Senior SEssion in Adriatica in McKinney

Last Saturday in McKinney, which is close to Dallas, there were a few clouds to filter the light and there was a soft breeze blowing. Fall is here and I couldn't be happier! This McKinney senior pictures session was done at Adriatica.

Abby, a senior model with Studio You Portraits, arrived with her hair and makeup professionally done. She started in this cute outfit. Shorts and boots are the thing around here and she looked fabulous!

Sometimes, the light on the building behind her is very bright, but this particular day, there were a few clouds to make the light more diffused. Yay, clouds!

After the shorts outfit, we went to her car and she showed me what she brought.. We decided on a favorite dress of hers, which had a pattern.  Normally, I don't recommend patterns, but we talked about the fact that the facade was one tone without much going on, so the pattern would be fine. I really want the seniors to wear clothing they love and feel good in. :

We worked in tunnel for a little while. Can you tell I love working around that tunnel?

Toward the end of the session, the sun was setting and the light was breathtaking. I giggle a little during sunset photo sessions when the light is especially beautiful. Ask my husband. It's true. I didn't want cars in the background, so I had to time this one just right, while keeping an eye on the traffic in the street behind her.

It's a challenge sometimes to work when there are other photographers around, but we all managed. I love this one. Backlight is the best!

Abby's mom thought the green shutters were cute, so I composed some shots incorporating them. I agree and like this one so much!

I can shoot just about anywhere but I have some good ideas about locations if you want them.

I have a couple of Fridays left this year and one Saturday, before it gets too cold. Interested? Call/text 214.783.9691 or email me at Dawn@StudioYouPortraits.com today!
