Senior Portraits for Alina – Katy Houston Photographer

The school year blew by WAY too fast for me to update you on the gorgeous seniors from the class of 2016, but now it’s time for swimming pools, lemonade and maybe a little slower pace for us to catch up.

These are Alina’s senior portraits.  She is a 2016 graduate of James E Taylor High School in Katy.  In-studio  Hair and makeup by Cintya Velderrain.


Alina played flute in the JETBand, so her instrument became an important part of our portrait session.


When we were first setting up this photography session, Alina’s mom told me that she was on the search for the ultimate perfect dress.


 The bright pink prom dress was absolutely  da bomb!  Brilliant color and , lots of sophisticated sparkle.

She wore it well.  What’s not to love?

 Alina plans to attend Texas State University in the fall where she will study Exercise Science through the school’s Honors College.

 One of my favorite memories of working with this gal was how she and my little black cat, Pearl, became instant besties.

Pearl is already asking when Alina will come back to play again.  I told her that I hope it’s soon… Soon and often.

I first met this young lady when her mother occasionally brought her to the office or to Relay For Life events when we  worked together at the American Cancer Society.

Mom and I kept very loosely in touch through social media over the years, but I don’t believe we had actually seen each other in person since the day I left that job in 2008. That’s when I took the leap to tackle my photography as a full tim venture.  So, you can imagine how surprised and excited I was when she called to ask about creating these portraits.

Brie’s  a voracious reader and adventurous traveler.  She love to escape into a good book, and she loves even more to travel the world.  She’s been to Europe, to China, and several times to work with families and children in a Romanian mission. As I learned about her varied interests, I started gathering items to create this composite storyboard with globes and books.  I really do love how it all came together!

Brienne’s style?  It’s very Bo-Ho Chic, so it’s perfect that she’s the first person ever photographed soaking up the sun in front of our flower fence.

Now that school is out for the summer, Brie’s looking forward to some more amazing summer traveling. When she gets back, she’ll begin her studies at Baylor University where she’ll study Political Science.

I look for her to become a powerful force in bringing good things to the far corners of this world we all live in.
