Beautiful Greta in Dallas - Senior Pictures by Photographer Lisa McNiel


Greta is a study in contrasts!

Stylish fashionista and state champion soccer player and runner.

Confident model and humble missionary with a passion for India.

TV royalty (Grandpa Chuck Norris) and hard-working retail salesperson who will help you out at the Shops of Highland Village.

All these made her a blast to photograph, and her funny mom with an easy laugh and a taste for adventure gave me a wonderful memory of photographing Greta in Deep Ellum and Klyde Warren Park!

She just graduated from Grapevine Faith Christian with her twin brother and close friends, and will be heading to Abilene Christian in the Fall.

This "y'all" Texas t-shirt with ripped jeans and rugged cowboy boots is too perfect and repping her favorite state and culture.



A naturally talented model, her intuition on how to pose and spontaneous and modelly facial expressions tell her story.  If you have a letter jacket, don't forget to bring it on your shoot!


How perfect is this mustard yellow lace dress from Anthropologie paired with thigh-high black suede boots and her soft curls?

"Hey Greta, can you just lie down in your new outfit on this filthy street? I like the way your outfit matches the stripes in the road." Greta, "Sure!"

This is what they chose for the 16x20 canvas to go on their wall.


Love the drama of simplicity - no special pose, just a confident girl, relaxed and sun-kissed, in the middle of a busy scene.



As a child of the 70s, I dig this maroon corduroy romper with white blouse and platforms!



Greta and her wonderful mom, Val, who is fiercely loyal and loving toward her family!


Greta was one of my Senior Models and these are from our "Prom Shoot" Cllick on the words to see all the poses and dresses!








Beautiful light and a beautiful girl - there's nothing wrong with that!

Long Blond Hair and a Sweet Personality - Senior Pictures by Lisa McNiel


Paige and her mom are so easy-going, willing to try anything I suggested for lighting and posing in the studio and had a great attitude when we ventured outside in the cold. Fortunately, we were rewarded with gorgeous end of day light, and honestly Paige looks good in any photo!

She played club soccer growing up until she reached middle school and then decided to play volleyball. Paige continued this through her sophomore year in high school and wanted a break from sports. But she didn't give up fitness. She and her dad hit the gym to do Cross Fit together (I promise she didn't tell me about it!) She works at Sonic and will be heading to Texas Tech in Lubbock, Texas in the Fall and is super excited to become a Red Raider!

Simple black top, black books and ripped jeans were perfect for a full length shot which became her 16x20 canvas wrap.

A gorgeous face like that needs a fake fur frame.

I had little lights up in my studio and she used a faux fur jacket for a monochromatic look that went in her Album with many other images.

I love the simplicity of a black dress and a white couch, and again with a black background. She stands out in the simplicity of it all.


She looks like a dream with the lighting below which was featured by a national curator of Senior Pictures on Instagram.



The temps were cold, but the sun was out, because it's Texas.



The Flower Mound Marcus grad looks like sunshine and Summer in the woods with her Tech shirt proudly on display.
