Dripping Springs High School | Nikki L | Dawn Fry Photo

I am so excited to introduce you to this stunning girl. We met one sunny day down in Dripping Springs to capture her senior photos and I was so impressed by her. Nikki started off a little shy at first, but very soon relaxed and knocked this session right out of the park. She is such a natural in front of the camera, and her outfit choices were spot on. It was such a joy working with her.

That red lip is to. die. for! It works so well for her with the matching jewelry and white lace dress. We had a blast walking up and down Mercer Street looking for the perfect backdrops for her images. 
You can’t help but love old gas station pumps! What a great location to shoot! With a quick change, Nikki also changed her lip color to a more muted peach that worked perfectly with her skin tone and outfit. I love the old car doors in the background. 
The best thing about Nikki is that she really knows how to carry herself and pose in flattering ways. Her range of expressions kept the images fun and intriguing. Check out those eyes!
Another quick change to this adorable jewel toned outfit and we found the perfect setting to compliment the colors.
Next we headed out to Founders Memorial Park to shoot in some beautiful green fields and with this amazing old wagon. The sun was setting perfectly behind her, giving off a beautiful golden light.
The floppy hat!!! Oh em gee, how I love it.
This was definitely my favorite outfit of all. Look at those sandals! So cute!
We ended the perfect session with the college shirt and letterman jacket shot. Woo hoo!
Thanks again, Nikki, for an amazing session. It was such a joy working with you and your mom. I hope you enjoy the images.

Claire | Anderson High School Spokesmodel | Dawn Fry Photo

I had the great privilege of photographing Anderson High School DFP Senior Spokesmodel, Claire, out in downtown Georgetown. I love the creative challenge of finding backgrounds that will light up her amazing red hair and bring out her eyes. It’s fun to locate different areas of town that will bring the photos to life. 

Teals and blues are always a good choice for my ginger girls. Claire’s eyes just sparkled!
And sometimes, even a red brick wall will look amazing. I love this ombré top that she wore. 
It wouldn’t be a senior session if we didn’t head over to the park to play in the sunshine and water. 
Nailed it. Thanks so much, Claire, for absolutely killing your session. It was so fun to capture your amazing beauty!

Hagen | Vandegrift High School Spokesmodel | Dawn Fry Photo

Hagen’s senior session began bright and early one morning. After meeting up with my amazing makeup artist, Ledda, at 6AM, she was pampered with gorgeous, flawless makeup and hair styling. We headed out to Bull Creek to shoot some sunrise nature photos, and had so much fun. 

Class of 2016, REPRESENT!:) 
After having fun in the park, we headed downtown to South Congress to capture a more urban look for Hagen’s images. I love the colors of downtown – they totally drew out her gorgeous eyes.
I always try to make sure mom gets in a shot at the end. She works hard to make this day happen for her senior, and deserve some recognition too.
Thanks so much, Hagen, for helping me create these beautiful photos of you. I hope you enjoy them, always.

Meagan | Westwood High School Elite Spokesmodel | Dawn Fry Photo

This is a story about a beautiful young woman who decided to take a road trip.


This beautiful woman, dressed in her finest, set out on a road trip in her old Thunderbird, to find the princess. The weather was perfect, the road was clear, and she was sure to find her way through the Austin streets to her destination. 
But soon the beautiful woman found herself lost. She checked the maps, only to find they were for foreign lands. What was she to do?
Suddenly, as if by magic, two handsome men found the stranded woman and they offered to escort her to her destination. The beautiful young woman was relieved. 

After thanking the gentlemen, the beautiful young woman went in to the hotel to find the princess. That was when she discovered, SHE was the princess! She donned her emerald green ball gown, and made her grand entrance. 

When the ball was over, the princess reflected on her charmed life and remembered she had an important job to do.
She had to graduate from Westwood High School! She put on her letterman jacket and headed back to school to finish her senior year. Being  princess was awesome, but being a high school senior was even better. Soon there would be even more time for road trips and adventures.
Thank you, Meagan, for being an amazing spokesmodel and planning this unforgettable senior session! I cannot tell you how fun this was. I also want to give a HUGE thank you to your mom (the Queen!), your aunt, grandfather, great uncle, and everyone else who helped out, drove cars, loaned props, provided support and cheered you on for this shoot. You have an amazing family and I am blessed to be a part of your senior year.

And of course, I could not have even remotely pulled off this shoot without the help of my amazing Hair, Makeup, and Light Bending DIVA Extraordinaire, Ledda! Check her out rocking this lighting test shot!


One more – thank you to the Renaissance Hotel for allowing us to shoot in your beautiful facility. It was a pleasure.
