Downtown McKinney is a hidden gem filled with picturesque streets, alleyways and storefronts. Recently, Downtown McKinney was the backdrop for a family photo session with a cute little family of three. As some of you probably know, part of doing a family photo session in downtown Mckinney is navigating the bustling streets filled with lots of cars and lots of people coming in and out of the stores with all of their shopping bags!
Downtown McKinney’s irresistible charm creates a visually appealing location, and with so much going on all the time, it is also an exciting challenge. Many of the store fronts create the perfect backdrops for a family photo session. This cute family was happy to stroll around the square with me, stopping when we saw things we loved and wanted to use as the backdrop for a photo.
From spiral staircases to fun graffiti, there are so many places to stop to take pictures. And the rain did not slow us down at all. It was a stormy afternoon, so the square was not as crowded as it normally is which worked out perfectly for us on this day. We hopped around from awning to awning to escape the rain, popping out into the streets when the rain let up for a few minutes here and there.
It’s important to note that Downtown McKinney might not be the ideal location for those seeking serene and secluded settings, or may not be the right place if you have small children. If you’re someone who prefers vast open fields or tranquil landscapes, Downtown McKinney might initially feel overwhelming. However, for those who embrace the vibrant energy of a bustling downtown, it offers a refreshing change of pace. Just come prepared to exercise patience, often waiting for groups of people and cars to pass by as we pose for pictures.
But if you don’t mind a busy backdrop for your photos, the streets and foot traffic in Downtown McKinney can actually enhance the charm of your pictures. Candid shots of your family strolling hand in hand, surrounded by all the action unfolding around them, captures the true spirit of the city.
Downtown McKinney worked out great for this family photo session, but it is also one of my favorite locations for senior sessions. The combination of historical architecture, colorful storefronts, and a lively atmosphere provides a perfect backdrop for capturing fun photos of seniors embarking on a new chapter in their lives.
This favorite spot of mine is perfect for families seeking a change from open fields but also serves as an excellent choice for senior sessions. If you’re looking for a fun, unique place for family or senior sessions, Downtown McKinney might be just the place for your next session.
