One of the awesome perks of being a spokesmodel with Dawn Fry Photo is the fun group shoots we do. We pick themes throughout the year, and everyone dresses according to the theme for the shoot. Some themes are pretty simple, like patriotic, back to school, and boho, but some are a little more complex. The theme for this particular shoot was "Decades" where the girls could dress up as any decade they wanted to. Unfortunately on this day, it was pretty dreary and rainy, but thankfully 2 of my most awesome spokesmodels decided to brave the rain with me and do the shoot anyway. The most fun part was that they dressed in totally different decades, the 40's and 50's, so we had a clashing yet fun mix of styles to photograph. 

Shelby, one of my Vandegrift High School spokesmodels, dressed as Sandy from the movie, Grease. Her look was perfect and suited her fun, quirky personality. Grease is one of my favorite all time movie/musicals, so I about died when Shelby showed up in this incredible ensemble. She was perfection. 

Alyssa, another Vandegrift High School spokesmodel, totally rocked this 40's outfit. I absolutely LOVED her dress, well placed broach, and the fascinator in her hair. Alyssa is always an absolute dream to photograph, and her time with me before her actual senior shoot several months later, really prepared her for knocking her senior photos out of the park. She is a stunning beauty anyway, both inside and out, and it is such a joy photographing her every time I see her. 

For this shoot we enjoyed photographing on location in downtown Round Rock, and after walking around for a bit found this amazing little bright blue building that made me squeal with joy. Finding a great background is always a bonus, and the girls looked amazing in front of the blue. 

The moral of the story is - never let a drizzly day ruin your photo plans, and always, always be bold enough to express your fun side. Even if your styles may clash, you can still create something great. 

 

XOXO

On another super hot day in August, I had the pleasure of photographing Georgetown High School drum major and Elite DFP Spokesmodel, Morgan S. Morgan is a natural beauty and thanks to her marching band training, handled the sweltering heat better than anyone! We started her senior session downtown, to show off her edgy side. 

This girl is coooool as a cucumber! 

After working our way up and down Congress and the numbered streets, we headed back to Georgetown for a total switch from urban photos to soft, nature images. Morgan planned the perfect outfits for this location, and also chose to bring her letterman jacket and flute to capture her interests and personality. 

My favorite part of her session was when her family brought out the family dogs! Getting all three to look in the right place at the right time was difficult, but eventually it all worked out. 

I absolutely ADORE the matching bandanas!! With the dogs successfully photographed, we let them run and play in the water a little while Morgan played in the water too. After such a hot session, it was nice to cool off in the San Gabriel river for a few images before sunset. 

She's a little bit city, a little bit country, and all heart. I loved spending the day with her and her family, capturing her senior photos.

This sweet girl was one of the first class of 2017 seniors I photographed last year. Shelby, from Georgetown High School, is a fabulous DFP Spokesmodel. With the help of her parents and sweet sister, we ventured out one hot August morning to capture Shelby and create her photo legacy. 

Shelby's after high school plans involve studying nursing, so we made sure to incorporate that personal aspect of her life into her photos. She will make a fantastic healthcare worker someday. Her heart is truly a caring and kind one. 

Since we were photographing in San Gabriel Park in Georgetown, we took advantage of the beautiful sunken garden and fun fountain. It is the perfect location for senior photos. 

Shelby brought a variety of props to her photo shoot, including some adorable daisies, balloons, and glitter. She really made her photo session fun and personal. 

Another great addition to her shoot was her Georgetown High School letterman jacket, and of course her clarinet, which she played in the school band. Shelby's senior photos will completely capture who she is in this amazing time of her life. When she looks back on these, there will be no doubt about how beautiful, well-rounded, involved, and fun she was in high school.

As special thank you goes out to Shelby's parents and sister for hauling, adjusting, and light bending for us during the shoot. Shelby's dad is a master Light Bending Bro, and I so enjoyed spending that hot morning with all of you! You are the best!

On a cold and rainy day a couple of weeks ago, we gathered some of the DFP Spokesmodels for a fun sweetheart themed shoot and a Cards For Kids valentine making activity. 

The girls made about 40 cards for the kids out at Dell Children's Hospital, and after our event I dropped them off at Mama Fu's restaurant, so they would be distributed during the Mix 94.7 event. I am so proud of the girls for taking part in this activity, and absolutely LOVE the cards they created. We have so much talent in this group!

One of our team moms did an AMAZING job of putting together a surprise Valentine's Day Party for the girls. She went all out making treats and goodies and took care of us so well. I can not thank her enough for her generosity and all the work she put in to make us feel loved. It made the day super special. Thank you so much, Amanda, for everything you do! You are an amazing momma and a great friend to the DFP Spokesmodel team. We love you!

The girls were so sweet and brave to stand out in the cold and look cute for pictures! 

They don't look cold at all, do they? Shelby (Vandegrift High School) and Lexie (Georgetown High School) rocked their individual shots. They are pros at this by now. 

And I am so excited to introduce you to one of our newest team members, Vandegrift High School class of 2018 Spokesmodel, Adriana C! Adriana was so fun to work with! I know she is going to do amazing things this coming year. We are so excited to have her on the team. 

My gorgeous white rose girls...

We had so much fun! Fierce and sassy, sweet and happy, these girls know how to do it all. I loved this time with them so much!

Saving the best for last, we got to be silly with some fun heart shaped glasses.
