Bailey | Cinco Ranch High School

When you graduate high school, it’s not only a major milestone, it is the first part of your very own legacy. It’s the story you are telling with your life, and graduation feels like that first page. Bailey is bright and academic, and also very sweet and thoughtful.  I couldn’t wait to do a shoot that celebrated all the amazing facets of this beautiful young lady. To start with, she absolutely loves living here in Houston. It’s a vibrant city filled with art and culture, incredible sports teams, and she fits right into the modern and urban atmosphere. She requested a downtown session to mark her love of the area, and it came out perfectly! As a student, she’s an incredibly talented scholar; earning a national merit commendation, and is highly involved with Cinco Ranch High School’s FFA. Of course, her pursuits don’t end there; she also enjoys philanthropic work, putting in a tremendous amount of hours with the National Charity League, Azalea Chapter. Her church (Tallowood Baptist) is also an integral part of her life, and serves as a cornerstone for so many of her passions and inspiration.

Would you believe that on the very day of this shoot, this beautiful girl received her long-awaited acceptance letter to Texas A&M? She can’t wait to become an Aggie, and was accepted into the prestigious Mays Business School program, with Texas A&M Business Honors and as a Presidential Endowed Scholar. Her dad and grandfather both attended Texas A&M, and so she’s following in some lofty footsteps. As another special touch, we did some images of her in her beloved pink Astros jersey at Minute Maid Park, and she’s holding the little mascot that her dad gave to her mom when they were dating! I really enjoyed the small details (like her Harry Potter books) that encapsulated the pieces of her wonderful personality. Congratulations, Bailey! I know you will be a tremendous success!
