Dawn Fry Photo Senior Spokesmodels 2013 Styled Sweetheart Session | Austin Senior Photographer

Waaaaaay back in February, when I was still assembling my Senior Spokesmodel team, I had the opportunity to put together a Styled Senior Session for a few of my Crew.  I was fortunate enough to run into the uber-talented, Callie, from Callie Kay Beauty, at a wedding event, and it just so happened she was looking for an opportunity to show off her skillz at the same time I needed a makeup artist for my shoot. She graciously offered up her talents!!  The original date for the shoot happened to be on the one day this year that it SNOWED!!! Thankfully we were able to reschedule and on the last weekend of February, everything came together.

The girls got hair and makeup done – it was so fun to watch them be transformed. 

Callie was amazing with the girls and she made them look absolutely flawless. 

Our theme for the day was SWEETHEART. I had the Crew bring everything they could in red, pink, white and black, and I love some of the clothes and accessories they came up with. Here is Spokesmodel, Kenna, from Westwood High School, in one of the first shots I took.

The hat is totally FABULOUS and it absolutely made my FAV image from her from that day!!! INCREDIBLE!
Despite the clear skies, it was still pretty chilly outside. Thankfully I had some prop blankets for the girls to wrap up in between shots.
They were such good sports!
Spokesmodel, Emily, from Cedar Park High School, did an amazing job with working the parasol into this shot.  I love the pop of pink!
We had some fun with confetti!! Emily did a great job with this one – even though I made her blow it out of her hands about a hundred times! This shot was perfect. 
Last up was the lovely, Courtney, also from Cedar Park High School. It was getting close to sunset and we were really losing the light at this point and needing to work fast. Thankfully, I have had the great pleasure of working with Courtney many times, so she jumped right in and was amazing as usual. I love, love, love this dramatic look on her!
Courtney always looks fabulous.
Just as the sun was sinking into the horizon, I gathered all three girls for a group shot. I think this is my favorite from the day. The are all so different and so beautiful! My red chair worked perfectly for this too. Love that chair! I found it for FREE on Craigslist! WOOT!:)
Many, many thanks to Callie for helping us out and creating three gorgeous looks. We had so much fun!
I can’t wait to show you more of the Spokesmodel team in the next few weeks.
If you are thinking about having senior portraits made, now is the time to secure your date! My fall calendar fills up fast and I only take on a limited number of sessions so that I can give each client the best experience possible.

I’m With The Band | Cedar Park High School Senior Photos

Last month, the weather gods smiled and gave me a gorgeous day for a fun senior session here in Cedar Park.  I met up with Cedar Park High School’s Brice and his super sweet family for some great senior photos, starting at one of my favorite road side attractions, the Ruins.

Brice, who was very quiet and shy at first, opened up and relaxed a lot when he was able to be a little more in his element.  He is a member of the CPHS Timberwolf Band (who just won STATE!!! WOOO HOO!!) so he brought along one of his drums.  I had him pose for me doing what he does best.  How FUN is this shot with the wide angle lens?!?

Oh yeah, he rocked it. 😉
From the Ruins we traveled over to Twin Creeks Country Club to get some shots on their BEAUTIFUL golf course!  We had so much fun cruising around in the golf carts looking for the perfect spots to shoot. And, I didn’t even crash, not once! haha! Though, I did scare a bev cart girl pretty good by almost running her off the cart path…. ok so it’s been a while since I even stepped on a golf course, much less driven on one. But ANYWAY, Brice did a great job and the scenery was so amazing that it made for a fantastic second location. Both of the places we shot for Brice’s senior session were special to him, and they helped tell his story so well. I was very excited about how it all turned out.
Brice, you were awesome and I so enjoyed spending the afternoon with you and your family. I wish you all the best as you move on to college – I know you will continue to ROCK!:)
What’s YOUR story?

Beau Soir | Leander High School Senior Photographer

Beau Soir (Beautiful Evening)

When streams turn pink in the setting sun,
And a slight shudder rushes through the wheat fields,
A plea for happiness seems to rise out of all things
And it climbs up towards the troubled heart.
A plea to relish the charm of life
While there is youth and the evening is fair,
For we pass away, as the wave passes:
The wave to the sea, we to the grave.

I really, really love my job. Have I said that before? Seriously, how many jobs out there let you play around on a beautiful evening, in the water with fun, young, energetic people and capture the beauty that is all around us?  How many jobs are there that allow a person like me the chance to create something beautiful, every day?  Not many, I would say.  And I am so very blessed and thankful that I am able to do these wonderful things and not only make myself happy, but the people around me too.

I want to welcome the lovely Miss Katey back to the Dawn Fry Photo blog! You all met Katey a few months ago when I posted her head shot mini session.  Katey is a senior at Leander High School and one of my amazing Senior Models for the 2010-2011 school year.

Leander High School Senior

Katey is in Drama in school and is very active in the productions throughout the year.  I am so excited for her and proud of her for landing the Head Stage Manager position in her school’s spring musical! Hopefully I will be able to see it (hint, hint Miss Katey – hook me up with the performance dates, ok?) .

I tried to keep her passion in mind when editing these images and I tried to give them a bit of dramatic flare.  I can totally picture the one above on a HUGE canvas. The texture is so beautiful! I may need to get myself one for a studio sample.:)

Katey also made me so happy on this water session by wearing one of my old vocal performance gowns in the water (the title of this post is one of the songs I performed at my senior recital).  It worked perfectly with her amazing eyes and beautiful skin!

These images are from only half of her full senior session. She will be doing an urban senior session next month and I am so excited to get her out on the streets on Austin with all of the cool architecture and scenery.  So, keep checking back for more of Katey in December – I know she is going to rock that session too!

The next two are a couple of my favorites! Katey is such a character and still so beautiful!

Dawn Fry Photo,
