Watercolor images – Monica ’15

After processing the images Monica purchased from her Senior Session, we just had to play with one of them for a watercolor. The old metal building she picked for one of her locations was full of color hidden from the naked eye, but brought to life by our processing.

If you like this water color effect, it can be applied to almost any image. And, since it’s a hand-applied technique, no two will ever be the same. These images look best on a gallery-wrapped canvas for a frameless effect that looks great on any wall.

Monica – Senior Class of 2015

Monica is a younger sister of one of our brides and is graduating in just a few weeks. We were lucky to spend a little bit of Spring Break with her to grab some Senior ’15 images in celebration of this milestone in her life.

These are some of our favorite images with a funky color effect all over them. We’ll adjust it further to Monica’s tastes when we re-touch her favorite images.

Ben – Class of 2012

Ben’s grandmothers have been begging for better Senior portraits than the ones they got from school. With his departure for college just days away, we grabbed some images at the Arboretum in northwest Austin.

2011 Senior Ambassador: Sarah Wahlgren

We are so excited about Sarah’s “goodies” from her Senior Ambassador session. Now, she is equipped with images to share with family and friends!

Sarah’s Ambassador “Rep” Cards let her offer exclusive discounts to other Seniors in her class.

And these lovely 4×6 cards are perfect for sharing with friends or converting into graduation announcements.

Plus, Sarah got a set of her favorite images for her phone & computer and to share on facebook!

Class of 2011 Senior Ambassador: Caroline Godwin

Caroline is an aspiring model, so, you can imagine the fun we had with her session at Mayfield Park and Preserve and then downtown Austin on 6th Street.

And, downtown, the guys were quite interested! Several of them asked if they could ask her out. I’d just say, “You’ll  have to ask her mom; she’s only 17.” It was fun to see Caroline get so much attention.

Caroline, Thank you very much for such a fun session! I can’t wait to hear what you think of the images. You can use your password to view the whole gallery.

Class of 2011 Senior Ambassador: Matt Tucker

Matt wanted a very Austin session for his Senior portraits and chose Mt. Bonnell for the spectacular views. After the cool weather we’ve been having, we found it to be a warm afternoon, but Matt’s wonderful smile made it easy to grab a few shots in preparation for the upcoming “scrapbook page” deadline for the Westlake High School yearbook!

Matt, you can your family/friends can use your password to view all the images!

Class of 2011 Senior Ambassador: Sarah Wahlgren

Sarah simply exudes sweetness, so working with her is already a real pleasure and joy! We did a bit of sun-dodging and fought a little haze on her portrait day, but it was fun to chat while we waited for the return of a cloud or other good light.

Class of 2011: Taylor

Taylor wanted something purely Austin for her Senior Portraits, so we made the hike up Mt. Bonnell. What a spectacular view

Dylan Ellett Class of 2010 Senior

Before Dylan heads off to college on a golf scholarship, his mom wanted us to help commemorate this time in his life with a portrait session. A park was the perfect setting for us to get in all the “shots”.

Sue, you can Dylan can use your password to view your online gallery.

Katie’s College Senior Session

Katie and her mom wanted an updated portrait as she gets ready to finish college and begin a job search (with a new image for her LinkedIn profile). They also wanted to show of the blue accents in Katie’s hair!

The Arboretum is one of our favorite session locations because there is a wide variety of settings in a tight space. And, the grounds are lush and green almost year-round.

Katie, Thank you for a great session full of many giggles! You and your mom can use your password to see all the images in your online gallery.
