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.  

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


Head Shots | {Austin Senior Photographer}

We are a senior photography studio in the Austin, TX area... but today we took some corporate head shots for the #SharetheLove campaign winner, Michelle Poremski.  During the summer Heidi Knight Photography and Shawn Brooks Beauty donated a mini session, complete with full hair & makeup, to the Share the Love campaign hosted by local realtor, Jayna Love Homes.  We had so much fun with this mini session! #DontSettleForBasic #RealSkin #HeadShotsGetGlam #HKPseniors #HeidiKnightPhotography

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.

Lake Travis High School 2017 seniors, Bradli & Davis Hills | {Austin Senior Portraits}

We kicked off our 2017 senior photo season with gorgeous Lake Travis High School twins Bradli & Davis.  These girls were amazing and this lakefront estate certainly provided the perfect backdrop for their images.  Twins = double the beauty.  I absolutely adore these girls and wish them a fabulous senior year!  


2017 seniors, we have a few dates remaining for Fall, and are booking Spring of next year!  Contact us to book your senior session now!

Sydney & Skylar {Dripping Springs High School Senior Portrait Photography}

I had the most amazing time in Dripping Springs photographing Sydney and Skylar!  As soon as I saw a photo of Sydney's prom dress, I knew we had to do a photoshoot and what better than to involve both girls horses into the session?  And what better way to welcome summer than at the pool?  I loved working with these girls!  It was such a fun day!

40 (for one more day)

Today I am 40 (tomorrow I'm not).  I have to thank my friend, Nicky, for reminding me that my days of being 40 were running low last month.  Especially since I've promised her a photoshoot for the past 10 years and I finally consented that 40 would be the year.  Ladies, are you putting off photos of yourself (or of your family) until next year, until you lose weight, until...?  I highly recommend that you stop looking for reasons not to take a picture, and JUST GO FOR IT!  You'll never be as young as you are today, and being thinner is totally overrated.  Just find a photographer who knows about posing and light, hire a phenomenal hair & makeup artist (I use Shawn Brooks Beauty), and get in front of the camera!  It's worth it, I promise! I know for a fact that you will be surprised by how amazing you really are, and wonder why on earth you didn't take a photo of just you years ago?  So drop all of your excuses and your self doubt and take a picture!  Because YOU ARE WORTH IT! 

xoxo Heidi
