End with Sprinkles | Dallas Family lifestyle photographer

Photographing this family is always a ton of fun. I adore the kiddos and the parents are pretty fantastic too. I am lucky enough that I generally get to see them a couple times a year.

We had put this session on the calendar a couple months ahead of time before deciding on a location. As the session date approached, mom sends me a text with a picture of this wall and says, “Think we can use this for our session?” I may or may not have squealed out loud. SO much color. SO unique. SO fun. YES, of course we can use it for your session!

The day of the session arrives and I meet them in the parking lot and I see “the wall”. And it is tiny. And so is the parking lot. And the parking lot is actually really busy because it is for a coffee shop. So far, this is not exactly going as I had envisioned in my mind. I wasn’t concerned because I knew we were only planning on spending a few minutes there before heading over to another location for the second half of the session.

Thank goodness mom thought to bring the nanny along. She literally acted as the traffic guard for us. Ha! For real. I would get everyone lined up and start shooting and she would yell, “car”. And we everyone run to move out of the way and let the car pass and then we would do it all over again. It wasn’t exactly calm. But, let me say this, it went pretty perfectly.

I mean, look at these images. The running back and forth provided movement and an action for the kiddos. I am certain, had this wall been located in a big empty parking lot as I had hoped for, the images would not have turned out as well. There would not have been any life in them.

After the cool wall, we headed to another super fun Dallas location to let the kids play and have donuts. This spot was the polar opposite of the last one… No one was around and the kids had tons of space to run. We spent the last 10 minutes (okay, maybe more like 2 minutes) sitting down to eat donuts. I thought that was a pretty rockstar thing for mom to do. Even though they had been asking for donuts the entire time, the kids were only interested in actually eating the sprinkles off and then hoping up to play again:) Typical.

If you are interested in a lifestyle family session with me in the DFW metroplex or beyond, shoot me an email. I would love to hear from you.
