Fall Family Photos at Klyde Warren Park {Dallas Portraits}

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!


Dream Backyard Session {Dallas Family Photographer}

Sometimes I'm looking back at images for something and I see a session and think, "holy cow wow... Did I never blog that?" This was one of those mornings. And how could I deprive anyone of seeing this beautiful extended family? I mean, I've photographed them a few times now, always in Grandma and Papa'sgorgeous (seriously stunning!) and huge park like backyard in North Dallas. The girls, cousins, love swinging on the super tall tree swing and this time, their dresses made them so happy and they loved hamming it up for the camera. Thank you, Jan and CB, for inviting me into your home to photograph your handsome sons, Ben and Ceb, and their gorgeous girls... Both wives and daughters!


Kreg, Tracy, Mallory, & Emerson {Dallas Child Family Photographer}

Mallory & Emerson, are sweet, beautiful, fun... And so photogenic.  I loved photographing them with their mommy and daddy, Tracy and Kreg, previously at Arbor Hills Nature Preserve.  This time we met at a local park on a gorgeous, sunlit morning.  Tracy styled them in such colorful dresses that really fit the location of this awesome park with cute bridges and interesting trees.  I loved watching these fearless girls climb!  They are just the way little girls should be... Full of smiles, personality, and zest! 


Jeremy, Lindsay, & Crew {Dallas Family Photography}

A few days ago I shared a sweet and playful series of Jeremy & Lindsay kissing with their kiddos, Jack, Hazel, and Collin, in the foreground.  Ahem... You may have caught onto this already from my website portfolio and blog, but I am a huge sucker for kissing photos!  So it won't be a surprise if you see a few more in the other images from their session. 

When Lindsay contacted me she said she wanted something playful in a modern setting.  Perfect!  In fact, right up my alley!  We planned for an outing in the Dallas Arts District and finished up with the playground at Klyde Warren Park.  The park can get quite crowded but luckily, with the warm weather and early sunrise lately, we started early and beat the crowds... Unless you count the boot camp that was going on on the park lawn!  The kids really enjoyed themselves at both locations and the shoot was a ton of fun for me, too!  I love this crew!  Between the smiles, giggles, snuggles, and gazes we had some really funny expressions.  I love the crazy look Jack is giving the family in one shot!  And what kids don't love to finish a shoot running through water?  I was tempted to myself!

Thank you so much for a fun-filled morning, Lindsay & Jeremy! 


Tracy Allyn Photography is currently booking summer & fall sessions! 

Emerson {Dallas Child Photographer}

This little one is 2 1/2 and so stinking cute!  Her Mom & Dad have a picture very similar to this one of her older sister when she was this age... So they asked me to create one of Emerson so they could display them side-by-side.  I just love her little over-the-shoulder smile!  And it turned out absolutely beautiful as a black & white on linen wall portrait!

More to come of the whole family soon!
