Southlake Fall Photographer – We had a wonderful evening at a park near Lake Grapevine. The sun glowed golden hues creating a magical setting. The family wore the perfect color tones that complimented the evening light. We had such a fun time braving the tall grass and grasshoppers popping out to surprise us! It kept the girls alert and on their toes!
I loved that the mother planned a fun outfit for her sporty basketball player! She is a tough opponent on the court! Don’t mess with her! You can see it in her fierce expression!
Wondering how the family managed so many outfits? They booked a full session. This allows for wardrobe changes and we were able to utilize several areas at the location. It created a large variety of images, from clean and crisp to capturing sun flares as the sun began to set. It is a priority for me to photograph the family in their true element and feature genuine emotions and interactions. Allowing enough time to do this is key to acquiring those images.
Planning a photo session? Need wardrobe ideas? Read the wardrobe guide! It meets the needs of many styles and preferences. Attention and detail to what the family wears is essential for cohesive portraits. I am always happy to provide wardrobe recommendations.
Grapevine Colleyville Fall Family Photographer – Fall has been so vibrant and beautiful this year! The colors keep amazing me! Foliage was so beautiful at this park in the Grapevine Colleyville area! Not to mention my clients hit it out of the ballpark with wardrobe and color selections! My recent blog post may have helped guide their clothing choices! They all really did such a wonderful job!
The abundance of colorful oranges, reds, and browns is a rare and short lived treat in Dallas fall weather usually! A weather article explains that all the rain in September and October helped create these beautiful colors! “Dallas-Fort Worth has recorded its wettest September and October, with more than 27.21 inches combined.” While the rain was a struggle in October, I am so very thankful for the wonderful colors and fairly mild temperatures that have occurred in November!
How do sessions look for future months? I will still book full sessions throughout the year. During colder months with less foliage, I gravitate toward modern city settings as well as indoor natural light studios!
Bluebonnets are the next popular photo season in spring. Please be on the watch for posts or emails in March about bluebonnets! It is a very short window of time to capture beautiful images with our state flower.
Grapevine Family Photographer Fall Portraits This family and I had a wonderful time photographing their fall portraits! The Grapevine Botanic Gardens were the perfect size for this family with small children. We were able to walk through the paths to several locations to achieve a versatile look in the images. The rich greenery and sun setting, provided a lush setting for vibrant colors.
Achieving the Classic Look
During a family session, I always capture the family posed. Those are the photos we all want framed and given as gifts to family. I also spend time capture the family in their natural interactions. With gentle prompting, the family interacts with one another. In these moments I capture authentic moments with genuine emotions. Also, it encourages movement, which adds depth to images. With the combination of guided posed images and candid moments, I achieve a classic family portrait gallery. I strive to give clients direction, including what to do and how to dress so I can create a timeless collection that they will love for years!
