Dallas BFF Session

This Dallas BFF session was last Friday. Well, actually, it was in Sachse, a little town outside Dallas.

Jordyn is one of my models and she invited her BFF, Anna, and her cute little sister, Jocelyn to the session. We worked around sunset and had a fun time and lots of laughs. Kei Perry did their beautiful makeup. Wow! They looked gorgeous. We never want over-the-top makeup for teens. Kei and the other makeup artists I work with keep it very natural.

This is private property and I fell in love with it. There were many little areas where we could work. The homeowner showed me a wagon way across the property, which was a definite must.

Stomp, stomp stomp, as we headed over the grass to get to this wagon. Worth the stomping!

The way this tree looked by the pond inspired me to do a more picnic type of shot. My legs get itchy just thinking about the grass, but we had a blanket.

I did a few of each of the girls separately:

And then, as usual, I get all giggly when the beautiful sunset comes. This day was no exception.

I wanted to show the girls having fun. So we tried a few ideas, like whispering funny things. I love the expressions on their faces here.

I am booking now for fall and I promise it will be here before you know it! This year, I'm working Friday and Saturday evenings. So if you are involved with football, you will want to snap up one of those Saturday appointments before they are gone. There already aren't many left.

McKinney Boyd Senior Session

McKinney Boyd Senior Session

This McKinney Boyd Senior Session took place in Richardson a few weeks ago.

Yes, it was summer. In case you don't know, summer here in Texas can be brutal. It was close to 100 degrees at this session. I met with the family a few weeks beforehand at their home to discuss clothing, makeup, and the session itself. Kei Perry did Ashley's gorgeous makeup.

When Ashley and I met at her consultation, she showed me this blouse. We talked about putting a belt with it to define the waist.

I loved this outfit. The blue in her blouse looked great with her beautiful strawberry blonde hair and skin tones:

We wanted to feature her high school activities, so I asked her to bring her jacket. We definitely tried to minimize her time wearing it because of the heat. Whew!

The cut of this blouse is quite flattering on Ashley. I usually recommend solid colors but I thought this print worked with the simple background.

Did I say Ashley is going off to college? Yay! I am sure she is beyond excited to be starting soon.

I love the expression on her face. The blue blouse really makes her eyes stand out in this shot.

Best wishes, Ashley, at college this year! Thanks for reading!

All private senior sessions with Studio You Portraits include an in-home consultation. Way better than a phone call! It really helps for us to meet in person prior to the session so that you will be more relaxed when the picture-taking starts. Also, it helps me to get a feel for your style and meeting in homes is the best way to do that. I want to recommend products that fit your decor.

To schedule your senior portraits, give me a call at 214.783.9691 or email me today at Dawn@StudioYouPortraits.com.

Emma - Prom Dress Session

Emma - Prom Dress Session

My family has known Emma's family for many years and they are very special to me.

I have photographed her family a few times over the years, but this was the first time I photographed Emma by herself.

Emma is a very talented young woman. She has an absolutely beautiful singing voice and also participates on the drill team at school. But, more than all that, she is a super sweet person. It was really fun to work with her by herself for the first time at this session.

Emma and I talked about doing a prom dress session and I found a perfect (secret) spot for it! She showed me her dress via text message, but I was still blown away when she arrived at her session in it. She was absolutely radiant! I loved how the color of the dress changed, depending on what light she was in.

We worked for about a half hour. Whew! In the Dallas heat, it sure was hot! But you can't tell by looking at Emma. She rocked her session. And she did her own makeup, too, which looked gorgeous.

This location was small but it had lots of interesting architectural features.

As the sun went down, I wanted to feature the building a little more, as much of it had been pretty bright up until this point. I love her soft expression here.

Are you graduating in the Class of 2016? You can wear a prom dress as part of your session if you want to! In fact, most girls have at least three different looks. I'm able to work quickly and efficiently to get the very best portraits.

It's only July, I know, but I have lots of portraits to get on the calendar. If you want me to do your senior portraits, be sure to book soon before they run out! Email dawn@studioyouportraits.com or call 214783961.
