Headshots & More for a Maven of Teas & Spices – Katy Houston Photographer

I was so pleased to work with Shelly. She managed to capture the true essence of who I am and what my company means to me. Both my company and I are fun, playful, and creative. I think my pictures say exactly that without any words at all. At Three Lumps of Sugar we create and sell teas, spices, and artisan sugars and salts for bartending. Our images need to appeal to those who would purchase our products.

Senior Portraits for Garrett – Katy Houston Photographer

This is Garrett – Class of 2017 at Cinco Ranch High School.

When we initially set up his Senior Portrait session, I knew right away that photographing him with his shiny red pickup truck would become a major part of our plan.

He showed up and there wasn’t a speck of dust on that vehicle.  If his mom hadn’t told me  during our pre-session planning consultation that he and his friends  love to take it out mudding, I never would have guessed it.

 That  mudding sounds like so much fun!  I really wish I could have gone along to experience the adrenaline-rush they talked about, but we kept the vehicle clean during our time together. 2017-03-16_0004We saved the truck for the end of our session so that we’d stand the chances of a good sunset or at least low, directional sunlight – and when we saw that angry  cloudy sky, we knew we were in for a  killer perfect image — and we certainly got  it.

Garrett’s also an accomplished athlete who has enjoyed playing LaCrosse with the Katy Cavaliers for the past seven seasons.

For fun, he also enjoys snow skiing, water skiing, hiking, and riding his dirt bike on trails.  He and his friends like to wrap up their fun adventure-filled days  building bonfires and just hanging out.

Congratulations on your upcoming graduation, Garrett.  I have  thoroughly enjoyed photographing you and getting to know you and your mom this year. Send me a post-card  when you get to Colorado, won’t you?

Senior Portraits for Nicholas – Katy Houston Photographer

Meet Nicholas. He’s a Senior at Taylor High School here in Katy, and an all-around great guy! He’s got so many unique activities and interests, and it was fun to capture the essence of this very special time in his life.  C’mon, let’s get to know a little bit about him.  You’re going to like him almost as much as I do.

2017-02-07_0009

I’ve been able to photograph Nicholas several times over the past couple of years, and am always impressed with him.  Every time we meet I learn something new about him and his many interests.  Of course, I’m a sucker for horses, so when he first  introduced me to Smokey I knew I’d be smitten with just one rub on that soft velvet nose …. Oh, wait … this is supposed to be about Nicholas, not Smokey.

But oh… SMOKEY!

And then, there’s his gorgeous Australian Shepherd, Chief.   That dog is going to truly miss Nicholas when he leaves for college. 2017-02-07_0007

Only four percent of the Boy Scouts  earn their Eagle Scout Award, but Nicholas was one of them. He fulfilled extensive  requirements in leadership, service, and outdoor skills to achieve this high honor.

And to top it all off, Nicholas is also a very creative artist working with multiple media.  His favorite works include  a stiff-cast shirt adorned with soda-pop can tab chainmaille, a golden sculpted hand, and a truly intricate cutout book. 2017-02-07_0002

One more thing– Nicholas is a fabulous big brother!

Naturally some of his younger siblings wanted to pop in for a moment or two to be photographed with him. None of them are getting any younger, so it won’t take long before they realize how very special these treasured prints will be.

2017-02-07_0006

Congratulations on your upcoming graduation, Nicholas. You have so much going for you. I can’t wait to see what you do in the years to come. 2017-02-07_0010

Mireille|Seven Lakes High School|Senior Portraits

 Meet Mireille, Seven Lakes High School Class of 2017 — Soccer Player Extraordinaire and a girl  with a heart of gold and a penchant for Converse All Stars.

 2017-01-12_0004

Mireille’s style is natural and casual, so her entire session focused on a loose laid-back look — and of course her athleticism.

She plays for her school as well as  a competitive league team, so she spends most weekends on the road for tournaments.

A lot of things will change for her after graduation, but this athlete is not through with her game. She’s already signed on to play for University of Louisiana in Lafayette where she will attend classes in the fall.

MY UNUSUAL TALENT: I can juggle a ball on my head.

2017-01-12_0005

Known in the school halls for wearing her Converse All Stars nearly every day, and she’s got quite a collection of the funky retro-hi-top sneakers.  She brought several pairs with her to her session, and we had a great time working them into nearly every portrait setting — at least for one frame.

2017-01-12_0001

Mireille’s also very involved in the school’s PALS program where she and her colleagues serve as mentors for younger students, helping them thrive in their studies but more importantly in a social setting.  You can bet she’s made a big difference for the kids she’s worked with. 2017-01-12_0006

I LOVED working with you, Mireille!  You are a quiet and gentle soul with a fierce spirit. Let no one extinguish your fire.
