Lauren Lee High School Class of 2016

I met Lauren a few years ago when we photographed her sister's VIP Senior Session.  While I cannot believe how quickly time flies, it seems like we just photographed Chelsey, I was thrilled to see her message requesting her very own Senior VIP Session.

Thankfully, we were able to come up with a date for her very own session.  I love the outfits that she chose and her sweet spirit and willingness to try anything.  I think the results are quite stunning...but any image of Lauren would be stunning.  Don't you agree?  We even received national recognition for this image:

We were so excited when we received the news!  Want to see a few more images from her session?

Sydney Midland High Class of 2016

While we were in California for marketing and Model Sessions with the fabulous Teri Fode and nine other incredible photographers from all over the U.S.A., I received an email from Sydney's mom asking if we could find time to photograph her daughter. 

Thankfully, we found the perfect date, just in time, for Sydney's Senior VIP Session.  Sydney is the Captain of the Varsity Cheerleaders, she was the Catoico Queen, (we were blessed to photograph many of the gorgeous girls in court this year too.  Delight!) and has participated in dance since she was in kindergarten.  With so many accomplishments we had a difficult time narrowing down outfit choices.  But, I love the outcome:

Graduation Hair and Makeup

It's nearly here....the day you have waited for since the first day your stepped foot in high school, college, or maybe even Kindergarten.  Your Graduation Day is just around the corner.  And before your day arrives, it's time to think about your hair and makeup. Because seriously, who knows how to style a mortar board anyway? 

We put together some ideas on our Pinterest Board that we think you might like.  Enjoy!  And happy, happy Graduation Day, gorgeous!

Before you can toss that Mortar Board, you need to know how to rock it! (Stanton High School, Class of 2015....our baby girl is third from the right on the front row.  She was #8 in her graduating class.)

Graduation Haute Couture

We LOVE our seniors and their parents.  It really is a joy getting to know them before their Senior VIP Session, after, and keeping in touch throughout their senior year.  We are seriously blessed with the most incredible clients who often become friends. I love that! 

Last week as many moms and seniors picked up their custom Graduation Announcements from the Studio, so many mentioned they had no idea what they would be wearing to Graduation.  I remember that same exact feeling last year.  Whether your school has strict guidelines, our local high school certainly does, or not, here are some looks we had fun putting together. 

There are link included in each idea set but we are in no way receiving any commission if you use them.  They are simply for you....because we know how crazy busy this time of year is for you!

50 Most Beautiful Moms

A few months ago I received an exciting message that I had been chosen as one of 50 photographers across the United States to take part in Beauty Revived 50 Most Beautiful Moms Campaign!! What an honor!  My job was to photograph, "One of the most beautiful moms." My first thought was my very own mom...she is the most beautiful mom that I have ever known both inside and out.  She is the mom I try every day to be.  And before I become a puddle on the floor, they have given me permission to share her magazine feature spread with all of you.  Delight!!!  I love you so much, mom! Happy, happy Mother's Day! What a blessing to call you mine! 

P.S. I ordered a magazine for you and for me.  I cannot wait to see it!

Mother's Day Gift Idea

Mother's Day is Sunday.  Are you ready?  Need some ideas?  I put together a few just for you...and your mom, of course!

 

Breakfast in bed perhaps?  Not just cereal put in the "good" china. I'm talking about a real breakfast....or better yet, brunch!  She will love it.    And if you aren't the best chef, pick up some things at your local H.E.B. or Marketstreet, arrange it on a pretty plate, add her favorite morning drink, maybe a flower or two, an you are all set.  But, don't forget to clean up the kitchen!

Does you mom enjoy gardening? I know my mom does.  Aren't those little birdies so cute?  Or maybe some new hand tools for the garden?  I absolutely love the smell of rosemary.  I use fresh Rosemary when I make the Pioneer Woman's crash hot potatoes. 

While all of these ideas are pretty fun and special. The one thing your mom would love most in this world, besides you spending time with her, would be the gift of treasured memories! Let us custom design a special photo session of you and your mom.  All you have to do is purchase the gift certificate and we will take it from there.  I can't think of a more memorable gift, a gift that she will treasure for year to come, can you?

 

Senior Guy Sneak Peak~Bryson Westbrook High School Class of 2016

Did you see my Snapchat story from Bryson's super-awesome Senior VIP Session?  If you are not following me on snapchat, my snapchat name is Kikis Corner Photography.  You can see all of our behind the scenes action there and it is so much fun!  Our seniors LOVE being the story of the day and we do too. 

Honestly Bryson's Aunt and Mimi were the ones pushing for a super creative senior session.  Bryson?  He wasn't so sure.  But after a few shots? He was having a blast too!  In fact, after his Senior VIP Session, and his ordering session, I received the sweetest text from his aunt.  She texted, "Mr. "I Don't Want to Take Pictures," took his pictures to school to show everyone!  LOL. Again, thank you! They came out awesome!"  And it totally made my day! 

Want to see some of his images from his custom senior session?  It's so hard to simply post a few, but I'll try.  Enjoy! 

P.S.  If you are a Class of 2017 Senior, we only have 8 sessions still available this summer and we are booking fall sessions too.  Before the crazy busy school schedules and events begin, let us capture your Chic & Unique Senior Session!  Message us today!

Bryson, it was a joy to capture your senior images! I hope you enjoy them as much as I enjoyed taking them!

All Aboard the Denim Train

Denim is everywhere and we are LOVING this trend.  Are you? Denim is so easy and fun to style. Add a string of pearls for a classic look, a patterned skirt for a little drama, a pop of color with shorts and espadrilles or maybe heals if you prefer....the possibilities are endless. Adding style to your sessions is something we love to do and we are always happy to help. 

Spring Fashion Trends

Spring is finally in the air! I've pushed my winter clothes to the back of my closet.  It's time, isn't it?!  After wearing lots of jewel tones and a lot of black, I love to wear black year around, it's time for a little spring in my wardrobe.  Pantone's Colors of the year are Rose Quartz and Serenity.  Think beautiful pink sunsets dipping in to the gorgeous ocean water.  So beautiful! 

Combine Pantone's Colors of the Year with the denim craze and you have yourself a pretty stellar combination!  I cannot wait to see how the seniors I am blessed to photograph this spring incorporate this trend in to their Senior VIP Sessions.  I think it's pretty fabulous!

Regan~Midland Lee Class of 2016

It's almost here, the moment you have been dreaming about since the first day you stepped foot in high school, or perhaps Kindergarten.  You have anticipated, and maybe even dreaded a bit...your Graduation Day.  Embrace every second, treasure every memory, embrace your life long friendships, and enjoy these last few weeks.  While we are wrapping up our Senior 2016 Sessions, we are so honored to have captured you!  

Regan was such a joy to photograph.  I know her future is as bright as she is and I cannot wait to see what the future holds for her.

Adrienne Class of 2016 Senior | Midland Texas Senior Photographer

I was blessed to photograph Adrienne's Sweet Sixteen session and now her Senior VIP Session.  Wow! The years fly by so quickly!  It may have been February, but the temperatures were perfect and the light was incredible.  I loved spending time with Adrienne and her mom.  While the majority of my seniors bring four to five outfits, Adrienne wanted to keep things simple.  I love how many looks we can get just using different locations and poses.  Isn't she gorgeous!!  She will play soccer for LCU in the fall...and they are so blessed to have her!

Graffiti Glam | Midland Tx Senior Photographer

Our Graffiti Glam Model Session was outrageously fun!!! There is something so incredibly awesome about pushing your creative comfort zone and chasing that session you've been thinking about for a while.  The girls were gorgeous and game for anything!!! Makeup by the fabulous @mandydoesmakeup32.  Thank you to my sweetheart for being my number one fan and for his help during this session. Many more images  to share but I couldn't wait any longer!

Puppy Fever

I've caught puppy fever! Yikes! But that's better than baby fever at my age, right?! Puppies are so very cute. I would love to have a little cutie with me at my Studio. I've narrowed it down to four breeds. Which one would you pick?  Does anyone else have puppy fever? I really shouldn't, but I do. And a puppy would be so fun to have at the studio. Which one would you choose? Top left is a Yorkie, top right is a maltipoo, bottom left is a poochon, and bottom right is a cavapoo. (Images courtesy of Pinterest).

"R" Family

Ah, I can hardly wait for their gorgeous Proof Book to arrive!!! But, while we wait, I wanted to share this image. They are all so beautiful/handsome....but Little Bit on the right makes me giggle with joy every time I see this image. She makes you want to giggle too, doesn't she? I wonder what she was thinking about.
