Hey y'all! This past weekend I had the opportunity to do a family session for a childhood friend of mine! When I was in high school, Ancil and I hung out a lot and found ourselves doing dances for different grad parties. I went to her house a lot and I have nothing but good memories from her and her family. Ancil wanted to take some family pictures since the only ones they really have are formal studio pictures. For those of you who have never taken any pictures for fun with your family I highly suggest it! We headed to Harry Meyers Park in Rockwall. Although it's been a while, it was so great getting to spend some time with her & her family. I loved taking pictures for this family because they all genuinely had a lot of fun with the session. They had so many cute pictures it was hard to choose just a few to highlight. Here's a few of my favorites from their session, enjoy!
This week I had the opportunity to do a portrait session with Katelyn. Portraits are my favorite kind of pictures to take so I was super excited when Katelyn reached out to me. One thing I really love about photography is getting to meet new people from different walks of life. It's always a little awkward when I first meet a brand new client but after about 5 minutes it's like you're hanging out with an old friend. Katelyn is a soon to be senior from Rockwall and she needed some good portraits for her upcoming pageant. How cool is that? She's competing in the National American Miss Pageant this month. One thing she really wanted for her pictures this year is for them to really portray more of her personality. It's kind of hard for you to tell who you are based off of a picture alone, but Katelyn is awesome and brought props. If you know me, you know I love incorporating props into photos.
Katelyn had a 2 hour session so first we went to downtown Rockwall and then we went to Harry Meyers Park for the second outfit. One thing I loved about photographing Katlyn is her confidence. She was so fierce and confident in herself which is such a refreshing thing to see in a high school girl. Just from the 2 hours of hanging out with her I can tell she's headed off to great places. Katelyn, I had a great time meeting you & hearing your story. Check out some of my favorites from this pretty little lady's shoot!
