Hello Everyone, 

It is summer and although typically I do not shoot much during the summer, it has been very busy!  Really, the heat in Texas is so hot that the idea of having a senior in full hair and makeup, changing clothes between sets, etc...I sweat just thinking about it!   However, I have a secret weapon.  Her name is Ashley and I swear this girl sprays acrylic or varnish on the faces of the girls, because they maintain awesomeness throughout the session.    That is one reason I chose to have Ashley join me on the sessions, she just keeps makeup in tact, hair on point and can do a change up in 5 minutes flat.  She is truly amazing and such a wonderful partner to have join me on sessions.   

Let's chat about this summer beauty-Meet Elyssa!  Elyssa is a Class of 2017 graduate from The Briarwood School.   Although she graduated in May, it wasn't too late to capture her senior session.    Elyssa shined with her sidekick, "Shiner".  Shiner is a rescue dog that had to be included in the session.  After all, she is so photogenic.   

Elyssa was incredibly active with a variety of activities at The Briarwood.  She has won numerous awards and was recently awarded the Senior Service Award with the National Charity League. 

Now that summer is here, she begins the planning process of heading the Florida Atlantic University.  Can we just feel little sad for her?  NOT!?  Oh my goodness, her school will be in Boca Rotan,  Florida!!  I mean, really?   That is just incredibly cool and I am hopeful that maybe she wants me to do college senior photos on campus one day.   Or on the beach!  :-) 

Those plans can wait for now, let's enjoy Elyssa's session.    These are only a few of my favorites from her session!  Congratulations Elyssa on your accomplishments, I know you will do amazing things in Florida.  xo  Nikki
