Georgetown High School Drum Major | Dawn Fry Photo |Senior Portraits in Austin

It has been both an honor and a privilege for me to create senior portraits for Georgetown High School’s drum majors for several years in a row. Being a musician myself, (I proudly earned a vocal music education degree in college) I find that I am drawn to creatives and photograph senior portraits for musicians, artists, and theater students more often than seniors with other interests. I guess in some way music and art connects us all, and it’s been said you attract what you love.

This lovely senior from Georgetown High School was on my Elite Spokesmodel team and I am so glad I had the opportunity to get to know her and her family through our many events and photo shoots. Not only did we create senior portraits for her, but we also got to spend the weekend with her and her mom on an amazing creative session retreat, do a mother/daughter session, a family session during our fall fundraiser event, and many other events. It was a joy having her on my team. This year she will embark on a new journey to the University of North Texas, and I know she is destined for great things.

We began Morgan’s session in downtown Austin just off Congress. Her bold patterned dress and converse stood out among the grey tones and city concrete.

Her second outfit included another bold print top with black jeans, complimenting her urban surroundings and showing us her tough side. I love the contrast of the bold patterns and the gritty urban scenes.

I so loved that Morgan went with a clean face and natural hair look. She stayed totally true to her personality and style, and it really made her images a reflection of her amazing personality.

Edgy. Urban. Strong. Morgan exudes all three in her fringed “Free Spirit” tee and combat boots. Love this look!

After sweating our faces off in the city, we headed up to San Gabriel Park in Georgetown for some softer, airy images in nature. While Morgan is strong and fierce, she also has a gentle soul and a heart for the environment. Her off the shoulder “Gypsy Soul” tee and jean shorts were a perfect outfit choice for this background. The light through the trees and flowers complimented her outfit and surrounding elements.

I love this bold red top contrasting against the greenery of the park. Another off the shoulder style, it really looked amazing on her. We captured her beautifully with the wood fence and her furry friend got in on the fun. Pets are always welcome on senior sessions with DFP!

Of course we HAD to get some shots of the letterman jacket! So many of Morgan’s achievements are represented in the patches. It is a huge part of her high school career. After all, this is about capturing and preserving memories!

Did I mention Morgan brought her pets? YES!! 3 beautiful dogs joined us for her senior portrait session. Of course, they all had to wear matching bandanas! I die from the cuteness!

One more outfit change and we headed over to the river for some fun water photos. What senior doesn’t love to splash around the water in a dress? It’s pretty much a tradition!

One final hat tip and we were out of there! Wet, tired, and so full of good memories. Thank you, Morgan, for sharing this important moment of life with me. It was an honor to be the preserver of your high school self. I wish you all the best.

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.

Jenna | Georgetown High School Spokesmodel | Dawn Fry Photo

My first class of 2016 spokesmodel shoot was with the lovely, Jenna, from Georgetown High School.  When I sat down with Jenna, she had a good idea about what she wanted for her photos. We discussed shooting in a small town setting and in the water. After going over the options and her potential outfits, we had a pretty good plan in mind. As always, I wanted to make sure that we captured Jenna’s unique personality and interests. I noticed she hesitated a couple of times, in a manner that suggested there was something she was leaving out. After pressing her a little bit, I found out that Jenna’s horses were a big part of her life, and she really wanted photos of them, but didn’t think it was possible. Not wanting to leave this big part of her life out of the memory of her senior photos, I made sure we took part of her session time to visit the horses and get some pics. I think they ended up being my favorites.:)


Jenna is also into archery, so we made sure to incorporate some strong, gorgeous photos of her with her bow. Her sweet puppy got in on a photo as well. 

I try to encourage all of my clients to bring items that represent their time in high school. Being a part of the marching band was a special activity for Jenna. I loved that she brought her trumpet on her photo shoot. The image of her on the right of this panel hangs in the window of the DFP Studio! I absolutely love it!

Jenna is such a natural in front of the camera. I absolutely love photographing her and I love having her on the spokesmodel team. I can’t wait to see what amazing things she does in the coming years. 
Thank you, Jenna, for having the faith in me to help you capture your every desire for great senior photos! I know you will enjoy these for many, many years!

Team | Dawn Fry Photo | Austin High School Senior Photographer

Being a part of the DFP Spokesmodel team has a lot of perks. Spokesmodels not only get a fun, complimentary, styled session, and an amazing, custom designed senior session, but they also get the opportunity to do other fun shoots throughout the year. This year, some of my class of 2014 spokesmodels got together early one morning for an All-American Girl photo shoot. We started off the morning with everyone dressed in red, white and blue. 

We brought in a gorgeous red truck and my blue Jeep to add some interest – and something to play on. 😉

After the “pretty” shots, it was time to party!! They all changed clothes to something white, and I pulled out the silly string and paint. What happened next was….epic.
