Senior Portraits // Alyssa

Last weekend I had the opportunity to take the beautiful Alyssa’s senior photos in Marion and Gruene, TX. Alyssa is graduating from Marion High School in a couple of months and is interested in pursing agricultural science. We had a lot of fun trying to make Alyssa laugh, playing with how to shoot in the super bright sun after all the rain we had last week, and even found a crawfish hanging out in the river!

Prom 2016

Because I had so much fun taking my sister-in-law’s senior pictures, I decided to take her senior prom photos as well. And bonus, I invested in a new camera! These were all taken with Nikon’s D330 and edited with Photoshop CS6. It was a really good opportunity for me to get some experience shooting groups of people, rather than just portrait shots. Although it’s easy to get good shots when your subjects are this gorgeous! As always, I welcome any feedback and can’t wait to play around with my D330 more.

Senior Portraits // Samantha

As promised in my last post, I’m so excited to share the senior portraits I shot for my sister-in-law. I’ve known Sam for almost seven years, so obviously this was a lot of fun. We shot on our property in Marion, in Austin, in Gruene, and a few at Canyon High School in New Braunfels. Sam loves animals and working with children. She is proud to be attending Texas Lutheran University in the fall and plans to pursue a career in education.

I honestly thought that was what my college years were for and that I would have my shit together by now, but I was very, very wrong. College gave me a clear-cut path for what my life was supposed to be. It gave me structure with deadlines, course catalogs, assignments, applications, schedules, and attendance policies. And then I graduated, got married, went on my honeymoon, looked around at all my choices and said, “okay, now what?” And the universe gave me white noise.

I’m not even going to try to come up with excuses for why it’s been so long since I’ve posted on here. Shit happens. I’m trying to get it together. And this is probably mostly going to be me rambling, because I haven’t written in awhile. I’m sorry in advance.

My quarter-life crisis is in full effect, which means I’m constantly looking for new and exciting ways to fill my time, even though I have very little free time. I guess it’s not really to fill my time as much as it is to find some sort of purpose in my life. There’s been a reoccurring theme since turning 23 in which I decide I really want to do this or be that or go here or try this new something, and then I realize: I hate all of those things. Those things are not for me. Better try this new thing.
