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.

Robyn | Vandegrift High School Spokesmodel | Dawn Fry Photo

Robyn really wanted an Austin feel to her images, so we chose to shoot with the skyline in the background. The Long Center and Butler Park were the perfect locations for this Vandegrift High School Senior. Robyn is part of my senior spokesmodel team, and a total dream to work with. I loved this session!

Many thanks to Robyn and her awesome mom for helping out with this shoot. It was a fun day and a great memory.

Jacie | Cedar Park High School | Dawn Fry Photo

Jacie is one of my amazing spokesmodels from Cedar Park High School.  She is on the yearbook staff and loves to take photos for all the school events. If you end up in a random photo in the yearbook, Jacie probably took that shot. I love her to pieces – the camera ADORES her. She has an uncanny ability to know exactly what pose and position will look best in photos. When I asked her on her shoot if she practiced posing in front of the mirror, she excitedly said, “Yes!”  So. Awesome. I can’t get enough of Jacie’s pictures. 

Jacie has so many sides to her personality, and she decided for her photos she wanted something edgy and urban, and something soft and natural. She totally rocked both with her outfit choices and looks. I am so proud of her for creating the perfect session to display her personality. We started out with the edgy side in downtown Austin. 
Soon after we headed over to Bull Creek for the softer side. I loved the contrast of the white and black dresses she chose for this one location.
Of course, we had a little silly fun too. 😉
I always try to do a photo progression into the water for these kind of shoots. You don’t want to ruin the hair and makeup too soon! Jacie was a pro. 
Thank you, Jacie, for trusting me with your senior photos. I love having you on the spokesmodel team. You are amazing.
