Hope | Great Hearts Monte Vista North

    Hope is part of the inaugural graduating class of Great Hearts Monte Vista North, and I bet they are very glad to have her as part of that class: she’s incredibly smart and has such a sweet, quiet spirit. Academics have been a huge focus in her life, and have earned her an impressive 4.0 G.P.A. She was raised in Beijing, and moved to San Antonio in the 7th grade. Because of her background, she is fluent in Mandarin, and volunteers her time to translate documents for families adopting kids from China (such a unique need!). She hopes to use her native language in her career someday, wherever that may lead.

    Hope is the daughter of some of our best friends, so I have certainly been honored to get to know her. She loves cats, and is a very talented pianist, and her mom added that she is glad she chose a piano skirt instead of a cat skirt 🙂 A budding photographer herself, Hope is comfortable behind the camera as well as in front of it. Her family is deeply important to her, and she loves her brother and sister very much. Although she is primarily soft-spoken, she has a fiery side that provides her with drive and passion, and I bet that combination will give her a very bright future.

    Thanks Hope, for allowing me to be your senior photographer! I can’t wait to see what your next steps are!



    Custom Designer Graduation Announcements

    I can hardly believe the school year is nearing it’s end! These last few months go so quickly, especially when you’re the parent or guardian of a graduating senior. I wanted to remind my audience (including parents of upcoming juniors), that I offer custom graduation announcements. If you don’t want to settle for the basic, generic, and overused invitations and announcements that schools and traditional photographers provide, I can help! It’s super easy. The process starts with you viewing our grad catalog, where you can choose a design. Then, we can customize it however you choose.

    Some seniors choose to coordinate it with their senior photos and wardrobe, or the college they will soon call their home. I can coordinate colors and designs to go with what you choose…the sky is truly the limit! As you can see below, we have styles that are classic, modern, and elegant, and you and your graduate are sure to find a design that you both love. If you haven’t had your senior photos taken yet, don’t worry, there is still some time. SOME time, not a lot of time. 😉  And we can get your announcements designed too! Your graduation announcements should reflect personality and style, and not be just a cookie-cutter printout. A customized design will be the envy of your friends and family, and will become a memory to treasure for years to come.
