Music is David’s Life

David is a senior at Cypress Lakes High School.  He loves music and has been in band since middle school.     David is a percussionist in the Spartan Band and plays tenors on the drumline.  He is also a member of indoor drumline, and was on the state championship winning drumline in 2013.  He plays snare, tympani, and many other percussion instruments in addition to the tenors.  He is gifted with a good ear for pitch and rhythm and can listen to music and duplicate what he hears. 

When he’s not making music, David enjoys listening to it, especially Chillstep and Classic Rock.  He plans to attend college at University of Texas in Austin and play in the marching band there.   

Best wishes, David in all your musical and other endeavors!  We hope you have a fantastic senior year!

Introducing Briana

We have known Briana for several years since she is a member of band and we volunteer so often with this organization.  However, it is Briana’s friend, Rachel, that invited her to our open house in August and Briana decided she wanted the best senior portraits possible with Nounou Photography.

Although Briana is quiet, she excels at school and is a determined, goal-oriented individual.  She has been a member of the Cypress Lakes HS band for four years and enjoys playing the oboe while acting as a Section Leader this year.  She is also a member of several different clubs and honor societies, such as, Hosa, NHS, Mu Alpha Theta and NEHS.

Briana loves Disney and enjoys music, so it’s only natural that she looks up to Hilary Duff and her beliefs.  She also likes to have fun and even showed off another favorite character,  “Jessie” from Toy Story for Halloween.

Briana was recently accepted to attend Texas A&M University at College Station and we wish her all the best!

Chris, who will graduate with the Langham Creek High School class of 2015, is an enthusiastic and driven young man who works hard to achieve his goals.  He recently lost 85 lbs and has now moved on to other endeavors.     At school, his favorite subjects include math and computer science.  He plans to attend either UT or Texas A&M, majoring in Mechanical Engineering with a minor in Petroleum Engineering.  

Chris plays 1st base for the Langham Creek High School baseball team, and he is willing to share his talents.  Chris loves volunteering with the Langham Creek YMCA and has been there several years.  The YMCA teams up with the  Miracle League, which is specifically designed for children with special needs, to offer every child a chance to play baseball regardless of disabilities, and Chris really enjoys serving in this way. 

 

We at Nounou Photography wish you a great senior year, Chris, and wish you much joy and success in accomplishing all you set out to do in the future.  

 

 

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.
