Downtown Dallas Senior Photos: Maggie


Maggie was a part of Team Seventeen this year and she was heavily involved with DECA at New Tech @ Coppell High School. She’s traveled extensively this year for DECA and she was just elected into an international level position.

Maggie wanted an urban look for her senior portraits so we went to Downtown Dallas, around the DMA, and next to the Winspear Opera House.

We started just outside of the Dallas Museum of Art. On the other side of those trees are parking meters!

There’s a little nook right next to FIG (Fashion Industry Gallery) that is a total hidden gem in Downtown Dallas.

When you photograph senior pictures in the Spring, especially in a city setting, you get to work with both sunshine and shade. We stopped by a church that had a great “university” look to it for Maggie’s pictures with her college shirt.

I love this tradition of senior overalls at Coppell High School. It’s so fun to see what the girls come up with to personalize their overalls. If you’re not familiar with senior overalls, the seniors wear their personalized overalls to football games throughout the season.

Sometimes, the best spots for senior pictures are simply on the street. We were across the street from the Dallas Museum of Art and there’s a brick parking structure. I gives such a great urban vibe.

Maggie asked me if she could bring her prom dress to her photo shoot. That’s one of the advantages to shooting your senior pictures in the spring! You’ll probably have your prom dress and you can be photographed in it. Now you’ll get to wear your dress twice.

The Winspear Opera House is a great location for senior pictures in Downtown Dallas. For one, it’s free to photograph there, so that’s a win for both my client and myself. Also, there are a variety of areas to take photos, from stairs, to a reflection pool, to a grassy area.

Maggie served as an officer for DECA where she did a ton of traveling to conferences and DECA related events.
