Bright, Happy Cheerleader from Denton - Senior Pictures by Photographer Lisa McNIel















Brooke is SUCH an interesting person! She loves to talk to people and get to know them, especially older
and wiser people. She graduated Billy Ryan High school in May having been a Varsity Cheerleader,
learning sign language, and playing the piano. In her free time she watches TV like the rest of us,
but also cooks, plays the piano, listens to music, and watches makeup tutorials.
Her favorite memory is competitive cheer and her favorite quote is, "It's the oldest story in the world.
One day you're 17 and planning for someday, and then quietly without ever really noticing, someday is today.
And then that someday is yesterday, and this is your life."

Mom's perspective
Oh this sweet and beautiful child of mine...what can I say? My earliest memories of her is that she loved to sing and was a chatterbox. When she first began to talk, her brother (3 years older) stopped because she talked for the both of them! I think that's why she wants to pursue a career in sales. She has a gift to make people feel comfortable and I know she will excel in that field.
Brooke is extremely athletic and is a varsity cheerleader and competitive cheerleader. She shines on the floor and has won many awards for cheerleading. She is loved by her teammates and coaches and I can see her working as a coach or judge in the future.
Brooke made up her mind to attend SMU a few years ago after touring the campus. No other college was on her list. I encouraged her to apply other places, but nothing was going to keep her out of SMU despite having a little above average grades and SAT scores. She put it out in the universe and prayed about it for years and was accepted! When she puts her mind to something, there is no stopping her!
Brooke has avoided a lot of high school pressures and has kept her strong faith in Jesus first. She spent years playing the piano for the youth worship team despite only taking lessons for 2 years.
Her father and I are so proud of her, She's grown into a beautiful young woman inside and out and while she's trying to figure out this transition from high school to beyond, I know she will succeed

Soccer and Football Senior Pictures by Dallas Photographer Lisa McNiel


We are truly blessed to be raising such a kind, considerate and polite son. He is fiercely loyal and consistently puts others before himself. He is passionate about his relationship with Christ and making sure others know about God's love for them. It has been amazing to see this shy boy reach so many of his peers. He is a friend to many vs having one group of friends and his allegiance to Grapevine Faith (and the honor he believes it is to represent it and God in athletics, creative arts and student organizations) is amazing. Teachers refer to him as a silent leader - one who guides others through his actions and knows how/when words are needed. He is fun-loving and his smile in contagious. He is determined, has a work ethic that is beyond words and he is a beast on the soccer pitch. I've heard peers chuckle in the stands....THAT'S our Chaplain! But it is all a result of his determination not to let teammates down, to represent God with the gifts he's been give and due to countless hours of practice. He pushed himself to come back from a football injury this year (2 fractured vertebrae) so he would be able to play when district play began for soccer. He did not want to let his team down and his hard work has paid off. He's been recognized at the district and state level for both football (kicker and punter) and in his main sport of soccer. Soccer: He's been newcomer of the year, defensive player of the year and district MVP (jr and sr years). He's also been named to 1st all-district team every year in HS and 1st or 2nd all-state team each year, plus was academic all-state this year. He has played club soccer at a high level, just finishing that portion of his soccer career. The team's last ranking was #8 in the nation. What a ride it has been with our only child! 

Price graduated from Grapevine Faith High school where he was Student Body Chaplain, NHS Chaplain, Soccer Captain and Homecoming King. He attends RockPointe Church in Flower Mound and will continue playing soccer in college at UMHB.

Senior Pictures of a Joyful Dallas Girl by Photographer Lisa McNiel

Kamryn graduated Grapevine Faith where she was captain of her Varsity Cheer Squad. She plans to attend Baylor. She loves the Lord big time and shares her love for Christ with others. She was in the Musical Shrek earlier this year.

She loves country music, and the best way to describe her is "joyful." That's one of the many things her friends love about her. She enjoys reading and hanging out with her family and her favorite quote is:
Esther 4:14 Perhaps this is the moment for which you have been created.

Kamryn's favorite memory is when her sisters and her made up a dance in their old rent house and now randomly, when they see each other, they still do that dance, and makes her happy!

Senior Pictures of Handsome Max, Cars and Football, by Dallas Photographer Lisa McNiel



Pressure is an interesting thing. It either refines or destroys. We see it every day in objects and in people. It makes diamonds and crushes tanks. It batters you or purifies you.

I can't imagine being Chuck Norris's son or grandson, but Max is the only son of Chuck's son and they all enjoy a warm, close relationship and have grown in their faith together. 

It seems Max inherited his grandpa (and dad's) Bad-A approach when it comes to athletics, specifically football. #42 has been a favorite to watch at Grapevine Faith, especially his junior year when their team took the state title. He's been described as "kind, funny, smart, loving, creative, thoughtful, loves his family and the Lord."

I think he looks like a blond Elvis in this photo with the yellow muscle cars.




This is how his mom describes him: 
Max has the biggest heart and is not afraid to show it. Always , always gives his mom and dad a hug and says he loves us right in front of his friends. He Even would stop on his way out from the locker room heading to the field for that hug. But once on the field that mild manner disappears! 
He is tough on the football field as a middle linebacker and set many records for tackles! He helped his team win the state championship his jr year. A memory he will never forget. 
He is a protective brother to his older sister and twin sister. 
Max will be attending the University of North Texas and will study business /entrepreneurship. 


Max's favorite quote is:
Psalms 46:10
“Be still, and know that I am God;    I will be exalted among the nations,    I will be exalted in the earth.”


His twin sister and best bud, Greta, came along for moral support. You can see her blog by clicking Senior Pictures Dallas.


His favorite all time memory is winning the State Championship in Football. A feeling he will never forget.
