Latest and Greatest

We love showing off our seniors!  Take a peek at what we've been up to lately and meet some of our fabulous clients.  

Lili, Westlake High School class of 2018 {Austin Senior Photographer}

Lili has one of the coolest roles at Westlake High School!  She is the mascot, "Queso" and was voted as the mascot with the most leadership skills and won a plaque and ribbon. She is also the president of an organization called Venture Crew, a co-ed scouting group that learns teamwork and leadership skills.  Lili is a tiny package with a big personality and I absolutely love her style.  And I always appreciate a girl who can pull off amazing shoes like Lili can.   For Lili, the shoes are the most important part of the outfit and I agree whole heartedly. She rocked her senior session.

Olivia, Westlake High School senior, class of 2018 {Austin Senior Photographer}

I am so excited to show off our first senior of 2018!  Olivia is such an accomplished senior that all the colleges she applies to should snatch her up immediately!  Not only is she a member of National Honor Society and Westlake's Hyline varsity dance team, she is a counselor at Camp Longhorn, president of GETMAD (Girls Energized Towards Making a Difference), secretary of the Newcomers Entering Westlake club, a member of the Social Emotional Leadership Committee, Girls Education Organization club, National Honor Society club, AND Fellowship of Christian Athletes.  She has contributed countless hours of community service to each of these organizations while also volunteering with Mobile Loaves and Fishes, Beyond Batten Disease Foundation, and The Settlement Home, to name a few.  Olivia has a special interest in Sports Therapy and injury prevention and recovery.  I know she is going to do AMAZING things in the future.  Meeting and photographing girls like Olivia is such a blessing and honor. I just love her heart.  

Savannah, Lake Travis High School class of 2017 | {Austin Senior Portrait Photographer}

I'm so excited to share Savannah's senior portraits!  Savannah was our last 2017 senior this year!  She is a volleyball player from Lake Travis High School and you know I'm partial to volleyball players. :)  Savannah has also been involved in National Honor Society (smart girls rock!), student council, and she enjoys photography!  Savannah wanted a natural look and Shawn delivered with effortless makeup and hair that was just stunning!  Savannah plans to attend the University of Colorado and will be enjoying beautiful Boulder this fall.  Texas will miss you, Savannah.  Remember... you can take the girl out of Texas but you can't take Texas out of the girl.  

Olivia, Lake Travis High School class of 2017 {Austin Senior Photographer}

I am so pleased to introduce Olivia, a Lake Travis senior and member of the Cavalettes.  Olivia will be attending OU in the Fall, so those Oklahoma folks had better get ready for some Texas sass!  She is friendly, bubbly, and just a very fun person to be around.  I loved this photo session so much, and I think it shows in the photos.  Olivia's mom, Jenny, hopped in one too.  I just love it when a mom wants a photo with her girl.  xoxo 

Celestina, Bowie High School class of 2017 {Austin Senior Photographer}

I am so pleased to introduce Celestina, a senior at Bowie High School.  Celestina will be attending St. Edwards University in Austin this Fall!  St. Ed's is lucky to have this sweet girl among their ranks next year!  I just loved that Celestina wanted to have water incorporated into her photo session, and I'm always game for getting into the river to make my clients' dreams a reality.  

Cammie, Lake Travis High School class of 2017 {Austin Senior Photographer}

Cammie is a vivacious senior from Lake Travis High School.  She is planning to attend the University of Texas at Austin and I just loved her tribute to Matthew McConaughey in her burnt orange shirt for the last look of the day.  We traveled all over Wimberley, TX for her senior portrait session and I LOVE how her photos turned out!    

Amy, Barbers Hill High School class of 2017 {Texas Senior Photographer}

I was so honored when Amy chose me to be her senior photographer!  She drove 3 hours from the Baytown area to Wimberley for her portrait session!  Her photos turned out so beautiful, and her mom was VERY happy.  Amy is the Co-Captain of her varsity tennis team, a member of  the National Honors Society, and volunteers with an organization called PALS (Peer Assistance and Leadership) providing community service and mentoring for kids within her school district.  She plans to attend the University of Texas in Austin this Fall.  Hook 'Em!  

Annie, Lake Travis High School class of 2017 {Austin Senior Photographer}

I am so excited to introduce Annie, a senior at Lake Travis High School.  Annie is a member of the state champion Cavalettes and plans to attend Texas A&M.  She is considering a career in Occupational Therapy.  Annie has such natural beauty and a sweet personality to match.  She was my first senior to photograph since I moved to Wimberley, TX and let me tell you, Wimberley did not disappoint as a gorgeous location for senior photos!  I'm so excited about this new chapter in our business!

Sydney, Dripping Springs High School class of 2017 | {Austin Senior Pictures}

Do you remember Sydney and her sister from their fabulous summer photoshoot?  Well, I think her senior photoshoot topped it!  Sydney wanted her senior session to reflect her personality and style... and I think we achieved that!  We took her photos in downtown Dripping Springs, which is just the cutest area and gave us so many different looks in a tiny radius.  Sydney is bound for the University of Alabama this fall so we had to get a little Texas flair for her to remember where her heart lies.  Sydney's favorite saying is "be fearless in the pursuit of what sets your soul on fire" and I know she is going to do amazing things!  


Tori, Wimberley High School class of 2017 | {Austin Senior Portrait Photographer}

Please meet Tori, a senior at Wimberley High School.  Tori is near and dear to my heart because she was one of the first girls to befriend my oldest daughter when she transferred to Wimberley this year as a brand new Freshman.  Tori is one of those special girls who is nice to everyone, and her smile lights up the room.  She played volleyball, as well as participating in the Peer Assistance and Leadership program at WHS.  She hasn't chosen her college yet, but she plans to major in Psychology.  For Tori's session, we decided to keep it local by starting in Buda and ending in Driftwood.  I just love the variety in backdrops and light we achieved on her special day!  Also, you'd never guess that we took these photos in early January!  The following day a cold front blew through, but on Tori's session day it was beautiful warm skies.  


Just a small town girl | {Teen and Tween Photography}

The girls and I visited my grandma (their great-grandma) in my tiny Southwest Kansas hometown this past week.  We had about an hour to kill while Grandma went to an appointment, so I decided a mini photoshoot by the grain bins was a good idea.  It just goes to show that a great photo location can literally be found anywhere.  

Madison, Westlake High School Class of 2017 {Austin Senior Photographer}

Please meet Madison, a 2017 senior at Westlake High School.  I have photographed her twice before, so I was very excited about making her senior session everything she wanted it to be.  Madison wanted her senior photos to reflect who she is, and I think we were able to capture her vibe perfectly!  Madison is a member of the Westlake Hyline dance team and is just so lovely, inside and out.  I have so enjoyed working with her and her sweet family, and am going to miss them now that she's officially a senior.  

Madison's mom had the sweetest words for me after her ordering session, and I just have to share.  "Thank you, THANK YOU for such an amazing experience for Madison's Senior photos! And just when I thought I had seen ALL the best shots in your "sneak peeks", you proved me wrong! From innocent, to joyful, to carefree, to artsy ... And everywhere in between ... You captured Madison perfectly! And I added a few more photos to my "very top favorites" last night at our ordering session! Love you Heidi Knight Photography!" - Lori Olfers

Amanda, Westlake High School Class of 2017 {Austin Senior Photographer}

As soon as Amanda and her mom showed me her wardrobe and shoes, I knew this session was going to be epic.  I absolutely LOVE her style!  She really set the tone from the very beginning with her bubbly personality.  She is that girl everyone wants to know, and everyone loves... because she is every bit as sweet as her smile.  Amanda is a gem, and she and her mom are absolutely adorable together so I'm so glad we got a couple pictures of the two of them together.  All moms should have a photo with their little girl before she leaves home and ventures into the next phase.  

Macy, Brentwood Christian School Class of 2017 | {Austin Senior Photographer}

Please meet Macy, a 2017 senior at Brentwood Christian School.  Macy is a cross country runner, which is dear to my heart as a former cross country gal myself.  Macy's mom hooked us up with such a gorgeous location at Thurman's Mansion (the Salt Lick's property), and we finished up her portraits at the Kendra Scott headquarters.  It was a gorgeous Texas day and I loved working with Macy and her sweet family! 

"Paris is always a good idea." - Audrey Hepburn {A Breakfast at Tiffany's Inspired Photo Shoot}

Meet Paris, a 9th grader at LASA, the Liberal Arts and Science Academy in Austin (she's SMART, y'all).  Paris is a former St. Andrews student who proves that smart girls can also be beautiful and athletic.  She is a middle blocker for Austin Skyline Volleyball Club as well as playing outside hitter on the JV team for LBJ High School this Fall.  Paris has the glam features to pull off an Audrey Hepburn style, so we rocked some "Breakfast at Tiffany's" inspired shots... complete with her cell phone because what modern girl would be caught without her phone?  

Olivia, Westlake High School class of 2017 | {Austin's Senior Photographer, Heidi Knight}

Please meet Olivia, a Westlake High School 2017 senior.  Olivia is active in the National Charity League, as well as a program through her high school called Teen Teaching.  She loves photography and is looking forward to pursuing a career as an educator one day!  She has a dance background which showed in how naturally she was able to pose and how comfortable she seemed in front of the camera.  She was a natural model.  When I asked Olivia about her senior portrait experience, here is what she had to say.  

"I was afraid of not being comfortable or myself in front of the camera and that was not an issue at all. Heidi made me feel so comfortable to be myself and experiment with poses and just have fun while being photographed, which can be scary for some people.

I loved the way Heidi made me feel so welcomed and wanted. With treats and drinks for my enjoyment and a goody bag with the cutest little makeup items and t-shirt. I felt so so so wanted and welcomed and it was so fun getting my hair and makeup done on location so I didn't have to drive anywhere specific for my hair and makeup. Everything was amazing and it was hard to find just one favorite part of the session.

If you want the absolute best quality senior pictures taken then go to Heidi. It is so easy because she makes everything so calm and the day is so fun from the hair and makeup to the amazing locations and then to the actual shoot. I felt so comfortable and I've never worked with someone so kind and caring before. Heidi cares so much for all her clients and it is so evident. I would work for her a million times if I could because I had such a positive experience and it's something I will cherish forever. Senior pictures are meant to capture an amazing moment in someones life and they are something you keep forever to remember the memories of high school and I really truly believe that if you use Heidi Knight you will not regret it one bit."  - Olivia

Olivia, I had the most amazing time photographing you!  You were such a natural in front of the camera and posing was a breeze.  I loved your sweet spirit, your willingness to try anything we suggested, and your beautiful smile!  You are absolutely amazing, inside and out, and I wish you the very best senior year!  I can't wait to hear about which college you choose and where life takes you.  I know it will be somewhere amazing!  - Heidi



A fun summer photo session with Sidney, St. Andrews Class of 2020. {Austin's Premier Teen and Tween Portrait Photographer}

We met Sidney last year when she played on my daughter's Advanced Performance volleyball team.  She is a great outside hitter with a killer vertical and we loved watching her kill the ball.  But what really stands out to me about Sidney, is how very charming she is.  It's like you can see through her eyes right into her soul.  She is guileless.  So it was fun to juxtapose her sweetness with a vintage Indian Chief motorcycle.  I just love what she was able to do with those shots while still keeping every single one very classy and appropriate for her age (she's 14, y'all).  And of course, when I think of an all-American sweetheart and summertime, I think of snow cones and ice cream so we had to cool off at the Ice Box in Kyle.  We covered a lot of ground on this blistering July day, and had a ton of fun in the making of these images.
