Ballet Session {McAllen Tx Ballet Photographer}

I just love capturing dancers in the studio…simple, and beautiful…no costumes, no backdrops, just the dancer.  L has been on pointe for about a year and a half now, and this was the perfect time to have her visit me in the studio.  Hope her mom loves these as much as I do…



J’s Headshot Session {McAllen Texas Teen & Tween Photographer}

I had a great time with one of my very favorite 5th graders over spring break! I loved doing J’s Headshot Session…could she be anymore photogenic??

Email me at to schedule your child/teen/tween Headshot Session! I am also still scheduling High School Senior Sessions, but those are more limited…

C’s Senior Session {McAllen TX High School Senior Photographer}

Sorry ahead of time for the overshare, but I just LOVE this session, AND this boy!  C came all the way down from Fort Worth Texas to do his Senior Session.  We had the BEST time exploring downtown McAllen (my 14 assisted so it was extra fun since they are great friends!)  Thank you Curran family for trusting me with C’s Senior portraits, it was so much fun, and I LOVE these images so much!!!

Katie’s Ballet Studio Session {McAllen Texas Teen Photographer}

I LOVE doing simple, natural light Ballet Sessions in my studio!  No costumes, no props, no fancy backdrops, just the dancer, in their simple leo and tights….It took me forever to do this, but I finally brought my 14 year old in the studio to do her shoot.  Now I need to bring in my 10 year old, who is also on pointe now!

If anyone is interested in doing this kind of session, this week is perfect…I would love to schedule a few more studio sessions this week while kids are home from school…it’s SO much easier to schedule school age kids for studio sessions when they are on break!  Email me soon if you would like to schedule a Studio Session!  Also, you can see more samples of my work on my Facebook page…

H’s Senior Session {McAllen Texas High School Senior Photographer}

Here’s another amazing High School Senior that I had the honor and pleasure of photographing this season!  I have also known H almost her entire life, like many of the other Seniors that I have worked with this year.  I believe she was around 2 years old when I met her and her family.  I’ve loved watching her swim for McAllen Memorial High, and dance for Melba’s Dance School over the years.  We had a great time at her session (my 14 year old assisted and so much fun with H!).

I am still scheduling Senior Sessions , but time is quickly running out…May will be here before we know it!!!  Email me soon to schedule your Senior Session, and click on this link to view my online Senior Magazine.  It should answer any questions you may have about doing a Senior Session with me!
