Lago Vista High School | Harley | Dawn Fry Photo

Harley’s session started downtown on a warm, sunny day down on South Congress. I love it when my Lago Vista seniors want to venture outside of their sweet little town to come to the city. It was great to explore places that are uniquely Austin. We had so much fun finding the perfect backdrops for her stylish outfits. Of course, Harley is a natural in front of the camera, so posing her was super easy. Even better, her mom brought some awesome props to play with – the flowers and the chair were a big hit. Our second location was Bull Creek, and I was so excited that she wanted to play in the water. We had a blast!

Thank you, Harley for the super fun session! It was such a pleasure working with you!

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.
