Posing Concerns

Posing Concerns

"I don't know how to pose! Other people look so good when they pose. I won't know what to do when we start taking pictures! I don't know what to do with my hands, or feet, or..."

Does that statement sound like a familiar concern that you may have? Yeah, me too! When I stand in front of a camera, I freeze. I am just unsure of what to do in combination with my outfit and my surroundings. I'm in the picture. I can't see it. 

"These were the first professional pictures I have ever had done, so going into the photoshoot I was very nervous. But with the help of the other two seniors and Kimberly, I soon felt at ease doing the poses that Kimberly described and ended up having a ton of fun!"


11 Thoughts on Graduation

11 Thoughts on Graduation

As I pondered over what to write, I asked my husband for topic ideas. He rattled off a few thoughts and mentioned that it should be a witty commentary on graduation. He said that all my writings are somewhat witty. Hm. Apparently he hasn't read the blog lately! ;) So here it goes: my commentary on graduation and life after graduation. 

Senior: Jacey + Fort Worth, Tx + Fort Worth Senior Photography

Meet Jacey! She is a 2016 senior at Marshall High School. 


Isn't she gorgeous?

She is a member of the award winning Marshall Mavettes. Our session was only days after the team danced their way to a sweepstakes award! 

Jacey said that she would describe herself as witty, and that she absolutely loves people. She plans to attend Stephen F. Austin and major in nursing. One of the many reasons why she wants to go into the nursing field is because she has a heart for helping people.

What to Expect from Your Photography Session + Fort Worth, Tx + Fort Worth Senior Photography

What to Expect from Your Photography Session + Fort Worth, Tx + Fort Worth Senior Photography

Before Your Session

Before we head out on location, we will meet over a cup of coffee to plan all the details of your session. Bring all your ideas, because we we talk clothes, hair, makeup, locations, props, and your vision for your session. I will send you a questionnaire a few days before our appointment, and we will discuss your answers. This planning session is a very important part of the photographing process; you will get to know me better, and I will learn more about you and what is really important to you. The more I know about you, the better I will be able to create a session that is all you.

Senior: Ashlemarie

I am absolutely loving the opportunity to get to photograph seniors. You guys are so full of life, so excited, and in such an amazing part of your lives. You have the world at your feet.

Meet Ashlemarie, senior at Marshall High School.

Sometimes, you don't even know what you share with someone until you dig a little deeper. With each of my seniors, I ask them to fill out a questionnaire so that I know how to better plan for their session. When I read Ashlemarie's answers, I cried. I flashed back on my own junior year when I almost lost my mom. Her father, a former preacher, passed away last fall. This girl is strong. She said, "Since then my brother, my mother, and I have been extremely close, inseparable."


Ashlemarie hopes to attend Texas A&M University in the fall of 2016. She plans to major in agriculture science and to become an Ag teacher at her soon-to-be alma mater Marshall High School. 



She says that she is about about as East Texas as it gets, and that her strong country accent gives it away. 

This year marks the third year of her dancing on the Marshall Mavette Drill team. She served as the Chaplin and Vice President during her membership of the FFA. She won numerous awards and participated at the county show in pig showing and the state level in the Wildlife and Forestry, Career, and Leadership competitions. She is also actively involved in her church's youth group.

She participated in the cosmetology program offered at Marshall High school. By the end of her first semester her senior year she will have 1000 hours and qualify sit for the state board for her license in cosmetology. She plans to work in a hair salon to pay for college. 


You are beautiful Ashlemarie. I can't wait to see what God has in store for you. 

Super Secret Senior Session: Best Friends

For our Super Secret Senior Session, Kaylee, our hair and makeup guru, said: "We focused on a senior session with a twist. We told the story of four best friends who will always stick together even through their differences. We had four different types of looks reflecting today's culture: grungy hipster, free spirit, casual sporty chick and geek chic." 

Scroll to the end to see the video!


From left to right is Mercedes from Longview High, Sarah Joy from Marshall High, Callee from Longview High, and Liz from Marshall High. Mercedes is our grunge girl, Sarah Joy is our athlete, Callee is our geek chic, and Liz is our free spirit.


Some of our best friends in life are often not just like us. They are often look different, think different, and like different things than ourselves. We want to encourage people to befriend others that are different and to embrace each other's uniqueness. 


You girls are awesome!
