MEET TRACY; PHOTOGRAPHY • SpryART and MOD MAVENS + CO

I’m Tracy and I’m the vision behind spryART photography, which specializes in weddings, families, and high school seniors. Since 2008, spryART has been synonymous with bold, bright colors, style, and lively, unique images. Nowadays I live and breathe light and color and can’t even drive around the neighborhood without envisioning a shot here and a shot there.

What else? Oh, my photography has been featured in the Wall Street Journal, I won first place in a nationwide Amazon.com photography contest, and I recently shot the cover of ReviewIt Magazine. I will also design some pretty amazing wall galleries for your home. I’m a wife and mom to five kiddos ranging in age from 5-16. I am an Aggie (Gig ‘Em!), a live music junkie, and a complete and utter book nerd. I dedicate my free time to humanitarian projects- I am on the Board of Directors for DirectHOPE, whose mission is to provide the homeless in Houston with a better life through assistance with food, transportation, and housing.

Together with another partner, Jennifer and I also co-own Mod Mavens + Co, a small business branding and communications studio.

This is more than a job. I’m on a mission to create ART and to add more color and style to your walls… and your life!

MEET JENNIFER; GRAPHIC DESIGNER • Jennifer West Pickard Graphic Design and The Silly Nilly Studio and MOD MAVENS + Co

I’m Jennifer and I am a Graphic Designer. I own Jennifer West Pickard Graphic Design where I work with businesses to build dynamic brands through print, web, and social media. I also own The Silly Nilly Studio, an invitation and party printables store on ETSY. I sometimes tease that I have a split personality; one being all business and the other as a party girl. Together with another partner, Tracy and I also co-own Mod Mavens + Co, a small business branding and communications studio.

Before moving to The Woodlands, I lived in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. I worked at Louisiana State University for 10 years…Geaux Tigers! While there I was a junior designer, a web designer, a senior designer and finally the art director. It was there that I had my first taste of teaching. I taught the Adobe Suite to adults with the Department of Continuing Education. This is where I learned that while the program of Adobe Photoshop is very powerful and intense if taught correctly, is an easy program to navigate...we have proof...kids as young as nine-years-old create projects like masters every summer ;)

When I’m not working all of my extra time is devoted to my kiddos. I've been a Brownie leader to 16 little girls, work with the yearbook committee at our elementary school, volunteer with the National Charity League Texas Laurel chapter with my daughter, and room mom for all of my children (I honestly don’t know how that happened!). If I am not behind my computer, you can find me at the baseball field, a dance competition, or watching the high school band perform.

I can’t wait to work with your little camper to see what they create! They have amazing creative brains and it brings me joy to see it come to life. See you this summer!
