Jack {Dallas Senior Portraits}

Yet another incredible senior that I have know for quite some time. Jack just graduated from the Science and Engineering Magnet School of Dallas ISD at Townview Magnet. I always remember him as a 1st - 5th grader being so polite, friendly, and super intelligent.  It is great to see he grew up just the same!  But it definitely shocked me when I saw him with beard and all grown up...So handsome!

He suggested the location, one of his faves over near his high school by the Trinity River and a spot he often explores with friends.  It was fun checking out this new for me spot.  Loved the mix of old and new... And yes, we had to wait and time that DART train passing by.  It seemed like it took forever just as a storm was ready to roll in.  Glad we caught him on a non-windy moment!

Congratulations and best of luck in college, Jack!


John, Tracy, & Ryder {Dallas Family Photographer}

This little guy has been so fun to see grow over the years.  I first photographed Ryder with his parents, John and Tracy, when Ryder was just a little baby!  I'm talking like at 3 months old.  This is our fourth session together.  His expressions crack me up and we all had a blast with the Arts District as our playground.  I know Ryder was thrilled to splash at the Winspear Opera House... Can you believe this was in January?  Only in Texas!

Grace - Class of 2015 {Dallas Senior Photographer}

Can you guess where this beautifully cool Dallas senior is going to college after she graduates from Hockaday next month?  She is heading across the pond to her favorite city of London! 

Congratulations Grace!  I'm honored to have taken your senior pictures and can't wait to photograph your graduation.  Will share more from both shoots after the ceremony!


Class of 2016 seniors, book your session with Tracy Allyn Photography!

Chris, Julie, & Gavin {Dallas Child & Family Photographer}

Every time I look at the pictures from this fun, urban session in Deep Ellum I am completely taken back to when my own son couldn't leave home without Thomas or Percy.  Those iconic trains rank almost (okay, not quite) as high as Legos when it comes to awesome toys for boys!  Gavin is such a cute little guy with a giant grin that I adore.  Thanks so much for spending a morning in the heat of the summer with me, Julie & Chris.  I had a blast meeting the three of you!


Dave, Christie, Andrew, & Anna {Dallas Family Photographer}

A fun family, a windy afternoon, dried field and winter-like trees, and a little parkour.  This is the second time I have photographed Dave, Christie, Andrew, and Anna.  The last time was quite awhile ago in the extreme summer heat and we decided to shoot in the studio.  This time, we couldn't have been more into nature.  I loved seeing them again... Even if my heart did almost stop when Andrew was jumping over bridges.
