At Nounou Photography we are always amazed at the amount of talent that today’s high school seniors possess, and Jared, a senior from Langham Creek HS is no exception. Jared “marches to his own beat” and isn’t as easy to read as some of the books that he also enjoys. He is definitely a young man with many talents and a variety of interests.
As a member of band, Jared represents percussion and has played both the marimba and keyboard instruments. Additionally, Jared is a member of LCHS Choir and he really enjoys singing bass. This past fall, the choir was invited to perform with the Houston Symphony in “A Magic Carpet Ride, music from Aladdin” during one of the symphony’s family series concerts. Along with his love for the arts, Jared is also a member of the S.P.A.R.K.’s Club (Special People Assisting Remarkable Kids), NHS, NEHS and Rho Kappa, so he’s willing to help others and he’s very smart!
Jared reads a lot of books, especially fantasy and science fiction, listens to alternative music and also really enjoys video games. He hopes to attend UT Austin, UT Dallas or A&M and major in Computer Science and continue with choir.
Jared, we hope you achieve all your dreams and do indeed one day develop video games for Bethesda Softworks!
Camryn is a senior at Cypress Woods high school and she chose Nounou Photography because she heard from her friends we previously photographed, that we are creative and fun, but also different. Camryn is beautiful but extremely hard on herself and choosy about how she wants others to view her, so we feel honored that Camyrn did so much research for her senior portraits and she still chose Nounou Photography.
At Cy Woods HS, Camryn participates in choir and theater. She has also written and performed her song “Letters” and it is posted in Sound Cloud (https://soundcloud.com/camryn-jerding). With so many musical talents, Camryn has her goals set to attend Belmont University located in Nashville, Tennessee. She plans to be a music business major and one day hopes to be a singer or producer. When asked who inspires her, Camryn says “Adele”. She likes how Adele presents herself positively and she also likes to sing similar music.
While other seniors might be watching tv, playing video games or reading, Camryn is writing songs, paying the piano or her guitar and singing. We know that with her outgoing personality, personal drive and her beautiful smile, we at Nounou Photography believe Camryn will be a future star!
This isn’t the first time we have photographed someone in her family, but it is the first senior session and we were so excited to get to know Elly. As a senior from Stratford High School, Ellly participates in two theater and one choir class. Hopefully, one day Elly can use her love for music and “eye for the stage” to act or direct plays, maybe even work behind the scenes.
Elly is originally from Chicago so she was super excited to watch her beloved Cubs win the World Series this year. Her entire family cheered loudly from Houston… perhaps they will provide the same luck as they now continue to cheer for the Chicago Blackhawks (that’s a hockey team for all of us that don’t follow hockey in the south).
If you know Elly, you would say she is a planner and a goal setter. She also has a great work ethic and she is hoping to continue her education at the University of Houston or Texas State. She always strives to see the good in others “just like her mom”.
Elly, we wish you all the best! We are sure you will succeed given your talents and drive and it will be exciting to see where your future leads!
Finally 2017 has arrived and this year’s class of seniors can officially begin their countdown! We are starting our year off by introducing Cesar, a current senior from Cypress Lakes High School. Cesar is a dedicated member of the Cypress Lakes HS band where he plays the Clarinet and the Bass Clarinet.
Cesar’s favorite subject in school is math, especially geometry. This love for math will surely serve him well with his future career goals of becoming an Aerospace Engineer! Cesar hopes to attend Texas A&M or the University of Houston and major in Aeronautics and Aviation.
For fun, Cesar currently likes to speed along on his skateboard and watch Formula 1 Racing. In the summer, Cesar volunteers at his church during vacation Bible school and helps with elementary aged children. He is also a member of Boy Scouts and regularly volunteers at the TWRC, animal rescue.
We at Nounou Photography wish Cesar all the best and we know that when given the opportunity to make a difference, he definitely will exceed your expectations!
With this blog, we introduce Jimmy, a current senior from Langham Creek High School. We have known Jimmy and his family since he was in elementary school at Lowery. Nounou Photography also had the pleasure of photographing his older sister and we were so happy to work with this family again.
Jimmy loves to run and he has been running cross country since middle school. One of his favorite memories is a run he completed in Galveston along the beautiful seawall. Running is a way for Jimmy to take out his frustrations and to just “zone in” on what he wants he needs to accomplish.
At this time, Jimmy doesn’t know exactly which university he will attend, but he is excited about the possibilities. We wish Jimmy all the best, and hope our paths cross again!
Although we’ve known Marlee for several years, we had lost touch with her and we are so excited she connected with us for her Senior Portraits! She is very comfortable in front of the camera and this is probably a direct result of her comfort on stage and with live performances in theater. Marlee attends Cypress Falls High School and recently returned from a trip to New York, where she was able to see firsthand several Broadway plays.
Magic happens when you get more than one creative, imaginative mind together and during Marlee’s session, she was open to trying a few of our props and “trying out different hats… ummm personalities” actually. This black and white image of Marlee reminds us of something one of Hollywood’s greatest would have created perhaps in the 1940s, made complete with the vintage fur boa.
It’s no surprise that since Marlee loves theater so much, one of her favorite TV shows is Project Runway. This helps get her creative juices flowing when it comes to fashion and she can probably visualize herself in various costumes. In addition to theater, Marlee loves to dance and has also been a member of the Cypress Falls Sky Dancer Drill Team for three years.
Marlee admires Angelina Jolie not only for her talent, but also because she is a caring and giving person. We hope that Marlee achieves her dreams and is indeed one day “in the spotlight” and we can say “we knew her when…” as she makes her mark on the world!
Since we first met Brenna in middle school, we have known she loves animals and she has wanted to be a veterinarian. She has stayed focused on this dream and hopes to attend Texas A&M College Station and begin preparation to achieve this goal.
Brenna is a senior at Cypress Lakes High School and she currently participates in NHS and is the Historian for her FFA club. She was a cheerleader her junior year but has decided to focus more on her studies and future animal with FFA. Although Brenna is very quiet, she is always willing to lend a hand and volunteer. We have seen her volunteer with her parents at many school functions.
For nearly two years (since we photographed her older brother), Brenna has been thinking about what she wanted for her senior portraits. With so much preparation, Brenna wanted everything to be perfect and she was a little nervous when the day actually arrived for her photo shoot. However, with her excitement and preplanning, Brenna’s images are very representative of her activities and personality and we loved creating with her.
We know Brenna will be putting the final touches on her application to Texas A&M University on August 1st and we wish her all the best as she begins her final year of high school. Here’s to the Class of 2017!
