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.

Modern Home in Kessler Woods {Dallas Architecture}

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.

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.

Stefan {Dallas Senior Portraits}

This year I had the pleasure of photographing several seniors that I have known for several years... Back from my time I was a school librarian with DISD.  I loved that career and even held onto it as I transitioned and built my business that I started in 2005 as a photographer.

Stefan is one of those guys that I remember as quiet, respectful kid who always had a sparkle in his eye that let you know he was going to grow up to be a friendly young man.  And he did grow up just like I imagined.  His session started in Deep Ellum as we sought out colorful spots (and I narrowly escaped getting run over in one shot) and finished up at the Dreyfus Club at White Rock Lake, where his family are members. This made for a great variety of shots.  Here are just a few of their faves! Congratulations to this handsome guy as he moves onto the next phase in his life off at college.
