Avery and Emma | Katy, Texas

Twins Avery and Emma just recently graduated from Taylor High School in Katy, Texas, and I am so grateful they asked me to help commemorate this time in their lives…and wow, do they have accomplishments to celebrate! In addition to being really fun to be around, both girls are National Merit commended, earned a PERFECT score on their ACTs, and are recipients of the President’s Education Award. They have both received the University of Texas Austin Cockrell School of Engineering scholarship as well as the Taylor High School Athletic Booster Club scholarship among others. When they are not killing it academically, they are busy with a variety of activities, including varsity soccer, cross country, and the poetry club. Such well-rounded and driven students, and they are also always willing to give back to others and their communities on top of these many accolades. In fact, they were recently among 90 young men and women who were honored at the Katy ISD Award of Excellence dinner, which recognizes outstanding seniors in the district. The pair will be attending the University of Texas -Austin in the fall and will be majoring in engineering. 

Doing a session for twins is an exciting and fun challenge. I always strive to show off the individual personalities, because even though these two are a closely-knit duo that share that unique twin bond, I know they also have an individuality and spark of their own! To capture their personalities best, I chose 3 different locations around Katy, including a lovely wooded area, a more urban location, and then a beautiful open field of flowers.  Of course, we also included some photos of their Longhorn tees and the banner was the perfect addition. This session was made even more special as it was the twins 18th birthday!

What a treasure these two are, to their family and friends and to the rest of the world. I am so lucky to know them and their sweet family, and I can’t wait to see their continued contributions to their communities as they head off to college.
