Eat, Sleep, Play Volleyball…

Marissa is a high-achiever in many ways!  She graduated a semester early from Langham Creek High School just so she could play Volleyball at Texas State University.  Marissa is an excellent volleyball player and she attributes her success to her family’s support and her coaches training – of course her height is genetic and this helps too.

Nounou Photography has had the pleasure of photographing Marissa’s two older siblings, Carter and Brady.  It was fun to finally meet Marissa and to see some insight into her current college life.  Of course she shared that college is harder than high school, but she also said she likes it so much better  – no surprises there!  She is excited, however, that she still gets to return to LCHS and attend prom with her friends and continue to create those last high school memories!

Marissa is definitely a team player and has helped the Texas State Bobcats Volleyball Team win several victories!  We wish her all the best as she continues with her studies at TSU and plays the sport she loves – Go Bobcats!

Portraits are more than just a Pretty Picture

Portraits are more than just a pretty picture… each image is unique art, created by me to make each client feel confident in their natural beauty.

Once upon a time, everyone’s senior portrait looked the same – but not today. Now, high school seniors are seeking a creative approach to this time-honored tradition. While some high schools have a “contract” vendor for senior portraits, many parents and students are selecting their own photographer.

Deciding which professional photographer should capture your once baby and now “all grown up” senior, can be a tough decision. Here at Nounou Photography, my goal is to allow each customer to enjoy this milestone, while I capture the memories and do all the work.

A Nounou Portrait and custom design work, definitely stands out from the rest!

Last BUT not least, Chase – Class of 2015

I’m not sure how to start this blog because Chase is my son and of course I could go all “mommyish”, but for his sake I’ll try to remain a photographer.  Photographing one’s kids is difficult, in my opinion, because they don’t want to be photographed at all and can think of a million excuses that all end with “not today”.  However, Chase did have some ideas and I enjoyed creating with him when he allowed me to and we found a couple of nice days despite all the rain that we have had this spring to complete his senior portraits.

Chase has always been able to “light up a room” and during his high school years he participated in many activities and showed leadership for multiple clubs and organizations.  During his three years in high school band, Chase played percussion and tuba and went to state with the Cypress Lakes Drumline.  As the main character that acted out the mad scientist role, Chase performed impeccably and the drumline marched and played in sync – combined they placed first in state.  Chase was also the band president his junior year.  For three years, Chase participated in Step Team and all three years the team took first place at the district competition!  As a cheerleader for two years, Chase was on the team when the first males were allowed to cheer at the high school.  In addition, Chase made All American Cheerleader his senior year and was able to cheer in the London, New Year’s Eve parade.   Also, Chase participated in NHS, NEHS (English Honor Society), Mu Alpha Theta (Math Honor Society), SNHS (Science Honor Society),  and Key Club.  He volunteered at many events and his senior year was accepted into the Junior Rodeo Committee, so he will continue this family tradition of volunteering with the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo.

By encouraging others to do their best, Chase is a team player and is always finding the positive in difficult situations.  He has proven himself to be a mature, young adult in high school and we hope he continues to be a positive impact on others in college and throughout life.

Chase had a difficult decision to make for his choice of college, but after a lot of thought, he has chosen to attend the University of Oklahoma, in Norman, Oklahoma and will be pursuing a major in Petroleum Engineering.  Officially, we are now a “family divided” and the Red River Rivalry will become another tradition we will embrace.

Beautiful and Diverse, Here’s Miss Courtney!

Courtney graduates this spring from Cypress Falls High School.  Her preferred subject is Aquatic Science, and she loves reading.  Some of her favorite books are Hunger Games, Twilight and the Divergent series,  but she is always open to a good recommendation.   Courtney has played volleyball for over 8 years both for her high school and for Houston Skyline Juniors club, and is a member of Cypress Belles which is affiliated with the National Charity League.

Her favorite colors are cooler colors, especially shades of blue, purple, and green.  Her favorite music genre is country music, and when we asked which famous personality she admires most, she answered Carrie Underwood, because she is pretty but stays respectful to others.  Courtney is a bit of a country girl herself and has a horse of her own named Ziggy.  She likes Western riding for pleasure.

After graduation, Courtney will attend Stephen F. Austin University, Her major is still undecided (so many choices!)  but she would like to buy and sell horses in the future.  If she could have her dream job, it would involve travelling the world.  Courtney, we at Nounou Photography hope that in all your future travels, both near and far, you will be happy and successful in your efforts.

Introducing Taylor

As we’re finishing our Class of 2015 seniors, Taylor reached out to us for her senior portraits.  Taylor’s mom remembered us from photographing her when she was in 8th grade and participated in Cotillion and we were the event photographer – great memory mom!

Taylor currently attends Langham Creek High School and also saw our program ad for the Mr. Lobo contest and put it all together when she loved our senior portraits.

Thanks Taylor for remembering Nounou Photography and allowing us to capture your senior portraits.  We wish you all the best as you pursue your Bachelor’s degree from Texas A&M.

Caring, Country and Christian, The New “3 C’s”

Kaitlyn is graduating from Cypress Woods High School with the Class of 2015!  While attending high school she has been a member of the Crimson Cadette dance team and is a member of the yearbook staff.  She loves to dance and has spent 14 years taking dance instructions, mostly from APAC.  Although Kaitlyn would sometimes like to be more humorous, she is usually very serious and is most proud of her personal choice to be a Christian.

Last summer Kaitlyn traveled to Costa Rica to help others less fortunate and she gained so much from this trip.  She attends church at The Met and really admires Miss Hannah, her Life Group Leader and hopes to one day be able to inspire others as Miss Hannah encourages her.  If Kaitlyn could do anything she wanted to with her life, she dreams of being a missionary!

We had a wonderful time photographing Kaitlyn in the country and we know that she will add a lot of sunshine and smiles to the campus of Ole Miss, the University of Mississippi.  Kaitlyn, all of us at Nounou Photography wish you all the best and we certainly have all the confidence in you that you will meet your goal to complete your degree in accounting and one day become a CPA!
