I’ve had the pleasure of getting to know Pro Cut and Colorist Michelle Sandoval over numerous hair appointments for the past 8 years. When she became owner and operator of her own beauty salon, I was so happy and excited when she asked me to help celebrate this milestone with a professional hair shoot.
Commemorating over 27 years of hard work, she now proudly displays this image along with two others at the 3009 Hair Lounge in Shertz, Texas, featuring her talents on model, Tegan Stanford.
Aranda Royce Hair Collection
From the moment I met Lethane Thomas, owner and CEO of the newly launched Aranda Royce Hair Collection, I understood that helping her reach her branding goals for this new business required more than just exceptional photography.
Lethane had an expectation of trust, and industry resourcefulness to be on equal standing with talent.
During the four meticulous months of pre-production, Lethane and I conceptualized and executed the right looks, consulted with industry professionals, hired the right talent, and formed the team that together ultimately made this project so successful.
Congratulations, Lethane! It has been an honor contributing to your brand thus far, and I look forward to our next project with much anticipation.
Special thanks to our vendors; Pro HMUA Renee Green with On Location Hair and Makeup, Models Elizabeth Erin (pictured) and Ruh’han Vargas, Kloset Envy, and Studio Assistant Taylor Barrier.

Celebrations Bridal and Prom
This editorial-inspired wedding portrait was made possible by Rachel Range and her gorgeous wedding gown from Celebrations Bridal and Prom.
Rachel loved creating these retro bridals in the cool, controlled environment of my studio instead of in the Texas heat! We chose neutral tones of cream and gray for the background and props, complimenting her skin and bringing attention to the dress and those spicy pops of crimson. By choosing two hours of on-set touch ups with Renee, Rachel was able to achieve multiple looks for this session.
The image of the ornate birdcage is now proudly displayed as wall art at Celebrations Bridal and Prom in New Braunfels, Texas.
Jewelry by Jean Ann
One of my favorite experiences was shooting for Jean Ann Knox, an incredibly successful jewelry lady with Premier Designs Inc., based here in New Braunfels, Texas. For over 20 years, Jean Ann has been showing women how to sparkle every season without breaking the bank.
This Americana Summer styled shoot took place poolside at a private location featuring some of Jean Ann’s Independence Day must-haves on model, Alyssa Mangum.
Liz Rische MUA
Best known for her stellar Special FX Makeup in ingenious productions like Loves Her Gun (2013), PhoneHead (2016), and Pornographic Love (2016), and having an extensive background in Theatre Production, Liz has always known a thing or two about creating production value worthy of stage and screen.
Driven to expand her skillset with traditional makeup, we banded together to showcase the softer and more commercial side of Liz Rische MUA with a glamorous fashion-inspired beauty session, featuring the talents of model Kelly Singh.
As expected, Liz pulled out all the stops. Her work is precise, saturated, packs a punch, and it was immense honor to collaborate with one of the most creative and talented people I’ve ever known.
Melinda Adams - Station Creek
Presenting the beautiful and immensely talented Melinda Adams, singer/songwriter of the band Station Creek of Waco, Texas!
The 'Gone Up In Flames' headliner has a voice that moves mountains and a heart of gold to boot. It was an absolute pleasure to listen to her first hand here in my humble studio.
This editorial was definitely inspired by Melinda's own personal style: edgy, rustic, and classically red carpet glam like we see in today's Country Music Stars.
Melinda’s evening look was graciously provided by Ashley Orr, owner of Celebrations Bridal and Prom right here in New Braunfels, Texas.
Sheila Pringle - Edward Jones Investments
When Sheila reached out to me for a new headshot, I saw a powerful woman who deserved a professional business portrait worthy of her legacy.
With Pro Hair and Makeup by Renee Green, same day image selection, retouching and digital delivery, Sheila received the portrait she deserved in no time at all!
