We took Claire’s senior pictures at one of my favorite locations, Stone Creek Park in Flower Mound, Texas, I love this spot as it is always a little different. The water levels are always changing and it gives it a different appearance each time. It is one of the few water locations I know of that I am not worried about snakes. It is a very popular location which keeps the snakes away. We did several outfits in the water and then when it got to dark we move to the lawn area. She worn a dress from my collection, that I thought would look lovely in the setting. The rocks can be very slippery and Claire found one, she slipped and fell,. She didn’t hurt herself or get her hair or makeup wet, but the bottom of the dress was pretty wet. I told her since it was wet she had to options to stay where she was and sit in the water with the dress one or change. Her eyes lit up and was all for the sitting in the water. I applaud her because I know that water was cold. I had rubber boots on and I could feel the coldness as i stood in the water.
Caitlyn provided me with plenty of laughs during her session, her fun personality gave me plenty of "bloopers" for the day as well as the laughs. Her mom would say, that is so her! Don;t get me wrong, the girl also knows how to work the camera! We started her senior portrait session where she keeps her horse, Winston. A tall chestnut Off the Track Thoroughbred (OTTB) who also has a personality to match his owner. Together they compete in local Hunter-Jumper shows. We gave Winston a break from "modeling" and headed to historic downtown McKinney for a second location. We then later returned tothe stables Princetonwhere we did some dramaticdusk images with Winston & Caitlyn.
I did Emily's family portraits several years ago and was honored that they had me bad to photograph her senior pictures. I loved all the outfits that she had chosen for her session and Sheila with Horse Show Makeup Artist did her hair and makeup. Emily agreed to do a early morning session and the light was fantastic. Much of the session was done at their neighbors by beautiful stock tank and in their backyard by a wonderful natural looking pool. We then returned to her home do do some of her senior photos with her horse, Vinny. Vinny is an Appaloosa that has tons personality. Vinny is fairly new to Emily and they plan on showing soon.

David has three loves, polo, motocross and his truck! He wanted to incorporate all three into his Senior photos. The motocross part didn't work out for the shoot for this location, but we got the other 2 done! David attends Liberty Christian in Argyle Texas and plans on attending Texas A&M next fall with hopes of making the Polo team. We did his senior session at Prestonwood Polo Club in Oak Point Texas where is horses are kept. Another early morning session that stayed cool and we finished before it started heating up.
To beat the brutally hot Texas summer day, we did Rileigh's session at sunrise. Sunrise session can be hit or miss on what type of sky you can get. It was a hit for her session and we had some beautiful colors. Rileigh's main horse was Texas so the main part of her session was taken with him, but she still wanted some photos with her other horses, Tess & Manny.
Rileigh attends Argyle High School where she plays volleyball. Her mom who is a professional stylist, did her hair & makeup. Loved this session!
I photographed Hannah and her horse Inviting Rumors "Shea" at Dry River Ranch in Weatherford Texas and rides under the guidance of Stephen Stevens and Terry Cross . Like many spring days in Texas, it was windy and humid. Hannah & Shea where great and handled it will. Hannah will be attending University of Georgia in the fall where she will be part of their Equestrian Team. Hannah asked the photos to show how much she loves Shea. She made it easy, as they obviously have a great horse-human bond with each other.
Katie will be graduating from Aledo High School. She currently competes in the National Reining Horse Association under the guidance of Jared LeClair in Gainesville, Texas. Her and her horse GVG Electric Spark "Pumpkin" have won numerous awards.
Her senior portrait were taken at Hidden Springs Ranch. Hair and make up by Brittini Gillespie of Lucky Locks in Denton, Texas.
So much fun with this session! Courtney brought her 2 horses she competes on plus her adorable mini horse. We also did some super cute photos of her and her boyfriend; Kade. We took her photos at Kade's family land. The cattle there were very interested in what we were doing. Kade's car as well as my ear getting up props was fascinating to them.
Courtney will be attending Texas A&M in the fall on a full equestrian scholarship. She was very proud to show her maroon!
I had so much at Nolan's session. We also did his family portraits at the same time, so it was a whole family affair. Lots of inside jokes and laughs!
