Dallas Ultimate Women's Expo by Reina LeGrand

This last weekend I had the pleasure of being an Exhibitor at the Dallas Ultimate Women's Expo! I co-hosted with my BPF (Best Photographer Friend), Laura Levitan, @ Mod L Photography, who is an AMAZING Dallas Maternity Photographer & Dallas Newborn Photographer, located in the Dallas & Richardson Area. We had an absolute BLAST together, and meeting so many women in the DFW area. 

My clients typically come to me for Beauty/Glamour sessions, High School Senior sessions, and Family and Children sessions, and those are what I consider my specialties. (And of course, any time one of those clients wants to do something amazing and "over the top", that is my TRUE favorite session type.) And my clients usually come from the Fort Worth, Keller, Colleyville, Argyle & North Richland Hills areas. Basically, the NW side of Dallas/Fort Worth.

That's one of the reasons that I loved partnering with Laura. Her clients are usually on the Dallas, Frisco, Plano and Richardson areas, and she specializes in Newborn photography, (which I no longer "do"), so we make a great partnership in covering all of the special moments that happen in a woman's life. Between the two of us, we also cover both the west and east sides of Dallas/Fort Worth.

Anyway, we had a great time at the Expo! It was our first time being Exhibitors, and so we came massively over prepared with all of our decor and samples. We really wanted to invoke the feeling of our own respective studios and so we brought furniture and artwork from our own places and combined it to create a cohesive and beautiful space! We had a ton of compliments and I really think we were able to achieve our vision.

Our product samples were also SUPER popular! In today's digital age, many people have forgotten the beauty of holding a beautiful album in their hands, and looking through it. My albums are handmade in Italy and are GORGEOUS. I got actual gasps from many of the Expo attendees when I showed them my sample album. And I spoke with one lady who stopped dead in her tracks as she was walking by our booth, and said "That is ART! That is not a picture, that is MUCH MORE than a picture, that is ART!", pointing at one of our displayable albums. It was such a compliment and attested to why we do the things we do! We create ART for your family for today, and for your future generations!
 

Overall we had a really wonderful time meeting with so many of the beautiful women of Dallas! We are super excited to be working with some of you on upcoming portrait sessions, and look forward to meeting with more of you in the future to plan out your portrait sessions!! 

 

 

Dallas Fort Worth Best Photography Locations by Reina LeGrand

In the photography world, as well as the realty world, it’s often all about, LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION! Second only to wardrobe (and okay, hair and makeup for the ladies), the location you choose for your photography session is key.

Because of its importance in setting the tone of your portraits, the location of your photography session is something I go over in-depth with my clients during our initial phone consultation, and during our in-person consultation.

At Reina LeGrand Photography, I offer the option and convenience of studio sessions. An in-studio is best suited for glamour and beauty sessions, senior, child and small family formal portrait sessions. One of the advantages to studio sessions, is of course, the comforts of the indoors.

On-location works great for all session types.

In the DFW, Dallas-Fort Worth area, there are many, many amazing outdoor locations to choose from. Sometimes I just stumble on a location while driving around and just have to drag my kids or clients over for a photography session. Whether it's rural or urban you're looking for, you'll have plenty to choose from.
