Richardson Senior Portrait Location - "Doesn't Look Like Dallas" Park

Senior portrait locations are a fun part of the senior portrait experience.  Like clothing, they can add a lot of character to your portraits.  (Sign up to our enewsletter list below to get your Free Style Guide foryour senior portrait session.) This is the third in a series talking about senior portrait locations in and around Dallas, TX.

The first location I want to feature is best in the spring and fall because it is outdoors.  You've seen it on my website and blog if you've looked at all.  It is a perfect outdoor location because:

  • We can photograph at a bridge, a rocky area, and a grassy area all in a one-hour session.
  • It is not far off Hwy. 75, which runs through the center of the Dallas area, so it is convenient for most people.
  • This location allows for a lot of variation in posing; there are places to stand, sit, or lie down (on a blanket).
  • There are beautiful wildflowers in the spring and beautiful leaves in the fall season.
  • Most seniors really enjoy being outside for their sessions.

I really enjoy the variety of this location.  However, there is a downside:  I cannot reserve it ahead of time and it is a very popular spot.  The good news is that I am always able to work my way in there to get the shots I want, so no worries there. I call this the "Doesn't Look Like Dallas" Park.  It is in Richardson, but that's not what I mean by "doesn't look like Dallas". OK, don't be offended by this.  I've lived in this area for a very long time and love it here, but, let's face it, it's refreshing when you come upon a place that looks different from all the others around. This location is perfect for a senior who :

  • Wants different settings all in one location.
  • Doesn't mind lots of other people around for the session (not in your shots, of course!).
  • Feels comfortable and relaxed outdoors.
  • Doesn't mind sweating a little or having her hair blow a bit.

Here is a shot taken on the bridge:
