Future Military JAG - San Antonio HS Senior Photographer

Miss Emma comes to us from Randolph High School.  She's a beauty for sure.  She's got her act together.  She's driven, knows exactly what she wants, and has a plan to achieve her goals.  Her plans are to attend the University of Alabama this Fall, where she will study to become a lawyer in the US Air Force.  She plans of making the military her career.  Then on to politics. Emma is involved in just about everything offered at her school; ROTC, on the tennis team, track and field team, powerlifting team (yes, I’m not exaggerating), and various other groups.  When she does find free time, she loves to watch her favorite TV show, Friends.  She told me she just about has every episode memorized. 

Her favorites:

Quote: “The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams”

Song: “Africa” by Toto

Plans for next year: Attend the University of Alabama

What people will remember her most for: Her ability to connect with people

If she could do one thing to impact the world: Help close the huge division between everyone in America

Emma, you are a very special young lady. Your uncanny ability to connect with people is a gift. Your abilities are limitless, and your future is bright. You can’t fault anyone that loves the movie “Forrest Gump”. I hope your future is filled will meaningful relationships, and you make your mark on the world. And for any reason, you don’t achieve all of your goals, you will still be a success. Watch a short video from the session here.

An authentic beauty…..

Future Engineer - San Antonio HS Senior Photographer

Josh comes to us from John Paul ll High School. He’s planning of attending college after graduation and pursue a degree in Mechanical Engineering. His love of Space attracted him to this field. He actually would love to major in Space Engineering, but that’s a very specific and limited field. I’ve known Josh’s mom since before he was born, literally. I used to walk by her office and see her bump (him) growing every day. I also had the privilege of knowing two of his sisters. Josh is a very down-to-earth young man. He’s been raised to believe and pursue truth. I have no worries that he will succeed in what he sets his heart and mind on. He’s strong-willed, independent, quick-witted, and intelligent. He’s says he’s ready to attend University in the Fall, probably choosing Texas A&M Corpus Christi or UTSA. Either way, he’ll eventually make it to Texas A&M University in College Station.

His favorites:

Quote: “Even in the darkest of nights, I still see the moonlight”

Plans for next year: Study Engineering in College

If he could do one thing to impact the world: Help put a man on Mars

You can see more of Josh in this short video.

Mr. Baseball - San Antonio High School Senior Photographer

Logan came to us from East Central HS. He is a member of the baseball team. Logan is full of life. The entire time we had him, he never stopped. His energy levels were off the chart. Always laughing and having a good time. Logan is blessed to have the two parents he has. They love him to death. But the funny thing is, he doesn’t take it for granted. He doesn’t act spoiled. He knows how good he has it, and acts accordingly. We had a marathon session, but Logan never stopped. He even went out with his girlfriend afterwards. Our session started at the studio and finished at the baseball field at East Central HS. I really enjoyed photographing him. He has enough personality for a few people. There’s never a dull moment with him.

His Favorites:

Quote: “Luck to me is lots of determination, hard work, faith in myself, and in God”

Song: “Stressed Out: If We Could Turn Back Time” by Twenty-One Pilot

Plans for Next Year: Go to College

What people will remember him most for: His personality: Good-Hearted, Smile, and Goofiness

If he could do one thing to impact the world: Solve Poverty

Logan has faced many challenges in his life, but he has learned how to overcome. Hard work, determination, perseverance, and persistence are all part of his character. He has achieved what most people aren’t willing to go the extra mile for. Logan, I know you will “make it” in life. How do I know this? Your ambition and willingness to be a team player speaks volumes for your character. Your parents have done you right, and that my friend is one of the greatest blessings you could ever wish for. You can see more images from the session here, in this short video.

James Madison Dollies Dance Team 2018 - San Antonio Photographer

 

I can't believe this is our 15th year photographing the JM Dollie Dance Team.  Of course, it's always fun working with such talented young ladies.  Mrs. Shelly Flynn does a phenomenal job with these girls as their Dance Team Coach.  In all honesty, they are one of the most spunky, talented, and creative teams in our area.  There's never a dull moment either.  They are constantly laughing and being silly, so you can't help but smile and enjoy the ride. Congratulations Dollies to another year of growth and success. Here's a video from the session

The Girl with the Big Smile - Miss Clarissa - San Antonio High School Senior Photographer

Miss Clarissa is a senior from Smithson Valley HS.  She's outgoing, and likes to make people laugh.  We came to meet because of her mom.  We went to school together.  I believe it was Geometry class.  Who'd have thought, years later, she'd be entrusting me to create her daughter's senior portraits?  Anyway, Clarissa wants to become a veterinarian.  She's hopeful to attend Texas A&M next Fall.  Michelle kept saying she couldn't believe how calm and relaxed she was during the session.  I wasn't surprised.  She's a natural in front of the camera.  It made my job so much easier.  Maybe it has something to do with me, but we got the best of Clarissa, and the images were out-of-this-world beautiful.  When I asked her to describe her "one portrait" that would capture her true self, she said, "in my flower dress, in a field, laughing".  We were in a field of flowers and "what do you know", we got the shot.  We got so many good images that her mom said that she would have a hard time choosing.  I just told her to put us on her bank account and we'd be good.  Clarissa has a sense of humor, loves to smile, and a big heart.  She never seems to let things tear her down.  Maybe it's her faith, but she seems to be headed in the right direction with the right attitude.  We certainly wish the best for her, especially with her walk with the Lord.  If you ever need a "Pick-Me-Up", Clarissa is the one to call.  She's got a pep in her step, and her smile lasts awhile.  Clarissa, may all your dreams come true, and you bring light into the world, making it a better place because you are in it.  You can view a video of her, here.  Enjoy.....
