I was actually really excited that we chose a house in Irving/Las Colinas. When we picked our house, one of the great features was that we lived next to a park, in the Heritage District. I was thrilled that I got to have built in photography backdrops next to my house. There’s a decorative bridge, for cryin’ out loud! What child won’t look adorable on a decorative bridge?
When we really started driving around, I realized that there were as many parks in this town as most towns have bars. As we started to settle in, we did have to adapt to the operating hours of the restaurants (there was some whining involved, truth be told), but one of the first things we did was to go to the ground breaking ceremony around the convention center for the new music complex. Then I realized where this community was headed, in that it was going to try and attract professionals with families. It became even more important as we had our own child to throw in the mix.
It is my privilege to serve those families, to photograph the children that will grow up with my child. I love that Irving has an art district, with a museum that caters to children of all ages. We live next to a recreation center that I popped into to get some new recycling bags, and there was a teenager, hanging out and doing his homework. That is a positive community, that kids have places to be in, where they can focus on school and get some energy out at the same time. This city is really focused on families, and providing industry to employ those families. I think that as a child and pet photographer, that is a great place to be!
So, if you are ready to have a portrait session of your children in one of the beautiful parks around Irving, or even on that bridge, get in touch! Let’s take your dog out to the park! As always, no session fees, and you can take advantage of my lower product prices by calling to book an appointment by the end of October!
