This summer I had the opportunity to photograph ads for some of our local businesses. I love that our business community supports our High School. Many purchase ads in the Allen Football Program to not only advertise, but to support the Allen Eagles. And not only do they support financially, many request photoshoots with the Allen Eagles.
If you purchase the Allen Program at any of the football games, you will see all the fantastic images and ads from a variety of photographers and businesses. While taking these portraits I had the opportunity to meet some great kids. I love our high schoolers. That is why I chose senior portrait photography - these kids are so amazing and excited about their future. Chatting with the kids at the sessions and talking about recruitment and college plans was so fun. I was blessed to see a few of the Allen models at multiple shoots. After getting to know one of the cheerleaders, her mom asked me to take some cheerleading images for her. I LOVED doing this! First of all, Allen High School has beautiful colors and uniforms. I am from the MidWest, and while I loved being a Viking, unless you're Swedish or from Rockford, Illinois, you may not be familiar with Scandanavian blue. Here in Allen, we are so Americana, from red white and blue to being an Eagle, I love it! It makes for some amazing images!
Allen has suffered some criticism for the size of our high school and the cost of our stadium. But I know our Eagles and I know that Allen is the greatest community in Texas. Proud to be from Allen! #goeagles
