Chris Overend,

Set Manager


Chris received her Bachelor of Science in Biology from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Upon graduation, she moved to Austin and began working in HR for the consulting corporation Accenture. After ten years with Accenture, she left the consulting workforce to raise her two daughters. It was at this time that she fell in love with photography, creating photo albums for her girls and later coordinating the creation of the Eanes Elementary yearbook where her daughters attended school.  In 2015, she won an Eanespiration Award for her dedication and hard work on essentially re-inventing the Eanes Elementary yearbook process over the course of 7 years and creating their 5th Grade Yearbook Club.


Joining Photographers of Westlake in 2014, Chris attended sessions on the latest photo equipment and editing techniques in addition to studying the more traditional arts of lighting and framing subjects. Chris' two daughters are now finishing up high school at Westlake and heading off to college and as they have grown, so has her love of photography. She loves working with kids of all ages from toddlers through teenagers and bringing their natural beauty to light in front of the camera.
