Below is a list of my favorite locations. These are tried and true locations that have gorgeous light and beautiful scenery!
Erwin Park – McKinney, Texas
Large park that has beautiful evening light. This location does not require a lot of walking because you can drive right up to most of the best spots for the session.
Russell Creek Park – Plano, Texas
This location has beautiful early morning light. If you can make an early morning session work this location is gorgeous and very easy to get to. A short walk from the parking lot and you are surrounded by large trees and big open grassy areas!
Arbor Hills Nature Preserve – Plano, Texas
Beautiful rural location that has a lot of wide open space, trees and a creek. It is a nature preserve so there tend to be more “critters” at this location but I have not run into any issues with them! 🙂 This location does require quite a bit of walking to get down into the good areas. I suggest bringing a stroller for younger kids and a comfortable pair of shoes!
Rose Garden Gazebo – Parker, Texas
Small park area in Parker that has a big grassy area with big trees and a cool old rustic barn! Easy to get to, just a short walk from the parking lot!
Adriatica Village – McKinney, Texas
Resembles a small, quaint European village. Lots of stone and rock walls and buildings with great architecture. There are some grassy areas and a large pond as well.
Breckenridge Park – Richardson, Texas
Very large park with many different options. Lots of trees and grassy areas and a creek. Does require a lot of walking so I recommend comfortable shoes and a stroller for younger kids. Great Spring locations with a lot of wildflowers.
These are just a few of my favorite locations – more to come!
