February is upon us, and love is in the air. Everywhere we turn we see hearts, flowers, and chocolates. But do we see our love documented in current portraits? Or do we have to reach back through the years to that engagement photo, or wedding album? Of course we cherish those memories of days when our love was young, but what about now?
Years of marriage and togetherness have deepened our love, given us a new definition of romance, and probably a very different idea of what, “Happily Every After,” truly looks like.
Had such a great time capturing these photos in a field near Frisco. So cool that this week I met the Miller’s newborn baby girl, Sanaa Elise, and did portraits of her. She joins big brother Cameron to complete the family. The Miller’s ordered a really cool framed collage of these images and it turned out AMAZING! Next we are going to do a gorgeous, custom album mixing some of the maternity and newborn photos. Can’t wait to see the finished products!
We recently photographed Kendall for her senior photos. She was lots of fun and the results were stunning. She isn’t a “country” girl, so we decided to do part of the shoot near downtown Dallas. Kendall has a great smile but can pull off the more serious poses too. Her favorite activity in her spare time is watching Netflix. She has a chocolate lab named Cocoa Bean, a whippet named Jasper and a german shepherd named Charlie. Her favorite season is FALL and a place she would love to visit is Spain.
Every year we are asked the same question…..”What do we wear for our portraits this year?” It’s a great question because poor planning/clothing can pretty much destroy an otherwise awesome photo. Families are units of individual people so dressing in all exact matching clothing is not ideal. NEITHER IS EVERYONE WEARING THEIR FAVORITE OUTFIT! Color harmony is super important. If your goal is to have something beautiful to put on your wall at home, you should consider dressing is a color palette that works well with the decor you have. We have a page dedicated to clothing in family photos. Here is the link: https://www.pinterest.com/iimagesphotog/clothing-suggestions-for-family-portraits/
I especially love this chart as a reference for colors that look great together.
Sarah is one of our Class of 2017 models from Liberty High School in Frisco. She is very photogenic and easy to work with. I know her senior year is going to be amazing!
Sarah’s favorite subject is Science and in her spare time she loves to dance and watch Netflix. She has two dogs, a lab named Roxie and a mutt named Ozzy.
The first time I met Hana in person was at a shoot in the studio for our high school model team. I knew in an instant she was special. Hana is completely natural in front of the camera. She has a super sweet personality and is very talented. She plans on possibly a career in fashion. There are so many amazing photos of her – here are just a few….
A few facts about Hana:

Her pet’s name is Lola and she is a Yorkie!
In the spotlight today is Plano West senior, Hallie. Hallie is a member of our model team. Her senior session was done in June before things really heated up.
Hallie’s Mom, Sondra, and I are from the same small Oklahoma town – Duncan, OK. I have done several kids from Duncan through the years and it is always a honor for me to get to work with people from my hometown.
Get to know Hallie –
Favorite thing to do in her spare time is SING. Her favorite musical artist is John Mayer. She loves the bible verse, “Come to me, all those who are weary, and I will give you rest. ” Matthew 11:28
What a great kid with a bright future and so photogenic! Here are just a few of the images from her session.
We had a great time photographing the first girls from the Class of 2017 in a vintage 1940’s style of photography. Each model was easy to work with and so beautiful. Can’t wait to photograph them individually this summer for their senior portrait sessions! We will be posting some of their images throughout the summer and I know they will be awesome so stay tuned!
Schools represented by our models this year include Prosper HS, Plano West HS, Prestonwood Christian Academy, Frisco Wakeland, Frisco Lonestar, McKinney Boyd and Allen HS.
Abby is from a family of GIRLS (and her Dad, of course) and I have been taking her pictures for many years. Her eyes are so blue and they literally sparkle. She attends McKinney Christian Academy and loves to draw, sing and run. Her favorite subject is Math. Her pet peeve is when people show off – I agree! She loves summer and would love to visit Australia. Abby’s favorite quote is “The pain you feel cannot compare to the joy that is to come.” Now that is something to remember!
