A few years ago we had the pleasure of photographing Brice’s brother Courtland who was a senior at Fort Worth Christian Academy. Now it’s his turn! Join us below as we take a look at several of his senior portraits from downtown Dallas and at the gym of his high school in Trophy Club Texas.
Our first stop in Brice’s two-day senior portraits was at the Byron Nelson High School gym in Trophy Club Tx. What a beautiful school that is. We have had a few other seniors from Byron Nelson but this was our first photoshoot that took place right at the school.
The blue of the gym, the finished hardwood floors, and the unique landing of their bleachers provided a lot of spots for us to work. Brice looked sharp in his two outfits. One was a checker-patterned blue suit with a matching light blue shirt and maroon tie. The other was a comfortable-looking jogging outfit with matching pants and a hoody from Ralph Lauren.
I love the swagger and energy of the smile in this photo as we had him do some action-dribbling shots inside the gym. Gyms can be tricky for photos because they are much darker to our cameras than they might appear to our eyes.
Luckily, we pride ourselves on being experts in lighting for this very reason. We can create our own light in these situations.
The blue colored logo of the Byron Nelson Bobcats on the basketball court matched perfectly with his relaxed Ralph Lauren jogging suit. He looks like he is ready to star in their new ad campaign.
For Brice’s second day of senior pictures, we went into downtown Dallas to some familiar areas. You will recall seeing his brother’s photos taken in some of these places as well as we carved out some new locations to make Brice’s photos his own.
It’s been a great year for siblings. We have had 6 seniors this year where we have had their younger brother or sister come by for their senior pictures. It’s always great to see the family again.
These two photos would make a really great wall art collection with both pieces hanging next to each other on the wall.
I don’t know what this building actually is. Apartments maybe? But we use it all the time for it’s classic rounded corner and brick work. Brice looks like he is ready for the cover of GQ in this fashion inspired shot.
We find random things on our walk through downtown that provide a nice luxurious styling to our well-dressed seniors. By creating shots and backgrounds as we go, no two senior photoshoots look the same. Even when we are visiting a lot of the same areas.
For Brice’s second outfit downtown we have this very stylish yet relaxed white suit option. It features a knitted hoody for a shirt and finishes the outfit with a pair of brown shoes that work perfectly with the outfit. This is a new take on an old spot for us. This is the first time that I have been down in Thanksgiving Plaza and they have had these teal blue table and chairs. The water behind him for whatever reason was bringing a matching teal that I thought would make a great photo. The crossing of the leg is the pose that really brings this photo home and makes it one of my favorites for the shoot.
Do you love what you see in Brice’s photos and are ready to book your own? Whether you are a Byron Nelson Senior or go to any other school in the DFW area, we can help and can’t wait to hear from you.
