of the sweetest, most down to earth seniors that I have had the pleasure of photographing. She is the last graduate of a long line of beautiful sisters. I know her family is proud of the wonderful person she is!
Alaia’s name is perfect for her because she is truly a one of kind girl. She describes her style as “grungy, retro” and she seems to be a person that doesn’t really care what others are doing – she has her own idea of what she likes and formulates her own opinions and tastes. It’s really fun to photograph someone like Alaia who is confident and has an interesting, artsy side.
Her friends would describe her as “dedicated, ambitious, and passionate.” Having those qualities = a recipe for success! Someday she would like to have her undergrad degree in English and go on to become a corporate lawyer. PERFECT! Teens like Alaia are our future. Doesn’t that make you feel like we are in good hands?
Some of Alaia’s favs include The Beatles – (musical artist) and Baby Driver (movie). Her favorite ways to spend free time are listening to music, reading and writing.
This beautiful soul is ultra photogenic as you see!! Here’s a sampling of some of her senior pics……
Ashley is a natural beauty inside and out! There are SO many awesome pictures of her it was hard to narrow them down. Ashley has an easy going personality and is lots of fun to be around.
In her free time, you might find her at home listening to Luke Combs or chasing around her golden retriever, Daisy. One of her favorite things to do is work out at the CrossFit. Anyone that stays dedicated to CrossFit is a very disciplined person!
She is inspired by her Dad because of his work ethic and drive. He gives her motivation to work hard and go after her goals which include studying nutritional science at Baylor. Ashley’s brother, Derek, is currently a Baylor student and the whole family are fans of the Bears. In addition, they love to cheer on the Dallas Stars. We are cheering for Ashley as she completes high school and moves into the next phase of life in Waco.
Say Hello to Miss Ashley Cooley- Senior Model 2019
As a varsity cheerleader at Wakeland, Ashley’s favorite memories of high school have been cheering under the Friday night lights of Texas Football. She loves the themed student sections at football games!

Ashley draws inspiration from her mom and sister, and finds encouragement and strength in Isaiah 41:10- Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.
Ashley is doing wonderful things in this world. She plans to attend Baylor or Clemson in the fall, and pursue a degree in nursing.
