Covid has worn us all out this year, but this is one of those things we can do from 6 feet away that leaves special memories and beautiful pictures. If you have a 2021 grad, I'd love to be their photographer. Check out Lisa McNiel Photography

Beautiful Abby with a flag behind a baseball fence, on a tree swing in a dramatic black prom dress, two graffiti walls that match her shirt and high kick, sweaters that make you want football and hot cocoa, boots, a peaceful lake at sunset, a field, and a fun vintage car.


Variety of senior pictures girl



Sassy, fun Audrey rocking the 70's vibe, the surprise jump, the skateboard with hurdle-jumping legs, a top knot and faux fur, upstaging the sun in her darling white boots, an old train, a sunny field, and a pink prom dress by a carousel.

Caroline drops the drama with this pose, ballet on pointe, a prom slit, back light and plaid skirt, the American flag on a boulder by fresh springs, cutting edge style, super 70s fashion and a stoic city shot.

Teen girl in city



Hope peeks over the stars and stripes sunnies, her shoulder, across a castle wall, up from the grass, over a riverwalk, away from gauze that matches her dress, onto a feature in a red dress, and at the camera with a smile the weekend after she won homecoming queen.

Ileana dazzles in pointe shoes on a ledge, with a flag in front of Falls, in Fashion Forward step downtown, in a sweeping blue skirt by a castle wall, in a shimmery green prom dress, owning the riverwalk and in striking drama from the grass.




Latina senior pictures



Katie shines from under a floppy straw hat, spinning her golden hair, with stars and stripes cap, in a white shift from a vintage train, from the shadows of a chic little eatery, and with a disco ball and groovy shades. 

Teen girl portraits variety



Maegan catches your eye while eating Chick Fil-A in a red prom dress, donning a peace sign, John Lennon glasses and a headband, on a tree swing with a flag scarf, in white or pink or black or green, with art, with a sassy walk, in a field, behind a tree, and on a bridge.

Molly charms from behind a fake fur, on the steps by a chapel, with the breeze in her hair by a fence, from under her aviators, with illusion-bending headlights of a car, in the leaves, beside a stream, under a hat, in a sundress and tennies, and with 9 foot long legs in the lights and old brick of Deep Ellum.

Teen portrait collage


Sabrina hypnotizes framed by a wintery fur, in fashion black on white, with daisies and a staw hat, with little white lights, little yellow lights, and in a prom dress by a carousel, with a flag, in front of a castle, in patched bell-bottoms, in turquoise to match her eyes, and especially in all white.

Sidney wows in hot pink, cute boots by the Dallas skyline, in blue in front of an iconic geometric wall, definitely in a close up, in a casual Tee, with the light in her hair, in a prom dress, stepping out in 70s style, and in stars and stripes.

Portraits of Teen girl studio and urban






Taylor fascinates in red tulle, boots and a little attitude, in a sunny field, a featherly gown by a maroon stingray, by little red berries, in black on white, in pink satin, dramatic patterned shadows, and leaping by a wall made to match her blue outfit.

A Girl and Her Horse - Senior Pictures by Flower Mound Photographer Lisa McNiel


A girl and her horse... If you know any girls who love horses, then that statement alone brings an understanding of the mystical relationship they hold. Chloe is one such girl, and her beautiful horse, Sam, and white puppy, Cooper, had to make an appearance in her senior pictures.

She has all kinds of blue ribbons for equestrian events with her horse, Sam, graduated Marcus High School with honors and currently attends Oklahoma University in Norman. She also achieved the highest honors possible as a girl scout! But a resume doesn't tell one's true story. It's just a snapshot of one aspect of a life. I hope I was able to catch a bit of the spirit and personality of this sweet girl.

Chloe's favorite songs are Knockin’ Boots- Luke Bryan, Mind Your Own Biscuits- Kacey Musgraves and The Hard Way- Turnpike Troubadours.


Her favorite personality traits are that she's kind and outgoing. In addition to competitive horseback riding and Girl Scouts, she was involved in Young Life and Circle of Friends in high school. In her free time, Chloe spends time with family, friends, and horses.



Chloe's favorite quote is Hebrews 11:1 in the Bible - "Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see." And her favorite memory is watching the stars in a truck bed with her friends at camp.













We started out with a family portrait, as they wanted to include their fur children.
