Creative and Talented Danna

Delightful Miss Danna came to us with lots of creative ideas for images, and we had a fun time trying new things with her.  We used a full length mirror as well as paintings and colorful creations Danna had made, and even put paint on her for a super fun artistic shot, so her images are truly unique, and her lovely smile lights them up.  Her creativity isn’t limited to the canvas alone.  She is also fond of cosmetology and excels at playing the flute. 

Danna is a true leader and cares about others.  She serves as a drum major for the Cypress Lakes High Spartan Band.  Danna interacts with and understands other people intuitively.  When Danna makes a friend, it’s for life and she stands by her friends through thick and thin. 

Danna wants to go into Social Psychology and Behavior Analysis.  Danna has lots of options for her college destination, and she is considering Texas Tech, University of Texas at San Antonio, and Texas State. 

One of Danna’s paintings says, “I am infinite”.  Her possibilities are boundless, and her potential is endless.  Whatever path she chooses and whatever she sets her mind to, we know Danna will continue to achieve wonderful things.  Good Luck Danna, and enjoy your senior year!

Samantha, Future Makeup Artist

Our family has known Samantha’s family many years.  Samantha is a swimmer and she swam with our children and we volunteered next to her mom for several years with the Windsong  summer Swim Team.  She is fun, confident and outgoing and her sense of humor made us laugh.  Samantha’s two dogs were also featured in her shoot.  Teddy is a sweet little terrier who is getting up there in years and posed like an old pro.  Roxie is a lively rescue puppy and had lots of energy. 

We were very impressed with Samantha’s makeup.  She did an exceptional job and we told her we could probably send a few seniors who would want their eyes to look as beautiful as hers to her!  She is in Cosmetology at school and we think she has a real gift as a future makeup artist.   

Samantha attends Calvin Nelms Charter School and works at a shoe store.  After high school she plans to go to Cosmetology school, and is leaning toward Paul Mitchell Beauty School.  Her dream job would be to do makeup for Broadway or Hollywood.  Maybe in a few years she’ll be touching up our favorite movie stars.  One of Samantha’s idols is Marilyn Monroe and she admires her sense of fashion and her personality. 

Best wishes Samantha, and may you be chosen to do makeup for the next Marilyn!  Have a fun senior year!

Baseball Loving Blonde, Miss Reagan

This sun-loving and outgoing blonde beauty hails from Cypress Woods High School.   She was referred by one of her best friends Nicole, and they have been friends since middle school days.   She cheers for football and basketball games, but her sport of choice to watch is baseball and she is a big Houston Astros fan.  And by fan we mean passionate devotee.  She keeps a notebook, knows the players’ names, and keeps track of standings.  Two of her favorite players are right fielder George Springer and shortstop Carlos Correa.

Reagan loves music and sings in her high school varsity choir.  If she could sing like anyone, she would love to sing like Carrie Underwood.  She has a white Labrador named Jake who is the most obedient, best behaved dog we have ever met.  He can even pull his tongue in on command, and was quite well-mannered for his portion of the photo shoot. 

Reagan loves math, especially Calculus, and plans to major in Engineering at Texas A&M University. 

We hope the rest of your senior year is amazing, Reagan!  Out hustle, out work, out think, out play, and out last the rest and you will be a champion!

Unwritten Melody

We photographed Miss Melody on a lovely sunny day with a bright blue sky, but this little 5’1” sweetheart outshone both with her beauty, sweetness and charm.  She appears shy at first but when she begins talking she is warm, confident and self-assured.  We think she gets this from her mom!

Melody is a dancer for the Bailadora drill team at Langham Creek High School.  One of her long-term goals is to be a nurse practitioner.  She currently volunteers and shadows in local hospitals, nursing homes and hospice.  After she graduates this spring she hopes to attend either Mary Hardin Baylor or Texas State University.  

She loves to spend time with her family, especially her mother and older sister.  She and her sister are very good friends.   Melody is bilingual and likes visiting extended family in Mexico as often as she can, but she is also a Texas girl at heart, and loves her cowboy boots and country music. 

Melody’s future story is unwritten still but if it’s anything like what she has already underway, it will be a wonderful tale full of caring, music, hard work and friendship.  

Have a wonderful senior year, Melody!  

Hailey loves to see you smile!

Hailey recently moved to Texas from Northern California, and is a senior at Cypress Woods High School.  She is a fun, open-minded, competent young lady with a beautiful smile who knows what she wants out of life. 

Hailey loves Science, and has been accepted to Oklahoma State University.  She will be in Pre-dentistry studying to be an orthodontist.  She hopes to be a part of the sorority Gamma Phi Beta, continuing her family’s legacy. 

During Hailey’s photo shoot we listened to some of her favorite rap music.  She enjoys Big Sean and Drake and we can just imagine her jamming to these as she lifts weights to stay fit.  She also loves astronomy and watching the night sky, unfortunately, the lights are too bright near Houston that she doesn’t get to do this as often as she would like.  With what little spare time Hailey can find, she enjoys watching HGTV’s Property Brothers with her mom and dreaming of all the projects they can do together. 

Keep smiling, Hailey!  We at Nounou Photography wish you all the best and we know your efforts will continue to pay off as you aim for the stars.    

Chelsea and Ryan

It isn’t often that I get the opportunity to photograph such sweet younger children, but on one very hot day this past summer, I was able to create with two very fun, energetic siblings.  This wonderful session was made possible by my delightful assistant, Kathy, as Chelsea and Ryan are her grandchildren.

Chelsea and Ryan were visiting from out of state and Kathy wanted to take this opportunity to get them photographed.  Usually, Ryan is such a ham and loves the camera, but his nap times were off and we had to work a little hard to get him to have some fun.  Chelsea, on the other hand, loved dressing up as Princess Elsa and truly loved the camera – I am told this is opposite behavior for her as well.  This just goes to show, that with kids, you just have to be flexible and be prepared for anything.

I loved meetings these two jewels.  Chelsea is so caring and is eager to please and Ryan adores his older sister and protects her even as her little brother. 

Thanks Mary for sharing your children with me and thank you Kathy for making this all possible.

Best Friends and Seniors Too!

Smriti and Harismitha attend Cy Fair High School and have many shared “favorites” – including each other’s friendship!  They chose our Friendship Safari so that we could photograph both of them during the same session and they could each have fun and make each other comfortable.  While they were both a bit shy about senior portraits, I think you will agree, that the camera loved them and they both are naturally beautiful.

We have photographed Smriti for several years with the Cy Fair Orchestra and since she says that she is very resourceful, we think that’s why she was designated to reach out to us and find out all the details.  She loves Biology and Math, and with this combination she should feel very comfortable and achieve her dream of Pharmaceuticals Research.  When she finds time to read outside of school, Smriti enjoys anything about other cultures and the world news.

Harismitha participates in choir and key club.  She enjoys reading, especially on a rainy day, when you might find her curled up with a realistic fantasy book.  Just like her friend Smriti, Harismitha also loves Biology and Science.  She plans on attending UT or Baylor for Pre-Med and then pursue further education leading to a career as a pediatrician.  Harismitha also enjoys running and participates in 5ks.

Nounou Photography enjoyed spending time photographing both Smriti and Harismitha, and we believe they set high goals for themselves and we can’t wait to see what the future holds for both of them.
