Senior Models Round 2- Adventures of a Carrollton Senior Portrait Photographer

We’ve already introduced you to half of our stylish models, now we’re ready to introduce the rest of the trendy group!

Drum roll please!

Brynn is a senior at Hebron, and we LOVE her! This outfit is perfect because it has a nice punch of color. Plus, Brynn accesorized with a matching cuff and boots to make the look complete. Simple style is the most impressive! As Coco Chanel said, “Before you leave the house, look in the mirror and take one thing off.”

We love Taylor’s dress. It has a simple silhouette but the geometric pattern is what makes it special. This dress didn’t need any accesories, the pattern was bold enough to stand alone.

Patrick went with something casual that really brought out his eyes, and he definitely knows how to smile. Though that might just be because he’s the only guy, lucky him!

Kelsey went really bold with the color of her dress and finished the look off with nuetrals. Her bone colored espadrilles look great and are super versatile, add in some beautiful natural make-up and you have a fantastic look!

I am head over heels in LOVE with Katie’s chevron shirt. Plus Katie didn’t just stop there. Instead of going the super easy route and choosing an inexpensive looking pair of flip flops, she chose an adorable sandal with bronze colored beading. The simplest way to make an outfit a success is adding the right pair of shoes!

Picking just one image of Caitie was really hard, she photographs so well! I ended up choosing this one because it shows off her amazing eyes. Caitie’s make-up is simple, but highlights her features perfectly. A lot of people go over the top on make-up for pictures, if you choose just one feature to accentuate you’ll get pictures as beautiful as Caitie’s!

If you’re a 2014 Senior and know any of these amazing models, keep an eye out! Pretty soon they’ll have something to give you for your Senior Portraits at Texas Tradition Photography!

My Trip to Louisville, Kentucky – Carrollton Photographer

If you know me well, then you know that I don’t travel much. I prefer to spend my weekends photographing families and weddings. So, this “trip” all started when my husband was scheduled for an overnight business trip to Louisville. Just as we have always done in the past, I planned to stay home with our daughter and dog. Besides, it was right after my first dance school.

To my surprise, my mom called and suggested I tag along this time. I thought she was crazy, but she offered to stay with Linzy and Maggy at the house. So, what the heck, it’s only for one night.

Mike booked me a ticket and we were off to the airport. It was just like we were young again. We raced down the elevators, fought over the tempature of the air conditioner and talked non stop on the plane. Once we got to Louisville, we got a rental car and headed to the hotel. We had a few detours in between like the chocolate store and stopping to chat with some young military men. But, overall it was smooth sailing.

Once we hit our room, Mike started preparing for his presentation and I started researching Louisville, Kentucky. I was expecting a small country town, but actually, Louisville is a beautiful town with rich history. After all it is the home to the Kentucky Derby! You know… horses! Now that I’m here, I would love to stay a few extra days and explore some of the restored Victorian homes and Museums. I bet locals have beautiful weddings here.

Sometimes it takes getting away from something to be able to see the big picture. When you own a small business like I do, you own everything from marketing and taxes to taking out the trash. Even though my business is photography, photography is actually the thing I do the least of.

If I were to research Texas Tradition Photography like I just did Louisville Kentucky, I might be less impressed. But, keep in mind that I am the photographer, the Facebooker, the blogger, the web master, the business owner, the janitor (not a good one) the everything. I AM Texas Tradition Photography and I’m trying everyday to get better at everything. And today, sitting in my hotel room in Louisville, Kentucky, I realize that I need to work more on my web appearance. I need to share more with the world. I do some amazing photography for some amazing people, but get so wrapped up in the day to day business that I fail to share it with you. So, when I get back home, In between my next dance schools, weddings and senior portraits, I will take it up a notch with my web presence. But for now… I’m sitting here relaxing while Mike is giving his presentation. From my window, I see the Louisville Harley Davidson store and Hobby Lobby. Both are within walking distance… good thing since Mike took the car. I have $40 and 4 hours to spare. Which should I choose?…
