Dallas Blogger Katherine Nolden // Session 1

I have a new Dallas blogger I’d like to introduce you to – this is Katherine Nolden – she blogs at The Duchess of Plumewood and I’ve loved getting to shoot with her over the past few months.

For this session, we met in downtown Dallas on a rather windy but otherwise gorgeous evening.

One of the things I like about downtown is the constant change of scenery with every new block or building you walk by – we found this amazing little spot in between the roads with this beautiful background and stairs.

Sometimes it can be hard to find locations that match the look you’re wanting, but this neutral spot was perfect for her delicate, emerald dress.

Another aspect I like about downtown is the lighting – if you catch the light at just the right time coming through the buildings it can completely transform the entire shoot.

Here are a few of my favorites from my shoot with the lovely Katherine.

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

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 Brookedujour.com, 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 ;)

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?!)

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!
