Flower Mound Senior Pictures | DFW Senior Portraits

Congratulations to Jake for his upcoming graduation for class of 2020! He is a talented football player and looks forward to attending OU in the fall! It is a popular university for many North Texas high school graduates. This senior is special to me, because I remember when he walked the halls of the elementary school where I taught! While he was not in my class, I remember how helpful is mother was with PTA! I am so honored I had the opportunity to photograph him to celebrate his next chapter of education!

When is a good time to schedule senior photos?

Believe it or not I start booking Christmas photos as early as August! The schedule gets busier the closer it reaches November. Usually every weekend books first. From mid September to early November is a great time for senior photos. That means clients are competing with my Christmas business for photo times. During this time, there is still a lot of greenery, the grass is green, and plants look alive. Also, weather can vary greatly, but in general it is still comfortable weather for photos- not sweltering hot and not frigid cold. After November, I recommend waiting until late March to start outdoor senior photos again. By this time, spring is starting to push new growth and the outdoors looks pretty again, unlike the dead of winter. Early May is the very latest to have photos taken, as it is usually quite a rush to have images ready for announcements and parties. With all of this being said, please start contacting me to schedule portraits around July and August, as well as January and February. Booking ahead allows you to obtain your optimal date on the calendar. When scheduling ahead, we can always lock in the date and determine a location closer to the actual photo session date. There are so many wonderful locations in the DFW area.

Photos with Santa Plano TX| The Lumen Room Plano

Photos with Santa Plano Tx, The Lumen Room– Our tradition of photos with Santa finally arrived! We had a chance to visit Santa “Pappy” Claus. He is so wonderful and kind with the kids. He knows exactly what to say to them. He tells them to blow on his thumb to see if they are naughty or nice. His thumb glows red for good children. He whispers a prayer in their ear. He tells them to whisper in his ear. Also, he says “Close your eyes and make a wish,” while he hugs the child. Also he has children pinky promise to hear the secret to many presents…. to clean their room! A dirty room has no place for new toys! This Santa doesn’t make strange “ho ho ho” laughs or pat his belly. He is sincere and kind. He makes every visit memorable. Time with him is so special, my children remember him from the last year. It’s a tradition I really don’t want to end.

Santa Pappy Claus is so amazing with children, and he also works well with professional photographers. He knows how to pose and have natural interactions that create the most magical images!

After our time with Santa finished, we used other locations in the studio to take portraits. The tan couch, the green velvet chair, and the bed were great props. I managed to capture all of these images in just 30 minutes, which kept my kids’ attention.

The Plano Lumen Room is a clean crisp white with glossy floors. There are many pieces of furniture as well as mobile backdrops. The front entrance greets visitors with white washed brick walls. The character of the space is really wonderful and different from The Lumen Rooms in Dallas and Ft. Worth.

View The Lumen Room in Dallas is a great option for studio space as well. I have had the chance to use both rooms, the Red and the White. View sessions in the links below. Each location is unique and has something special to offer!

The Red Room has red brick walls and honey wood floors. This maternity couple chose the studio due to poor weather.

The White Room is wonderful with white wooden floors, white brick, and a wall of windows. This session featured beauty portraits to celebrate a 40th birthday!

View our sweet images from Santa last year!

DFW Fall Family Portraits

DFW Fall Family Portraits | Autumn 2019 Family Sessions

This fall I scheduled mini sessions on designated dates, and focused on providing full session options for clients who desired more time and more images. Throughout October and November, I photographed many families in a variety of locations. This blog highlights the places I most frequently use.

Stone Creek Park is located in the heart of Flower Mound. It is an extremely popular location among photographers. Its unique setting creates scenery that is rare in Texas! Because of the popularity, I hold sessions on weekdays and non-holidays. Otherwise, it is nearly impossible to have a stress free session.

Heritage Park is another favorite of mine. It has many trees and walking paths that offer a multitude of locations to use. It is beautiful through the seasons. The city has protected sections of the park for wildflower growth! Last summer, there were many beautiful black eyed Susans.

Highland Park offers a lush green setting with stone bridges and stairs. It feels as if one has traveled to a fairy tale land. This location is beautiful every time of the year!

Green Acres Farm Memorial Park was the most utilized location this year. I held mini sessions here. Many clients like this location because they like the white fence and the open land. View more of this location.

Grapevine Botanic Gardens are beautiful quaint gardens tucked away in the middle of Grapevine. The city recently remodeled the area, which has included many visual enhancements. The variety of plants throughout the seasons make this location ideal for many types of photography. There are several sections in the park, which allows us to create a variety of styles.

Grapevine Springs Park in Coppell is another wonderful location, because it is expansive! There are bridges, stone walls, walking paths, a large field, as well as the Senior Center which has manicured greenery. The sunset here is phenomenal, creating magical golden light!

Lastly, your home is a great place for photos! Some clients want their photos captured at home! This family was celebrating their first Christmas in their newly constructed house. It was a perfect reason for me to come to them for family photos.

Texas Ranch Bride

Texas Ranch Bride \ Bridal Portraits in Justin Texas. I had such fun photographing this Texas bride for a styled shoot at a ranch venue located in Justin, Texas. In all parts of Texas, ranches are pretty popular wedding venues and create a wonderful setting for events. The rustic cowboy, yet elegant Texas theme is a great way to celebrate a festive wedding! Usually, the barn is the main feature of the entire venue. It is where the ceremony or reception take place. The wooden beams create rich warm tones for portraiture.

During this bridal session, we explored the ranch grounds which expanded for many acres. At sunset we ventured from the main buildings to explore the hidden creek and green pastures. Golden light streamed through the creek bed creating magical golden tones. In addition, the ranch had many longhorn cattle and a couple of calves! They were quite frisky this evening and wanted lots of petting from us. One really liked licking the bride in particular!! That created some fun images. (The ranch owner was close by to assist with the cattle and maintain safety). He also drove use around in the golf cart to each location. The hospitality was wonderful.

Elegance can be portrayed in so many styles and locations. View a European inspired bridal portrait session at Mandalay Canals in Irving, Texas.
