Melissa & Spencer {Dallas Family and Tween Photographer}

The bond between mother and son is something I hold dear to my heart.  Melissa and Spencer celebrated their family with a session that was filled with love and joy and made me smile the entire time.  And this tween boy blew me away with his style and easy going personality, too!  I couldn't believe he picked his outfit head to toe! I absolutely adored photographing the two of them.  This is such an important age to capture of our kids!


We are so fortunate to have White Rock Lake in Dallas and it is one of my favorite places to photograph... Year round!  No matter the season, it is a beautiful backdrop for your portraits.  Consider the lake and surrounding fields and schedule your session for this spring or summer.  Sessions are booking now!  Call the studio or contact Tracy Allyn Photography through the contact page on the blog or website for yours.  For portfolio & information, visit

Kaylee {Texas Senior Photographer}

I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving with your families. Ours in Texas was fun as usual. This year we had a larger than normal gathering and we were all excited that my stepsister's family was able to make it in!  So while they were in town we scheduled my niece, Kaylee's senior portraits.  She is a Class of 2015 senior in Amarillo and wanted some good ol' Texas trees included.  And the trees over the road leading to Grandmother's house were gorgeous!  What do you think?  I think we nailed it on this first peek!  In fact, it may be one of my all time favorites!!!  I can't wait to get to work on the rest of her gallery!  Isn't she stunning? 

Leave Kaylee some love in the comments section below the image!


Susan {Dallas Portrait Photographer}

On this first day of cold weather in Dallas I found myself looking back at one of my favorite portrait sessions from warmer times.  This summer I was truly honored when Susan celebrated herself and her upcoming birthday with a portrait session by Tracy Allyn Photography.  From the moment I met her I was blown away not only by her beauty but also her sense of humor.  We laughed and talked the whole time!  What an incredible experience it was to get to know her.  These images were some favorites from our time out at White Rock Lake. 


A Big Crew {Dallas Family Photographer}

Let's see if I can name them all... Shannon & John with their kids, Luke (8), Jace (5), twins Carpenter & have (10 months);  David & Kelly with their kids, Brayden (4) and Bradleigh (2), and Shannon & David's super sweet parents, Jack & Peggy.  Whew!  What a crew!  This big family went with me one morning to Arbor Hills Nature Preserve.  I always love the location and this time I thoroughly enjoyed wading in the creek there where we got some great shots.  The boys even made a faux campfire!  Such fun!  So glad this crew was able to get together for a session while Shannon & John's family was visiting from overseas!


Ryan & Karin {Dallas Couples Photographer}

Just a quick glimpse of a recent session at a new location for me.  I loved photographing Karin and Ryan.  Beautiful clients that are super sweet and funny make my job easy. So many more to come at a later date on the blog.  But for now...
