Locations: Urban

Location, location, location

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. 

 

What goes into deciding on a location? 

First things first I think you should think about locations in two different categories. 
Urban or Nature. 
This will help you narrow down the options a bit. 
Not all locations fall into these two categories but I think it's a good starting point. 

Next I want you to think about what suites your family the best. For your whole life you've lived in Plano and never had photos taken downtown, that would be a great option to consider.
Or if your family enjoys bike rides through
Andy Brown East Park in Coppell that might be a good fit. 

Lastly, I want you to think about the space you want your photos to live. 
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 urban locations for your photo shoots already hanging up, then I'd also suggest sticking with an urban location. I can advise during our planning meeting.

This location fits this space very nicely. The colors are grey, white, and navy and not only do those colors pair nicely with an urban location but BONUS tip is that those colors are repeated in the family's clothing! (more about that later!) Location: Downtown Lewisville

Danielle Bridal

After a long day of work with a photo session at evening golden hour, I usually come home and crash but this time Danielle’s portraits were just too beautiful for me to give in to sleep. I stayed up WAY to late swooning over them, nothing 4 cups of coffee can’t fix the next day! From the moment I met Danielle (and Felix too!) they were the perfect couple that I dreamed about photographing! Isn’t Danielle’s sweet heart neckline amazing?! I also LOVE her hair and am so glad she had in down in her portraits.  In fact I loved her portraits so much that one is going on my new business cards and a huge canvas print for a new wedding venue open house.

MacElroy Spring Shoot

I have a spring shoot to share with you guys today and coral and blue, I love those colors! Reagan and Jackson are so cute and did such a great job considering we had our photo shoot at photographers geek term “golden” hour which also means toddler bedtime.  This time of year is hard scheduling shoots at dreamy light hours and around toddler sleeping time – but they did great! It probably helps that their mom is a Pediatric Sleep Expert – where was she 5 years ago when I needed help with my oldest???? I love these ones we took by the amphitheater.

Vitruvian Park is a really cool place to take photos.  I think I could have spent a good solid three hours going to the different spots that were really cool looking!
