I met AC, a senior from The Colony High School, up in Frisco for our portrait session.  He wanted something a bit more urban, so we headed over to Frisco Square to get his images.  AC plays football and basketball, so he brought his jacket with him for some pictures.

We started out at the arches in Frisco, which is one of my favorite locations there!  I love the colors and the curved and straight lines.  And they worked perfectly with AC’s first outfit choice.

And I love this dramatic black and white –

From there, AC changed shirts and we walked away from the arches to the next spot.

And finally, we added his jacket for the last pictures.  AC did such a fantastic job at his session!

  • Courtney - The Colony High School has some awesome seniors this year!  You did a fantastic job of capturing some great senior pictures that this family can look back on as his time as a Colony Senior.  🙂ReplyCancel

I’ve realized I haven’t blogged many of the sweet family sessions I had last Fall, so they are coming soon!  I had this family back in November, and they were such a pleasure to work with.  Their little boy was absolutely adorable, down to his sweater with leather patches on the shoulders.  We held this session at a local park in Flower Mound, which has a field and nearby creek.  It was a great location to engage their little boy, and let him explore a little!  I always love capturing those little details that you don’t want to forget, particularly when they are so little and curious.

Madison

On a beautiful February day, we ventured down to Bishop Arts District in Dallas for Madison’s senior pictures.  We got stuck in some horrible traffic, and what should have taken 45 minutes took over an hour and a half.  But we made it!  We only had a short time there before we’d lose the light, so we were hustling around as best we could.

Madison is a bright young woman, who I look forward to working with whenever I get the chance.  She always rocks our sessions, giving me the perfect amount of joy and sass.  And it’s so fun catching up with her!  She was a student in my 5th grade class many years ago, and the daughter of a coworker and friend.  So getting to take her senior pictures was very special for me.

Bishop Arts District is a great location because there is such variety there.  There is a graffiti house with a swing, lots of cool murals, and a small enough street that I can get pictures in the middle of it.  It’s a great location for anyone wanting an urban or graffiti look!

Flower Mound Photography

Marcus High School senior Blake wanted some of his senior pictures out at Old Alton bridge, or “Goatman’s Bridge”.  The rest we took at Stone Creek Park.  Both are busy locations, but I love using them!  They have such character and are very special in our area.

Blake is into sports, particularly soccer and football, and also enjoys being involved in church.  He will be working and going to community college after he graduates, but then will move on to Texas A & M.  He will have a blast after high school, for sure!

I spend a lot of time taking pictures of other families, special moments, and celebrations.  But with my family, it’s easy to forget to pull out the camera – or, I am too busy taking pictures to enjoy the moment.  This year I decided I would embark on a Project 365.  If you don’t know what that means, it’s a term used for taking one picture each day throughout the year.  I’m loosely following this, because some days I just don’t remember to pick up my camera or I am sick.  I am making it easier on myself by also taking iPhone pictures, when I don’t have my big camera with me.  The pictures are for myself and my family, not necessarily to share with everyone else.

Why a Project 365?

I particularly wanted to embark on this project in 2017 because we are due with our second baby in July.  Our son is now 3 (and a half, if I’m honest), and his personality is just skyrocketing!  I want to capture these moments that we have, and remember the crazy things that he does.  I also want to make sure I have photographs of him with his baby brother or sister.  We sit down with our son right now and look through baby pictures of him, and he loves seeing what he was doing and how different or similar it is to now.  I can’t wait to sit down with both kids in the future and look back at these pictures!

Can Anyone Do This?

Any equipment will work for a Project 365!  On a professional camera, regular point and shoot, or even just your phone.  The important part is taking the pictures!  I know moms, especially, are pretty good at taking pictures of their kids with their phones.  But those pictures are just snapshots, there isn’t a specific purpose to them, and often they just stay on the phone forever (or worse, get lost when the phone crashes!).  Be more deliberate with what you take pictures of.  What do you want to remember 5, 10, or 15 years from now?  I will post examples of memories I have captured below.  I want to remember how his little hands looked when they held his train, or how much he loved his stuffed dog, “Monkey”.

Isn’t It Too Late to Start a Project 365?

No, it’s not! This is for YOU, so start it anytime!  Now!  But don’t forget; those pictures shouldn’t stay on your computer or phone forever.  Print them out!  Make a photo book, or print 4 x 6s.  Most of all, have a way to share them years from now.  Good luck, and I’d love to see some pictures that you have captured!
