Dallas Blogger Nicole Newton // Session 2

Can you believe it’s already the second week of April? I for one am thankful the direct sunlight is back and that I have the ability to walk outside without constantly being bundled in my yellow pea coat and scarf.

I can’t say the same about last month’s weather. The day I shot with Nicole, the weather decided to be very temperamental and forced us to get creative. Nicole had been wanting to shoot in a parking garage so this was the perfect time to try out a new location.

Who knew a few stories underground could be so beautiful? I loved shooting down there (avoiding the wind and rain is always a plus). This outfit was perfect for shooting directly under the skylight, which gave us much more natural light. Fortunately the skylight was conveniently near the beautiful elevator doors.

If you ever find yourself resorting to shooting in a parking garage, here are a few tips I gathered:

  • If there is a skylight, use it! It makes for gorgeous diffused light so nothing is too harsh on your face or clothes. Shooting in the middle of the day is no longer a problem.
  • Try to find a level that is less crowded with cars and people, that way you can shoot in the middle of the road if needed. This also looks amazing because it’s symmetrical (I’ll have to share an example of that with a later outfit)
  • Perk – if you choose a level that’s less crowded, changing in your car is much easier ;)
  • Look for varying textures and walls to create different backgrounds.  You don’t have to show the entire garage, so you can be selective and make it look much more interesting than just a garage.
  • Don’t be afraid or shy to shoot when people are around, they’ll leave eventually and you’ll (probably) never see them again so go for it!
Without further ado, here is the beautiful – and can I say adventurous – Nicole.


“I’m not going to lie y’all, I was extremely nervous to put myself in front of the camera because I’ve always thought ‘I don’t take good pictures.’ Needless to say, I went through with the shoot and with Megan’s help and encouraging personality I was able to pull through and thoroughly enjoy myself.”- Nicole Newton


Have you ever shot in a garage or unusual location? I’d love hear about it in the comments below!

Dallas Blogger Brooke Reagan // Session 1

This is the lovely Brooke Reagan. We met to shoot in downtown Dallas at Main Street Garden Park and found some incredible spots!

Brooke is based in Dallas and blogs at, a gorgeous fashion and lifestyle blog. I loved how she mixed different shades of pink and wanted to go out and buy a pleated skirt afterwards ;)

“I felt totally comfortable during the shoot and the pictures are absolutely fabulous! They look so professional and magazine-worthy. Thank you for your hard work, Megan!” – Brooke

Dallas Blogger Lauren Murphy // Session 3

A few weekends ago, I had the opportunity to shoot with Lauren, her BFF (who was our extraordinary hair & makeup artist for the day) and my talented husband – so we could try out a few new things we’d been thinking about.

We met at Highland Park Village and it seemed like everywhere we went offered a new and different feel. I love when bloggers suggest locations we haven’t shot in before as it allows me to capture them in new environments which help to differentiate their blog & images even more.

I’m always amazed by Lauren’s outfits and her ability to create something new and different each time we shoot. (and I’m so glad she let us try something new!)

Towards the end of the shoot, my talented husband took over and was able to create this incredible image. (It still amazes me how he did this?!)


Have a wonderful Monday!


P.S. What is your problem? Is there something you’re struggling with in your blog or photography? I still have 30-minute Skype sessions (currently FREE) available if you’re wanting to get face to face and ask me anything, I’d love to help however I can.

Dallas Blogger Lauren Murphy // Session 2

This weekend was incredible – I was able to shoot with three lovely bloggers and it was great seeing how each of their styles differed and fit them perfectly. I hope you had a great weekend as well!

Growing up, I loved redecorating my room –  the main color was lavender one year and jalapeño green the next, but each time I always loved accenting it with lots of black & white. I’ve always thought black and white was incredibly classy and chic, so of course I loved this outfit Lauren styled.

As if this outfit wasn’t classy enough, Lauren added a stunning black & white striped jacket. Enjoy!

2014 Neiman Marcus Trend Event

This past week was incredible – I was able to see my bestie (since the 2nd grade) who came all the way from Oklahoma to visit. Let’s just say four hours in a coffee shop wasn’t nearly enough time to talk through our dreams and goals for the next few years.

On Wednesday I made my way to the Neiman Marcus Trend Event and brought my beloved camera because I typically don’t know anyone and it’s a great conversation starter ;)

I wouldn’t necessary consider myself someone who knows a lot about fashion or mixing pieces of clothing (this typically intimidates me for some reason).  I’ll blame it on my Type-A personality and the fear of someone thinking I’ve put on the wrong thing.

I do, however, love seeing how others mix pieces together – especially when they’re high quality and colorful.

A few of my favorite trends on the runway were Denim on Denim and White with Black.

At the end of the show I was able to meet the hosts – who also happened to be some of my favorite Dallas bloggers!

Amy Havins of Dallas Wardrobe, Allison Edwards of Where Wear in the City (who I got to shoot with a few weeks ago!) and Lauren Scruggs of Lolo Magazine (who I’ll be shooting with shortly, I can’t wait!). It was fun to see the difference in their styles and preferences and confirmed that it was ok that I wanted to wear flats and sea foam pants ;)

Here are a few of my favorite looks from the Trend Event – which look is your favorite?

I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
P.S. I still have a few sessions available in March. If you’re interested in shooting send me an email at or you can find out more about blogger sessions here.
P.P.S. Are you going to the Pin Show this weekend in Dallas? I’ll be shooting at the end of the runway, so if you’re going I’d love to meet you!  I’ll most likely be the one in comfortable J. Crew flats ;)
