Locations: Nature

Before I talk anything about location, I want to also stress that as much as you might worry about location and clothing, your photo session is about the time that you spent with your family and making memories. 

Did you miss my urban locations post? Check it out here! 

On my urban location post I talked about "What goes into choose the perfect location".  It might not be what you think, so I'd go and check that out.  

One of the first things that I'm going to discuss with you in our pre-session planning meeting is where you want your photos to live.  This is the biggest factor in deciding where your photo session should take place. 

If you want a gallery wall in your living room and the color scheme is brown and green then I'd suggest going for a nature location. You also need to look at the art that is already hanging in your space.  If you have mostly nature locations for your photo shoots already hanging up, then I'd also suggest sticking with an nature location. I can advise during our planning meeting.

 

This is a real example of a family of mine. They chose a nature location and I think it pairs really nicely with the decor going on around it!

A few nature locations in the DFW area

Don't get me wrong, I LOVE the most popular places to photograph in the DFW area.  I don't photograph at the typical locations because I think it's REALLY weird to be around a lot of other people who are taking photos. I think there are some better places around town that can get you the same effect. But if your heart is really set on a specific place that gets a lot of photography traffic, I'd suggest scheduling the session for the middle of the week in the morning. 

 

Rock Ledge Park in Grapevine (October)

Little Elm Beach (summer)

Your portrait session includes travel time anywhere in the Dallas area. If you’d like to go somewhere outside the city, I’m up for the adventure! Travel fees may apply for outside the area at .57/mile both ways.

I’d love to make your perfect location work! I’ve traveled to far away beaches, New Hampshire, and even Seattle. If you’d like me to meet you in a destination outside of Dallas for your portrait session where I don’t already have plans to visit, just let us know and I can get you a custom quote.
