It might surprise you to find out that I’ve never popped a bottle of champagne. How is that possible? Well, photographers are always photographing the person shooting that stream of happiness across the room. (I am very good at dodging that cork)
In honor of Texas Tradition Photography’s 25th anniversary, I decided to try something new. Thank you to my friends Sandy and Kevin for helping me pull this off. Sandy from Sandra Lynch Photography guided me in opening the bottles (it took two) and captured the craziness as it unfolded. It was quite entertaining watching my hilarious attempts to make the champagne spew. And also a big thank you to my friend Kevin from Stuff in the Ruff for creating an amazing winter wonderland background out of my plain brown door.
When it comes to Senior Portraits, we know what we are talking about. How can I say that with such confidence? Because I listen! I listen to what my past seniors tell me, I listen to what my current seniors tell me, and I’m going to listen to what YOU tell me.
Your senior portraits are going to be AMAZING. So, start thinking about what that means to you. Will they be taken inside the studio surrounded by all of your pointe shoes? Will they be outside in a pasture… in front of some city buildings… on a football field with bleachers and a scoreboard in the background… with your favorite pet pig? Okay, that’s a lot to think about, but we can brain storm and come up with what AMAZING senior portraits look like to YOU. Together we’ve got this!
What next? I’m glad you asked. Right now is the best time to schedule your 2020 senior portrait session. We are launching our first and best 2020 senior portrait session special. It only runs for two weeks and the best summer appointment times fill up fast.
Here are the details.
Grab your calendar and give us a call to schedule your 2020 senior portrait session today. Or fill out the contact form below and we will contact you. Hurry, this offer only lasts two short weeks, but it will be the perfect start to your senior year.
One of the most frequently asked questions I get from incoming Seniors is “When is the best time to schedule my senior portrait session?” Well, the right answer is “anytime that is good for you”.
However, there are SO many reasons to schedule your senior portrait session during the summer. For one, YOU ARE FINALLY A SENIOR!!! You are super excited right now to begin your senior year.
Summer is also the time when you don’t have any stress and you have a great tan! Once school starts you will be bogged down with homework, SAT prep and testing, college visits, Practice for Band, cheer, football, drill team and other Fall sports. And starting at the end of October, it will be dark outside by 5:00. So, that cuts out 5 days out of the week that you won’t be available. And… I’m pretty sure you teenagers like to have dates and social time on the weekends.
So, Grab your calendars and either give us a call or fill out the form at the end of this post. We will set a date for your portrait session and then you can start shopping for outfits! See you soon.
If you could see my face right now, you could see the excitement beaming! After 4 weeks of interviewing and emailing and texting and chatting on the phone…. I am proud to introduce you to our 2020 Senior Modeling Street Team.
Just to refresh your memory, Our Street Team is a group of Seniors for the upcoming year who help us keep up with trends, stay connected to other seniors, and of course model for us. This is going to be a great year.
So, without further delay…. I’m proud to present to you….
And Yes, we have already started booking 2020 senior portrait sessions for this summer! If you’d like to get a head start on the crowd and get first choice of popular dates, sign up below and we will get your session reserved. (and YES, there is a HUGE session discount and gift for booking early)

Who are “they” anyway? This time of year for senior photographers, we are saying goodbye to our 2018 Seniors and welcoming our 2019 seniors. It’s one of those bittersweet moments in my industry. I have watched my 2018 seniors grow from excited but nervous Juniors into these confident young men and women. I’m so proud of the young adults they are all becoming. As they head into their last week of high school, many emotions begin to surface. One HUGE emotion, seniors often refer to as “senioritis” but parents would more affectionately call it “attitude”is often at the forefront. Even the most well adjusted seniors experience senioritis to some degree.
A word to parents with graduating seniors… this last week of school might bring out the “attitude” in your precious teenager, but keep in mind, that you were once a senior. If you can look past the shortness of temper and the lack of motivation for school work and chores and anything else that would be classified as productive… you might notice an excited yet nervous child. We expect these kids to be grown ups by the time they graduate from high school, but really they are thrown into a huge world of decision making and independence. This world is scary. And although they think they are ready, and they probably are, there is still fear of the unknown. Be a little forgiving and compassionate during this transition time. After all, we DO want them to come home to visit.
A word to seniors about your parents… Although you are REALLY excited to be graduating, keep in mind that your parents may feel like time has passed them by. Parents have SO much to teach you before you take off on your own, their heads are spinning wondering how you were in Kindergarten yesterday and are graduating today! I’m serious when I say, you WILL understand their point of view when you have kids of your own. But until then, please be patient with them. They have been and are still your biggest supporter. They have been here for you since birth and they will continue to be here for you as you shove off into the big world ahead of you. I challenge you to take a few minutes of each day this week to thank your parents for something they have done for you and to tell them you love them. You might be surprised how just these two little/huge things will change your life.
I know I am JUST your senior photographer, but I’m SO proud of ALL of my 2018 seniors!!! Go out into this HUGE world and make a difference. My generation is counting on you! And… please stay in touch.
