Breaking News… Texas Tradition Photography just released our Portraits in the Park Schedule | Now booking for Fall

What should I wear for my family portrait?

I get asked this question all the time! And it’s a GREAT question. And this is a great time to discuss this since family portrait season is HERE!  What am I saying? Family portrait season HAS ALREADY STARTED!!
A great family portrait begins with a great family portrait session.  And the way to achieve that, is to start planning RIGHT NOW! So, before you go any further, give us a call and get on our calendar for either our Portrait in the Park Event or our Home for the Holiday Event.  Details for both of these events are below

First, think about where you plan to hang your portrait. Will it be in your relaxed family or game room? Or will it be in a more formal room? That will help us set the style.  Going formal or casual in your dress, will depend on where the portraits will hang and what style you prefer.  After that, choose a color pallet that will go with, or compliment that room.

Now, let’s say you have no idea where your portraits will hang.  No problem!  Just choose colors that look good on your family and will stand the test of time.
To start, you might have a great dress or shirt that you LOVE and want to wear for the portrait. Great, let’s call this our inspiration piece.  An inspiration piece will give you a place to start.  Pull out a couple of colors from your inspiration piece and have everyone wear those colors.
Let’s say you LOVE blue. Everyone can wear jeans and a different shade of blue for their top.  Or have the grown ups wear similar dark blue tops and the kids wear different shades of blue.  Don’t be afraid of prints or to add a third color to your pallet.  Be creative and add a little bit of your personality to spice things up.

I hope this is some good information.  If you still need help, give me a call.  That’s what I’m here for.  You can also check out our website for some other examples.

Grab your family calendar and let’s get this party started!!

Thank you for reading, Lisa
Here it is… our 2020 Portraits in the Park Schedule.

For those of you new to our annual Portraits in the Park Event, here is a quick overview. October and November are usually beautiful months to schedule a family portrait for a couple of reasons. First, the weather is a little cooler and second the portraits will be ready just in time for holiday gift giving. Plus your new wall portrait can be hanging for all of your holiday gatherings. 

Why are we able to offer such a great session fee? Well, there are WAY more of YOU than there are of ME. So, I choose a park and schedule families one after the other on the same day and it works out for everyone. I’m able to get in a “groove” and not spend so much time driving from place to place. It’s a win/win. You get a better price and I get a better schedule.

If you have something different in mind, we still do regular portrait session during the holidays, just not on Portraits in the Park days.  I LOVE creative ideas, give me a call and we can chat about it.

What exactly is a Senior Model Street Team? Our street team is a select group of exceptional 2021 seniors who love to meet new people and be social. Our models love to be photographed and have great ideas that they bring to the team. Our street team keeps me up to date on what’s important to seniors. They are the face of my business.

This program is designed for 2021 high school seniors that want to be a part of the BEST senior experience in the North Dallas area.  Candidates do not have to look like a model or even want to be a model.  But you do have to have a great personality, be willing to try new things and brag about us every now and then.

How can Senior Portraits change your life?

Winter Senior Robly header

Seasons Greetings!

I know it sounds a little extreme, but really, think about it… How can Senior portraits change your life? Aren’t they “JUST PICTURES” ?

First, a portrait session can boost a person’s confidence. Most teenagers haven’t had a professional portrait session dedicated to only them…. ever!  So, once all the attention is on THEM, (the planning, the shooting, the viewing and choosing session) they realize that they look and feel amazing. Your senior might even get a little pep in their step. So, how do you think your senior will feel every time they walk into the room where their senior portrait is hanging? Yep, they will feel very special because their parents love them enough to hang a portrait of them (and only them) on the wall.  And it’s not just any portrait of them, it’s a REALLY good portrait. So why do they have a sparkle in their eye? Because every time they see their senior portraits, they will remember the awesome experience they had with you while taking them.

Second, Your entire senior portrait session experience will be amazing for both you and your senior. We will be with you through the entire process, so you can relax and enjoy every step. First, we will choose a date and location for your portrait session. Then we will send you our “what to bring” guide so you and your senior can choose outfits together. On your portrait session day, we will laugh, tell stories, talk about the past, present and future. If you sit back and listen, you will learn a lot about what your teen is thinking and planning. It’s a special time to focus on your senior and celebrate what he/she has done, and what he/she is planning to do in the future.

Let’s capture your senior’s personality and record this last stage of their life before they hit adulthood. We want them to realize their true beauty so that they are confident in themselves before they go off into adulthood. Imagine the impact a single beautiful image can do for your senior’s self image?

Why am I telling you this right now… in the middle of the holidays and exams?

I’m glad you asked! If your senior is a member of the band, choir, theater, drill team, cheerleading, or plays Football, soccer, softball, baseball, volleyball, tennis… basically, all seniors who have super tight schedules, we have two full weeks off before school starts back up and you resume your hectic schedule. I have set aside all afternoon today to answer your questions and schedule senior portrait sessions.

Parents, this is your opportunity to freeze time and celebrate with your senior. After this year, your senior will be moving into adulthood. This is it… Freeze it, enjoy it, cherish it.

(I’m already crying because my daughter will be a senior next year and I’m going to be on the other side of this conversation)

Call or email today so we can chat, I’ll be here all afternoon.

Thanks for reading, Lisa
