Erika and her Gorgeous Eyes

On a nearly perfect day, (ok, it was still hot in Houston) we photographed Erika.  She has been planning this session for many months, especially since her mom surprised her by buying one of our gift baskets to help an organization in our community.  Wow, Erika is like a chameleon and can blend and transform almost instantly from soft and sweet dreamer to attitude that will make you shiver!  She is a Langham Creek Bailadora who loves to dance, watch football, and listen to country music, especially Luke Bryant and Hunter Hayes.  The person Erika admires most in the world is her mother. 

Erika says that if she could have her dream occupation, her choice would be a fashion designer. She is definitely creative and talented; she made the beautiful floral headpiece she wore during her photo shoot and she couldn’t have matched her gorgeous eyes any better.  Rumor has it that if she wanted to earn some extra cash, she might be able to make these for friends as we hear she has had several requests! 

Beautiful, intelligent, creative and goal oriented definitely describe Erika.  In high school, her favorite subject is math, and she plans to go to UT or Texas A&M and major in Business Law. 

We hope your senior year is your best year ever, Erika, and that things fall into place for your future just the way you picture them!

A Quinceanera Celebration

Although we have only photographed a few Quinceañera’s, we love this opportunity and time in a young lady’s life.   This important celebration in Mexican culture is a ceremony for a girl’s fifteenth birthday.  Jackie will be turning fifteen in December, and celebrating with her friends and family this life event.

Jackie currently attends Cy Springs High School and is a member of the school’s marching band.  We hope Jackie continues with marching band and enjoys her remaining high school years, but in the meantime, we hope that Jackie has an unforgettable evening and dances the night away in December.

Thanks again Jackie and Evelyn for trusting us to capture these timeless images!

Sunshine on a Cloudy Day, Introducing Tyler

Lawnmowers seemed to follow us everywhere followed by thunder and lightning surrounding us the day of Tyler’s senior photo shoot, but we remained in a bubble of sun and got some great images.  Tyler is a senior this year at Langham Creek High School, where he earned his letterman jacket playing golf, and is a member of the Wolf Pack. 

We’ve known Tyler since he was in preschool, and he’s such a great young man. Tyler is laid back and has an outgoing personality - always looking for some fun,  He enjoys the outdoors, camping, fishing, and wakeboarding. He earned his Eagle Scout award in 2014, and his Eagle service project was designing and building a very large animal cage for the Texas Wildlife Rehabilitation Center.   Tyler has lots of options for his future, and is considering OSU, and TCU, and University of Mississippi to further his education.  He sees himself in construction science, working with engineers. 



Wherever you go, Tyler, may the sun shine on you.  We wish you all the best for your senior year and beyond! 

Maskus Family Portrait

We travelled to the country property of a friend to take photos of the Maskus family.  There were some beautiful trees there.  The family was referred by the McRae family, who did their family portraits with us last year. 

Meet Jerry and Kelsi Maskus, and their children Ashley, Austin, and Brittany.  Austin and Ashley are 21 and attend Texas A&M, and Brittany is a senior at Cypress Ranch High School, where she is a cheerleader with Ashley McRae.  The family recently moved into a new home, where their new portrait will hang over their fireplace mantel.   As children get older and more independent, it becomes harder to get everyone gathered for pictures, so it’s important to take advantage of photo opportunities when they are available.  Best wishes to this lovely family, and may they always find time to spend together. 


Can’t Judge a Book by its Cover

Creativity, new ideas, active and non-conforming come to mind when we think about our senior safari photo shoot with Amanda.  Amanda is a senior at Tomball Memorial High School and if she is anything like she was during her photo shoot at school, her teachers will definitely remember her.  She is extremely talented with a hula hoop; making all of her countless tricks seem effortless.  She is self-taught and finds tossing, spinning and balancing the hoop relaxing – she really can do anything you can imagine with the hula hoop – including spin fire!

In addition to the hula hoop, Amanda knows how to throw poi balls and again is simply fascinating to watch.  It’s as if Amanda is connected with these balls as she tosses, connects and completes routines constantly swinging two balls from ropes.  Just when you think you might have Amanda figured out, guess again; she is intelligent, has strong opinions and loves to be “just a girl”.  She is beautiful, edgy, not your average senior and we loved working with her and creating one of a kind images with her.

We hope Amanda pursues her dreams and we hope that we get to watch her grow – look out world; she can accomplish whatever she puts her mind to!

Defied the August heat and Still Beautiful!

We haven’t forgotten to blog, we were simply super busy in August photographing seniors before school started and then getting ready for school ourselves… yes, multi-tasking seems to be our daily life!  However, we couldn’t keep Ms. Tamra a secret any longer!

Tamra is a senior at Langham Creek High School and proudly dances with the champion Bailadoras.  Although Tamra is outgoing and used to being in front of the crowds, she was quite jittery about her senior portraits; but just like a natural, she shoot off the nerves and the camera loved her!  Strawberry blond hair, hazel eyes and wonderful skin is all the camera could see – even though it was in the high 90s with 70% humidity on a typical August day in Houston.

We enjoyed Tamra’s senior safari photo shoot.  The entire time, we kept telling her that she looked like a “movie star” and that she is very “regal” – which was all confirmed as soon as we looked at her images back in the studio!  Let’s face it, Tamra simply has that “Je ne sais crois” that everyone wishes for.  Not only is Tamra beautiful on the outside, she has an amazing personality and bright future ahead of her. 

We wish her all the best as she continues her senior year and pursues her interest in Texas Tech!   

Senior Saturday 2015

Senior Saturday marks the beginning of another graduation class – in this case we introduced our studio to the Class of 2015! As always our “Fun Photo Booth” allowed for lots of creativity and crazy fun. The pictures below cannot do a better job of proving our point!

Nounou Photography would like to say a huge THANK YOU to our Class of 2015 Senior C.R.E.W. members and their parents for supporting this annual event. The C.R.E.W. members invited their friends and were in charge of making sure everyone who came left with a smile. Nounou Photography also mailed flyers to the seniors in both Cy Fair ISD and Katy ISD announcing our annual discounts for a senior photo session scheduled during their senior year. As always, while the C.R.E.W. kept the party going, Nounou Photography representatives were available to answer questions and show our outstanding line of products to all that attended.

Although we scheduled many sessions – some even into March – we still have dates available and we are still offering discounts off of your choice of a senior portrait session. Please call the studio at 713-927-5842 to inquire about the specials and available dates.

Nounou Photography only photographs a select number of seniors every year…so don’t miss out on your opportunity to receive FUN and CUSTOM senior portraits!
