2020 Senior Model Street Team | Frisco Senior Photographer

With all of our crazy schedules, there was no way for all 19 of my Senior Model Street Team members to be at the same shoot on the same day for headshots.

I love seeing a teenage boy who has come to the session reluctantly with his feet dragging, and ending the evening saying, "Yeah, that was kinda fun."
