Keep your face to the sunshine - Anahuac senior portraits

Anahuac senior portraits--

"Keep your face to the sunshine and you cannot see the shadows. It's what sunflowers do!"

Early last fall, when Madelyne and I began planning her senior portraits, she had two main requests for her portraits: an old truck and sunflowers. I do my best to make each custom portrait session the best that it can be, but sometimes it requires a bit of creativity. Since fields of sunflowers are not typical of the Houston-area, and I don't own an old truck, I wasn't sure if I could meet the requests. Through a few favors and answered prayers, we made it happen. Of course, I pulled out a few extra stops for my cousin too :) 

A high school friend, who responded to my Facebook request for an old truck, provided this fabulous Ford. Don't let that patina paint job fool you for a second. Under the hood, this truck is in pristine condition.

An announcement of Madelyne's acceptance to Texas A&M was included in the session too. Our family is certainly proud to have another college-bound senior, and if our Papa was still here, he'd be beaming to have an Aggie granddaughter. Gig 'em!

To complete the request for sunflowers, we used a few silk flowers for props. A tiny field of yellow wildflowers next to a church parking lot made the perfect backdrop.

An old Ford tractor that sits behind the home where our grandmother grew up, was another great addition to the rustic look of Madelyne's portraits. I love the blue dress on blue tractor color combination.

Madelyne enjoyed a long-run as an AHS cheerleader, ending her cheer career as captain of the squad. 

Portraits along the bay bank of our grandparents' home, including a few with a killer sunset, wrapped up Madelyne's senior portrait session. It's always an honor to step behind my camera to capture a few moments in a life, and even more sweet when it's making portraits of my own family members.

Looking forward to seeing what God has in store for your future, Madelyne! Happy less than two months!
