The Clark Family {Dallas Portraits in Architecture}

Our Dallas skyline is absolutely incredible! Several years ago the Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge, designed by Santiago Calatrava, made it even more so. I love driving over the bridge in either direction over the Trinity River, especially at night with the top down on my car! The pedestrian Continental Avenue Bridge provides a fantastic view of this skyline architecture and also happens to be a fun spot for portraits. Definitely, a great location that you can even finish up at Trinity Groves for dinner or drinks after the shoot to make an evening of it!

A little while back, The Clarks and I took advantage of a beautiful, warm evening for their family portraits and the boys even enjoyed some climbing on the bridge's park structures. I love the warm light of the setting sun on their faces!  And if you are looking for ways to style your outfits, their oranges and blues with mixed solids and patterns were fantastic!

Tracy Allyn Photography is now booking sessions for spring. Contact the studio to talk about your session, whether it be an urban location like the Clarks chose or in nature. Email photos@tracyallyn.com, call 214.682.3965 or use the contact page.  Weekday and weekend sessions are available.

Audra, Madeline, and Tyler

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.

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!

Fall is Coming {Dallas Family Photographer}

Fall is almost here! It is my favorite season... EVER! I love everything about it. The crisp air, the colors of the leaves, the sweaters. And I also love seeing some of my favorite families for their annual photos. One of those is this adorable trio. I can't believe I never blogged Chris, Christine, and Kai's session from last year. So they will be up next! Until then... Enjoy this cute shot of them walking hand in hand at Klyde Warren Park.

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!
