Wonders of the Arboretum | Dallas/Ft. Worth Child and Family Photographer

We are down to the last days of Summer before school starts and amazingly we have another wave of "cooler" temps in the low 90°s!  Which is very rare for Texas in August, I'm sure we'll have a few more 100°+ days before Summer is officially over.  

One visit/activity on our list was to visit the Dallas Arboretum with my BFF and her brood.  I had only been there during their Spring Blooms.  This Summer they had a couple temporary displays including the Explorers and Allison Wonderland.

Going to the chapel | Flower Mound/Denton County Photographer

Last week I had the opportunity to photograph a small wedding at TWU's Little Chapel in the Woods in Denton, TX.  I was familiar with the area as I used to live outside of Denton and taught elementary school for the district.  It had been a while since I had been there so I took a quick trip with my girls the day before to take a look around.  I didn't take my camera with me so I snapped a few iPhone pics. of the area.  Other than the beautiful chapel there is a nice lily pond filled with turtles and minnows,  a green house, fountain, columns, and a lattice covered seating area.  Unfortunately I didn't get to use these areas as the wedding started late and we had very little time after the ceremony.  Stay tuned for wedding shares soon!

Planning your Family Session | Dallas/Ft. Worth, TX Family Photographer

Planning and preparing for your family portrait session can be a bit of a stress but also exciting!  It's so important to have updated family portraits at least every 2 years if not annually.  We never know when something might change and we want to cherish these memories before they are gone.

Here is a check list to help ease your stress.

1. Choose a photographer, whether it me or someone else.  When making this decision don't let price be the only deciding factor.  Take a look at the photographer's portfolio and decide if their style matches your own.  Do you want trendy, modern, classic, or vintage?  

2.  Decide on a date and location.  What season do you want Fall, Winter, Spring, or Summer?  Do you want a studio or outdoor look?  If deciding on an outdoor location ask yourself if you want urban, rural, or even your own backyard can make a great backdrop.  Textures and color make it fun too, such as brick, metal, and wood grain.

3. Carefully consider the time of day, outdoor portraits are best early morning and late afternoon/evening for the most pleasing light.  You don't want harsh light where the subjects are squinting and you can't see their eyes.  

5. If children are involved be sure they are well and rested.  A sick or tired child may not show their best expressions or smiles.

6. Plan "What to Wear", outfits don't need to all match but coordinate and not clash with each other.  Try to avoid too many bold patterns and logos, stick with simple so that the subject stands out and not the clothing.  You can also mix and match by bringing in one subjects clothing with some pattern and pulling out solids for other subjects.  Check out my Pinterest board for ideas.

7. Last of all have a great time!

Splashing Summer | Flower Mound, TX Child Photographer

Summer means water fun, staying up late, and sleeping in!  I limit sessions in the Summer due to my children being home.  Now that we are suffering 100° plus temps, cooling off in the water is even more important.

We met up with my best friend and her fabulous 4 last week at Roanoke's Cannon Parkway Park.

We tried out Colleyville's splash pad at Parr Park in June.
