Beautiful Billy Ryan Senior Pictures - by Denton Photographer Lisa McNiel

Emilee Gentry Ryan HS cheer


Family, Friends, and Football - Emilee loves them all. She spends most of her time on Cheer, and her long time boyfriend when she's not in Student Council meetings, studying, or keeping up with National Honor Socity. Denton's Billy Ryan High School's Emilee Gentry was an absolute delight to photograph, expressive, creative, fun, and super easy to work with. Her oversized purple sweater and light blue ripped jeans with suede booties show off her bright blue eyes beautifully.

Her favorite quote is: "Could I get some chips and queso please?" Bahahahaha!

She said she can't really pick out a favorite memory because she has so many wonderful ones that have gotten her here!

If you have a letter jacket, bring them to your senior session!


If you like black and white portraits in your home, let me know.

If you do a Model for a Day session, it's a good idea to bring something white, as it makes your skin color and eyes pop on my white sofa.

Remember when you're looking for Rush head shots, you don't have to go with a humdrum photo, professional lighting and sun in your hair can make your image pop and stand out among the hundreds seen!

If you have blue eyes, bring a light blue top to wear. Emilee's eyes look like butterflies to me.

Please, please, please don't be afraid to show a little personality in your pictures. Real is better than perfect!

A hat and a pair of sunglasses can give you different looks in just a few minutes.

How cute are these black ripped jeans, black deep-cut booties, boho hat, and deep blue loose top?

Wow! This may be my favorite of this blond haired, blue eyed beauty!


Model in a magazine! This romper is so perfect on her!




She made a quick switch to a green top and long green beads which added one more stylish side to this happy girl.

A few candid with her mom and her boyfriend!

In the longest session, we had time to do natural settings as well. This backlit full length shot in the forest is among my faves!

Just a few in her cheerleading outfit with those amazing legs by the lake.


Favorite music is anything by Harry Styles (including his One Direction days)

Favorite personality trait - confidence.

Involved in cheerleading, National Honor Society and Student Council


Her favorite quote is: "Could I get some chips and queso please?"

Senior Pictures with a guitar - Park and Parking Garage Vibe for Musicians - by Photographer Lisa McNiel



I first saw and HEARD Rachel Franks when she was in a middle school production of "Guys and Dolls." My youngest was Sky Masterson, and Rachel was Miss Adelaide. She had a huge voice and convincing acting in this wonderful character role and she was only in the 7th grade!

She continued to develop that wonderful voice and since her purpose in life is to glorify her Creator, I am confident I'll be hearing about her on Christian radio some day, but if not, she will be using her gift to bless and lead worship somewhere! 

These are her favorite songs: You Came (Lazarus) by Bethel Music, Defender by Rita Springer, This is how I fight my battles by Upper Room Music, Take Courage by Kristene DiMarco, Reckless Love by Steffany Gretzinger, and pretty much any music about God, but those are a few of my favs.

Favorite personality trait:
I'm very confident in who God says that i am and I love empowering other girls within my generation to know how beautiful they are called by God in comparison to this world. There is so much power in uniting with the mission front for your own generation of believers.

Favorite quote:
If your opinion of others speaks louder than your love for others, don't wonder why your voice carries no weight. -Carl Lentz

Favorite memory:
My favorite memories come from the female teachers that have inspired me to keep learning over the years and to keep pressing into my faith. I can't pick one, because so many of the ladies that guided me through the roughest years of my life will forever hold such a special place in my heart. My schooling experience socially and with friends has not always been the easiest, but the teachers who have molded me always pushed me to seek after the truth of my own identity, and to stay rooted in who God called me to be.
What I like to do in my free time:
I enjoy playing guitar, piano, drums, and bass. I come from a very musical family, and my love for music has only grown me into who I am today. I also like drawing, painting, making handmade journals to supports my mission work, and going on photography adventures! I am always down to have a talk about deep theology and love exploring the outdoors!


Activities and/or sports I'm involved in:
I am involved in Marcus Choir as the choir historian, a member of the varsity choir, and a member of the all-female a cappella group Fusion. I am also the historian for Marcus Circle of Friends, and a member of NHS, American Sign Language Honor Society, Tri-M Music Honor Society, National Thespian Society, and last year I founded a girls group called Beautifully United. Outside of school, I am heavily involved in my church, serving on the worship team, in the children's ministry, and as a student leader. I had to quit all of my sports in middle school because of my heart problem, but currently I love to rock climb and am up for any adventure thrown my way!

Senior Pictures for a Creative Girl - Grapevine Faith Senior Photographer Lisa McNiel

Gabi's a creative soul who loves Art, photography, and tennis. She enjoys writing, scrapbooking, and like most of us, Netflixing! Her favorite songs are Seven Nation Army by the White Stripes, Oil on Water by Bastille, and Car Radio by Twenty One Pilots.

Her favorite quote is, "The knowledge that you have emerged wiser and stronger from setbacks means that you are, ever after, secure in your ability to survive."

This girl's favorite memory is going to the beach with her family as a child every year. As a parent who organized, packed, drove, listened to the same songs over and over again, and washed sand out of everything, this makes me happy!


Gabi has a radiant smile and loves adventure. She enjoys exploring the world -skiing, cliff jumping, scuba diving, zip lining, plays, and concerts are some of her favorite pastimes. Gabi has, also,always had a creative nature ,which she shows through photography,art and reading. She could find the little white mouse in “ goodnight moon” before she could even talk! Some of our great memories are of going to the beach. Gabi and her sister would play with their grandfather for hours boggy boarding, burying him in the sand and giving him seaweed ‘hair” and snorkeling for shells.
