Wow! Can you believe that summer break is almost over? It is hard to imagine that in almost a month school will be starting again and these gorgeous ladies will kick off their senior year!
I am so excited to introduce the other half of my senior squad. These sweet young ladies joined me for an afternoon at The Kemah Boardwalk. It was so hot that their cotton candy melted! ha! ha! Did that phase them? Oh no, they just kept going like true professionals. The weather was predicted to be rainy, so we expected the crowds to be fairly light; nope, it was CROWDED! Did that phase them? Oh no, they just kept on doing their thing and embraced the attention! How could I be so blessed to have these girls on my team?
Since our theme was a bit of a summer carnival-boardwalk style, I felt going with a bright palette of colors would make them pop against the busy the boardwalk. These girls are so much fun and full of character that if they would have worn the most bland shades of tan and had no color at all, they would still rock it!
This group of young ladies are representing 3 different schools. We have Seven Lakes High School, The Houston School for Performing and Visual Arts, and Tompkins High School. They all have different interests, the majority being involved in dance. The most common thread amongst them is their desire to serve. They are all compassionate individuals with hearts of gold.
This years' senior model crew will participate in Project Beauty 360. Project Beauty 360 is an opportunity to demonstrate to their peers what true beauty means to them. It's an opportunity to empower young ladies to recognize the beauty on the inside can stand alone. It will survive the test of time. Standing up for yourself, embracing your differences and recognizing beauty is derived from the soul. They will step out of their comfort zone and allow me to photograph them without any makeup, without the fancy clothing...just them, in an organic setting.
Not only will these young ladies be encouraging others through Project Beauty, they will also participate in another national campaign to help me find a scholarship recipient and award a well deserving senior of a senior session. Details for this much anticipated event will be coming in the next few weeks.
With all that being said, this year will be an incredible year for Nikki Guest Photography, but most importantly these young ladies. Of course, their upcoming senior sessions are going to be so much fun and are truly going to be something modern, different and fun to look see...I consider itlike "icing on the cake" . I am just so proud of these young ladies for making themselves willing to step out of the box with a goal to reflect positivity. They will surely be a catalyst to share their confidence, friendship, support and "true beauty".
Enjoy! As with each session, I couldn't do it without Ashley Carlton. She is the perfect assistant and hair and makeup artist. Ashley-you are amazing! If you are interested in booking a session, please contact me as soon as possible. Class of 2018 only has a handful of sessions available. I am also booking class of 2019. -Nikki
