Event Phothographer | Shelley Edwards Photography

So last weekend I attended Newman Smith High School, Class of 1985’s reunion – I was there as their event photographer. I’m actually an alumni of Newman Smith (Go Trojans) – so it was really fun seeing some of the peeps. Then again, when I was a senior, they were freshman, so I probably didn’t notice them much.  It didn’t really feel right selling CDs to my friends from the event, so I decided that it’s time to pay things forward.  Life has been really good to me lately, so all profits from the sale of the event CDs will be donated to Operation Smile (www.operationsmile.org).  It’s a great organization that helps children who have facial deformities.  So NSHS friends – please contact me if you want to help us create a smile!

Let’s see – in 1985 – what was going on?

Flower Mound Senior Portraits | Shelley Edwards Photography

Here are a few shots of the portrait I took of this beauty. She reminds me of a very young Winona Rider. She had a great spunky personality, and her dad is a very old & dear friend.   It was wonderful reconnecting with her father, and was totally honored they chose Shelley Edwards Photography for Riley’s senior portraits.

Congrats to Riley – I just know you’ll do very well – GO OUT AND SMASH IT!!!

Horn High School | Mesquite Senior Portraits

This little gal has been in my life since she was a baby!  I just can’t believe how TALL and beautiful she is.   My son, and her brothers, were friends from way back when – you know – the PeeWee football days.  Bryanna would always want to sit with me and root the team on.  She really did turn out to be a lovely young lady – I’m not surprised at all.  She comes from good people.  I’ve maintained a friendship with her mother all of these years – she’s a great gal and I know she’s very proud.

Bryanna was one of my 2010 Senior models – and she did a great job on referrals!  We did her “real” senior session last weekend.  Why is it that the wind must ALWAYS be present during my shoots?  Well, what does one do?  We roll with it baby.  I think we got some really good stuff!

Mesquite High School | Shelley Edwards Photography

Every once and a while, you come across a client or a model that just “gets” the direction.  They understand and “morph” into position and just “be” what you envision.   Meet Clark.  He gets it.  His parents get it.  His sisters most DEFINITELY GOT IT.

I say “kinda lean against that wall and smile” and he does – WOW OH WOW – he gets it.  Take a look at these shots – he does, doesnt he?  I’ve been the Gaddis’ photographer for a few years now, and like I said, WOW oh WOW – they get it.

Mesquite High School – I bet you’ll miss this punter.  What?  Yep – he’s an all star.

Now, please respond, what do you think?
