This page is to help you pick a location for your upcoming photo shoot!  Let me know if you have any questions! 

Frisco Commons

This park in midtown Frisco is a photographer fav and is beautiful spring - fall.  Please note that the differences in photos are the changes in seasons 😃.
 

McCord Park - Little Elm

McCord Park has a mixture of shaded and open areas for an array of shots with different looks!   It is in a valley, so sunset is about an hour earlier than elsewhere.  The park is large so it's great for using my zoom lens and getting that beautiful "blur" behind you and your family.  *Note - the park turns into a lake after any significant rain and sometimes has no grass.

Warren Sports Park - Frisco

A CGP Classic - prob my most popular location. Warren is known for bright and sun lit photos  - with great accents to the photos for depth such as a bridge, a fence, and a pond.  This area is best in the 1-2 hours before sunset, or in the morning before 930 am, as it can be very bright otherwise.

Frisco Square

Frisco Square is SO diverse!   Urban look, arched walkway, plus a green "park" area.  You can't go wrong and you get a gallery full of options!  Plus, the trees never loose their leaves, so it's the best winter option, in my opinion. 

To see examples of Frisco Square in the winter, my fav location for winter, go here: https://www.christiegare.com/single-post/frisco-photographer-christie-gare-photography-llc-winter-session

Adriatica - McKinney

Such a beautiful and popular area to shoot! A great European Village feel to the whole area - lots of places to pose. Perfect for families and seniors.  Looks great year round!  I do not recommend Friday/Saturday/Sunday night shoots here, as it's overrun with photographers/prom/homecoming/etc.  The green hilly area is only available for sessions in the last 30 minutes of sunlight.

Love the urban look? Great spot for families, seniors, and headshots.  Note - all of the difference in background options depends on how long your session is - and the ability to walk around.  I recommend a 30 minute session here.

Cotton Mill - Mckinney

This location is an additional $75/30 minute session due to rental fees.

AWESOME popular wedding rustic venue located in Downtown Mckinney.  It has outdoor areas offered and inside -- usually we start inside and work our way outside, if there are no weddings scheduled that day.  

The indoor areas are very raw - birds flying, some holes in the wood, etc.  A waiver is required to shoot here.  But worth it! 

Studio House Mckinney GARAGE

Adorable indoor studio in downtown Mckinney area.  White couch, blue couch, and several chairs for posing options.  Black wall and white wall.  Fun garage door for great natural light! 

Please note - additional fee of $40 per half hour applies to this session location, as I do not own it and have to rent it in advance for your session. 

Prosper Silos

Live in Prosper and want to capture some of your little town feel?  Great area!  We will NOT be shooting on the railroad tracks, as that is illegal 😃.  

The Loft - McKinney

The Loft McKinney is in downtown McKinney - on a second story with beautiful natural light.  Features a bed with a boho vibe, brick, and stucco.   Great for newborns, lifestyle portraits, family sessions. etc.  Please note - additional fee of $35 per half hour applies to this session location, as I do not own it and have to rent it in advance for your session.
