I can never get enough of the evening sun when the leaves are changing! This late fall session with my two favorite redheads, Lauren and Lindsey, at White Rock Lake was everything I wanted it to be for the best season of the year. Shooting with my all-time favorite 85mm lens (if you don't have one, get one!) added to the softness of the background oranges, yellows, and greens. Seriously, I wish I could freeze this scene in time as our fall color is always so fleeting. Our beloved White Rock Lake offers so many things to our community, awesome photography locations just being one. Thank you, Mother Nature!
I love it when sessions just make me smile. This is one of those sessions. Chris and Tesha are so in love and they just simply adore each other and celebrate with portraits. I've photographed them a few times now and each time I am in awe of the way he looks at her. Here are a few from a recent shoot with them.
This gorgeous modern home at 2203 Kessler Woods Ct. in the Oak Cliff section of Dallas, Texas is truly a stunner. I was thrilled when the homeowners contacted me to photograph it after they completed some renovations and upkeep to the kitchen and other interior and exterior spaces. They have such great style and their beautiful B&B Italia furniture and extensive modern art collection are featured superbly throughout the home. The use of Prodema wood panels has such warmth and plays well with the glass and brick facades. One of my favorite viewpoints is the way the kitchen and living area open to the pool on one end and give you a feeling of being in a tree house at the dining room. Everywhere you walk inside seems like you can see a connection to the other spaces giving a sense of wholeness floating throughout the three floors. The third floor deck has a beautiful view of the Dallas skyline. The house was designed by Hammers + Partners: Architecture, Inc and is part of the Kessler Woods community of modern homes.

Sometimes I look back and wonder how I never got around to blogging certain sessions. This one of Audra, Madeline, and Tyler goes a bit back. I have photographed them several times now and I love seeing them each time. So without further ado, I'll leave you with some faves from the shoot we did around the White Rock Lake / Lake Highlands area.
Chris, Christine, and Kai met me last fall for a family portrait session on a weekday morning at Klyde Warren Park. I absolutely love this family and am enjoying seeing Kai grow up... This was my third time photographing them and I can't wait to see them again in just a few weeks!
Klyde Warren is such a blast to visit, with great green space, a treehouse, splash features, ping pong, books and games, putting green, corn hole, and even a small dog park. If you've never been, you must! But the park is not always the best for portraits if you are shooting on a weekend. You see, everyone else in Dallas loves it, too! So weekday mornings are the perfect opportunity for such a fun shoot. Thinking this might be the location for you? Contact me to book your shoot! And with just a few open spots left for fall, hurry!
