Parker | Rainy Day Senior Photos in Palo Duro Canyon

We got this photo session finished right in the nick of time. We were just finishing up when a monsoon (ok, not really - it was just a rainstorm) broke out in the canyon. I’m so glad we all arrived to the session about 15 minutes early! I’m also glad that Parker, who plays guitar, decided to bring his two guitars to his senior photo session. Often, taking pictures isn’t the most comfortable/fun thing for guys to do, but I think having an activity helps make it more fun :)

Olivia | Downtown Amarillo Senior Session

Gahhh….Olivia has such a pretty smile and we were blessed with the prettiest day for her senior photo session in Downtown Amarillo and then Wolflin. That’s what we call a win-win.

This girl is graduating high school early because she knows what she wants to do with her life! I don’t think I had that figured out until several years after high school. She wants to be a labor and delivery nurse and I applaud her because I think that would be one of the most difficult but rewarding jobs.

Shaylee | Amarillo High Senior Photos

Shaylee's senior photo session was a wonderful one to end my season before starting maternity leave. She's a total sweetheart and once she warmed up to the camera (and to my silliness) we had a lot of fun together. You can't tell by these photos but we were plagued by 30 mph winds during her photo session and she totally made it work with her positive attitude. Her awesome mom Staci was there to fix hair in between shots. Near the end of the session, we decided to embrace the wind and the beautiful Amarillo sunset.

Micah | Downtown Amarillo Texas Senior Photos

When your senior clients are 50 times cooler than you could ever hope to be. 

Micah is clearly that cool and equally as sweet. And I am in love with her style. We carefully planned out where we would go in downtown Amarillo based on her outfits and I was so happy when, on a whim, we stopped by one of my favorite spots that I never get to use. The gold, retro architecture seemed just her style and her eyes lit up when I told her about it (pictures below).

Jessica | Dalhart High School Senior Photos

It's senior photo season and I've had so much fun with my seniors this year! Jessica drove all the way from Dalhart, Texas on the prettiest of spring days to hang out with me for a couple of hours. We walked around downtown Amarillo while she wore her cap and grown and then we sped to Palo Duro Canyon to catch the sunset. This girl has style and a beautiful smile (the proof is in the pictures) but she also rocks those fierce expressions. I loved hanging out with her <3

Maecee | Palo Duro Canyon Senior Photos

Can we all just stop and admire this girl's eyes for a second? Gorgeous! She's a senior from Borger with a heart of gold. I always think I get to take photos of the best people and Maecee is one of those <3 Her whole family tagged along for the experience and I can tell that they are excited for her to graduate from high school and go on to do exciting things. I'm also so glad this session finally happened. Poor Maecee had to get rescheduled twice due to our crazy Amarillo, Texas winds but she ended up with the most gorgeous day.

Keegan | Palo Duro Canyon Senior Session

I'm always impressed by the teenagers that I come across in this town. Despite the constant negativity about young people, I have yet to photograph one who is nothing short of courteous and respectful. Keegan is definitely that type of senior. Even when I made him feel a little silly, he happily went along with everything. His friend, who came along for the shoot, asked me about my pregnancy and how it was going. At the end of the session, both boys shook my hand. It makes me sound old but I can see that their parents raised them right and it gives me a lot of hope.

Destiny | Tascosa High School Senior Session

Destiny can rock those fierce expressions, am I right? Sometimes I wonder if some of my seniors are secretly professional models. Destiny was one of those girls and she made my job super easy and fun. Not only is she gorgeous, but she's also sweet as can be!Destiny's mom tagged along for the session and I have to say, she was the most helpful spectator I have ever had for a shoot. She helped me give Destiny direction and her ideas for poses and expressions were spot on. So honestly I need to give her credit making Destiny look so good!

Madison | Palo Duro Canyon Senior Session

Madison is a bubbly and bright senior from Vega High School who I loved photographing in the middle of December on the most perfect day! You can tell that she's a ray of sunshine for everyone around her. I have no doubt that she'll be just as successful and happy when she attends college at OSU next year!

Belle | Palo Duro Canyon Head shots

Gosh, this girl is so pretty! She is graduating from West Texas A&M University this December so she did a graduation/head shot session with me. She needed some fresh head shots because she is leaving for Los Angeles after graduation where she is moving to go to film school and pursue a career in acting. She told me she wants to start out in commercials. I hope these pictures will help get her where she wants to go!

Logan | Downtown Amarillo Senior Pictures

So much pretty all in one session! I can't get over it. Logan and I started out battling the wind but it soon subsided and became a perfect Amarillo spring evening.  Logan is a breath of fresh air and she has so much style. My favorite of her senior pictures are from our time in the Wolflin neighborhood. Logan had the prettiest outfit and I'm totally jealous of her looooong, beautiful hair. The natural environment and the sun-shiny evening suited her perfectly.
