Dallas Senior Photos at Deep Ellum

Deep Ellum Senior photos, colorful senior photos, Dallas senior photos at Deep Ellum

Last week I did senior photos for Allison, a high school senior, at Deep Ellum. She wanted photos that were fun and colorful- so naturally Deep Ellum was the perfect place!

Deep Ellum is the perfect spot for senior photos in Dallas!

Allison was an awesome model, she was willing to sit in a slightly abandoned store, throw confetti (biodegradable, of course) and lean against the countless walls that are scattered across Deep Ellum.

Did you know that there are over 42 murals in Deep Ellum?

Since there are so many murals, it creates a completely different look for every single senior photo session I do in Deep Ellum. Another great perk? There’s a gorgeous park- Oak Lawn, just a 10 minute drive away. It’s a great way to introduce a little greenery or nature into your senior photos if you don’t want just the industrial look.

Senior portraits are how I started my photography business. It began when a few friends asked me to do their photos, I did them free, of course. (Actually I think they bought me a meal.) Then other people started asking me, and I thought, “well I guess I could charge for this”. I started doing super inexpensive shoots to build my portfolio, I loved it. I don’t do too many senior photos anymore, but everytime I do I remember how much I enjoy them.
